Time to get your golf on…

JT Poston placed for us last time at 35/1 (1/5 the odds 7 places) in the Wyndham Championship, so another positive return from your stakes.

BMW Championship (17th-20th Aug)

The big guns are at the head of the market this week in the BMW Championship in Chicago. Rory Mcllroy, Scottie Scheffler and John Rahm are all set to feature and attempt to add another title to their name. Priced at 15/2, 8/1 and 9/1 with Paddy Power, they’re short enough but it’s not surprising that they dominate the top of the betting.

It is however easy to pick holes in each of them as Rory has shown some inconsistency of late in his game, Scheffler is still having putting issues and John Rahm hasn’t put four solid rounds together since his Masters win.

Patrick Cantlay is next in the betting and is a back to back winner of the tournament who would make history by winning the event for a third time in a row. Cantlay is playing great golf and you wouldn’t rule him out at 12/1 to go close again.

Viktor Hovland and Max Homa are definitely players to watch as they can thrive at this course and be ready to pounce on the final day. Both Hovland and Homa are driving well, and their short game is very impressive. They won’t be far away on Sunday at 18/1 and 25/1 respectively.

One player who is showing a return to his top game is Jordan Spieth. Finishing tied 6th last week at the Fed Ex St Jude Championship, Spieth definitely has the capabilities to navigate the course well this week and be in contention come the final round. He’s one to follow at 28/1.

It would also be foolish of us not to put up a mention for Lucas Glover at 40/1. Glover was a player we tipped up last month and since then has delivered back to back wins on the Tour and this return to outstanding form and consistency and will be putting pressure on the US Team for a place in the Ryder Cup later this year.

Our Selections

Viktor Hovland @ 18/1 with Betfair Sportsbook (1/5 the odds, 6 places) – 1pt each-way

Viktor Hovland is playing solid golf and this week could well be his time to shine. He is likely to enjoy this course and, with accurate driving, his short game can put him in the frame on Sunday. He’s definitely a player to side with this week.

Jordan Spieth @ 28/1 with BetWay (1/5 the odds, 6 places) – 1pt each-way

Spieth is showing a lot of confidence in his play and played really well last week. Continual improvement and secure putting this week can definitely see Spieth get in the frame and, at 28/1, it’s a nice price to get involved.
