LIV Golf Singapore 2024 Predictions

LIV Golf Singapore Intro

For a second year running, last week’s LIV Adelaide was a triumph for the rebel circuit.

There were big crowds, lots of noise, and a win for the home team, the Rippers.

LIV Commissioner Greg Norman was in a feisty mood and said he “felt sorry for LIV haters”.

This week’s venture north to Singapore won’t be quite so excitable but the course is a good one and it provided high drama last year with Talor Gooch edging Sergio Garcia in extra holes.

Who will take the honors this week and join the favorites for the Masters? Let’s find out.

LIV Singapore 2023 Top 10

Position Player and Score
1st Talor Gooch (U.S.A.) -17 (after playoff)
2nd Sergio Garcia (Spain) -17
3rd Brooks Koepka (U.S.A.) -16
4th Scott Vincent (Zimbabwe) -15
5th Mito Pereira (Chile) -14
6th Jason Kokrak (U.S.A.) -12
Cameron Smith (Australia) -12
7th Charles Howell III (U.S.A.) -11
Harold Varner III (U.S.A.) -11
Joaquin Niemann (Chile) -11

The Serapong GC Course Notes

  • The course is a par 71 that plays to 7,406 yards

  • There is plenty of peril from the tee

  • There are lakes, ponds, bunkers, and narrow fairways

  • Holes 4 to 7 (known as the Dragon’s Tail) circle around and inside the lake

  • Sergio Garcia, Adam Scott, Ian Poulter, Matteo Manassero, and Matt Kuchar are course winners

  • Those names emphasize the importance of ball-striking

Favorites to Win the LIV Golf Singapore

Jon Rahm (+650) at bet365

Is it time for the Spanish superstar to start getting worried? He’s a 20-time winner on the main tours, yet he has now gone nearly 13 months since his last victory anywhere - the longest drought of a career that began in 2016. He’s 6-for-6 at landing top 10s on LIV but he’s only twice been within three shots of the first-round lead. He needs stronger bases.

Joaquin Niemann (+700) at bet365

The sizzling recent form of the Chilean down under was maintained last week when he finished third, making it three top-five finishes in his last three visits to Australia. It was also a 10th top-10 finish in his last 12 starts. He got off to a slow start in this event 12 months ago, with a 70 that left him 22nd in the field, before two rounds of 66 lifted him to eighth.

Cameron Smith (+1000) at bet365

A second-round 65 last week had Smith on the heels of the leaders but the pressure on home soil told and he slipped back to 14th. But he was instrumental in the Rippers team triumph and will be buzzing as a result. So long as the after party didn’t go on too long he’ll be primed for this week. He was never outside the top six throughout the tournament 12 months ago.

Sergio Can Tame Sentosa Again 

With the high demand on superb ball striking, often in high wind, the Serapong Course is the perfect layout for Sergio Garcia.

He made a very slow start on his course debut in 2017 yet still finished 11th.

He won the Singapore Open in 2018 and was seventh on defense in 2019.

Last year only Talor Gooch, in the best form of his life, could deny Garcia - and only then in extra holes.

In those four starts at Sentosa Garcia averages hitting over 85% of the greens in regulation with an average field rank for that category of 2.5.

At the start of this month, he lost another playoff at another course (Doral) with lots of water, and that’s a good pointer for this week.

Take the +2200 each way at bet365 which pays five places.

Koepka’s Long Game in Form

Twelve months ago we landed the place spoils when backing Brooks Koepka in this event and he can repeat that effort - and even win.

He was in good form at the time, having won LIV Orlando and contended at the Masters but his tee-to-gree game is in even better nick right now.

Nobody in the field hit more greens than he did last week in Adelaide as he finished ninth, a first top 10 since the start of the year.

He’s hungry for a fourth LIV title and this week is a good fit for him.

Back him each at +1400 with Caesars Sportsbook paying five places.

Burmester Can Ride the Wave 

Life is going well for South Africa’s Dean Burmester right now.

He won back-to-back on home soil at the end of last year and added a first LIV triumph in early April when he was the man to deny Garcia in Miami.

As noted above, that event was played on a resort course with lots of water and swirling wind - just like this week, in fact.

Burmester ranked fourth for hitting the greens that week and third last week in Adelaide.

He’s in superb form tee-to-green, much better than 12 months ago when 41st in this event.

Take him at +135 for a top 10 with bet365.
