FREE GOLF BETTING GUIDE AND TIPS
From the tips Chambers Bay measures a staggering 7,940-yards and if the wind gets up on this American links style course you can be sure the players will be in for a tough time. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. and opened for play in 2007, Chambers Bay golf Club has already won many accolades and hosted the US Amateur championship only 3-years after opening.
The course was built on a former rock quarry and sits in a giant bowl bordered by the railway and Puget Sound to the west. The links style course has no interior water hazards and a single tree. The large undulating greens compliment the wide firm and fast running fairways that sit between large sand dunes and bunkers.
The 246-yard, par-3, 15th hole is the courses signature hole and will be a big feature during the US Open broadcast and features the only tree on the course, which sits behind the large green. With the Puget Sound as its backdrop and a large bunker complex that surrounds three-quarters of the green at the front with a drop off to the front taking anything short back down into it, there is also one pot bunker at the back.
My tips to win:
Jordan Spieth 9/1 – with William Hill – my not be the bookies favourite but I must admit I really can’t split my picks to win, I would say of the three Jordan is the most inform player coming into this week on the back of two Top 5s in his last three events and of course as the Masters champion. They do say the first major is the hardest to win and I am sure we will see Jordan right in the thick of it come Sunday afternoon battling for his second.
The least inform player of my three picks is Rory McIlroy 7/1 – with BetVictor – but you bet against the young lad from Northern Ireland at your peril. He may have missed the cut at both the BMW PGA Championship and the Irish Open, but he did win twice on the PGA Tour in the space of three weeks and lets not forget his 4th place finish at the Masters and 8th at The Players Championship. Chambers Bay is long and tough and on his day McIlroy can destroy a field, so don’t be surprised if Rory comes out and wins by at least six shots come Sunday.
Justin Rose 20/1 – with PaddyPower – not only comes into this week in great form with two second place finishes and a win from his last five starts on the PGA Tour – which includes his runner-up at The Masters. Rose won his first major in this event two years ago at Merion Golf Club and he will take lots of positive energy from that victory. Justin can miss the odd one or two short putts, but when his putter is hot, he is capable of going very low and anyone who sits in second place on the birdie stats and first from 75-100 yards, will do very well round Chambers Bay.
My each-way tips:
I was quite surprised to see Hideki Matsuyama 40/1 – with BoyleSport – this far down the betting odds. It’s been a good year so far for the lad from Japan and although he hasn’t won a tournament so far, I don’t think it will be long. Hideki’s record of only being outside the Top 25s twice from twelve starts with six of those being inside the Top 5, shows he is in the thick of it every time he tees it up and I don’t expect anything different this week.
One player who I am sticking with this week from last weeks picks, will be Billy Horschel 66/1 – with Coral – his final round 65 at last weeks St Jude Classic moved him up the leaderboard twenty-two places. Billy has been playing well the last couple of weeks and his last four events show a nice steady progression of finishing 17th, 13th, 11th and 8th if he keeps that going this week, he will be in one of the final pairings come Sunday afternoon.
My outside tip:
I have been watching Webb Simpson 80/1 – with Bet365 – steadily coming back into form over the last few months and I was a bit worried that he may of peaked before the US Open when he had a runners-up finish at the Wells Fargo Championship. I am not too concerned that Webb missed the cut at the St Jude Classic last weekend and being a former US Open Champion he will know what it takes coming down the stretch and at these odds, I think he maybe just worth a little each-way punt.
As always good luck
