Matt Kuchar is our first golf tip of 2015 and he looks the best value at the head of the market.
Kuchar had another super consistent year in 2014 with 11 top 10’s in 24 starts and he will be looking to turn more of the top 10’s into victories in the coming season. This is a great place to start.
He goes well off a spell and has been successful at this time of the year.

Tim Clark’s win in the 2014 Canadian Open signalled a return to form after a long period in the doldrums and his 2nd place (after a play off) in the WGC HSBC Champions event in November suggests that his win was not a fluke.
He also goes well at this time of year illustrated by his 2nd place finishes in the 2011 and 2013 Sony Opens when badly out of form.
He is not a long hitter but wins in this event by Steve Stricker and Zach Johnson point to that not being a huge disadvantage at this track.
