The Open Championship takes centre stage this week when the world’s best hit the fairways of Royal Portrush on the north coast of Northern Ireland and I try to identify look at some of the chances in my eyes.

I also take a brief look at events on the PGA and Korn Ferry (ex Web.Com) Tours.

Betting Thoughts for July 11th

This week we analyse betting options on four professional golf events.

The Aberdeen Assets Scottish Open, the John Deere Classic on the PGA Tour, the Marathon Classic on the LPGA Tour and the TPC Colorado Championship on the Korn Ferry Tour all come under scrutiny and with just a week before the Open Championship begins then the Scottish Open takes on a greater significance.

Betting thoughts for events on the LPGA, the PGA and European Tours – July 4th

Above Katherine Kirk – can she continue her good record at the Thornberry Creek Classic?

This week we take a look at the Dubai Irish Open, the 3M Open on the PGA Tour and the Thornberry Creek Classic on the LPGA Tour.

We struggled a little last week although it was a case of close but no cigar with our longshot on the LPGA Tour Brittany Altomare.

With now just two more events before the Open Championship this week’s event in Ireland in particular takes on more importance especially given its staging on one of the hidden gems of Irish Golf the Lahinch Golf Club on the rugged west coast.

Golf Betting for June 27th

This week we take a look at three golfing events on which betting is available, the PGA Tour’s Rocket Mortgage Classic, an inaugural event, the NW Arkansas Classic on the LPGA Tour and the European Tour’s Andalucia Masters.

No winners last week as such but Matthew Fitzpatrick so nearly got us a return when he went down in a playoff in Germany, Jason Scrivener led the Australians which we thought might be the case and although we struggled on the LPGA Tour it was so great to see Australian Hannah Green win her first LPGA Tour title and first major.

Here is a link to last week’s predictions.

US Open and Meijer Classic Betting Prospects

The US Open at Pebble Beach takes pride of place this week and although we will also take a look at the LPGA Tour’s Meijer Classic there is little doubt where most of the golfing world’s attention will lie.

I take a look at the leading chances at both events and also try and find a bit of value away from the logical selections.

Canadian Open and LPGA Shoprite Classic under scrutiny

This week we take a look at two events, the Canadian Open, the forerunner to next week’s US Open at Pebble Beach being played at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ontario, the first time at this venue since 2012 and the LPGA Tour are in Galloway in New Jersey for this week’s Shoprite LPGA Classic.

Last week we experienced mixed success, certainly JeongLee6 one of our selections for the US Women’s Open but not a lot of joy elsewhere unfortunately

This week we take a look at four golf events across the Globe on which betting is available, the most significant being the US Women’s Open, the most prestigious event in Women’s golf.

We also assess the chances at the Memorial Tournament in Ohio, the Belgian Knockout in Europe and the Gateway to the Mizuno Open on the Japan Tour.

 

 

Golf Betting Thoughts May 23rd

Last week’s attention of the golfing world centered fairly and squarely on the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black but this week we take a look at betting prospects in events on the PGA, the LPGA and the European Tours.

The Charles Schwab Challenge at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth is this week’s PGA Tour event, the LPGA Tour is in Virginia for the Pure Silk Championship while the European Tour is in Denmark for the Made In Denmark event.

Last week we covered out bets with the success of Brooke Koepka and while there is no point boasting about selecting a favourite it sure beats picking a losing outsider.

The PGA Championship – the Chances and Why

The PGA Championship earns the attention of the golfing world this week when the second men’s major championship of the year is played at Bethpage Black on Long Island just outside of New York City.

Brooks Koepka begins the event as the favourite and the defending champion and it would seem that given the demands of Bethpage one of the game’s leading half dozen players is likely to take the Wanamaker Trophy.

We also look back at last week to see how we performed.
