All the PGA Tour stars are back in action this week as part of a loaded field at the 2023 WM Phoenix Open, which tees off Thursday at TPC Scottsdale. Rory McIlroy is making his 2023 tour debut and will be joined by the likes of Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler and Patrick Cantlay. The Super Bowl will kick off in nearby Glendale, Ariz. a few hours after the final round. Scheffler beat Cantlay in a playoff for his first PGA Tour victory last year, spurring an amazing run that propelled him to No. 1.
McIlroy has since taken over that spot and is the 8-1 favorite in the latest 2023 WM Phoenix Open odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Rahm (17-2), Xander Schauffele (14-1), Scheffler (15-1), Tony Finau (18-1) and Collin Morikawa (18-1) also are among the top contenders in the WM Phoenix Open 2023 field. Cantlay is listed at 21-1, and two-time Phoenix Open winner Hideki Matsuyama is 28-1.
Before you lock in any 2023 WM Phoenix Open picks, make sure you check out the PGA Tour predictions and best bets from golf insider Patrick McDonald.
After spending time at FanSided and NBC Sports EDGE, McDonald joined CBS Sports as a golf writer in the spring of 2022. Now covering the sport from a broader perspective, McDonald still likes to dip his toes into the betting pools on a weekly basis on the PGA Tour.
McDonald takes a measured approach to his outright selections and is having a profitable 2022-23 season. He NAILED the Farmers Insurance Open, backing Max Homa (25-1) as his top choice! The expert also just missed a MASSIVE 130-1 score at the Sony Open when Hayden Buckley finished as runner-up. He hit another 25-1 shot at the Houston Open, taking Tony Finau to win.
McDonald is up almost 29 units this season, meaning a profit of nearly $2,900 for $100 bettors! McDonald also has been on the money on his matchup plays and cashed in HUGE on Brendan Steele (80-1) as the first-round leader at the Zozo Championship.
The expert finished the 2021-22 season up 42 units on his outrights, including a MONSTER 250-1 payout on Hudson Swafford at The American Express. Anyone who follows McDonald's advice has been cashing in!
Now, McDonald has pored over the 2023 WM Phoenix Open field for the best value and locked in his best bets and favorites to avoid. One thing we can tell you is that McDonald is fading Justin Thomas, who continues to lag behind the best in this field. The two-time major champion is "a shell of his former self," McDonald said, and the expert is looking elsewhere with his picks.
Instead, McDonald is targeting three long shots of more than 30-1, including one who is a MASSIVE triple-digit underdog! This golfer is "completely mispriced" and has played well lately at Scottsdale. If he can pull off the STUNNING victory, anyone who backs him would cash in HUGE! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in any WM Phoenix Open 2023 picks of your own!
So which 2023 WM Phoenix Open players should you target or avoid? And which golfer in the WM Phoenix Open 2023 field could bring a massive triple-digit odds payday? ...
