How Tournament Of Champions Shapes Up

The Sentry Tournament of Champions is the first PGA TOUR event of the year, and since winners from the previous season automatically qualify, this tournament features a loaded field.

Eight of the top 10 players in the world make up the 39-player field with only Rory McIlroy declining to take part in the no-cut event.

Expect low scores at the Plantation Course at Kapalua. Five of the last six winning scores have been 22-under or better and the wide fairways allow for some margin of error of the tee. The course measures out at 7,596 yards and is a par 73 with just three par 3s.

Here are some bets to look for when the PGA TOUR starts the 2022 portion of its season on Thursday. All odds are from DraftKings.

Best Bet to Win

Jordan Spieth +1800

It’s difficult to project where everyone’s game is at for the first event of the season. How much have they been playing? What have they been working on during the offseason? We really don’t know until this tournament, which eliminates recent form as a tool to project what could happen this weekend.

There’s not any clear value for your PGA Tour betting in this event, especially considering you can make a case for any of the top players in the world listed at odds from Jon Rahm at +750 to Brooks Koepka at +3000.

Give me someone who has had consistent success at this course. In his last four outings at Kapalua, Spieth has finished ninth, tied for third, first and second. Spieth also leads the field in average strokes gained at Kapalua at +2.81, edging out Xander Schauffele (+2.55) and Sungjae Im (+2.40).

The key for Spieth is always with the flat stick. If he can remain consistent on the greens, his elite ball-striking will put him in contention this week.


Phil Mickelson +10000

A no-cut event at a forgiving course could allow the 51-year old Mickelson to catch some of the magic that led him to the PGA Championship last year. The wider fairways won’t penalize Mickelson as much for his misses off of the tee and eight par 4s are under 425 yards, which should give him ample chances to stick his second shots close in with a wedge.

No, Mickelson isn’t likely to win. But if you’re looking for a true longshot for your golf wagering, he deserves at least a look at these odds.

Best Prop

Bryson DeChambeau to make an eagle in Round 1 (+450)

No player is set to take advantage of the wide fairways and par 5s better than DeChambeau. Last year DeChambeau led the TOUR in strokes gained off the tee (78.987). He was also tied for the par 5 scoring average lead at 4.45, and over the last 24 rounds, he has gained the most strokes on par 5s (+18.9).

For these reasons, I’m going with DeChambeau to make an eagle in Round 1 as a top prop bet. In addition to the par 5s at Kapalua, the drivable 305-yard par 4 14th hole presents another opportunity for DeChambeau to make an eagle. And depending on the weather, DeChambeau could have a short iron or a wedge into the green on the par 5s with none of them longer than 550 yards.
