Golf Betting Tips

The Irish Open and Travellers Championship

Sorry for the delay in getting the tips to you this week and for the lack of a write up. A 4000 mile journey from Pinehurst to Belgium and a practice round are to blame.

Our players last week put in a good runs. Senden was going well at level +1 before making 5 bogies in a row on his back 9 on Friday and he missed the cut. Garica never really got close but Kuchar, Scott and Todd all got in the mix, for the places at least. Kaymer emphatically won and that was an unexpected result for me. I had assumed that one would have to chip occasionally when missing greens, Kaymer didn’t. He just putted, so the fact he ranks so poorly in scrambling (up to 163rd from 178th) did’t matter. He got up and down 19 out of 27 times, ranking 1st on the week . He also stepped up massively in putting. Moving from 157th to 111th in the rankings with just 109 putts. The one chip he did hit on the 10th on Sunday he skulled straight over the back. When things are rougher round the greens he will be hard to back. Remember how often he putted at Sawgrass too? He has problems and practiced all week one handed. It would be easy to get caught up in the hype and start backing him. He drives it good and he is a good front runner, but I think there are still a lot of chinks in the armour.

This week in the States I like, in order, Watson 12/1, Garcia 22/1, Dustin Johnson 16/1, Kuchar 14/1, Zach Johnson 35/1, Bradley 25/1, English 501/, DeLaet 35/1 and Knox 100/1.

There’s an emphasis on scrambling and greens in regulation this week and its very competitive. There is no stand out value or a clear bet, so therefore I am going to sit out. Instead I am going to back a four in Ireland.
