The 2022 Barbasol Championship was always going to be played without its defending champion. Seamus Power, who won in a six-hole playoff last year, chose earlier this year to play in the Scottish Open on the same weekend. As it turned out, he ultimately chose to not play in that, either, and took a tie for 30th at last weekend's Irish Open on the European Tour.

That means any of the 2022 Barbasol Championship contenders could be the next to hoist the cup ahead of the the Open Championship. Chris Gotterup is the 20-1 co-favorite in the latest 2022 Barbasol Championship odds on Caesars Sportsbook, and is joined by Kevin Streelman (20-1). Others like Adam Svensson (22-1), Mark Hubbard (22-1) and John Huh (28-1) make up the next group at the front of the field. Before making any 2022 Barbasol Championship picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June of 2020. In fact, the model is up over $10,600 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure's model included J.T. Poston in its best bets to win the 2022 John Deere Classic. That bet hit at +5500, and for the entire tournament, McClure's best bets returned almost $1,100. At the 2022 Masters, McClure's model was all over Scottie Scheffler's first career major championship victory heading into the weekend.

In addition, McClure's best bets included Collin Morikawa winning outright at the 2021 Open Championship, even though he was listed as a massive 40-1 long shot. The model was also all over Jon Rahm's (10-1) first career major championship victory at the 2021 U.S. Open. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend, but the model still projected him as the winner.

This same model has also nailed a whopping eight majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the Barbasol Championship 2022 field is locked, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

Top 2022 Barbasol Championship predictions 

One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2022 Barbasol Championship: Streelman (20-1), a two-time PGA event winner and one of the Vegas co-favorites, stumbles and barely cracks the top five. Streelman won't enter Kentucky with the best of form recently as he has just one top-25 finish over his last eight events. He's missed half of the cuts over this stretch and has failed to shoot par or better in all four rounds of any of the eight tournaments.

Much of Streelman's struggles can be pointed to his iron play as he's struggled immensely with his long game. After ranking 33rd in strokes gained: approach-the-green last season, Streelman has dropped nearly 100 spots to 130th in the statistic this year. Even when he's getting on the green, he's struggling to convert as he ranks 133rd in strokes gained: putting. Considering the 76 bunkers that line Keene Trace Golf Club and the hilly greens that will challenge him, there are far better options than Streelman for your Barbasol Championship 2022 bets.

Another surprise: Hank Lebioda, a 35-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title. Although Lebioda hasn't done much in other tournaments this season to turn heads, he should be in a much better scenario this weekend. Other more familiar names looking for a tune-up ahead of the Open Championship are playing in the Scottish Open, clearing a path for Lebioda at Keene Trace Country Club.

While Lebioda hasn't quite put it all together in events this year, he showed at the end of last season what he's capable of. In three tournaments between June 27 and July 11, he had a top-10 and two top-five finishes. In a field of lesser-known commodities, Lebioda offers tremendous value with his upside.

How to make 2022 Barbasol Championship picks

The model is also targeting three other golfers with odds of 35-1 or longer who will make a strong run at the title. Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it big. You can only see the model's 2022 Barbasol Championship picks here.
