- As the best golfers in the world prepare for the upcoming Masters, members of the PGA Tour head to the Bermuda Championship, where Will Zalatoris is the betting favorite at +1100.
- Such an eclectic field leads to some tremendous betting value, with names like Doc Redman (+2200), Harold Varner III (+2200), and Luke List (+4000) near the top of the leaderboard.
SOUTHAMPTON, Bermuda – The PGA Tour goes tropical this week as the field heads to the Caribbean for the Bermuda Championship.
With the Masters Tournament just two weeks away, some of the bigger names in the game are taking this week off in order to minimize travel and risk before heading to Augusta.
While some might think that means this tournament will be lacking in action, they couldn’t be further from the truth. With such a wide-open field, the betting opportunity has never been more prevalent.
In fact, there are just two golfers on the entire betting board who come in at under +2000 odds, meaning anyone who is able to pick a winner could be rolling in it by this Sunday.
With that in mind, bettors should take a look at the full field of players and their odds provided by the major online sportsbooks.
Bermuda Championship 2020 - 10/29/20
- Will Zalatoris +1100
- Brendon Todd +1200
- Doc Redman +2200
- Harold Varner III +2200
- Denny McCarthy +2800
- Emiliano Grillo +2800
- Kristoffer Ventura +2800
- Charley Hoffman +3300
- Henrik Stenson +3300
- Justin Suh +3300
- Peter Malnati +3300
- Aaron Wise +4000
- Adam Schenk +4000
- Cameron Tringale +4000
- Henrik Norlander +4000
- Luke List +4000
- Rasmus Hojgaard +4000
- Stewart Cink +4000
The top of the leaderboard holds some unlikely names. In fact, the man with the shortest odds, Will Zalatoris, doesn’t even have his full-time PGA Tour card.
This means that truly anyone could rise to the top to compete in this week's tournament.
Golf bettors should try to find their own diamond in the rough, but these are a few of the names to watch this weekend.
Doc Redman +2500
The Doctor himself was a regular appearance on early-round leaderboards in big tournaments in 2020. While Redman never found the perfect formula to snag a big finish on Sunday, he still hits the bar better than the greater field at large.
Redman’s ball-striking should allow him to rise above the fluff found throughout this field.
Harold Varner III +2200
Back in April, the very first tournament following the coronavirus hiatus was led by Harold Varner III through the opening round. From that point on, Varner was a regular for posting great early round scores to put his name in contention.

While Varner wasn’t able to get a win when all was said and done, this is the perfect field and course for him to elevate his name back into contention.
Jhonattan Vegas +8000
Vegas Jhonny was another golfer who enjoyed some limited success over the year only to find himself coming up short in the end. However, in a field like this, getting Vegas at +8000 is almost a must-bet.
Vegas was a common victim of the cut, but performed his best in tournaments like the Puerto Rico Open in 2020, where he finished ninth. The Bermuda is a similar course in a similar climate, that could help Vegas to the top.
