GOLF: ACE VENTURER’S BETTING TIPS

usmastersgolf

I DON’T know what I have to do get a win these days. Last weekend Bernd Wiesberger had a two-stroke lead going into the final round and only managed a two-over par round to lose out to Anirban Lahiri – the fourth time in three weeks one of my selections has finished second.

Hopefully we can come up with a winner this week – instead of a place – at the AT&T Peeble Beach Pro-Am in Northern California. The tournament takes part over three courses at the Peeble Beach Golf Links, the last of the tournaments that utilise multiple courses this season.

Nick Watney seems to be coming back to some form with a T7 at Torrey Pines last week, even although he had a poor weekend, and a 14th finish at the Humana three weeks ago. He’s missed three cuts from seven starts this season but the Californian has two top-10 finishes at the AT&T and I expect him to go close again.

Was Jordan Spieth’s missed cut at last week just a blip? I hope so. He finished T7 at the Waste Management at Phoenix a couple of weeks ago and was T4 here last year after a disastrous six over in the third round. His driving accuracy is over 56% with GIR at 65.5% and he is 11th with strokes gained tee to green so hopefully he’s got over last week and can do the business here.

Over at the True Thailand Classic I like the look of Prom Meesawat. After a top-20 finish last week Meesawat is the second highest-ranked Thai golfer in the world. Finished third in the Asian Tour Order of Merit last year with a win and six top-10 finishes. He also finished tied third here last year at the Asian Tour’s Kings Cup. Meesawat is well worth a small each-way bet last year

Peter Uihlein is a young American who has spent the last two years on the European Tour and done pretty well for himself. His driving accuracy has improved from last year (to be honest it couldn’t have been much worse at 39%), and his GIR has improved nearly 10 per cent to 73.7%. Expect good things from him this year.

Recommended Bets

Peter Uihlein 1pt ew (25-1, sportingbet)

    Ace your surely going to get a win soon seeing as you have come so close. I’m going with all your tips this week so lets hope it is a good one. Just wondering would you be able to put up your tips a day earlier so we could nab the better prices?

      paul, Ace’s tips go up on Tuesday which is early enough. You won’t get the likes of Racing Post tips to the Wednesday so prices won’t change much until then.

    I’ve got to stick with Jimmy Walker this week.Albeit, he fluffed his lines on the last day on Sunday, I cant see him being out the top 6 this Sunday( Paddypower first 6 )…Over in Thailand, im going with Marc Warren,who carded a final round of 68 last Sunday in Malaysia to move up the board to 9th for top 10 place….

    Jimmy Walker 8/1 & Marc Warren12/1….5 EW Double @Paddypower.

    I asked a question about Watson winning the Masters last week but the thread disappeared the next day as it was a way down the list. 16/1 EW for a top 5 finish. Loves Augusta. Anybody think that’s a good bet?

      Jordan, I think I answered you last week. Course form is important but form leading up to the even has to be considered too – so I won’t be making any outright bets until nearer the time.

      • Jordan 2 years ago

        Thanks Mr F. I only really follow the majors but wondered how much they can vary from year to year. I’ll keep an eye on proceedings up to it.

          Jordan, McIlroy will be a fairly short priced favourite for the Masters but I’ll be looking at a couple of decent each-ways.

    Mickelson at 28’s too I’m liking.

    This is my first post on aces section though followed the sight for some time.I do an each way dbl each week usually the European player is up there but never the American tour player.This week I’ve taken Unclean as it’s one of aces tips and I think he’s a strong player for that field.Took him in with Chris Kirk anybody any thoughts on his chances? also took Meesawat 1st round leader think it might be a better choice than outright.Has anyone advice on 3ball betting I never seem to get anywhere.

      linfieldaces, I hate 3ball betting because anyone can have one good round and of course a tie beats you. Prefer 2balls when they are on offer.

  9. linfieldaces 2 years ago

    Uihlein I meant though Unclean has a great chance haha

    As always I have 2 tips and one Outsider for this week’s A&At tournament. Last week’s tournament was all about consistency being the key and the ability to handle low scoring course which is why a 4 way tie was how we ended, this course is all about putting which is why day and walker head the betting. I don’t like backing repeat players to win so start this week with

    Jimmy walker 8/1 he is the defending champion and in great form this season

    Dustin Johnson 16/1 this guy is all about consistency and has posted 5 top 5 finishes at this course recently so is great ew shout

    My Outsider last week choi started really well and was 2 under after half dozen holes but this week am going bigger

    Bryce molder 100/1 not in great form but has performed really well here over the years and I love a horse for course in golf. 4 finishes in top 12 so is a good shout ew with 6 places at paddy power

  12. linfieldaces 2 years ago

    Cheers Mr F think il curveball the 3ball bets from now on.It’s starting to frustrate.Just like to say you’ve a great site here some very good tips each day.Been a follower since the bonkers bet days in the Record touched for afew of them dazzlers at the time.Hope you keep up the good work as it’s much appreciated.Good luck all with the golf over next few days.

  13. linfieldaces 2 years ago

    Has anybody any thoughts on Furyk beating Watney in their 2days today?Think Furyk does well on these courses.Any views greatly appreciated.

  14. SWJL 2 years ago

    Will be on Jimmy Walker – win only. Hunter Mahan is a more attractive each way bet at 28/1. Will also have a few pennies on a real outsider – Colt Knost at 150/1.

  15. Graham 2 years ago

    Shorter course will suit Spieth this weekend. Not my favourite event this week tbh.
