Odds via PointsBet, as of Monday morning.
An elite field heads to Mexico this week for the 2021 World Wide Technology Championship at El Camaleon in Playa del Carmen.
Defending champion Viktor Hovland is among the 13 top-32 players in the world who will be teeing it up this week. World No. 7 Justin Thomas highlights the field and is favored in the odds released on Monday morning at PointsBet.
Following Thomas on the odds board are Brooks Koepka and Tony Finau, who is making just his second appearance this fall.
Other 2021 Ryder Cup players at Mayakoba this week are Harris English, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Sergio Garcia, Tyrrell Hatton, Shane Lowry and Scottie Scheffler. They will be joined by TOUR young guns Matthew Wolff and Will Zalatoris.
Billy Horschel will make his PGA TOUR 2022 debut at 25-1, among the five choices on the board. Horschel won the BMW PGA Championship on the European Tour in September.
Last week’s winner, Lucas Herbert, opened at 60-1. And Patrick Reed, who finished runner-up at the Bermuda Championship last week, is 30-1. After a rough stretch of injuries, illness and poor form, Reed opened around 20-1 last week in a much worse field, so he’s returning to the normal pecking order.
The most surprising name toward the top of the board if you haven’t been following golf in the fall swing is Aaron Wise, who in three events in the last month has top 10s and a 26th-place finish. He finished last year strong, with nine made cuts in 10 tries and five top-25 finishes.
Aside from THE CJ CUP three weeks ago, a no-cut event, this will be the TOUR’s best field during the 2021 fall swing.
El Camaleon Golf Club hosts this tournament every year, a par-71 course that was designed by Greg Norman. It plays just shy of 7,100 yards, which is considered relatively short in the TOUR nowadays. As has been the case over the past eight years, expect the winning score to be around 20-under.
