2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational

Fantasy Golf Picks and Betting Odds for the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational


Bay Hill Club & Lodge, Bay Hill, Florida – Bay Hill is a legendary track that will play as a 7400-yard, par 72 this week. Ample water hazards and tall, thick rough will make for a nice challenge as well as force some drivers to stay in the bag on a few tee boxes. The par 5s will be ripe for scoring and the par 3s will play relatively long.

Bombers tend to do well here, but precision is more important. Upon looking at the numbers it is immediately noticeable that Tiger Woods’ return to form has skewed the odds some. That’s probably because he’s won four of his five starts at Bay Hill (the last one being in 2013).

This week we’ll be looking at SG Approach, Par-5 Scoring, SG Putting, and some course history (there’s tons of it).

Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort, Palm Harbor, Florida – The Copperhead Course at Innisbrook has been a staple on the PGA rotation for over 15 years. It is a tree-lined track that will force the players to leave driver in the bag on most tees.

The field this week is a strong one, and it sees a number of players returning from what must have been a grueling week in Mexico. We’ll be looking at strong iron players, Par-3 Scoring, and Scrambling when making our picks this week.



2017  – 14   Adam Hadwin   (Runner Up:   -13   Patrick Cantlay)

2016  -7   Charl Schwartzel   (Runner Up, Playoff:   Bill Haas)

2018 WGC Mexico Championship


Club de Golf Chapultepec, Naucalpan, Mexico – The Club de Golf Chapultepec is a challenging 7,330-yard, par 71. That yardage might seem kind of long; however, since the course rests at 7500 feet above sea level, the course ends up playing as one of the shorter ones the players will see all year. That said, it remains a test and it will force players to shape shots both left to right and right to left in order to find themselves in ideal positions.

The kikuyu fairways/rough and poa annua greens are a combination that suits the West Coast swing players as well as those from South Africa. The course, overall, has a classical feel to it and the European players especially tend to like it.

The field this week is S-T-A-C-K-E-D, with only the best in the world invited to play. We will be favoring SGT2G, SGAPP, BOB Percentage, and Par-4 Scoring.

NOTE: There is only one year of course history at the Club de Golf Chapultepec.

2018 Honda Classic

Fantasy Golf Picks and Betting Odds for the 2018 Honda Classic


The Champion Course at PGA National, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida – The PGA moves to the East Coast this week when it shows up in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. This part of the country is a bit of a golf mecca where quite a few pros choose to live. And, this event continues the 2018 influx of talent from the European Tour with some new faces gearing up for a run at the Masters in just a few weeks.

The Champion Course at PGA National is a relatively short and challenging track. The narrow fairways, small, fast greens, and swirling winds always make the golf here a test. This week we’ll be favoring SGAPP, SGPutting, Par-4 Scoring, and course history (as there is a lot to draw from).



2017  – 12   Rickie Fowler   (Runners Up:   -8   Morgan Hoffmann, Gary Woodland)

2016  – 9   Adam Scott   (Runners Up:   -8   Sergio Garcia)

2018 Genesis Open

Fantasy Golf Picks and Betting Odds for the 2018 Genesis Open



Riviera Country Club, Pacific Palisades, California – Legendary Riviera Country Club is the host this week for an insanely strong field. Four of the top eight in the OWGR are here in the form of Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, and Rory McIlroy. Tiger Woods is back and in the kind of form that looks like he will contend at some point this year. Phil Mickelson has not so quietly notched back-to-back top fives. There is even a whole host of in-form Euro Tour names that will be teeing it up: Tommy Fleetwood, Alex Noren, Thomas Pieters, Branden Grace, Rafael Cabrera Bello, and Hao Tong Li. All of this makes for what is sure to be a fabulous week of super pro golf.

The course is a beast at 7,322 yards. It’s narrow and tree-lined, long and complex. The greens are firm, fast, and small. And, while the kikuyu rough isn’t really heavy, it can be really tricky to play from.

Good driving will be a key this week. Decent driving length is important, too (although not entirely necessary, it’s not a bad idea to favor 300-plus averages). Other stats that will be worth weighing are Strokes Gained Putting, Proximity 150-175, and some course history (knowledge of some of the green complexes is a big advantage).



2017  – 17   Dustin Johnson   (Runners Up:   -12   Scott Brown, Thomas Pieters)

2016  – 15   Bubba Watson   (Runners Up:   -14   Jason Kokrak, Adam Scott)

2015  – 6   James Hahn   (Runners Up, Playoff:   Paul Casey, Dustin Johnson)

2014  – 15   Bubba Watson   (Runner Up:  -13   Dustin Johnson)

2013  – 11   John Merrick  (Runner Up, Playoff:   Charlie Beljan)
