The PGA Tour returns to TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas for this years Shriners Children’s Open. 2021 Champion Sungjae Im returns to the field defend his title at +1100. 2017 Champion, and fellow competitor 2 weeks ago for the President’s Cup, Patrick Cantlay also returns the field as the betting favorite at +650. Other top contenders by listed odds are Max Homa (+1800), Aaron Wise (+2000) and Tom Kim (+2200).
Patrick Cantlay (+650) – Cantlay looked to be in really good form at Quail Hollow. After taking a week off, Cantlay looks to be in a good position to back up his price as the favorite. He has a stellar history at TPC Summerlin and he’s in good form. No brainer.
Cameron Davis (+4200) – I’m fully invested into a lot of the President’s Cup guys this week. Team format with the intensity of match play can do wonders for a player mentally when returning to full field stroke play formats. Davis was a guy who showed his potential at Quail Hollow, and if it isn’t this week in Vegas, he has a win coming soon.
Alex Noren (+4200) – Noren turned pro in 2005 and is still in search of his first career victory. He came fairly close last year, with 3 top 10’s including a runner-up finish. The fall is for story lines. And this is a good one.
Mito Pereira (+6000) – I wasn’t joking about being all in on the guys that were in Charlotte two weeks ago. But, regardless of that, Pereira is mispriced. This is a guy who had the PGA Championship in the palm of his hand. 60-1 in a field missing most of the world’s top 20 is way too good of value.
Top 5 Finishes
Tom Kim (+500) – No Theegala this week, so it’s mandatory I have a Tom Kim ticket. He certainly cemented his place in the world of golf in Charlotte. He’s fun. But he’s also really good. TPC Summerlin requires precise iron play and the 20 year old certainly brings that to the table.
Si Woo Kim (+900) – This is quite literally the best value I have seen in a long time. Max play. I may be overestimating the importance of what the match play event can do for a player’s confidence, but Kim’s victory over Justin Thomas to kick-off Sunday singles had to do wonders for his. We saw it with Scottie Scheffler after he beat Jon Rahm at the Ryder Cup. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Si-Woo Kim breakout in his own fashion.
Top 10 Finishes
Tom Hoge (+205) – Hoge isn’t the type to jump out to an early lead & blow it. He’ll hang around the cut line Thursday and Friday and play good enough over the weekend to sneak into the Top 10.
Justin Lower (+750) – The Justin Lower story is really fricken cool. It’s bigger than golf for him at this point & it’s hard not to root for him. He finished T4 at Fortinet and really had a look at a win. Top 20 was probably the safer play but the price is good.
Top 20 Finishes
Max Homa (+115) – He is as consistent as they come in the world of golf. I put 3 units on Max & he probably deserves more.
