Another FedEx Cup Playoff tournament will be played this weekend as the PGA searches for a postseason champion in a year filled with immense drama and storylines.
Perhaps the biggest news this week isn’t on the course, but rather Tiger Woods flying in to town for a meeting on how the LIV Tour should be handled or Cameron Smith’s withdrawal from the event amidst rumors regarding his future.
Nonetheless, meaningful golf will be played, and that means people will be wagering on golf.
The man that people are flocking towards for the BMW Championship in Delaware is Cameron Young.
He opened at +3300, but after an influx of action, he now sits at +2200. Young accounts for the highest ticket percentage at 9.2% in addition to the highest handle percentage at 14.8%.
Needless to say, he’s the biggest liability of the week for BetMGM.
Other popular golfers include Tony Finau – one of the hottest players on tour – and Collin Morikawa.
The former has garnered 5.7% of the tickets and 5.0% of the handle while the latter has amassed 5.6% of the wagers and 7.5% of the money.
Rory McIlroy is the favorite at +1100, but he’s only tracked 4.4% of the tickets and 3.6% of the handle.
Scottie Scheffler, this year’s Masters champion, has only accounted for 4.6% of the tickets, but a big wager means he’s controlling 8.4% of the handle, and his odds have shortened from +1800 to +1600.
There is no simultaneous LIV Golf event this week, as their next tournament will not be played until the first weekend of September.
