Along with the Nedbank Challenge, Golf nippon Series JT Cup and the Australian open, there are also 2 biggish events taking place on the US PGA golf tour from the 2nd - 7th of december. These 2 events are of course the PGA qualifying school with players competing for their card for next years main golf tour and the small select field in Tiger wood's Chevron World Series
Chevron World Series Picks
-0.75pts E/W Ian Poulter @ 14/1(PaddyPower) Course is very short with emphasis on accuracy and ball placement - 2 of Poulter's strengths. Poulter is in great form and is the value here at 14's
-0.5pts E/W Graeme McDowell @ 35/1 (PaddyPower) Can't actually believe this price in a 14 man field comprising of a lot of golfers that have been out of competitive action. McDowell is seriously underrated and is a much better bet at a price like that than for example my own favourite Harrington would be @ 7's
PGA Tour Qualifying School
6 rounds will be played over 2 courses at Bear Lakes. Both courses are in excess of 7,400 yards so bearing these facts in mind, we're looking for a consistent golfer with a bit of distance off the tee. Chris riley ticks box 1 but the length of the courses puts me off him and instead I'll go for Joe Ogilvie who stands out from the rest in terms of what I was looking for.
-1pt E/W Joe Ogilvie @ 40/1 (Boylesports) Ogilvie is a solid player who could easily string together 6 good rounds. He averages over 290 yards off the tee and his putting and scrambling stats are right up there.
