Top PGA Picks for the WGC Cadillac Championship

Top PGA Picks for the WGC Cadillac Championship

Written by on March 1, 2016

The WGC-Cadillac Championship has a limited field at Trump National Doral Miami — a course that has been redesigned, making it difficult to pick a winner on the basis of past performance. It looks like the changes will favor the long drivers, though, which means that Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson and J.B. Holmes should be favorites. Let’s take a look at some of the top Golf online betting picks for you to consider as you put your wagers together.

Bubba Watson

Watson has appeared at five of these tournaments at Trump National Doral, and he has been in the top three on three of those visits, including 2014 and 2015. In his last seven starts on the PGA, he has walked away with two victories and finished in the top 15 four other times. Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy are scuffling along right now, but Watson is playing consistent golf and hitting well.

Bill Haas

In 2014 and 2015, Haas finished in the top 10 at this event. However, he has missed two cuts in his last three PGA tour events. The fact that there is no cut here will help. In his last six starts (including those two missed cuts) he has four finishes in the top 20. He is a little bit of a darker horse, but he’s definitely worth considering.

Charl Schwartzel

The native of South Africa finished in a tie for 45th at Riviera, but it was his first tournament in the US since last autumn, and jet lag had an impact for sure. With a week off, he should have his legs under them, and before that blemish, he had finished in the top 10 four straight tournaments, including a pair of wins on the European Tour. Here, he tied for ninth in 2014.

Marc Leishman

Leishman hasn’t played here since his 63rd-place finish in 2010, but he tied for fifth in the Northern Trust Open and took home the Nedbank Golf Challenge. He averages 303.8 yards per drive, making him more than enough of a hitter for this layout.

George Coetzee

Coetzee has already finished in the top 15 in four tournaments in 2016, and he won in his last start as a part of the Sunshine Tour. In his one spin at this course after the redesign, he tied for 16th. He tied for 7th in the PGA Championship last year, so he could be ready for a breakout performance.
