Golf’s “fifth major” kicks off this week at TPC Sawgrass as The PLAYERS Championship gets underway. There’ll be no shortage of excellent competition this weekend as golfers will look to hone their skills in preparation for The Masters in just a few short weeks. With a deep, competitive field there are plenty of opportunities for bettors to get in on all the action.

Most, if not all, of the world’s top players will surely be in the mix this weekend which leaves you with the decision of where to place your wagers. From John Rahm to defending champ Justin Thomas, there are numerous players for you to back. Luckily, our exclusive Edge Driver golf betting tool can assist you in finding the right golfers with good value to target.

With Betting tools ranging from prop projections to futures odds tracking, to our new customizable Edge Driver, you’ll no longer need to worry about betting without the proper research at your disposal. Our brand-new Edge Driver tool takes a look at specific golf performance categories which you can customize and cross-reference in an effort to get a leg up on the rest of the betting public. Here, we take a look at how the Edge Driver can inform us on which golfers have performed well in certain categories that historically yield success on courses like TPC Sawgrass.

Today, we’ll be taking a look at how the Edge Driver synthesizes data for this weekend’s competitors, specifically how they’ve fared on longer courses (7,000 or more yards). TPC Sawgrass checks in at 7,245 yards. Gauging Strokes Gained: Fairway Hit and Strokes Gained: Driving Distance since 2018 gives us a clear picture of which golfers are well-suited to handle the course’s par 5s, par 4s and that ever-so tricky island green on 17.
