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).

Sorry for no golf tips last week guys – I just wasn’t feeling it.

I sat down and looked at the data etc and I just wasn’t liking anything I looked at. When that happens I figure it’s best not to force myself – just take the week off and prepare for the next week.

It’s quite funny as with no bets on I barely paid attention last week. I tuned in for bits and pieces but I just didn’t really care.

Yet this week as I’m coming up with the tips and studying everything – man, I just get a rush. I think part of it is when you are placing the bets themselves – those 50/1 bets. And the payouts are so high yet you feel confident. Such a nice feeling.

I’m covering The Memorial Tournament this week, the Nordea Masters and even have a couple of tips in the LPGA and

Let’s get to it:

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.

The Memorial Tournament 2017 Betting Tips:

Course form isn’t the be all and end all for this tournament although it’s still a factor. It feels like a week where Dustin Johnson should come back and win but considering his odds at 6/1 – yeah, I’m gonna avoid that one! Crazy low odds although not much competition for him at the top.

Instead I’m looking at:

Keegan Bradley: Bradley hasn’t cracked the top 10 here yet however after a couple of missed cuts he seems to be sliding into form. He struggled a fair bit at the Players Championship but I felt he performed better at the Byron Nelson. He started off poor but got into a roll there. I’m going to take Bradley to win and E/W for a quarter unit.

Matt Kuchar: Not sure how we can’t take this former winner here. Nice price on Kuchar and he’s racked up multiple top 5 finishes here. He’s also in some pretty decent form as of late. I think he’s got a great chance of cracking the Top 5 and I’m going to take Kuchar to win and E/W for half a unit.

Stewart Cink: A fairly long shot bet for me on Cink. Cink has a good history at this course and he had that great performance at the D&D. I’m hoping he can roll with that momentum and come steaming into this one. It’s a risky one but I’m on him for a quarter unit to win & E/W.

Tony Finau: A couple of solid performances here in the past. The price is right for me plus I like Tonys performances this year. He’s only had the one Top 3 finish but you get the feeling he’s got a win in him. If it wasn’t for a bad start at the Byron Nelson he would have placed a lot higher. Not sure if this is where he can get rolling but the odds are enough for me to back him at a quarter unit to win and E/W.

Nordea Masters 2017 Betting Tips:

This one seems to be Henrik Stensons tournament to lose based on the 5/1 odds. Insane. I’m staying the hell away from him at this price. Instead I’m on:

Nicolas Colsaerts: The Belgian has been in fairly poor form for awhile however he closed off well at the BMW PGA Championship last week. After a 71-75 he came out flying and shot a 69-65 in the last two rounds. I love that sort of form and after the last two performances here – both in the top 10 – I’m quite happy to back him to win and E/W for half a unit.

Shoprite LPGA Classic 2017 Betting Tips:

Anna Nordqvist: Nordqvist has been performing fairly well this year including a win at the Bank of Hope Founders Cup where she put up that sick -11. She’s won this tournament twice in a row and I see no reason not to bet her at the 18/1 odds to win and E/W. Half a unit.

Rex Hospital Open 2017 Betting Tips:

This is the tour and I don’t have as much experience with it as I do the others. I’ll bet the same amount but you may wish to halve your bets.

I’m taking Miguel Angel Carballo to win and E/W for a quarter unit.

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!
