This week the tour heads to The Old White TPC course in White Sulphur Spings, WV for the Greenbrier Classic. This will be a challenging 7274 yd par 70. Scott Stallings picked up the win here last year after a 3 way playoff with Bill Haas and Bob Estes. Driving accuracy, GIR and putting will be key this week, the course ranked 13/51 in difficulty last season. Also the storm that hit Congressional last week also hit Old White with similar damage to trees etc.. Weather will also be an issue this week with rain expected Thur & Fri possibly throughout the week.
A number of big names will be on hand this week including lasts weeks winner Tiger Woods, Phil M. Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson, this years US Open Champ Webb Simpson and others. Tiger is a big fav once again this week despite the fact he's never played this event, currently 3.5/4.5-1 at most books.
Last week I finished 2nd for the third week in a row also ended up with solo 3rd and T-4th. Disappointing despite going 12-6 H2H I really like to pick the winner and kiss the trophy. The weather will have an impact on all my plays this week mainly reducing the volume in outright and H2H plays. $BOL$

Added an outright play on D. Johnson.. 20-1 just to good to pass up for a player of his caliber. Although he his new to this event, he did win the St. Jude four weeks ago in his first apperance at TPC Southwind. His scoring average is very good and he does rank 12th on tour in driving distance, he scrambles well and although he is not the most accurate, he does rank 6th on tour in driving % from 300+. Add him to your card. $BOL$

good luck this week golf wizzard!! i tried to chat some last week but i was having major comp issues!! i could have used your advise. my first losing week of the season!! not by much, but i was down about 3.5 units plus my picks to win of Jday and DJ. Hoping for much better results this week!! taking simpson over tiger round 1. the odds are just too good to pass on. worth a unit play. let me know if you have any h2h for the pm plays? i will get a few to run bye you mid am. you deserve a win this week! hope you nail it!! Stay on DJ, he will pay out before those plays out weigh the risk! GD LK! thanks for sharing got on a couple of the tourney H2h plays!!
bol this week. i had a comfortably positive last week without the very rare gratuity. looking to improve this week. liking your solid win picks. simpson is off to a good start.
Sup guys? I went out last night didn't get to post any top ten or first round plays. Just passing on first round anyway, went 1-2 1st rd last week then 8-2 rd 2,3,4. Webb Simpson is off to a good start lets hope he keeps playing well. I think he can win this week. Vijay posts a 63 today thats a little surprising since he is also a newcomer to this event. That's his lowest round of the year, I may look to fade him tomorrow or Saturday. Eldrick shoots a 71, kinda nice to see. The worse he plays the more I like my picks especially after last week. Enjoy the golf, I'll have second round plays posted later. $BOL$
wow i dont know what is going on there!? DJ is playing like he is on some sort of super juice?! He has been all over the place, missing greens from VERY short distances away and putting like a complete chump! and i have him against Bill Haas for the PM h2h. then you have byrd playing like his balls have magnets on them seeking cups like it is automatic! Once again am plays strong and pm plays appear to be giving some back! lets crush em tomorrow! i am in FULL agreement on a big FADE on Singh. he has been playing much better as of late, but he cannot and will not play like this tomorrow? we should see some nice odds on him. the back side seems to be better scoring wise having the two par 5s. Let's find us some WINNERS!! GD LK!
Yo bwiz, yeah five bog's on the card for Johnson today I was expecting better play from him.. If he plays better tomorrow I might back him in a third round play. Might fade byrd rd 2.. Good luck tomorrow, round 2 plays posted shortly.
Second Round Match-Ups:
*C. Pettersson +118 over J. Byrd $$WINNER$$
*K. Na -112 over K.J. Choi $$WINNER$$
*B. Curtis -102 over J. Huh Push
*D. Johnson -109 over B. Haas $$WINNER$$
