Shriners Children’s Open Odds: Course Info, Key Stats

Written By FairwayJay on October 3, 2021 - Last Updated on October 6, 2021

The PGA TOUR heads to Las Vegas for the next two tournaments starting with the Shriners Children’s Open. The event has grown popularity and field strength in recent years, and this year’s tournament drew 𝟭𝟭 of the top 𝟮𝟱 players and 27 of the top 50 in the Official World Golf Rankings. We’ll take a look at the Shriners Children’s Open odds in this betting preview for the event.

Gambling in Las Vegas is about defying the odds, and last year’s winner did just that. Martin Laird cashed in as the winner at huge longshot odds. Laird lacked form and had played in only three events since March due to left knee surgery. So despite a stronger field last year, Las Vegas proved again that in the City of Sin, anyone can win.

Following the Shriners event, the PGA Tour stays in Las Vegas for the CJ Cup Oct. 14-17 with a venue change to The Summit Club.

COURSE AND TOURNAMENT INFO

  • Course: TPC Summerlin
  • Location: Las Vegas, NV
  • Date: Oct. 7-10, 2021
  • Par: 71 / Yardage 7,255
  • Purse: $7 Million / Winner $1.26 Million
  • Fairways/Rough: Bermudagrass
  • Greens: bermudagrass
  • TV: Golf Channel
  • Twitter: @ShrinersOpen

TPC Summerlin has been the host course since 2007. The resort-style course is forgiving with wide fairways, oversized greens and limited rough. Yet in order to attack and access pins on larger undulating greens, hitting fairways in proper position has proven to be advantageous.

Since 2009, every winner has ranked inside the top 25 in driving accuracy for the week at TPC Summerlin. Scores are low as a majority of pros can also reach three par 5s for a chance at eagle, and birdies are plentiful. The only defense against low scores is strong winds, which reached 40 MPH gusts when Cantlay won in 2017 with a 9-under-par score   .

Strokes GainedOff-The-Tee is a positive profile to target when starting your handicap of the players competing in Las Vegas. Some of your leaders in this field over their last 36 rounds include:

  • Brooks Koepka
  • Keith Mitchell
  • Corey Connors
  • Maverick McNealy
  • Cameron Champ
  • Luke List

Fairways Gained and Good Drives Gained are stats to monitor as well, and the players in the field who are top 10 in both over their last 50 rounds include:

  • Brendon Todd
  • Chez Reavie
  • Brian Stuard
  • Corey Connors
  • Abraham Ancer
  • Doug Ghim

It’s also another good week to add some capable longshots to your betting bag. Strong approach play and the chance to get on a hot roll of the dice on the putting greens provides an opportunity to cash in on a number of players outside of 30/1 of 40/1 who can also payoff in the top finishing position betting market.
