Golf Betting: Genesis Invitational tips - Advantage big hitting ball strikers

It's known as a ball strikers Paradise and those with length and solid ball striking ability always come to the fore at Riviera for the Genesis Invitational



The longer hitters, especially with the iron flight, have the advantage around Riviera country club. Multiple times more so when it plays soft, basically eliminating the shorter guys chances of winning the Genesis (see 2019 Genesis leaderboard)

2020 Genesis Invitational Tips Guide

Genesis Invitational target player proflie:

Long off the tee and with the mid irons, with the ability to shape it both ways (predominantly with a fade), is the concoction for success at Riviera

The course - Riviera CC, 7,322 yards, par 71

Key features: Pretty small greens, usually some of the hardest to find on the PGA Tour season. Kikuyu strain of grass along fairways and around greens (sticky). Augusta like aesthetics. Tall trees and some pine straw and you often get away with spraying it if lucky. Deep greenside bunkers

Premium on: must take advantage of the easy par 5s at the Genesis Invitational. Finding the right side of the Riviera fairways/ or even Kikuyu for optimal approach angle into some tucked pin positions on elevated surfaces. Long irons.

Chicken nuggets: for the Genesis Invitational

Each year, the Genesis Invitational proves one of the hardest set of greens to hole out short putts on.

Bubba Watson, amongst others, deliberately misses some fairways for better approach angles (sometimes plays to other fairways rather than just the rough)

The bombers absolutely dominated again in 2019 at the Genesis Invitational. Conditions were soft in the beginning of the week

Featured Tip : Marc Leishman 50/1 ew, FRL ew, Opened 33s-50s this week, all prices bigger than my estimated 25/1 (and that's with no margin built in). IMO one of the most underrated golfers of all time and he comes here off the back of a world class showing where he beat up a grade A field on a beast of a track, yet is still somewhat unnoticed in the odds. This week I'm following a theme of big hitting faders of the golf ball - ideal profile for Riviera. I've noted Leishman was smashing the par 5s here in recent years, and he owns a couple of top 5 finishes at Riviera in last 4.

Tip 2: Collin Morikawa 60/1 EW, FRL ew
