Favourite Watch

Nobody has an earthly clue who is going to win this week, so the bookies just stuck in Rory McIlroy at around 7/1.  It doesn't matter a damn that he's never ever played Colonial on Tour, and probably for a reason, because these are unprecedented times!


Doc's Top 5 Best Each Way Bets At Colonial

Webb Simpson 22/1

Was having a super wraparound 2020 season until Corona popped up to spoil things.  God-like off the tee when winning at Phoenix and 3rd at the Sony Open, which is always a good dry and windy indicator of who might do well at Colonial.  Missed the cut in 2019 here, but 5th in 2018 and T3 in 2017.

Matt Kuchar 50/1

Just think about it, everyone locked down for three months...who is the most likely to just dust off the clubs off, throw them in the car and carry on his wily ways as if he was never off?   Matt Kuchar. Colonial ranked 7th hardest on Tour in 2019 and my guys on course tell me its dry and fast this time around.  The timeless short par-70 is no place for bombers or crooked guys and I can see the sickly smirk breaking out already as Kuch eyes a hefty payday.

Harris English 66/1

I've grown old and grey waiting for Harris English to win again on the PGA Tour, twice a champ in 2013 but never since.  T9 at The Arnie, top-20 at Honda and Phoenix with super driving numbers and a phenomenal iron player and has the perfect game to handle the dozen dog legs on this cerebral test.  Best of solo 2nd here in 2016 when Spieth won.

Ryan Palmer 80/1

Where has Ryan Palmer been during the PGA Tour hiatus?  Probably at Colonial, where he is member!  Became a PGA Tour winner kinda sorta again in 2019 at the Zurich Classic paired with Jon Rahm and started off the 2020 season impressively with a T4 at the Sony Open.  Consistency wouldn't be a word to summarise Palmer's Colonial formline but four top-6 finishes in his last 8 starts at the event makes him surely worth an each-way look.

Kevin Na 55/1

The defending champion will go completely under the radar this week with the top-5 in the world all coming to Texas.  But if your looking for a guy who will dink it up the middle every single time, plot and plan his way around the golf course and work his way up the leaderboard this is your guy.  Four other top-10 finishes here besides that emotional win in 2019.

Long Odds Glory Shot

Zach Johnson 175/1

Zach Johnson starts at 175/1 this week.  Yes maybe his best days are behind him, but with a level playing field, and everyone fresh, there's a fair chance the straightest batter of them all and two time winner will at least cameo.
