This week, the LPGA Tour returns to the golf schedule with the 2021 Pure Silk Championship.
Before I discuss my favorite golf bets for this week’s LPGA Tour event let’s take a look at the golf course the field will play and the key player statistics that I think are the most vital to a golfer’s success at this week’s 2021 Pure Silk Championship.
The 2021 Pure Silk Championship will be played at the Kingsmill Resort & Spa (River Course) in Williamsburg, Virginia. This track is a par 71 that measures 6,326 yards. This golf course will present this week’s field with tree lined fairways and bentgrass greens. This track also has 91 bunkers that are strategically placed throughout the golf course. Water is in play on 11 of the 18 holes. It should also be noted that the River Course is a Pete Dye design.
The key player statistics that I will be focusing on this week are driving accuracy, GIR (greens in regulation), strokes gained tee to green, and strokes gained around the green.
The Kingsmill Resort & Spa (River Course) has been the host of the Pure Silk Championship since it debuted on the LPGA Tour in 2003. The 2020 edition of this event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Let’s transition to what I love doing the most! Here are my favorite wagers for the 2021 Pure Silk Championship.
Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top five.
Brooke Henderson +175 – The 23 year old Canadian has been playing some outstanding golf over the course of the last two months. Henderson has three top 19 finishes in her last four tournaments played on the LPGA Tour, including a win at the HUGEL-AIR PREMIA LA Open last month.
Henderson currently ranks first in GIR (greens in regulation-79.96%), eighth in driving distance (277.21), and 11th in scoring average (69.64) on the LPGA Tour.
Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top 20.
Madelene Sagstrom +335 – The 28 year old has two top 26 finishes in her last five events played on the LPGA Tour, including an 11th place result at the HSBC Women’s World Championship three weeks ago.
Sagstrom also checks the box for me when it comes to previous event history. Sagstrom has played the Pure Silk Championship three times since 2017. In those three tournaments just mentioned, Sagstrom has two top seven finishes, including a second place result at the 2019 Pure Silk Championship.
