Collin Morikawa 7/1

Collin Morikawa is third on the Official World Golf Ranking. Of course, his win at 149th Open in July makes him an instant favorite. Morikawa has been idle since winning the second major tournament of his career. Last year he won the PGA Championship for his first-ever major title. Morikawa is in good form, with finishes of 4th place or better in three of his more recent four events.

Xander Schauffele 9/1

Fifth on the Official World Golf Ranking is Xander Schauffele. Late on, Schauffele has finished 11th or higher in three of his previous four events. Schauffele’s most recent win was the TOUR Championship – 72 Hole Scores.

Justin Thomas 9/1

Entering the Tokyo Games, Justin Thomas is ranked 4th on the Official World Golf Ranking. Thomas bombed out at The Open with a 40th place finish. In fact, Thomas is mired in a horrible online betting slump. Only one of his last ten tournaments ended in a top ten finish. Thomas last won at THE PLAYERS Championship.

Rory McIlroy 11/1

Another big-name golfer that is struggling for consistency is Rory McIlroy. Concurrently, McIlroy is ranked 13th on the Official World Golf Ranking. In his last ten tournaments, McIlroy has only two top-10 finishes. By contrast, McIlroy did win the Wells Fargo Championship earlier this year.

Hideki Matsuyama 12/1

And then there is the homeland hero Hideki Matsuyama. Japan’s favorite son has a current 20th place on the Official World Golf Ranking. Most important of all, Matsuyama won the Masters Tournament in April. But Matsuyama is suffering from a Green Jacket Hangover. His best finish was 23rd in the five tournaments that followed. In fact, the Masters’ win was likely a fluke. That was Matsuyama’s only top 13 finish in over a year.

Viktor Hovland 12/1

Now Viktor Hovland enters the Olympics ranked 11th on the Official World Golf Ranking. He was the winner of the BMW International Open on June 27.
