Golf Betting Tips

Verizon Heritage

This Masters was the best for years, the set up was spot on resulting in plenty of birdies and a very exciting tournament. It was so good that losing 8.25 pts did not feel that bad. (Brings yearly total to -27.75pts). Woods contended for a long time, but, like last years USPGA he became a little 'desperate' and tried to force the win, he lost control of his emotions and lost control of the tournament. Mickelson was awesome pulling off some immense shots under pressure. Amongst the other selections Kuchar had a solid tournament after getting a very difficult draw alongside Woods, Crane played well but with too many mistakes finishing midway down the leaderboard, Duval putted terrible and MC'd, Dustin Johnson also had a solid event without milking the par 5's as he did last year. Manassero did land low teen at the Masters and concluded his amateur career with low Am at the Masters, seriously impressive at 16! Also Ryan Moore holed in 1 at 16 giving us back 3.75 points.

This week is the Verizon Heritage at Harbour Town. A course I won on 2 years ago..... in the final round on the front nine I had 6 birdies and 3 bogeys, solid! The course is one of the shortest on tour and has tiny greens, the forecast is set fair so accurate, precise players will do well and the emphasis may be taken slightly off hot putters.

I am going to side with Kuchar once again. He has a pair of top 10's at Harbour Town in '08 and '05. He is due a win and played well with Woods last week at the Masters. He is 27th in greens in regulation and 12th in putting. His game is perfect for this course and at 25/1, Kuchar once again gets the nod.

K.J Choi also played with Woods last week and for a long time on Sunday looked the most likely winner, playing very solid golf as he has done all year and putting beautifully. He is 8th in greens in reg and 'the tank' should go well here in his first start at Harbour Town since 2001.... he could well be wearing the shocking, checkered jacket come Sunday ( I wore Pete Dye's jacket at the presentation a couple of years ago, he is the course designer here) Choi is short at 20/1 but looks too good to ignore.

Robert Allenby finished T45th at The Masters, he never seems to play well there and also has a suspect record in this event but his game has never been in better shape. He is ranked 1 in all-around ranking and 14th in ball striking. I like him at 33/1.

D.J Trahan is hard to ignore. He is having a solid 2010 and sits 7th in ball striking and 4th in scoring average. Again he has a poor record in this event but in the form he is in he is worth a go at 33/1.

The Picks:

2 pt win K.J Choi 20/1
2 pts ew Matt Kuchar 25/1
1 pt ew Robert Allenby 33/1
1 pt ew D.J Trahan 33/1
