Butterfield Bermuda Championship Predictions

Butterfield Bermuda Championship Intro

This will be the fifth edition of the Butterfield Bermuda Championship and, in its short history, the list of winners have been very typical of Fall events.

This is a time of year, after all, when the stars are mostly resting and recuperating which means an opportunity for others to shine.

The first winner of the event was Brendon Todd - a journeyman who was reviving his career.

The second winner was Brian Gay - a veteran having a last few days in the sun.

The third winner was Lucas Herbert - a young stud landing his first win on the PGA Tour.

And last year Seamus Power was another journeyman riding the wave of the best form of his career.

Who will take the honors this week? Let’s find out.

Port Royal GC Winners

YearChampion and Winning Score
2019Brendon Todd (U.S.A.) -24
2020Brian Gay (U.S.A.) -15
2021Lucas Herbert (Australia) -15
2022 Seamus Power (Ireland) -19

Port Royal Course Notes

  • The course is a par 71 that plays to 6,828 yards

  • It was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr.

  • The layout features significant elevation changes

  • Changeable and blustery tradewinds are the key defense of the course

  • There have been six tropical storms/hurricanes in the last three months

  • All four past champions ranked top six for Putts per Round for the week

Favorites to win the Butterfield Bermuda Championship

Adam Scott (+1600) at BetMGM

The 43-year-old Aussie is a former Masters champion and 14-time winner on the PGA Tour but he needs a strong result to guarantee his involvement in 2024’s biggest tournaments. He’s finished seventh twice in his last five starts but he has only one top-five in 2023 and is favorite on class not form. And while he can play in blustery wind, his putter is rarely hot.

Brendon Todd (+1800) at BetMGM

The American was not only the first winner of this event, but it was also a first victory for him in two starts, a rare enough occurrence for any golfer let alone one who, like him, had been regularly missing cuts for three years. But this is the sort of test that suits him: he’s accurate from the tee, copes with wind, and putts well. He’s also finished in the top seven in three of his last six starts.

Akshay Bhatia (+2000) at BetMGM

The young American landed a first PGA Tour win in the summer and this is exactly the kind of test he loves. He was a winner in the Bahamas on the Korn Ferry Tour, added a pair of top sevens in the same islands a year later, was second in this year’s Puerto Rico Open, and 10th last week in the WWT Championship by the sea in Mexico.

Bhatia Can Make a Fast Start

We’ve already established that Akshay Bhatia likes playing in the conditions he’ll face this week and he signed off last Sunday with a superb 64.

That dropped a nice hint that he’s in good shape and he has plenty of form at going low in the first round by the ocean.

He’s been fifth after 18 holes at El Camaleon, second at Pebble Beach, fourth during that win in the Bahamas, was twice second there a year later, and second again in Puerto Rico.

Take him in the first round market at +3300 each way with BetMGM Sportsbook paying five places.

Pendrith Taylor Made for Port Royal

Early in his rookie season on the PGA Tour the Canadian Taylor Pendrith thrashed a second-round 61 at Port Royal to grab the halfway lead and a third-round 65 left him three shots clear with 18 holes to play.

He closed with a 76 to finish fifth but the week proved that he can go low round this layout and he did say of that performance: “I drive it well here and my putter was hot.”

In recent weeks he’s been carding great scores again.

There were two 65s in Las Vegas when he was third in the Shriners Children’s Open and he closed 66-67-65 last week in Mexico to finish 15th having opened the week with a 72 to sit 101st.

Most importantly his driving has been working well and last week his putter was hot again.

This is a great opportunity for him and the FanDuel Sportsbook is offering +2200 each way.

Herbert Likes to Repeat

When the Aussie Lucas Herbert likes a course he takes advantage.

He’s finished ninth and third at Lake Karrinyup and twice finished fourth at The Renaissance Club.

He’s also played well when returning to the scene of his previous wins.

At Emirates, he was seventh before his win and third afterwards while at Mount Juliet he was ninth after lifting the trophy.

He didn’t get the chance to defend this trophy last year but he can put up a good fight this week.

Moreover, that win provided more evidence that a course demanding a wind-proof long game plus a hot putter is his ideal test.

Consider his top 10s at 13th Beach, Verdura, Dom Pedro, Bay Hill, Royal Greens, and in the Dunhill Links.

Take bet365’s offer of +260 that he adds another top 10 this week.
