This week will be one of the few jointly sanctioned tournaments between the PGA TOUR and the DP World Tour, as the Genesis Scottish Open course will be a good mix of the best players from both tours. It will be a similar split between the US tours for the alternate event at the Barbasol Championship.

I’ll focus on my bets on the Scots here, as many of the world’s best players are set to play, including five of the top six in the current OWGR. It’s set to be a pretty competitive tune-up for the final Major of the year next week and should get everyone, including the fans, acclimated to the time change and links style of play.

These weeks always provide a difficult task to research and find some players who may be lesser known in the US but can compete in these layouts. There is also always the big weather factor, as this course is on the North Sea coast, which makes it a bit difficult to project early in the week.

I will start my card below by looking for good numbers on strong players and will adjust or add as more information on weather and tee times is gathered prior to the event.

best buys

Collin Morikawa +3000 (BetRivers)

I was surprised to see this number on the reigning golf champion of the year list as he showed really solid form the last time we saw him at the US Open. Had it not been for a horrendous Saturday at The Country Club, we certainly could have been talking about Morikawa winning another major championship and positioning himself to win the Masters just to complete his career Grand Slam.

Instead, he just didn’t have it in the third round and shot a 7-for-77 to knock him out of contention. It had to be a discouraging day for him, but he rebounded with one of the best rounds in the field on Sunday with a 4-under-par 66 to finish in the top five.

This week he returns to the Scottish Open, an event where he made the cut but finished at the back of the field last year. It was notably the event where he struggled with his irons and ended up making a trade with them by going to the Open Championship.

He won the Claret Jug that week, and I hope he comes to the Renaissance Club this week well prepared with what he needs to do to be successful. I love the way this is all set up for Morikawa, and for me, it’s an easy play in this issue.

Jordan Spieth +3500 (Bet Rivers)

It seems like every year we cross the pond to links golf, Jordan Spieth is in contention. Even when he had some of his low years, he still produced strong finishes. He did it again last year, finishing second to Morikawa at Royal St. George’s, posting three top-10 finishes in his last four trips to The Open, with none outside the top 20.

We know that Spieth is one of the most creative minds in the game, and these types of courses seem to bring that out in him. While he hasn’t played in this event, I give him a lot of credit just for his overall linking ability, and when I combine that with the solid odds available, he’ll be my second addition to the card this week.

Aaron Rai +8000 (BetMGM)

If you want to take a shot at the board, there are several ways to do it. I’m going to be a bit more conservative and pick the winner of this 2020 event in Aaron Rai. His victory was before the best players in the world really infiltrated this tournament, but he still outplayed Tommy Fleetwood in a tiebreaker to capture the win.

This year, Rai has done everything possible to come to the United States on the PGA Tour. He has had mixed results with a couple of top-15 finishes, his best being a Farmers T6 in January. However, his form seems to be picking up, as he has won shots in every category from tee to green in his last two tournaments.

Combine his strong form with his comfort level on this course, where he won and finished T26 last year, and I’ll give the Englishman a chance for another superior result at The Renaissance Club.
