Waste Management Phoenix Open target proflie:

Relatively long and relatively straight, with a main course of high trajectory approaches gets it done at TPC Scottsdale. Desert style golf exp and TPC Scottsdale experience itself an advantage. You got to take the risk to get the reward here.

The course - TPC Scottsdale Par 71, 7261

Key features: Desert terrain. Immaculate soccer stadium like aesthetics, Risk reward theme especially on the back 9 (the scoring 9). Raucous crowds especially around signature stadium hole - par 3 16th.

Premium on: Total driving, Strokes gained approach, Proximity to the hole, high ball flight on approach

Chicken nuggets:

Always reminds me of my pitch and putt days - pins hidden behind frontal bunkers and must come in super high with spin control. Many PGA Tour pros reside or have connections to Scottsdale. Jon Rahm unfortunately practices here a lot. Tony Finau always seems to play badly here (Distance control problems).

Golf Player Profiles



Please note that player attribute ratings are derived from the official PGA Tour and European Tour golf stats, and updated with a rolling average each golf betting year for precision.

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.
