🏌️‍♂️ Outright winner picks


❌ The Favorite (FADE):

Jon Rahm


As we did last week with Bryson, we're fading the favorite in this one. Dustin Johnson was the favorite here but having withdrawn due to COVID-19, the mantle was passed onto Spaniard Jon Rahm.

LISTEN: Tail and Print's CJ Cup preview 

As with a lot of these top guys, Rahm's focus will be on next month's Masters and at just +900, he simply doesn't present enough value at the moneyline this week.

Speaking of the top guys, Brooks Koepka returns from injury this week and is available at a crazy +260 with PointsBet just to finish in the Top-10! Join now and receive $150 in free bets after your first $50 deposit!


💰 Top Pick:

Patrick Cantlay (18/1*)

Bet $10, win $180


Many people had Cantlay as their top pick last week at Shriners and he was looking like a serious chance for most of the week before collapsing on the final day with a 2-over 73.

Although he struggled on the Sunday, he was in unbelievable touch for most of the tournament and that form is too hard to ignore. He will be out to rectify his poor finish and as one of the few top-ranked golfers with some recent competitive reps under his belt, he should be ready to go.

🔮 Hail Mary:

Cameron Smith (90/1*)

Bet $10, win $900


Our last two Hail Mary picks have been extremely solid with Kristoffer Ventura finishing T6 a couple of weeks ago before Harold Varner III was right in the mix at Shriners before finishing T13.

This week we've gone with Australian Cameron Smith, again at 90/1. With the near success of our last two picks, we suggest taking Smith to finish Top-10 at 14/1, while throwing a few bucks at him to win outright too.

The 27 year-old struggled upon his return to golf in June but is now on a run of eight-straight cuts made and is primed to make a push for his third PGA Tour win and second of the calendar year, after he won the Sony Open back in January.
