Golf Betting Tips

Lyoness Open and St. Jude Classic

Well, finally we caught a winner. Not a huge price but once again Kuchar showed an awful lot of class in winning the Memorial. I think any doubts about him being a closer are quickly being quashed and he is perhaps the most solid, reliable competitor out there right now. Merion next week is starting to look more of a destiny than an outside chance. We won 31 points on the week to move us back to 113.45 points behind for the year.

This week there are two poor events. In the States the St. Jude at TPC Southwind in Memphis and in Europe The Lyoness Open at Diamond Club near Vienna.

It’s a shame. I had ages to study these events. 6 hours in a car on the way to France and 9 hours in a plane on the way to Guadeloupe and I still can’t find a decent bet. Both fields are so weak that it is easy to be drawn into backing some average players at the top of the market at very short prices. Wiesberger in Austria has the recent form and certainly the course form to make him a worthy favourite, but 7/1 is very short. Larrazabal is still due but 14/1 is short about a guy who seems to find winning harder and harder. Jimenez has shown he has retained his form after breaking his leg but 20/1 is poor. The only one at a price who makes any sort of sense is Simon Wakefield. You have to go back to March to find his last top 20 but he has played here once and finished 2nd. Now this is certainly more of a punt than an investment but at 100/1 he gives us an interest to pass the time before the US Open.

The St Jude looks similar. I obviously like Snedeker and back closer to home I fancy him to win but with his recent form I am not a player at 14/1. He seems to be regressing week on week from his hot start to the year. Allenby has awesome course form but surely the way he has played over the last year means he is pretty much a non runner. Karlsson is another with good course form and although he has shown glimpses recently is a laughable price at 40/1.

This event looks as though greens in regulation guys should do well. I am going to make two small plays. One on Brendon De Jonge at 50/1and one on Ken Duke at 110/1. Two solid tee to green guys who can easily get in the mix with a half decent putting week. Duke has decent course form here including a 7th last year.

Just really three picks for an interest. Lets see how they go.

0.5 pts each way Simon Wakefield @ 100/1

My advice comes with a point system to rate the strength of a tip. A 1 point bet means placing your usual stake, so if you would consider your normal bet being £10 then a point signifies £10.
