Sunday was a treat to everyone but Daniel Berger and Shane Lowry. Berger blew a 54-hole lead with a 4-over-par-74 and Lowry was one stroke away from tying eventual champion Sepp Straka after the Golf Gods forced Lowry and Berger to play the final hole and a half in the pouring rain. A tough pill to swallow for both, but an exciting finish for golf fans worldwide.

This week the PGA Tour heads to Arnie’s course for the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club and Lodge. Due to API being an Invitational the field is smaller than most tournaments. This also means the field is stacked with the world’s top golfers. Golfers such as defending champions Bryson DeChambeau (WD) (+2500), Tyrrell Hatton (+3000), Rory McIlroy (+1100), and Jason Day (+6000).

After taking a week off, world No.1 Jon Rahm is back in the field and once again the highest priced golfer on PointsBet Sportsbook at +800. Again, Rahm’s price is always a tough one back. His last win was back in June of 2021 at the US Open. That’s 10 PGA Tour events without a win and being one of the shortest prices on the board. He will win again soon, I’m just not entirely ready to back him at +800.

+800: Jon Rahm

+1100: Rory McIlroy
