It’s time for some golf betting tips and this week we have two really good events to look forward to. In this week’s edition I am going to be covering the RSM Classic in Bermuda on the PGA Tour and on the DP World Tour, we have the Tour Championship over in Abu Dhabi.
I have a squad lined up for each event and I have already backed them as singles, but I am also going to get into some small stake EW doubles across the two tours as well. In fairness, it has been a poor few weeks for my golf selections, but I am hoping we can finish the season strong this week.
For this week’s best prices, and a huge eight places, I have an exclusive sign up offer from William Hill for you. If you bet £10 you can get £30 in free bets, which is a great way to cover all of your golf options this week.
The RSM Classic takes place at Sea Island Golf Club on the Bermuda grass. I have a five-man squad lined up for you and there is some really nice value on offer in the field this week. The course is a Par 70, it takes place over 7,005 yards and this is a very scorable event.
The main asset you need at Sea Island is to be strong in your approach play to the greens because they are most definitely not straightforward. Even a player that is using their irons and wedges well wouldn’t be surprised to see a few shocks at the top of the leaderboard this week.
My strongest selection for the RSM is a player that has been promising to break his maiden in recent weeks and that is Justin Suh at 33/1. I have been so close to putting him up for the last two events he played in, which were the Zozo and the WWT, where he finished 10th and then fourth respectively, so I think it could be Justin Suh’s time to win his first PGA Tour title.
He’s up to world number 64 now, and is probably one of the highest ranked players on Tour that have yet to win a title yet, but he has plenty of time to put that right. He shot a massive 24 under at the WWT last week, so he must be full of confidence. He is a superb Iron player and his putting has improved immensely. I’m convinced that it’s Justin’s time to shine.
Harris English hasn’t played since finishing tenth in the BMW Championship and I think coming here fresh is going to do him a big favour. He is a very good long game player, which he put to good use earlier in the year when he finished second in the Wells Fargo for us at 150/1, so he owes us nothing.
I’m sure his extended break has been factored into the price here, because as a four-time PGA Tour winner, he deserves to be much shorter in the market. He’s very well suited to this course and his layoff doesn’t concern me at all. In fact, I think Harris English will come back firing from the get go and play really well.
Taylor Pendrith is way overpriced based on his ability, but perhaps that’s because he hasn’t managed to break his PGA Tour maiden yet, despite being in position to win on multiple occasions. I’m not going to let that put me off though, because he hasn’t bottled it at any point, he has simply been outplayed whilst seeing out the events in decent enough form.
On the plus side, Taylor Pendrith has a very good long game and his iron play is strong too and if he can put it all together this week, he has excellent potential to make the places at a very backable each way price.
I’ve always liked Chad Ramey as a player and he sprang to mind as a suitable candidate for this event earlier in the week. He will need to be playing at his best to figure here, but there is no reason why he shouldn’t, as he shot 10 under in June at the Travellers Championship.
In fact he has played pretty nicely in his last three events, so that form should give him plenty of confidence this week and his consistently good course management will stand him in good stead. Once he finds his groove it does tend to last for a while and he definitely looks a tad overpriced at 100/1.
My final selection for the RSM is Henrik Norlander who has plenty to prove, but he does offer some nice credentials in the stats department. Although he missed his last two cuts, once he is dialled in he always manages to get on the PGA Tour leaderboards and his best performance this year came in the Sandersons last month, where he finished second in a playoff.
He can be a little inconsistent, but he offers hope in the sense he has played well this year and he has been making up plenty of shots in his approaches to the green, so he isn’t without a chance and at a massive price too. I’m sure there’s a big event in this lad somewhere and I’m happy to give him a chance this week.
The Tour Championship is the final event on the DP World Tour calendar and what a lineup we have in store here. It takes place at Jumeirah Golf Estate in Abu Dhabi over 7675 yards and the weather forecast looks very friendly this week so we could be in for a treat.
Viktor Hovland, Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm are all fighting it out for favouritism and have obvious chances this week, but at those prices, we have to try and take them on. It is going to take a real class player to win here and I think that I have a really strong four-man squad lined up.
My strongest selection for the Tour Championship is two-time event winner and world number eight, Matthew Fitzpatrick. He won this event in 2016 and 2020 and has been in fine form once again this season.
You can get 14/1 about Matthew Fitzpatrick and outside of the top three in the market, he has to be the best value pick this week. He has become very consistent, finishing second, ninth, third and 18th in four starts, then going on to win the Alfred Dunhill Links last time out.
He is a nine-time DP World Tour winner, a two-time PGA Tour winner, and he is the 2022 US Open Champion. At 14/1, I think Matt Fitzpatrick holds massive value for this week’s event.
Adrian Meronk has impressed me so much this year and makes the squad again this week at 28/1. He has won four DP World Tour titles in just 15 months, bringing him up to world number 46, but what I like most about Adrian Meronk is that nothing seems to faze him, even if he gets off to a slow start.
He was devastated not to get picked for the Ryder Cup team, but this seemed to spark something in him, as he quickly went on to win the Andalucia three weeks ago with a very smart performance.
I think he is dangerous to write off this week and his game has just got better as the season has gone on. The 28/1 on offer for Adrian Meronk is extremely generous considering his ability and I expect a bold bid from him this week.
There has been an abundance of talent coming out of Sweden this year and 25-year-old Vincent Norrman has become one of my favourite players on Tour. He has enjoyed a fine season, winning on both the DP World Tour and the PGA Tour and he surely has even more to come.
I think there is still time for him to pick up one more prize this season and his 55/1 price tag offers a lot of value in my opinion. He doesn’t mind where he plays or the type of track either, he is just so consistent and shows more improvement every time I see him play.
I think to take on the top three in the market here, you need a bit of flare and Vincent Norrman can definitely mix it with the best players in the world. He is superb with his irons and if they are on point this week, then he is going to give himself plenty of birdie opportunities.
I think there is some potential for a surprise package to make the places this week and Dan Bradbury has a chance at a big price. He won the Joburg Open this time last year and he has found his form again in recent weeks, having finished sixth in the Spanish Open and then 13th in the Andalucia Masters.
He is definitely a player that thrives when he is feeling confident and of all the longshots in the field, Dan Bradbury could easily sneak into the places at a whopping price.
