Zurich of New Orleans Features Teams for Fourth Year

The Zurich Classic of New Orleans is returning to the Bayou State for the first time since 2019 after the tournament got cancelled a year ago due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

FedExCup points are distributed as if the partners tied for first, as the winning duo will split the 500 points usually reserved for a sole champion along with the 300 points to the golfer who finishes second, for 400 points each.

The team format sees golfers play best-ball on Thursday and Saturday and alternate shot on Friday and Sunday. This is the fourth year the event has been played as a team format. The tournament is one of the oldest on the PGA Tour, having started in 1938.

Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown will be one team to watch out for this week. The pair lost in a playoff here in 2017, had the 54-hole lead in 2018 and finished T-5 in 2019. Kisner and Brown are available for the long-shot price of +5000.

Rahm, Palmer Return Looking for Another Title

Rahm and Palmer are back in Louisiana after triumphing at the 2019 Zurich Classic of New Orleans. The duo won by three strokes over Tommy Fleetwood and Sergio Garcia. 

It was Palmer’s first PGA Tour title in almost a decade, since the 2010 Sony Open. KH Lee/Matt Every and Brian Gay/Rory Sabbatini finished T3, while Seamus Power/David Hearn, Roberto Castro/Cameron Tringale, Hank Lebioda/Curtis Luck and Kisner/Brown placed T-5.

Rahm and Palmer set the alternate shot record of 65 in their second round of the 2019 tournament, so don’t be surprised if the pair once again light it up in the alternate shot format.


Golf is unique for many reasons, but one of them is the significant number of betting props available at weekly tournaments. The Zurich Classic of New Orleans 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 Zurich Classic of New Orleans, 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.
