Golf Betting Preview for Butterfield Bermuda Championship 2022 Tournament

Overview

This golf tournament has been a part of the PGA Tour schedule since 2019 when it was added to the fall slate as an alternate event alongside the WGC-HSBC Champions. When the WGC tournament was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the global pandemic, the tournament became a full points event on the Tour slate.

Australian Lucas Herbert is the defending champion after notching his first victory here last season. The Aussie fired a four-day total of 15-under par, good enough to top Danny Lee and Patrick Reed by one shot.

The purse for the tournament is $6.5 million dollars with the winner taking home $1.17 million. In addition to the money, with the elevated status, the winner earns 500 FedEx Cup points and entry into all major events in 2023.

The Field

After watching the top players in the world last week compete in South Carolina, a weaker field is on tap this week in Bermuda, but there should still be plenty of fireworks on the island. Many of the players in this week’s field could be the future stars of the PGA Tour.

A lot of last year’s Korn Ferry Tour graduates are hoping to make a leap in the FedEx Cup rankings, and sponsor exemptions were dealt out to two-time major winner John Daly, 20-year-old Akshay Bhatia, and DP World Tour star Adrian Meronk.

Port Royal GC

Port Royal opened in 1970 under the design of architect Robert Trent Jones. The course is a par-71 this week, stretching 6,828 yards which makes it the longest in Bermuda. 

Known for its elevation changes, the course can play easy for pros or cause chaos with unpredictable wind and inclement weather. Bredon Todd won the inaugural event shooting a 24-under, while the past two champions dealt with poor conditions and ended the tournament at 15-under.

Betting Favorites

Heading into the tournament, the top three players have never won on the PGA Tour. Denny McCarthy is the betting favorite at +1400 as the 29-year-old tries to capture that first elusive victory.

Following McCarthy are a pair of successful DP World Tour players in Thomas Detry and Adrian Meronk. Both Detry and Meronk have had success across the pond and are looking to make their mark on the PGA Tour. Detry can be grabbed at +1800, while Meronk is right behind Detry at +2000.

Wrapping up the Top 5 is Seamus Power (+2500) and Mark Hubbard (+2500). Power locked up his first PGA Tour victory last year at the Barbasol Classic, shooting up the OWGR shortly after. Hubbard has already finished in the Top 30 in three of four events this fall.
