Lecom Suncaost Classic
Danny Walker
25 points ew 175/1
Apologies for being rather tardy with this rather short write up on the weeks only bet. It’s a new event and a new course and a time when I usually keep the powder dry but I had to throw one player into the mix which clearly caused a little controversy on Twitter. The course at Lakeland Ranch is next to where Walker grew up and played throughout High School – the question is how much weight to give that factor. If a player is simply affiliated to a club I give it no weight at all but when we are using a course for the first time then there has to be some advantage. The unknown fact is whether or not the player actually likes the course and whether he can play it under tournament conditions and how he can deal with the pressure of playing at home.
One thing I know is that Walker is probably capable of winning at this level, in his first season on a pro tour in Canada last year he won the final event of the season which got him a free pass into the Q School which he went on to win. It’s been an indifferent start to his career however – missing his last three cuts but maybe he just hasn’t adjusted to the travel involved and anyways his win in Canada came on the back of two missed cuts. I guess time will tell very quickly! MORE
