The PGA TOUR heads to New Orleans to play the 2022 Zurich Classic. In a welcome change from the usual stroke play, the Zurich Classic will be a team event. On Thursday and Saturday, the teams will play best ball, and on Friday and Sunday the teams will play alternate shot.

TPC Louisiana is a par 72 measuring 7,425 yards. The course features some short par 4’s and plenty of water and bunkers making for a lot of exciting risk/reward scenarios for the competitors. Pete Dye designed the course in 2004 specifically for the Zurich Classic although the event didn’t make its debut until 2007 because of Hurricane Katrina.

The field this week is excellent, and many of the world’s top players will be teeing it up in New Orleans. Some of the notable teams include Cameron Smith and Marc Leishman, Scottie Scheffler and Ryan Palmer, Collin Morikawa and Viktor Hovland, Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele, Billy Horschel and Sam Burns, and Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel.

Bet the Zurich Classic at BetMGM and get a risk-free bet up to $1,000.

Zurich Classic Outright Bets

Sam Burns and Billy Horschel (+1300)

Burns and Horschel are the fifth team listed on most odds boards, but they have the best chance to win the event in my opinion. Therefore, despite the steep price, there is relative value in betting them this week.

The pair finished in a tie for fourth place last year and seemed like one of the teams to beat going into Sunday’s alternate shot. Horschel got his first PGA TOUR victory at TPC Louisiana in 2013 and then won the team event here in 2018 alongside Scott Piercy. 

Burns also is a great fit for TPC Louisiana. The former LSU Tiger is an outstanding putter on Bermuda grass and has won in the south before at the Country Club of Jackson.

Burns won just two starts ago at the Valspar Championship, so he is in excellent form coming into the event. He should have plenty of fan support as the only former LSU player in the field, and it helps that he’s in good form despite a missed cut at the Masters.

Tommy Fleetwood and Sergio Garcia (+1600)

Tommy Fleetwood is amidst one of the best stretches of PGA TOUR golf in his career. In his past six starts, he hasn’t finished worse than 22nd and was T10 last week at the RBC Heritage.

That strong finish at Harbour finish was fueled by a Saturday 64, which encapsulates why I am so fascinated with the Englishman in this format. It’s going to take low rounds and birdies in bunches in the Thursday and Saturday best-ball format, and Fleetwood can go low with the best of them.

Sergio Garcia has also shown some encouraging signs of late. After missing the cut three straight years at the Masters, he bounced back this year with a 23rd-place finish this year.

Perhaps more impressively, the Spaniard was third in the field in Strokes Gained: Approach (+6.8) at Augusta National. If his elite iron play is indeed back, TPC Louisiana should be a great fit for him. The course is just a bit south of where he won his last PGA TOUR event (Country Club of Jackson) and he’s also played well here in the past.

Fleetwood and Garcia had a close call in this event back in 2019, when they finished in second place to Jon Rahm and Ryan Palmer. Both have been parts of two of the best duos in recent Ryder Cup History (Fleetwood and Molinari at Le Golf National and Garcia and Rahm at Whistling Straits), which shows that they have what it takes to thrive in the best-ball and alternate-shot formats.
