The top of the 2022 Barbasol Championship odds board is a mix of youth and experience at WynnBet.
Christopher Gotterup is one of the two players installed as a co-favorite this week, and he’s by himself atop the odds board at most other sportsbooks. Gotterup recently turned pro after being the best player in the collegiate game during the 2021-22 year. He was a first-team All-American and Jack Nicklaus Award winner as the best college golfer in the country.
Gotterup has teed it up five times on the PGA TOUR this season, registering T4-T35-T43-MC-T7 results. The T4 was last week at the John Deere Classic, and that T43 was at the U.S. Open. The 22-year-old looks like he’s going to be a fixture on the PGA TOUR for years to come.
Alongside Gotterup at 20-1 is the 43-year-old Kevin Streelman, who turned pro right after Gotterup was born. Streelman has struggled this year, missing three of his last six cuts. He is coming off a T25 at the Travelers Championship and T41 at last week’s John Deere Classic.
Just below that duo is Mark Hubbard, who has been a breakout player out of nowhere in 2022 on the PGA TOUR. The 33-year-old has made 10 of his last 12 cuts, and he registered his best result of the year (T13) at the John Deere Classic last week.
This is the first time the Barbasol will be a joint event between the DP World Tour and PGA TOUR. Most of the major names who play the majority of their golf in Europe will be at the Scottish Open this week, but it is a chance for player on the PGA TOUR to make a potential dent on the DP Tour standings.
Last year, Seamus Power won at 21-under in a six-hole playoff against J.T. Poston. Troy Merritt is now a fixture on the PGA TOUR, and he won back in 2018. Jim Herman has the tournament record with a 26-under performance in ’19, besting Kelly Kraft by one stroke.
Si Woo Kim was a runner-up back in 2016, as was Billy Horschel in ’18. There are quality players in this field who you’ll likely be betting on in years to come.
Keene Trace Golf Club will host the Barbasol for the fourth time, and it hasn’t put up much of a fight in the first three.
Keene Trace is a par-72 that was just over 7,300 yards last year. Twenty players have shot under par in the last three tournaments.
Really, whoever gets hot with the irons and putter will have a great chance this week. The fairways are wide and there isn’t much that’s very penalizing about this course.
