ZOZO Championship Odds And Betting Insights

Following two good betting events in Las Vegas that included the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open match-ups and the winner on Jason Kokrak at The CJ Cup and more tournament match-ups winners, we head further west to Thousand Oaks, CA. The magnificent views and beauty surrounding Sherwood Country Club is the backdrop for the ZOZO Championship. I provide a preview with odds at TheLines. 

ZOZO ChampionshipNoteable withdraws this week due to COVID-19 include Adam Scott and world number 1 Dustin Johnson, who clearly was looking forward to playing at Sherwood CC where his father-in-law Wayne Gretzky lives on the course.

Just 78 players competing for the second straight week and no cut with all golfers playing four rounds. Except Jason Day, who withdrew during Sunday’s final round last week to cost tournament match-up bettors with Day over Rose, as Day had an 8-shot lead into the final round.
