Five Grand Golf Bets for the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open

Five Grand Golf Bets for the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open

Each week, we will spread Five Grand across five of my favorite bets of the week. With that, here are my five best bets at the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open.

Five Grand Golf Bets for the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open

2023 Farmers Insurance Open Bets

$750 – Collin Morikawa Outright 18/1

Could we actually go back to Collin after what we saw go down at Kapalua? That was brutal to watch. But I am certain Collin will rebound. He had a slow season in 2022 but is off to a great start in 2023.

Torrey Pines isn’t a perfect for him. But he can exploit it, especially if the conditions get tough. Morikawa’s greatest strengths are his precision driving and deadly accurate iron game. With the rough up heavily this week, playing out of the fairway will be a must. That will help Collin Morikawa a lot this week. Add a bet on Collin Morikawa to win the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open.

$1,000 – Xander Schauffele Outright 11/1

The perfect storm is brewing. We are in line for another Xander Schauffele win. The “back injury” looks all but healed after a great showing at the 2023 American Express. I’d say he feels alright.

Now Xander heads to his stomping grounds of San Diego and is playing a golf course that fits his game. He’s long and straight off the tee, an elite long-iron player, and putts well on poa annua surfaces. It is all coming together.

Xander is back and he is ready. I look forward to seeing him in the winner’s circle at the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open. Bet on Xander Schauffele to win the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open.

$1,000- Will Zalatoris Top 10 +200

One year ago, we saw Will Zalatoris miss two consecutive 10 foot putts that cost him his first career PGA Tour win. It seems like everyone in the Golf Gambling Community had a bet on Zalatoris to win that week. We were calling that spot for him for months. He was truly inches from cashing the ticket but in outright betting, 2nd place is just as good as last place.

It’s one year later and Zalatoris is in line for another great start at Torrey Pines. He has made his first two cuts coming off a back injury that sidelined him for a significant amount of time. In those two starts, he did hot hit the ball amazing. But it wasn’t horrible either. There are not many golf courses that set up better for him. So I will buy a finishing position here with Zalatoris. Bet him Top 10 at the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open.

Five Grand Golf Bets for the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open

$1,000 – Jon Rahm Top 5 +105

Every year, we see one of the games elite’s go on a scorched earth run where they look like the clear cut number one player in the world. Recent stand outs are Dustin Johnson two years ago, Jon Rahm after him, Scottie Scheffler last year, and Rory McIlroy this summer. It’s part of the sport and it cycles.

At this point in time, Jon Rahm is the guy again. His game is firing in every single aspect and he heads to his most successful golf course on earth. He earned his first PGA Tour win at Torrey Pines. He earned his first major win at Torrey Pines. And he earned the right to marry his current wife at Torrey Pines.

It is clear that Rahm likes Torrey Pines and when you look at the course set up and style, it completely checks out. Torrey Pines is a place that requires you to be long and straight off the tee. Jon Rahm is quite literally the best driver of the golf ball on the PGA Tour. I will not be the one fading Rahm this week and I am sure he will make us money this week. While his outright price is outrageous, a bet on a Top 5 at the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open is reasonable.

$1,250 Hayden Buckley Top 20 +300

Hayden Buckley is coming into the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open in amazing form. After a close call at the Sony Open, he’s primed for another breakout week. I tweeted out a picture of his recent ball striking numbers and they are truly astonishing.

Since the US Open, he has gained over 4 strokes ball striking SEVEN times. Those numbers rank amongst the best of the best ball strikers over that period. Although Buckley missed the cut here last year, he is a more polished and more experienced golfer at this point in his career. Look for Buckley to have another good outing this week. Bet him for a Top 20 at the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open.
