Although 2015 was a long time ago, he has been successful following throughout his entire career. Day finished in the top five in both events following PGA Tour wins in 2018.

Xander Schauffele Top 40 Finish at -300
Betting the heavily favored Scottie Scheffler and Jon Rahm at -600 won’t bring as much value as Xander Schauffele for half the price. Schauffele’s -300 odds to finish in the top 40 are desirable considering he hasn’t finished outside of the top 40 all season.
Scottie Scheffler has more finishes outside of the top 40 than Xander Schauffele. Xander also has the same number of finishes outside of the top 30 as Jon Rahm, with both players doing so twice in 2023.
Xander Schauffele’s -300 odds on golf gambling sites have great value considering how he matches up against the top two ranked golfers in the world.
