Brutal weather has made this year's edition of The Players Championship an unconventional one to say the least.

Not only has the tournament been extended to Monday, but as of writing this article, the fourth and final round has still yet to begin. With that in mind, there are still plenty of betting opportunities for those of us who want to get in on the action.

Anirban Lahiri (-9) currently holds a one stroke lead over Sam Burns and Sebastian Munoz.

Here are 3 golfers you should consider betting on to make a come back and win the 2022 Players Championship.

Live Bets to Place for The Players Championship

  • Shane Lowry
  • Kevin Kisner
  • Cameron Smith

Shane Lowry

The best betting value you'll find on the board before the final round, will be the group that sits at 6-under par. They'll be approximately three strokes back from the lead, depending on how the third round finishes, but all three of these players have what it takes to make a run.

Lowry has been gaining strokes in every aspect of his game, and he's already scored an ace on the famous 17th island green. There's a lot of momentum working on favor of the Irishman, who finished in second place at the Honda Classic a few weeks ago. If he can catch fire with his putter in the final round, he could make a charge.

Kevin Kisner

Kevin Kisner was one of my dark horse bets to win this weekend at 150/1, and he's still in the mix to get it done. He's been fantastic around the green so far, leading the field in strokes gained in that area. He's struggled a bit with his irons at times this tournament, but if he a can dial those ins, he'll be in contention later this day.

It's also helping that he's T2 in final round scoring average this season.

Cameron Smith

If you think it's going to be the best putter that closes out the win at TPC Sawgrass, then bet on Cameron Smith. He's third in the field this week in strokes gained: putting, gaining +2.33 strokes on the field. He's struggled off the tee, losing 1.2 strokes, but if he can straighten out that driver, he's going keep sinking putts.
