Children’s Miracle Network Classic Betting Tips
Brendon de Jonge 14/1
It’s start number 150 for the South African this week and one of the stars in a field bereft of many of the top names. Brendon hasn’t been outside the top four in his last three starts with a best of runner up at The Shriners a few weeks back. His scoring average of 70.06 is the best in the field.
Charles Howell 25/1
Charles seems to be finding a bit of late season form after a tied seventh at the McGladrey and a tied 11th at the Frys. Knows the place inside out having had 11 starts in this tournament. Top tenned in 2006 and 2010.
Tommy Gainey 33/1
After his success on the Big Break TV show Two Gloves got a start here in 2008 and he certainly made the most of it with a second place finish behind Davis Love. Gainey shot a 60 in his final round last time out to win the McGladrey and with a week off to get grounded (though I believe he always is) Gainey might just fancy another big payday at Disney.
Davis Love 40/1
Does Captain Love have one more win in him? Well, judging by his tied fourth at The McGladrey, he just might. And if Love is to win, this is the most likely place is here with the easy Palm course in play before the cut. Love mastered the layout in 2008 and has six more top fives down the years to be the all time money winner here.
Justin Leonard 80/1
This week is the last event of the fall series and all eyes will be on the guys at 125 or lower on the money list as they are fighting for their Tour lives. Justin Leonard finds himself at 138th on the list and under serious pressure to perform. But he can be reassured by the fact that he tied second in two of the last three stagings. Leonard’s last win came in 2008 at the Stanford St Jude and his form of late has been woeful (with the exception of a good first round 64 at The Shriners) but desperate times require desperate measures.
