Expecting him to go off as favourite, I would be happy with anything above 17.0.

The other 'top' runners have nothing special about their form at the Crowne Plaza :

Kuchar 16th, 56th, 27th

Fowler 16th, 38th, DNP

Mahan  10th, CUT, 27th

Dufner CUT, DNP, 59th

Zach Johnson at 17.0 realy!! as much as i agree that he is playing well i could never take him at that price therefore that would have to be a lay in my book.
Report CHIEF1 May 21, 2012 12:06 PM BST
Harris English @ 140's + Nick Watney @ 32's would be decent value against the top 5 - can see an outsider winning this so value in taking a few @ 100-150 especially for those who like to lay off.

No such a thing as an easy pick in golf.

Hunter Mahan at 27s for me. One of the most consistent players on tour this year, hits a lot of fairways and greens which will suit this course. 10th last year. Personally, I thought he would have been priced up around the same odds as the favourites and was pleasantly surprised to see him at 9/10 points bigger

Furyk at twice the price for me.

Yeah, agree that Furyk looks much better value and on the basis that putting and scrambling look like key stats here I like Brian Gay at 80/1

Report the muppet moans May 23, 2012 12:41 PM BST
Bryce Molder is a bit more of a hunch than anything else and the pick is based mainly on his scoring average at Colonial where he has only played six rounds - a m/c and a 5th. His average score works out at 67.33 which is better than anyone else playing including Zach Johnson. His win in the last year came two years after he had placed 6th in that event (albeit a different course) and also his win on the Nationwide Tour came two years after he had placed 5th at that event - maybe it's a good omen! 0.3 ew 80/1
I will stick with Leishman again this week as he really gave it a good try last week and but for a short missed putt on the 17th on Sunday he played quite well in contention. We still have the Texas angle on our side and whilst he was only 44th last year on his debut he was 7th with a round to go 0.3 ew 70/1.
James Driscoll intrigues me this week as this is the month he seems to come alive. His top 5 strike rate for all events on both tours is 5.2% and top ten 9.7% - in May this rises to 15.6% and 28.1% - that is quite a big difference. This year unusually he already has a pair of top ten finishes to his name. A lot of those good finishes have been in Texas and he will be very pleased with his form on Monday at the Open qualifier in the Lone Star State where he was one of the men who made it through the playoff to qualify for the second time. His form here is not exceptional but he has shot some low rounds - 0.25 ew 125/1 + 0.5 top 10 12/1.

Yeah some very strange prices Harry. Dufner and Mahan should be favourites for mine considering the season they're both having. Market in love with BVP these days. 5 top 10s this year is a misleading stat for mine, consistent yes but I don't recall a Sunday this year where he was truly a factor and looked like actually winning. Mahan and Dufner good prices as is Baddeley and Cauley if looking for bigger prices.
