Kaymer’s driver to win the BMW?

Martin KaymerIt is a dual weekend, The Crowne Plaza at The Colonial in Texas and, The BMW Championships at Wentworth Golf Club, Surrey, England

Literally, ladies and gentlemen, a second tier event in Texas with Tiger missing and a top line event in the UK, with Tiger missing. Either way, TV ratings will be well down

I have analysed as usual my PGA Tour event and although offering assistance with selection you will have to work with second day odds from the likes of Bet365 and Betfair. I apologise for this but was unfortunately in Italy, the last two days away from my Internet.

Lets Talk Colonial first…

As the crow flies the two courses (last week and this week) are about 20 miles apart but in reality they are as different as chalk and cheese, Only similarity is that they are pan flat {as is Texas} but with the average green being over 6000 sq feet these are 4400, This is target golf with a capital T, very tight fairways and a 17 metre drop from 1st tee to 18th green which gives a huge drop in the “perspective” of your shot .

So what do we need here is a ball striking superhuman, who can hit it straight and crack any iron onto a “sixpence”, carry a hot putter that can sink ’em from 25 feet regularly. G-I-R top 10 ranking is a must, scrambling is a must, in fact anything straight is a “must”. Calling Fred Funk, oh sorry, he went upstairs to the Champions Tour!

Anyway two other stats stick out like a sore thumb firstly, as they say in Football  parlance, “this has been a game of two halves”, slight exageration here but its certainly a game of 12 holes against six. There are two par threes and two par fours that are the hardest in golf to get par on and they are surrounded by two par fives that are far and away the easiest on Tour.

Secondly a certain, sssssh Sergio Garcia, is the only first time winner. Well, since the inaugural winner, rem, 60 odd years ago. On average it takes an eight time “appearer” to pick up the laurels and the money.

From a TV view point the cameras are either high up following the flight of the ball, or staring at golfers feet watching them putt. On a hot 90 degree day (threatened to be, all four days), this is a tiring par 70. 7200 yards to walk round let alone whack it as well, if your watching, look for frustrated umpires and referees give warnings left, right and centre, for slow play.

As stated the big boys are at the BMW in old UK so a chance for some to shine, some to add a few shekels to the required limit of number 125 on the money list which, trust me, is getting close to $1,000,000 every season, in win prize money. Saying that we are past half way so, not only do the “moving day on Saturday” but this is the time to pull a digit from a certain part of the anatomy and get moving as a season on the whole

So my 4 to follow are:

1 – Bo Van Pelt – Got the course, needs to flow, 10th time here, fantastic record noted by the bookies at lowest for three years at 30/1. Go Go Pudden!!

2 -Hot Man Kevin Streelman Been putting it on a sixpence required facility here,one more week come on Kev!!!! 25/1

3 – Marc Leishman , as hot as any players over the last 6 weeks cant leave out 33/1

4 – Reliable Matt Kuchar , he must be peeved at being left out of the BMW , cant see why unless its his choice , big player at 20/1

” If I biff it well I could win”

Zach Johnson, Roberto Castro and Ryan Palmer, respectively 12/1, 150/1 and 40/1.They all CAN play, HAVE been playing, Are playing well-ish. One of them is going to creep in soon!

Under the Radar

Chris kirk and Swede, David Lingmerth respectively 45/1 and 110/1. Both have enough money to survive but, let’s see some trophies, boys!

THE BMW Championship

To me this is a simple matter. Everybody listening to me knows wen worth. World Class manicured course, in the heart of the stockbroker belt, Surrey. Takes a class act to win it and, they need to be bang in form. I never thought I would be saying this two weeks ago but it’s a German sponsored Championship and I expect a German Champion.

MARTIN KAYMER – not a doubt in my mind. catch his odds now!

Talk to you when you are older!
