Welcome to this weeks golf tips.

I’ll be focusing on the Houston Open this week. The Italian Open is at a course it hasn’t been at since 2002. I’m doing a small bet of Molinari to win & Top 5 at that one. Primarily to just have something interesting to watch for that.

I’ve also been trying to expand into other tournaments outside the main ones. I figure there has to be value in all of those. While I’m not really doing official picks yet, I do like Seung-Su Han and Shota Akiyoshi in the Bridgestone Open. Both to win and Top 5.

Alright so onto the Houston Open. No sponsor here which just feels so bizarre considering the amount of sponsors around these days but it is what it is.

Henrik Stenson looks good however at 9/1 no chance. Been able to get him at like 50/1 etc over the past few months so this isn’t appealing. I do hope he manages to get it going though.

My only main bet this week is Russell Henley to win and Top 5. The lad performs on this course very well and it’s the last time that they play at this course. Have to wonder if that plays into his performance here and if he sees it as much important to win. I think it has to be a solid motivator. Regardless of previous form he always does the job here.

I’ve then got just three small and speculative bets on others. All are to win and Top 5.

My first one up is the 140/1 Kristoffer Ventura Never played here of course but I think he could do quite well here. He’s looking like he has adjusted to life in the pros and is starting to get going. I’d also advise betting him to win and Top 5 in the first round as well. You never know how it goes if the pressure will get to him.

I’m also on Matt Every. This was a funny one where he was on my shortlist and almost didn’t make it – but at the very last second he just crossed the finish line and became a pick. I liked what I saw from last week and I was rewatching the highlights this morning and was like “Yep I have faith in him”. Just hast to get his putting going here.

Finally I’m on Zac Blair. Popped up in the metrics for me and he had a solid finish here a couple of years back. He’s able to come out of nowhere – like in the Safeway Open – and I am hoping he can do that again here.
