Northern Trust Betting Preview 2017 – FedEx Cup Playoffs

The Northern Trust Betting Preview 2017 - FedEx Cup PlayoffsGlen Oaks Club, Long Island, New York

Par 70, 7,350 yards

 

The Course

Previously known as the Barclays, the newly named Northern Trust arrives at a new venue this year in the shape of Glen Oaks Golf Club in New York. Measuring a testing 7,350 yards, Glen Oaks was founded in 1924 and began on land carved out of the William K. Vanderbilt estate just south of Long Island.

The course as then moved to a larger 250 acre site in Old Westbury where there was three nine-hole courses designed. It stayed that was up until 2011 where a major redesign was overseen by Craig Currier of Bethpage State Park. The course for the tournament days will take from the three nine hole courses with holes 1-3 and 6-9 from the white course, holes 4 and 5 will be from the red course and the entire blue course will be played.

The course has 12 par 4’s, four par 3’s and two par 5’s. The course has been described as the Augusta of the North and at a glance appears to be a tree lined layout with fairly generous fairways and Poa Annua greens. The two par 5’s look to measure around the 600 yard mark and will be reachable by most of the field. The par 4’s and par 3’s look a bit trickier with water features on six of the 18 holes. The main areas to focus on here are par 3 and par 4 scoring, GIR and a hot putter. Its worth bearing in mind that the cream usually rises to the top in the FedEx Playoff events so be on the lookout for players that are in great form coming into this.

 

Jordan Spieth 10/1 Northern Trust Betting Preview 2017 - FedEx Cup PlayoffsJordan Speith 10/1

The Open Champion comes here in fine form with two wins, a second and two top 15’s in his last seven starts. Even after a few early wobbles, he showed unbelievable grit, class and mental toughness to get the job done in Royal Birkdale after a couple of early bogeys. After finishing solo fourth in New Orleans which included a 64 in the final round, Spieth went on to finish T2 at the Dean and Deluca Invitational after an impressive final round 65.

He then travelled to Ohio for the Memorial tournament and finished a respectable T13 for the week. He then had back to back wins, the first came at the Travelers Championship where he holed out from a bunker to beat Daniel Berger in a playoff, the second came after his heroics at The Open.

The Texan ticks all the boxes here ranking 12th in GIR, fifth in SGTTG, eighth in par 3 scoring, first in par 4 scoring and 17th in par 5 scoring. If Spieth gets the putter going on these Poa Annua greens, which he likes, and drives well he could be a huge threat here.

 

Jason Day 16/1 Northern Trust Betting Preview 2017 - FedEx Cup PlayoffsJason Day 16/1

The Aussie has had a mixed bag of form this season and has had a few injuries to contend with but he looks to be showing some decent form lately after a decent performance at the PGA Championship where he finished T9 in his last start.Day looks to be threatening in the first two rounds and had a disastrous finish to his third round dropping five shots back after taking a bogey on 17 and an eight on the 18th.

He has shown glimpses of decent form over the last couple of months and had a great week at the Byron Nelson finishing solo second which included four rounds of 69 or better. He followed that with a T15 at Memorial, T27 at The Open Championship and a T24 at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.

Day played well in this event over the last few years finishing T4 last year, a win in 2015 and a T2 in 2014. Statswise he ranks 23rd in driving distance, second in SG around the green, 47th in SGP and 17th in par 5 scoring. He always seems to play well this time of year and has a great record on the East Coast. These forgiving fairways and fast greens could suit his eye.

 

Patrick Reed 33/1 Northern Trust Betting Preview 2017 - FedEx Cup PlayoffsPatrick Reed 33/1 

The defending champion looks to be in fine fettle coming to New York this week and could well be the man to beat here. He seems to be playing really well but the odd 72 or 73 has been sneaking in here and there but he has been in good form over the last couple of months with four top 20’s and two top 10’s in his last nine starts. Reed had a good week at the Byron Nelson where he didnt shoot worse than a 70 throughout the week to finish T20. He followed that with a T13 at The US Open, T5 at the Travelers and a T17 at The Quicken Loans. He then travelled to the Greenbrier and shot three rounds of 69 or better to finish T20 and to finish six under for the tournament.

At the PGA Championship, Reed again shot three rounds of 69 or better to post six under par and finish in a tie for second. He has a good record in this event over the last couple of years with a win last year and a T9 in 2014. Statswise Reed ranks eighth in strokes gained putting which will be a big plus here on these greens. That, along with great current form make Patrick Reed a decent shout here this week.

 

Matt Kuchar 35/1 Northern Trust Betting Preview 2017 - FedEx Cup PlayoffsMatt Kuchar 35/1

Throughout researching golf tournaments throughout the year to bet on, Matt Kuchar is one of those guys that tends to go under my radar. Ive always considered him a “place” guy because he rarely wins but given his current form over the last couple of months, I decided he was worth taking a chance on especially because he seems to be putting himself in a position to win a bit more lately.

Kuchar is one of the steadiest guys on tour and has been in great form lately finishing outside the top 30 just once in nine starts. After finishing T4 in Augusta, Kuchar followed that with a T9 at the Byron Nelson, T12 at the Dean and Deluca, T4 at Memorial, T16 at The US Open, solo second at The Open, T17 at The WGC Bridgestone and a T9 at The PGA Championship.

He also has some great form at this event over the last few years finishing T5 in 2014 and T19 in 2013. Statswise he ticks alot of boxes here ranking 30th in SGTTG, fifth in scrambling and 11th in par 4 scoring. Kuch looks good value here to keep up his good run of form.

RBC Canadian Open Betting Preview 2016

RBC Canadian Open 2016 Betting PreviewGlen Abbey Golf Club, Oakville, Ontario

Par 72, 7,253 yards

Last Week at Royal Troon –

Stenson Claims Claret Jug with Flawless 63

It was a superb battle between Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson in the final round of The Open Championship. They traded blows throughout the round with some accurate driving, superb iron play and great scrambling. Just when you thought one of them would drop a shot or two after a rare mistake, they would bounce back with in style. However it was Stenson who came out on top with four birdies in the last five holes that clinched the Claret Jug and gave us a nice 28/1 winner.

The Course

Glen Abbey hosts the RBC Canadian Open for the 28th time this year and was the first course Jack Nicklaus designed himself and first hosted Canada’s National Championship in 1977. Most recently, this event took place here in 2004,2008,2009, 2013 and 2015 so it will be worth checking for players with good course history. It is located near Lake Ontario and has four par 5’s, four par 3’s and 10 par 4’s and has nearly 100 bunkers and numerous water hazards. Three of the four par 5’s are on the back nine (13,16,18) which are three of the easiest holes on the course and will offer up some birdies and possibly eagles on the way in.

The opening nine holes are quite flat and shouldn’t be too much of a problem for the players to negotiate. However the back nine could be a little bit trickier with a distinguishing feature of the Glen Abbey course are the “Valley Holes”, numbered 11 through 15. On number 11, a par 4, players tee off a cliff to a fairway that is approximately 60 feet below on the valley floor. The second shot must clear Sixteen Mile Creek to the green. Holes 12, 13 and 14 all use Sixteen Mile Creek as a hazard in one form or another. Number 15 is a short par 3 with a sharply-sloping green, after which players climb out of the valley to the 16th hole. The winning score on this course has been between 16 and 18 under over the last few years so expect plenty of birdies.

The defending champion Jason Day proved that hitting fairways off the tee is not essential around here. He ranked T72 for driving accuracy but was second in driving distance and ranked fourth in strokes gained putting last year so that gives us a clue what to look out for statswise here. Key areas of focus here are GIR, strokes gained tee to green, driving distance, par 5 scoring and strokes gained putting. This course is quite short for PGA Tour standards so players with a bit of length along with good putting, scrambling and accurate iron play are worth considering here.

 

Dustin Johnson 13/2 RBC Canadian Open Betting Preview 2016Dustin Johnson 13/2

The World number two arrives in Canada after adding another top 10 finish to his season after finishing T9 at Royal Troon last week. He could have finished better last week in Troon but just didn’t make enough putts on those slower than average greens. The American has been in superb form recently finishing fourth in Riviera, third in Houston, T4 in Augusta, T12 at The Byron Nelson, third in Memorial, fifth at the St. Jude and back to back wins in Oakmont and Firestone.

Johnson was second here in 2013 and comes here in better form this time around. He ranks second in driving distance, 26th in GIR, 39th in strokes gained putting, 22nd in par 5 scoring and leads par 4 scoring. Favourites have a good record here over the years and after playing with such dominance over the last few weeks, Johnson has to be the man to beat here.

 

Matt Kuchar 14/1 RBC Canadian Open Betting Preview 2016Matt Kuchar 14/1

With the exception of the last two majors, Kuch has played great golf recently with five top 6’s in his last seven starts. He had a great week in Sawgrass finishing T3 and followed that with a solo third at The Byron Nelson, T6 at The Dean and Deluca Invitational, T4 at Memorial and T3 in Firestone.

He has played great here in the past finishing second last year and seventh in 2013. Statswise he ranks 33d in GIR, 22nd in strokes gained putting, 28th in scrambling and fifth in par 4 scoring. Kuchar is without a doubt one of the most consistent players on tour and I expect him to go well here.

 

Emiliano Grillo 40/1 RBC Canadian Open Betting Preview 2016Emiliano Grillo 40/1

The Argentinian started the season in style with and recorded his first win on The PGA Tour at the Frys.com Open. Lately he has three top 15’s in his last four starts and comes here on the back of a respectable T12 at The Open Championship in Royal Troon. He finished T17 at The Masters and followed that with a T11 at Memorial and a T14 at The WGC Bridgestone.

He played well here in Glen Abbey last year finishing in a respectable T22 for the tournament which included an opening round 64. He also ticks some statistical boxes here averaging just under 295 off the tee and ranks 30th in GIR and 34th in strokes gained off the tee. Grillo looks to have found some good form lately and could be one to watch here.

 

Colt Knost 40/1 RBC Canadian Open Betting Preview 2016Colt Knost 50/1

Knost has been in fine form over the last few weeks with three top 5’s and a top 20 in his last six starts. He played superb in Sawgrass finishing T3 which included an impressive 63 in round two. He followed that with a T4 at The Byron Nelson which included another 63 in round two, T18 at The St.Jude Classic and a solo third at the Barracuda Championship.

He started well here last year shooting 68,69 in the first two rounds but fell away over the weekend to finish T43. He leads driving accuracy hitting just under 75% of fairways off the tee and ranks 30th in strokes gained putting and 15th in scrambling. Knost is playing great golf lately and looks a very generous price this week.

 

William McGirt 50/1 RBC Canadian Open Betting Preview 2016William McGirt 50/1

The American won in Memorial a few weeks ago and played great golf throughout the tournament which included a superb third round 64. He has been playing well since mid-February finishing T20 at Riviera, T8 at The Honda and T9 at the RBC Heritage. He followed that with a T17 at The Wells Fargo, win in Memorial and a T7 at The WGC Bridgestone which included an opening round 64.

He has played well here in the past finishing T2 in 2013 shooting 69,67,68 over the weekend. He played here last year shooting 67,69,75,69 to finish T34, which would have been a lot better if it weren’t for the third round 75. Statswise he ranks 31st in strokes gained tee to green, 26th in strokes gained putting, 30th in driving accuracy and 17th in par 4 scoring.

 

Final Selections – 

Dustin Johnson 3pts WIN 13/2

The Masters Betting Preview 2015

The Masters Betting Preview 2015

Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta, Georgia

Par 72, 7,435 yards

 Last week:

What an exciting finale we had last night to the Houston Open! J.B Holmes shot a superb 64 in the final round and got himself into a playoff with Johnson Wagner and Jordan Spieth. Speith hit a poor second shot into the first playoff hole and finished with a bogey to take himself out of contention. J.B beat Wagner after he missed a six foot par putt to continue the playoff. 25/1 winner in the bag, happy days.

The Course

Augusta National is one of the most beautiful, eye catching golf courses on the planet and has seen so much emotion over the years. Augusta National first opened 82 years ago in 1933, and has been modified many times by different architects. It is a long demanding test with very tricky greens and lots of run off areas.

The Masters was started by Clifford Roberts and Bobby Jones. Jones designed Augusta National with course architect Alistair MacKenzie. The field of players is smaller than those of the other major championships because it is an invitational event, held by the Augusta National Golf Club.

This course measures just under 7,500 yards and will demand a mixture of power and accuracy. There are a few elements to consider at Augusta when compiling a list of players to bet on. The first element is experience. Players that have played well here in the past tend to go well again, even more so if they are showing some good current form. The second element is a hot putter and a good short game. Augusta National’s teeth are its lightning fast greens with its tricky slopes and run off areas.

If a player misses the fairway at here, the key is to land the ball in the right part of the green with a high penetrated ball flight. If a player has a high penetrated ball flight with a draw, or a fade if you’re a lefty, that will be a big advantage. The main reason for this is that many of the holes in Augusta are dog legs so players that can shape the ball should score well.

Greens in regulation is another stat to consider here as the greens are big and slopey so hitting the ball in the right portion of the green will be very important. Approach stats, strokes gained putting, scrambling, par 4 and par 5 scoring are other stats to take into consideration here.

 

Bubba Watson The Masters 10/1

Bubba Watson 10/1

The defending champ comes back to Augusta National in great form and hasn’t finished outside the top 15 in his last six events. His good form began back in November, where he won the WGC HSBC Champions in Shanghai. His good form continued into December where he finished T11 at The Hero World Challenge on eight under for the tournament.

He started 2015 well with a solo 10th at The Hyundai Tournament of Champions, T2 at The Phoenix Open and T14 at The Northern Trust Open. Most recently, he finished solo 3rd at The WGC Cadillac in Doral. Since then, he hasn’t played in any other events and should be well rested coming into Augusta. He has a great record at this event with two wins in the last three years and a T20 in 2008.

Statswise Bubba ranks third in driving distance, fourth in strokes gained tee to green, 12th in strokes gained putting and second in scrambling. He also ranks sixth in par 3 scoring, 23rd in par 4 scoring and first in par 5 scoring. Bubba is made for this course and has the current form to contend and win for the third time in four years.

 

Jordan Spieth 10/1 The Masters

Jordan Speith 10/1

He nearly did it again last Sunday and lost in a playoff to J.B. Holmes and Johnson Wagner to finish P2. There is no other player in better form at the moment than Jordan Spieth. Other than a missed cut at The Farmers in February, Spieth hasn’t finished worse than T17 in his last seven events. After winning the Australian Open in November, he then went on to win again at The Hero World Challenge in December and finish 2014 off in style.

He began 2015 with a T7 at The Phoenix Open, T7 at The AT&T in Pebble Beach, T4 at The Northern Trust Open, T17 at The WGC Cadillac, win at The Valspar, a solo 2nd in Texas and a P2 last week in Houston. Last year, Spieth came close to winning in Augusta, but feel off the lead on the back nine due to some late bogeys and finished T2 on five under for the tournament.

He also seems to fit the bill statswise ranking eighth in strokes gained tee to green, fifth in strokes gained putting and 39th in scrambling. He also ranks fifth in par 4 scoring, first in par 4 birdie or better leaders and second in approaches from 150-175, which is a good stat for approaches into some of the longer par 4’s. Spieth is even more experienced this time around and is in superb current form and knows how to win in a top class field.

 

Jaosn Day 14/1 The Masters

Jason Day 14/1

Jason Day has been in great form so far this year and hasn’t finished worse than T17 in five of his last six tournaments. He had a great start to the year with a T3 at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, which included an impressive final round 62. He followed that with a respectable T17 at The Sony Open in Hawaii and won the following week at The Farmers Insurance Open in Torrey Pines beating J.B. Holmes in a playoff. He then went on to have yet another good week at The AT&T in Pebble Beach finishing T4, which included a superb 62 in round 2.

Most recently, he finished T31 at The WGC Cadillac in Doral and had a good week at Bay Hill finishing T17 on nine under for the tournament. Day has come close to winning the Masters in the past finishing T20 last year, solo 3rd in 2013 and T2 in 2011.

He ranks ninth in driving distance, third in GIR, 19th in strokes gained tee to green and 12th in approaches from 125-150, which is good stat for approaches into the longer par 4’s. Day also ranks ninth in scrambling, eighth in par 3 scoring, first in par 4 scoring and 44th in par 5 scoring. With great current form and a good history at Augusta, this could be the year Jason Day wins his first major.

 

Henrik Stenson Th Masters 18/1

Henrik Stenson 18/1

With three top five’s in his last three tournaments, it’s hard to leave Henrik Stenson out of the selections this week. He played well in Doral at The WGC Cadillac finishing T4 on four under for the tournament. He followed that with a solo 4th at The Valspar and a solo 2nd at The Arnold Palmer Invitational in Bay Hill, which he should have won if it weren’t for a couple of missed putts.

Stenson has three top 20’s at Augusta since 2008. He played well here last year finishing T14 on +1 for the tournament. In 2013, he finished T18 and level par for the week. Stenson ranks 13th in driving accuracy, second in GIR, second in strokes gained tee to green and second in strokes gained putting.

He also ranks third in approaches from 125-150 and 27th in approaches from 225-250, which are two good stats for approaches into the longer par 4’s and par 5’s. Stenson also ranks fourth in scrambling, eighth in par 3 scoring and second in par 4 scoring. He decided to withdraw from Houston last week to get some practice in Augusta, which should stand to him. He has contended in majors before and is in much better form this time around than he has been in previous years.

 

Jimmy Walker 25/1 The Masters

Jimmy Walker 25/1

After recording his second victory of 2015 in his home town of San Antonio, Texas a couple of weeks ago, Jimmy Walker is another player showing some brilliant form this season. He played superb from start to finish and topped driving accuracy, GIR and strokes gained putting stats for the tournament. He started the new season with a T4 at The Shriners Open back in October and followed that with a solo 15th at The Hero World Challenge. He began 2015 at The Hyundai Tournament of Champions and finished P2 after losing a playoff to Patrick Reed.

He quickly bounced back and won the Sony Open in Hawaii the following week and followed that with a T7 at The Farmers in Torrey Pines. He played well at The AT&T in Pebble finishing in a respectable T21 and finished T31 at The WGC Cadillac. Walker is another player that seems to suit Augusta, finishing T8 here last year.

Statswise he ticks all the boxes ranking 17th in driving distance, 21st in GIR, 12th in strokes gained tee to green and third in strokes gained putting. He also ranks seventh in approaches from 125-150, 35th in par 3 scoring, 12th in par 4 scoring and fourth in par 5 scoring. With two wins already under his belt this year, Jimmy Walker looks to be in great form and could add another victory to his ever growing trophy cabinet in Augusta.

 

Matt Kuchar The Masters 33/1

Matt Kuchar 33/1

Kuchar is one of the most consistent players in the world and has only finished outside the top 25 twice in his last 10 tournaments. He started the season with a T21 at The Frys, T22 at The McGladrey and a T8 at The Hero World Challenge. He followed that with a T17 at The Hyundai Tournament of Champions and a T3 at The Sony Open. He then had a T2 at The Humana, T23 at The WGC Cadillac and most recently, a T15 at The Texas Open.

Kuchar’s record in Augusta is superb with a T5 last year, T8 in 2013, T3 in 2012, T27 in 2011 and a T24 in 2010. He ranks 15th in strokes gained putting, fifth in scrambling, fifth in par 4 scoring and 19th in par 5 scoring. With steady form so far this season and a great record at Augusta over the last three years, Kuchar could be a big contender this week.

 

Final selections –

Bubba Watson 2pts EW 10/1

Jordan Speith 2 pts EW 10/1

Jason Day 2 pts EW 14/1

Henrik Stenson 1.5 pts EW 18/1

Hyundai Tournament of Champions Betting Preview 2015

HTOC 2015 pic 1

Plantation Course, Kapalua, Hawaii
Par 73, 7,452 yards

The Course

Happy New Year! Let’s hope 2015 is a happy and profitable one! We kick off 2015 with The Hyundai Tournament of Champions, which starts this Friday. This tournament is only for previous winners and has a field of only 34.

The Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort is a par 73 measuring a lengthy 7,453 yards. It is quite open and runs along the slopes of the West Maui Mountains and is quite exposed to the elements. It generally suits the big hitters if they can keep it in the fairway with three of the four par 5’s reachable in two. The 18th is a 663 yard par 5 that plays a lot shorter, as it runs downhill and should be reachable by some of the longer hitters. It also has three par 3’s and 11 par 4’s.

Accuracy off the tee is not hugely important here as the fairways are quite wide and forgiving. The greens are also quite forgiving with some of the approaches having uphill and downhill slopes into the greens, which have some undulations. Good putters have done well here with the likes of Zach Johnson (2014), Dustin Johnson (2013) and Steve Stricker (2012, 2nd 2013) being past winners. With 11 par 4’s on this course, it is also worth considering par 4 scoring and GIR.

With the weather set to be calm and sunny with moderate winds, the scoring should be low with the winner averaging around the 20 under mark judging from previous years.

billy-horschel-pga-tour_r640

Billy Horchel 20/1
Billy had a superb end to last season finishing runner up in The Deutsche Bank, and then going on to win both The BMW Championship and The Tour Championship, taking home The FedExCup crown and a tasty 10 million bucks!

He had a good week at Tiger’s event recently, The Hero World Challenge finishing T8 shooting rounds of 73,72,67,67 on nine under par for the tournament. He also showed good signs the following week at The Franklin Templeton Shootout finishing T3 with Ian Poulter. Billy also played well here last year shooting rounds of 72,72,68,66 on his way to a respectable T6 finish.

Horchel ranks sixth in driving distance so far this season averaging an impressive 312 yards off the tee. Last season, he ranked fourth in GIR, 23rd in driving accuracy, 15th in par 5 scoring and second in putts from 5-10 feet. He is clearly showing some good form and could be one to watch here this week.

Jason Day 1

Jason Day 15/2
After an injury stricken 2014, Jason Day will be looking to start 2015 off with a bang finishing 2014 off with a win at The Franklin Templeton Shootout with Cameron Tringale. He also has a good week at The Hero World Challenge finishing solo 5th on 14 under par, which included an impressive final round 66.

After a win at The World Cup of Golf and The Accenture World Matchplay, Day also performed well in the last of the FedExCup playoffs at the end of October finishing T2 at The Barclays, T7 at The Deutsche Bank and T4 at The Tour Championship at East Lake. His last visit to Kapalua was in 2011 when he shot rounds of 73,66,69, 70 on his way to a T9th finish.

Last season, Day ranked 18th in driving distance, 20th in strokes gained putting, 29th in par 4 performance and first in putting from five feet. After two good performances in December, it appears Jason Day is back to full strength and could be a huge contender here.

Patrick Reed pic 2

Patrick Reed 22/1
Patrick Reed had a good start to the season with a respectable T26 at The CIMB Classic back in November. He then followed that with a T22 at The WGC HSBC Champions in Shanghai.

Most recently, Reed played well at The Hero World Challenge in Florida finishing T3, where he shot a 63 in round two and had another good performance the following week at The Franklin Templeton Shootout finishing T10 with partner Brandt Snedeker.

Reed played this event last year and carding rounds of 70, 72,67,73 on his way to a respectable T16, which is not bad for his first visit. He hasn’t missed a cut since The Open Championship last July and is becoming a very solid performer in big events. At 22/1 he seems to be good value for a player that has shown good recent form over the Christmas period.

First Round Leader Bets-

141st Open Championship - Round Three

Matt Kuchar 14/1
Kuchar has a good record at this event with four top 10’s in his last five appearances. He finished T6 last year, T9 in 2013, T6 in 2011 and solo 3rd in 2010. He started well in three of his last four appearances shooting an opening round 68 last year, 69 in 2011 and a 67 in 2010. Kuch also started well recently at The Hero World Challenge shooting an opening round 69 and has been as steady as they come in terms of consistency.

Ryan Moore pic 2

Ryan Moore 22/1
Moore is another player that has a good record around Kapalua finishing solo 10th last year and T6 in 2010. He has started strongly in two of his last three appearances shooting an opening round 67 last year and a 69 in 2010. Moore in another steady player and had a great start to his season winning the CIMB Classic for the second time, where he shot 68,69,67,67 finishing seventeen under par total for the tournament. After a few weeks off, he should be feeling fresh coming to a course he has played so well on in the past.

Final Selections –
Billy Horchel 1 pt EW 22/1
Jason Day 1 pt EW 15/2
Patrick Reed 1 pt EW 22/1

First Round Leader –
Matt Kuchar 1 pt EW 14/1
