Dean & Deluca Invitational – betting tips 24

The Dean & Deluca Invitational is the new name for the Crowne Plaza Invitational but more importantly the venue hasn’t changed, it’s still held at Colonial. One of the most enduring courses on the PGA Tour, Colonial takes time to master. There has only been one first time winner in the last 14 years and on average it takes eight starts before you can think about winning. Experience is key and Brandt Snedeker stands out on that front. He is 5/5 at Colonial over the years and has finished 29-59-16-45-2. The 35-year-old would normally be considered amongst the favourites at an event like this but his recent form is underwhelming.

BMW PGA Championship – betting tips 23

The BMW PGA Championship may no longer be the European Tour’s ‘flagship’ event but it is an important tournament that has produced numerous high quality winners. The West Course at Wentworth has undergone several renovations in recent years (with another one to come) but the test has largely remained around the short game. At 7,308 yards it isn’t overly long but you have to drive it well and put the ball in the right spots. Recent winners like Luke Donald and Matteo Manassero highlight that length isn’t a priority but a good touch on and around the greens is a must. Ben An showcased his all-round skills with a stunning […]

Irish Open – betting tips 29

The Irish Open kicks off a big fortnight on the European Tour with the BMW PGA to follow and after a run of low-grade events, we have something to sink our teeth into. A high quality field has assembled at the K Club but the value lies away from the big names. Rory McIlroy dominates the betting but as host, he will have plenty of distractions and his price is plenty short enough. With scattered showers forecast in County Kildare this week, the course could play soft and that plays to the strengths of Alexander Levy. The Frenchman is at his best when firing at pins as he did on the […]

AT&T Byron Nelson – betting tips 34

TPC Four Seasons hosts the Byron Nelson and after last year’s rain affected tournament the weather again holds the key. The scale of last year’s flooding is unlikely but thunderstorms and rain are forecast in the lead up the tournament so expect the course to play soft. The par-70 measures a respectable 7,166 yards but if the fairways are soft it could favour the bigger hitters. Twelve months ago Brooks Koepka led the field in GIRs at TPC Four Seasons and if the putter behaves he should improve on his T16 finish. The course sets up well for the 26-year-old. He can overpower it with his length (ranked 11th in […]
