To make long-shot outright bets

If you follow me Twitter Or read this column, you know I like to bet on golf long shots (+2000 or more). There's something thrilling about holding a lottery ticket late on a Sunday. It also presents you with multiple hedging opportunities if you want to eliminate some of your risk.

I know there are some big names in this week's event, but I see a dark horse making some noise. Long shots dominate in 2024, so hopefully, we'll get a piece of that this weekend.

Most of my bets this week are based on course history. Here are some people worth splashing out on pizza for:

Colin Morikawa +2000
Justin Thomas +2500
Tony Finau +3000
Sahith Theegala +3500 (can't leave him out)
Adam Scott +4500
Will Zalatoris +6000
