Golf Ball & Putter

Golf | Travelers Championship Bets


Most of the PGA stars taking part last week are immediately back in action this week at TPC River Highlands. Unsurprisingly, McIlroy is not one of them and that makes Scheffler a short favorite again following a very rare form blip.

This tournament yields super low scores, highlighted by Furyk’s 58 round in 2016 and Keegan Bradley’s -23 winning score last year – the lowest ever. The winner has typically had a seriously good week with the putter but knowing in advance who’s going to get hot is obviously tricky! We’re betting a couple of guys bringing good form and confidence with the flatstick in hand.

TOP 10 FINISH: AKSHAY BHATIA (+500, DraftKings)

Bhatia has played a lot of golf this season and maybe that’s why his results can be a little streaky, so whilst he looks at it, now is the time to bet him. Three top-14 finishes across four events began the season, proceeded by three missed cuts, whilst victory was landed after going T17-T11 in the weeks before.

The 22-year-old logged a T16 in the U.S. Open and a T22 the week before in the Memorial. In fields with the best players in the world, those are two of his better finishes this season and they’re trending in the right direction. Having won the Texas Open in April, the youngster is clearly now looking to make his mark amongst the big names.

Bhatia is also a great putter. It could be expected with the lack of experience that shots may be given up across the most testing of surfaces, but Akshay sits comfortably inside the top 25% of tour players this season for the important putting stats, including 30th in one-putt percentage, which could prove very useful this week.


Pendrith arrives at TPC River Highlands off the back of his best major finish, and perhaps unlucky on his stats not to have finished higher than T16.

It’s the last seven events which catch our eye though. Having missed the cut in six of nine events to start the season, he’s only missed the cut once in seven events since. As well as the T16 at Pinehurst, this excellent stretch has included victory in the CJ Cup (another super low scoring event) and a T10 in the Wells Fargo Championship.

Sitting 5th in the SG: Putting standings for the season, the Canadian will be hoping to make the putts count again for him this week. He’s been inside the top 15 in this ranking for each of the past five events that he’s made the cut, proving his ability with the flatstick.

Pendrith made his debut in this tournament last season, finishing one shot off the cut. He’ll have learnt a lot from the experience and is a significantly better, and more confident, player this time around.

All odds as of Tuesday June 18.
