The long-awaited Myrtle Beach Classic makes its debut this week, as a brand-new PGA Tour event gets underway.

For the first time, the circuit will host a professional tournament in the ‘golf capital of the world’, with Myrtle Beach in South Carolina going under the spotlight.

Held at Dunes Golf and Beach Club, the event is the third of five opposite-field events on the PGA Tour in 2024 but still has some star power in the lineup.

Billy Horschel and Erik van Rooyen represent recent winners in the field, while veteran Korn Ferry Tour pro Matt Atkins is an interesting contender.

The American will tee it up in his home state after winning ‘The Q at Myrtle Beach’. It was a 16-player qualifier that saw several YouTubers in with a chance of playing on the PGA Tour.

He beat George Bryan in the play-off, but Bryan will join Atkins in the field after he was handed a sponsors invite.

It might have to contest the signature purse at the Wells Fargo Championship, but the Myrtle Beach Classic still has plenty on the line.

With a $4 million total fund and 300 FedEx Cup points going to the winner, here is everything you need to know about the Myrtle Beach Classic.

The bunkered Bet

Daniel Berger 28/1

The American is steadily playing his way into form after a two-year hiatus through injury and on past form is the class act in the field. The 31-year-old is a four-time winner on tour and last week’s T13 at the CJ Cup Byron Nelson saw him gain strokes across the board.

Odds will appear in due course. Please gamble responsibly.
