The Genesis Invitational

I've had a piece on this tournament sent to me by Andrew....let's see what you've got!

The Genesis invitational tees off on Thursday at Riviera Country Club at Pacific Palisades, California.

John Rahm, a strong distance putter who is playing great golf at the moment and at 10/1 with Betfair is a straight win bet for me.

Bryson De Chambeau, capable of great golf at this course and unlucky not to win on the European Tour 2 weeks ago.

Price of 50/1 with Skybet is too big, in my opinion.

Abraham Ancer who is in great form and has a great record in California. A class act who is underrated by the bookies odds 60/1 Betfair.

Luke List has the right profile to thrive at the Riviera, played well at Phoenix before a terrible last round. With 8 places up for grabs the 200/1 with Skybet is tempting.

Also personally I have to keep the faith with Xander Schauffele who has been very prolific in the last two years in the making the frame in the big events. A classy operator who has the ability to play tracks well where accuracy and length give you an advantage. Think he will be suited here, odds 22/1 at Skybet and Betfair.

Liked Andrew's points and will be following his train of thought re Jon Rahm and Xander Schauffele.

Always look for Brandt Snedeker in California, but don't see him in the field, so, other bets will be Collin Morikawa (hadn't heard of him before) who was very impressive for a youngster the other week, at 45s and Russell Knox to fly the flag (150s) - if only he could putt 🙂

 

Chubb Classic - tee off Friday.

I think the Champions Tour offers a less competitive field with Betfair paying 6 places. Ernie is now 50 and lost in a play off in his one and only event this year. However, he is giving the opposition a chance this week, so my main hope is another South African- Retief Goosen 12/1- the man with the golden swing and in good form.

More speculative is Monty at 25/1- doing ok but maybe not as well as expected. Lastly,relative newcomer Woody Austin at 16/1. One of the "youngsters" he is playing well this season.

 

 

I've played three:

Justin Thomas, Patrick Cantley and Tony Finau

I feel like I'm doing a passable impression of a lemming as two of those were regulars on my golf betting slips last year!
