PGA Free Picks | Waste Management Phoenix Open

The PGA’s version of a frat party takes place this weekend, also known as the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The Waste Management Phoenix Open has the highest attendance of any PGA tour event, with 4-day attendance normally around half a million fans. I am going to start giving 3 or 4 golfers each week I like to pay out as the winner.


Waste Management Phoenix Open

Where: TPC Scottsdale, Scottsdale, Arizona

When: January 31st – February 3rd, 2019

Purse: $7,100,000


It takes a special kind of golfer to succeed at TPC Scottsdale, one that can play up to the crowd and turn the pressure of screaming golf fans into positive energy. Over the years, a few golfers have stood above the rest and others are just a gut feeling.

Hideki Matsuyama +850

Both current form and past results at Scottsdale is why I have Hideki on top of my list. Although he has some of the shortest odds of any golfer in the field at +850, he still provides a decent return considering how he’s finished here since 2015. Matsuyama withdrew with a wrist injury after a first round 69 last year, but he won the event in 2016 and 2017, and finished 2nd in 2015.

Matt Kuchar +2000

We’re getting great odds for Kooch considering he’s won 2 of the last 4 events he’s played, with his worse result a T19. On top of that, his finishes at the Waste Management Phoenix Open show he loves playing here with a T5 in 2018 and a T9 in 2017.

Billy Horschel +3000

Billy has been playing solid golf of late, finishing no worse than T25 in his last 5 events, including an 8th place finish last week at the Farmers. Although he hasn’t finished better than T24 at the Waste Management over the past 4 years, he’s proven he can go low there with 7 rounds of 69 or better in the same timeframe, including rounds of 65 and 66.

There you have my top 3 golfers to pay out this weekend at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. I will try to bring you picks for every PGA Tour event, so be sure to make Ask the Bookie your place for golf betting information.

The raucous crowd is sure to be fired up with the Super Bowl this weekend, so make some time to watch this event and see how the golfers fair on the famous 16th hole.
