Damn that Bubba Watson chipping in and foiling our 1st place winnings... Anyway, back to this week. Here are this week's Fleming Golf Tips
Hold on a minute, a golf tipster who just won the whole kitten kaboodle? And he's done it before? Crikey. We have to admit weren't on this last week but we have learned our lesson. If you'd followed Fleming Golf Tips for the Pheonix and Maybank you'd be considerably happier this week. He called both winners. Here are this week's predictions...
FARMERS INSURANCE Bet before 15.00 GMT Thursday. Live on Sky Sports from Thursday 17.00 GMT. Weather is sunny and, again, competitors need power.
Lee Westwood will be hosting the British Masters this week at Close House for one of the European Tour’s best events of the year. Here's where the Golf Spiv thinks the value lies.
Glen Oaks Golf Club in Old Westbury, New York is hosting its first PGA event and what a better introduction than the playoffs? It is, of course, a nightmare for the punter as we have no idea about players previous record at the course. It’ll be new to the players and of course, new to us.
Who does the Golf Spiv think you should spend you hard earned cash on at The Open...
Following his fall last night, Dustin Johnson is no longer the clear favourite for The Masters. He's now in a three way tie with Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy at 7/1 with online bookmakers 888sport.
GolfPunk's new gun-slinger writer Keel Timmins has noticed that past Masters champions, no matter how old, have a habit of blazing up Augusta no matter what their form elsewhere. Very interesting...
Online bookmakers 888sport have today slashed Justin Thomas' odds on winning a major this year after back–to–back wins.
The Spiv backed Danny Willett to win the Masters winner and he forgot to tell us. This week we've got all his tips, follow his lead to win some cash at the RBC Heritage.
The Spiv is back with the inside track....The WGC World Match Play is one of my favourite events of the year. I love Match Play. The only problem is that there isn’t enough of it around on the Tour. This makes it difficult to place a bet. An out of form player with a strong competitive nature can easily win this one.
You can imagine how annoyed the Spiv was yesterday morning when he woke up to find out that Brandt Snedeker didn’t win the Sony Open after a play off. Gomez deserved it and well played, that man. But still managed Each Ways on Sneds and Kisner so on the whole...can’t grumble too much now can I?
Sony Open golf betting. Best value as always from The Golf Spiv. Take your pick from Jimmy Walker (16/1) to some great odds like David Lingmerth 100/1.
The season is over...time to relax. We wish! The Race to Dubai may have finished on Sunday but the new season on the European Tour kicks off on Thursday at the Leopard Creek Country Club in South Africa for the Alfred Dunhill Championship. Fancy placing a bet? Well these guys may be worth taking a punt on.
With the Golf Spiv still AWOL it looks like it's up to Golfhacker to highlight the ones to watch at the BMW Masters in China. He tipped Russell Knox to fight back and suggested that Danny Willett could come back despite his 100/1 odds on Friday.
This weeks top betting tips from the elusive, mysterious Golf Spiv!!!
Who does the Spiv fancy at the US Open? It's going to take a streetfighter to get the job done this week, not the purest ball striker. The Spiv highlights his best value E/W bets.
This week I'm skipping the Shell Houston Open, and betting on the first Major of the season. It’s the LPGA's ANA Inspiration, formerly known as the Kraft Nabisco. The first Women’s Major of the year.
It's the Omega Dubai Desert Classic this week, and the Spiv as done his homework. Checkout the best ways to earn some cash this week by following his top tips.
The PGA championship is the last major tournament of the season, soon to be followed by the Fed Ex play offs!! The career grand slam event only achieved by 5 golfers Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen, while Bobby Jones won a true golf grand slam in 1930.
What a great last day at the Open last Sunday, there were at least 12 possible winners with 6 holes to go and it's fair to say Tiger is back!!! The winner Francesco Molinari by 2 shots from Justin Rose but it was Tiger that had the crowd on its feet!!!
Two events this week the Scottish Open and the John Deere Classic. We concentrate on the Scottish Open, the last event before The Open. Two near misses last week in Ireland with both Jon Rahm and Andy Sullivan placed!!
Two events this week - the Irish Open and the Greenbrier in the USA. We will focus on the Irish Open, which has attracted a great field and is the ideal warm up for the Open in 2 weeks.
Mullinax 289/1! Amazing goings on at the US Open over the weekend, Brooks Koepka wins for second year in succession and Phil Mickleson try's playing crazy golf on the putting green!!! Our best selection Tony Finau was placed 5th at 109/1.
A welcome return to one of the worlds great golf courses, it’s been slightly redesigned by widening the fairways but it’s still a monster with the prospect for lightning fast greens. Immense skill required to even contend on this great course so I expect the top players to monopolise !!!
The second Major of the season is almost upon us, and this year’s edition looks more open than most US Opens in recent years.
Great to have the winner of BMW PGA at Wentworth in Francesco Molinari 24/1 and Brandon Grace 16/1 and Kiradech Aphibarnrat 59/1 placed. And now it is time for Memorial and the Italian Open.
Good to be back with a winner last week as Webb Simpson at 80/1 wins the Players Championship at Sawgrass. The European event this week is the Belgium knockout hosted by Thomas Pieter's and his wife, it's too much of a novelty event to get involved with, so we concentrate on the Byron Nelson in the USA.
It’s the Players Championships in the USA; I haven’t tipped Tiger Woods but I feel he is close to winning soon.
Here are Nick Fleming's golf tips for this week's Wells Fargo Championship from Quail Hollow in North Carolina.
Last week Jon Rahm won the Open de Espana from our selection Paul Dunne who led for almost three rounds!! In USA the RBC Heritage was won by Japanese Satoshi Kodaira please note our selection Adam Hadwin was a non-runner, so you get your money back.
A great finish to this season's first major the Masters resulted in Patrick Reed winning by one shot from Rickie Fowler and a resurgent Jordan Spieth!!! Two events this week the Spanish Open and RBC Heritage from USA.
The Masters – the year's first major and one of the truly great events. Won last year by Sergio Garcia (tipped by yours truly!) Most bookmakers paying out each way on top 10 including Betfair exchange. If you have a few accounts shop around. This week I am advising each way top 10 with a few more selections than normal.
The first day of Spring has passed. With the sun out more, the weather is starting to warm up and the birds are chirping. So you know this means … It’s finally here.
It's the final event before the Masters!!! Best odds for Houston Open...
Great stuff from Rory McIlroy at last weekend's Arnold Palmer Invitational, he must have a great chance at this week's match play event, as has last year's winner Dustin Johnson. But we will try and look outside the two hot Favourites. This week's other event is low key, so we concentrate on the Dell Match play.
Another weekend, another win, as GP's resident golf tipster got it right again with Paul Casey winning the Valspar... Here are his tips for Bay Hill...
Get rich or throw the dice tryin'... it's Fleming Golf Tips for the Valspar and Hero...
Brilliant first European tour success for our selection 70/1 Eddie Pepperell at the Qatar Masters, it looked until the last few holes that one of our selections Tommy Fleetwood or Alex Noren would prevail over in USA but the brilliance of Justin Thomas won the day !!
Last weekend we had a 2nd (Phil Mickelson) and a 3rd (Lucas Herbert). This week we will prevail... PLUS... Will Tiger & Rory be paired??

So far in 2018, our Spiv has walked away with the cash thanks to Pat Perez at the Tournament of Champions and Tommy Fleetwood’s awesome win at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship. Now he aims for a hat-trick as he takes on the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.
It’s happy birthday to Tiger Woods today as he turns 42. But neither age nor form have deterred a punter from backing him with a €10,000 bet to win the Masters.
Does Tony Finau really have more of a chance of winning a major in 2018 as Tiger Woods? Apparently so...

When you hear that some guy won £11,488 from a single golf bet it makes you think that perhaps you need to work a little harder at this betting lark. Although Rose did pay out at the weekend, I’m now thinking about upping the ante for this week. After all, win big or go home right?
The PGA Tour has announced a new gambling policy for 2018 with the creation of an Integrity Program, which will come into force on 1st January.

The main attention for the week may be at the Dell Tech Championships across the pond but this week, the Spiv will focus on the Czech Masters. That is where the best value is this week.
The Ricoh Women’s British Open is at Kingsbarns this year and one thing is certain. This one is wide open. The weather alone can be both beautiful and brutal in equal measure. Brace yourself, anything can happen here.

Given the length and par combination, it doesn’t take much of a genius to work out there are some long par 4’s round the South Course at Firestone, and length off the tee is certainly important. That said, when scrolling through the database, the archives actually point to more of a rounded stats player as well as the good old “bomber” type.
