The Greenbrier Class & Irish Open 2017 Betting Tips
Once again a very frustrating week on the golfing front with both Ross Fisher and Bill Haas finishing 1 shot outside the places but more frustratingly Kyle Stanley wins a week after I tipped him for the Travelers to add to Brooks Koepka winning the US Open 1 week after I tipped him for the Fedex St Jude and Jason Dufner winning 2 weeks before that in the Memorial the week after I tipped him for the Dean & DeLuca. It should make this weeks pretty simple just back Bill Haas Billy Hurley III or Ricky Barnes as they were last weeks picks. Golf is a increasingly frustrating game to play let alone backing on it, but it's that challenge that brings me back each week with another attempt.
This week we have the Irish Open with defending Champion Rory McIlroy playing as the European Tour continues its migration to Birkdale for The Open. On the US PGA Tour we're at The Greenbrier Classic at The Old White TPC a par 70 course. Defending champion is Danny Lee who won this in 2015 last years event was cancelled due to severe flooding that caused considerable damage to the course. The course itself whilst being a par 70 the same as last weeks it's not quite so narrow so driving accuracy isn't so important but being a good putter and playing well currently are big attributes to success round here. When Danny Lee won in 2015 he won a 4 way playoff with David Hearn, Robert Streb and Kevin Kisner scoring low was critical with rounds of 62-63-64 being scored. First round leader Scot Langley started with a 62 followed it with a 69-74-65 and could only finish T13th. Any day you score 70+ you're losing ground on the field. In 2010 Stuart Appleby famously won here with a final round 59 to claim victory after 66-68-65 for 22 under par winning by 1 shot.
