  • Below, see the Fortinet Championship odds to win, plus best value bets

Following a two-week break after Rory McIlroy’s third career FedEx Cup title, the PGA Tour is back at it again, with the start of the 2022-23 season commencing. The Fortinet Championship in Napa, California is the site of the first event on the calendar, and it’s the final tune-up before the Presidents Cup.

Going low is imperative for success at Silverado Country Club (North Course), as all 15 champions of this event shot double-digit under par winning scores. The last two winners (Stewart Cink in 2020), shot -21 and the defending champ Max Homa posted a 19-under-par score.

This field typically isn’t one of the strongest ones on the PGA Tour calendar, and this year is no exception. Fellow upcoming Presidents Cup combatants Hideki Matsuyama, Max Homa and Corey Conners are the only three top-25 golfers in the world teeing it up. This marks the final year of the wraparound tour season, with January 2024 starting off the next tour season.

Taylor Pendrith Knocking On Door

Canadian Taylor Pendrith missed a good chunk of last season with a rib fracture, but that didn’t deter him from putting together an impressive campaign. In his last seven tournaments, he remarkably was T-13th or better in all but one of them. His closest brush at his first PGA Tour triumph came at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, where he was 54-hole co-leader, before settling for a second place showing.

Unsurprisingly, his ‘strokes gained’ stats over that time have been very impressive.

Pendrith has the added confidence of being named to the International squad as a captain’s pick for the Presidents Cup. He sports +3000 odds, which is very enticing, given that they’re longer than the top-five players on the board.

2022 Fortinet Championship Best Value Picks

  1. Emiliano Grillo (+4000): Emiliano Grillo’s breakthrough maiden victory came at this tourney back in 2015. He’s very nearly added to his total this summer, having finished runner-up in both the John Deere Classic and 3M Open in his last five events. He then posted two solid FedEx Cup playoff events. In his last 24 rounds, the Argentinian ranks second in total strokes gained and fourth tee-to-green.
  2. Brendan Steele (+4500): In 2016 and 2017, Brendan Steele treated this championship like his personal playground, having won back-to-back trophies. That’s part of eight straight cuts he’s made at this track. In five of his last seven overall tournaments, he’s been T-32nd or better, including a pair of top-10’s. In the last 24 rounds, Steele is first in SG: tee-to-green and ball striking.
  3. Chez Reavie (+6000): Just five starts ago Chez Reavie won his third PGA Tour title at the Barracuda Championship. In the last twelve rounds at Silverado Country Club, he ranks first in total strokes gained and ball striking. Every year since 2015 he’s been in the top-35 at this event, with three top-20’s, including a tie for third in 2020.
