Workday Charity Open Golf Betting Tips - Instalment 1 of 2 at Muirfield Village

Hideki Matsuyama is progressing into top form and The Workday charity Open at Muirfield Village is the 1st of a potential great two weeks for the course specialist

The PGA Tour hits Muirfield Village for a 2 week run with the Workday Charity Open the precursor to next week's Memorial tournament. The Workday Open set up will be a lot easier than the Memorial with different tee and pin positions used, and the greens prepped to run at circa 11' rather than over 13' on the stimp. We are beginning to see some trends and form lines develop now after the hiatus as player's games round into shape after competitive rust. It looks like Memorial in 10 days time will now also be a no fans event.

Note: I've posted my Workday charity open top 20 vs the field odds over on my new Patreon Platform, which provides extra exclusive content to supporters - click the link if you want to see what it's about

Muirfield Village is known as the primary second shot track on tour, and the general theme around here is: give it a rip off the tee but be very measured and accurate on approach (lots of long irons). Leaving the ball above the hole or missing greens on the #shortside especially will lead to automatic bogey or worse.
