2020 Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship odds, predictions and PGA Tour best bets

The 2020 Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship follows up the U.S. Open. As a result of the scheduling, a weak alternate field is in attendance for the third running of the PGA Tour event at Corales Golf Club in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (it was previously a Web.com Tour event). Below, we look at the 2020 Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship betting odds, and make our PGA Tour picks and best bets.

Regular PGA Tour programming will return next week with the Sanderson Farms Championship. The 2020 Masters Tournament is less than two months away and scheduled for Nov. 12-15. The top players from the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings will likely play sparingly until then.

2020 Corales Puntacana Championship Betting Picks – Favorite

Odds provided by BetMGM; access USA TODAY Sports’ betting odds for a full list. Lines last updated Monday at 1 ET.

Mackenzie Hughes (+1600)

Hughes is coming off a missed cut at the U.S. Open which snapped a strong stretch of play that ran through the FedEx Cup Playoffs. He returns to an event where he finished T-2 last year. It’s one of two runner-up finishes on the PGA Tour for the Canadian, to go with his 2016 victory at The RSM Classic.

Hughes gained 2.29 strokes per round on the field last year, according to Data Golf, and enters the week tied with fellow canuck Corey Conners as the team’s No. 2 betting favorite behind Will Zalatoris (+1200).

2020 Corales Puntacana Championship Betting Picks – Contender

Graeme McDowell (+5000)

McDowell won this event at 18 under last year, besting Hughes and Chris Stroud by a single stroke. It was his first PGA Tour win since the 2015 OHL Classic at Mayakoba and the 2010 U.S. Open winner’s fourth career PGA Tour victory.

The European Tour star’s last professional victory was February’s Saudi International, which featured a considerably stronger field than what’s in the Dominican Republic this week. He missed the cut at both the PGA Championship and U.S. Open, but he’s still one of the best players in this week’s field and is offered at a nice price to defend his title.

2020 Corales Puntacana Betting Picks – Long shot

Kelly Kraft (+30000)

These alternate-field events are a great time to purely chase value in the odds. It’s never known how much the top players in attendance will be properly devoted and the competition is wide open, especially at an event where the past two winning scores were minus-18.

Kraft is one of the few players in attendance this week who has played this event each of the last two years. He leads that group with 1.73 strokes gained per round and has finishes of third (2018) and T-5 (2019).

He’s worth a shot with a $10 bet returning a profit of $3,000.

Payne's Valley Cup at Big Cedar showcases Tiger Woods' latest course design

RIDGEDALE, Mo. – After the narrow fairways, high rough and impeding tree lines at Winged Foot’s West Course in the U.S. Open, the top players in the world surely could use a little relaxing width in a golf course.

Four of them will get plenty of opportunities to swing away Tuesday, as Tiger Woods welcomes Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose to the opening of his new Payne’s Valley layout at Big Cedar Lodge. That foursome will tee off at 3 p.m. Eastern (on Golf Channel) in the Payne’s Valley Cup on Woods’ first public-access design in the United States.

Named in honor of Ozarks native Payne Stewart, the three-time major winner who died in a plane crash in 1999, Payne’s Valley will be the third 18-hole course at Big Cedar. The resort’s Ozarks National, a Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw design, is the No. 1 course in Missouri on Golfweek’s Best Courses You Can Play list for public-access courses. Tom Fazio’s Buffalo Ridge Springs at the resort is the No. 2 course in the state on that public-access list.

Big Cedar also features two par-3 courses, Top of the Rock and Mountain Top. And the resort has hosted several PGA Tour Champions events, most recently with Phil Mickelson winning his first over-50 event, the Charles Schwab Series at Ozarks National in August.

Now comes Woods’ chance to show his design chops. His TGR Design company has built a handful of courses around the world, including Bluejack National north of Houston and El Cardonal at Diamante in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Woods has said his intent at Payne’s Valley is to present a fun, playable layout that can be enjoyed by families as well as serious players. The fairways are wide, presenting opportunities to swing away without too much fear of lost balls. But within all that width are strategic opportunities for players who properly chart their way around the course.

What little rough there is serves to keep balls from rolling off mountain ridges more than to punish wayward shots, and the layout features dramatic rock outcroppings that required dynamite for shaping. The challenge for talented players comes in the shaping of the greens and surrounds, which present a wide range of options for recovery. Payne’s Valley also features a bet-settling, par-3 19th hole designed by Johnny Morris, founder of the resort as well as Bass Pro Shops.

All in all, it should be a relatively relaxing round for the major-winning foursome on Tuesday. Take an early peak at the course with the photos below.
