Golf Betting Odds: Spieth eyeing Colonial spoils

It’s another exciting week on the PGA Tour as the action heads to Texas for the Charles Schwab Challenge and Jordan Spieth, who failed in his bid to complete the Grand Slam at the PGA Championship, will be hoping to make amends in his home state at odds of 11/1.

Everything appeared to be trending in the right direction for the American ahead of last week’s major at Southern Hills, as he won the RBC Heritage before finishing second at the AT&T Byron Nelson on the eve of the second slam of the season.

However, the 28-year-old only managed a T34 in Tulsa – ending his hopes of a Grand Slam for another year – but a trip to Fort Worth’s Colonial Country Club for the Charles Schwab Challenge on Thursday presents an excellent chance for win number two in 2022.

Of the nine times Spieth has teed it up here, he has recorded finishes of 7-14-2-1-2-32-8-10-2. That is a truly outstanding record and the rest of the field could have a tough time keeping up with the three-time major winner.

World number one Scottie Scheffler will have something to prove as he aims to bounce back from last week’s missed cut and he can be backed at 12/1 – the same price as 2022 PGA Champion Justin Thomas – to claim the spoils.

It is a stacked field at Colonial, with Collin Morikawa (14/1), Viktor Hovland (20/1), Will Zalatoris (20/1), Max Homa (22/1), Sam Burns (25/1) and Tony Finau (28/1) all vying for the title.

Meanwhile, over on the DP World Tour, the action takes place in the Netherlands at Bernardus Golf for the Dutch Open 2022 and there is plenty of major incentive on offer in Cromvoirt, with three places in The 150th Open at St Andrews up for grabs for the leading three players (not otherwise exempt) finishing in the top 10 and ties.

Belgian Thomas Pieters is the highest ranked player in the field at 36th in the world and he is 20/1 to land his seventh DP World Tour title, although stiff competition could come from the likes of 18/1 Bernd Wiesberger and Poland’s Adrian Meronk, who is 25/1 to break his DP duck.

Defending champion Kristoffer Broberg is back after a couple months away due to injury and is 125/1 to retain his crown, while there could be some value in backing Richard Mansell at 40/1.

Power is likely to be key at this course and the Englishman is sixth in strokes gained: off-the-tee and averages over 315 yards in driving distance this season, while he also finished in a share of sixth in the 2021 edition.
