Desert Classic

Recommended Posts

Birdiefest at PGA West in the desert in La Quinta, California. You need to be hitting + 72% of Greens, convert 40% of holes to win and be tactical, especially on the host Stadium Course, where there are a number of tough holes which can become very expensive for those who attack rather than play tactical golf. Played across 3 courses, as a Pro-Am, the Desert Classic is a very open betting event, which is always difficult to pin down. However the last 3 winners have played in Hawaii and played well. Dufner was 9th at Waialae, Swafford was 12th at Waialae and Rahm last year was 2nd at Kapalua. All can drive the ball very nicely from Strokes Gained perspective and you have to place all 3 of them in the ball-striker category, although 'Rahmbo' is naturally a class above. 

I have gone for win only Rahm at 7/1, with supporting each-way bets on Ancer at 40/1, List at 50/1 and Conners at 66/1.
