- Nine out of the world’s top ten golfers will be competing in the Travelers Championship on Thursday June 25-28
- Rory Mcllroy is on par with Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas who are all priced the same as of June 23
- RBC Heritage winner Webb Simpson is a fair bet, although not tipped to break into the first spot in the upcoming event.
The world’s golf elite is readying up to take on the Travelers Championship, the next instalment in the PGA Tour, held at TPC River Highlands. With just Adam Scott skipping the event from the current top ten rank list, we are bound to see some pretty intense action.
Webb Simpson, fresh out of his most recent victory at the RBC Heritage, will naturally participate, aiming at another title. Simpson just won his seventh career victory in the PGA circuit, making for an exciting event indeed. Admittedly, Simpson had the added benefit of not having to face some of the top golf dogs, but his victory is impressive all the same.
Let’s take a quick look at the upcoming Travelers Championship odds first and then run you through the rest of the details.

McIlroy Suffers a Bad Beat, His Odds Remain Strong
With Rory McIlroy has not been demonstrating his best performance these days, and especially with golfing taking a three-month hiatus, the odds still seem to back him. His stats this year is great as well.
He has 8 events, made Top 10 six times and won once. His earnings amount to $3,899,801 as of now, although he took a bad beating in the Charles Schwab Challenge and RBC Heritage where he finished 32nd and 41st respectively.
Bryson DeChambeau up in the Sportsbooks’ Favors
Known for his “unleash the kraken” catchphrase, DeChambeau seems well-tipped to return to the Travelers Championship and vie for the top spot. He finished 8th in the RBC Heritage and his best showing so far this year has been the WGC-Mexico Championship when he placed second behind Patrick Reed.
Who Has Won the Event So Far?
Sometimes, having a look back in history may tip you off as to who stands to win next. The winners of the past editions are definitely not among the top ten tipped players this time around, though. Many are actually missing from the list altogether.
- 2019 – Chez Reavie
- 2018 – Bubba Watson
- 2017 – Jordan Spieth
- 2016 – Russel Knox
- 2015 – Bubba Watson
Bubba Watson is priced at (+2900) this year, giving some hopes that the player may break into the top spot again. He does have 11 events this year but only 3 top finishes, which has shown lack of consistency.
Jason Day seems even farther down in the pricing with odds showing him at (+6500). Both Watson and Day remain worthy picks in the upcoming event, but they may take a few events before they start breaking into the top spots with some consistency again. In the meantime, their pricing definitely offers great value for underdog bettors.
