A Look at the Underdogs: Koepka, DeChambeau, Thomas
Betting on Johnson or McIlroy is self-evident, but there is a lot of potential when you consider the trio of runner-ups who are just as capable of delivering on an impressive performance.
Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas will all be tied for one of the first places, making speculations and predictions for the upcoming The Masters all the more exciting.
All we have to go on now is their performance in the 2021 PGA Season. All three players have remained somewhat hesitant in their performance, but still delivering exceptional performance.
As of December 11, DeChambeau has managed to secure one win and one top 10 finishes so in the 2021 PGA Season. This is not too bad, especially after winning the U.S. Open. His exact stat is:
- (9/17 – 9/20) U.S. Open – 1
- (10/8 – 10/11) Shriners Hospitals for Children – 8
- (11/12 – 11/15) 2020 Masters Tournament – 34
Yes, perhaps DeChambeau didn’t do so well in this year’s edition of the event, but his performance improved dramatically in the next two events, and he’s a worthwhile future bet.
Koepka is another force in golfing to reckon with. His performance in the 2021 PGA Season has been great, although he did miss the cut in the Mayakoba Golf Classic. The next event to follow weren’t half bad:
- (10/15-10/18) The CJ Cup – 28
- (11/5 – 11/8) Vivint Houston Open – 5
- (11/12 – 11/15) 2020 Masters Tournament – 7
Thomas has been doing well, see-sawing between 2nd and 12th spot in the last five events he played as part of the 2021 PGA Season. The golfer has not been afraid to put in some mileage in, not shying away from a worthwhile challenge.
His most notable performance of late is the near-miss he had at the ZOZO Championship, finishing 2nd. So far as his other performance goes, Thomas has been able to secure the following positions:
- (9/17 – 9/20) U.S. Open – 7
- (10/15-10/18) The CJ Cup – 12
- (11/12 – 11/15) 2020 Masters Tournament – 4
- (12/3 – 12/6) Mayakoba Golf Classic – 12
Thomas has played in every event as the other underdogs and has faced most of them. His results have been consistently good and he stands to be a powerful contender for the 2021 event, and definitely, a worthwhile future bet to place your money on.
