Betting Tips for the Smart Punter

Padraig to continue summer form

The PGA tour rolls on to The Travellers Championship where it finds a new spot straight after the USPGA Championship. Plenty in with a chance and Padraig Harrington can continue his great form of the summer and reward us with a nice payout. Last week in the final major of the season we came up trumps again with a 14 point profit when Brandon Grace placed for us at a massive 60/1. Golf betting is going great with over 120 point profit in 4 months!

Our first pick for Thursday is South African Brandon Grace, who we put up last week and can cash in again for us. It’s a much weaker field and he looks to be on top of his game at present. This course is a fairly traditional sort and his tee to green style will fit very well in Conneticut. At Baltusrol Grace started slowly and then began his trademark late surge over the weekend. As long as he has a steady start it’s hadr to see him out of the places at the Travellers.

Padraig Harrington has gone under the radar in recent months but has been contending with the big boys on a consistent basis. He’s stated that his game is in top notch form and he’s happy, which is a great sign for backing a golfer. His aim is gold at Rio, but instead of resting up he’s always planned to get in the mix at Travellers and be well prepared for Brazil. This is a great chance to get the blood pumping and a value price can be taken on the Irishman who can belie the years and at 44 get back in the winners circle.

Another Irishman at a big price is Shane Lowry. He’s not been in the best form the last month but he is a class act and has come close to some huge wins this season, only 6 weeks ago he was runner up in the US Open with a great display. The last two majors of the season he missed cuts but at The Open he got the wrong side of the draw and last week only just missed the cut line, so he’s not playing too badly and a resurgence can be expected very soon.

Finally a small bet on Welshman Jamie Donaldson who is trying to crack the US tour. He’s taken his time to come back from injury and has been playing consistently well over the summer,, with some good displays especially over the first 2 rounds of majors. Last week he was in contention om the Saturday only to fall back and finish mid pack. If he can sort the weekend out then he has place chances at huge odds. I expect him to come good before the season finishes and even push for a Ryder Cup spot where his experience could be vital.
