This week’s event on the PGA Tour comes from south of the border, with the El Camaleon Golf Club at Playa del Carmen in Mexico hosting the World Wide Technology Championship.
Viktor Hovland is attempting to win this event for the third year in a row. The Norwegian has an obvious chance, but he has disappointed of late, which makes odds of 10/1 appear skinny. Similarly, Scottie Scheffler will be keen to get back to the top of the world rankings, but has putted poorly of late and we’ll leave alone.
This event is often seen as a holiday jolly, played at a resort course, and we’ll prefer to take some each way chances at lofty odds rather than hoping these favorites suddenly find form.
Instead we’re going to take a punt on Jason Day. The former world no.1 has shown signs of emerging from his recent slump, finishing eighth and 11th in his last two starts. He will be very keen to return to his former heights, and stands a chance of outperforming his odds if his putter shines.
Our second selection is KH Lee. The South Korean claimed third place at the CJ Cup last time out, finishing just behind Rory McIlroy, making it two high-class top-fives either side of the Presidents Cup, where he was one of the International team’s better players.
