BMW Championship

The BMW Championship 2009 will once again return to Cog Hill G.C but the course won't be the same course that hosted the 2007 BMW Championship. It's undergone serious renovations conducted by Rees Jones and the greens are now much faster and trickier, the bunkers are a lot deeper and this week at the BMW, pin positions will be a serious test, making strategic play and accurate ball striking the premium. The course will play about 7,386 yards and accuracy is a must so this week the value picks will focus on the more experienced players with games relying on placement and course management.

Nic's value picks man to beat: Jim Fuyrk - Recent course form at Cog Hill second to none and in good current form.

(All picks W/O Woods)

-1pt E/W Mike Weir @ 50/1 - If not for a quad early in the last round at the Deutsche bank, he'd have been challenging. Excels around playoffs time.

-1pt E/W Zach Johnson @ 33/1 - Course management is one of his key attributes as well as putting. Good performance last week and one who knows how to win when he gets in position unlike the torrent of bottlers I've had recently.

Golf Player Profiles

Please note that player attribute ratings are derived from the official PGA Tour and European Tour golf stats, and updated with a rolling average each golf betting year for precision.

Bryan Nicholson is the pioneer of the progressive form and course fit ratings for golf betting, with the associated progressive form model and course fit profiling model. Bryan is the author of the increasingly popular annual course fit profiling manual and #1 golf betting book Angles & Edges and runs the Sharp Sports Bettors Blog.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Bryan also pioneered the concept of Expected Strokes Gained Course Fit (xSGF) in golf betting. xSGF can be predicted using my model below. For prospective golf betting tips it projects ahead of time how many shots a player is expected to pick up per round on average on a particular golf course. It's weighed against a neutral golf course of the same rating. For example: Sam Horsfield at Celtic Manor vs TPC Southwind. This number will also portray ability level in terms of strokes gained total. Click "find out more" under the course fit golf betting model for info.

What is Progressive Form in Golf Betting?

Progressive form in golf betting differs from current form in that players are showing a trend in the right direction in their recent scoring. Trending form has a high predictive value in golf betting and can also catch players under the radar at an inflated price vs their true betting odds. For example - a player shows form of T40 - 24 - 24, but last week he was in the leading PGA Tour group on Sunday with Tiger Woods and had a bad round due to nerves. His finishing position may not fully capture his actual form... See more with our calculators and betting tools
