This week in the PGA Tour, we have the Crowne Plaza Invitational. This event began in 1946 and was dominated in the early days by Ben Hogan. In recent times, Zach Johnson is the dominant one with wins in 2010 and 2012, and a host of tremendous finishes.
Last year, Adam Scott won the event. He went to a playoff with Jason Dufner after both ended at -9. It’s a very interesting course where you can see people shooting as high as 73 one day, then 66 the next. Accuracy is a very key component here as is consistency.
Hopefully we can continue our winning ways. Phil Mickelson got us a cash in the Wells Fargo last week. Here’s the betting slip:
Nice cash for us.

Crowne Plaza Invitational Betting Tip #1: Zach Johnson
We just can’t ignore Zach Johnsons record here. Since 2009 he has played 6 times in a row, and had 5 top 10 finishes and 4 Top 5 finishes. In that time, he has had two victories.
Johnson is coming into this event on some average form. He’s had a few top 10 finishes, and a few top 20 finishes but nothing groundbreaking.
We have to have faith in Johnson here to hopefully break the Top 5. His form in this tournament and on this course is incredible, and he’s still a solid betting price at 12/1.
Unfortunately, Zach Johnson is the only golfer that stands out for us in the Crowne Plaza Invitational thi sweek. There were a few other possibilities we will mention that just didn’t make the cut. We may throw small bets on them anyway, and if you want to then go for it:
Paul Casey: Very selective about what he plays this year. He’s had good finishes when he does play. He didn’t make the cut last year, and never played in the few years before that. His only other tournaments were the 2009 where he came 5th, and the 2010 where he came 13th. We think he’s decent odds for a Top 10 pick – but going to be hard for him to break the top 5.
Kenny Perry: Multiple time winner, Perry hasn’t entered in the last 3 years after some really poor showings. He’s a whopping 250/1 and recent form suggests that is an accurate price. It’s one where we may just throw something on just for the sheer hell of it, but we can’t officially tip Perry.
John Senden: Senden has been plagued with injuries, however in his last two showings he got a 5th spot and an 8th spot. He’s also had some good finishes here – although some horrible ones as well. At 50/1 we will probably do a small bet on him. You may want to bet on him for a Top 10 finish instead – you can choose that betting option at .
