The PGA Tour is heading into uncharted territory this week, and the world No. 1 is leading the way.
Dustin Johnson begins the week as a betting favorite for the inaugural Palmetto Championship, listed at +800 according to oddsmakers at PointsBet Sportsbook. Johnson will be teeing it up in his home state at Congaree Golf Club, about 45 minutes north of Savannah, which is hosting a Tour event for the first time.
The tournament was created by Tour officials in response to the cancellation of the RBC Canadian Open, which was scrubbed for a second straight year because of COVID-19 complications. The relatively new layout is a brawny par-71 and will be on display for public consumption for the first time this week.
Close behind Johnson is another multiple major winner, Brooks Koepka. Koepka grabbed headlines last week without even playing, as his feud with Bryson DeChambeau continued via social media, and he's listed at +900 as he looks to follow up a PGA Championship runner-up with his second win of the year.
Englishmen Tyrrell Hatton and Matthew Fitzpatrick are next on the list, followed by former Tour winner Sungjae Im. Here's a look at some of the notable betting odds this week at Congaree, with the U.S. Open now just a week away:
