2021 Bermuda Championship – BetWithUS Golf Betting Tips

Seamus Power – each way @ 35/1 (36.00)

Luke Donald – each-way @ 250/1 (251.00) & Top 20 @ 7/1 (8.00)

J J Spaun – each way @ 200/1 (201.00) & Top 20 @ 6/1 (7.00)

2021 sees the third renewal of the Bermuda Championship on an extremely short quirky
coastal track. Players able to control their ball flights and solid tee to green games
combined with an ability to handle the Bermuda greens should excel this week.

Seamus won’t need Power to win this week

Seamus Power – each way @ 35/1 (36.00)

There’s no doubt about it as last season drew to a close Seamus Power had become one of
the most consistent and improved performers on the PGA Tour with his first tournament
win at the Barbasol Championship his just rewards. There was a point in May when he was
struggling to get many starts but a remarkable run of five top 20 finishes in succession prior
to his maiden win when sometimes he needed the previous week’s top 10 to get in the next
event was sensational given the pressure he must have been under. The new season is yet
to get off the ground for the thirty-five-year-old from Waterford in Ireland but his 21 st on his
last start at the Shriners suggested better is to come this week. I was disappointed by his

opening show in the mid-20s, but he drifted yesterday evening to 35/1 (36.00) at a couple of
firms and I suggest jumping on given he’s performed respectably the last two years here
when out of form

This week looks like the perfect time for ‘Cool hand
Luke’ to make a comeback.

Luke Donald 250/1 (251.00) each way and 7/1 (8.00) top 20
It’s fair to say the two previous winners, were total shocks and a step back in time for both.
Last year Brian Gay won at 200/1 after the year previous coming 3 rd with pretty much
nothing in the interim period. Brian Gay is a short off the tee fairways and greens specialist
who at forty-eight years of age, likely thought his best days were behind him. He though
had a strong PGA Tour career with five tournament wins, one of which was at Hilton Head in
the Heritage Classic when breaking all the previous scoring records. I wouldn’t be surprised
if that form in South Carolina correlates with this week’s test of tee to green accuracy plus
Bermuda greens putting. If we believe that correlation then it leads us directly to
Englishman, Luke Donald who has the most ridiculous and remarkable form at Hilton Head
Golf Links without ever winning. Seven top 3 finishes in nine years is a remarkable plethora
of form for the former World number one. Luke Donald has still managed a couple of top
20 finishes on the PGA Tour this year and last season showed promise at the Royal Port Golf
Course when 40 th after a strong opening 36 holes. 2020 was so bad for Donald, it’s not
surprising he fell away with a lack of sharpness at the top-level possibly finding him out once
he got in contention. This year, the forty-three-year-old won’t have that excuse having
played well recently in the Dunhill Links Championship and the Open de Espana over on the
European Tour. With Brendan Todd launching his career comeback in 2019 hereafter the
most dreadful slump and Brian Gay last year, it’s an argument that Luke Donald has a similar
profile of trying to get a once outstanding career back on track.

J. J. could be a Spauny winner this week

J J Spaun 200/1 (201.00) each way and 6/1 (7.00) Top 20
Using a similar correlation with the Heritage Classic brought several names to my attention
with the initial one being Mathew Nesmith. The travel to and from Japan made me a little
luke-warm about his chances and looked further down the field to find J J Spaun who was 6 th
in the 2017 Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links. Recent weeks have found the California
man threatening to produce, particularly last time at the red-hot Shriners Childrens Open
where he was a creditable 35 th . A runner up finish at the Albertsson Boise Open a month
prior suggested he was back near his best form which has often been at coastal tracks like
Royal Port Golf Course with a runner up finish at Sea Island in the RSM Classic and a 3 rd place

at the Mayakoba Golf Classic. Yes, it would be a little Spauny if JJ were to win this week but
not out of the question and offers between 150 and 200/1 are very acceptable.
