Golf can be very cruel. After playing four days of brilliant golf, Collin Morikawa's weekend was ruined by a three-foot putt miss in the sudden-death playoff against Daniel Berger.
However, there was pure jubilation for Daniel Berger, his Charles Schwab Challenge victory was his first on the PGA Tour. Berger's win was somewhat of a shock victory, as odds on him to win the Charles Schwab Challenge pre-event ranged from +6600 to +8000.
The best price on Oddschecker for Daniel Berger winning the first PGA event since March was +8000, which implied he had just a 1.2% of winning. $20 on twenty-seven-year-old at this price would have returned $1,620, which is $280 more than if you backed him at the worst price on Oddschecker, which was +6600. It always pays to compare odds on Oddschecker when betting on the golf.
Even though it was play-off heartache for Collin Morikawa, US bookmakers think the young American is destined for big things this season. Following the Charles Schwab Challenge, Morikawa's odds for The Masters have been cut by four US bookmakers. The twenty-three-year-old can still be backed at +6600, but is as short as +4100 with one online bookmaker.
Surprisingly, Collin Morikawa hasn't been the center of attention for bettors. In the last twenty-four hours, Bryson Dechambeau has accounted for 40% of all bet placed in The Masters betting market. Dechambeau put in a solid display on the final day of the Charles Schwab Challenge and finished T3 with Justin Rose, Jason Kokrak and Xander Schauffele.
Despite being a popular option in the market, Bryson Dechambeau can still be backed at +2900 to win The Masters which makes him the 11th favorite.
