Since winning the Texas Open for his 4th PGA Tour win on April 21st, Charley Hoffman finished 11th at the Zurich Classic, missed the cut at the Players and finished tied for 12th last week at the Byron Nelson. Ryan Palmer missed the cut last week. While the meltdown is not a good sign, Jordan Spieth did miss the cut the week before at the Players in his first start since the Masters so he is rounding into form and he did tie for 2nd place in this tournament last year.
3. Kirk missed the cut in his last start at the Players. Patrick Reed has finished alone in 2nd place three times this season but has not won a tournament since January of 2015. Scott won this tournament in 2014 beating Jason Dufner in a playoff. Danny Lee has one win on tour and he finished tied for 18th last week. Haas has six PGA Tour wins and he was second at the Valspar in March so he’s a mild threat to win this week. He’s a big threat this week to win.
T-11. Matt Kuchar has not won a PGA Tour event in over two years now and he should be higher odds to win this week.
Listed below are the betting odds and comments for each player who has odds of 50 to 1 or less to win this week. Jordan Spieth was in position to win last week at the Byron Nelson playing with Brooks Koepka in the final pairing Sunday just two strokes back but Spieth shot a 74 and ended up tied for 18th place. Patton Kizzire is 30 and still looking for his first PGA Tour win.
The 2016 Dean & DeLuca golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from May 26-29, 2016, at the Colonial Country Club located in Fort Worth, Texas. Players like Phil Mickelson, Lee Trevino and Zach Johnson are tied for the second most wins with two each.
Boo Weekley won this tournament in 2013. He won the Puerto Rico Open for his first career win at the end of March. Brandt Snedeker has missed the cut in his last two starts and in three of his last four tournaments but he did tie for 2nd place here last year just one stroke off the lead.
1. Bill Haas, Ryan Palmer – 45 to 1 odds each
4. In his last four tournaments he’s failed to crack the top 25 and he finished last week tied for 66th. Nuff said. He’s a mild threat here to get his 6th PGA win here. On top of that, Bohn suffered a heart attack during the Honda Classic back in February. That was the last of his three PGA Tour wins.
Good luck to all the PGA golfers and especially the bettors this week at the 2016 Dean & DeLuca Invitational at Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas!
T-7. Kevin Chappell – 28 to 1
Kevin Na has one career win in 314 starts. Adam Scott – 11 to 1. Chappell is lower odds here because he finished alone in 2nd place at the Players in his last start. Ben Hogan holds the record for most wins in the tournament with five. Chris Kirk, Charl Schwartzel – 35 to 1 odds each
David Toms won this tournament in 2011. After missing the cut in his two previous starts, Jimmy Walker tied for 24th last week. Here is a list of the betting odds for the PGA golfers to win the 2016 Dean & DeLuca Invitational.
The Dean & DeLcua Invitational dates back to 1946. Adam Scott has two wins in 2016 and 13 total wins on the PGA Tour. Jimmy Walker, Brandt Sendeker, Danny Lee, Jason Dufner – 40 to 1 odds each
Other than a 5th place finish at the Arnold Palmer in March, Zach Johnson has not played well enough to win in 2016. Jim Furyk has one win on tour since 2010 and he’s making just his third start back after wrist surgery. Jordan Spieth – 6 to 1
2. Don’t be fooled, though, as Kuchar also finished 3rd at the Players but that is not winning. Louis Oosthuizen’s lone PGA win remains the 2010 British Open and he missed the cut last week.
Chris Kirk is the defending champion in this tournament but that was the last of his four PGA Tour wins. Charl Schwartzel tied for 58th place last week but that was his first tournament since he missed the cut at the Masters. Schwartzel won the Valspar Championship in March and he could play well this week.
Bill Haas tied for 43rd place last week. Chappell also finished alone in 2nd place at the RSM Classic and the Arnold Palmer this season so he’s been close to winning but he’s still a maiden on tour.
Jason Bohn – 100 to 1 odds
Jason Bohn only has two career wins and his last win was in 2010 and he’s missed the cut in his last three PGA Tour starts. Zach Johnson – 22 to 1
At age 29, Kevin Chappell is still looking for his first PGA Tour win. Matt Kuchar – 14 to 1
T-13. Colt Knost, Tony Finau, Marc Leishman, Kevin Kisner, Patton Kizzire – 50 to 1 odds each
5. Tony Finau tied for 12th last week. He has three PGA Tour wins but his last win was in 2010.
At odds of 6 to 1, Jordan Spieth is the betting favorite this week to win the 2016 Dean & DeLuca Invitational. Toms has 13 career PGA Tour wins including a major but he’s not won a tournament since 2011.
Boo Weekley – 80 to 1 odds
Colt Knost is 30 and he’s yet to win on tour but he tied for 3rd at the Players and was 4th last week in his last two starts. Zach Johnson does have two wins in this tournament (2010, 2012).
Adam Scott finished tied for 12th at the Players two weeks ago in his last start. Marc Leishman has one career win in 188 starts. At age 32, Kevin Kisner has one career win and he missed the cut in his last two starts. Charley Hoffman – 25 to 1
6. Could he win again this year? Maybe, but who wants to bet on it?
T-19. But Jason Bohn did finish tied for 2nd in this tournament last year just one stroke off the lead.
Matt Kuchar shot -14 under last week to finish alone in 3rd place at the Byron Nelson. Then a few notable golfers with much higher odds are listed along with comments why.
Jason Dufner has a win in 2016 and he’s finished second in this tournament twice in the past (2012, 2014). Kevin Na, Louis Oosthuizen, Patrick Reed, Jim Furyk – 33 to 1 odds each
