WGC Bridgestone Invitational

Firestone Country Club is hosting the WGC Bridgestone Invitational once again which is a course that will suit long straight hitters. I am surprised that Shane Lowry and Rory McIlroy have opted for the French Open as they are past winners here.

Jordan Spieth

He played some excellent golf in the Dean & Deluca Invitaional three tournaments back, especially the final round to win by knocking in twenty footers for fun, chipped in twice and only had nine putts in the back nine. But Jordan has flopped in his last two outings finishing T37 & T57.

I can’t really back him for an outright win at 12/1 or back him for a top five finish at 5/2 as he is lacking consistency. But I will go for a less riskier option of trading him instead as he is very capable of turning it on at any moment, hopefully it’s this weekend!

Jason Day

Jason has won three tournaments this year which is quite impressive considering he hasn’t played that many times. But in his last three tournament he has managed one round in each of 76, 74 &  73 which is putting me off him this week. Also at 11/2 there isn’t much room to trade him either, so I will give him a miss this week.

Day – No bet

Dustin Johnson

Finally I got caught out laying Dusty last week in the US Open at 5/2 in running which was inevitable at some point but I won’t let that put me off taking him on again this weekend. Shane Lowry was four shot clear going into the final round and gifted the US Open to Dustin.

This course will suit him as he is hitting it long and accurate off of the tee but his putting is his weakest link. His tee to green play is the reason why he has had five top five finishes in his last seven tournaments and his putting is why he has only won one of them.

You can get 15/8 for a top five finish for him which looks very tempting but I will stick to laying him in running at a lesser price instead.

Lay Johnson in running at 4.00 (3/1)

The US Open – Lay Tip

Well what has happened to Jason Day and Rory McIlroy?  If they don’t get their acts together they could both miss the cut!

I was really hoping this would be the season where I would see the big three battling it out for the majors with two of them being in the final 2 ball on the Sunday afternoon but it’s not likely this week as the second major of the season is taking shape. All three have been really erratic this season I am wondering if there is a price with some bookie that none of them will win a Major this year!

Well on the plus side my favourite and most profitable player of 2016 has only gone and done it again, yes my cash cow golfer Dusty is at the top of the leaderboard once more.

Dustin Johnson

I remember in the US Open last year Dusty was one shot clear of Jordan Spieth going into the final hole and three putted from around fourteen feet or so to lose the match, two putts would have guaranteed a play-off. So from that moment on I have him marked down as a choker.

He has won 1 tournament each year since he turned pro and is yet to win one this season. He tends to play well in the first two rounds and then has a stinker in either round three or four which scuppers his chances of winning.

I should have laid him last week, but I changed my mind as a lot of the top players were absent because they were putting the finishing touches to their games for this tournament, I am kicking myself now as he had a stinker in round three whch ruined his chances of winning.

But although Rory and Jason are hacking around this week there is still the likes of Jordan and Sergio not too far behind.

Memorial Tournament – Round 3

Retro program of the memorial tournament

My “cash cow” lay of Dustin Johnson is shaping up nicely as he has dropped down the leaderboard.

Matt Kuchar

He has an hour or before he tees off and he is the current joint leader at -12. He has finished 3rd, 3rd and around 6th or 7th in his last three tournaments. I have traded him for the previous 2 weeks but today I will not back to lay but lay to back!

There have been some decent scores shot on the front 9 so far today and I think the chasing pack, which includes Rory and Jason will make a dent in his lead, making his price drift out in the betting on Betfair.
