  • BookMaker.eu The swing through Asia is complete and the PGA Tour returns after a week layoff and to a more normal format with 132 golfers and a cut line waiting at the Mayakoba Golf Classic, contested this week at the El Camaleon Golf Club in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. This tournament made history when it debuted in 2007 becoming the first to be played outside the U.S. or Canada, and it’s grown in status and prestige over the previous 12 editions. Youngster Viktor Hovland is the betting favorite at online spo... 

  • BookMaker.eu Following an off week the PGA Tour is back in action south of the border in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, for the Mayakoba Golf Classic. After several limited field, no-cut events in Asia the Tour returns to a sense of normalcy with 132 golfers ready to peg it up at El Camaleon Golf Club. Matt Kuchar returns to defend his title and looks to avoid any controversy this week. And you can bet he’ll have his own caddy this time around. Kuchar opened as the betting favorite at offshore sportsbooks with Pr... 

  • BookMaker.eu The last World Golf Championship event of the calendar year and the first of the new season takes place this week in China with the WGC HSBC Champions teeing off at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai. With the PGA Tour finishing up its swing through Asia a number of high-profile players are scheduled to play. And besides, it’s a WGC event, so that also brings them out. We won’t see Tiger Woods after his historic triumph last week at the ZOZO Championship, though. The limited field of 78 golfers will all play 72 holes making for some interesting matchup selections. Be sure to visit BookMaker.eu for a complete list of matchup betting odds when you’re ready to place a wager. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour concludes its three-tournament swing through Asia this week with the 15th playing of the WGC HSBC Champions at Shenshan International Golf Club in China. This year also marks the 11th time the event will be contested as part of the WGC calendar. With the Tour already in Asia a number of top-ranked golfers will participate, including defending champion Xander Schaufele and the man he defeated in a playoff last year Tony Finau. OWGR No. 2 Rory McIlroy tops the 78-player, no-cut field ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Bermuda Championship will make its debut on the PGA Tour this week as an alternate-field event to the WGC HSBC Champions, and it will take place at Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton. Playing alongside a WGC event we don’t have many big-name players in the field, which is a good thing for the golfers and for those wagering on the tournament. Houston Open winner Lanto Griffin opened as the betting favorite at offshore sportsbooks with odds of +1400. That alone tells us that oddsmakers are ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Asian swing of the PGA Tour continues this week with a stop in Japan for the inaugural ZOZO Championship. A world-class field of players will tee it up at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club in Chiba. FedExCup champion Rory McIlroy headlines the field and is joined at the top of the individual odds board at offshore sportsbooks by last week’s titlist Justin Thomas. Creating a buzz whenever he hits the links, Tiger Woods is set to make his season debut and local star Hideki Matsuyama is incl... 

  • BookMaker.eu There’s nothing like the inaugural ZOZO Championship to bring out the best golfers. And that’s exactly what we have this week when the PGA Tour remains in Asia. The star-studded field that includes FedExCup Champion Rory McIlroy, offshore sportsbook betting favorite Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and local star Hideki Matsuyama among others will tee it up at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club. Once again we have a limited field capped at 78 golfers and we don’t have to worry about cuts again thi... 

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour hits the road to Jeju Island in South Korea for this week’s CJ Cup at Nine Bridges. It’s the first event outside the U.S. since the new season started and it will be the first of three straight tournaments in Asia. The third edition of this spectacle features the past two winners and a limited field of 78 golfers with no cuts, so everybody plays thru the weekend. Defending champion Brooks Koepka and first-year winner Justin Thomas hold down the top spots on the odds board and the fi... 

  • BookMaker.eu After a blistering start to the fall season stateside, the PGA Tour heads to Korea this week for the third playing of The CJ Cup at Nine Bridges, the first of three straight events in Asia. The previous two winners will be teeing it up at The Club at Nine Bridges with both sitting atop the odds board. First-year winner Justin Thomas is the betting favorite at top offshore sportsbooks with defending champion Brooks Koepka close behind in the limited field of 78 players. The homeland will be well ... 

  • BookMaker.eu A new slot on the fall schedule has caused a problem for the Houston Open, which gets underway this week at the Golf Club of Houston Tournament Course. Coming off an 18-month hiatus and no longer the lead-in tournament to The Masters, the talent level has faded with only two players ranked among the OWGR top-50 scheduled to compete. Henrik Stenson, the top ranked player at No. 37 and the headliner, is the betting favorite. The betting odds suggest a wide-open field that will make for crazy times... 

  • BookMaker.eu Some fall events on the PGA Tour have attracted a strong field of players. Unfortunately, the Houston Open isn’t one of them. No longer leading up to The Masters on the Tour schedule this event has seen a significant drop in the talent level. That doesn’t mean it lacks for wagering opportunities. Quite the contrary. There are a number of players offering a nice payday if they can come through with a victory. Henrik Stenson is the most recognizable name in the field to golf fans and he’s the bett... 

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour moves from California wine country to the Nevada desert for this week’s Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. The new season is already in its fourth week and we’re starting to see some of the players who took additional time off at the conclusion of last season pull the sticks out of hibernation. Brooks Koepka is slated to make his season debut returning to Las Vegas for the first time in a few years, and he’s the betting favorite at offshore sportsbooks. TPC Summerlin hosts a fiel... 

  • BookMaker.eu The new schedule setup on the PGA Tour appears to be working with the fall events getting a talent boost. That’s the case this week with a number of big names set to tee it up in Las Vegas at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Brooks Koepka will dust off the sticks for his season debut and he’s the betting favorite at top offshore sportsbooks in a field that also includes defending champion Bryson DeChambeau, Patrick Cantlay, Tony Finau and Webb Simpson, and a handful of young studs. Visi... 

  • BookMaker.eu No longer the event that kicks off the new PGA Tour season, this year’s edition of the Safeway Open moved up on the calendar and back in the rotation. As a result we have the strongest field ever with five golfers ranked among the 20 best in the world set to tee it up this week at Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, Calif. Justin Thomas, the field’s highest ranked player at No. 6 in the OWGR, is the betting favorite and he’s featured in a number of tournament matchups. Phil Mickelson will make his... 

  • BookMaker.eu Northern California wine country is the sight of this week’s stop on the PGA Tour when the gang heads to Napa for the Safeway Open. This event had been the season-opener in previous years, but its new spot in the rotation brings arguably the strongest field ever. Five of the top-20 in the OWGR are scheduled to peg it up at Silverado Resort and Spa this week with No. 6 Justin Thomas the highest ranked and the betting favorite at top offshore sportsbooks. After struggling through the end of last s... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Sanderson Farms Championship no longer has to contend with another PGA Tour event taking place at the same time, getting a boost to stand-alone status this year. Instead, it goes against one of the bigger European Tour events of the season, greatly impacting the talent of the field. That doesn’t mean we won’t have quality golf at the Country Club of Jackson this week. We will have a variety of betting options with a tightly-grouped field and there are a plethora of matchup odds available at ... 

  • BookMaker.eu No longer an alternate event on the PGA Tour, the Sanderson Farms Championship stands alone on the schedule. Sadly, the field will be diminished with some bigger names chasing riches across the pond. Another thinned out field opens up the betting options, however, and young Chilean Joaquin Niemann goes for a second straight win as the betting favorite at top online sportsbooks. Niemann earned his maiden victory last week and is bloated with confidence. It’s tough to win back-to-back and the odds... 

  • 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. ...
