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. My most common bet is $125 and if you classify that as 1 unit, then I have made a 667.93 unit profit from 2014-2020. (full stats)

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).

Well we were extremely close to our first cash of the year in the first tournament I was betting last week. It wouldn’t have been a huge one but Charles Howell III was looking good for at least an e/w place.

Alas despite a solid enough final round he hit a couple of bogeys that cost us.

What a tournament that was. Matt Kuchar was incredibly and fully deserved the win. Looking back, I think that was a missed opportunity. He had performed well there in the past prior to the changes and they really weren’t that dramatic. He was 40/1 as well. I think at the very least I should have had an e/w play on him at 1/8u.

Oh well it is what it is. Always easier to look back in retrospect and lambast yourself ha.

Desert Classic 2019 Betting Tips:

Always a tricky one due to them rotating courses. Looking at tournament form you don’t see a lot of consistency.

Jon Rahm 13/2: Rahm is playing good golf, is the defending champ here and really just listening to his interviews etc he seems really pumped and motivated for this one. I like to see that and despite the short odds, I do think he is worth 1/4u to win.

Adam Hadwin 25/1: Not coming in on super strong form or anything but his performances here can’t be ignored. Extremely consistent over the last few years and he didn’t play too shabby at the Sony Open. Made the cut and stayed under. 1/2u to win & E/W

Brian Stuard 150/1: excellent form at the Sony Open as he came tied for 8th with a total of -15. Playing some excellent golf and the 36 year old has performed well here in the past. Worth 1/8u to win & E/W.

Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship 2019 Betting Tips:

This is a hell of a tournament as my shortlist for this one was 20 golfers by the time I was done. Usually it’s at most half that. Pretty pumped for this tournament.

Tommy Fleetwood: 10/1 I mean look how can you not bet Tommy boy here? It might not even be +EV but the man is going for the three-peat. I haven’t even thoroughly analyzed this one I just want to back him and cheer him on. 1/4u to win.

Louis Oosthuizen: 18/1 Last time we saw Louis he was performing very well. He’s performed well here in the past and his accuracy really suits this course. He hasn’t played here in a few years of course but if his form is good enough he can do it. 1/2u to win & E/W.

Henrik Stenson: 16/1: Performs well here and someone who I tried my best to kick off the shortlist but just couldn’t do it. 1/8u to win & E/w

Martin Kaymer: 40/1: Kaymer is always worth a bet at tournaments he can perform at. We’ve seen it in the past year he can still show up. I’m not the only one into him as he was 50/1 to open the week so we will go smaller with 1/8 to win & E/W.

Pablo Larrazabai: 110/1: Previous winner here and last time we saw him he was playing good golf. Also came 2nd here two years ago. 1/8u to win & E/W

Very open tournament honestly.

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!
