RSM Classic – betting tips 64

JT Poston had a tricky rookie season on the PGA Tour, missing out on a card after finishing 132nd on the FedEx Cup but high enough to earn status for these weaker Fall events.  The 24-year-old is making the most of his opportunities. He finished T4 at the Shriners Open and followed it up with another good performance in the OHL Classic. Still searching for his first professional win, this is a player who makes the most of his starts.

Turkish Open – betting tips 28

The Turkish Airlines Open returns to Carya Golf Resort and there is a strong field battling for a big pot.

The Frenchman didn’t make enough putts and that is the worry with his game but […]
