Shriners Hospitals for Children Open – betting tips 26

The PGA Tour heads to the desert for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and as you’d expect for one of the driest places on earth, there is plenty of room off the tee. Rod Pampling was a shock winner twelve months ago and it’s always worth chancing your arm in Vegas.  Trey Mullinax struggled last season, losing his playing rights but he’s got a few opportunities early in the wraparound schedule in these weaker fields and he needs to make the most of them. Last year he finished T36 but threatened to finish higher because TPC Summerlin dplays to his strengths. Like 2015 winner Smylie Kaufman he is a winner on […]

WGC HSBC Champions – Betting Tips 30

The WGC HSBC Champions has been won by PGA Tour members for the past four seasons but of all the WGC events this is one that favours the Europeans the most. It’s position in the calendar and entry requirement means it forms part of the climax to the European Tour season whilst for the PGA Tour it’s the first big event of a new season.  The Europeans therefore have their competitive juices flowing and there’s plenty of good golf being played.

With the HSBC Champions event scooping up the best players the Sanderson Farms Championship has a very Tour feel to it. Cody Gribble is back to defend the title he won in his rookie season and i’m following a similair path but backing young unexposed talent.  Corey Conners led the Tour for GIRs last season and his ball-striking (ranked second) make him well equipped for the tougher challenges on the PGA Tour. The 25-year-old enjoyed a strong amateur career, he finished second in the 2014 US Amateur and played in the following year’s 2015 Masters. There have been a smattering of PGA Tour starts in his young career which […]

CJ Cup – Betting Tip 15

The CJ Cup is a new name on the roster as the PGA Tour follows the European Tour in trying to expand into the Asian market. Good news for the money men in golf not quite so interesting for those who bet on it. A limited field, on a new course, at the start of a new season makes it a difficult tournament to evaluate. For my bet I want a player who has something to prove and Ollie Schniederjans will be desperate to get a win under his belt sooner rather than later. The 24-year-old enjoyed a really productive rookie season on the PGA Tour, finishing 60th on the […]
