The Kasumigaseki Country Club in Saitama, Japan is one of the best the nation has to offer and overnight it will be showcased in the final round of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics men's golf competition. Soft greens have presented ideal scoring conditions and Xander Schauffele is at the top of a star-studded 2020 Tokyo Olympics men's golf leaderboard through three rounds. Schauffele has a one-shot lead at 14-under par, but the young American will feel plenty of pressure from Japanese superstar Hideki Matsuyama, who is one shot behind, and eight other players are within four strokes of the lead.
Schauffele is the 7-4 favorite in the latest 2020 Tokyo Olympics men's golf odds from William Hill Sportsbook, while Matsuyama is getting 11-4 odds to win gold for the home country. The 2020 Olympic golf odds also list Paul Casey (7-1), Rory McIlroy (10-1) and Carlos Ortiz (12-1) as serious contenders entering the fourth and final round. Before making any final-round 2020 Tokyo Olympics men's golf picks, be sure to see the Tokyo 2020 golf predictions from Mike McClure's proven golf model at SportsLine.
McClure is a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million, and his golf projection model, which simulates each event 10,000 times, has been red-hot with his picks since the PGA Tour resumed last summer. In fact, his best bets based on the model have brought in more than $10,500 since the June restart, bringing in profits at tournament after tournament.
At the 2021 Open Championship, McClure's best bets included Morikawa winning outright even though he was listed as a massive 40-1 long shot. He was also all over Daniel Berger (+220) and Emiliano Grillo (+700) finishing inside the top 20. McClure's best bets netted over $2,200 at the Open Championship.
In addition, McClure's model was all over 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. And at the 2021 Masters, McClure nailed Rahm's (+250) top-five finish in his best bets, as well as Corey Conners' (+550) top-10 showing.
McClure's model has also nailed a whopping seven majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.
Now, McClure is offering his top 2020 Tokyo Olympics golf predictions for the final round so you can cash in huge on sleeper and value picks. He's sharing his final round Olympic golf picks only at SportsLine.
2020 Tokyo Olympics golf picks for Round 4
One of the model's surprising final-round 2020 Olympics golf picks: It isn't high on Sebastian Munoz at 22-1 despite entering the final round just two shots off the lead. He stumbles big time and finishes outside the top 10. The 28-year-old Colombian has a PGA Tour win at the 2019 Sanderson Farms Championship and he's had a couple of strong top-five finishes on the PGA Tour in the last few months.
However, those have been sandwiched between seven missed cuts in his last 11 starts, and he also hasn't been particularly good in the limelight. Munoz has missed the cut in six of his nine career major championship starts and has only finished better than 40th in a major once in his career. He's got the sixth-best odds and is tied for fifth entering the final round, but with two shots to make up and more established players like Schauffele, Matsuyama and Casey to go through, he's a tough play at 22-1.
Another surprise: the model has identified Shane Lowry as a great value at 33-1. He's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The 2019 Open Championship winner and member of Team Ireland fired a ho-hum 70 in the first round of the tournament but has responded with rounds of 65 and 68 to pull to within four shots of the lead entering the fourth and final round.
Lowry will tee off 33 minutes before the final grouping of Schauffele, Matsuyama and Casey, giving him an interesting opportunity to post a number that will force the leaders to sweat. The 34-year-old is already a five-time winner worldwide and he's got five other top-10 finishes in major championships in addition to being Champion Golfer of the Year in 2019, so he's certainly got the game to run the leaders down.
