Charl & Casey came good for me last week on EW money for a 66.4 pts return for my 40pts outlay.
Running Bank now 146 pts.
The golf thread on the Irish sports section of betfair forum is always a good read with callitasucit a notable poster who does an impressive write up most weeks and posts up regular 3 ball tips during the tournament. Always good to hear different opinions in the week up the event. There is only so much time in the day and if others can cut down on the workload it makes final picks much easier.
This weeks picks.
Czech Masters - Snap from last week.
Saw enough to suggest I was on the right track last week. Lipsky especially looks primed for a good finish.
David Lipsky 50/1 Stanjames 2pt EW
Kevin Phelan 80/1 Stanjames 1.2pt EW
The Barclays - Playoffs
Course will not play like 2011 and I am looking towards recent form for my selections.
Off the top of the betting Justin Rose stands out. Plays these technical courses very well but @ 12/1 he is passed over.
Settled on 2 players coming coming to the boil.
Charl Schwartzel 60/1 Bet365 4pts EW - We have seen his form turnaround since the US Open. Following him on shottracker last week he played very solid. Driving it well, GIR stats excellent, scrambling always is top notch...only putting let him down. Had a negative in his strokes gained putting but only need a small percentage shift and he would have won last week. Need to move into Top 70 to qualify for next week. Incentive is there.
Matt Kuchar 34/1 EW 6 places Betbright 2.8pts EW - Another on his way back to form. Canadian Open, WGC and PGA Champ were all good performances. He is trending in the right direction and unlike Charl Kuchar is a very consistent putter. 2nd here in 2011 has played well here in the past. I've said I am more concerned with recent form but course form is not a negative either.
