How Phoenix Open Shapes Up

The WM Phoenix Open is one of the marquee events of the early PGA Tour season and home to one of the most raucous atmospheres in golf.

Fans regularly fill the stadium-like par 3 16th hole, making it a party atmosphere for all four rounds at TPC Scottsdale.

The course is a par 71 and plays just over 7,250 yards. This year’s event will consist of 132 players and includes some of the biggest names in golf, with six of the world’s top 10-ranked players taking part.

No. 1 Jon Rahm leads the field, along with Viktor Hovland (3), Patrick Cantlay (4), Justin Thomas (7), Xander Schauffele (8) and Hideki Matsuyama (10).

Jon Rahm is the betting favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook (+700) and will be a fan favorite. Rahm is an Arizona State graduate and has had success in the event, finishing no worse than 16th over his past five starts and has recorded three top 10 finishes in his previous six starts at TPC Scottsdale.

Brooks Kopeka is the defending champion of the Tournament. Koepka is +3200 to repeat at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Best Bet to Win

Justin Thomas +1200

Former winners at this event have excelled in strokes gained: approach-the-green and in strokes gained: off-the-tee. One player who is near the top in both categories is Justin Thomas, who has found recent success in Phoneix.

In his last three starts, Thomas finished 13th, third and third. He’s the best iron player in the field and over his last 24 rounds, is 21st in strokes gained: off-the-tee and third in strokes gained: approach-the-green.

Putting is always key for Thomas’ success and two of his top 20 putting performances have come at TPC Scottsdale. If he can find some consistency on the greens, his ball-striking could propel him to victory.

Thomas has been in solid form this year, taking fifth in the Tournament of Champions where he had to overcome an opening 74 before firing a 61 on Saturday. He also had two strong rounds at the Farmers Insurance Open, recording a 4-under 68 at the Torrey Pines South Course and a 9-under 63 at the Torrey Pines North Course.

Justin Thomas’ best odds to win are over at BetMGM Sportsbook where he is +1200.


Kyoung-Hoon Lee +13000

In the gambling golf community, K.H. Lee is affectionally known as TPC Lee for his success at TPC courses. Lee earned his only career win last year at the AT&T Byron Nelson, which was played at TPC Craig Ranch.

He also took sixth at the 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities. And while Koepka received well-deserved fanfare for overcoming a five-stroke deficit before the final round to win last year’s Waste Management Phoneix Open, Lee was a runner-up, finishing just one stroke back.

A longshot who has had success at TPC courses and was runner-up a year ago is worth a flier at this number.

Best Prop

Kyoung-Hoon Lee Top South Korean Player +200 (FanDuel)

Each of the three major sportsbooks has this prop, but BetMGM has Lee at +165 as the top South Korean, while DraftKings is at +170. Just for line shopping alone, I like the +200 value with Lee at FanDuel.

Lee only has to beat three other people, including the favorite in this prop, Si Woo Kim (+140), and Seung-Yul Noh (+380) and Sung-Hoon Kang (+380).

Kim is a legitimate threat with 11th-place finishes at the Farmers Open and The American Express, while Noh and Kang are more likely to miss the cut than seriously contend.

Kang has missed the cut in three of his last four starts, while Noh enters having finished 67th, 74th and 42nd in his last three events. Kang missed the cut in last year’s Waste Management Phoenix Open and Noh didn’t see the weekend last time he played in this tournament back in 2020.

This prop likely turns into a head-to-head matchup between Lee and Kim by the weekend, and I would rather spend my PGA Tour betting dollars on the better number for the golfer who is coming off a runner-up finish at the event.
