Dustin Johnson, the world's top-ranked player, headlines the field for the PGA Tour's inaugural Palmetto Championship on Thursday at Congaree Golf Club in Ridgeland, S.C. In the final event before the U.S. Open, Johnson and Brooks Koepka are 8-1 co-favorites in the latest 2021 Palmetto Championship odds from William Hill Sportsbook. Also expected to contend for the tournament championship are Tyrell Hatton (16-1), Matthew Fitzpatrick (18-1) and Sungjae Im (20-1).
Before you set any Fantasy golf lineups or bet the 2021 Palmetto Championship, you MUST see data scientist Rick Gehman's power rankings.
With his expansive database of golf statistics, course data and betting odds, Gehman creates advanced models and back-tests them constantly. These models have produced 12 outright winners in the past 18 months and three this season, including Viktor Hovland at 25-1 at the Mayakoba Golf Classic and Daniel Berger at 20-1 at Pebble Beach!
At last week's Memorial Tournament, eight of Gehman's picks finished among the top 20 and four were inside the top 10. They included Patrick Cantlay and Collin Morikawa, who wound up in a playoff with Cantlay prevailing on the first hole to win the championship. The golf expert pegged Jon Rahm for a top-three finish and he held a six-shot lead through 54 holes, only to be forced to withdraw from the tournament after learning of a positive test for COVID-19.
Gehman has been on fire all season. At the AT&T Byron Nelson, three of his top seven golfers finished in the top 10, including runner-up Sam Burns. At the Masters, three of his top eight made the top five, and at Pebble Beach earlier in the season, three of his top four had top-five finishes! Anyone who has followed his advice has cashed in HUGE!
Now, Gehman has ranked his top 30 golfers for the 2021 Palmetto Championship. We can tell you he's high on Koepka this week, calling him "the man to beat." On the other hand, he has Brandt Snedeker outside the top 25 of his rankings for the Palmetto despite his recent resurgence.
Instead, the golf analyst is backing a pair of long shot with odds of at least 40-1 to finish in the top 10, including one who makes birdies in bunches. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is, and what else Gehman is saying, before you bet the 2021 Palmetto Championship or enter any Fantasy golf lineups.
