AT&T Byron Nelson Championship Odds & Betting Preview

[ad_1]

With the PLAYERS Championship in the rear-view mirror, the golfing world turns its collective attention to another TPC course – the Four Seasons Resort at Las Colinas in Irving, Texas – for the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Six of the top 20 golfers in the world will be in attendance, with Dustin Johnson the +500 favorite at Bovada. Jordan Spieth (+1100), Sergio Garcia (+1200), Jason Day (+1600), Brooks Koepka (+1800), Louis Oosthuizen (+2800), Charley Hoffman (+3300), Matt Kuchar (+3300), Patrick Reed (+3300) and Russell Henley (+3300) round out the top 10.

Garcia, the 2017 Masters Tournament champion, is back to defend his title in the Lone Star State. The Spaniard became the only man to win twice at TPC Four Seasons after prevailing in a one-hole playoff with Koepka. Garcia’s spring has been one for the ages and he enters this weekend on an impressive run that also featured a hole-in-one on the famous 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass last weekend.

This year’s edition will be especially noteworthy since it’s the last time it will be played at the Four Seasons before moving to Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas next year.

Eleven of the last 17 Byron Nelson winners have done it after posting all four rounds in the 60s, so a strong start is crucial for success here. The event is especially important because of its connection to the U.S. Open, which gets underway in mid-June. At the conclusion of the Byron Nelson, all players inside the top 60 of the world rankings will be guaranteed an invitation to Erin Hills.

Despite being on the short end of PGA Tour courses at just 7,166 yards, TPC Four Seasons is surprisingly long at times. The majority of its par 4s will give players nightmares, including No. 3 – the most difficult hole on the course at 528 yards. There were twice as many bogeys/double/others than birdies there in 2016.

Take a look at the odds list. Which players do you have your eye on?
