All four 2021 golf majors are in the books, and many of the world's top players are now seeking Olympic golf glory in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics men's competition. Tokyo 2020's individual tournament tees off on Wednesday, July 29 at Kasumigaseki Country Club in Saitama, Japan. Four Americans, including newly-minted Open Championship winner Collin Morikawa, will compete with a bevy of international stars. The Olympic golf field includes Spain's Jon Rahm, the 2021 U.S. Open winner, and local hero and reigning Masters champ Hideki Matsutama.
Rahm is the 5-1 favorite to win in William Hill Sportsbook's latest 2020 Tokyo Olympics men's golf odds, followed by Americans Xander Schauffele (10-1) and Morikawa (10-1). Fellow USA stars Justin Thomas (11-1) and Bryson DeChambeau (12-1), along with Ireland's Rory McIlroy (11-1) and Matsuyama (20-1) also highlight the Tokyo 2020 field.

McClure is a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million, and his golf projection model, which simulates each event 10,000 times, has been red-hot with his picks since the PGA Tour resumed last summer. In fact, his best bets based on the model have brought in more than $10,500 since the June restart, bringing in profits at tournament after tournament.
At the 2021 Open Championship, McClure's best bets included Morikawa winning outright even though he was listed as a massive 40-1 long shot. He was also all over Daniel Berger (+220) and Emiliano Grillo (+700) finishing inside the top 20. McClure's best bets netted over $2,200 at the Open Championship.
In addition, McClure's model was all over Rahm's (10-1) first career major championship victory at the 2021 U.S. Open. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend, but the model still projected him as the winner. And at the 2021 Masters, McClure nailed Rahm's (+250) top-five finish in his best bets, as well as Corey Conners' (+550) top-10 showing.

2021 Tokyo Olympics golf futures picks
McClure's picks show no dwindling faith in Morikawa (10-1), who has shined under pressure since turning pro in 2019. The 24-year-old has won two major debuts, at this month's British Open and the PGA Championship last August, so the attention won't distract him.
He is the game's best ball-striker, hitting 72 percent in greens in regulation to lead the PGA Tour. He also is above 69 percent on fairways hit (13th), so he shouldn't find much trouble at Kasumigaseki. Morikawa has finished in the top five in three straight events and is fourth on tour in scoring average (69.673).

On the other hand, DeChambeau could run into plenty of trouble with his big drives, and McClure is fading him at 12-1. The tour's leader in driving distance (320.9 yards) hits the fairway just 53 percent of the time (193rd), so he could be playing from the trees a lot.
His game has been trending in the wrong direction since his Arnold Palmer win in March. He has two top-10 finishes since then, the last one at May's Wells Fargo. He tied for 33rd at the Open Championship, the week after missing the cut at the Rocket Mortgage. McClure has him well outside the top 10.
