Here we are already at the final Major of the season and the question is to Tiger or not to Tiger?
Last week we secured a good profit on the Tournament thanks to the exploits of our main pick Keegan Bradley who finished second but still needed a NASA telescope to see Woods in the distance.
It was the Tiger of old bullying a field into submission on a course he loves more than any other the very long and very dull Firestone. But just before you go down the back of the sofa and attempt to empty the children’s piggybanks to get the Woods to win the PGA @ 4/1 a few words of caution.
This weeks PGA takes place in New York state on the short but oh so tricky Oak Hill Course where you have to drive straight or you are toast. It’s a very different test and the last time it was played here Woods had a shocker and he was in great form leading up to it. The course is a US Open style layout and we remember Woods shocking play at this years at Merrion. My theory is that on this type of course the Tigers confidence is shot to pieces and last weeks demolition job will not change that.
Recent Open winner Phil I can’t stop smiling Mickelson will fancy his chances but like Woods may well be too wayward off the tee here. Last time the event was played here Shaun Micheel won with -4. Shaun Micheel is so obscure when he got home last week his wife asked him for ID but what he did do that week something he has never done since was putt like a demon. Like all US Major venues the greens are set up fast and treacherous so you need to be playing into them from the fairways.
What of the European challenge, well it’s difficult to see Westwood getting over his Open last round antics though he does have the game for here. Luke Donald has shown flickers of form and could contend though it’s hard to see him winning. Rory is the defending Champion but will find this place very different to the wide open Kiawah Island that he destroyed last year.
This is going to be a fascinating week and at Golf Bet Profits we are placing four bets on players who will relish this track. One is at a huge price and I’m convinced is in with a huge chance. Join us I really do look forward to seeing you on the fairways.
Back next Tuesday.
