A small profit last week in the golf with the 45/1 Scott Piercy cashing.

He was a 1/4u to win & E/W bet.

He had a fantastic final day but Kang Sung-hoon was unstoppable. Piercy had a -7 final day and ended up 2 strokes off the leader which was great to ese.

Here’s the betting slip for that one:

This week in golf, we’ll be covering the 2019 PGA Championship.

Last year saw Brooks Koepka win it beating Tiger Woods by two strokes in an excellent tournament and let’s hope as they hit up the Bethpage Black Course, we see a similar exciting final day.

Note that E/W bets this week are Top EIGHT at Bet365. Sick deal sign up there if you aren’t there yet.

Let’s pop right into the betting tips:

PGA Championship 2019 Betting Tips:

Very open one based on the odds. Should be a good tournament. This is a very difficult course and the person who wins will truly feel like a champion. Driving accuracy will be a big factor here. The Par 5s will be a key spot for whoever wins – probably the easiest holes on the course.

Brooks Koepka: 10/1. Sometimes in golf, there is automatic bets that you have to make regardless of the odds – and Koepka winning the PGA Championship is one of them. The winner last year and Koepka is in excellent form coming into this one. He’s been performing extremely well at the Majors and looked solid last week. 1/2u to win.

Xander Schauffele: 25/1. One of the casualties due to Justin Thomas pulling out as his odds got shortened. 25/1 is one where I think I still have to play it. His majors history is exceptional and he’s someone who the pressure seems to bring out the best in him. His performance at the Masters was tremendous. I’m not a big fan of the odds and a lot of it is based on his Majors history and his Masters performance in general. 1/4u to win & E/W…and I was very tempted to go just 1/8 there.

Sergio Garcia: 45/1. His recent Majors history – 6 missed cuts in a row and no real great performance since he won – has to be a reason for this price but I love it. In form, performed well at this course previously. It’s very, very possible that his Majors rut will continue so I want you to be aware of that. However everythine else has me going with 1u to win & E/W.

Matt Kuchar: 50/1. Ugh. Kuchar and Majors just don’t go well do they? He goes into these tournaments and checks all the boxes and yet never bloody delivers. I hate it, but other than driving distance he’s got what it takes here and I begrudingly place a small bet on him at this price. 1/4u to win & E/W.

Francesco Molinari: 25/1. Honestly one of the best golfers out there, and an excellent price. Funny as it feels he is being overlooked this week both by the bookies and by the bettors. Maybe a post Masters reaction. I’m good to bet on him though – he’s proven how good he is and at this price is always worth a bet. 1/4u to win & E/W

Finally a 1/8u bet on the 100/1 Lucas Glover to win & E/W. Always like having a long shot bet and he’s a decent one.

Special Note to Americans: The majority of my bets rely on each-way betting which is an insurance bet on the golfer to place in the top 5. Unfortunately no American sportsbooks offer that option. I recommend betting at Bovada where you can choose to bet "To Win" and also "Top 5". Split your bet over both of those. Plus get $250 in Free Bets - Only available at Bovada.
