Favourite Watch

Rory McIlroy can putt again. Watch out world!

When I was compiling my tips Monday morning Rory McIlroy had to play his final round at the Deutsche Bank and was 11/1 with the bookies for this week’s BMW Championship.  I figured those were good odds given that Rors had won the last time the event was held at Crooked Stick.  Needless to say events of the day saw Rors win and his odds slashed since to 11/2.  Still worth a look in the win only market.

 Doc’s Top Five Each Way Bets

Dustin Johnson 10/1

DJ. Animal for an animal of a course.

Rory McIlroy’s win in Boston has had the effect of nudging DJ’s BMW odds out to the magic 10/1 and he has to have serious claims this week.  Looked invincible in the Summer winning the US Open and WGC Bridgestone then fared well at Troon (T9).  Since missing the cut in Baltusrol Johnson has scored a T18 at The Barclays and T8 at the Deutsche Bank, following a third round 75 with a final round of 66.  Won the 2010 Barclays and was T6 at Crooked Stick in 2012 and has all the credentials to win this week.

Adam Scott  18/1

Adam. Can't hole a bloody putt mate!
A solo fourth again on Monday to go with a T4 at The Barclays and if Adam Scott could get one putt more here and there he can win.  Jumped 19 places with a final round 65 in Boston finishing third in the driving distance stats and T3 in greens in reg.  T6 with DJ here in 2012.

Louis Oosthuizen  33/1

Louis. Right there for a win.
From and including the PGA Championship Louis has now gone T22, T17, T18, T8 and when a proven champion like him can feel his form reaching a pinnacle he knows how to go ahead and win.  A good cumulative spread of E, -4, -5 on the par 3’s/4’s/5’s confirm everything is in good shape. T16 at this venue in 2012.

Gary Woodland 50/1

Gary Woodland. Big man. Good form.
Whatever happens from here on in I think 2016 will go down as an excellent workmanlike season for Gary Woodland with 11 top-25 finishes to date.  Followed up a T4 at The Barclays with a T15 at the Deutsche Bank.  And the interesting thing is he didn’t bomb and gouge in Boston; Gary actually went -9 for just the par-4’s (compared to winner Rory McIlroy who was even for the par-4’s and -12 for the par-5’s).  Expect him to open the shoulders more this week! 

Kevin Chappell 66/1

Kevin Chappell. Pray.

After solo seconds at the Arnie and The Players Kevin Chappell is peaking again at the end of the season and he comes in off a T8 at The Deutsche Bank.  Granted his challenge did peter out in the last two rounds but looking at his performance overall Chappell finished top-25 in all the major stat categories and that’s a rarity for any player.  Certainly has the power game needed for this week, watch this space.
