Hofmans Golf Picks – US PGA and European Tour Thursday 11th July 2013


So last week I had two picks in contention but drew a blank its being a bit quiet over last few weeks after a hot streak lets hope to getting it back together this week before the Open.

Scottish Open


Shane Lowry is in right frame of mind to do well right now, thumb a solid showing at the Irish Open means he can go well here with much less pressure on him to do well. he has a 14th and a 11th from his two visits here so its obvious it suits his game. Martin Laird has been doing his business mostly on us tour and hes been doing well at it too, mind he was a top 20 here so he can be expected to improve here. Kledjsen was tied 5th here last year hes struggled badly to get over the winning line.9.  T8 in France last weekend gives me some big hope. Finally Ross Fisher has good stats for this course and hes someone i am expecting to come back to his best now.

Shane Lowry 28/1 (sky bet 6 places)

Martin Laird 45/1 (paddypower 6 places)

Soren Kledjsen 60/1 (various 6 places)

Ross Fisher 50/1 (various 6 places)


John Deere Classic

Lets presist with Charley Hoffman he just seems like hes not far off that big day.  He ticks so many boxes with his low scoring that hes hit and he likes this course too. Ryan Moore has been on my radar of late he is misfiring at times but he is a class act and quiet likes these low scoring courses. 6th at Quail, 13th at Muirfield and 7th at TPC River Highlands point to doing well here. A few people have gone and mentioned Guthrie to do well here. His game could well suit here. He is local to here ansd goes and plays these courses pretty well. Kirk and Streelman both look options at bigger prices for this too.

C.Hoffman 40/1 boylesports

Ryan Moore  28/1 various

Luke Guthrie 66/1 various

Chris Kirk 70/1 sportingbet

Kevin Streelman 50/1 betvictor (6 places)
