Safeway Open Golf Betting Tips 2020

Safeway Open Golf Betting Tips 2020 Advised Bets

Joel Dahmen 3 points each way at 25/1 with Betfred – Dahmen has sneakily been playing some consistently good golf of late, including a top-10 at the PGA Championship and then a couple of top-20's at the BMW Championship and WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. A first PGA Tour win awaits the player showing that kind of form.

Jordan Spieth 3 points each way at 30/1 with Betfred – His win drought has to come to an end at some point so why couldn't it be this week right? In fact with most of the world's top-20 absent this seems like the perfect kind of week for Spieth to rejuvenate his form and get back to the golf we know he is capable of.

Brandt Snedeker 3 points each way at 35/1 with Betfred – Snedeker is a player that still has to be respected because every now and again he shows form that has seen him win nine times on the PGA Tour. He clearly likes this event too as the last few times he competed he has finished; T17-T2-T17. In 2018 he lost in a playoff to Kevin Tway.

Kristoffer Ventura 1 point each way at 70/1 with Betfred – My final pick for the week is Norwegian Kristoffer Ventura who has played some excellent golf since the restart. He has only missed one cut in his last eight events and he has had several top-20 finishes in that span too. This is the perfect event for a talented youngster to break through and collect his 1st PGA Tour title and this week that could be Ventura.

About our deals

With the Tour Championship rounding off the season on Monday, less than a week later the new season starts up again with the Safeway Open in California.

Hosted at Silverado Resort and Spa North, the event last year was won by Cameron Champ.

After a solid showing at the FedEx Cup playoffs Si Woo Kim is currently the favourite with odds of 18/1 with Betfred but following him closely is Phil Mickelson who returns to the PGA Tour fresh off his victory on the Champions Tour. He can be found at 20/1 with Betfred.

You then have a wide range of players with slightly different odds between them like two-time winner Brendan Steele (22/1 with Betfred), Shane Lowry (25/1 with Betfred), Harold Varner III (28/1 with Betfred) and then some of the guys I have already mentioned above in my advised bets.

Don’t forget, with Betfred you can get £30 in Free Bets when you bet just £10 and get up to 30 Free Casino Spins

Sam Tremlett
E-commerce Editor

A golfer for most of his life, Sam is a Senior Staff Writer for Golf Monthly. 

Working with golf gear and equipment over the last six years, Sam has quickly built outstanding knowledge and expertise on golf products ranging from drivers, to balls, to shoes. 

He combines this knowledge with a passion for helping golfers get the best gear for them, and as such Sam manages a team of writers that look to deliver the most accurate and informative reviews and buying advice. This is so the reader can find exactly what they are looking for.


Sam now spends most of his time testing and looking after golf gear content for the website, whilst he is also responsible for all content related to golf apparel. 

He also oversees all Tour player content as well so if you need to know what clubs Tiger or Rory has in play, Sam is the person to ask. 

Unfortunately, Sam is not a member of any club at the moment but regularly gets out on the golf course to keep up the facade of having a handicap of five.
