Players make the trek across the pond this week for the Genesis Scottish Open, co-sanctioned by both the DP World Tour and the PGA Tour. Held at the Renaissance Club, it’s a great annual transition to the kind of links golf the field can expect at the following week’s Open Championship. The Renaissance Club favors elite ball-striking, with specific reward given to elite driving, as we’ve seen when players like Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele used their off-the-tee game to dominate the course. When considering players to pick this week for either betting or daily fantasy, make sure you take into consideration their history of success on links courses, as well as their travel schedule. Players who head straight over from the John Deere may be jet-lagged, which could mean a slow start.

Let’s instead dig into three players who are rested and ready to contend this week:

Ludvig Åberg Top 20 -120

Åberg has finished inside the top 20 in 17 of his last 22 events, yet he is only -120 this week? This seems almost too good to be true. Ludvig’s game is built on elite driving, which is the skill most rewarded at the Renaissance Club (just ask Rory). Let’s not overthink things: lock in Åberg for a top-20 finish at -120.

Tommy Fleetwood Top 20 -105

It would be fitting if Fleetwood won his first PGA Tour event in Europe. The Renaissance Club fits his game perfectly as a ball-striker’s paradise that rewards his brand of patient aggression on approach shots. He has finished T-26 or better in all four appearances here, including three top-six finishes. Fleetwood comes into this event in great form with top-26 finishes in his last six events. In a field where we will see many players struggle with links conditions, it makes sense to back a more obvious choice like Fleetwood.

Tom Kim Top 20 +140

We are getting a slightly higher price than expected here after Kim missed the cut in Detroit two weeks ago. I can forgive that performance, though, as that was his ninth event in a row and directly followed his narrow playoff loss at the Travelers. He comes to Scotland after a week off, ready to contend on a course where he finished sixth and third in the last two years. Tom’s game has been trending upward over the last few months. Many people have the preconceived notion that Kim is not an elite driver of the ball. However, he has gained some distance off the tee while also being unbelievably accurate, such that he ranks top 10 in strokes gained off the tee over the last few months. If he carries that elite driving across the pond, we could see another high finish from Kim.
