2011 AT&T National Betting Preview and Tips, Aronimink Golf Club, PGA Tour, Newtown Square, Pennsylvania
Ryan Moore 22/1
Only one win on Tour at the 2009 Wyndham but Moore is one of the most solid players on Tour. Apart from a missed cut at the US Open, he hasn’t been outside the top 45 since The Northern Trust Open back in February. Tied for second last week at the Travelers and also finished second to Justin Rose here last year.
Nick Watney 15/1
Another man who didn’t make the weekend at Congressional but finished in a tie for 13th last week which included two opening 65’s. Seven top 10’s already this season, but without a win, this Aronimink track is one of the toughest tests on Tour and should suit his game of high percentage greens in regulation. Tied seventh last year.
Robert Garrigus 80/1
Garrigus returns to the Tour after a week off no doubt to celebrate his tied third at Congressional. A superb display of long and accurate driving on that occasion and a repeat would see him right in the mix this week. This is a 7200 plus yard par 70, with one of the toughest closing stretches on Tour. It might be right up his street.
Bo Van Pelt 28/1
What a run Bo Van Pelt is having. It kicked off at the Crowne Plaza in May with a third, then 13 at the Memorial and 14th at the US Open. Finished 13th again last week but Aronimink may suit his game a little better having tied 11th here last year off a similar form line. Just a pity he shares his name with a Dutch porn star!
Andres Romero 65/1
Slowly getting his confidence back after a great start to life back on Tour in 2007. Always seems to peek around British Open time and had his best result of the season tying sixth last week. Master of the short game, you will also get Andres around 7/1 for a top 10 finish.
