2011 The Heritage Picks

The Heritage Picks
Pick 1: Ian Poulter E/W @ 40/1 (general) Ball striking and accuracy are the premium around the Harbour Town links and Poulter is great at controlling his shot shape off the tee. He was on the radar for the Heritage last year but didn't compete. Great short putter and can take advantage on very small greens. Has the intelligence to plot his way around the course.

Remember: For better value and much bigger odds on outright golf betting, a Betfair exchange account is an essential betting tool. Trading is the best strategy for consistent long term profits and Betfair offer a Free £25 matched bet on sign up. For more info and examples, see my trading strategy here. If you're betting E/W, take advantage of Bet365's offer up to £200 in free bets that you can use on this week's Heritage.

Pick 2: Francesco Molinari E/W @ 40/1 (PP) Not too much course experience but if ball striking is a premium I can't ignore Molinari @ 40's who is 1 of the best from tee to green in the game....


Pick 3: Bo Van Pelt E/W @ 40/1 (general) Let us down last week but the windy conditions made it a lottery. Again another great ball striker with great driving ability and it shows with his record at the Heritage.

Pick 4: Brian Gay at 35/1 (general) Demolished the field at Hilton Head a couple of years ago and the Harbour town course couldn't be more suited. If he gets his putter working again on the aforementioned small greens, he will be right up there.

The Heritage sleeper Picks: (Fabulous prices on Betfair for trading purposes) A couple of guys with great records here are at big prices this week, namely Boo Weekley and Davis Love but with their lack of recent form I'll look towards Heath Slocum and Ben curtis both in the triple figure odds range. Slocum is in the mould of Brian Gay, short accurate plotter and good putter with a standout record at the Heritage and Curtis, while his record isn't so good, he's hitting some good form this season and has all the attributes to tackle the course. 77% accuracy off the tee.

  1. Hey Nic,

    New to this golf betting strategy. At what odds should you lay the golfers. For example on betfair I can lay Gay at 15/1 now where I put money on him at 37/1. Should I wait for his odds to go lower or can I just enter my own backers stake?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Great tips!!!

  2. Hi, it wouldn't be profitable in the long run to trade him out now. If you wanted you could lay him for your initial stake on him to cover your liability but in the long term, you should wait till after 3 rounds at the earliest to maximise potential earnings

  3. Hi Nic

    I'm new too on this kind of trading. Mainly because I don't understand much of golf rules. I only know that they have to put the ball in the hole. :-)
    So, if you don't mind I have 4 newbie questions:
    - How can I know when the 3rd round is finished?
    - How many rounds exists on a tournment?
    - Have all tournments the same number of rounds?
    - Is there any livescore site for golf?

    Thanks
    David Almeida
