FREE GOLF BETTING GUIDE AND TIPS
Designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish and set in the rugged Sonoran Desert surrounded by the stunning McDowell Mountains, the world famous Stadium Course plays host once again to the Waste Management Phoenix Open, made famous by the 20,000 fans that surround the par 3 16th, where golf meets football and WWF.
Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish, probably never dreamed it would become famous throughout the world. "Really it was designed as just a little bridge hole to get to the 17th and 18th," said Weiskopf. "Here is this little par 3 that doesn't seem to be much of a challenge." Morrish said the hole has become a "rallying point for the unduly enthusiastic and sobriety-challenged portion of the gallery."
Some of the professionals competing in this week’s tournament will bring gifts to try and appease the crowd that surround this hole. A tee shot that misses the green or a putt that is left short is greeted by a crescendo of boos, it’s not a hole for the faint hearted.
The 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th are what make this an exciting tournament course. The 17th is a drivable par 4, "Short par 4s are hard to do correctly," Weiskopf said. "If you are going to lay up, I want the players to have the pressure of a tough chip and putt”. So remember while watching this tournament your money isn’t safe until your player has holed out on the 18th.

My tips to Win:
It’s a shame Hideki Matsuyama 12/1 – with SportingBet – was injured last year and couldn’t play in this event as he has gone forth, runner-up, win, win in his four starts here and obviously loves this tournament. We normally expect Hideki to be challenging most weeks and last week’s Top 5 at the Farmers was the first time he has really competed on this year’s wraparound season, but it’s perfect timing for the tournament he loves to win.
This week’s defending champion is Gary Woodland 20/1 – with PaddyPower – who won in a play-off last year. Gary has five Top 10 finishes from his seven starts so far and that includes two runner-up places and another Top 5 and he will be looking to put in a good defence of his title this week.
Webb Simpson 22/1 – with PaddyPower – had a runner-up finish here a couple of years ago and has three other Top 10s in this event. From his three starts on the wraparound season so far Webb has not been outside the Top 15 and if you add that to his two Top 10s at the end of last season, Simpsons’ golf game is in good shape coming into this week.
I have always felt Cameron Smith 33/1 – with SportingBet – could be the next top player to come out of Australia and he has only been outside the Top 25 once in his five starts on the wraparound season. A Top 10 at last weekends Farmers should see him teeing it up this week in confident mood.
With four Top 10s including a runner-up from his six starts on the wraparound season Adam Hadwin 40/1 – with Ladbrokes – has started this season in great form and he has two Top 20s here from his four starts.
I think these are good odds for Martin Laird 80/1 – with SportingBet – in a tournament that he seems to have grown into and enjoys playing in. Martin is one of those players who lacks consistency as you can tell from his results already this season, with two Top 15 finishes and two missed cuts from his six starts, but when he gets to an event he enjoys he normally performs well.
Try Nick Watney 175/1 – with 10Bet
As always good luck
