While lots of golfers are playing the Scottish Open, don't forget about the 2023 Barbasol Championship! Will a hungry youngster like Taylor Pendrith (+1600) or Peter Kuest (+2200) break through for an outright win? Or will a savvy old veteran like Kevin Streelman (+3000) prove to be too tough?
Here are 3 best bets to load up your weekend card! Best of luck with all of your golf bets this week!
Michael Gligic has got to be excited to about this weekend’s event for several reasons. He has missed the cut in 4 consecutive starts after shooting 9 over at the John Deere.
However, this week, he heads to the Barbasol Championship where he should be able to snap that streak. After finishing 19th in 2021, he followed that up with a 21st finish last year. His work off the tee is what has been keeping him afloat on Tour.
He is ranked 55th in strokes gained off the tee and will use that advantage this weekend. The price point here is great for a player we know has the chops to get close to Top 20 in the event.
While Andy Sullivan has yet to participate in the Barbasol Championship, Kramer Hickok has twice in the last 3 years. In 2019, he finished inside the Top 25 with a 24th place finish and followed that last year with a 13th place finish.
He should feel comfortable against a lesser field than what he has been competing against recently. Sullivan does his work on the DP World Tour and might be a bit over his head here and that is what we are banking on.
Norman played well in his only event this season. He finished tied for 66th at the US Open. In fact, he bettered Pendrith who missed the cut.
However, Pendrith looked a lot better at the RMC where he finished tied for 14th. And that is a great sign as he heads into the tournament where he has been a monster.
He finished 11th in 2021 and 13th last season. He should be in contention once again this weekend and pick up the W in this matchup for us.
