World Wide Technology Championship Odds, Field & Betting Picks

While the World Wide Technology Championship isn’t new to the PGA Tour schedule, this year’s venue El Cardonal at Diamante in Los Cabos, Mexico, will be played for the first time. It also marks a bit of history in that it’s the first course designed by Tiger Woods to be featured in a PGA Tour event. Check the 2023 World Wide Technology Championship Odds, Field & Betting Picks here!

PGA Tour Odds

Tiger himself has been spotted at the venue this week, but he will not be participating in the event as he continues to recover from foot surgery that he had after the Masters this year. 

The event has been around since 2007, taking place each year at the Mayakoba resort in Riviera Maya. However, LIV Golf circuit began using Mayakoba this year, which led to the PGA Tour looking for a new venue for this tournament. 

Despite being held in Mexico, Americans have won this event in 13 of the 16 prior versions. Viktor Hovland, the only two-time winner, and Graeme McDowell are the only non-U.S. players to win this tournament. 

The Course

El Cardonal is the first course that Woods’ TGR Design team completed, and it opened in 2014. A reachable par-5 hole opens things up, and those starting on the back nine get a 344-yard par 4, so there will be plenty of chances for golfers to get their rounds off to a good start. Woods said he designed the course to give golfers options depending on where their ball lies. There is some length, however, as it measures 7,452 yards with par being 72.

The wind would make this oceanside course more difficult, but conditions are expected to be mostly calm. Since the greens here are so large, expect tough pin placements to offset the pleasant weather conditions. 

Aberg Favored to Win First PGA Tour Event

Earlier in the PGA Tour Fall campaign, we saw Sahith Theegala pick up his first career win, and now Ludvig Aberg (+900), the young Swedish phenom, is favored to do so. After turning pro over the summer, Aberg quickly became a winner on the DP World Tour and was a part of the winning side at the Ryder Cup last month. He then turned his attention to the PGA Tour, where he promptly reached a playoff at the Sanderson Farms Championship. The following week in Las Vegas, a final-round 62 moved him to 12th in the final leaderboard. He’s rapidly rising up the standings to secure his PGA Tour position for 2024, but a win would guarantee that he plays in all of next year’s big events. 

Other Contenders

At +1100, Cameron Young—last year’s rookie of the year—is also looking for his first win. Young hasn’t competed since finishing 15th at the BMW Championship. He missed the PGA Tour Championship but is in next year’s big events for finishing inside the top 50. After several runner-up finishes in his rookie year, his only top-five this season was a second-place result at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, but a two-month break and being the highest-ranked golfer in this field put some expectations on his plate.

Sahith Theegala (+1300) dominated in a win at the Fortinet Championship to start the Fall portion of the schedule. He played in Japan two weeks ago and scored a respectable top-20 finish. He appears to have rediscovered his game after a difficult summer stretch.

We’re seeing Lucas Glover (+2200) for the first time since a torrid stretch in August put him into the PGA Tour Championship and in the conversation about a Ryder Cup berth. Before that run, it wasn’t assured that he would have even made the FedEx Cup playoffs. It started with a win at the Wyndham Championship and continued the following week with a win at the FedEx St. Jude Championship. He didn’t fare as well in the last two events of the playoffs, but he still didn’t shoot a round over par. In fact, he’s been no worse than even par in every round since June’s Travelers Championship. In that stretch, he has two wins and three other top-six finishes. 

Emiliano Grillo (+2500) bounced back from a tough summer with a top 10 at the ZOZO Championship in Japan two weeks ago. Now, he plays on the same surface as Colonial, where he won earlier this year, and his length off the tee will benefit him. 

Beau Hossler (+2500) has been one of the top performers in the Fall portion of the schedule and is in good position to play in the first handful of Signature Events in 2024. But with a win, he can guarantee a spot in all of them. Hossler is coming off a runner-up performance at the ZOZO and was seventh the week before that in the Shriners Children’s Open. Consistency has been a recent hallmark for Hossler, as he’s been in the top 30 in eight of his last nine starts. 

Longshots

Luke List (+3500) scored his first top 10 of the season in Mississippi last month when he won the Sanderson Farms Championship. He went on to place 18th the following week in Las Vegas before taking a couple of weeks off. Now, the big hitter is facing a course where that could play in his favor, and he’s coming off the confidence of that playoff victory a few weeks ago.

Matt Kuchar (+3500) ranks 12th in par-5 scoring, and the long holes here will give him plenty of opportunities to take advantage of this strength, and the options that the course will present in the short game will also suit him well. He was seventh in his only PGA Tour Fall event so far at the Fortinet.

2023 World Wide Technology Championship Odds

An unfamiliar course makes this a tough one to call, but all of Aberg’s starts have been on unfamiliar courses to him, and it hasn’t slowed him down yet. We’ll back the rookie along with Theegala, Glover, Grillo, and List as our longshot.
