Betting Note: Betting amounts are based on confidence level. My normal betting amounts are $125, $250 & $500, although I will go as low as $62.50 and as high as $1,000 on occasion.

E/W (Each-Way) bets means you split that amount. So if it is a $250 E/W bet, that means $125 on them to win, $125 on them to place (Usually in the Top 5).

Hi guys,

Usually I do individual tips for all the golf tournaments each week but for this week and next week I’m going to throw them all into one post with minimal write-ups.

The reason for that is I am heading off to Vegas tomorrow to watch the Super Bowl. I’m absolutely swamped getting ready for the trip here and really behind – so while I will put in the same work in coming up with the golf betting tips I’d rather save a couple of hours of writing. I also return on Monday night or possibly Tuesday morning depending on flights etc so next week will be more of the same. I’ll do my studying on the plane home and be ready.

Unfortunately I misread the LPGA schedule and there’ll be no betting tips for that.

Phoenix Open Betting Tips:

When it comes to historical finishes due to the changes at this course we can only really factor in last years.

It’s possible he has peaked, but we’ll take Snedeker Top 10 Finish for half a unit. Snedeker had such a sick, sick round last week and his form looks amazing. He also finished 10th here last year. Like we said a lot of golfers peak and after they win 1 they regress for a bit which is why we’re only doing half a unit on him.

We’ll also take a full unit on Bubba Watson Top 10 Finish. Bubba has switched things around and is being more selective in where he plays. But Watson looked very solid in the Tournament of Champions. Not sure if he has what it takes to win this one despite a 2nd place finish last year so we’re going to play this one fairly safe.

Finally we’ll go for a rather risky Hideki Matsuyama 9/2 Top 5 Finish. We always love Matsuyama and he came 2nd here last year. We tipped him to win last year at 25/1 as an E/W bet and obviously cashed on that. We don’t feel as strongly this year hence just a Top 5 Finish. Unit bet.

Dubai Desert Classic Betting Tips:

We’ll be taking Martin Kaymer Top 5 Finish. Kaymer has a solid history at this course and even though he obviously isn’t playing the best golf in the little we’ve seen him so far – we think Kaymer can get a good finish here. Rory is playing and that makes it a bit trickier but we have faith in Kaymer to do the business.

We’ll also take a half unit bet on Stephen Gallacher Top 10 Finish at 11/2 odds. his form here is incredible and he is worth a shot.

Allianz Championship Betting Tips:

Our first tip of the year on the Champions Tour and it’s Michael Allen Top 5 Finish. Only a quarter unit bet of 7/2 odds. Allen didn’t look good a the Mitsubishi but he started poor and got going near the end. He’s won this tournament previously and has a good history on this course.


Since 2014 I've been providing free golf tips on a weekly basis. Each tournament analysis, research and writing the betting tips takes over 10 hours per tournament. That doesn’t include watching each tournament and taking notes etc. It's why I do less and less non-PGA tips these days.

I’ve delivered a lot of big winners over the years, and all I ask is if you appreciate the work I put in and so I can continue to keep the tips free, a donation is highly recommended and much appreciated.

While I obviously make enough money from my golf bets, this sort of financial support would motivate me to write more content on here. This would include golf prop bets like first round leader, head vs head and much more plus daily fantasy golf articles. Cheers!
