If you thought the field for the John Deere Classic was thin, you ain't seen nothin' yet. With golf's best throwing down at the Scottish Open, the Barbasol Championship features a collection of lesser-known golfers looking to make a name for themselves and climb the FedEx Cup Standings.
With a purse of $3.7 million, the stakes remain high for those taking the field in Kentucky.
Here are the early odds to win the 2022 Barbasol Championship at Keene Trace Golf Club.

Notes on the Field
Seamus Power won his first PGA Tour win at the 2021 edition of the Barbasol Championship while last week's winner J.T. Poston was in a position to win it until late on Sunday. Neither is present this time around. No OWGR Top-100 golfers are in action and only a handful within the Top 100 on the FedEx Cup Tour standings are present. Also at stake, the winner gets free passage to the field at The Open Championship at St. Andrews.
Favorites to win the Barbasol Championship
Kevin Streelman (+2,000)
Streelman has been in action in recent tournaments but only has one Top-10 finish under his belt this year, a T7 at the Valspar Championship in mid-March. That was part of a relatively strong stretch where he finished within the Top 22 in four of five events.
The 43-year-old has two career PGA Tour victories, with his last coming in 2014. Streelman has a fantastic opportunity to get back into the winner's circle.
While he's technically the favorite, bookmakers aren't giving him much of an edge as the field is wide open.
Christopher Gotterup (+2,200)
Gotterup's story was one of the absolute best from the John Deere Classic over the weekend. He wrote a letter to the tournament's director earlier in the year in an attempt to receive an exemption for the event. He got his exemption and made the most of it, breaking 70 in all four rounds to finish T4 in just his fifth PGA Tour event.
Of those tournaments, Gotterup has only missed the cut on one occasion. He will likely play in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals and could be a fixture on the PGA Tour going forward after winning the Haskins Award and Jack Nicklaus Award as the best college golfer in the nation this year.
Adam Svensson & Mark Hubbard (+2,500)
Svensson is one of the few players in the field who ranks in the Top 100 on the FedEx Cup Tour standings. The 28-year-old hasn't lit it up this year, but after a string of five missed cuts in six events, he's reached the weekend in six straight tournaments — though he hasn't finished higher than 21st in any of those.
Similarly, Hubbard has consistently made cuts of late — seven of eight events dating back to the Zurich Classic in late April — but has only two Top-20 finishes in that entire run, though one was a T13 at last week's John Deere Classic. A victory in Kentucky would mark the first PGA Tour win for the 33-year-old Denver native nicknamed "Homeless Hubbs."
Notable long-shots for the Barbasol Championship
Patrick Flavin (+10,000)
While Gotterup has received an understandable amount of hype both due to his collegiate success and his strong showings in limited action on the PGA Tour, Flavin is riding a similar wave. Unlike Gotterup, Flavin struggled to make cuts before last weekend's John Deere Classic where he shot -14 and finished tied for 10th.
Aaron Baddeley (+14,000)
Baddeley is one of a few former winners at the Barbasol Championship to be in this weekend's field. In fact, his last win on the PGA Tour came at the 2016 edition in a playoff victory over Kim Si-woo. Baddeley hasn't played much on the PGA Tour this year — appearing more frequently on the Korn Ferry Tour — but with such a slim field he could be a diamond in the rough.
