Golf: SHRINERS HOSPITALS FOR CHILDREN OPEN
free bets bet 365

By Vince Eager

 

The PGA Tour moves to Nevada for the second stop of the 14/15 season and i’m glad we kept our powder dry (WTF does that mean?) last week as the winner – Sang Moon Bae – looked impossible to predict.

 

TPC Summerlin is an easy scoring track with winning scores of -24, -24 and -23 in the last three renewals so whoever wins will have a barrel load of birdies under their belt come the pointy end of round four on Sunday. 

 

We will ease ourselves into the season with a confident bet on a reasonably short priced player and a few speculative stabs at 100/1+ players with a bit of course form and the ability to get on a good birdie roll.

Scottish-ish Martin Laird will have gone in plenty a golf punter’s notebook last week as he hit the ball very well to finish 3rd and with a better performance on the par 5s (he was -3 for the four rounds, the winner was -11) he would probably have won the event.

He won this in 2009 and finished 2nd in 2010.

Spencer Levin has struggled with injury over the last few years but a 21st placed finish last week suggests he could be on the way back to full fitness and he has a 4th and a 5th placed finish in this event in the last five years. When he was playing his best golf a few years back he proved he could make plenty of birdies. He needs to keep his fiery temperament in check when things don’t go his way.

Heath Slocum

Heath Slocum is another play, like Levin, that is looking to return to his best form after a couple of years in the doldrums.

He’s missed the cut in three of his last four attempts here but in 2012, barring a round of 74 in round 3 he could well have won this with other rounds of 67, 67 and 65.

In his last PGA Tour appearance he shot -15 in the low scoring Wyndham Championship and also shot a 64 on the Web.com Tour recently.
