Last time out with the coupon

A frustrating week and our first blank in a while. Albeit, only 1 of our 6 picks missed the cut. Will Zalatoris actually hit it ok on Thursday and Friday, yet missed the cut due to the familiar issues with his rather long, short stick.

Our 100/1 shots of Lashley & Lipsky both flirted with places over the weekend. Finishing -18 & -17 respectably, I can’t really complain with the process. They both played well, but scoring was easy and they ended up a few shots away from picking up 20u each!

Until that bunker shot on 13, JT looked well in the mix. I certainly will be back on JT at The PGA Championship this week. He finished 5th but I didn’t shoot EW on him.

Therefore, tied in with a poor week on The DP World Tour. Following not 1, 2 but 3 Connor Syme collapses (will keep tabs on him!). We have a -9u week and now are only +3u on the year. The downswing continues but again on The PGA Tour, our picks play well. As Arsenal Manager Mikael  Arteta would say, trust the process.

The betting spreadsheet has been updated on The Betting Blog, and we roll ahead into the 2nd Major of the year!

The PGA Championship

To Oaklahoma where The PGA Championship will be held for the 104th time at Southern Hills Golf Club. As a European, it’s safe for me to say that The PGA Championship or USPGA Championship is the least-watched of the 4. 

However, I believe there are many reasons to tune in. Firstly the PGA Championship is the strongest field in golf. A maximum of 156 golfers compete for the Wanamaker Trophy and qualify through a meritocracy based format. The current criteria to date included (from Wikipedia)

From a betting perspective, the PGA Championship you will find the most amount of “long-shots.” For example, even last year, Phil Michelson won at Kiawah Island and was 200/1 at some bookmakers. Looking through the list, Martin Kaymer & Keegan Bradley won in 2010 and 2011 which was their major “breakthroughs.” Who also can forget Y.E Yang holding off Tiger Woods in Minnesota in 2009.

The point is, that major breakthroughs and slightly longer – shots can compete in this event. My only reluctance to fill my card with players in the 80 – 120 /1 mark is the course. I do believe the set-up will ensure the cream rises. Particularly those who are strongest from 120 yards and in.
