Return of the Mac at the BMW Championship

Aug 28, 2020

It seems every tournament this year we've seen one of the many young Canadians who've earned their PGA tour card making a run up the leaderboard in the early goings. Connors, Hadwin, Taylor, Sloan. We've seen them all performing well in 2020.

This week it's MacKenzie Hughes who will tee off this Friday morning in the BMW Championship starting in 3rd place, just 2 strokes back at 1-under par.

In March, Hughes finished runner up in the Honda Classic. What is it about golf tournaments sponsored by car companies that rev him up? Will he see that checkered flag wave for him, along with the Maple Leaf, come Sunday afternoon?  

What kind of bets are available for MacKenzie Hughes going into the weekend at the BMW Championship? A quick glance at will give us the answer to our weekend's fun.

First off, let's see what he's offered at to win outright. All year the Canadians, even propped up high on the leaderboard after a starting Thursday round, have consistently offered great value. Hughes is a whooping 50-1 if you get on him this morning. 51.00 listed, which includes your betting unit, so it's $50 earned for every $1 wagered should Hughes race across the BMW finish line first come Sunday afternoon.

Don't feel confident enough to take the Mac to win it all? Well, you can bet him in a 3-ball, which is simply a wager for him to perform better than the other two players he's against JUST TODAY that the oddsmakers have paired him up against.  A Friday 3-ball is always a fun one-day sweat. Triple your wager if you select this bet and Mackenzie beats Cantlay and Byeoung-Hun An in today's round.

If one or both of those opponents in the 3-ball scare you today, then you can take Hughes straight up against Mark Hubbard. That's right, just Hubbard. If you make this bet it's a 70% return for a one-day gamble. Not a bad return to bolster up the account for all the NHL action this weekend.

One of the most iconic cars BMW ever produced was the gorgeous BMW M1. Maybe this weekend our 'M' will finish '1'.
