Travelers Championship Odds

Travelers Championship Intro

Even when there was no such thing on the PGA Tour as designated events (which have huge prize funds and demand the presence of the best players) the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands was a popular stop after the U.S. Open and attracted a good field.

This year’s entry, however, is better than ever with all of the world’s top eight players in attendance.

The tournament also likes to welcome or introduce the sport’s freshest talent and in the past has welcomed Colin Morikawa, Sahith Theegala, and Patrick Cantlay.

This year look out for Stanford University’s Michael Thorbjornsen and Sweden’s Ludvig Aberg.

  • It is one of the few PGA Tour venues that plays under 7,000 yards
  • It has a bent grass/ Poa Annua combination on the greens
  • It was designed by Pete Dye (Sawgrass, Harbour Town, Kiawah Island)
  • The last eight winners ranked top eight for Strokes Gained Tee to Green
  • The last four winners here had finished top 20 in the US Open a week before

Favorites to win the 2023 Travelers Championship

Scottie Scheffler (+600)

Last week’s third place in the U.S. Open was the World No. 1’s fourth top-three finish in a row and in 14 starts this year he has never finished worse than T12th. It’s been a scintillating stretch and would have been even more spectacular if his putting could improve by as little as 20%. He’s played the tournament three times and has a best finish of 13th.

Jon Rahm (+1000)

Would the Spaniard be here if it were not for the designated status of the event? Because in three previous visits he has a record that reads: 64-25-37. It would be a good log book for most but not a golfer of his quality. A final round 65 last week did pinch a top-10 finish but his form has largely been a little underwhelming since he won the Masters.

Rory McIlroy (+1000)

The Northern Irishman’s course record is better than that of Scheffler or Rahm. But, although he has always finished top 20 in his four appearances, he is yet to register a top 10. The big question is: Can he bounce back immediately from the disappointment of not winning the U.S. Open last week? It was his third failure to push on in the final round in his last three starts.

Tom’s Time 

When the young Korean star Tom Kim started last week’s U.S. Open with a 73 to lie 107th on the first-round leaderboard it seemed his poor form of 2023 was continuing.

But he finished the week with rounds of 68-66-69 to claim eighth and this week’s test looks perfect for him.

Unlike most young golfers he is not long from the tee so River Highlands should suit, as should the demand for attacking golf.

In fact, the first of his two wins on the PGA Tour came on a very similar test in last year’s Wyndham Championship.

Take him to ride the wave of last week’s fun and games.

The best price is bet365’s +3500 but the each-way terms only reward five places.

Instead, take Caesars Sportbooks’s +3300 each way which pays eight places.

Henley Simpson to Shine

Russell Henley has been in fine form during the last few weeks, a run that has included fourth at the Masters and also 14th last week in the U.S. Open.

Those results count as two of the seven top-20 finishes he has logged in his last eight starts.

Can he repeat that high-quality golf this week?

There’s every chance because he’s got three top-20s in five starts at TPC River Highlands.

Current form, course form - all of the numbers are encouraging.

Back him to land another top 20 at +160 with the FanDuel Sportsbook.

Harman in his Sweet Spot

Before New Year Brian Harman recorded a pair of second-place finishes, but 2023 has been harder work for him, and with good reason - he’s a short hitter.

But when conditions have suited - as they will this week - he was seventh at Heritage and 29th at Colonial.

He also spent most of last week’s U.S. Open in the top 30 before finishing 43rd.

At River Highlands, he’s finished in the top 10 five times in his last eight visits.

Another good week is in his crosshairs but the field is stronger than in the past so take the conservative option.

He’s an excellent +190 at the FanDuel Sportsbook for another top 30.
