There will be more top-5 players at this coming weekend’s Workday Charity Open than in last week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic, which had zero. This time, Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, and Brooks Koepka will all play, adding star power to the field. Read on for more about this event along with some favorites, sleepers, and long shots.
Betting Preview for the 2020 Workday Charity Open PGA Golf Tournament Running from July 9 to 12 2020
Where: Muirfield Golf Club, Dublin, Ohio
When: July 9-12, 2020
TV Broadcast: ESPN/CBS
Justin Thomas (+1100)
Thomas has had his ups and downs at Muirfield. He’s finished with a couple of top 10s and a trio of missed cuts over his past five starts there. Speaking of his inconsistencies, he’s finished T10 at the Charles Schwab Challenge before a T8 at the RBC Heritage followed by a missed cut at the Travelers Championship.
Jon Rahm (+1200)
Rahm skipped last week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic, which could be a good thing for him after having a T33 at the RBC Heritage and a T37 at the Travelers Championship. Rahm, however, has four top 10s on the season, including his runner-up finish at the Farmers Insurance Open last January. Rahm is eighth on the Tour with a scoring average of 69.48.
Patrick Cantlay (+1400)
Cantlay also did not play at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, but he was on a solid form even before that tournament. He’s finished no worse than a T17 in all his previous six official PGA Tour starts. Cantlay, who had a T40 at the Safeway Open, his first start of the season, has two top 10s in six starts this year. He is fourth on the season with a 73.15 greens in regulations percentage.
Matt Kuchar (+4000)
Kuchar does seem to love playing at Muirfield. Outside of his bad showing there last year, Kuchar had made 11 straight cuts from 2007 to 2018 at the Muirfield. Among those starts resulted in a win and three other top 5s.
Matthew Wolff (+5000)
Sometimes, it’s all about riding who’s got the hot hand — or club. Wolff has missed the cut 10 times in 14 starts this season, but he’s rebounded from back-to-back missed cuts to finish runner-up at the Rocket Mortgage Classic last week. He might be turning the corner.
J B Holmes (+15000)
Holmes has made just seven starts so far this season. His last official PGA Tour start resulted in a T51 at The Genesis Open last February. His best finish this season was a T14 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Kyle Stanley (+15000)
Stanley has missed the cut twice in his last three starts, and that’s at the RBC Heritage and at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. He did show some promise when he finished with a T3 at the Puerto Rico Open last February.
Justin Thomas wins the Workday Charity Open.
