PGA Tour Picks – Odds to Win RBC Canadian Open

Odds to Win RBC Canadian Open

The PGA Tour gets one last tune up before the third major of the season, and it takes place north of the border at the RBC Canadian Open. This event hasn’t been played in the month of June since 1989 and the new spot on the calendar has attracted plenty of big names ahead of the U.S. Open. After a few invitational events, the Tour returns to a full field and will be played at a new course for the first time in four years. The tournament moves from Glen Abbey to the Hamilton Golf and Country Club in the province of Ontario. Defending champion Dustin Johnson is the betting favorite at BookMaker.eu with PGA Championship titlist Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy following close behind.

Odds Analysis

Dustin Johnson +600

DJ has consistently been at the top of the odds board when he plays and we’ve stayed away from him in the past. But given his success in Canada, it’s hard to look away this week. Sure, this event is at a different venue than the one he won at last year, but it doesn’t really matter where Johnson plays he’s always a threat. Ranked No. 2 in the OWGR behind Koepka, DJ can lay claim to being the hottest golfer. He finished second to Koepka at the PGA Championship earlier this month and was a T2 in Augusta last month. Johnson has seven top 10s in 11 tournaments this year and has two runner-up finishes to go along with last year’s title.

Jim Furyk +5000

We have to throw a longshot in here because it gets boring angling the favorites all the time. With a chance to make some coin, our high value pick is Jim Furyk, who went back-to-back at the Canadian Open in 2006-07. So it’s been over a decade, but Furyk came close in 2014 falling by a swing, and he’s playing solid golf this season. His best finish this year was a T2 at THE PLAYERS Championship in March.

Scott Piercy +3300

The last player to win the Canadian Open when it was played at Hamilton, Piercy was stellar in 2012 to get the one-shot triumph over a pair of golfers. Not a fan of dull golf courses, this layout played right into his solid wedge and short iron game. “It’s a lot of position off the tee and it’s a lot of position into the green,” he said after the victory in 2012. This layout offers him plenty of chances and he proved capable back then. Recent form has been solid if not spectacular.

Brooks Koepka +650

In a tweet last week, Koepka referred to this event as Canada’s major with hopes of getting him amped up for a larger scale tournament. He’s well aware of his splits in majors and ordinary Tour events, so a little motivation can’t hurt. With three top-4 finishes in his last four starts, Koepka has taken over as the No. 1 ranked player in the world. He hasn’t teed it up since winning the PGA Championship and he’s likely looking ahead to his title defense at the U.S. Open, so it might be a good time to fade him.

Adam Hadwin +8000

A Canadian born player hasn’t won his country’s national Open since 1954 and the odds suggest it isn’t going to happen this weekend. But, if you’re looking for the home country discount Hadwin is the favorite among the 10 Canadians in the field. A former Tour winner, Hadwin is joined by countrymen Corey Conners ( +9000 ), winner at the Valero Texas Open, and Hamilton area native Mackenzie Hughes ( +12500 ).

Course: Hamilton Golf and Country Club – 6,966 yards, Par 70

One of the oldest and most respected courses in the country, Hamilton Golf and Country Club will be hosting its sixth RBC Canadian Open and first since 2012. The tree-lined layout and thick rough will require some players to club down, and we’ve seen a number of golfers take a more conservative approach. At less than 7,000 yards, the track is not long by today’s standards, but an assortment of doglegs and fairway bunkers make a number of holes challenging. Iron and wedge play will be a factor, but as always so will the use of the flat stick. The greens are sloped and small with plenty of run.
