Olympic Men’s Golf Betting Tips
Unlike the brand new course that was built for the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Kasumigaseki Country Club has been around since 1929 and recently received an overhaul from designer Tom Fazio. In terms of bunkering, visuals and length, the course has drawn comparisons to Quail Hollow and Augusta National. Like the aforementioned layouts, it’s plenty long at 7,500-plus yards with large fairway bunkers serving as the biggest defense.
We’ll consider course history with those venues, as well as WGC track record due to the similarity of the events. As far as current form, intangibles like motivation and ability to grind in serious heat seem nearly as important. This is reportedly a second-shot course and we’ll rely on Strokes Gained Approach stats more than others when considering our wagers at sportsbooks and betting sites.
