Odds to win the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open

In the years to come, something regarding this event will make an excellent trivia question if it doesn’t already. In which tournament did Tiger Woods record his first PGA Tour win? The correct answer is right here, in 1996.
The Shriners provided a great ending in 2010, when Jonathan Byrd made a dramatic ace in a sudden-death playoff to clinch the win over Martin Laird and Cameron Percy.
Dylan Frittelli is peaking at the right timeAs for this year, one entrant who is playing well at the moment is South Africa’s Dylan Frittelli, who has showed promising form in top 10 finishes at the Sanderson Farms Championship and Safeway Open. Born in Johannesburg and a member of the NCAA championship-winning University of Texas squad in 2012, Frittelli became better known to American golf fans with his impressive win last summer at the John Deere Classic. I will consider him for the win at +4000 and in each way wagering.
Keep an eye on Scottie SchefflerOne young player I see having an impact here and in a big way in the years to come is Scottie Scheffler. Like Frittelli, Scheffler also is a Texas Longhorn but just turned pro recently and is 23.
Scottie knows one thing for sure: He's fully exempt for the 2019-20 PGA Tour season! As this @TaylorMadeGolf Golf Central Update explains, former #NCAAGolf extraordinaire Scottie Scheffler will get plenty of perks thanks to his play on the @KornFerryTour this past season. pic.twitter.com/fTuh2uFu9j— Golf Central (@GolfCentral) September 4, 2019
Cantlay is an appealing pickA number of players already in the Presidents Cup will be playing, including Koepka, Patrick Cantlay, Bryson DeChambeau, Adam Scott, Webb Simpson, Hideki Matsuyama, Cameron Smith and Abraham Ancer. Among these, though his odds are low at +1200, Cantlay is who I fancy the most. In two appearance in this event, he’s finished first and second. That won’t be much for value, but his past form is hard to ignore.
DeChambeau is the defending Shriners champion, but he faded badly last week at Safeway, so I’ll pass for now. Simpson is a past champion of this tournament and definitely worth a play for each-way and match-play scenarios.
