Favourite Discussion

Jason Day is an animal.
Jason Day heads the betting this week at 13/2 after a T4 finish at The Barclays and though he feels himself tiring he also knows that TPC Boston suits his game.  Five top 15 finishes from his last six starts here include a T2 and T3 from 2010 and 2011 respectively and in coming T12th last year the Aussie topped the greens in regulation stats. My only concern with Jason is driving accuracy; he will need to improve from last weeks clip of hitting just 20 fairways (79th in the field) to contend here

Doc’s Top Five Each Way Bets

Henrik Stenson 16/1

Henrik. That dodgy knee was niggling again last week.

The only caveat here is injury; the knee surgery earlier this year flared up again and caused Henrik to WD after one round last week.  Assuming he’s fully fit I really fancy the Swede on this course as you don’t need to be the best putter to win here.  The Open champ proved that by winning here in 2013 and his solo second again last year saw Henrik go -13 for just the par fours.  Watch out for fitness updates Thursday morning.

Adam Scott 20/1

Adam and Rory discussing Gomorrah on Netflix.
You’ve just got to admire the way Adam Scott flits in and out of the media spotlight with such ease for a high profile player and how, when he does show up at an event, he hits the ground running.  Found 54 greens in reg. last week (four more than winner Pat Reed) in his T4 finish and returns to TPC Boston after missing last year.  Won here yonks ago, has three 10’s since 2010 and could well feature again this year.

Louis Oosthuizen 40/1

Normally they get Louis's second name wrong.
Second week in the tips for Louis and I think he’s worth sticking with. You often hear players saying “I’m playing well, I’m close, it just hasn’t happened yet,” and that’s so true in this case.  Five top 25’s in his last six starts show consistency; topping the GIR stats at Baltusrol and taking less putts than everyone at Bethpage show key facets of the game are firing.  Best of solo second here in 2012 and played again last year finishing T12.

Russell Knox 66/1

Russell Knox. "You're damn right I'm pissed off!"

I’ve always got the feeling that with Russell Knox being US based he would struggle to get a Captain’s pick from Darren Clarke and so it proved.  It will be interesting to see his demeanour this week on the back of that disappointment.  It’s the Scot’s third visit to Boston and he was going great here last year until a final round of 75 dropped him to T12.  Since then he is a two time winner (WGC HSBC and The Travelers) and might just be out to show Dazzler what he’ll be missing at the Ryder Cup this week.

Sean O’Hair 90/1

Sean O'Hair. What a pro.

Worth a look this week at crazy long odds of 90/1 is Sean O’Hair who improved from a T22 at the Wyndham to a T2 at The Barclays after a stunning Sunday 66.  Tied for fourth here last year and sure to be confident.
