This week sees the LIV Golf Tour moving on at a pace, catching more momentum for a stop in Chicago. There is a little bit of guesswork needed to work out how the Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove course will play but it’s hosted a slew of major junior golf plus the Solheim Cup to help.
What has been interesting in recent weeks is the way the standard of golf on the LIV Tour is rising and the European Tour flagship event, over in England saw most of the LIV golfers excel last week.
Talor Gooch was the best in 4th while Patrick Reed finished strongly for 5th. Behind them, Englishman, Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter and Richard Bland looked in good form while Mexican, Abraham Ancer caught the eye on his Wentworth course debut.
Those players will have sharpened up well for the week ahead and require the utmost respect.

Friday, September 16 – Tuesday, September 20, 2022 at Sugar Grove
Dustin Johnson Looks a Strong Favorite
BMR readers and followers of my column would have been pleased Dustin Johnson won for us at the previous LIV event in Boston at the price of +750 so it’s fair we ask ourselves if the laid-back Johnson can win again.
Yes, Dustin Johnson can win again but it’s fair to say his price of +600 is short enough now, having constricted further for such a strong field but he’s hugely respected given he was 2nd at the BMW Championship of 2022 at Olympia Fields ‘down the road’.
Don’t Forget Bryson
It would be easy to forget Bryson DeChambeau currently, who is easing his way back into competitive action after injuries derailed the first half of 2022.
I was taken by his effort at the Open Championship in July when he looked to be getting back to his best form.
His first two LIV events have been somewhat subdued, and I did expect better from the twenty-eight-year-old Californian.
There’s no doubt, that DeChambeau has shown a remarkable aptitude for tinkering with his game, so much so, that he has two swings he uses for the Driver, one is all about power and the other he calls a ‘fairway finder’.
How to Bet on Bryson DeChambeau
The interesting factor that I like about Bryson’s chances this week is how strong his form has been in Illinois over the years.
At Olympia Fields, only an hour away by car, he won the US Amateur of 2015.
I like the chances Bryson DeChambeau is overpriced at BetOnline (visit our BetOnline Review) quote of +2500 so add him amongst your best golf bets this week.

Jason Can Be a Tough Nut to Crack
Jason Kokrak played sneaky good golf on his LIV debut in Boston, a couple of weeks ago.
In recent years, after a golfing lifetime grinding, Kokrak has learnt how to win, with a slew of PGA Tour wins before joining LIV Golf.
Using Olympia Fields form down the road is a little dangerous but still, we know players’ have fond memories of travelling back to Illinois and Jason Kokrak is one of those players as a 6th place finish at the BMW Championship of 2020 illustrates.
How to Bet on Jason Kokrak
Remember Kokrak has won three PGA Tour titles in his last forty-eight events, and we are getting +3300 this week at BetOnline for the LIV Rich Harvest Farms event.
Such is Kokrak’s consistency, add him in a top 10 finish also.

One of the Brightest Young Talents in World Golf
Twenty-four-year-old Sadom Kaewkanjana looks like one of the brightest young talents in world golf.
The young Thai is very much in the embryonic stage of his fledgling career but an 11th place finish at the British Open announced him on the world stage.
His LIV Golf performances have been up and down but last time in the Portland event he held a share of the lead with nine holes to play.
That experience should have proved to himself, that he is good enough to win in the big league of LIV golf so why not put that experience to good use almost immediately here in Chicago.
How to Bet on Sadom Kaewkanjana
At the attractive price of +15000, there is not too much downside to supporting this talented young Thai player who has won six events in his short career back home in Asia.
What I suggest is, a modest stake on the generous long shot win price of +15000 at top-rated sportsbooks while adding a stake on a top 10 finish in the LIV Rich Harvest Farms event.
