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).

One more week until the Masters!

I can’t wait. Not from a betting perspective – the Majors are always that much more challenging – but just from a viewing perspective. It’s a very open tournament and there are a lot of possibilities.

Things will be tricky too because I’m away this weekend. Head off to the States tomorrow and don’t get back until late Tuesday.

So I’ll 100% be doing my Masters 2019 Betting Tips on the Wednesday. Don’t worry however I will prioritize it and it will be out Wednesday morning.

Last week we threw some wet paper towels at the wall and hoped one stuck – it didn’t. Joel Dahmen came close in the Corales but just couldn’t do it.

This week we’ve got the Valero Texas Open. Let’s get to it:

Valero Texas Open 2019 Betting Tips:

I’d love to back Finau here but man what a crappy price for him. Jason Kokrak is extremely tempting and I may regret not backing him – with the amount of top 10s he has been racking up lately you just feel a win is due. Just not great putting though.

Ryan Palmer: 55/1. Always a consistent performer here. Rarely breaks the Top 5 though which is disappointing. He did well at the Honda although isn’t very consistent at the moment. This is one where you might want to look at a Top 10 finish for him. Legitimately it’s probably a coin flip whether he makes the top 10 or not. 5/1 odds on that one. I’ll go with 1/8u to win & E/W and 1/8u on a Top 10 Finish.

Wyndham Clark: 110/1 Long shot bet. His driving distance is stellar and that can be a factor at this course. That’ll help him on the Par 5s where he ranks 10 this year and this course – Par 5s can be a factor. Never played here before but wouldn’t surprise me to see him battling assuming he can sign the scorecard correctly. 1/8u to win & E/W.

D.J. Trahan: 160/1. Another long shot bet. Just one of those where when I ran the numbers he kept popping up and at the price, I’ve got to take a bet on him. 1/8u to win & E/W.

Aaron Baddeley: 50/1 Solid price for Baddeley who has some solid performances here and also looks to be playing decent enough golf. 1/8u to win & E/W

See you all next week for the Masters and hopefully one of the above at least gets a Top 5 so we go in hot.


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!
