This week sees the return of the World Golf Championship (WGC) at one of the most iconic golf courses on the US Tour, The Firestone Country Club, in Akron, Ohio has a long history having hosted PGA Tour events for over five decades. The South Course with its great views of the Firestone water tower provides a challenging, test. Opened back in 1929 and designed by Bert Way, it then had a redesign by Robert Trent Jones in 1960. Itís a tough track at 7,400 yards with two halves of 35 making a par 70.

No surprise to see Tiger Woods 20/1 near the top of the betting odds, it seems according to the bookies, Tiger can tee it up after 11 weeks and win here. Firestone is a course Tiger loves, winning seven times on this track, but after such a long absence, I think he is using this as a warm up to the years last major next week at the USPGA Championship and a win here would be a massive bonus.

Our picks for the week are: Luke Donald 16/1 no surprise in tipping the man from Hemel Hempstead, consistency has become synonymous with his game and after poor US and Open Championships, Luke will be looking to get his game together for next weeks USPGA Championship.

Lee Westwood 16/1 has had a couple of weeks off after his poor showing in the Open Championship, where he missed the cut. There is so much expectation on him now to win a major I wonder if he ever will. But if he is going to win one it will be in the US where I think the courses suit him more, I can see Lee winning here and just missing out again next week.

Dustin Johnson 16/1 has had a week off after his runners-up in the Open Championship and his 6th place finish in the Nordea Masters. Dustin hasnít had a win this year but came close in the last WGC event the Cadillac Championship, finishing runner-up to Nick Watney 25/1 and currently sits at number seven in the World Rankings.

Our each-way bets are: Jason Day 40/1 seems to have a knack of peaking for the big tournaments, which is not a bad habit to have acquired. Runners up at both the Masters and US Open and missing out on a Top 25 slot in the Open Championship by two shots. Jason has made the Top 10 seven times out of his 15 starts, so look for him to do well again this week.

We think Rickie Fowler 33/1 is on the verge of big things, not really a hard prediction, many punters having been saying this about Rickie for a few years now, but after watching his friend Rory McIlroy 14/1 win the US Open and his own great finish in the Open Championship, I think mentally Rickie realises he can become a great player.

Itís going to be an interesting week for Adam Scott 40/1 with Tiger back on the scene. Adam still has that Butch Harmon swing, who was Tigers old coach, which has been tweaked slightly by brother-in-law Brad Malone. He now also has Woods old caddy, Steve Williams on his bag. Whether this will prove a distraction for the big Aussie we will see, but Adam has had an up and down year making the Top 25 in six out of the twelve events heís played, but out of the other six events his missed the cut four times, one of them in the US Open. But he has the game to do well and looks like his getting back to his best.

We have added a forth player for the each-way bets this week as I think the bookies are offering great odds on Lucas Glover 80/1, with a win under his belt at the Wells Fargo Championship and a good Open Championship under the bearded wonder looks like his enjoying his golf again and at these odds could be worth a pound or two.

As always good luck
