Course Information
TPC River Highlands, a par 70, 6,841-yard course in Cromwell, Connecticut, 10 miles south of Hartford. The course is a well-balanced golf test with a mixture of long and short holes. The most notable stretch is Nos. 15-17 which play around a four-acre lake. When you include the home hole, the four-hole collection is, according to Stewart Cink, “four of the most exciting finishing holes in a group anywhere in the world.”

Joaquin Niemann (CHI) 40/1 

Currently sitting in sixteenth place on the FedEx Cup rankings, winner at the Greenbrier last year with some of the most impressive golf I have ever witnessed, with rounds of 65-62-68-64.   

Very inconsistent since that win which you can forgive him for. He still managed a top five at the Sentry and only last week I saw that spark back in his game with some impressive golf. He must of lead the strokes gained off the tee at some point last week. It sort of mirrored his stats when he won at the Greenbrier.

So the game is there played well here last year managing a top five place finish. Hell of a lot going for him this week and I feel he will be climbing a little closer to the top fifty in the world spot after this weeks showing.     

Loving this bet here this week. He is around 40/1 everywhere. I am going with William Hill paying 45/1 paying 8 places bet £5 EW.    

Sungjae Im (CHI) 40/1

This is a must for most this week I feel and after coming of a missed cut last week, I can only see this being one of the best times to play him with the bookies, should give us a better price.

So as at today’s date he is 20th in the world rankings, winner already this year at the Honda Classic. Third place at the Arnold Palmer, then last week he missed the cut why was this?     

He had his worst putting week ever on the PGA Tour, sometimes they just don’t drop he tried everything just found them hard to read as did many more top players. I do not think he will putt as bad as this for the rest of the season, I am calling this a big bounce back here this week, he played in the event last year for the first time and managed a top five.   

He was at 40’s yesterday and has now dropped to 35/1 with Paddy Power and BetFair paying 8 places. Will be going with them with another £5 EW bet.   

Jason Day (AUS) 80/1

This is a very big gamble from the team here this week. I looked at his current form and it does not look impressive three missed cuts and a withdrawal at the Arnold Palmer well before lockdown. The team watched his second round at the RBC Heritage and again have followed what they could this week on the range and on some of the practice areas. They liked what they saw and feel it is only a matter of time before he starts making cuts and contenting again.

He is too much of a world class player not to be contending week in week out, but every player goes through patches and with his vertigo problems on and off the course it does not help.

As for stats not much to be that excited about because of the missed cuts but the events he has played well in they are all pretty impressive as you would expect.    

Not going to stake my life on him, but is coming back to a track he likes the look of with his previous results reading 18-MC-12-8. If he makes the cut then we will be excited. Only a £2.50 EW bet here with Sky Bet 80/1 paying 9 places.

Doc Redman (USA) 250/1

This guy is just trending in the right direction for me. All aspects of his game are improving every event he plays in. What caught the eye for us was his overall ball striking when watching him at the Charles Schwab he is one of the best iron players on the PGA Tour fact.

  • Off the Tee – 30th PGA Tour
  • Approach the Green – 36th
  • Tee to Green – 52nd

Not too bad stats for a guy with odds over 200/1 don’t you think. I feel this is his last real week on an easier course lay out before we start the tougher stretch of tournaments with longer yardage like the Detroit GC and Muirfield. Could be his week to shine, he has made 12 cuts out of fourteen so think he will be here the weekend, for me the putter needs to start to hole a few or it could be just another top 30 place.

I am betting £4 EW with Unibet at 250/1 paying 6 places. Will also be placing a top 20 bet with Unibet paying 8/1 £10.       

Brian Harman (USA) 66/1

Going to stay with Brian here again for this week. He played well last week and that weekend push was impressive. So current form? Good.  Box ticked coming back to an event where he has been so close to winning it on three occasions.

Take a look for yourself his previous results here:

2012 24th – 2013 51st – 2014 42nd – 2015 3rd – 2017 35th – 2018 6th – 2019 8th

He was one of the best on overall ball striking as well last week, we also saw a marked improvement on the greens making up nearly half a shot per round, even more reason to go with him. I would have regretted putting him in as like Webb the week before.

Going to stick with a £5 EW bet here again with William Hill with odds at 66/1 paying 8 places.

Sergio Garcia (SPA) 50/1

Sometimes only play Sergio when I feel he will be a banker for us. This is that week for me here.

Sergio has been playing some very nice stuff of late since the return, the main factor for a winner this week will be a strokes gained off the tee, he sits in third place on the PGA Tour with only Bryson and Champ ahead of him.

Missed cut at the Charles Schwab followed that with a top five at the RBC with not really being on the radar following Sunday’s round. Three 65’s in a row to close and confidence with Garcia is key as we know the problems in the past on the greens.    

This changed last week he was nearly a shot better than the field on strokes gained putting WOW. We also all know how well he strikes the ball which he lead most of last week as well, here he will be able to open up a bit more and let it rip. We could see a master class and some low scoring for the Spaniard this week.  

Going to bet £5 EW with William Hill at 50/1 paying 8 places.
