Betting PGA this week at the St. Jude Classic requires one to understand the dynamics of what the course has in store for the players this week. Good morning HRWager fans as we seek more stability after the surprise win of William McGirt at the Memorial. We will seek to take out some of the fluctuation of golf investment with the TPC Southwind characteristics this week. So lets us get down to the process of plucking profit on the PGA product for the June 9th start of this tournament.
Betting PGA : 2nd Shot is Key
Before all other considerations, the driver stats are not all that important this week. Last year’s top ten on this course did not rank high in fairways hit or drive distance. Instead, greens in regulation ruled the roost as the key quantifier to understand here. Not the strongest field here as this tourney precedes the US Open by a week. Instead it is used as a rallying point for some players just outside the bubble. So while we will consider them, their onus on success will not weigh as heavy as the 150 to 200 yard range iron ability of our free picks.
Who to look at?
When Phil Mickelson is one of the favorites, the field strength is not the greatest. His iron play will be a compliment to the course. Past performances in the last three years including a third also bolster his case. Instead of futures, elect for heads up consideration in the first round only for investment here. What we have here is a consideration that is down the pecking order on the tour in terms of heads up. Boo Weekley vs Russell Henley will not make Sportscenter but has a distinct advantage. His drying up driver will not hurt Boo here as his stellar iron play makes this one of his best outs on the tour. Go with the tournament length in this heads up profit for your moneymaker of the week.
Lots of television coverage to rail your bets home this weekend. Also it allows one last look at some of the players as they prep for the US Open. Hone your skills at St Judes when we pour it on at the major next week. Good fortune in your sports investment today and we will see you tomorrow here at the HRW.
