My favorite event to watch traditionally is The Open. Wake up early and couch it most of the day. Links golf is a lot of fun to watch with or without the elements as you see a lot of variables you don’t traditionally see in the states….Pot bunkers in fairways that require chipping sideways, backwards, or up steep stacked sod sides, tall rough that makes the strongest guys look like your average weekend warrior, and wind/rain that most of us would cart it in to the 19th hole as fast as possible. Buckle up it’s time for some great viewing at Royal St. Georges! Let’s see if we can finish the last MAJOR of 2021 on a high note and build on the great success we’ve had this year.
SEASON LONG TOTAL: + $3,567
We’ve had an awesome year so far and hope to keep it moving positive throughout the Summer..….We’ve hit outrights on both Harris English wins (2), Si Woo Kim, Brooks Koepka, Daniel Berger, Collin Morikawa, and Justin Thomas. Also hit First Round Leader plays on Kokrak, Fitzpatrick, Keegan and Spieth. 7 outrights and 4 FRL is pretty cool, especially when the picks are free!
Tyrrell Hatton ($25 to win $625): Long overdue for a win…..Would love to hear CHAMPION GOLFER OF THE YEAR next to his name.
Collin Morikawa ($25 to win $700): Hard to best first timers here….BUT his iron play is too good to ignore.
Patrick Cantlay ($25 to win $750): He’s under the radar this week. Honestly was my first click.
Harris English ($25 to win $1,250): Bet both his wins this year…He’s got the game to win here!
Rickie Fowler ($25 to win $1,500): Rounding into some form and loves links golf! What a great time to win his first major!
Justin Rose ($25 to win $100): Never know with Rosie…But I’ve got a good feeling here!
Sergio Garcia ($25 to win $112): Sergio is just like Justin Rose. I really wanted to bet both to win, just couldn’t.
Marc Leishman ($25 to win $112): Boom or bust….He’ll boom this week!
Harris English ($25 to win $125): He’s been great in majors recently….A Top 10 added to his win would be ideal.
Rickie Fowler ($25 to win $250): Same as Harris English here!
Jason Day ($25 to win $300): He’s shown some form recently. I’ll have a lot of J Day in draft kings….
Head 2 Head Matches:
AARON RAI -1.5 vs. Harding ($38 to win $33): Rai pops in my models…..
JORDAN SPIETH vs. Schauffele ($33 to win $39): Love Spieth just like he loves links golf.
TYRRELL HATTON -1.5 vs. Hovland ($35 to win $33): Bet Hatton to win….couldn’t skip this one.
PATRICK CANTLAY -1.5 vs. Reed ($33 to win $39): Same as Hatton above! Not big on Reed this week.
KEVIN KISNER -1.5 vs. Homa ($35 to win $33): Really wanted to bet Kis more this week…I’ll settle here
First Round Leader:
Rory McIlroy ($25 to win $550): Why not? He’s not great in Round 1….Trends can change here!
Collin Morikawa ($25 to win $1,125): Great number for a guy who can hit it close A LOT!
Rickie Fowler ($25 to win $1,250): I’m big on Rick this week.
Robert MacIntyre ($25 to win $1,250): Love to see Bobby Mac lead after Thursday
