World Wide Technology Championship R3 Odds & R1 & R2 Recap

History is being made this week at the World Wide Technology Championship, as for the first time on the PGA Tour, a tournament is being hosted at a course that Tiger Woods designed. Check the World Wide Technology Championship R3 Odds & R1 & R2 Recap here.

Whilst the great man isn’t any nearer a return, it’s fitting that two players from his era lead the way, with Camilo Villegas leading by two strokes from Matt Kuchar.

World Wide Technology Championship Round 1 & 2 Recap

Villegas and Kuchar turn back time to lead at the halfway stage 

Both Camilo Villegas and Matt Kuchar’s best days are behind them, but both men offered a timely reminder as to how they reached the very top of the game with two stunning second round performances. 

Villegas started his second round two shots behind 1st round leader Cameron Percy but showed real intent with a stunning eagle on the first hole. 

The Colombian then wasted no time in racing ahead, with four more birdies on the front nine and a further four on the back. Villegas hasn’t won since 2014 and will be desperate to end that winless drought this weekend.

Hoping to chase the Colombian down is Matt Kuchar. Kuchar is no stranger to success in Mexico as he won the 2018 Mayakoba Classic and will be looking for his first title since 2019.

Despite his veteran status, Kuchar played some good golf last year and showed he still has the scoring touch with his second consecutive 65 of the week. 

As this week has already shown, there are plenty of scoring opportunities to be had and despite Villegas’s two stroke lead, eighteen players will tee off today’s third round within six strokes of the lead.

Despite Villegas leading the tournament, he isn’t in the top three when it comes to the betting.

Now ranked all the way down at 752 in the world, Villegas hasn’t finished inside the top ten of a PGA event since 2020 and is only playing this week courtesy of a sponsor’s exemption. 

A four time winner on Tour, Villegas is one of the most decorated winners in this field and knows how to get the job done. Whether he has the composure to win his first title in nine years remains to be seen. 

Ludvig Aberg and Matt Kuchar will start today’s third round sharing favoritism.

Aberg looks destined for the very top of the game, and despite only turning professional midway through 2023, is already ranked 58 in the world and has won on the European Tour.

He was only denied his first PGA victory in the 2023 Sanderson Farms Championship when losing in a playoff. Although five strokes behind, he has the power and game to quickly climb up the leaderboard. 

Despite being in the twilight of his career, Matt Kuchar is still displaying all of the class which has seen him win nine times on Tour. 

Still ranked 64th in the world, Kuchar has come close to winning in 2023, finishing third in the 2023 Texas Open and seventh in the 2023 Fortinet Championship. 

Dynamite on the greens, he will be looking for his second Mexican success this weekend.
