This is a great story from the Action Network, on Paul Casey’s favourite betting story.
This is a great story from the Action Network, on Paul Casey’s favourite betting story.
Two main events this week the Nordea in Sweden which hasn’t attracted many top players so we concentrate on the Wyndham in USA !!!
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
The Top 20 Golf Bets Of All Time Part 1 of 3: Numbers 20-16
Time to stop hitting the cross bar, I am going for value this week more than ever as the top players are under performing??? It looks like Horschel started last week when he withdrew due to Sinusitis !!
Close but no cigar last week with Tony Finau 59/1 coming 2nd and Adam Scott 5th at 54/1. It's the Dell Technologies in the USA, the second of the FedEx playoff events. We will just concentrate on USA.
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 !!!
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.
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...

The Rolex Series includes the NedBank Golf Challenge in its ranks and yet there are few noticeable absentees making this one anyone’s. Here's where the value lies this week.
Part 2: Top 20 Golf Bets Of All Time: Numbers 15-11: From Mickelson's Tiger Trump to Michael Jordan's Gangster Problem
It’s major week for the Women’s game as the KPMG PGA Championship hits Olympia Fields. The bookmakers have Lexi Thompson as the favourite for this one but there is plenty of excellent value for outright winners and Each Way bets. Here is who the Spiv has his money on this week.
The U.S Open is finally here and we are in for a treat. Erin Hills looks tough on paper and follows in the USGA’s desire to use the hardest courses in the United States. Here are the Golf Spiv's top value picks.
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.

Fancy placing a bet? Well these guys may be worth taking a punt on.
The inside track on who to back, how to back them and where to stash your hard earned...
Team USA are the odds-on favourites at -110 with the bookmakers to win the 2018 Ryder Cup later this month at Le Golf National in Paris, France. The defending champions, who will be captained by Jim Furyk, are bidding to win in Europe for the first time since 1993.
The Ryder Cup is the biggest event in team golf and a competition which has interest far wider than those who follow the sport across the year. The latest instalment of this match takes place in Paris, France where the USA will be looking to defend the trophy they won at Hazeltine National Club in 2016.

At the AT&T Pro AM at Pebble Beach I suggested taking a punt on Phil Mickelson...I was pretty close. Now the PGA Tour heads to the Northern Trust Open. Rory McIlroy is in the field and so is golf’s other iconic lefty, Bubba Watson. Should be a great week.
To be honest, the Spiv thought the season was over until January...then, before I knew it, GP's Editor was on the blower asking where the odds for the Shootout are?! "What shootout?" I said. I won't tell you what he said next... Anyway, here's the lowdown. On The Franklin Templeton Shootout...
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.
Let's face it - as long as they're not happening to you, temper tantrums in any sport are both entertaining and hilarious in equal measure. The fact that the words "thus far" had to be included in the title of this article should be enough to give you some sort of indication as to how often these meltdowns occur and when they do, anyone within a 20 foot radius is likely to be at risk of receiving a 9-iron to the cranium.
