Nailing the winner in a golf tournament is always tricky, but that’s even more the case this week at Kiawah Island, South Carolina. There’s no true favorite, and the windy circumstances surrounding the course will shake up the leaderboard over the course of the week. Rory McIlroy leads the field at +1100, or 11-1, meaning you’d win $1100 on a $100 bet at BetMGM.
Jordan Spieth (+1400) is the tournament’s other must-watch figure from a legacy standpoint, since this is all he needs to win the career Grand Slam.
Jon Rahm (+1400) isn’t yet at that best-to-never-win-a-major stage of his career, but by the numbers, he’s the best player on tour not to win a major yet. It’ll happen, sooner rather than later. Justin Thomas is (+1400) to win.
Dustin Johnson (+1600) ought to be comfortable playing in his home state. Bryson DeChambeau (+1600) won’t be able to unleash his usual power on this course, since leaving the fairway is so punitive, but if he can throttle back and stay accurate, he’ll be in fine shape.
Some players outside the traditional titans who are drawing notice thanks to their recent play: Daniel Berger (+2800), Viktor Hovland (+2000) and Sam Burns (+4000). And Xander Schauffele (+2000) is heading toward that fabled bet-him-til-he-wins status.
