  1. The alternate event at the Puerto Rico Open always takes place the same week as the WGC. Whilst the top table have 4 guaranteed rounds in Florida, some of the rank and file, go to the Grand Reserve Country Club, looking for a career changing win, which comes with a rather nice 2 year PGA Tour exemption. It's worth a few $ undoubtedly. You also get a few European Tour guys who missed out on the WGC. So 2021 sees Pieters, Thomas and Poulter heading to Rio Grande Puerto Rico, whilst Branden Grace also looks to keep his momentum moving forward. A long, Par 72, coastal golf course, we are dea
  2. Riviera Country Club is a classical, tree-lined affair which has received some Tom Fazio updates over the years. The 10th hole is known globally, with the par-4 18th one of the iconic holes of world golf. At 7,300 yards it doesn't seem long, but the par-4s can be stretching and the two par-5s on the backside both play at a snidge below 600 yards. A shot-makers course where strategy and patience are key - even the winners here miss a minimum of 20 greens across the 4 days. So we need players who miss on the right-side and who can scramble well. Add fast poa annua greens to the mix, and you can
  3. No Pro-Am this year and 2 courses in the rotation with Host Course Pebble Beach needing no introduction. This tournament can throw-up some huge winning prices, but 54 holes on the classical US Open-venue, cold conditions and wind for the final 54 holes leads me to some better names. I managed to get on prior to the odds collapsing through DJ WD. Spieth 25/1 Molinari 28/1 Norlander 60/1 Kirk 90/1 Best of luck to all.

  5. The annual trip to Bay Hill and the Arnold Palmer Invitational.Mr Palmer may no longer be with us, but his tournament on his course is still in fine fettle. A strong field are in-attendance and this is always a title that the very elite want to capture, if they are playing well enough. A longish traditional par-72, the course is a classical, in the main tree-lined affair, but as it's in Florida, there is plenty of water in-play, A hard set of par-3s and par-4s are hard to score on, so taking advantage of the par-5s is essential. Power is advantage, but the course always ranks short in-terms of
  6. Wide open Par 72 by the coast in Puerto Rico. This is an alternate event alongside the WGC Mexico Championship and provides a good opportunity for motivated players in-attendance who can effectively guarantee 2 and a half years on the PGA Tour, with winner status. Greens are large and feature Paspalum. Previous winners here include Michael Bradley (x2), Scott Brown Chesson Hadley, Alex Cejka, Tony Finau, D.A. Points, Martin Trainer. Power off the tee has to be an advantage here, where high Greens in Regulation tends to get it done. I'm going for Patrick Rodgers (33/1), Maverick McNealy (3
  7. The Genesis Invitational is Tiger Woods' own tournament on the PGA Tour. With a short 120-man field, it's loaded with the very best players in the squad. Riviera is a stretching 7,322 yard, 35-36, Par 71 old-style golf course. Nicknamed ‘Hogan’s Alley’, it’s a classical course which features tight, tree-lined uneven fairways, plus fast green complexes that average 5,000 square feet and feature plenty of surrounding run-off areas for overly aggressive or wayward approach shots. Greens are a mix of Poa Annua / Bentgrass. I'm expecting firm conditions this week, which should see the course play t
  8. The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is a full-field event played over 3 different courses to allow such a large field including amateur partners. The iconic Pebble Beach Golf Links is the host course and all competitors play the track once before the 54-hole cut is made. At this point, the best 25 Pro-Am teams play Sunday with the top 65 professionals also playing the final round.Spyglass Hill Golf Club and the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club host the other 2 rounds of play. All courses are sub-7,000 yards in length, with the Shore Course playing as a rather unique Par 71 with thr
  9. Love this tournament. TPC Scottsdale, a great golf course in the desert, with huge crowds, a unique atmosphere, tight finishes and the famous 16th Stadium Hole. This really is ball-striking heaven, where putting has little consequence and hitting greens in regulation is critical. Short players who hit metronomic GIR can go very, very close, but eventually a longer hitter, with aggressive tendancies wins here. The par-5s are gettable - especially as this is at altitude - and there are a number of short par-4s including the driveable par-4 17th. I'm with Woodland 30/1, DeChambeau 33/1, Wat
  10. Freshly titled tournament on the PGA Tour, which to older readers was known as the Bob Hope Classic, latterly as the CareerBuilder Challenge Played at PGA West in California, around 3 courses this is a Pro-Am. Host course is the TPC Stadium course which is a Pete Dye design. Tournament Course and La Quinta are the other tracks. All courses are more than gettable and with no wind forecast expect -22 to -25 winning score. Birdies really are the currency. Big prices can win this with 5 of the last 10 winners at triple-digit odds. I'm on Scheffler @ 35/1, Vaughn Taylor @ 55/1, Carlos Ort
