This week’s PGA Tour event started and finished a day early so as not to clash with the big Sunday night NFL play-offs, and it turned out to be a good Saturday night as Weekly Golf Value’s Luke List (80/1) went head to head with Golf Insider’s Will Zalatoris (28/1) in a play-off of their own. Always nice when this happens, for obvious resasons!
As it happened it was List that ended victorious and in doing so got Weekly Golf Value’s 2022 up and running and nicely into profit. That they had Jon Rahm (7s) also place meant they got two returns from just the three golfers they had involved.
I feel a bit for Golf Insider which has had more than their fair share of near misses over the past few months. They just have to keep plugging away and eventually they’ll catch the breaks, I’m sure. Sungjae Im was another of their to place at 28/1. Close, but no cigar this week.
PGA Profit was another to gain some returns as Jason Day (100/1) and Cameron Tringale (90/1) found the frame. I was supposed to place these bets via the Exchanges but forgot, using my bookie accounts to place the bets before remembering and sticking all the European Tour bets down on Smarkets. Sadly the latter pulled a blank.
Justin Rose (66/1) placed for Tour Tips to give them their first return for the year, although Rose tying for a place meant the pay out was reduced.
Not a week Ben Coley will want to dwell on for too long as he blanked in both tournaments.
Overall a small profit on the week.
