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.
