2022 Presidents Cup Preview

If you’re a PGA fan you are probably familiar with the legendary links of Quail Hollow. But there is a Presidents Cup twist. The holes have been renumbered to give the course a different look and feel.

That could affect the rhythm some players have with the venue after playing on it several times over the years for the Wells Fargo Championship. That event was moved this past season so the course could get ready for this event. In addition, plenty of fan gallery areas have been added for more arena style seating areas.

With the odds so lop-sided, the only play is to take a chance on Team Europe at 7/1 odds.

Best Bet: Team Europe (+700)
