Bermuda Championship Picks, Predictions and Odds

The fourth edition of the Bermuda Championship could be the toughest edition of this PGA Tour event to date. Wind is expected to play a significant factor over the course of the tournament this weekend with sustained winds of 20 MPH and even stronger gusts. Port Royal Golf Course is one of the shortest courses on the PGA Tour, checking in as a par 71 that’s just 6,828 yards. However, golfers cannot underestimate this course as the average score here in 2021 was 70.76, and the threat of wind keeps big hitters from challenging the greens. The average drive in the 2021 Bermuda Championship was just 268.3 yards, the lowest mark on the PGA Tour last season.

The 2022 Bermuda Championship will be played at the beautiful Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton Parish, Bermuda. This was the eighth golf course built on the island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, and there hasn’t been another course constructed on Bermuda since Port Royal opened in 1970. The tournament will run from October 27-30.


  • Russell Knox to Win the Event (+3500)
  • S.H. Kim - Top 5 Finish (+700)
  • Garrick Higgo to Miss the Cut (+175)

Russell Knox to Win the Event (+3500)

Although Russell Knox has yet to finish in the Top 10 at the Bermuda Championship, he hasn’t missed it by much. Knox has taken part in every Bermuda Championship to date, and he finished T11 in 2019, T16 in 2020, and T12 in 2021. Only two of his 12 rounds were in the 70s, and he finished nine of his 12 rounds between 67 and 69. That kind of consistency should really come in hand this weekend, making Knox a solid wager at 35-1 to win his first PGA Tour event in seven years. Knox has familiarity with these courses as a Scot that resides in Ponte Vedra Beach.

S.H. Kim - Top 5 Finish (+700)

There’s a lot to like about S.H. Kim’s chances at this week’s Bermuda Championship. Kim finished T4 at the Shriners Children’s Open and T13 at the Sanderson Farms Championship earlier this month, but he struggled at The CJ Cup last week. This is the type of course that Kim should fare well on though, due to his skill with the putter. Kim currently ranks in the top 20 in most putting categories on the PGA Tour.

Garrick Higgo to Miss the Cut (+175)

The 23-year-old Garrick Higgo was up and down at this event last year. He was T10 after the third round due to rounds of 67 and 65, but he also shot a 72 and closed out the event with a paltry 75. Higgo won the Palmetto Championship last summer, yet he missed the cut in 13 of the 22 events he entered during the 2021-22 PGA Tour season. His skillset doesn’t match up well to Port Royal, as he heavily relies on his driver and isn’t accurate with it, and he is simply an average putter.
