The Ultimate Guide to the 2023 WM Phoenix Open: Betting Tips and Strategy

2023 WM Phoenix Open Betting Tips

February 9th – 12th, 2023
TPC Scottsdale, Scottsdale, Arizona,
Par: 71 / Yardage: 7,261
Purse: $20 million with $3,600,000 to the winner
Defending Champion: Scottie Scheffler
Check under the tips for my Tournament Notes.
With a prize pot of $20 million this year the Phoenix Open has drawn the best of the best on the PGA Tour.  Rory, Rahm and the defending Scheffler included.
My strategy pre event is to back five players each way plus this week I’ll also place a small wager on my long odds shot Rickie Fowler at 70/1

Doc’s Top 5 Each Way Betting Tips

Xander Schauffele 16/1

Never out of the top-20 in five starts at the Phoenix Open and T2, T3 on his last two visits.  Coming here in form with a T13 at Torrey Pines and a T3 at La Quinta.  Xander still has room to improve with his driving and iron game and if that happens here he’ll be in touch. 

Patrick Cantlay 20/1

T16 and T26 in his first two starts of 2023 and with Rahm and Rory in this field he’s dropped down the pecking order.  I wouldn’t be so quick to write him off this week, rested and ready, while a chunk of the field are coming from being sand blasted and soaked in Pebble Beach. Actually debuted also last year, played brilliant throughout, before losing in a playoff to Scottie Scheffler.

Sungjae Im 25/1

Has the iron game to contend here.  Hit 55 and 52 greens in reg at La Quinta and Torrey Pines respectively in his last two starts, the latter for a T4 finish.  Didn’t play last year but T17 in 2021 and T7 in 2019 on his debut.

Sahith Theegala 50/1

From ranked 889th in the world in 2021 to 34th today the rise of Sahith Theegala has been seriously impressive.  T3 on his debut here last year, a cumulative on the -4 par 3’s in there too.  Rested since a T4 at The Farmers.  Can contend.

Alex Noren 66/1

Under the radar.  Three top-5’s in his last three starts, including a T5 in Abu Dhabi last time out after a poor start.  T6 in Phoenix last year and when it comes to battling and grinding, there’s nobody better than Alex.

Long Odds Shot

Rickie Fowler 70/1

Hard to believe this will be the 15th Phoenix Open start for 34 year old Rickie Fowler.  Having resisted the lure of LIV to battle his way through bad form, Fowler finally broke back in to the World’s top 100 again with a T11 at The Farmers.  His last win came here in 2019; everything is trending well.  
Tournament Notes
The Waste Management Phoenix Open is the most-attended golf tournament on the planet, providing fans with an unforgettable experience. With less light, the tournament accommodates only 132 entrants, which includes top 125 golfers on the Eligibility Points List and three open qualifiers.
The tournament takes place at the Stadium Course, which is set up to its full potential, offering fans an epic closing stretch.
TPC Scottsdale has been renovated by Tom Weiskopf to cater to the modern game of power and precision. The dry desert air allows the ball to fly further, and the course is designed to handle it. The Bermuda greens average a little over 7,000 square feet, with a primary rough trimmed to two inches.
With greens that are inviting even from lies off the fairway, there’s an incentive to pull out the driver more often. But the larger hazard – the Sonoran Desert – awaits any poor shots off the tee. The course remains unchanged, with a total length of 7,261 yards.
The tournament takes place in the warm, dry climate of the Valley of the Sun. Daytime highs will reach the 70s, with easterly winds shifting to a prevailing southwest direction for the final round. Minimal wind should be expected throughout the week.
With the perfect blend of golf and entertainment, the Waste Management Phoenix Open is an event you won’t want to miss. So, mark your calendars and get ready to experience the ultimate thrill of golf at its finest.
