Favourite Watch

Pat Reed. The PGA Tour's Mike TV.
Rickie Fowler tops the betting at 14/1 but for me the man to watch this week is Pat Reed at 16/1.  Missed the cut at the US Open (maybe that’s a good thing for us) but showing decent recent form with a T8 at The Memorial and T15 at Colonial.  Led here in 2014 before messing up with a 77 on Sunday to finish T11.  A good scrambler who likes a tough track.

Doc’s Top 2016 Quicken Loans National Betting Tips 

Justin Thomas 30/1

Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth. Last week.

Beginning to emerge from the shadow of his best mate Jordan Spieth.  T32 at the US Open on the face of it doesn’t excite but Justin made a field leading 17 birdies at Oakmont which impressed me greatly.  Has a T3 at The Players to show he can cope with a hard layout and with soft conditions at Congressional seems a good fit.  Note that his T5 last year was over at the Robert Trent Jones GC and not at Congressional who only now host on even years. Nevertheless he gets the nod from me.

Marc Leishman 28/1

Leishman. He's back in form.

Perfect fit for a return to Congressional.  The Aussie comes in on a run of three top-20’s with  T18 at Oakmont, T11 at Memorial and T13 at Colonial.  Found 50 greens in regulation on his last visit here in 2014 finishing T8.  As with all the US Open players in the field, tiredness is an issue but Leishman has the form to contend.

Jason Kokrak 40/1

Jason Kokrak. Last seen in the stands at Wells Fargo.

My guy on the PGA Tour says Jason is finding form and my guy knows his onions.  T37 at the US Open arrested a terrible run since a T6 at The Heritage and that was due to a T6 performance in driving accuracy.  Jason likes Congressional too; he was T3 here in 2013.

Kevin Streelman 66/1

Streelman. Imagine if he could putt.

Kevin is playing so well tee to green at the moment, he just needs the putts to drop.  T13 at the US Open where he posted a T5 clip for greens in regulation.  Unfortunately took 126 putts (T52 in the field) but may get more respite at Congressional this week where the emphasis is less on putting and more strokes gained tee to green.

Brendan Steele 33/1

Steele. He'll need to be.

T15 at Oakmont and T20 before that at Memorial make it four top 20’s in Brendan’s last six starts.  Drives it a country mile and did so when he finished T5 at Congressional in 2014 and T16 in 2013.
