This week, the PGA Tour travels to Florida for the WGC Workday Championship @ Concession.
*This WGC event was originally scheduled to occur in Mexico. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic this tournament’s location was shifted to the state of Florida.
Before I discuss my three favorite golf bets for the 2021 WGC Workday Championship @ Concession let’s take a look at the golf course the field will play this week.
This year’s 2021 WGC Workday Championship will be played at the Concession in Bradenton, Florida. The Concession is a par 72 that measures 7,474 yards. This track features 13 water hazards and 73 sand traps that are strategically placed throughout the golf course. I should also note that the Concession is a Jack Nicklaus designed golf course.
Now let’s turn our attention to my favorite golf bets for the 2021 WGC Workday Championship @ Concession.
Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to win.
Jon Rahm +1000 – Since the beginning of September, Jon Rahm has played nine events on the PGA Tour. In those nine events just mentioned, Rahm has seven top 13 finishes, including a seventh place finish at the Masters.
In relation to this week’s current listed 2021 WGC Workday Championship @ Concession field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Rahm ranks second in strokes gained tee to green, second in strokes gained approach, second in GIR (greens in regulation) and eighth in bogey avoidance.
Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top five.
Tony Finau +350 – The 31 year old American arrives at this week’s World Golf Championship event on the heels of four consecutive top five finishes (PGA and European Tours combined), including a second place result at last week’s Genesis Invitational.
Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top ten.
Patrick Reed +500 – Reed has always been the type of professional golfer that clearly gets highly motivated for the big events on the PGA Tour schedule. Let’s take a look at a few of Reed’s wins on the PGA Tour’s biggest stages. The American won the 2014 WGC Cadillac Championship, the 2018 Masters, and the 2020 WGC Mexico Championship. I also like the fact that Reed arrives at this event in very good form. Reed won the Farmers Insurance Open three weeks ago. There is no doubt in my mind that Reed should finish inside the top ten this week.
