Crowne Plaza Invitational Picks:
Pick 1: Jason Day E/W @ E/W @ 20/1 (BET365) Unfortunately Jason Day has been backed into favourite but I was always going to back him at the Crowne Plaza Invitational if he was in form. Coming off a top 10 last week and has shown brilliant form at his local Colonial, finishing just 1 shot out of the playoff in 2009. Good potential trading opportunity (see below).

Pick 2: Zach Johnson E/W @ 22/1 (general) Defending Crowne Plaza Invitational champion Johnson is just coming into form in 2011. Top 15 finish last week at the Players, closing with a round of -6. He destroyed the course here last year and premium this week is all about accuracy on the tight tree lined track, which Johnson's game is all about......
Pick 3: David Toms E/W @ 35/1 (Boylesports) Toms could have and should have won last week in an outstanding quality field and now tees it up at a course that suits him down to the ground. 1 of the most accurate and experienced players on tour and no reason why he shouldn't challenge strongly again at the Crowne Plaza Invitational.
Pick 4: Brian Gay E/W @ 40/1 (BET365) Again, really coming into form in recent weeks, culminating in a top 15 last week beside Johnson. Possibly the straightest driver on tour and 1 of the best putters. Has course form at Colonial.
Note: If you're betting E/W, take advantage of Bet365's offer up to £200 in free bets to use on this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational.
Pick 5: Steve Marino E/W @ 40/1 (general) It won't be long until Marino gets his break through win on the PGA Tour and he almost did at the Crowne Plaza Invitational in 2009, being 1 of the trio in the playoff. His approach shot accuracy will be key here to the narrow Colonial greens. Coming off a top 20 last week.
Crowne Plaza Invitational Sleeper Pick
Pick 6: Sean O' Hair E/W @ 70/1(Stanjames) Continuing his return to form having went back to his old coach last month. Played better than his top 20 would suggest last week, just making mistakes at crucial times. Huge price this week where his ball striking ability could be a big advantage. Another great trading opportunity.
