With the top players in Austin for the WGC Match Play event, the rest of the PGA TOUR gets a chance to pick up a coveted win at the Corales Puntacana Championship in the Dominican Republic.

The event comes with a two-year exemption on tour and a spot in the PGA Championship, so for guys further down the list, it represents a rare opportunity to lock up some status without having to fend off the elite players on Tour.

The Course

Corales Golf Club hosts the event for the seventh time overall, and the fifth time as a PGA TOUR-sanctioned event. The first two iterations were part of the Korn Ferry Tour schedule.

Corales is long, measuring at 7,670 yards for a par 72. Despite that length, previous champions have typically been shorter hitters who caught fire on the greens. Graeme McDowell and Brice Garnett won the two PGA events, while Nate Lashley and Dominic Bozzelli were the Korn Ferry winners. None of those four golfers are known for their length.

Hudson Swafford bucked that trend a bit. He was around the top 50 in distance off the tee, but defending champion Joel Dahmen brought it back for the shorter hitters, bring home the title to another guy who ranked outside the top 100 in length.

This has been a tough event to pick so far. On top of short hitters winning at this lengthy course, current form hasn’t mattered much. Dahmen entered with six missed cuts in seven events. Swafford had missed three of four. McDowell made three of four, but had no finishes in the top 40, while Garnett missed two of three. Dahmen was also the only one to have made the cut in a previous start prior to winning.

There are a few events that are crapshoots on this TOUR, but this one may be the biggest.

The Favorites

Jhonattan Vegas opens as the favorite at +1600. Vegas has been playing solid, making five of six cuts, and has a couple decent finishes here, finishing 18th and 26th. None of that really makes me want to bet him at this price though.

Dahmen is next in line at +2000 to defend his title. He’s actually in much better form this time, making the cut in five straight starts. He’s also never finished outside the top 15 in four appearance here dating back to the Korn Ferry Tour. Given form and history, it’s a little surprising he’s not ahead of Vegas as the most recent winner.

Sahith Theegala at +2500 and Mark Hubbard at +2800 close out this range. Theegala had a bit of a letdown after contending in Phoenix, but bounced back last week with a seventh at the Valspar. Hubbard has made five straight cuts now bouncing between the Korn Ferry and PGA Tours. Both are making their debuts at this event.

The Mid-Tier

We’ll start here with Peter Uihlein at +4500 on DraftKings. He’s been playing well on the Korn Ferry Tour, finishing second in a playoff last week, and appears to be on his way to getting his PGA TOUR card back. That should free him up on a course where he’s got a couple of top 25s in three starts.

I’ll also go with Wyndham Clark at +7000 on bet365. Clark has the length to take advantage of this course and is an above-average putter. His best result on TOUR came in one of these Caribbean events when he placed second in Bermuda. The form isn’t there at all, but that hasn’t mattered yet, so we’ll take a chance on him.

I’ll also go with Callum Tarren at +8000 on BetRivers. Tarren was fifth a few weeks back in Puerto Rico after making a couple cuts in Florida. Tarren is long off the tee, but the short game hasn’t really shown up on the PGA TOUR yet. It was what held him back at times on the Korn Ferry Tour as well, so we’ll see if he can keep up the good play this week.

The Longshots

We’ll go with Kelly Kraft at 125/1 on BetRivers. Kraft doesn’t have much form, but similar to the Dahmen model, he has three top-15 finishes on this course. So I’ll take a chance at the price that this is a comfortable spot for him, even when he’s not playing well.

Lastly, I’ll go Justin Lower at 130/1 on DraftKings. Lower has made four-straight cuts, splitting his time between the PGA and Korn Ferry Tours. He also made the cut in Bermuda this fall, finishing 17th. The irons have been in solid shape; he gained nearly nine strokes on approach at the Honda Classic.
