Golf: St Jude Classic
free bets bet 365

By Vince Eager

 

The St Jude Classic at TPC Southwind is the now traditional last stop on tour before next week’s US Open.

 

TPC Southwind is a tough par 70 with trees and water keeping scores on the high side. Course form is an advantage although debutants have won in recent times. Both bombers and those that play with a premium on accuracy can win here.

Billy Horschel struggled a little to maintain his form after winning the FEDEX Cup last year but with $11,000,000 burning a hole in your pocket I guess that’s understandable.

He is coming into form nicely now however – i’ll be looking to back him for the US OPEN should he be well placed here at the halfway point – and his current form figures of 17, 13 and 11 and just the sort of progressive numbers that get me excited. Add those numbers to his course form figures of 72, 10 and 6 and i’m veritably foaming at the mouth here.

Ricky Ponting looky likey Brian Harman finished 6th here last year and instantly went into the notebook for this year. He led going into the final round and could well have won with a bit more luck. He has two top 10’s in his last four events.

We’ve come close to collecting a couple of times with bets on Shawn Stefani and he’s worthy of a return to the staking plan this week. He finished 7th here in 2013 where, like Harman in 2014, led going into round four. His current form is pretty good with a 9th, 19th and 40th in his last three starts.

Our final bet is in the 1st round leader market with Camillo Villegas. he seems to do well here no matter what his current form is like with course form figures of 8, 3, mc, 10, 11. he is not in sparkling form but did finish 40th last week.
