This week's PGA Tour golf event comes in the shape of the Zurich Classic Of New Orleans. After a good run in the golf betting, the last few weeks have been poor with Robert Karlsson blowing 3 shots in his last 3 holes on Sunday turning what looked like a nice profit into a 3rd empty handed week in a row on the PGA tour. Not to mention KJ Choi burning up the course in round 1 only to fall asleep. Let's hope the Zurich classic can get us back on track.
Plenty of value to sink your teeth into in this weeks Zurich Classic as the field for me isn't very impressive towards the top end of the market, with an out of form Stricker and an Ian Poulter who may lack a bit of distance to make the most out of this course, the 2 market leaders. Next up for the bookmakers are KJ Choi, Charles Howell III and Steve Marino, of which none justify such short odds in my opinion, although I do like the look of Marino on the TPC Louisiana course.
The TPC Louisiana course
The course itself will play about 7,340 yards to a par of 72. Scoring is usually pretty low and "bombers" tend to do well around here. Fairways are pretty generous and rough usualy not too penal and key here is hitting the greens. They are protected by horrible pot bunkers and you must try to avoid as many wayward approaches as possible or suffer the consequences. Getting it out there off the tee will obviously leave you with an easier approach. Bubba Watson with his distance off the tee and great GIR stats and some course form is the man most prominent on my radar.
Stay tuned for expert Zurich Classic Of New Orleans value picks.....
