As far as golf winners go, Weekly Golf Value’s J.T.Poston (45/1) won the John Deere Classic over in the States about as comfortably and stress free as they come. After shooting a first round 62 to lead by four shots or so on Day 1, he didn’t ever leave top spot, and even through the often nervy back-nice on the final day, he never really looked like relinquishing his lead.
With a share of a place in the same tournament, and a place poition secured in Europe with 100/1 shot Thorbjorn Olesen (also a ‘placer’ for The Rainmaker) it was a decent week for WGV.
Overall it was a profitable week with a small overall profit for The Rainmaker, PGA Profit and Tour Tips. The only big disappointment was Golf Insider who blanked in all tournaments and by doing so has now reached a new depth of drawdown for 2022 to date.
An interesting email during the week from GI re the ne LIV Tour. In essence, the Golf Insider feels this breakaway Tour is here to stay and what we’re seeing is a bit of a restructure in the golfing year that we’re going to have to get used to. I’ve seen elsewhere it written that it is just a fad on shaky ground. I guess time will tell which viewpoint turns out to be the more accurate. All moral and ethical issues around the wider subject of sportswashing aside (and in the real world, it is of course not so easy to dismiss these!), from a betting point of view I guess it will provide more tournaments for our tipsters to sink their teeth into.
