Favourite Watch

Dustin Johnson is 9/2 after returning to winning ways at the BMW Championship last time out and he looks an awesome prospect ahead of the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine.  T5 here last year, didn’t play in 2014 and solo fifth in 2013.

Doc’s Top Five Best Bets At The Tour Championship

Paul Casey 16/1

I just wish there wasn’t a weeks break before The Tour Championship as Paul Casey was on a roll with solo seconds the the Deutsche Bank and BMW.  The Englishman punched in some serious stats last time out; T5 in driving accuracy, T6 in greens hit and T14 in putting.  Casey has played in the Tour Championship just twice since 2010 but impressed on both occasions with a T4 in 2010 and T5 in Atlanta last season.  Super chance.

Ryan Moore 40/1

Finding value in a small field is not easy but I think Ryan Moore looks decent odds at 40/1.  Since winning the John Deere, Moore has added a T7 at The Barclays and T8 at the Deutsche Bank to seal his spot in this week’s showpiece for the first time since 2012 when he tied third behind Brandt Snedeker.  T4 also in 2010.

Si Woo Kim  80/1

The young South Korean makes his debut at The Tour Championship and he’s afraid of nobody.  Kim is a super putter and everything must be bonus for him after winning the Wyndham Championship.  The 21 year old scored a T15 at The Deutsche Bank and T20 at the BMW Championship last time out.

Bubba Watson 25/1

I’m not entirely sure why DL3 left Bubba hanging for the final Captain’s pick for the Ryder Cup and maybe Davis regrets it himself with his decision to invite Watson to practice with six of the team in Hazeltine at the weekend.
That endorsement might take the pressure off Watson heading into the Tour Championship and it’s a course where he can be competitive. Bubba’s form tee to green is solid; he was T2 in greens hit at The Barclays but just hasn’t got the putts of late.  He finished T13 there and T20 last time out at the BMW.  Best of T5 here in Atlanta in 2015 and 2012.

JB Holmes 35/1

Deservingly got his Ryder Cup pick and brings a highly decorated matchplay winners record to Hazeltine.  T4 at the BMW Championship last time out even with a spot of apple crumble in the final round!  Now free of shackles watch out for JB to open the shoulders this week. T8 in 2015.

Long Odds Glory

Sean O’Hair 100/1

T2 at The Barclays for O’Hair and he’s 100/1? You must be joking! He’s back for the first time since 2009. On that occasion Sean finished a respectable solo third behind Tiger and Phil.
