Byron Nelson Golf Tournament (Thursday 11th May to Sunday 14th May)
The Byron Nelson Golf event has seen Kyoung-Hoon Lee dominate recently winning both the 2021 and 2022 renewals of the event. With scores of -26 and -25, Kyoung-Hoon Lee clearly loves playing at this course and tends to score very well across the four days.
Looking at the front runners for this event and with many of the top players not participating, it leaves Scottie Scheffler as the clear favourite at 4/1 to add to his PGA Tour wins this year. Scheffler is battling for the number 1 spot in the world and on his day is the clear best golfer in the line-up, hence his short price.
Tyrell Hatton is next best at 12/1 following his good performance last week, where he played some outstanding golf, but wasn’t consistent enough with his putting to take home the top prize.
Jason Day has performed well in recent weeks on Tour and finished well here in 2017, so he is one to consider at the 16/1 generally available.
The course should once again make for a low scoring event, so expect many birdies and the occasional eagle across each round so you could well see a final score of around -15 from the winning golfer this week.
Best Each-Way Odds
Looking at the best each-way odds in the market, we have 1/5 the odds 10 places with Coral, 1/5 the odds 10 places with Ladbrokes, and SkyBet offer 1/5 the odds 8, 10 and 12 places (with the odds obviously a bit lower in the 10 and 12 place markets).
All bets are recommended each-way
Kyoung-Hoon Lee at 22/1 with SkyBet (1/5 the odds 8 place) – 1.5pt e/w
With Scottie Scheffler a short priced favourite in golf terms, we are firmly in the Kyoung-Hoon Lee camp this week at tasty odds of 22/1 to complete a hat-trick at this event. Lee is not only playing well right now but will fancy his chances of winning at a venue he obviously enjoys playing at.
Jason Day at 16/1 with William Hill (1/5 the odds 8 places) – 1pt e/w
Aussie Jason Day is in pretty good form right now and, having won here before and recently placed in the top three, he can put in a good performance and aim for a second Byron Nelson victory. With a relatively modest field, his experience can be crucial come the final two rounds and enable him to get the job done.
