Betting Note: Betting amounts are based on confidence level. My normal betting amounts are $125, $250 & $500, although I will go as low as $62.50 and as high as $1,000 on occasion.

E/W (Each-Way) bets means you split that amount. So if it is a $250 E/W bet, that means $125 on them to win, $125 on them to place (Usually in the Top 5).

Golf is back for the 2020 season and we’ve got one tournament to pay attention this week, which is the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

A decent amount of players are skipping this one such as Brooks, Rory and Molinari. We’ve got a field of 34 for a quieter tournament which is fine with me. I prefer it from a betting perspective as it allows me to ease my way in before getting on with the tips.

It starts tomorrow afternoon and is only for golfers who have won a tournament in the previous calendar year.

Last years winner was Xander Schauffele who beat Woodland by just 1 stroke. A fair bit off the win by DJ the year prior who finished ahead by 8 strokes.

Let’s see what we got. Oh and I hope everyone had a good holiday season!

Tournament of Champions 2020 Betting Tips:

Rahm is the favourite at 9/2. LIke often in golf one guy is rightly the heavy favourite but the odds just aren’t there in my opinion. DJ is tempting but I want to see more from him after his knee surgery.

Patrick Cantlay 2/1: 1u to finish Top 5. I stayed away from the E/W bet on Cantlay which only rewards top 4. I honestly find it hard to see him winning. However I think he will contend. There’s been a few chances to the course to make it go faster and I think he will benefit from that. He had a disappointing 15th place finish when he played here two years ago but I like him to be a contender here.

Brendan Todd 35/1 : 1/8u to win & E/W. His odds have dropped from 45/1 to 35/1 over the past couple of days however he is still completely bettable in my opinion – just dropping it from 1/4u to 1/8u. He last played here a few years ago and came 8th. Last time we saw him he was in some fine form and I hope he will be itching for this one.

Gary Woodland: 14/1: 1/8u to win & E/W. He should be in here as defending champion. He had an excellent tournament last time out and I think he can contend here and possibly surprise.

Graeme McDowell: 125/1. 1/8u to win & E/W I just wanted a long shot bet and looking at everyone above 50/1 he stuck out to me. Kevin Na was right tempting and he’s had the experience here however I fancy McDowell to surprise.


Since 2014 I've been providing free golf tips on a weekly basis. Each tournament analysis, research and writing the betting tips takes over 10 hours per tournament. That doesn’t include watching each tournament and taking notes etc. It's why I do less and less non-PGA tips these days.

I’ve delivered a lot of big winners over the years, and all I ask is if you appreciate the work I put in and so I can continue to keep the tips free, a donation is highly recommended and much appreciated.

While I obviously make enough money from my golf bets, this sort of financial support would motivate me to write more content on here. This would include golf prop bets like first round leader, head vs head and much more plus daily fantasy golf articles. Cheers!
