Bermuda Championship odds, predictions, picks and best bets

By

With many of the world’s top golfers in Shanghai, China for this week’s WGC-HSBC Champions, an opposite field will compete for the inaugural Bermuda Championship. Current FedEx Cup leader Lanto Griffin highlights a field which also features five tournament winners from the past two seasons.

Port Royal Golf Course will serve as this week’s host. The course measures just 6,842 yards and will play as a par 71.

Alex Noren +1800

Noren is the clear class of the field. He enters the week ranked No. 55 in the world and ranked as high as 12th in 2018. The 37-year-old is a 10-time winner on the European Tour and could lap his competition in Bermuda if he’s in true form. Getting up for this event and the relatively small $3 million prize purse could be his biggest issue.

Roger Sloan +4500

The 32-year-old Sloan missed the cut in three of his first four events of the season, but he tied for 13th at the Safeway Open when he did make it to the weekend. He tied for second at last year’s Puerto Rico Open in a similar-caliber field as an alternate event.

Doug Ghim +6600

Ghim was named the best male college golfer in 2018. He hasn’t yet found much success on the PGA Tour and enters the week at 351st in the Official World Golf Ranking. His best PGA Tour results to date are a T-20 at last year’s Farmers Insurance Open and a T-12 at the AT&T Byron Nelson. If he’s going to break through, this week presents his best opportunity.

Johnson Wagner +8000

Wagner is a three-time PGA Tour winner dating back to 2008. Each of those prior victories came against much stiffer competition than those in attendance in Bermuda. The 39-year-old missed the cut at each of the Houston Open and the Sanderson Farms Championship, but he’s just a few months removed from a T-13 at the Wyndham Championship in a standard-quality field.

Robert Garrigus +20000

Garrigus has fallen to 913th by the OWGR after serving a suspension from the PGA Tour and spending much of last season on the Korn Ferry Tour and playing alternate events such as this. He is a PGA Tour veteran and a former champion of the 2010 Children’s Miracle Network Classic. A strong performance this week would go a long way toward gaining entry to more full-field events.

Martin Trainer +40000

Trainer is the best value in the field with a $1 bet returning a profit of $400. He won last year’s Puerto Rico Open in a field not much stronger than this week in Bermuda. The 28-year-old was a two-time winner on the Web.com Tour the year before and is value priced with such a high number. Take advantage.
