Apologies for the truncated nature of this weeks PGA Tour tips but lets hope we can bag you a winner nonetheless.

Tiger Woods 6/1
This player has promise. Winner of the Arnie and the Jack events already this year and showed promise at the recent US Open. Struggles with his swing from time to time, but has won on this track before. A scoring average of 69.46 to date this season, compared to the field this chap statistically has the highest chance of winning at 88.92%
Brian Davis 90/1
Finding his form again. Four top 10’s this year and three of those are ties for fourth, another of which he bagged at the Travelers Championship. Davis’s shotlink stats from last week have him just about top in driving and greens in regulation combined and a repeat of those numbers plus a decent week with the flatstick could see him contend. It’s been something like seven years since he won so back him each way!
Jim Furyk 21/1
Tied fourth at the US Open, the 5 hour energy man just ran out of steam. Interestingly Furyk blamed a tee box that was moved ‘closer’ to the hole for his problems on the 16th. Nevertheless that’s three top 10’s in his last six starts; and he loves Congressional with two thirds and a seventh from 2007-2009.
Hunter Mahan 14/1
Already a two time winner this year at the Matchplay and in Houston and looking like he’s coming into form for the meat of the season. Mahan holed everything he looked at in the final round of the Travelers last week, where he came from a different planet to tied 11th after a 61. Mahan has good course form at Congressional too from when this event used be held here (up to 2009); tied 8th in 2007, tied 12th in 2008 and his best result of second in 2009 when Tiger won.
Best Of The Rest
Well I’m a big Ben Curtis fan and I know his caddie Ricky Elliot is hurting this week with the Irish Open being held in his home town. Another win to add to that in Texas might cheer him up though and with Ben having won the Booz Allen Classic on this track before, 70/1 look like great odds.
Keep and eye too for the progress of Adam Scott 25/1 and Davis Love at 85/1.
