The Golf Betting Legend of Quail ‘Sleepy’ Hollow ClubPosted by: Anthony Yaylor
Oh golf betting Lord, who art on high, who has made the blades of grass at Quail Hollow Club and the little tiny things that creep therein, bless thou, these PGA Championship sleeper picks that they may verily increase fourfold their sums of loot and enable them here in this life to purchase maybe one other pair of trousers each.
2017 PGA Championship
Jimmy Walker (+10000)
The veteran won the 2016 edition of this major tournament. But that may have been a fluke as far as people who bet on golf are concerned. Especially judging by his odds to become the first back-to-back winner since Tiger Woods in 2006 and 2007. However, Walker has done quite well for himself at the PGA Championship – whenever he hasn’t missed the cut, that is. He finished tied for 21st in 2012 and tied for 7th place in 2014. Walker has had three top 35 finishes in his last four starts. Which to him is like top 10s to Dustin Johnson.
Daniel Berger (+5050)
Berger – not to be confused with 19th century German engraver – has been hitting his stride lately. He won the FedEx St. Jude Classic, was the runner-up in the Travelers Championship, tied for 5th place at the John Deere Classic, tied for 27th in the Open Championship, and finished T17 in the WGC – Bridgestone Invitational. At +5050, Berger is a golf betting steal.
Patrick Reed (+8550)
Reed has nine top 25 finishes in his last 13 outings. That includes tying for 13th place at the US Open. The Texan golfer ranks 13th in strokes gained via putting on tour (.539). This will serve him well in the challenging terrain of the Piedmont region.
Kevin Chappell (+8050)
Chappell has had his best results in major tournaments since the early 2010s. He finished tied for 7th place in the Masters and tied for 23rd in the US Open. Though he did miss the cut in the British Open. But he has had top 25 finishes in the last five events he has been where he hasn’t missed the cut (including a T4 at the St. Jude Classic, T8 in the RBC Canadian Open, and T13 at the WGC – Bridgestone Invitational). Additionally, Chappell has made five cuts in six Tour appearances at Quail Hollow. And posted top 20 finishes in the 2014 and 2015 editions of the Wells Fargo Championship.
Zach Johnson (+7550)
Johnson has also been in full gear as of late. He tied for 5th place in the John Deere Classic, tied for 14th at the Open Championship, and was the runner-up in the Bridgestone Invitational. Johnson has thrived in Quail-like courses such as Augusta and St. Andrews. He ranks 4th in the PGA Championship power rankings.
Tony Finau (+8050)
Let us close with another golf betting long shot. Finau has placed in the top 30 in his last five events, including a T7 finish at the Greenbrier Classic and a T5 in the Canadian Open.
