He’s back in the winner’s circle after backing Webb Simpson
Words: Nick Fleming
Good to be back with a winner last week as Webb Simpson at 80/1 wins the Players Championship at Sawgrass.
The European event this week is the Belgium knockout hosted by Thomas Pieter’s and his wife, it’s too much of a novelty event to get involved with, so we concentrate on the Byron Nelson in the USA.
Byron Nelson Classic:
bet before midday Thurs
watch from 230pm Thurs
weather very hot, possible wind over weekend.
1 pt win Adam Scott 26/1: He’s switched backed to his belly putter which is outlawed if you use your belly, Scott holding a few inches away??? looks dodgy to me but he looked happier on the greens!!
1 pt win Beau Hossler 35/1: young American rookie who lost in play off to Ian Poulter a month ago -he’s a player I follow.
1 pt win Brandon Grace 25/1: this links style course will suit the South African, he’s a class player who knows how to win.
1 pt win Ryan Palmer 66/1: a local player who like Jordan Spieth is a member here, he rarely wins but often contends, I just have a feeling about this week??
1/2 pt win Andrew Putnam 94/1: another American rookie has made 5 cuts in a row and likes playing in the wind on links courses!!
1/2 pt win Peter Uihlein 64/1: just like Brooks Koepka, this American started playing the European tour, he is impressing lately and has taken the PGA tour in his stride!!
