  • BookMaker.eu If you blinked you missed the PGA Tour’s offseason. That’s right, last season ended just a few weeks back and the fellas are ready to peg it up again to kick off the new 2019-20 Tour campaign. There is a different look this time around with A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier making its debut as the season opener. Due to changes in the Tour schedule last season, the event wasn’t played. The field returns to The Old White TPC layout in Sulphur Springs, W.V., for the first time since Kevin Na emerged victorious in July, 2018. This is also the first event with a new cut-line rule of top-65 with no ties, which could impact the matchups. And speaking of matchups, here is a list of tournament matchup odds from top online sportsbooks. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu So much for the offseason. The 2019-20 PGA Tour season has a different look with A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier making its debut as the season opener. Typically played in July, the move will likely create a different atmosphere at The Old White TPC layout in Sulphur Springs, W.V. However, the object of the game remains the same, and the 156-player field is faced with a new cut-line rule this season, which is now the top 65 and no ties. Bryson DeChambeau is the highest ranked player from la... 

  • BookMaker.eu It’s down to the top 30 golfers in the FedExCup Playoff standings competing for the $15 million prize at the PGA Tour’s season-ending TOUR Championship at historic East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta. The points slate is wiped clean for this event, however leader Justin Thomas is given a head start on the field. J.T. is 10-under with a 2-shot lead over No. 2 Patrick Cantlay even before reaching the first tee box on Thursday. The top golfers on Tour colliding also makes for intriguing matchups with odds on those available at top online sportsbooks. For betting purposes, though, the handicap won’t carry over to the matchups. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour wraps up its season with the top 30 golfers competing for the $15 million FedExCup at the TOUR Championship. Racking up points over the course of the year comes in handy this week with leader Justin Thomas getting a head start over the field. And that’s why J.T. is the favorite at online sportsbooks. Thomas starts the tournament at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta at -10 while No. 2 Patrick Cantlay opens at -8. There is a gradual decline to the bottom five, who all start at even-par. Making up 10-strokes is a mammoth chore which is why those five players all have long odds to win the tournament. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The field has been whittled down to the top 70 in the PGA Tour’s points standings and those players assemble this week at Medinah Country Club just outside of Chicago for the BMW Championship. The second-leg of the FedExCup Playoffs has plenty at stake with the top 30 earning a spot in next week’s final Tour event and the handsome payout that goes along with winning. First things first, though. A number of players are currently outside the top 30 and need a strong finish this week to advance. Br... 

  • BookMaker.eu The FedExCup Playoffs continue this week with the top-70 golfers in the point standings making their way to Medinah Country Club for the BMW Championship. It’s the last chance for a number of players to make the top-30 for the final PGA Tour event of the season, the Tour Championship at East Lake. The usual suspects opened at the top of the odds board at online sportsbooks. Brooks Koepka is the betting favorite with Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm the only players at better than 10/1 odds. There is no cut this week so every player in the field will have four rounds to make a statement. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The FedExCup Playoffs get underway this week in Jersey City with The Northern Trust hosting the top 125 players in the points standings. A change to the 2019 schedule has just three playoff events instead of four, and The Northern Trust is the only one with a cut so you can expect to see some competitive action. Only the top 70 players are eligible to compete next week and that means 55 players will see their quest for the end-of-season bonus money come to an end at The Northern Trust. Brooks Ko... 

  • BookMaker.eu Another change to the PGA Tour season has the FedExCup Playoffs at only three events instead of four. And the race to the prize begins this week at The Northern Trust, taking place at the Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, New Jersey. The field is maxed at 125 and this is the only playoff tournament with a cut, so things will get intense. Tiger Woods is scheduled to compete, his first event since missing the cut at The Open. Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy have been the most consistent players on Tour all season and they opened atop the odds board at online sportsbooks. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The final event for players to accrue points ahead of the FedExCup Playoffs takes place this week at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, N.C. Fresh off the final major and WGC of the season one would expect a watered down field to tee it up at Sedgefield Country Club. While there is a drop in the quality of the field, it’s not as drastic as it’s been in years past. There are 13 players within 50 points of the playoff cutoff line, which will make for some interesting moments. And the matchups for this week’s event are intriguing. Odds for those head-to-head battles are available at top golf sportsbooks. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Valuable FedEx Cup points are on the line when the PGA Tour gears up for the final event of the regular season at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, N.C. The top 125 players in the standings will advance to the playoffs and several golfers on the bubble will attempt to amass the required number of points as 13 players are within 50 points of the cutoff line. That will make for some tense moments on the 7,127-yard, par-70 Sedgefield Country Club layout. Webb Simpson opened as the betting fav... 

  • BookMaker.eu A week after the season’s final major, the PGA Tour plays another major event with the fourth installment of the World Golf Championships taking place this week in Memphis, Tenn. As one of the top non-major events, the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational has attracted a stellar field as the tournament gets a status upgrade. TPC Southwind hosted the St. Jude Classic for 30 years and will continue that relationship this week with a number of tantalizing matchups on tap. Open Championship winner Shane ... 

  • BookMaker.eu For those who didn’t get invited to the WGC, the PGA Tour is holding an alternate event again this week with the Barracuda Championship taking place in Reno, Nev. We’re likely to see a field similar to what we had last week at the Barbasol Championship; a number of youngsters looking to make their mark along with veteran players all chasing valuable FedEx Cup points. The field lacks big names, but the tournament at Montreux Golf and Country Club won’t be short of matchup wagering options. Check ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Fresh off the season’s final major, the PGA Tour heads to Memphis this week for the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational. It’s rare to see a major and WGC tournament on back-to-back weeks, but the new schedule plays out that way. The St. Jude also gets a step up in status as the final WGC of the season. While the WGC will be played on a different course, TPC Southwind is no stranger to the Tour having hosted the St. Jude Classic from 1989 to last year, so there should be a comfort level for the stack... 

  • BookMaker.eu It’s another two tournament week on the PGA Tour with the Barracuda Championship in Reno, Nevada, serving as an alternate event to the WGC. That means a less than sparkling field, considering the event also comes a week after the final major of the season. A relatively small field of around 130 golfers will attempt to tame the Montreux Golf and Country Club in the Tour’s only event featuring the Modified Stableford scoring system, which credits points based on how players perform at each hole. C... 

  • BookMaker.eu Golf’s major championships are like the Super Bowl for sports bettors. And with The Open Championship the final major of the season, this is the last chance to make some additional coin on a little side action. The prop bets are plentiful for the 148th Open and BookMaker.eu has everything you need. Tiger Woods is the most polarizing figure in sports and he’ll peg it up this week after a month-long hiatus. Woods could play just the four majors every year and he’d still draw attention from everyon... 

  • BookMaker.eu Serving as an alternate event to The Open, the The Barbasol Championship will attract a field of younger players and savvy veterans fighting for status on the PGA Tour. Now in its fifth season playing alongside one of the Tour’s majors, the field will lack star power, but it certainly won’t be at a loss for drama if last year’s edition is any indication. Troy Merritt broke free from the pack in the final round to win by a stroke over three golfers. Merritt is back to defend his title at the Keen... 

  • BookMaker.eu You want matchups, the PGA Tour has matchups. With the world’s greatest golfers assembled in Northern Ireland this week for the 148th Open Championship, there is a bevy of matchup choices as the field goes for the fourth major title of the year and possession of the Claret Jug. Tiger Woods pegs it up for the first time since the U.S. Open and has plus odds in a number of his matchups. There is money to be made should the Big Cat rise to the occasion, like he tends to do in majors. This is a home... 

  • BookMaker.eu The final major of the PGA Tour season is a dandy with the 148th playing of The Open Championship. We can also call it the British Open or just The Open, but it all means the same to the field of golfers assembling in Northern Ireland. Royal Portrush serves as host for the first time since 1951 and offers the field a typical links-style layout. All the big boys will be out battling for the Claret Jug with Rory McIlroy the betting favorite on the opening line at offshore sportsbooks. Major whiz B... 

  • BookMaker.eu With nearly all of the top players on the PGA Tour competing in The Open Championship, those who didn’t qualify for the fourth major will have a chance to pick up some scraps at the alternate Barbasol Championship, taking place this week at the Keene Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville, Kentucky. There are no top-50 players competing, but there is a good mix of talented young players and experienced veterans looking to pick up valuable FedEx Cup points. Troy Merritt is back to defend his title, however, there is no clear-cut favorite in the watered down field. Russell Henley opened at the top of the odds list at online sportsbooks, because someone had to. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The last PGA Tour stop before the final major of the season takes place this week in the Quad Cities area with the playing of the John Deere Classic at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois. Not an ideal event to prepare for the Open Championship, most of the Tour’s big names are absent from the JDC. That doesn’t mean the play will be below par. The field is headlined by the last two Tour winners in Matthew Wolff and Nate Lashley, and will also feature a number of up-and-comers who are the future of... 

  • BookMaker.eu The swing through the Midwest comes to an end for the PGA Tour with this week’s playing of the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois. Having the unenviable slot of being just ahead of the Open Championship, and thousands of miles away, the field is less than attractive for this year’s event. There may be a lack of big names but there’s no mistaking the talent level. A number of the Tour’s rising stars will get the chance to show off and as odds at online sportsbooks suggest, the field is wide o... 

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour’s swing through the Midwest continues this week with the inaugural playing of the 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minnesota. The Tour hasn’t had a regular stop in Minnesota since 1969 and players will be greeted by an upgraded course. Headlining the field is world No. 1 Brooks Koepka, who is also the betting favorite at online sportsbooks. Eleven of the top 30 golfers in the latest FedEx Cup standings make for some interesting matchups, and odds for those are available at Book... 

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour is hitting some overlooked spots with a trip this week to Minnesota for the inaugural 3M Open, which will be held at the TPC Twin Cities in Blaine. Last week the Tour stopped in Michigan for the first time in a decade and it’s been a half-century since Minnesotans enjoyed a regular PGA Tour visit. The maiden 3M Open has attracted a strong field with world No. 1 Brooks Koepka the betting favorite at online sportsbooks. The field also includes 11 of the top 30 in the latest FedEx Cup ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Not bad for a first timer. Placed between the last two majors of the season, the Rocket Mortgage Classic has attracted a strong field for its maiden event as the PGA Tour returns to Michigan for the first time in 10 years. The field will convene this week at the Detroit Golf Club with Gary Woodland playing for the first time as a major champion. Fresh off his four-shot win last week, Chez Reavie looks to go back-to-back. World No. 2 Dustin Johnson is the betting favorite with a number of interes... 

  • BookMaker.eu It’s been a decade since the PGA Tour last stopped in Michigan. That drought ends this week with the inaugural Rocket Mortgage Classic taking place at the Detroit Golf Club. The past two winners on Tour are in attendance and both are at the top of the odds board at online sportsbooks. Gary Woodland plays his first event as a major champion and Chez Reavie is coming off his four-shot win at the Travelers Championship. We keep seeing Dustin Johnson as a favorite in events he plays, and there he is...
