The Workday Charity Open is a major boon for golf bettors. The brand-new event was added to the 2020 schedule and will represent the fifth tournament since the PGA Tour returned. The event will take place at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio just one week before the Memorial Tournament takes place on the same course.

Here’s how the public is betting the Workday Charity Open so far, via DraftKings Sportsbook.

Seeing Brooks Koepka and Justin Rose at the top of the list here should come as no surprise. Koepka and Rose rank sixth and 13th, respectively in the PGA Tour’s current rankings. It’s quite obvious from Koepka’s percentage of handle (13%) and tickets (7%) that his +1500 odds are drawing in plenty of bettors. Rose, on the other hand, is going off at +2600 and is pulling in 11% of total handle and 6% of total bets.

Viktor Hovland, who has one PGA Tour win in 2020 at the Puerto Rico Open, rounds out the top three by accounting for 6% of all cash and 5% of all tickets placed. The 22-year-old finished in a tie for 12th place in last week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic.

So far, the public is staying away from the top three favorites to win it—Justin Thomas (+1000), Patrick Cantlay (+1300), and Jon Rahm (+1300). Thomas and Cantlay are each pulling in 4% of the total handle while Rahm sits outside the top 10.

There are plenty of big-name options for bettors, but there are a fair number of longshot options to choose from like Marc Leishman (+4000), Cameron Champ (+7000), and Joaquin Niemann (+5000).

This weekend’s event will serve as a preview for the Memorial Tournament that takes place on the same course next weekend. Keep an eye on who does well because it could pay dividends two weekends in a row.
