RBC Canadian Open Golf Betting Tips – Who wins in Hamilton?

What do you make of our picks for this week’s action…?

 

The RBC Canadian Open takes the PGA Tour circus north of the border, but who are our betting tips for this week’s golf?

1904 saw the inaugural edition of the Canadian Open, which is the third-longest continually-running event on the PGA Tour.

Last year’s edition saw Nick Taylor sink a 72-foot putt to win a playoff, and become the first Canadian to win his national open in almost seven decades.

Hamilton Golf & Country Club will play host to the tournament for the seventh time, having last been the host venue in 2019.

There is also the US Women’s Open taking place this week. and you can see our picks for the second women’s major of the season right here.

Who will win? Matt Coles takes a look at this week’s action…

RBC Heritage golf betting tips and preview

Venue: Hamilton Golf & Country Club, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Date: May 30-June 2, 2024
Course stats: Par 70, 7,079 yards
Defending champion: Nick Taylor (-17)

Shane Lowry @ 25/1 with bet365

If we look back at the 2019 RBC Canadian Open, Shane Lowry finished runner-up. This year, the event goes back to the same venue – Hamilton Golf & Country Club, and the Irishman is in great form.

After winning the Zurich Classic of New Orleans alongside his good friend Rory McIlroy, Lowry has seen an upturn in his game.

That culminated in the fifth ever round of 62 in men’s majors, as he finished in a tie for 6th at the PGA Championship at Valhalla.

Lowry is 25/1 to win at Hamilton this week, for what would be his first individual victory since the 2022 BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

Adam Hadwin @ 50/1 with bet365

Adam Hadwin

After waiting seven decades for a home winner at the RBC Canadian Open, could we see it in back-to-back years? There’s every chance!

Adam Hadwin was another to play well at Hamilton in 2019, finishing the event in 6th. He also finished inside the top 15 at last year’s Canadian Open (before being tackled by a security guard as he tried to celebrate with Nick Taylor).

He is 50/1 to win the title, and if he was to do so, he would become just the sixth Canadian winner of his home national open.

Two-time winner Rory McIlroy is the favourite for this week’s RBC Canadian Open, coming in at 4/1.

What else is going on in the world of golf this week?

There is plenty of action taking place around the world this week, with the DP World Tour, Ladies European Tour and PGA Champions Tour all holding events.

The European Open will be the first of two trips to Germany for the DP World Tour this year, while the LET is in Sweden for the Dormy Open.

Following on from the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, the PGA Champions Tour sees the Principal Charity Classic in Iowa.

Who will take victory at these tournaments? Check out our betting tips for success in the rest of the week’s golf action below…

Jordan Smith @ 22/1 to win the European Open with bet365

England’s Jordan Smith has four-top 25 finishes in his last six events, including a T2 finish at the Jonsson Workwear Open in March. One of those results came at the PGA Championship, where Smith achieved his best major finish. He is 22/1 to win this week in Germany.

Gabriella Cowley @ 22/1 to win the Dormy Open with bet365

Gabs Cowley has 15 top-ten finishes in her career on the Ladies European Tour, with two of those coming in her last five events. She also finished T18 at the Jabra Ladies Open last week, so she is in good form. Can Cowley claim her first LET win this week? She is 22/1 to do so!

Bernhard Langer @ 18/1 to win the Principal Charity Classic with bet365

The German is still on the comeback train after Achilles surgery, but the 12-time senior major champion can never be counted out. Langer is 18/1 to win the Principal Charity Classic this week in a strong field, and to add to his 46 PGA Champions Tour victories.

Matt Coles

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
