The Bermuda Championship will be the golfing action that all fans will be looking forward to this weekend, and all of the biggest names on the PGA Tour will be involved. The event will be taking place at the Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton, Bermuda. The action here will kickstart what is expected to be an exciting couple of weeks for the sport.
Among the favourites for the event with BetXChange will be Henrik Stenson, Will Zalatoris and Brendon Todd. But, could there be some options for profit for gamblers looking to bet on the event this year?
History Of The PGA Tour: Bermuda Championship
The Bermuda Championship is one of the newest events on the PGA Tour, with the first instalment of the competition taking place just last year. The winner of this event in 2019 was Brendon Todd, who won by four strokes from Harry Higgs.
He ended the Bermuda Championship with a score of -260, which due to it being the first instalment is the record for the event. The prize fund in the event in 2019 was $3 million, but that has been increased to $4 million for the 2020 instalment of the event.
There will also be additional weight on the event this year, as the winner will get a place in the Masters next year. The main reason for that is due to the cancellation of the WGC-HSBC Champions this season.
The win for Todd was just one of the seven professional wins that he has recorded. Success in this event last year was used as a springboard for Todd, as he went on to win the Mayakoba Golf Classic just 15 days later. The runner-up in this event last year was Harry Higgs, who was looking for the third professional victory of his career.
Who Should Gamblers Be Looking Out For This Year?
There is a competitive field of players for gamblers to look at in this weekend’s competition, with Will Zalatoris set to start among the favourites. Zalatoris is one of the brightest players on the PGA circuit, but he has won just one professional event. That success came in the TPC Colorado Championship earlier this year.
His stock has continued to rise this year after he finished in sixth place in the U.S. Open. There will be pressure on two of the biggest names in the field, with both Henrik Stenson and Danny Willett looking for a big win. There is certainly each-way value on the latter of those two stars.
Meanwhile, Todd will be the second favourite in the betting as he looks for a second consecutive victory in this event. He would appear to be good value to achieve that, as his ranking has improved since the event last year, and his performances this season have got better and better. Adding consistency to his game has been the biggest improvement for him, and he could be a solid pick to follow up his success last year with another win this weekend.
