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).

It was another nice winning week in the golf as I nailed it with my Rory pick.

Often we go with “To win & E/W” here for less odds if they don’t win – but this time I said no to that. Instead I said that in the WGC HSBC Champions, Rory McIlroy would get in a Top 5 place but NOT win it.

And I was correct as Rory did exactly that, and at 1/1 odds got us the nice cash for profit.

Pretty happy that I called that one exactly. Felt bloody good I must say. Even though the payout wasn’t huge it was good to know I was on track with that and hopefully you guys jumped on it as well and got the win.

Before I get to this weeks tip I’d like to ask you guys to take 5 minutes to sign up at an online sportsbook I promote. See – I do this for free every week. I spend hours working on the tips then I write them all up and share them here. It can be a lot of work plus added pressure knowing you guys are reading this and following the tips.

I don’t want to charge for these tips. I want to keep them free. So please take 5 minutes and sign up at one of the below sportsbooks:

If you don’t deposit no problem but be sure to check them out. If you sign up it makes me look good and can help me negotiate deals with them, but if you deposit they actually give me cash. It’s only $50 per depositor but it’s better than nothing so I’d really appreciate you doing that.

Thanks guys.

Alright on with this weeks tips:

Shriners Open Betting Tips:

Nick Watney returned from his nasty back injury early and had a respectable 35th place finish at the Safeway Open. It’s way too early to say how his back holds up and how his form is – but at 80/1 I’m up for giving him a chance. I’m betting a quarter unit on Watney to win and E/W. He has performed exremely well here in the past and it wouldn’t surprise me to see a similar finish.

Call me crazy but I’m betting a quarter unit on Smylie Kaufman to repeat. There was just something magical about the way he performed on this course last year and I’m going to back him here.

One of the most in-form golfers at the moment who is playing here is Ryo Ishikawa and while he’s probably outclassed he has performed well at this course once in the past with 2nd place finish and he’s also worth a quarter unit bet. I got on him this morning at 70/1 and he’s already dropped to 50/1 so clearly some people believe the same as me. I still see value at 50/1 though.

Finally a small quarte runit bet on Martin Laird to win and E/W. A previous winner it’s been a tough course for him in recent years but I was pleasantly surprised by his performance at the Safeway Open and think he’s coming in with some confidence.


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!
