IT was another three places for Ace last week on either side of the Atlantic. Kristoffer Broberg hit a final-round 62 to finish joint second in the Made in Denmark tournament and at one stage looked the likely winner.

In North Carolina Paul Casey finished T3 at the Wyndham and Brooks Koepka earned a payout with bookies doing top six. So not a bad week following on from an excellent return at the USPGA.

Here's Ace's latest thoughts. He says: This week is the start of the FedEx play-offs at the Plainfield Country CLub, Edison, New Jersey. The weather looks to be dry with temperatures rising to upper 80s so it's not going to be a repeat of four years ago when Hurricane Irene curtailed the competition to 54 holes.

Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day look like becoming the main men over the next few years, following in the footsteps of Palmer, Nicklaus and Player. Unfortunately Rory is sitting this one out so it could be another shoot-out between Spieth and Day.

With all the pressure Day was under in the last round of the PGA and the way he came through it all I fancy him to do the business. Although at the end he was looking completely frazzled he remained focused throughout to finish the job.

With four top-10 finishes including two wins from his last five outings don’t be surprised if he wins this weekend. His driving accuracy hasn’t been great this season but at the PGA he was hitting 73% of fairways. He is 22nd in GIR and 9th in strokes gained:putting and with the size of the greens being so large he should be be in the mix.

Brooks Koepka has three top sixes in his last three tourneys plus 9th in GIR and 8th in strokes gained:putting and with that in mind I have to select him again.

In his last 16 rounds he’s been in the 70s twice and is 52 under par in last five tournaments. He really is on fire and is going to win again before the end of the season. So I am already on him at 25-1 and at that price he’s a great price.

Twenty-eight-year-old American Robert Streb has really come to the fore over the last few months. He’s had five top-20s in his last five tournaments which included a fifth in the WGC Bridgestone followed by 10th in the USPGA. I’m giving him another chance and being 11th in GIR and 22 in strokes gained:putting a small each-way wager could turn out profitable.

Justin Thomas was going well in the Wyndham Championship last week but fell away in the final round with a 75. He’s had two top-fives in his last four tourneys and apart from the blip on Sunday his form looks to be quite solid. He is 47 under over 20 rounds and is certainly a birdies man with 393 this season, ranked third.

The European Tour is holding the D+D Real Czech Masters at the Albatross Golf Resort in Prague. I’m only picking one from this and it has to be Broberg after his scintillating 62 last weekend. He deserves another chance.

    Absolutely superb golf tipping again Ace – I’ll be on Koepka e/w but not had a chance to look in any great detail.

    Backed e/w last week with 365 but only 5 places…boo.

    Good luck

  2. HullShaker 5 years ago

    Always have a little pop on 1st round leader and going for:

    MATSUYAMA 50/1
    BLIXT 90/1
    VILLEGAS 100/1

    Also going to have a little outright e/w on Villegas at a massive 200/1 – great write-up in the SL.

    Put £300 onto skybet account to solely bet on the golf!!

    Can not disagree with Ace about J.Day, better stronger then ever this year and will kick on from the US PGA win, form figures from last 5 years here reading 5-13-24-25-2.

    Fancy W.Mcgirt to go go well this week too been playing some solid golf of late played well at the Wyndham last week too, Finished 5th here last year and 10th 3 years ago so has some course form.

    R.Fowler has finished 9-9 last two years years here and he is playing better this year so fancy him for a top 10 finish.

    Not sure about the Czech Masters with it being in it’s infancy course wise but going to stick with J.Morrison had a cracking year and finished 13th here last year.

    I am doing 1pt= £10

    3Pts WIN Jason Day 9/1 The Barclays
    1Pt EW James Morrison 20/1 Czech Masters.
    1pt EW double the above 2.
    1Pt EW William Mcgirt 200/1 The Barclays

    I’ll be a happy man if he stays up there – 100/1 e/w 1st round leader.

    Good luck all

    • Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      HullShaker, nice one. Off to walk the dug then start writing up Saturday columns.

  11. HullShaker 5 years ago

    Haha – cheers Mr F…I’ve a feeling he’ll not be up top for long…see Stenson steaming up the field -4 after 5…hey ho!

  12. HullShaker 5 years ago

    Villegas’ -5 stays good enough for a shared lead at the close of Round 1.


    His dropped stroke on the penultimate hole would have seen a clear lead at 6 under and a bumper return but alas a shared lead of 5 sees the dreaded dead-heat rule kick in…booo.

    Don’t like to state monetary stake figures but for the sake of Maths:

    VILLEGAS £5 e/w at 100/1 return = £630

    But…shared lead (1 of 5) return = £265

    Is that right Mr F – not quite sure how B365 have that figure? Dead heat = lose half stake and then work in number of ties as I understand? What happens to place part though…brain addled!?

    Still, mustn’t grumble and also backed my new favourite golfer to win outright e/w at 200/1 so here’s hoping!

  13. Craig 5 years ago

    Nice one Hullshaker. Good tipping.

  14. HullShaker 5 years ago

    Cheers Craig…can’t take credit for any tipping though…fancied Villegas and SL’s article swayed me even more. Good luck mate.
