AT&T Byron Nelson

 

Byron Nelson- Formerly hed at TPC Four Seasons, but as of 2018 at Trinity Forest golf Club Dallas, TX- Par 71 7371 yards Ben Crenshaw co-designed, treeless inland, no rough as such as bordered by buffalo grass waste, no water hazards, Trinity Zoysiagrass fairways (bouncy, promotes flyers), Champion UltraDwarf Bermuda greens, avg 13500sq ft, 11ft stimp, swirling run off areas on undulating greens. Previously a landfill site. Wind only true defence. Large landing areas on fairway off tee. -23 score 2018 inaugural visit. GIR, proximity to pin, 2nd hardest to putt from within 10ft, but hard to interpret on going stats strengths and strokes gained from only one visit, although if no wind, expect score similar to last year, so birdies/eaglies come into the mix

On basic stats I have Koepka miles clear, but not at 13/2. Next I have Cauley 100/1 Bozzelli 250/1 Todd 200/1 Baddeley 100/1

Cauley is 3rd= for proximity to hole Bozzelli rankec top for strokes gained putting. I would have either of the next two, with only other potential to replace one of them being Wyndham Clark who is fairly strong on the strokes gained putting stat too

No racing that I'm betting on and so I can get down to looking at something else!

I'm the same with golf as I am with racing and love a bit of track form. Last years first three home were Wise, Leishmann and three tied for third place....Grace, Mitchell and Spaun.

This track has some of the largest greens on the tour and I'm thinking that putting, more than anything, will find us a winner.

I like Leishmann, Mitchell and an outsider, Perez.

Keep an eye on a guy called Malnati, too. In 15 tournaments this season he's made the cut nine times, has one top 10 finish and six times in the top 25. Not likely to win it but Sky Bet have him at 175/1 and he'll finish above some of those shorter if it comes down to putting....as looks likely.

The weather down there has been as wet as last year and the first two named seemed to enjoy that place in those conditions.

Brooks Koepka looks the best driver/putter so I will split £20 ew between him 15/2  Jimmy Walker 90/1 and a couple of bigger priced  contenders.  Kevin Na 40/1 , Marc Lieshman 25/1  Patrick Reed 33/1 and at bigger prices Luke Donald 150/1 and Ernie Els 300/1.

£5 ew Brooks Koepka, £3 ew Jimmy Walker,  £1 ew Kevin Na, £1 ew Marc Leishman
