Golf Tips Checker Packages

BROOKS KOEPKA 28/1 3PTS EW 6PLS BYL 13:36 TEE

Brooks has already been a joint FRL here shooting 65 in 2023 and 66 in 2019, he's also very fond of here finishing T2-2023, T2- 2019, T11- 2017, T33- 2016, T21- 2015, Koepka has been steady this year without winning but more importantly, he shot 65 Hong Kong, 66-66 at Jeddah and we know he's capable of going low here.


TONY FINAU 40/1-1 PT EW 6PLS CORAL 09:36 TEE

Big Tony has been struggling of late with the putter but shot a 62 in his last comp at Houston, Finau has shot a few low rounds here with a 66 in 2021 and 2018.


SUNGJAE IM 70/1 0.5PTS EW 6PLS BYL 12:48 TEE

Im is definitely having a quiet season, like all my other picks i've gone for course knowledge and course form, Im is a former FRL, just like Brooks and Rose, he shot 67 in 2022 to take the FRL, he also shot 66 in 2020 and 67 in 2023 and in 2022. His past course form reads T16-2023, T8-2022, MC-2021, T2 2020, he MC at the Valspar but two previous comps he gained 9.53 TTG- 5.46 BS -4.35 OTT - 1.00 APP, it's a step in the right direction possible towards FRL.


JUSTIN ROSE 80/1 0.5PTS EW 7PLS BET UK 12:12 TEE

Rose is simply the FRL king here, he's led or co-led four times here, 65-2021, 68 - 2018 tied, 69-2007 tied, 67-2004, Rose has one missed cut out of 18 attempts which is a pretty remarkable achievement, he has two T2 and T5- T7 -T8, yes im definitely taking a chance but horses for courses and Justin has a firm chance here once again of taking the first round lead.
