After all the drama at The Open Championship in Scotland last week, the PGA Tour returns to North American soil for the RBC Canadian Open in Oakville, Ontario. The event will once again be held at the magnificent Glen Abbey course, a Par 72 that is about as challenging as they come. The course has been undergoing some work after winter damage, which means that 8 of the greens will have different grass than the other 10 holes. That could pose a problem for golfers as they try to gauge green speeds over this golf betting weekend.
As always, there are a number of players coming in with a real shot at taking home the $1.044 million top prize. Competition is sure to be tough, as there are no less than 5 players from the top 15 in the world competing in the event. Those guys are sure to be among the favorites, so let’s take a look at who might be among the final groups come Sunday afternoon.
Taking a Sneak Peek at the Golf Betting Predictions on 2015 RBC Canadian Open in Ontario
Day with Best Golf Betting Lines
Jason Day has to be the pick of the bunch, as he is having a very, very good year. He was near the top of the leaderboard all last weekend at St. Andrews, and will feel as though he should have walked away with the Claret Jug. That was the second major that Day has been in contention for this season, and it somewhat highlights the knock on him, with many believing that he lacks the killer instinct to be a regular winner on tour. Will he prove the doubters wrong this weekend?
One player who is coming into this tournament in magnificent form is Bruce Koepka. The 25-year old may not yet be a household name, but he soon will be if he continues this run of form. Koepka has finished in the top 20 in 4 of his last 5 events, and is in the top 10 in a number of the major driving and putting stats. He is a player that can be had at a very good price.
Veteran Jim Furyk is coming in as one of the favorites in this tournament, and it’s easy to understand why. Furyk is always steady, if somewhat unspectacular, which means that he is consistently near the top of every tournament he takes part in. He has won the Canadian open twice in the past, but it should be noted that he has never done so at Glen Abbey.
Bubba Watson and Matt Kuchar are another pair of guys to keep an eye on, but I believe it will be Jason Day who comes out on top in this one. I really would take a strong look at Koepka, though, as he is a very solid bet.
