Betting preview: Christiaan Bezuidenhout to come out on top at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship

The PGA Tour heads to Bermuda this week and Planet Sport tipster Jack Kelliher has four selections for the tournament.

There are just three players from the world's top 50 in action at Port Royal Golf Course this week and Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick leads the betting as he seeks to win a maiden PGA Tour title.

The 2018 Masters champion Patrick Reed and 2016 winner Danny Willett will also be striding out on the greens of Bermuda.

However, the lack of big names taking part means there is an opportunity for other players to win their first event of the year, including Planet Sport's tip Christiaan Bezuidenhout.

The South African - who has won five times worldwide - is looking for his first win of 2021.

The 27-year-old, a three-time European Tour winner, is being tipped by Jack Kelliher to continue his recent form on the greens and win the Bermuda Championship.

"This is a player who statistically sits first in Strokes Gained Tee to Green performance over the last 24 rounds on tour. He sits first in Putting over the last 24 rounds on tour and fourth in Around the Green," Kelliher said.

"There's not much that we can't like about the chances of Christian Bezuidenhout at 16/1, seven places available - he will be headline selection for the week."

The next selection for Kelliher is the relatively unknown Mark Hubbard.

Ranked 144th in the world, the American has no significant wins in his career but according to our tipster, the recent performances of the 32-year suggest that may soon change.

"A very consistent player on tour and he has top 20 stats in key areas such as proximity to the hole, stokes game approach and fairways found.

"These are going to be killer stats this week and Mark Hubbard at 66/1 to seven places available will be my second selection of the week."

The third selection of the week is Scottish golfer Russell Knox who has gone well around this course before.

"He's got two top 20s at previous Bermuda Championships and again he's showing more consistency in his game in 2021 than he had done in the past 18 months.

"I think this short course will suit him down to the ground. His approach play is second on the PGA Tour over the last 24 rounds - that's going to stand him in good stead this week."

The final selection of the week is Matthew Nesmith priced at 66/1.

Keliher concludes: "Much like one of the previous (players) mentioned, he is in the top 20 of the fairways gained, approach play and proximity to the whole."
