Fedex St. Jude Classic 2015 Golf Betting Preview

Weekly Betting preview for the PGA Tour  It has to be said that last week was a little annoying. All three of my picks had solid weeks and then Billy Horschel made a move on Sunday and after 71 holes was sitting in the top five. This would have made for a second consecutive profitable week, but he promptly bogeyed the 72nd and final hole and moved out of the top five and that was that. Overall it means that…

Memorial Tournament Golf Betting Preview

Weekly Betting preview for the PGA Tour  It’s off to Jack’s place this week for the Memorial tournament, where a high quality field will take to the fairways of Muirfield village. This tournament doesn’t quite have the same long history as some of the other tour events, but a look at previous winners shows how highly it is regarded – Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Tom Watson and Tiger Woods having won it 11 times between them since it began in…

AT + T Byron Nelson Championship Golf Betting Preview

Weekly Betting preview for the PGA Tour I’ll start this week with a question. Does Jordan Spieth ever have a rest? The guy just doesn’t stop playing. His schedule last year was busy, but this year it seems that he is playing more than ever. After a Major victory, I though he would calm it down a little, but this week will mark his 5th tournament in seven weeks since the Masters, and his 14th start in the last 18…

Crowne Plaza International Golf Betting Preview

Weekly Betting preview for the PGA Tour So there I was in the middle of an amazing run – Jordan Spieth had just put on his green Jacket (with some difficulty I might add) and the tips were flying in. But it has to be said that it’s been pretty poor since then, with 5 weeks without a pick up. I’ve had plenty of solid performances and plenty of good rounds, but none of my players have managed to put…

Wells Fargo Championship Golf Betting Preview

Weekly Betting preview for the PGA Tour After a few weeks of high intense action which started with the Masters and ended with the Players Championship, the tour has a few weeks of relative calm as we slowly build up to the U.S. Open in five weeks time. The Players Championship was compulsive viewing (well, from Sunday afternoon anyway) where Rickie Fowler managed to pull a timely monkey off his back with his win last week by winning the fifth…

Players Championship Golf Betting Preview

Weekly Betting preview for the PGA Tour This week sees the tour return to TPC Sawgrass for the Players Championship, perhaps the most enjoyable tournament of the year for me. Much of this is due to the iconic island green at the 17th – this hole alongside the tough 18th making for one of the toughest and most intriguing finales in golf. Personally I knew the pressures of this course first hand long before watching the professionals take it on….

WGC MatchPlay – The Knockout Stage

So the group stages are over and now we move into the nitty gritty of the action as the knockout stages take place. The last 16 line up looks a very mixed one, with a great variety of experience, youth and talent. Let’s start by looking at how the tips are going so far this week. I picked three players and fortunately two of them are still battling away, which didn’t look likely after day one when only one of…

WGC Cadillac MatchPlay Betting Preview

Weekly Betting preview for the PGA Tour So, it’s a very different event this week as the tour moves to San Francisco for the WGC Cadillac MatchPlay event. I’ve always been a fan of the format personally and would love to see more of it all year round, but considering that not so many years ago we didn’t have this event, I cannot complain. It’s an interesting change of format this year, with the straight knockout the whole way through…

Zurich Classic Day Two

Day two at the Zurich Classic was slightly rain shortened, with some of the field having to come out early Saturday morning to complete their second rounds, some players having to play their entire back nine still. From a betting point of view, yesterday was a little strange. All three of my selections were in decent shape after day one and all three played in under par today, but it feels like the chances have dwindled a little. To be…

Zurich Classic Day One

So you’ve studied the field and got a good idea who you think might be value. Then you go away and have a think and narrow this selection down further, before finally deciding on your bets. You place your bets and eagerly wait for the tournament to start. Then by Thursday afternoon, it’s all over because your three selections are 47 over par between them on the front nine. Well, that was the story of last week (with some added…
