It's crunch time in the race to the Fedex cup with the 3rd leg being battled out this week at Conway farms golf club. Players will be fighting for the top 30 places to gain entry into the end of season Championship which will decide the overall Fedex winner. The course plays 7,216 yards and has a links type feel with lots of sand and fescues of rough. There are also undulating fairways and no doubt there will be wind involved! This is in fact Luke Donald's home course. Luke has had a quiet year and although I think he will do well here, Im not shore he has enough to win it at the moment! but at 40/1 is worth a small bet
Our golf bets have been on fire this year with some great priced winners. The season is coming to a close so we will be looking to add to that this week. There are a couple I fancy that could do well here.
Yet again Tiger woods is favourite, but Im not so sure. Yes he is great and posses an amazing short game, but I think his driving accuracy will let him down again this week. If he sticks with his iron or rescue wood off the tee then he may have a good chance of winning, but its difficult to back him at 13/2 when there is so much class in the field.
We tipped Henrik to win 2 weeks ago at 32/1 and he went on to take the victory, he as without doubt been the best player in the world over the last few months and I would not be surprised to see him win again at the BMW championship. His distance/Accuracy ratio is amazing and if he can get his putter working again he will be very difficult to beat. If his name was 'tiger' he would probably be 2/1 favourite here, but he is available at 14/1
A relatively unknown name but this CAnadian has come a long way this year, with 7 top 10 finishes and currently 5th in the Fedex Standings, Graham simply cannot be ignored. Just take a look at his stats this year. Number 1 in ball striking, 1 in total driving, GIR 3rd. This could definitely be his week and I at least expect him to in there with a fighting chance come Sunday. At odds of 40/1 he just can't be ignored!
Here are the 4 players I will be backing this week
Graham DeLaet @ 40/1
Henrik Stenson @ 14/1
Luke donald @ 40/1
Jordan speith @ 28/1
