Butterfield Bermuda Championship – Gambling/DFS Preview 2022

Port Royal Golf Course – Bermuda

Last week we had easily the best field of the PGA Tour fall swing season where I hit another winner on Rory McIlroy. This week we have the worst field I maybe have ever see for the Bermuda Championship at Port Royal Golf Course.

Course Breakdown

Par 71, 6828 yards, very short yardage course with most golfers hitting less than driver off the tee on most holes besides the Par 5s, the Par 5s are short with all three under 555 yards and they’re the three easiest holes on the course with the ability for the entire field including the shortest hitters to get there in two, six of the Par 4s are under 400 yards with only one on the course playing over 450 yards (and only from the back tee boxes), all four Par 3s are over 200 yards, average sized fairways with bunkers in the landing areas, lots of elevation changes throughout the course especially off the tee, Zoysia grass rough shouldn’t be too thick or penal, water in play on five holes, small to average sized Bermuda grass greens without much slope or undulation and are pretty soft and slow, weather is always a factor here with a ton of wind that changes the way the course plays out each year, driving accuracy here is much lower than tour average (~53% vs. 62%), 

Tournament Notes

  • This is only the fourth year of this event with the first year being an alternate field event the same week of the WGC-HSBC Championship, which no longer exists

DraftKings/Betting Notes

  • This is such a shitty field so I’m taking slightly more golfers this week for a bigger card but cutting all my bets in half of what they typically would be since I don’t really trust any of these scrubs. I also considered doing each ways but the odds aren’t worth it.
