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).

Hi guys,

Apologies for no tips for a couple of weeks. It was a mix of stuff. Everything to do with COVID put me off doing tips a bit I have to admit. I was hesitant to spend hours on the golf bets only for someone to pull out etc.

I was also up at the cottage over one tournament and the less time spent on the laptop the better. Then there was courses I wasn’t too familiar with etc – plus a lot of work on my plate when back from the cottage – and it was quite easy to take a pass on work!

Anyway back in business now and must admit I am quite pumped to dive into all the metrics and numbers and stats again. Especially coming off that 28/1 Webb Simpson win.

You’ll see some changes on the site over the next few days. Implementing a few different things. Also tracking all bets in a spreadsheet so everyone can see actual profits and not just the big wins I post on the site for complete transparency. May mean a paid membership area in the future – honestly not sure about that yet but if so it won’t be for a few months so no need to worry.

You’ll probably get a few articles in your inbox over the next few days with odds for the upcoming majors as a heads up.

This week I will cover The Memorial Tournament only.

The Memorial 2020 Betting Tips:

I can’t bring myself to back him at that price but man Justin Thomas on paper should take this tournament. Berger has potential here however I think his putting will be an issue. Also is he “rested” or “rusty” is the question. Woodland is the pick most people are making right now. I’m not convinced.

I went back and forth on Webb. His course form and lack of playing here recently was enough to pass on himeven though metrics wise, he should do well.

1/4u on Abraham Ancer at 45/1 to win & E/W. Ancer is performing extremely well and stands out on the numbers. He hasn’t performed well here in the past however made the cuts both times at least.

1/4u on Patrick Cantlay at 14/1 to win & E/W. If it wasn’t for his performance last week I’d skip this. At that price I still wonder if this is a good bet or not. It’s a hard task to defend the title however his past performances here have proven he can handle this course.

I felt it was between him and Dustin Johnson (who is also 14/1) and decided to go with Cantlay.

How To Place These Bets:

  1. I list "To Win & E/W for my bets". E/W stands for each-way which means "to place" and isn't available for Americans.
  2. Instead, you will split your betting amount. Half on "To Win" and half on "Top 5".
  3. You can do that at Bovada - and get $250 free in the process
  4. Click here to register an account at Bovada
  5. Under the "PGA Golf" section you will see both "Winner" and "Top 5" bets at the top. Split your bet in half on those.
  6. You can deposit to Bovada via credit card.

Those are my only two plays this week. There’s a lot of other possibilities out there like Matsuyama etc however I’d like to get watching from an analytic perspective again first.

If you are looking for an underdog pick I came close to Horschel. He is 80/1 and a very streaky golfer so his 7th place last weeks suggest he can do something here. In saying that it’s a very top-heavy field and last time he came Top 5 was the PGA Championship in September. Then you have to go back to 2018.

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!
