The TPC at Summerlin in Las Vegas has been the host class for this event for more than ten decades and we all know lots of it. It takes an element of strategy, the course yields to plenty of birdies although extremely reduced scores are needed to contend here. With wide fairways you would think that it’s a simple task off the tee but those decided to overpower it might meet some issue with fairway bunkers. Many times in your chances along with the fairways will prove elusive and it only takes a few pockets of no progress here to get you from the 8 ball early.
The most appealing bet of the week is Cameron Smith. Granted he has not pulled any trees up but his CV suggests it won’t be long before he lands a decent pgatour event. His credentials are better here in the field. Some performances in quality disciplines have backed up two Aussie PGA Championships. Two top 5s at US Open and the Masters is enormously impressive to date. He included a top 20 to this tally in Portrush in the Summer at the Open too. Several performances are mentioned this season, most especially in Mexico where he finished 6th at elevation which Summerlin is played at also. 10th back in 2016 appears to be ahead of the handicapper and certainly is a constructive. Each way bet of the week.
2.5pts each-way C.Smith?? 66/1 (1/5 7 locations )
Brooks Koepka is a powerful tempting 10/1 and drifting around the exchanges this week. An element of this is to the layoff never teed it up. Nevertheless two top 5 finishes here in Summerlin indicates he has the tools to move well here. You have to contemplate Koepka round the double figure mark when Adam Scott is your 4th favorite here. Scott got off to a popular a week only to tumble down the leaderboard over the upcoming few days it was a reminder to not go overboard round the 14/1 markers. To think Brooks arrives here only 4pts briefer he has to be regarded as a winning prospect. The course doesn’t suit the bomber as much as it could have a few years ago but Koepka coming the green and demonstrated how he could cope with a tricky assignment from the tee if he first won the St Jude. I can not let him move unbacked when currently sitting 12.0 on the exchanges. Try if going to the high street get yourself the improved win only price out there.
2.5pts WIN B.Koepka 19/2??(Enhanced Win Only)
Short sport has shown important here around the greens down the years especially so Dylan Frittelli has to be looked at carefully. The Southern African has taken off with just two wins plus a PGA triumph a few months back at the John Deere. The John Deere is similar that it requires brief game and a good strategy to succeed. Low scores are inevitable there and Frittelli may become a specialist at these type of evaluations. 6th and 7th that the past two months is hugely impressive and he can be expected to kick on out there with assurance brimming. Given how good is short game and his present form it’d be no surprise should he make a mockery of the price.
1pt each-way D.Frittelli 50/1 (1/5 8 locations )
Andrew Putnam is just another who has been impress. 11 produced cuts is a sign of how persistent he’s become. Also a top 25 finish at Wentworth along with A 5 in Scotland is admirable for somebody who could ply his trade Stateside. Meditation has proved profitable for many Americans in recent years and Putnam is clued into how this can benefit your sport. Now 50 Putnam has to be a threat in events like these. The simple fact that he has won altitude before in the Barracuda could prove to be beneficial. Looks overpriced to land another name.
