Well it wasn’t the biggest win we’ve ever had, but it was still a nice 6 unit profit. We went with Miguel Angel Jimenez last week in the BMW PGA Championship on the European Tour, and he duly delivered with a solid place to earn us this cash:
Amazing to see the form that he is in at the moment. I still remember having a discussion a year ago about him and whether he still “had it” – good to see that a year along, and he’s still just absolutely killing it.
This week in the PGA Tour, it is the AT&T Byron Nelson. This event takes place in the lovely city of Irving, Texas and hopefully there’ll be no rain issues. The forecast does predict rain and thunderstorms throughout the tournament which is concerning, but we spoke to a good friend who lives there who says that they’ve had that forecast for the past month, and they get a little bit of rain out of nowhere then it disappears.
Either way – you may want to proceed with caution this week and lessen your betting units.
Last years winner of this course was Brendon Todd, and the year prior it was Bae Sang-moon. This is the first time it’s actually called the AT&T Byron Nelson. Previously it was the HP Byron Nelson Championship. This is a big tournament as it’s the biggest fundraising event of the whole tour. Initially known as the Dallas Open or Texas Open, it changed its name in 1968 in tribute to Byron Nelson, the first winner of the tournament.
Lord Byron sadly passed away in 2006.

AT&T Byron Nelson Betting Tip #1: Gary Woodland
Woodland is 35/1 and we’ll be betting a quarter unit on him. This is in part due to the potential weather, and our confidence levels.
We’re disappointed Woodland was this low in the odds honestly. We were hoping for higher and would have bet half unit at 50/1. Woodland finished 7 here last year and looked solid. He’s also going into this tournament on the back of some solid form. He was 4th just a couple of weeks ago at the Wells Fargo with two exceptional final rounds, and was 2nd in the Match Play. He also had a 3rd place in the Sony Open and 2nd in CIMB Classic.
He’s got the potential to get up there and is 20th in the Fedex Cup rankings at the moment. Usually a slow starter – he may be someone worth betting on round 2 if the odds shoot up. So keep an eye on that.
That will be our only betting tip for the tournament unfortunately. Just not much value elsewhere.
