PGA stat leaders refer to the players who are at the top of different statistical categories on the PGA TOUR. These can help with finding value in outright winner bets, head-to-head bets, and over/under markets, as knowing who is leading the field for certain metrics is vital for finding the right golfer(s) to bet on.
For example Sahith Theegala (26), Si Woo Kim (22), Maverick McNealy (22), Denny McCarthy (22), and Brain Harman (21) led the field in made cuts during the 2021-22 PGA TOUR season, which would be helpful information when attempting to identify golfers likely to make the cut during any given tournament.
Looking at lengthier courses, driving distance is another smart stat to consider once you cross reference the course with a player who plays it and drives the ball well. During the 2021-22 season, Cameron Champ (321.40 yards), Rory McIlroy (321.30), Cameron Young (319.30), Wyndham Clark (319.00), and John Rahm (318.90) led the PGA TOUR in driving distance and would be a good crop of players to study in more depth when wagering on a long course.
Furthermore, finding the players with correct form and who are riding a hot streak is vital information if you are looking to bet on a certain player(s) to make the top 10 at a tournament. During the 2021-22 season, Patrick Cantlay (12), Scottie Scheffler (11), Rory McIlroy (10), Justin Thomas (10), and Matt Fitzpatrick (10) led the field in top10 finishes. Watching the form of these players would be a good place to start if you are looking to wager on certain golfers to finish within the top 10 of a given tournament.
