Event Details & Records
There are two PGA Tour events to enjoy this weekend, with the other taking place in the United Kingdom, as the Scottish Open is staged on the same weekend. The Barbasol Championship hasn’t attracted the star names this weekend, which creates a very open feel to the betting. This event has been staged annually since 2015 and is played across 7,328 yards.
A total prize fund of $3.7 million is available to players competing. This is the first year that the event is co-sanctioned by the European Tour. The record score was set by Jim Herman, who won in 2019 with an aggregate score of 2019. Seamus Power won the Barbasol Championship last year following a gripping playoff against J. T. Poston.
Christopher Gotterup is the leading contender in the betting for the event this weekend. He hasn’t yet recorded a victory on the PGA Tour but has finished in the top ten on two occasions. Both of those finishes came this season, as he finished in a tie for fourth at the John Deere Classic, and a tie for seventh at the Puerto Rico Open.
Kevin Streelman is the second choice in the betting, as he looks for a third career PGA Tour victory. He has only finished in the top ten on one previous occasion this season, with that coming with his tie for seventh in the Valspar Championship. He endured a weekend to forget at the John Deere Classic last time out, as he finished down in a tie for 41st and was eleven shots off the lead.
Those looking for an interesting selection at a bigger price may be interested in Kelly Kraft at +4500. The 33-year-old finished in a tie for 24th at the John Deere Classic last weekend but was a very close second at the Barbasol Championship back in 2019.
Barbasol Championship Pick and Prediction
We will be siding with Chesson Hadley this weekend. The 35-year-old finished in a tie for tenth at the John Deere Classic last weekend, which was his second top ten finish this season. He has won one PGA Tour event to date, but a second could follow this weekend in Kentucky.
