The Detroit Golf Club is a private golf club located in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan in the middle of a neighbourhood area on north side of the city near the University of Detroit Mercy and Palmer Woods Historic District. Bert Way designed the original 6-hole course. It was expanded to 9 holes, and finally Donald Ross built the current 36-hole course. The club grounds crew maintains two courses, the North and the South Course. The head pro is Josh Upson. Starting in 2019, Detroit Golf Club will host the Rocket Mortgage Classic, a new annual PGA Tour event.

Taking a punt with Sepp this week on the back of what the team have said who have followed a lot of his play this season. They followed him over the week at the AT&T Byron Nelson where he showed a good greens in regulation play as well as his driving and his accuracy seemed to be a marked improvement.

Not much really stands out for me but am trusting the team here and with them being at the event and already followed some of his golf in practice he looks well worth a bet and in good form.

He was 11TH here in 2019 and then another good result in 2020 with a top ten, so seems to be improving year on year so can he go a step nearer for us this week let’s hope so.

When we looked through his results and records over the past few years we were surprised to see he has not won since the Greenbrier back in 2019. This season however he has been knocking on the door at the Sony Open and again at the Sentry of Champions. For me it’s only a matter of time before the next win comes he is so talented.

Top thirty in the world player and a solid performer every week, high percentage of greens hit and makes a lot of birdies. The driver stats we picked up on when he was on the range we set up our own launch pad and the numbers back were all showing improvement covering a number of shot shapes. This will be another plus around here.

Should make the cut and give us some value for money.

I have followed Doc a lot this season. He seems to be playing some of his best golf of late and came really close to breaking his PGA Tour duck at the Palmetto Championship where he was runner up to Higgo, if you remember that week Higgo also beat our pick Vegas by one shot. ARRHHH

We also followed his last round action and he looked composed and feel the win will be coming soon. By the end of the 2021 season he will win an event and will break into the world’s top one hundred.

The putter is his stronger part of his game and if that turns up here he could be picking up some silverware come Sunday evening.

To play golf at Mount Juliet is to experience up to 7,200 yards of visionary, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Designed Parkland, set across 180 acres of rolling Irish countryside. Magnificent specimen trees, miles of rushing river and verdant pastures all play their part, bringing sensational natural beauty to a course that is ranked among the world’s finest parkland courses and has played host to numerous unforgettable tournaments. From hosting a Tiger Woods-winning Championship in 2002, to recently being voted Ireland’s Best Parkland Golf Course by the Golfer’s Guide to Ireland and being chosen to host The 2020 Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open…

We continue to both maintain and evolve a course that is eye-catching from the moment you step up to the first tee-off and unforgettable by the time you tally up at the 18th hole.

Sam for me is ready to get another ET win under his belt very soon and I see no reason why the win could not come here this week. He had two great wins last year picking up the Hero Open and the Celtic Classic where we were present and he looked unbeatable at both of those events.  

From what we have seen from him of late he is in that kind of grove again having picked up a top twenty at the Scandinavian and then a good top five at the BMW in Germany last week.

One of our caddies was with him in round two where he shot one of the worst scores of the day, and to pull it back over the weekend is something that ticked this box for me here. Could go low.

I feel it’s a great time to play Eddie and after missing the cut last week we are also getting better value from the bookies as well.

So from his missed cut at the Gran Canaria Open he has had some good results, just outside the top ten at the Canary Islands Championship and the Betfred British Masters. The game seems to be clicking in nicely like I said last week’s track did not suit Eddie’s eye and nor was it for a few other well backed players.

He is a creature of comfort and you can never write this guy off when playing back in the UK and Ireland. His previous results at the Irish Open read 22-MC-2-8-MC-4

I feel he sails into the weekend and could get the job done for us.

Ryan Fox (NZ) 35/1

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.9.2″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”|600|||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ custom_margin=”-18px|||||”]

Our great friend from New Zealand, Ryan has always been a good bet for us over the years he never lets us down when we have placed a bet on him.

Form is a big factor when playing in any Open championship style event, and this is no different. Take a look at his last three events:

  • Porsche Open – 11TH
  • Scandinavian Mixed – 12TH
  • BMW Open – 14TH

We followed his back nine at the BMW and were surprised to see him not finish higher to be fair. Top ten was well within his grasp.

His record at the Irish Open is a very mixed bag hence the bigger price he has gone fourth and second and then the last two times here he has gone missed cut twice. But I am taking his current form into this week and he should again be at worst a top ten place.
