Choosing a set of long shots each week is a fun exercise.

First, there is a lot of connotation about what can count as a long shot. How high or low are a player’s odds in this weekly quest?

Moreover, there is a feeling of futility. Each week, we dip our toes into the realm of the odds, recommending bets with a 100-1 chance of happening.

Many of these choices would be smarter as recommendations for a top five or best 20. But a few times a year we catch a big event, which makes these maneuvers seem worth it.

Last week we tackled that first issue – we advised Billy Hurschel, the world’s top 20 player he displayed at +6600 – but he cleared any doubts about his inclusion in this exercise by escaping with a win at Muirfield Village.

This week, the PGA Tour heads north of the border to the RBC Canadian Open. TOUR is eager for an exciting tournament, with a date on the horizon the following week, and the first global competition to emerge across the pond.

I did my best to catch the lightning for the second time in a row, with no doubts as to whether these dark horses were big enough. These three are going to be big bucks for anyone looking deep into the plate this week.

Cameron Champ +13000

The 26-year-old champ hasn’t had his best season on TOUR, yet his ceiling is too high to ignore at a price like this.

He has two Top 10s in his last five starts (including the Masters), but he’s missed 7 of his 13 cuts this season and has only earned hits around the green twice in that span.

Its combination of low floor and high ceiling can serve as a roller coaster for bettors. Champ’s holiday weeks end on Friday afternoon, but his best weeks often end with happy DFS players and bettors.

With a weaker field at the RBC Canadian Open, the champion’s height and aggressiveness has a chance to pay off. If this has been a solid week for him, there’s no reason he shouldn’t be crowned champion (forgive the pun) on Sunday.

Other books are definitely more confident in Champ this week than DraftKings: FanDuel and Unibet listed it at +8000.

Peter Malnate +25000

This choice requires a little bit of flight. First, we rely on the analytics experts at DataGolf and put some faith in their Course Fit tool. This model compares this week’s venue – St. George’s Golf and Country Club – with all the other venues on the PGA Tour.

Although we put our faith in the small sample size since the tour hasn’t been played here since 2010 (and has only done so once in recent history), DataGolf says that St. George’s closest counterpart is TPC Craig Ranch, two-time host of AT&T Byron Nelson.

Just last month, Malnati finished off T9 at Byron Nelson, recording his best hits earned in every round of the tournament since October 2020.

He’s been playing golf better lately, finishing two of his top 15 games over the past 12 months since the beginning of May.

Against a weaker field here at the RBC Canadian Open, Malnati has a chance to climb the leaderboard.

Chris Gotrop +32000

While Malnati is a mainstay at the bottom of the PGA TOUR betting board, Gotterup is a new face playing in only the second TOUR event.

This is Gotterup’s first event after turning professional after his final NCAA season in Oklahoma. Last month, he finished only one shot from the playoffs that determined the NCAA singles champion.

Recently, Gotterup tied with a low score in the US Open partial qualifier at Century Country Club in Purchase, New York, outperforming several TOUR pros who were vying for a place on the field at The Country Club next week.

While many regular members of the PGA TOUR are shunning this week’s tournament in favor of resting and preparing for the impending US Open, Gotterup is looking to kick-start his career and kick-start his career.

Gotterup clearly has the game to compete. Beginning his only PGA Tour as an amateur, he placed T7 at the Puerto Rico Open.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see his streak of top 10 finishers this week.
