Valhalla Golf Club will host the fourth and final Major of the year and we have free gofl betting tips for the USPGA Championship this week.
The Professional Golfers Association of America was formed in the February of 1916, one month after wealthy store owner, Rodman Wanamaker, had hosted a lunch meeting with the leading professionals of the age to set out the agenda for the formal organisation of the PGA.
In the October of 1916, the very first USPGA Championship was staged, in match play format. The Wanamaker Trophy is the prize come Sunday evening. Valhalla course was designed by Jack Nicklaus in the 1980's and this will be the third time the USPGA Championship will be held here, it was last played at Valhalla in 2000 when Tiger Woods beat Bob May in a playoff.
USPGA Betting Tips
I have looked closely at the last five winners of this event and it seems clear that to win the USPGA Championship you really do need to be a top class performer, who is coming into the event in good form – all of the last five winners finished inside the top 25 at the World Golf Championship – Bridgestone Invitational the week the Major before going on to claim the Wanamaker Trophy. The course looks long also which may favour the longer hitters from the tee box, but the fairways must be found as the rough is said to be very penal around Valhalla. I think the tournament here will be won on the greens, the greens are undulating and are said to be running very fast.
Justin Rose – bet here at 18/1 with Coral.
Justin Rose has become one of the best golfers in the world over the past few months and at last months third Major of the year – The Open – he actually headed the market before finishing the event in 23rd position which I am sure the Englishman will feel a bit disappointed about. This I feel will spur the highly talented Rose on to claim his second Major of his career after he won his first at Merion Golf Club ( US Open ) in 2013 after staving off Phil Mickelson and Jason Day to claim hopefully the first of many Major successes. Rose has notched up 7 top 10's in 15 events with one victory on American soil, which was at the Quicken Loans in June where he beat Shawn Stefani in a playoff. Justin also claimed the Scottish Open title the week before the Open when he beat Kristoffer Broberg by two strokes.
Adam Scott – bet here at 12/1 with Coral.
Adam Scott has been in wonderful form this campaign and I see this form continuing this week at Valhalla. Scott lost his world number 1 ranking spot last week after Rory McIlroy claimed the Bridgestone Invitational and I can see Adam duelling this week with Rory to claim the number 1 spot back off the Northern Irishman . Adam has played in 12 events on the PGA Tour and has made every cut, in fact Scott has made the cut on his last 38 consecutive starts which shows how impressive his play has been. Within those 12 events he has made the top 25 on ten occasions – the tournament that he finished outside the top 25 was the Players Championship at Sawgrass where he finished in 38th after an uncharacteristic first round of 77. Scott also has one victory to his name in America which was at the Crowne Plaza Invitiational where he beat Jason Dufner in a playoff. The Aussie has played well at the USPGA Championship recently he finished in 5th place last year and he also made the top 10 back in 2011.
Henrik Stenson each-way – bet here at 30/1 with Coral.
Henrik Stenson hit form around this time last year after a less than productive early part of 2013, the latter part of 2013 was some of the best display of golf you will see by any golfer in the world and I see the Swede repeating that type of form at the end of 2014 which I think can start here this week at Valhalla. Stenson's form at the end of 2013 was tremendous, he claimed both Tour titles, the first golfer to achieve this accolade – first off he claimed the FedexCup Title then he went on to win the Race To Dubai order of merit in Europe. This campaign has not lived up to expectation for the Swede with no wins so far this season, although he was close to victory at the BMW International Open just a few weeks back when he was beaten in a four man playoff. Stenson is yet to win his first Major title along with other European notables Sergio Garcia, Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter, but I feel he has the belief that he can actually pull this off this week in Valhalla.
Matt Kuchar each-way – bet here at 33/1 with Coral.
Matt Kuchar has never won a Major yet (!!!) but surely someone who is so consistent must eventually claim one of the four elite titles sometime in his career. Matt has time on his side but I think the American could be a Major player this week. Matt has won big tournaments before, he won a World Golf Championship in 2013 when he beat fellow American, Hunter Mahan, in the Match Play event and he also claimed the Memorial Tournament hosted by Jack Nicklaus. The natural progression would say that the American is more than ready to claim one of the Major titles soon. One worry I do have about Kuchar is his form in the previous USPGA Championships he has played – his best performance to date was a 10th place finish back in 2010.
