Since the PGA Tour has been back these last few weeks, it’s been fun to text with Harry and

review our golf bets for the week. After being in the running on Sunday at the Charles Schwab Challenge with Xander Schauffele and Bryson DeChambeau, I felt fairly confident that either Sungjae Im, Webb Simpson, or Tyrrell Hatton would win the RBC Heritage. Other than Im’s missed cut, that was a pretty solid prediction as I nailed two of the top-3 golfers including the winner in Simpson.


This week Harry and I are starting a challenge for the remainder of the summer…The Best Bet Corner PGA Tour Betting Challenge. Each week, he and I will get a simulated $200 to bet…$100 on golfers to win that week’s tournament and another $100 to be spread amongst top-5, top-10, and top-20 bets. We’ll track the progress to see who does the best and whether we can produce positive ROIs.


Here are this week’s plays:
