Last week’s CJ Cup Championship was one stroke away from going exactly as our BeerLife Sports experts said last week. BeerLIfe Sports’ Bradley Gibbs was calling for Collin Morikawa as a must-have in PGA Daily Fantasy lineups. Moreover, Dean McHugh was backing eventual winner Rory Mcllroy to outlast Xander Schaufelle in their matchup. Unfortunately, Collin Morikawa’s comeback bid fell one stroke short and Rory Mcllroy took home the glory on Sunday.
This week, the PGA Tour travels to Japan for the first time in two years. The Zozo Championship will feature some of the greatest golfers in the world. Interestingly, there is no cut in this tournament so all golfers will move on making an aggressive strategy crucial.

How To Bet The Zozo Championship — What The Experts Are Saying
Pat Mayo is going back to the well once again. He is backing Collin Morikawa for the second straight week. He was red hot on Sunday so I see why he is doing it. However, this is a Japanese course so I see some value in Steve Hennessey’s pick of Hideki Matsuyama to win at home.
Furthermore, Dean McHugh is on the big underdog Emiliano Grillo to win the tournament at +4500. He is a must-have in the fantasy golf side as he should be worth the hefty price tag of $9,100 on DraftKings. Moreover, Dean McHugh has a juicy hole-in-one prop for Xander Schaufeele. He also is backing Collin Morikawa to lead after round one after he finished the CJ Cup red hot.
