Stephen Ames For The Win 4th stop on the PGA tour 2010 this week in the form of the Farmers Insurance Open (previously called the Buick Invitational) at Torrey Pines. Golf betting tips so far this year have turned out to be useless but only a couple of weeks in and with little competitive form, that's not exactly a major shock. The golf betting season starts here and there are plenty of value bets on offer looking down the Farmers Insurance Open price list. Home boy Phil Mickelson is obviously installed as favourite and Allenby second in behind him and it's a course right up Allenby's street. I won't be touching either of those 2 though at the short betting prices. The golf tournament will be played over the 2 courses at Torrey pines, with 3 rounds being played on the monster that is the south course. It's over 7,600 yards long with pretty tight fairways and deep rough so the first focus of Farmers Insurance golf picks will be keeping the ball in play off the tee whilst getting it out there at the same time. Total driving is the premium here......... stay tuned for expert Farmers Insurance Open Value golf picks/Tips
Farmers Insurance Open Value Picks:
-1pt E/W Stephen Ames @ 60/1 (sporting bet) Ames regained some form towards the back end of last season and continued on where he left off 2 weeks ago in Hawaii. He regularly features on the leaderboards in majors therefore he enjoys tough challenges like this 1. Way overpriced at 60/1.
-1pts E/W Charles Howell @ 33/1 (general) Great record here on a course he knows very well. In good form this early season.
-2pts John Senden top 10 finish @ 6/1 (Stan James) Played well last week at the Bob Hope and his ability with the driver and his GIR% are what catches the eye as those are key stats around this track (VOID - Late withdrawal)
-1.25pts Matt Jones top 20 finish @ 3/1(paddypower) 5th and another top 20 in his last 2 starts here and off the back of another top 20 last week at the Bob Hope
