At the beginning of golf’s COVID-19 return were concerns about play effect. Sure enough, some of the hottest golfers before the break have gone ice cold. In like manner has been unexpectedly strong play from those previously struggling. This week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic has an additional wild card. Many of the top PGA Tour players are skipping the tournament. As a result, there could be a wild fluctuation of possibilities with the Golf betting lines. Chalk is an understandable first response. But many handicappers may prefer a longshot bomb that could go off.
