The 2020 Masters is just a few short weeks away, but there are some prestigious tournaments that will take us right up to the fall version of the Masters. This week is the Zozo Championship, played in Thousand Oaks, California this year instead of Japan due to COVID-19 concerns. After two straight weeks in Las Vegas, the PGA golfers make their way further west to cooler weather.

Here is a look at a course preview, event betting history, top golf betting apps and more for this week’s PGA event.

  • Justin Thomas (+750)
  • Rory McIlroy (+800)
  • Hideki Matsuyama (+1600)
  • Adam Scott (+2000)
  • Paul Casey (+2200)

Last year’s winner was Tiger Woods, whose odds were 33:1 (+3300) to win the 2019 Zozo Championship. This means a $10 wager would have returned $330. After last week’s CJ Cup and these results from 2019, we can see that it is worth betting on golf!
