Golf is a famous individual sport played on an extensive open-air course for all ages. The primary goal of this sport is to strike the ball inside a hole. The player who completes the objective with just a few strokes wins the game. Over the years, it gained some fans and became more famous through its significant tournaments. The sport is not new to the world of betting; many fans and betters made this a hobby by betting their favourite golfers to win some prizes.

If you’re just starting with betting and you don’t have any background concerning the sport, especially when it comes to reading golf odds, it will be hard for you to place your bet correctly. In betting, you need to know the players in the tournament to know the odds and increase your potential in winning.

Jon Rahm

The first on the list is the Spanish professional golfer Jon Rahm. He is a former World Amateur Number One and World Number One after claiming his first Major Championship during the U.S Open 2021. Also, Jon is the first two-time award winner of the Ben Hogan Award 2015-2016, Jack Nicklaus Award 2016, and a four-time NCAA All-American.

He is currently the leading golfer in the world golf ranking with total points of 384.88 under 47 events. Another thing to note in his portfolio is his 6 PGA Tour Victories and International Victories, showing his high skill level in the sport. Betting for Jon for your first bet can give you a good chance of winning. With his excellent performance during the last Major, betting for him is an advantage as he can bring that again this season.

Collin Morikawa

Next on the list is an American professional golfer that plays on PGA Tour and European tour and is currently second in the world golf rankings with total points of 404.79 under 52 events. With his talent and skills, he has shown the world what he can do in the sport where he has 5 PGA Tour victories and 1 International victory in his career.

Morikawa also won his first major championship during his debut and second start in the major. Another notable performance in his career where he defeated Justin Thomas, a former world number one in the sport. With that performance, Collin has established his name to be one of the best golfers in the world. He continues to perform consistently, which is one of the factors that you will be looking at when picking your golfer to bet.

Viktor Hovland

Viktor is the first Norwegian player to win the PGA Tour during the Puerto Rico Open in 2020. He also became the first Norwegian player to win a European Tour during the BMW International Open in 2021. He holds the third spot in the world golf ranking with 394.44 points in 52 events.

Viktor has won 3 PGA Tour victories and 2 National Victories. His notable highlights for this year are his third consecutive top-10 on the PGA Tour and winning the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba, defending his title in the tournament history. With Viktor’s improvement in generating power and touch from last year, results have shown his incredible skill for the sport, making it a viable choice for betting.

Patrick Cantlay

For the fourth list, he is an American professional golfer who had massive success during his amateur career. He became number one in the ranking for just 55 weeks. He is also the fourth player in the world golf ranking. Patrick has won 6 PGA Tour victories in his career and notable performance in the FedEx Championship in 2021, where he defeated Jon Rahm.

Patrick has faced different opponents in the sport where he slowly developed and now is known for his mental game. It is seen during his championship runs, where he delivers his 100% concentration to win the game. With this mentality, he is one of the best golfers in the world and can bring you high potential in winning bets.

Scottie Shelfer

The last on the list is the American professional golfer, who won 2 PGA victories and is now the number five in world golf with 361.98 points in 52 matches. During the WM Phoenix Open, he displayed his skills when he defeated Patrick Cantlay, earning his first PGA victory with a birdie.

With his stats, he is playing consistently and has his own game that can defeat even the greats in the rankings. Scottie will be a good choice for betting as the display of his performance currently is on a hot streak which can lead you to good odds.

Final thoughts

Each of these golfers is great, and choosing the right one will be your decision. Take time to consider their performances and statistics to choose the best pick for your bet.
