Picks to Win

Our picks to win the 2019 World Golf Championship is based on many attributes of the players. We will give a few choices for your bet and then place our favorite on the table along with a longshot pick that could help you win some serious cash from the 2019 World Golf Championship.

The main difference that the players will see while playing in Mexico City is the fact that it is about 7800 feet above sea level. That, in itself, will make the ball move differently after it is hit. Many professional golfers have trouble here and some don’t get acclimated into to finish well.

Our first pick is Bubba Watson. He knows how to hit the ball hard and finished tenth here a year ago and seems to have the makeup to win at this course.

Another is Phil Mickelson. He has the experience to come on the course and dominate as he has played several times on high altitude courses. There is some concern that he may be a bit tired and need some rest.

Lastly, look for Si Woo Kim to continue his good play as he finished third at Riviera and fourth at Pebble Beach and those finishes shouldn’t be ignored.
