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).

Well that was quite the PGA Championship. It was a very thrilling round 4 in the way that golf can be – even though there was a clear leader throughout the day in Jason Day, he had multiple golfers clipping at his heels. He managed to prevail however, and get the win.

It was a beautiful win for Day who teared up on the 18th and that was a really cool sight to see – nice to see how much it meant to him.

We thankfully didn’t go home empty handed. Justin Rose couldn’t really get going on the final day, but he still got this cash for us:


And how exciting was Round 3 with our betting tip of David Lingmerth? The 100/1 candidate came very very close to a Top 6 finish but unfortunately dropped down.

Speaking of – we are going to be changing something here while I test things out. Usually, I suggest betting to win & e/w on the high odds players. However with the sportsbooks allowing us to cash out our bets – I’m going to be suggesting two separate bets – one to win, one top 5. We get slightly worse odds it looks like if Top 5 – for example 7/1 compared to 8/1 – but it may work out better in the future assuming we can cash out.

Alright so this week is the Wyndham Championship, and the big news is Tiger Woods is participating. Tiger is hoping to make the PGA post-season and to do that he’s pretty much gonna have to win here.

Let’s check out the odds:

Wyndham Championship 2015 Betting Odds:

  1. Brooks Koepka: 14/1
  2. Brandt Snedeker: 16/1
  3. Hideki Matsuyama: 20/1
  4. Adam Scott: 22/1
  5. Branden Grace: 22/1
  6. Billy Horschel: 25/1
  7. Justin Thomas: 25/1
  8. Webb Simpson: 25/1
  9. Martin Kaymer: 28/1
  10. Bill Haas: 28/1

Wyndham Championship Betting Tip #1: Brookes Koepka

We shall be taking the favourite, Brooks Koepka, to win and also a Top 5 Finish.

Koepka came out of the PGA Championship looking hot. Damn hot. We think momentum will be on his side here. He’s came in the top 20 the last 6 tournaments he has played in, and while his history here was only a 38th placed finish we’re going to bank the momentum.

Speaking of momentum – Koepka is 14/1 but is also 25/1 to be the first round leader. As we’re backing momentum we’ll be doing a half unit bet on Koepka to win, half unit bet on Top 5, and a quarter unit bet on Koepka to be the first round leader.

Bet: You can bet all of these, including first round leader, at https://www.GTBets.com.

Wyndham Championship Betting Tip #2: Webb Simpson

We’ll be throwing half a unit on Webb Simpson – a quarter on him to win, another quarter on him to finish in the top 5.

Simpson has an excellent history at this course with 3 top 5 finishes and 5 top 20 finishes in the last 5 years. He’s not playing too well at the moment and it’s been awhile since he broke the top 20 – but with a course like this we like him to start slowly but warm to it and as long as he gets a solid day 1 – to get better and better as the tournament goes on.

Bet: Bet Webb Simpson at https://www.GTBets.com.

Wyndham Championship Betting Tip #3: Carl Petterson

We’ll be making our 3rd and final bet on Carl Petterson. he’s got great course form, and his current form isn’t too shabby either. He’s been up and down but with two top 5 finishes, we’ll take him to win and place.

Bet: Best odds for Petterson are at Bovada for Americans.

Wyndham Championship Fantasy Golf:

We’re going to start doing fantasy golf again. We’ve been so busy with tips we haven’t focused on that but hoping to change it. We won’t do separate articles at this time but maybe in the future.

This time around we’re going with:

  1. Carl Pettersson
  2. Will Wilcox
  3. Brooks Koepka
  4. Brandt Snedeker
  5. Jhonattan Vegas
  6. Troy Kelly

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!
