The Top Five Golfers To Bet On

Brooks Koepka

The world No. 10 has been out since August with a knee injury and missed the U.S. Open. Prior to that, Koepka suffered a collapse in the final round at the PGA Championship and missed the cut in the Wyndham Championship before withdrawing from the US Open. Still, the four-time major champion should be completely healthy and fired up from the outset after winning this event in 2018.

Collin Morikawa +2200

In a whopping 21 events last season, Morikawa recorded a pair of wins, one second place finish and seven Top-10 finishes while making the cut a blistering 19 times. While the 23-year-old Californian missed the cut in each of his last two events at the U.S. Open and last week’s Shriners Open, Morikawa is so talented I believe he could very well overcome his recent woes with a win in Las Vegas.

Scottie Scheffler +4000

Sure, the 24-year-old Texan has cooled off with a T37 finish in the Sanderson Farms Championship two weeks ago while missing the cut in the Shriners Open last week, but I believe now that some of the pressure is off, Scheffler can get back to his red-hot ways. In 23 events last season, Scheffler recorded a pair of third place finishes and seven Top-10 finishes while closing out the campaign with a pair of T4 finishes and a fifth place finish over his last four appearances. I’m thinking Scheffler will challenge for the win.

Justin Thomas

Third in the world rankings, the 27-year-old Thomas won three times in 18 events last season while recording a pair of second place finishes, one third place finish and ten, Top-10 finishes. Thomas finished an encouraging T8 at the US Open and should easily challenge for his third CJ Cup victory, even if it doesn’t come in South Korea.

Matthew Wolff

Now, a stunning 12th in the world rankings, 21-year-old Matthew Wolff is a player with an extremely bright future who just so happens to be one of the hottest golfers on the planet right now. In 21 events last season, Wolff recorded one second place finish and a pair of Top-10 finishes. Wolff also racked up nine Top 25 finishes while making the cut 16 times. More importantly, Wolff closed out his 2019-20 season with a T4 in the PGA Championship before recording a T44 in the Northern Trust and a T16 in the BMW Championship. Better yet, Wolff has gotten the new season started off with a second place finish in the U.S. Open and a T2 in last week’s Shriners Hospital for Children Open. Make no mistake about it, Wolff is on fire!
