This weeks picks are rather thin on the ground on the main tours with the Deutsche Bank Championship headlining the PGA tour and the Italian Open in Europe. I have made just one pick in each as there are nine other tour events to look at the chances are there are some better value bets to be found elsewhere and these will be put up on Twitter as and when I find them!!
As the Fedex Playoffs progress the chances of finding any value bets in my opinion diminishes - with smaller fields each week and with form very exposed I find it harder and harder. However one player stood out to me in the shape of Webb Simpson who as a Major winner and a winner of this event simply shouldn't be the price he is. I admit his recent form has been a bit hit and miss but he has three top five finishes in his last nine starts and appears to be a fine player of TPC courses so at 80/1 I put up 0.3 ew but 66/1 is still a fair price. If you wanted an outsider then I couldn't put you off Geoff Ogilvy @ 250/1 with Coral as the recent winner has been 2nd,5th, 6th and 7th around Boston in the past.
On the European tour much talk will be about the Italian Open being the final qualifying event for this years Ryder Cup but I will go for a player has no concern being a pick or not. Italian parkland courses are often very similar to those in South Africa and players from that country have a good record in Italy - we nearly got 200/1 shot Mulroy across the line a few years ago. George Coetzee is a player I don't think I have ever backed before as he was always going off at stupidly short prices until he finally won earlier this year. His form went off the boil in the spring but recent starts have been encouraging with an 18th in the Open and 17th in the Barracuda where he went off at just 33/1. He now returns to Europe to an event where he has been solid in the past with finishes of 13th and 11th so reperesents a decent bet - 0.4 ew 50/1 mORe
