  • The World Wide Technology Championship is Nov. 2-5 from Mexico.
  • The season has three events remaining.
  • Ludvig Aberg (+900) has the best odds to win.

With only three events remaining, the PGA Tour season is nearing its end.

This week, the World Wide Technology Championship will be held in El Cardonal at Diamante in Los Cabos, Mexico. 

Although not a PGA Tour signature event, several solid players are in the field.

The par-72 course, which plays to 7,452 yards, was designed by Tiger Woods. It is the first course designed by Woods to host a PGA Tour event. Opening in 2014, it was the first course completed by Woods’ TGR design firm.

The fairways and greens are massive, but the course’s best defense might be the wind, as it is expected to swirl. There will also be some elevation changes, as there’s a 240-foot drop from the 17th tee to the third fairway.

Conditions are expected to be firm and fast, with the region not receiving much rain at all throughout the year.

Since this is the first time the course has hosted the event, there isn’t much to go on when selecting players. 

I will be targeting players who can perform well in the wind, as well as ones who enter in good form.

Ludvig Aberg, who recently competed for Team Europe in the Ryder Cup, has the best golf odds to win at +900.

Below are some players to target, followed by my PGA Tour betting card for the week:

*All odds as of October 31.

World Wide Technology Championship Predictions 

Ludvig Aberg is expected to win the Worldwide Technology Championship with a 10% implied probability — i.e., the overall chance of a potential outcome in relation to the odds — according to betting markets.

Cameron Young is next at 7.69%, while Sahith Theegala follows at 5.88%.

World Wide Technology Championship Best Bets

Ludvig Aberg +900 Odds to Win

Aberg won on the DP World Tour a few months ago, but he’s still seeking his first career PGA Tour win. While he’s No. 58 in the Official World Golf Rankings, the way he’s playing of late he might be the best player in the field.

Sahith Theegala +1600 Odds to Win

Theegala picked up his first career victory at the Fortinet Championship to open the fall swing and followed it up with a T-19 at the ZOZO Championship a few weeks ago. Now that he knows what it takes to win, don’t be surprised if he pulls through again soon. 

World Wide Technology Championship Sleepers

Luke List +3300 Odds to Win

With the course hosting the event for the first time, it’s unclear exactly what type of player it will favor, but based on how it looks, it might suit List’s game well. He hits the ball a long way, so the wide fairways and big greens could play in his favor. He’s also coming off a win a few weeks ago at the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Akshay Bhatia +3500 Odds to Win

Bhatia has performed well in tropical climates where windy conditions have played a role, which should help him this week. The 21-year-old skipped college, so he’s been a professional for a few years and won for the first time earlier this season at the Barracuda Championship.

World Wide Technology Championship Betting Card & Other Predictions

  • J.J. Spaun Outright Win +2800
  • Beau Hossler Top-20 Finish +110
  • Sahith Theegala Top-20 Finish -135

I am keeping my card very small this week since there isn’t much data to go off of and not many big names in the field.

Spaun and Hossler played well at the ZOZO Championship in their last starts, while Theegala is becoming one of the game’s best players.
