The Bermuda Championship is next on the schedule, here are our 2020 golfer picks to win the event.
We are approaching the calm before the storm. After a couple of big events in the Zozo and the CJ Cup, things are much different this week. The PGA Tour is heading out to the beautiful and amazing Bermuda Championship.
There are a few things to keep an eye on this week. The Bermuda Championship has advanced a bit in what its accolades hold, as the winner will get around $200K more than previous years, as well as one major upgrade. The winner now gets an invite to the upcoming Masters.
No, not the Masters in a couple of weeks, but the 2021 Masters. We are looking at an incredible setup for someone to take advantage of this limited field, gain a nice paycheck, an invite in April to Augusta, and a solid grip on a trip to the FedEx Cup playoffs.
Last time there was an overwhelming favorite, it was portending doom for Matthew Wolff. Will it be the case for this week’s staff favorite?
Let’s get to it. Here are the golfer picks to win the Bermuda Championship.
Chris O’Day – I lean towards Maverick McNealy this week. The field isn’t that strong, there is plenty of opportunities for a young golfer to get their first win, so I’m going with Maverick McNealy.
Kasey Kuhrts – I’ll go with Rasmus Hojgaard. I know, crazy right. Since he returned in July, Hojgaard has finished inside the top 6 four times on the Euro Tour, including one win. In a field this weak, I think he has as good a chance as anyone to win this week in Bermuda.
Kathy Bissell – Stenson will win in a beautiful Bermuda event. Who wouldn’t want to be there?
Josh Chandler – In an excerpt from his article earlier this week…
“Stenson has had success at coastal courses in the past including wins at Royal Troon in Scotland and last year’s Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. In a season that has already seen veterans of the game Sergio Garcia and Stewart Cink pick up victories, it would be fitting for Henrik to follow suit this week at the Bermuda Championship.”
Jay Wilhelm III
Tim Letcher – For this week’s event, my choices came down to an old guy (Stewart Cink) and a young guy (Zalatoris). I’ll take Zalatoris to get the win, despite the fact that Cink has played very well so far this season.
Mike Randleman – Check out an excerpt from Mike’s fantastic weekly power rankings…
“He was most impressive at the U.S. Open (T-6th) and backed it up with T-8th at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship and in Vegas. Counting Korn Ferry Tour results, where he’s led the money list all season, Zalatoris owns a whopping 14 top-20s in his last 15 starts.”
Bill Felber – This is probably the weakest field of the season. Zalatoris has a lot of potential and would be a good candidate to step out in a field of this sort
West Valentine – It’s a pretty weak field and Zalatoris has been challenging even with big boys in the field. He’s going to win an event sooner or later and this is the type of event a first-time winner grabs.
Hans Geevers – He has an impressive 11 top-six finishes in his last 15 events played (PGA and KFT combined), including a sixth-place result at the U.S. Open.
Doug Hoff – Za Za Za Zalatoris!
It’s his moment. These young guys keep coming, and Willy Z has been nipping at the heels of a victory for far too long. Excluding his MC at the Sanderson Farms Championship, the guy has been a top 10 machine. The writing has long been on the wall for his breakthrough, and there’s no better time than on the island of Bermuda.
