Weekly Golf Preview with 32Red

We run through the main golf tournaments this week – the Saudi International and the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

This includes facts, odds and picks from our own golfing professional Cliff Jackson with odds from 32Red.


  • Royal Greens Golf and Country Club, Saudi Arabia
  • First staged in 2019
  • Defending Champion: Dustin Johnson

OVERVIEW: The Saudi International was introduced in 2019 as the first and only European Tour event in Saudi Arabia, and it has proven popular pulling together a brilliant field including Dustin Johnson – who won the inaugural tournament.

Johnson is back in Saudi to defend his title, and he is favourite to take the win – but the world’s elite are competing with Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed and Open champion Shane Lowry all competing.


  • TPC Scottsdale, Arizona
  • First staged in 1932
  • Defending Champion: Rickie Fowler

OVERVIEW: The Phoenix Open is the most well attended golfing event in the world, it encourages a big loud crowd, including the par 3 16th hole which is known as the Coliseum as it is surrounded by stands containing 20,000 people – who roar every stroke.

Rickie Fowler defends the title, but there is big competition from a glittering field containing the likes of Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas and Bubba Watson to name but three of a host of big names.

Our resident golf expert is Cliff Jackson. Cliff is a leading youth coach and PGA professional at the famed Seaton Carew Links – one of the oldest courses in the world.

Truly one of the best weeks in golf outside a Major weekend, with two brilliant tournaments.

In Saudi Arabia, the International has attracted a wonderful field yet again but I am not sure Dustin Johnson defends his crown – I am going for Brooks Koepka to win and a top-five finish for Sergio Garcia.

In Phoenix, and what a great event – the way golf should be moving towards – and I do think Rickie Fowler will put up a real defence and he has to finish top-ten and I think that Bubba Watson might do something too.

Cliff’s Picks…
Brooks Koepka @11/1 to win the Saudi International
Sergio Garcia @5/1 to finish top-five at the Saudi International

Bubba Watson @28/1 to win the Phoenix Open Open
Rickie Fowler @12/1 to win the Phoenix Open
