This week, the PGA Tour travels to Grand Reserve Country Club for the 2024 Puerto Rico Open.

Before we dive into my favorite first round matchup bets for the 2024 Puerto Rico Open let's take a look at the current top five golfers in overall scoring average on the PGA Tour that are in this week's event field.

Top Five Golfers in Scoring Average

  • Chan Kim 70.14
  • Ben Silverman 70.21
  • Jorge Campillo 70.22
  • Martin Trainer 70.33
  • Rafael Campos 70.46

Now that we have determined who the top five golfers in overall scoring average on the PGA Tour (in this week's field) let's shift our focus to my favorite first round matchup bets for the 2024 Puerto Rico Open.

Rasmus Hojgaard +130 over Ben Griffin, Seonghyeon Kim

Since the beginning of January, Rasmus Hojgaard played six tournaments on the DP World Tour. In those six events just noted, Hojgaard accumulated an impressive five top 11 finishes, including a sixth-place result at the 2024 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters three weeks ago.

In relation to this week's current listed 2024 Puerto Rico Open field, in the last 24 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Rasmus Hojgaard ranks ninth in GIR (greens in regulation), 14th in scrambling, and third in par three scoring.   

Henrik Norlander +145 over Troy Merritt, Chris Stroud

Two weeks ago, Henrik Norlander fired a third round 65 at the 2024 Mexico Open at Vidanta on his way to an eventual 13th place finish. Norlander also finished 15th at the 2023 Puerto Rico Open.

Ben Silverman +140 over Parker Coody, Angel Ayora

The talented Canadian arrives at this week's tournament on the heels of two consecutive top 16 finishes on the PGA Tour, including a 16th place result at last week's 2024 Cognizant Classic in the Palm Beaches.  

Cameron Champ +150 over Joel Dahmen, Camilo Villegas

Cameron Champ posted a first round 66 at the 2023 Mexico Open at Vidanta two weeks ago en route to a 24th place finish. In my opinion, the Grand Reserve Country Club golf course sets up perfectly for Champ's skill set.
