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,

Sorry I didn’t have any tips last week. That’s unfortunately going to happen every now and then.

Basically what happens is I sit down and start looking at the data and I’m just not feeling it. Players aren’t jumping out at me and I almost feel forced to make bets etc.

At that point I always just skip the week and return fresh the next week.

Personally I hate it. I’ll be sitting down on the weekend watching the golf just not caring even though we had a couple of classics last weekend. However without bets I just don’t have as much interest.

But that’s the way it’ll be sometimes – as otherwise I feel like I’m just blowing our money away.

If there are no tips up by Tuesday night assume I’m skipping that week. That’s one reason I don’t charge for these tips – to save me the hassle of feeling that pressure.

Alright on with this week. Nothing huge confidence wise but a lot of possibilities.

Greenbrier Classic 2017 Betting Tips:

This tournament didn’t take place last year due to the flooding. The course was given a full renovation. It’s still pretty much the same course just nice and new. Course form should still be a factor.

Webb Simpson: Solid performances here in the past and he’s been in good form over May/June other than that poor showing at the Memorial Tournament. I’d rather a bit better odds but I’ll take 1/4 unit to win and E/W. If it was higher odds – over 30/1 – I’d probably do half a unit.

Danny Lee: Similar to Webb in that he’s had some good form coming into this one. He won it last time out and I do always hate backing a back to back winner. The pressure is too much for a lot of them – but I’ll take 1/4 unit to win and E/W.

Ted Potter Jr. A previous winner here I believe Ted is worth a 1/4 unit play to win and E/W. He’s been playing the Web.com where he has had some really good form with 4 Top 10 finishes in the last 3 months. He might come out here with something to prove. Worth a bet at the odds.

That’s 3 quarter unit plays. I’m going to take a final quarter unit and spread it to win and E/W on 4 higher stakes golfers. The reason is that in the last few years here we’ve seen winners at odds of 125/1, 100/1, 500/1 etc. So hey it’s worth a shot.

The 4 I’m betting on are:

– Smylie Kaufman 110/1
– Scott Brown 140/1
– Spencer Levin 140/1
– Johnson Wagner 90/1

Irish Open 2017 Betting Tips:

First European Tour tournament at this course so historical course form data doesn’t help. From a quick look at this course I think the people who excel on Par 4/5s will be the ones to dominate.

I’m making that my main focus this week and these are the bets.

– Hideki Matsuyama 1/2 unit to win
– Tommy Fleetwood 1/2 unit to win & E/W
– Dean Burmester 1/4 unit to win & E/W
– Jon Rahm 1/4 unit to win & E/W
– David Lipsky 1/4 unit to win & E/W
– Brandon Stone 1/4 unit to win & E/W

LECOM Health Challenge Betting Tips:

This is the Web.com Tour. I haven’t had any success with this yet FYI. I’m taking Rhein Gibson to win and E/W for a 1/4 unit and Denny McCarthy and Sebastian Cappelen to win and E/W for the same. With no cashes yet I don’t really feel confident in my Web.com picks so your call if you want to take them.


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!
