This weekend, the PGA Tour will make a stop in Akron Ohio for the WGC Bridgestone Invitational. This tournament is always set for the first weekend of August. The par 70 course is a great looking 7,400 yarder. The tournament this weekend is worth more than $10,000,000. 75 of the best golfers are going to be in the tournament. Let’s take a look at the Top Betting Picks for the 2017 PGA WGC Bridgestone Invitational.
Jordan Spieth +800
Jordan Spieth is the top money winner on the PGA Tour right now. He overtook Dustin Johnson with his big win the the Open Championship. Spieth is approaching $7M won on the tour this season. He has been in 17 events this season, and made the cut 13 times, and been in the Top 10- 7 times. This guy can really play, and is the most exciting player on the tour right now. At +800, not a terrible bet.
Dustin Johnson +900
The 33 year old is not going to be pleased going against Jordan Spieth after getting his top spot taken away. But, have no fear, Dustin Johnson has made over $6.5M on the tour. Johnson went out and shot a 271, for 17 under at the Canadian Open. That gave him an 8th place finish. Remember, he struggled at the Open Championship with a 77 on the final day. Johnson is listed at +900.
Brooks Koepka +1800
Koepka is now a major winner. He won the US Open, with a -16 that earned him more than $2.1M. He backed that up with a great performance at the Open Championship, where he finished 6th. This guy is always around the Top 10, with 5 Top 10 finishes. Koepka will be there in the end again.
Matt Kuchar +2800
Another guy with some pretty solid recent form. Kuchar was the runner up at the Open Championship, as he was unable to chase down Jordan Spieth. Kuchar is 39 years old, and 14th on the money list. Kuchar finished in the Top 20 in four straight events, before his 32nd place at the Canadian Open.
Charl Schwartzel +5500
A little bit of an underdog pick here, but we love this guy pretty much every week. At +5500, he is a great bet for this week. The 32 year old from South Africa ranks 40th on the money list with nearly $2M earned. Schwartzel made the cut at the Open Championship, but his final two days – scores of 71 placed him 62nd. His best recent finish was at the St. Jude Classic, where he was runner up.
We hope you enjoyed our PGA WGC Bridgestone Invitational Picks. When we put it all together, our final bet is on Dustin Johnson/ At +900, you got to like Johnson with a bit of a chip on his shoulder.
