Shriners Hospitals for Children Open odds

The PGA Tour heads to Las Vegas for its oldest running fall event – the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Organizers of the event at TPC Summerlin note the quality of fields and increased interest that drew 75,000 fans to the event a year ago. Full-week attendance five years earlier was near 25,000, but the 2020 event will be staged without fans as social distancing efforts continue.

The 2018 Shriners champion, Bryson DeChambeau, returns for his first start since winning the US Open last month.

Following the Shriners event, the PGA Tour stays in Las Vegas for the CJ Cup Oct. 15-18. The PGA Tour announced a venue change in August and the 78-man event will be staged at the renowned and exclusive Shadow Creek Golf Course, which hosted The Match between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson in 2018.

Notable golfers in Shriners Hospitals for Children Open

The quality and excitement cranks up in Las Vegas this week as a total of 23 of the top-50 players in the Official World Golf Rankings are in the desert for the Shriners event. That’s up 19 from last year and includes first time Shriners starters and 2020 PGA Championship winner Collin Morikawa (6), Louis Oosthuizen (16), Paul Casey (21) and young stars Matthew Wolff (18) and Scottie Scheffler (30). Wolff and Scheffler had top-5 finishes in the 2020 PGA Championship and Wolff was runner-up in the US Open. Scheffler finished fifth in the Tour Championship.

The event headliner is DeChambeau (5), who not only won last month’s US Open for his first major title, but also won the 2018 Shriners event for his first PGA Tour win and has finished top-10 three times in four consecutive starts.

Cantlay (12) returns having won his first PGA Tour title in the 2017 Shriners event. Cantlay boasts one of the best records in the Shriners event having lost in a playoff to Kevin Na (35) last year and he was also runner-up to DeChambeau in 2018. Na is the defending champion and won last year at odds of 60/1.

Other notable players include major champions Webb Simpson (7), Jason Day (38), Sergio Garcia (51), Zach Johnson, Francesco Molinari, Jimmy Walker and Keegan Bradley.

Also, Players Championship winners Rickie Fowler (40) and Si Woo Kim are in the field, along with Tony Finau (16), Hideki Matsuyama (19), Sungjae Im (24), Abraham Ancer (25), Matt Kuchar (28), Ryan Palmer (36), Harris English (37), Chez Reavie (42), Kevin Streelman (43), Joaquin Niemann (46) and Jason Kokrak (49).

Strong showings in the most recent Sanderson Farms Championship by Garcia, J.T. Poston, Henrik Norlander, Brandt Snedeker, Keegan Bradley and CT Pan should give them confidence and momentum heading into the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

A number of Las Vegas residents and players with ties to the area or UNLV are in the field including Na, Scott Piercy, Pat Perez, Charley Hoffman, Maverick McNealy and Ryan Moore (2012 winner) – who set the tournament record with a 24-under-par total that was tied by Webb Simpson in 2013.

Korn Ferry Tour points leader Will Zalatoris is in the field as one of the sponsor exemptions.

Course and tournament info

  • Course: TPC Summerlin

  • Date: Oct. 8-11, 2020
  • Par: 71 / Yardage 7,255
  • Purse: $7 Million / Winner $1.26 Million

The tournament rotated among 2-4 courses for years before settling at TPC Summerlin exclusively in 2007. The resort-style course is forgiving with wide fairways, oversized greens and limited rough. Scores are low when the PGA Tour pros tee it up in Las Vegas. 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 Gained: Off-the-Tee is a positive profile to target when starting your handicap of the players competing in Las Vegas. Players in the Shriners field who rank highest in SG: Off-the-Tee over their last 24 rounds include: Jason Kokrak, Scottie Scheffler, Robby Shelton, Danny Lee, Doc Redman, Brian Harman, Keegan Bradley and Tony Finau.

The leaders in Total Strokes Gained over their last 24 rounds includes: Tony Finau, Brian Harman, Webb Simpson, Collin Morikawa, Jason Kokrak, Scottie Scheffler, Brandt Snedeker, Patrick Cantlay and Denny McCarthy, who is No. 1 in putting and short game.

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 longshots who can win or payoff with a top 5, 10 or 20 finish in the tournament.

The 2020 tournament will have sunny skies and near 90 degree temperatures Thursday and Friday before dipping into the mid-80s on Saturday and Sunday. Desert winds will be stronger than expected but still less than 15 miles per hour.
