Golf Best Bets – CJ Cup Outright Betting Tips 2022

The CJ Cup will be played on American soil for the third straight year at a third different course with the Tom Fazio designed Congaree in South Carolina to host in 2022.

Best Bet

Scottie Scheffler
CJ Cup Winner 2022

The Masters winner profiles absolutely perfectly to win here at Congaree. Scheffler leads the Tour in GIR while he ranks Top 4 in Par 4 Scoring, Birdie or Better, Putting Average, Strokes Gained: Tee To Green and Strokes Gained: Approach. He finished T-22 in the 2021 BMW International, a key guide.

Mid-Tier Bet

Collin Morikawa
CJ Cup Winner 2022

Collin Morikawa has struggled for form of late but gets onto a course he should thrive at. He has enjoyed this tournament of late with two straight Top 12s including a 2nd last year. Ranks 3rd in Strokes Gained: Approach and 3rd in Proximity.

Value Bet

Tyrell Hatton
CJ Cup Winner 2022

Quality putter who has shown glimpses of his best lately. Ranks 12th in Putting Average. Key guide is his 2nd in the 2021 Palmetto on this very course while he has Top 18 finishes at the last two.

Longshot Bet

Russell Henley
CJ Cup Winner 2022

Consistent type who ranks 2nd in Strokes Gained: Approach, 7th in GIR, 8th in Strokes Gained Tee To Green and 9th in Proximity. Will go far closer than his odds suggest.
