Last week was rough, but I have Global Golf Betting Predictions for six total tours this week:

  • PGA Tour: Valspar Championship
  • DP World Tour: Singapore Classic
  • LPGA: Fir Hills Seri Pak Championship
  • Champions Tour: Hoag Classic
  • Sunshine Tour: Stella Artois Players Championship
  • Challenge Tour: Kolkata Challenge

PGA Tour: Valspar Championship

Best Bet: Sungjae Im +2500 (BetRivers)

Sungjae Im has been in a slump for a while, but he's shown a few signs of life in recent weeks. Notably, the ball-striking has started to return as he gained strokes at both TPC Sawgrass and Bay Hill.

Copperhead is a course that fits hit game well. He doesn't play here often but was fourth back in 2019 and made the cut in his only other start.

It's been a bit of a soft spot recently on the schedule with all the other Florida events, so this would be a good spot for Im to get back on track.

Other Bets:

  • Christiaan Bezuidenhout +6000
  • Aaron Rai +6600
  • Doug Ghim +7000
  • Andrew Putnam +8000
  • Carson Young +20000
  • Ricky Castillo +27000

DP World Tour: Singapore Classic

Best Bet: Richard Mansell +3300 (BetRivers)

The DP World Tour heads to Southeast Asia this week. Mansell comes in with some solid form from the Middle East Swing where he placed inside the top 25 in all four events he played.

The ball-striking was really strong during that time with just the putter leaving room for improvement.

He hasn't played in about a month, so there is some concern that the layoff might have hurt. However, he was sixth on this course last year when the form wasn't this good, so hopefully he finds this place to his liking again.

Other Bets:

  • Mathew Jordan +6500
  • Jesper Svensson +7000
  • Ugo Coussaud +10000
  • Gavin Green +12500
  • Sam Bairstow +15000

LPGA: Fir Hills Seri Pak Championship

Best Bet: Megan Khang +3300 (BetRivers)

The LPGA returns to Los Angeles after a few weeks in Asia.

Megan Khang caught my eye this week. She's got a solid track record on this course finishing third and 13th the past two years.

She also enters in a good form. In three starts in 2024, she doesn't have a finish worse than 12th. She was also in the top 10 in four of her final six starts, including a win in Canada at Shaughnessy. She's one of the better ball-strikers on the LPGA, which has allowed her to remain fairly consistent over the past six months, so we'll see if the putter can get going.

Other Bets:

  • Georgia Hall +6600
  • Andrea Lee +7000
  • Lucy Li +7000
  • Albane Valenzuela +9000
  • Minami Katsu +12500

Champions Tour: Hoag Classic

Best Bet: K.J. Choi +3300 (BetRivers)

K.J. Choi is my target on the Champions Tour this week. He's played really well here, finishing second and seventh. He doesn't have a high-end finish yet this year, but all four starts have been in the top 20.

We're entering an interesting spot on this tour for value in the midtier. Steve Stricker and Padraig Harrington have started slow, and Bernhard Langer is out for the year after blowing an Achilles. That could open up more opportunity for winners in this range.

Other Bets:

  • Greg Chalmers +4000

Sunshine Tour: Stella Artois Players Championship

Best Bet: Dylan Naidoo +5000 (bet365)

The Sunshine Tour is back with just a standard field this week after a few months mixing in with the DP World and Challenge Tour.

Because of the extra talent that's been here recently, the form is spotty for a lot of the local guys. I think we're getting some extra value on golfers who usually play well on their home tour but struggled a little in recent weeks with the Europeans in town.

Dylan Naidoo is my top play among those golfers. He missed two cuts on the DP World Tour but had three top 20s in four of the Challenge Tour events. This was the price we were getting a month ago in those Challenge Tour events, but now he's competing with just his fellow South Africans remaining.

Other Bets:

  • Jovan Rebula +5000
  • Jonthan Broomhead +8000
  • Danie Van Niekirk +11000
  • Yurav Premlall +16000
  • Franklin Manchest +40000

Challenge Tour: Kolkata Challenge

Best Bet: Conor Purcell +4000 (BetRivers)

The Challenge Tour remains in India for another week.

I'll go with Conor Purcell to close out here. He was 17th last week and has top-25 finishes in all three Challenge Tour starts this season.

The young Irishman has been a regular on this tour for a couple years now and has been pretty solid. He's found himself in contention on a few occasions and does own a second-place finish. He's been showing signs of being more consistent this year.

Other Bets:

  • Daniel Young +5000
  • Hayden Hopewell +6000
  • Benjamin Hebert +9000
  • Victor Pastor +15000
  • Maxence Giboudot +20000
