2021 Puntacana Championship Expert Analysis – PGA Betting

Written by on March 24, 2021

While the world’s very best golfers will be in Austin, Texas for this week’s WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Championship, you’re going to have a great chance to cash in with a potentially winning wager when the 2021 Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship gets underway on Thursday, March 25, live from the Dominican Republic.

The field at this annual event features the players that didn’t qualify for the aforementioned WGC-Dell Technologies event. This will be the fourth year on the PGA Tour for this event with the two previous years being held on the Korn Ferry Tour. A year ago, Hudson Swafford won it all. This spring event was held in September as the global COVID-19 pandemic pushed back its normal start date. With that being said, let’s take a closer look at the top 3 favorites to win the Puntacana Championship so you can bet against their Golf odds.

Odds To Win 2021 Puntacana Championship

Top 3 Favorites

  • 3. Emiliano Grillo

Grillo is 151st in the official golf world rankings, but gets my vote as the No. 3 pick to win this event. In 16 events this season, the 28-year-old Argentinian has recorded six Top-25 finishes and one Top-10 finish. While Grillo missed the cut in his last event at The Player’s Championship, he did finish T21 in the Arnold Palmer Invitational just prior to that and T11 in the Puerto Rico Open just before that. Grillio ranks a phenomenal third in greens-in-regulation (73.21%), 46th in birdie average (4.14) and 31st in scoring average (70.3).

  • 2. Nate Lashley

75th in the FedEx standings, 38-year-old Nick Lashley has recorded a pair of Top-10 finishes in 15 events this season. While that figure isn’t very encouraging, Lashley did manage to win this event in 2017 when it was still on the Korn Ferry Tour. Lashley finished an encouraging fifth at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in mid-February while finishing 36th in last week’s Honda Classic. I’m going to put Lashley in the mix simply because he’s had some past success in this tournament and should be quite motivated to record his third Top-20 finish in his last six events.

  • 1. Charley Hoffman

The 44-year-old Californian is an uninspiring 111th in the official golf world rankings, but I like his chances to win this event. In 16 events this season, Hoffman has recorded seven Top-25 finishes and three Top-10 finishes. After a seriously slow start, the veteran has heated up nicely by recording three Top-20 finishes over his last four tournaments, including an encouraging T10 finish in the Arnold Palmer Invitational three weeks ago and a T17 finish at The Player’s Championship two weeks ago. Hoffman is 30th in greens-in-regulation, 38th in birdie average (4.19) and 41st in scoring average (70.5). Hoffman is trending in the right direction and he’s my top pick to get the win!
