US Open 2017 : Free Golf Betting Tips
Lets start with a look back at last weeks golf betting tips where it's fair to say our PGA tour picks for the St Jude Classic didn't have a great week. Shawn Stefani missed the cut and both Noh & Tway never able to make any in roads to finish T30th & T34th 8 & 9 shots off the eventual winner Daniel Berger who was successfully defending his title. He came from 4 shots off the lead to whilst on the European Tour at the Lyoness Open from Austria the winner Dylan Frittelli came in with a last round -5 to snatch victory. In fact all of the top 5 finishers came from way back with sub 70 rounds. The only one of the over night leaders to keep themselves in the top 6 was our pick Johan Carlsson who managed a final day -2 to finish outright 6th rewarding us with a 150-1 place plus the 14-1 Top 10 finish. A healthy return on our free betting tips of 53.5pts for a profit of 35.5pts on the week.
This week there is just the one comp to get stuck into so our free golf betting tips will be at the US OPEN from Erin Hills in Wisconsin, its a new course for the PGA tour and at in excess of 7700yds its the longest course ever played on the tour beating Chambers Bay by over 100yds. It won't play that long everyday as the 15th can be reduced to a driveable par 4 should they wish but with par 5s in excess of 600yds and with unbelievably punishing fescue grass just 5yds off the fairways length and accuracy is required. Other factors to consider is the forecast wet weather for the first 2 days should that happen then maybe even the long hitters won't get there in 2 on the par 5s so as we have no previous form to go on on the course we really are some might saying guessing but I'd like to call it more of an educated annalysis. The question is do you need just a long hitter or do you need a good putter as by all accounts the greens are in fantastic condition but are undulating and being in the right places is important which brings in the players with good short games from 100yds in. So with that all said you need a long hitter with good short game from 100yds in who is a great putter well the only player who fits that bill is the Tiger Woods of the 2000's but he doesn't exist anymore to I hope the short list I've come up with cover most bases with a range of abilities and prices.
US Open Golf betting Tips
JON RAHM 20-1 8 PLACES 1/5 Odds Skybet,PP,Coral,BFSB
His strengths are his length off the tee but equally he's very accurate and in his short time on tour has proven to have both putting ability and nerve all of which will be tested to the max here this week.
ADAM SCOTT 33-1 6PLACES 1/4 Odds Ladbrokes
Has the all round game when he's at his very best which so far in 2017 he's shown in glimpses but hasn't been able to string 4 good rounds together but this Masters Champion has all teh right credentials to pull it off this week and has Steve Williams back on the bag.
MATT KUCHAR 66-1 8PLACES 1/5 Odds Coral
When his putter gets hot he is one of the very best and if anyone deserves a major then its Kuch.
JIMMY WALKER 125-1 8PLACES 1/5 Odds Coral,Skybet
Had health issues so the toughness of 4 days round here could be his undoing but if all goes well then he is very capable of winning another major.
BRANDT SNEDEKER 100-1 8PLACES 1/5 Odds Skybet,Coral Not the longest off the tee but has already shown that windy conditions don't bother him, when hot his putting is the best bar none except maybe an in form Speith.
GRAEME McDOWELL 150-1 8PLACES 1/5 Odds Skybet,Coral
Past US Open Champion who isn't the longest but if the wind gets up and conditions suit a grinder who has a good short game and nerve then Graeme could be the one to capitalise on conditions. If it becomes a bombers course then Graeme will struggle but the forecast does suggest wind and rain for days 1 & 2 so some of the best players in the world that aren't familiar with such conditions will struggle but Graeme shouldn't.
