Golf is back!

The Sentry Tournament of Champions teed off on Thursday to signal the beginning of the PGA Tour's 2022 calendar year. Two rounds are in the books, and two rounds remain as we prepare for Saturday's action. Now is the perfect time to place some live bets, if you haven't already.

Cameron Smith leads the event at 17-under par, and there's a tie for second place between Jon Rahm and Daniel Berger, both at 14-under par.

Here are the top 10 live odds at WynnBET to win the tournament ahead of Round 3.

Live Bets to Make for the Sentry Tournament of Champions

Daniel Berger +650

Two golfers are tied in second place, but one of them presents much better value at this point of the tournament. I jumped on Rahm pre-tournament at +850, so I'm going to sprinkle some on Daniel Berger at +650 now and hope for a Cameron Smith collapse.

Despite being 14-under, Berger is losing 1.35 strokes with his putting. If he can sharpen up his play on the greens and maintain his strong approach play, he could make a big push on the weekend.

Hideki Matsuyama +2000

Hideki Matsuyama sits five off the lead at 12-under, and while that seems like a lot, it can be made up in a hurry and there's still two more rounds to go. Matsuyama played some of his best golf of his career in 2021, and he's showing early signs that he could be in for an even bigger 2022.

He's gaining 1.19 strokes on the green, which is rare for the Japanese golfer. Meanwhile, his off-the-tee play, which is usually the strongest part of his game, has been his weakest through the first two rounds, losing 0.32 strokes. If he can improve his driving, he'll be in the mix down the stretch on Sunday.

Xander Schauffele +3300

Xander Schauffele is seven strokes off the lead at 10-under par, but if anyone can make up that deficit, it's Schauffele. Few golfers have had as much success as this event as Schauffele has in recent years, so I expect that to continue over the weekend.

He's losing 1.95 strokes in his approach game, which is extremely uncharacteristic for the Olympic gold medalist. If he can dial in his irons, he's going to close the gap in a hurry.
