Greenbrier Classic, Irish Open and Brunei Open

Last week Lehman was a big disappointment in ideal conditions at Carnoustie in the Seniors Open, he finished 12th but against such a weak field he should have done better. Our old mate Matt Kuchar shot three solid rounds after an average opener to finish tied 4th in Canada. A position he shared with 9 others meaning we barely got our money back. Matt Jones was right up there for 63 holes before imploding on the back 9. Sean O' Hair never got going and missed the cut.

This week at the Greenbrier I am going to stick with Kuchar. Surely a win is just a matter of time for the guy who has 4 top 10's in his last 5 starts and dominates the all round ranking. He starts as third favorite at 20/1, which is a fair price in a weak field.

Ben Crane has been playing some average golf since his win at the start of the year, but I expect the streaky putter to enjoy the low scoring on greens that he will enjoy and I think represents decent value at 35/1.

Nick Watney and favorite Jim Furyk will be popular this week. Long hitting Watney does not really fit the course. It is an accuracy and strategy course which kind of takes his length advantage of play. Furyk has not shown enough form for the price he is but do not be surprised to see him contend in an event not far from where he lives.

I want to be with Matt Jones again, but the way he collapsed on the back 9 last week really puts me off, he was in a great position and came up with nothing so i am going to leave him alone.

Back Charley Hoffman at 55/1. He is in great form, 7th last week and 4th at the John Deere. He was 3rd in birdies and 4th in putting last week, a good sign as scoring is due to be low this week.

In Ireland they play Killarney Country Club. A tight driving course that favours left to right hitters. Ross Fisher has a new caddy this week, Wobbly. He drives the ball better than anyone in the world and a change of caddy could be the spark he needs to get his season into full swing. Take the 20/1.

Elsewhere Simon Griffiths is a huge price at 250/1 to win in Brunei. i have played a lot with Si recently and if he performs to 30% of what he is capable of he will win..... he is a class act and with the weather forecast to stay relatively cool, enjoy this ridiculous value!
