WGC-Bridgestone Free Picks from HRWager is having to deal with scheduling quirks. This tournament would not be held until later in the year but the Olympics has thrown a kink into things. The PGA did not get the European contingent on board so the event in France is also offering ranking points. As a result, the field is somewhat diluted because of this. Rory is not here so we will look at who is in and who is staying on the continent. Let us get down to plucking profit from the PGA this week at the HRW.
WGC-Bridgestone : Long Par 70
One can see the importance of this event by the amount of live air time that the Golf Channel is willing to dedicate to it. Thursday and Friday get the 1:30 PM to ^PM treatment so there is even more opportunity to rail your investments for this one. Firestone Country Club measures at approx 7,400 yards and this region is drier than normal. Lots of carrying on the fairway will influence the play. This is going to be a tough task for the longest par 70 course on the tour. Look for fairway accuracy and long iron play to be keys here.
Grinders Will Pay Off Here
While Jason Day (+495), Dustin Johnson (+700’s), and Jordan Spieth (+935) duke it out for the title and your futures attention, the heads up wagering aspect is very exploitable in this one. Jason Dufner is pitted against Schwartzel. This is very good for Dufner fans. He hits greens like one tosses darts. Two top tens out of last three times here gives us the tangible edge for the tournament heads up matchup here. The other golfer to invest in is Kevin Na. He has already gotten some attention as the price on him is -120. Two Top 25’s here in his recent history plus a proclivity to do well on par 70 courses gets our recommendation to invest in Kevin Na.
Great entertainment value to go with our two heads up recommendations. This deep field gives you excellent futures value for those that like to take the big swing at profit. Good fortune to the golf investors this week and we will see you on Thursday here at HRWager.
