Barracuda Championship – betting tips 5

With the world’s top golfers spread amongst the French Open and the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, the Barracuda Championship has a second-rate feel to it. However, there is no room for snobbishness when it comes to punting and the weaker field means we can bag a big price winner.   The Barracuda Championship is the only tournament on the schedule that uses a modified stableford scoring system, where eagles (5 points) and birdies (2 points) are disproportionally rewarded compared to pars (0 points) and bogeys (-1 point). It goes without saying that eagles and birdies are crucial and that is where to start our research. Kyle Reifers made an incredible five eagles last […]

French Open – betting tips 41

The centenary of the French Open promises to be a special affair. A bolstered prize fund plus enhanced Ryder Cup points means a strong field has assembled in the suburbs of Paris. Le Golf National is a testing par-71 course that usually plays firm and fast, akin to a British links.

Casey is inside the top-30 in the world rankings and after a couple of quiet months he could be ready to explode back onto the scene. It wasn’t that long ago that Casey finished fourth at the Masters and tee-to-green he is up there […]

Quicken Loans National – betting tips 24

The Quicken Loans National returns to Congressional after a brief hiatus and a tough challenge awaits those teeing it. Coming on the back of such a brutal test at Oakmont, missing the cut in Pittsburgh might be no bad thing. Justin Rose won this event at Congressional in 2014 with a score of 4-under and it is unlikely the winner will get into double-digits under par. The primary challenge this week is tee-to-green and of the last five winners, none were ranked lower than 12th on tour for strokes gained tee-to-green. That is where I started compiling my shortlist and Kevin Chappell leaps off the table. Ranked 10th in strokes […]
