What Does it Take to Tame Copperhead?

The Valspar Championship is set to conclude the PGA Tour’s stop in Florida after its series of tournaments in the Sunshine State in March. Attendance at the event will be at approximately 20 percent of normal capacity.

Innisbrook Resort, which is commonly referred to as the Copperhead Course, is a longtime favorite of tour players. Getting good results off the tee is imperative to success at Copperhead, so keep an eye out for golfers who specialize in driving accuracy when placing your pre-tournament bets this week.

The course is well known for its “Snake Pit,” which features two difficult par 4s sandwiched between the 215-yard par-3 17th hole.

Can Casey Pull Off a Three-Peat?

The last time the Valspar was played in 2019, Paul Casey became the first man since the tournament’s inception in 2000 to successfully defend his title.

Only 10 golfers since the Second World War have three-peated at an event on the PGA Tour (Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper, Tom Watson, Johnny Miller, Gene Littler, Stuart Appleby, Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods).

Casey won by one shot in 2018 over Woods and Patrick Reed and emerged triumphant a year later by the same margin over Jason Kokrak and Louis Oosthuizen. Prior to his 2018 victory, the Englishman hadn’t won a PGA Tour event in nine seasons.

Casey’s 1-over 72 on Sunday in 2019 was good enough to hang on for the win, with Bubba Watson and Sungjae Im rounding out the top five at 6 under.

Props

Golf is unique for many reasons, but one of them is the significant number of betting props available at weekly tournaments. The Valspar Championship is no different.

Sportsbooks are offering odds on things like whether there will be a hole-in-one, OVER/UNDERs on the winning score for the eventual champion and odds on which players from specific countries will have the lowest score, to name a few.

Like other sports, betting on props is a fun and unique way to enhance your golf gambling experience.

Live Betting

Live Betting is arguably one of the most exciting ways to bet on golf. If the team you placed a pre-tournament bet on is out of the running at any point during the Valspar Championship, you can bet on another team as the days go by and have another stake in the game.

If there are only a few men in the hunt on the final day, the odds likely won’t be significantly high, but your chances of winning are. We’ve seen this happen multiple times in the PGA Tour’s Return to Golf, as multiple tournaments have gone to a playoff.
