New: Course Fit Manual 2022

AT & T In-play trading - Pebble Dash

A tough first day over the three course rotation yesterday and a trio of players are on the radar at juicy odds today. Greg Owen was on the pre tournament shortlist with two top fives and another top ten here in his last seven appearances but poor form leading up to the event left me with a watching brief. He carded a round of -5 yesterday at Monterey and currently trades at 60.0

Kevin Stadler (90.0) sits on -3 and shows progressive current form of T27/11, with seven of his last eight rounds in the sixties and the more relaxed nature of the pro-am event could see the big man thrive. Luke Guthrie is arguably the one to watch this year from the second tour graduate list and posted 68 at Pebble on day one. Six birdies and an eagle in his round, and with the easiest course (Shore course - Monterey) still to come, could be a factor this week. He currently trades at 75.0.

The trading plan is to stake 1.5 units each on Guthrie and Stadler, with 2 units on Owen, for a total 5 unit outlay. I'll be looking to lay back the full five units should any player hit odds of 7.0 and then green up after round 3 should they continue to run well.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Expected strokes gained course fit (xSGF) can be predicted using my model below. For prospective golf betting tips it projects ahead of time how many shots a player is expected to pick up per round on average on a particular golf course. It's weighed against a neutral golf course of the same rating. For example: Sam Horsfield at Celtic Manor vs TPC Southwind. This number will also portray ability level in terms of strokes gained total. Click "find out more" under the course fit golf betting model for info.

What is Progressive Form in Golf Betting?

Progressive form in golf betting differs from current form in that players are showing a trend in the right direction in their recent scoring. Trending form has a high predictive value in golf betting and can also catch players under the radar at an inflated price vs their true betting odds. For example - a player shows form of T40 - 24 - 24, but last week he was in the leading PGA Tour group on Sunday with Tiger Woods and had a bad round due to nerves. His finishing position may not fully capture his actual form.
