Waste Management Phoenix Open – betting tips 35

The wind wreaked havoc at Torrey Pines and the PGA Tour should brace itself for another wild one courtesy of the 500,000 fans expected at the Phoenix Open. Apart from the raucous atmosphere, this is a relatively straightforward event to judge. The winning score is around the 18-under mark and the test at TPC Scottsdale is tee-to-green. Brooks Koepka bludgeoned his way to victory last year and big hitters have prospered in recent editions. JB Holmes earned us a small win at the Farmers Insurance Open and it makes sense to reinvest the money at a tournament he has won twice before. Holmes falls into the ‘power-hitter’ category but he is by no means […]

Dubai Desert Classic – Betting Tips 54

The Desert Swing concludes this week with the Dubai Desert Classic and we should be in for a treat. Rory McIlroy is back to defend his title but with no Jordan Spieth in the field he is half the price he was in Abu Dhabi. McIlroy is a two-time winner of this event and hasn’t finished outside the top-10 in his last six visits but his dominance isn’t as marked as on the much longer Earth Course used for the DP World Tour Championship.

Qatar Masters Betting Tips 25

The average winning score over the past five seasons has been 14-under but strong winds could see the scores rise. Being able to adjust your ball-flight is an advantage in the wind but more than anything you have to be hitting it well. When it comes to recent form there aren’t many better than Branden Grace. In his last five starts, he’s finished 3-T8-T4-T4-T5 and even when a bit rusty […]

Farmers Insurance Open – betting tips 51

The last three tournaments on the PGA Tour have been won with scores of -30, -20 and -25 but this week we get a proper test at the Farmers Insurance Open. Torrey Pines is the usual host with the North and South Course in rotation before the South takes over for the weekend. Measuring 7,698 yards the South Course was the longest non-major venue and second most difficult par-72 on tour last season. Driving the ball long and relatively straight is the main pre-requisite in an event where the cream usually rises to the top. Tiger Woods won this event seven times and although he is a special case, Jason Day […]
