This week sees the return of the World Golf Championship (WGC) at one of the most iconic golf courses on the US Tour, The Firestone Country Club, in Akron, Ohio has a long history having hosted PGA Tour events for over five decades. The South Course with its great views of the Firestone water tower provides a challenging, test.

Harvey Firestone, founder of the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company, established the Firestone Country Club in the late 1920s as a park for his employees. Bert Way designed the original layout back in 1929, it has since had a redesign by Robert Trent Jones in 1960. It’s a tough track at 7,400 yards with two halves of 35 making a par 70.

Tiger Woods has won this event an incredible seven times since is original inception as the WGC NEC Invitational back in 1999. The course it’s self seems to have a marmite effect on visiting golfers, the handicapped golfer seems to find the layout tedious with many of the holes running long parallel to each other, with its narrow tree lined fairways. While on the other hand the professionals seem to find it an honest and demanding test of their abilities.

My tips to win:

This weeks favourite is not a hard choice and Jordan Spieth 17/2 – with BlackType – will be trying to make it three wins in three starts after his finish at The Open. When you study Spieth’s game and the way he can still score when he is missing fairways you wouldn’t put it past the Texan to finish the rest of the year moping up the silverware every time he tees it up.

One player who will want to put an end to that winning streak is Dustin Johnson 11/1 – with 888Sport – who is the defending champion this week and will be going for his own three out of three after winning the first two WGC events this year. It has taken a while for Dustin to come back from his rib injury and with good signs at The Open with his 64 in the third round and a Top 10 at Canadian Open at the weekend he will be in confident mood this week.

Jon Rahm 25/1 – with SportingBet – also has a great record in the WGC events so far this year with a third place and losing to Johnson in the WGC Match-play final and he will be looking to add one of the major tour events to his CV after bagging his first wins on both the PGA and European Tours. Jon will know doubt be disappointed in his US Open and The Open performances and will be looking to put those two bad finishes to bed this week.

My each-way tips:

I think this is a great price for Adam Scott 33/1 – with BetFred – who now seems more confident with his putting style. I must admit after Top 10 finishes at both the Masters and Players tournaments I expected more of a challenge at both the US Open and The Open Championships. Adam is a past winner of this event and has several Top 10 finishes over the Firestone Country Club course.

One player who does seem to be on the brink of breaking through and becoming a major championship winner is Branden Grace 50/1 – with UniBet – who’s stunning 62 at Royal Birkdale see him finish just outside of the Top 5. Grace won his first PGA Tour event last year but has yet to win this year, but finishing inside the Top 25 for last three years here improving each year – 22nd, 17th, 10th –and if that trend continues, well you do the math!!

My outside tip:

I was surprised to see Ross Fisher 150/1 – with 32Red – this far down the betting odds especially after his third place finish at the WGC event in Mexico earlier in the year. Ross had six Top 10 finishes from ten starts since that tournament and his putting seems to have improved since he started playing the TaylorMade Spider putter and I think he is worth a quid each-way this week.
