Sungjae Im, Byeong-Hun An ready to run

The Zurich Classic is the only team event on the PGA Tour calendar. The field consists of 80 teams that compete in rounds 1 and 3 in fourball (best ball) and in rounds 2 and 4 in foursome (alternative shot).

Because of its unique format, the Zurich Classic tends to be one of the most difficult to handicap events of the entire season. And if you’re expecting chaos at a golf tournament, it’s usually a good idea not to pay for the favorites.

The volatility levels the playing field a bit and there are three well-priced teams that could benefit. All odds from DraftKings.

Sungjae Im/Byeong-Hun An (+4000)

Despite not winning, Sungjae Im has been playing solid golf lately. He has finished in the top 20 in three of his last five starts, including his T8 at Augusta where he was the first lap leader. I’ll be pairing up with fellow South Korean Byeong-Hun An for this event, and if you’re wondering where An has been lately, the answer is that after a couple of poor seasons on the PGA circuit, he was forced to grain Return Ferry Tour. An already won in February and finished second in the KFT last week. So it looks like going down in class helped him find his game.

An also had his best-ever finish on the PGA Tour at TPC Avondale, losing in a playoff before the event was moved to the team setup.

Brendan Steele/Keegan Bradley (+4500)

It’s difficult to avoid just how important chemistry is at an event like this, but it certainly won’t hurt that Brendan Steele and Keegan Bradley are great friends who play practice rounds every week when they’re both on the field.

Additionally, Steele and Bradley should be a good fit for this course as they are both strong off the tee which should set the team up with plenty of good yardage views throughout the event.

After missing five straight cuts, Steele has finished T26, T13 and T48 in his last three events, while Bradley has had three top-11 finishes in his last five tournaments.

Kevin Kisner/Scott Brown (+9000)

One pattern to always keep in mind if you’re a regular golf bettor is that if a player is a trending pick for a week and doesn’t fight, everyone will usually jump off the train immediately. That’s happening a bit here with Kevin Kisner, who was a popular bet at last week’s RBC Heritage and is now being offered double odds for the Zurich Classic.

Of course, there’s the caveat that Kisner plays with Scott Brown, who hops between the Korn Ferry Tour and the big leagues, but Kisner also has a reputation for being a dynamo at these alternate formats.

Kisner and Brown have plenty of experience at this event and have had some strong results, including a second place finish in 2017 and a fifth place finish in 2019.
