PGA Tour Picks – Odds to Win 2019 Barbasol Championship

Odds to Win 2019 Barbasol Championship

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.

Odds Analysis

Russell Henley +2200

How often is the favorite at a PGA Tour event offered at such lengthy odds? And how often is a player the favorite after missing the cut in four of his last five starts? That shows us just how tightly packed the field is. Henley ended a string of four MCs by carding a final round 10-under 61 to earn a runner-up finish at last week’s John Deere Classic. That makes him the hottest player in the field. Henley is worth a play with such long odds.

Beau Hossler +2800

It’s been an underwhelming season for Hossler as he searches for his first PGA Tour victory. The good news is that he’s played the weekend seven times in his last nine starts. The bad news is that he hasn’t finished higher than T26 in any of those events. Wait, there’s more good news. That best finish took place last week, bettering his previous best of T34 during that run the week prior. This is a field Hossler should feel comfortable competing against.

Jhonattan Vegas +2500

Vegas showed a lot of promise earlier in the year when he collected six top-30s in a seven start stretch that included a T3 at THE PLAYERS Championship and a T10 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Since a T8 at the Wells Fargo, Vegas has three MCs in five starts with both finishes outside the top-30. Can he find the form from a few months ago? It looked promising last week until a 76 meltdown on Saturday moved him from the lead to T37. He finished the week with a 69 for a nice rebound and should carry over some momentum from that.

Patrick Rodgers +5000

A bit of an unknown since he hasn’t played since March, Rodgers is an intriguing pick with a hefty payday. He showed promise earlier in the year with a solo second at the RSM Classic thanks to final rounds of 61 and 62. He also had a pair of top-15 showings before going on the shelf with an unspecified injury. The lengthy layoff has to be a concern, but this is a layout that shouldn’t offer him much resistance.

Brian Gay +8000

Solid yet unspectacular has defined Gay since he turned pro in 1994. He’s played a lot of golf this season going 19 of 25 with six top-25s, including a podium finish at the Zurich Classic. Three of his five MCs have come in the last two months, which may serve him well with some additional weekend rest. And it’s always worth a shot to look down the odds board in a field of this caliber. Despite his recent form, Gay is one of the better players in the field.

Course: Keene Trace Gold Club – 7,328 yards, Par 72

With the exception of the closing hole on each of the nines, the course is fairly straightforward with few obstacles. Merritt set a tournament record last year by navigating the layout to a 23-under with three golfers finishing one swing back. That shows you how scoreable the track is. The par-3 18th hole requires some carry over water to wide green. It’s a tough tee shot and it’s one of just two par-3 finishes on Tour. Water also surrounds the ninth hole, but the two didn’t pose much of a threat last year. Keene Trace is in its second year as a Tour stop, and it’s consistently been among the top-five in the state’s course rankings.
