2021 WGC-Workday Championship Odds

The Top Five Picks To Win

  • No. 5 Collin Morikawa

Sixth in the OGWR, the 24-year-old LA native has made the cut in six of eight tournaments this season while recording three Top 25 finishes and two Top 10 finishes. Morikawa recorded consecutive T7 finishes in the Sentry Tournament of Champions and Hawaii Open before finishing T43 in last week’s Genesis Invitational. The 2020 PGA Championship winner ranks 26th in birdie average (4.46) and 16th in sand save percentage (61.29%). Morikawa is simply too gifted to not challenge for the win, not to mention he’s probably due after not winning in 12 straight outings.

  • No. 4 Patrick Reed

In six events this season, the 30-year-old San Antonio native has recorded five Top 25 finishes, two Top 10 finishes and one win, that came in the Farmers Insurance Open on Jan. 31. Now ranked 10th in the official golf world rankings, the 2018 Masters champion won the 2020 WGC-Mexico Championship last year just prior to the coronavirus shutdown. In last year’s WGC-Workday Championship, Reed held off Bryson DeChambeau to get the win by one stroke. In the process, Reed got past world No. 3 Justin Thomas who held the 54-hole lead and beat out world No. 2 Jon Rahm by two strokes.

Reed ranks a stellar third in birdie average (5.05), 7th in sand save percentage (63.89%) and 18th in scoring average (70.0). Reed has been phenomenal with his putter, gaining 1.282 strokes per round on the greens this season to rank second. Reed has recorded at least one victory in four straight seasons and eight of the last nine seasons overall. The nine-time PGA Tour winner will have a decent shot to repeat, even in a field that is completely and utterly loaded.

  • No. 3 Joaquin Niemann

Currently eighth in the FedEx Cup standings and 29th in the Official Golf Word Rankings (OGWR), the 22-year-old Joaquin Niemann has made the cut in all nine events he’s played in this season while recording seven Top 25 finishes and three Top 10 finishes, including a second place finish in the Sentry Tournament of Champions last month and another T2 finish one event later in the Hawaii Open. Niemann comes into this event fresh off a T43 finish in the Genesis Open last week.

Niemann ranks ninth in driving distance (313.6), 20th in greens in regulation (71.91%), a stellar fifth in birdie average (4.86) and an even more impressive fourth in scoring average (69.5). Niemann recently took over a month off to raise more than $2.1 million in his native Chile for an ailing infant cousin. Despite his surprisingly long odds, I like Niemann to challenge for the outright win!

  • No. 2 Viktor Hovland

The 23-year-old native of Norway is currently 14th in the official golf world rankings and fourth in FedEx points. In eight outings this season, Hovland had made the cut each time while recording a fantastic six Top 25 finishes, three Top 10 finishes, one second place finish and one win in the Mayakoba Classic in December. Hovland comes into this event fresh off a T5 finish at last weekend’s Genesis Invitational and ranks a stellar eighth in scoring average (69.7), 11th in G.I.R, 17th in birdie average (4.50) and 10th in sand save percentage (62.86%). Make no mistake about it, Hovland could get the outright win over every other big name golfer in this event.

  • No. 1 Jon Rahm

Second in the OGWR, Rahm has made the cut in all eight events he’s played in this season while recording five Top 10 finishes, including a second place finish in the Zozo Championship in October. Rahm comes into this tournament fresh off a fine, T5 finish at last week’s Genesis Invitational and has recorded a stupendous, five, Top 7 finishes in his last six events. Rahm ranks 19th in driving distance (308.5), 17th in G.I.R., 25th in eagles per hole, 28th in birdie average (4.44) and seventh in scoring average (69.7). The Spaniard is on fire and is offering the best value on the board for me for the way he’s been playing recently. In four events this calendar year Rahm has two T7 finished and the aforementioned T5 finish the last time out. I see no reason why Rahm can’t get the win in this event!
