Schenk Aiming for Redemption at Puntacana Championship

Second-Tier PGA Players Get Chance

The Corales Puntacana Championship gives the second-tier PGA Tour players a chance to win, which results in value golf lines with bookmakers.

Headlining sport betting markets is Wyndham Clark at +900. He is short in the market, especially when the second favorite is paying double at +1800.

There is excellent value to be snapped up at the Puntacana Championship this week in the Dominican Republic.

Turning Heartbreak into Success

Adam Schenk suffered a tough loss at the Valspar Championship when being stymied on the 72nd hole.

He would make bogey to fall out of a spot at the top of the leaderboard, but he should use that as a confidence boost ahead of the Puntacana Championship.

The 31-year-old has yet to win on the PGA Tour, and although he’s up against winners, he is arguably the form golfer in the field.

Despite the tough loss, he found a bit of humor, reported by golf news on Sunday.

“Wish I could have lightly hit somebody and stayed where I had a chance to get to the green, but it did not, and I didn’t deserve it”, Schenk said.

“It stinks to get so close”.

Bettors get +2800 for Schenk to realize his PGA Tour dream and that’s worth putting him on your ticket.

  • Pick: Adam Schenk (+2800)

Fiery Wallace Getting Close

Drama unfolded last week as Matt Wallace and his caddy had a verbal spat, but according to reports, they are fine now.

It came after Wallace wanted to hit a shot off the path, but his caddy advised against it. The result wasn’t desired, but Wallace remains a top pick with sport betting markets.

The English 32-year-old finished T7, which is one of his best results on the PGA Tour. However, he is a four-time winner on the European Tour, including wins in the Hero Indian Open and BMW International Open.

He was also good enough to finish T3 at the 2019 PGA Championship, so beating a field of this nature isn’t beyond him. Therefore, when the sportsbook offers Wallace at +2200, we can’t turn it down.

  • Pick: Matt Wallace (+2200)

Piercy Going Under the Radar

Cameron Piercy isn’t the most well-known golfer on the PGA Tour, but the 48-year-old Australian is worth a wager.

He enters our golf picks following a T16 finish at the Valspar Championship, which was an excellent bounce back following a missed cut at the Puerto Rico Open.

However, he has produced the goods on many occasions already this year, including a T12 finish at the Honda Classic, just five strokes behind the winner.

Without a PGA Tour win on his record, Piercy is desperate for success, and it could come at the Puntacana Championship.

Piercy was the golfer who broke the news about Cameron Smith and Marc Leishman heading to LIV, which he copped a lot of criticism for, especially from Smith.

“If there’s something I need to say regarding the PGA Tour or LIV, it will come from Cameron Smith, not Cameron Percy”, Smith said. “I just won the British Open and you’re asking about that? I think that’s pretty… not that good.

It’s not an overly hard field to beat, so his experience could come through.
