2021 Bermuda Championship: PGA Tour Betting Odds

The PGA Tour heads for warmer temperatures with this weekend's 2021 Bermuda Championship.

The PGA Tour visits one of its most scenic locations of the year this week, but it’s a weaker field at the Bermuda Championship. Matthew Fitzpatrick is favoured to win on the golf odds.

Because the Bermuda Championship has one of the smallest purses on the PGA Tour and there are some COVID travel restrictions getting to/and leaving from the island, pretty much every big-name Tour star is taking a pass. This was originally an alternate-field tournament opposite the big-money World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

However, that event in China was canceled last year due to COVID so the Bermuda Championship was elevated to a regular standalone event. That remains this year with the HSBC Champions called off again. The winner thus gets a Masters invitation, full FedExCup points and the usual perks.

Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton is the host track – ocean views on nearly every hole, and No. 16 is otherworldly beautiful — and is a very short 6,825 yards or so playing to par 71. The tournament debuted in 2019 and Brendon Todd won at 24-under 260. He was originally going to play this week but changed his mind with a withdrawal. Will Zalatoris also withdrew – both those guys played in the PGA Tour event in Japan over the weekend.

Conditions weren’t quite as forgiving last year when Brian Gay and Wyndham Clark each finished at 15-under 269. Gay birdied six of his final 10 holes in regulation to force the playoff and then the first in sudden death to win. Clark missed a 7-foot birdie putt on that first playoff hole to extend it.

Bermuda Championship Golf Betting Odds

England’s Matthew Fitzpatrick is the +1000 favourite as he plays here for the first time. He won two weeks ago on the European Tour at the Andalucia Masters in Spain. It’s his first PGA Tour start of the new season.

Christiaan Bedzuidenhout is +1400 with Patrick Reed +1800. Bedzuidenhout’s last two starts: 3rd at the Korn Ferry Finals (to earn his PGA Tour card) and 5th at the BMW PGA Championship on the European Tour. He plays this tournament for the first time. So does Reed. He has struggled in two Tour events this year, both in Las Vegas.

Mito Pereira is +2000 and Seamus Power +2200. Pereira won three times on the Korn Ferry Tour last year. He just barely missed out on a bronze medal at the Olympics for Chile. Ireland’s Power has been T37 and T31 in this event. Gay is a +8000 longer shot to repeat.

David Hearn was the highest Canadian finisher last year at T8, four shots out of the playoff. Michael Gligic was T11, Roger Sloan T16 and Graham DeLaet missed the cut. Adam Hadwin is +2500 this week with Taylor Pendrith +4000, Nick Taylor +7000, Hearn +8000, Gligic +11000 and Adam Svensson +11000.

Bermuda Championship Golf Predictions

Take Gay and Hearn for Top 10s (Hearn T8 in 2019 as well) but the winner at +5000 is Ryan Armour. He has been T8 here both trips. His lone PGA Tour win came at the 2018 Sanderson Farms Championship.
