Golf: Ace Venturer’s Top Tips


PATTON KIZZIRE (20-1) gave me a T4 in the Sandersons Farms last weekend, the seventh week on the run I’ve had a top-four finish. Hopefully in the next two weeks I can round off the European season with another winner.

This week the Tour stays in Shanghai for the penultimate tournament in the Final Series and with top man Rory McIlroy not taking part the chance is there for the next five on the Race to Dubai list to catch him and make it a thrilling shootout next week.

My first pick though is not one of those five. Paul Casey is virtually playing full-time on the PGA Tour and he’s had a great season over there, finishing 13th in the FedEX Cup His long hitting will suit the Lake Malaren course and with driving accuracy of 72% and GIR of over 81% he must be a good bet.

Another long hitter I like the look of is Patrick Reed. He has played in the Hong Kong Open three weeks ago and finished T3 with four sub-70 rounds and followed that up with a T7 in Shanghai last weekend.

He really is playing well at the moment and is worth a place bet. His driving accuracy for his last two tournaments is 50% (even I’m better than that) but he makes up for it with a GIR of over 83%.

When he won his first European Tour tournament in 2013 a lot was expected of Peter Uihlein but he has been very up and down since then.

He is one of the Tour’s longest hitters although not the most accurate but seems to enjoy playing out in the Far East. He has finished fourth, eighth and 13th in his last three tournaments. With a T13 and a T6 in his last two outings and 24 under par in his last six rounds he hopefully has returned to form.

I seem to have been tipping Matthew Fitzpatrick every week for the past few weeks but as he has five top-sevens in his last eight outings I can’t not pick him.

He averages 287 yards in driving distance and we all know his accuracy is high (71.2%). With GIR of 76.08% and in such a rich vein of form it is hard to leave him out.

Over on the PGA Tour in Mexico for the OHL Classic where another player I can’t leave out is the aforementioned Kizzire. In his first two starts on the PGA Tour he has finished T2 at the Shriners and T4 last week at the Sandersons Farms which is good going for someone in their rookie year.

Last week Kizzire came from well back in the third round to tie with the leaders for the start of the fourth. Like the look of the 29-year-old and will give him another shot here.

    Evening Ace – fancy seeing you here!

    Dubuisson who finished strongly last time out – think he is a hell of a golfer and everything seems right for him…28/1

    Can’t argue with your fancies Lowry and Uihlein – both look great bets and I see SL are keen on both as well – that’s more than enough for me.

    Cheers Ace.

    Done of a bit of research last night and cannot find fault with Peter Uihlein and Patrick Reed so going fairly big on them seems a big hitters/decent putters type course,

    And going to stick with Will Wilcox pulled out after 1st round last week stating he felt a bit under the weather and needed to be right for a big 2 weeks coming up…Like Justin Thomas was i see Will Wilcox a winner in the waiting.

    Read something somewhere about about Scott Hend 110/1 so a little each way on him too and little each way on Hend 1st round leader

    Got Wilcox 35/1 Betfred
    Got Reed 16/1
    and Uihlein 33/1
    Done all 3 in Each way doubles too.

    Good Luck guys.

      Craig Goldthorpe, just back from walking the dug and I see Steve Palmer is also on Uihlein. Ace and Palmer backing the same player – that’s good enough for me.
      I’m on.
