NBO Oman Open – betting tips 24

The Oman Open is a new event for the European Tour and is in effect an upgrade for a tournament that was the season finale on the Challenge Tour. There are several players in the field for whom the Al Mouj Golf course won’t be a new experience and although that might lead them to being over-bet that doesn’t seem to have happened with Marcus Kinhult.  The young Swede finished second in Oman last season but there’s more than just course form to this bet. Kinhult has been on my radar since he led the Nordea Masters in 2015 when still an amateur. He eventually finished T33 but backed it up […]

Genesis Open – betting tips 23

A strong field lines-up for the Genesis Open this week played on the classic layout of Riviera Country Club. It’s easy to make a case for anyone near the top of the market but we saw with Ted Potter last week how players can win from leftfield and i’m going that way again with Sung Kang. The South Korean can be described as streaky at best, he missed nine cuts last year but he also went close on a number of occasions. The 30-year-old put himself in the mix at the Phoenix Open, Houston Open, Texas Open and CIMB Classic in 2017 and although he faltered under pressure at least […]

Pebble Beach Pro-Am – betting tips 30

It feels like sacrilege to be down on a tournament at Pebble Beach but I cannot help but feel underwhelmed by the whole event. The Pro-Am element make the rounds tortuously slow and the coverage is usually diabolical. With the top of the market likely to dominate it becomes hard to must much enthusiasm. Enter Lanto Griffin.  The 29-year-old probably won’t make it to Sunday, sparing us the pain of watching but if he does interest will be heightened by his odds. The world number 340 has enjoyed something of a journeyman career taking in the LatinoAmerica Tour and the Web.com Tour but he won on both and a strike-rate […]

Phoenix Open – betting tips 59

Alex Noren impressed last week at the Farmers Insurance Open and was unfortunate to lose in a playoff. Normally that sort of performance would see him shorten for his next start but the Monday finish has seen his price drift since betting for the Phoenix Open started.  What I like about Noren is that when he gets hot, he stays hot. In the second half of 2016 he won four times in eleven starts and his purple patch in 2017 produced results of 10-1-15-MC-10. Possibly underrated because of his lack of experience on the PGA Tour people forget he finished tenth at the Players and T5 at the Match Play […]
