Golf Betting Tips – Mexico Championship
Free golf betting tips for the first of the WGC events held at the Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City. The course measures. 7,330 yards and plays to a Par of 71, and is tree lined with fairly tight fairways. But the course will play relatively short for the big hitters due to the high altitude and if we can find a few players who are long but fairly accurate of the tee, I think we have a chance of getting our golf tips in the mix. Also the forecast is for no wind, so it’s another reason why I think the Grip and Rip merchants might prosper.
It’s a fairly unknown venue, so I would advise to keep betting stakes to the lower end, and maybe concentrate on players who look as if they are in form or not far off.
WGC Mexico Championship golf betting tips
Sergio Garcia 28/1 E/W Boylesports (6 places)
Sergio Garcia is playing some great stuff at the moment and is the main golf tip for the Mexico Championship. He has a very consistent driving game giving his accurate iron play every chance to set up a multitude of birdies. As always. it when he gets to the green that we have to worry. To be fair he has putted a lot better in recent events, though he missed quite a few short ones at the Honda. Though having the boozed up Yanks insulting you every time you miss a putt can’t be good for Garcia’s sometime brittle mental confidence. I’m sure he will get a much warmer reception in Mexico. It’s actually nice to see him mostly happy on the golf course, and no doubt his impending marriage has helped him in that regard. Maybe a major this year?
Jordan Spieth 9/1 E/W Betfair
Whilst I think the bombers may go very well here, I do think Spieth is worthy of the second golf betting tip and can overcome the disadvantage of being on the shorter side, as he such a brilliant putter. He one of those off putting golfers that must really annoy you in a Sunday final three ball, where he’s generally hitting first of the fairway but just keeps pressuring you as he rolls in those putts. It wouldn’t surprise me if he likes the course that he could run away with this. It was slightly worrying that he didn’t really contend at Riveria, but he’s got all the motivation he needs when he sees Dustin Johnson rise to No 1 in the World Rankings and Rory entering the fray after his rib injury. He’s already been quoted as saying ‘I feel strongly about the way I’m hitting it, probably better than 2016’, so confidence is not lacking.
Gary Woodland 40/1 E/W Boylesports
Well if we are going to back the players with length, step up Mr Woodland for the third golf tip. Not only long, but he’s generally quite straight, and coming of a very good showing at the Honda, he deserves a pick this week. He is flying at the moment, and has had three top ten finishes in his last five starts. Even his rather robotic putting style looks a lot better this year, and his wedge play has also improved immensely over the last few years. He has a hard task master in Butch Harmon as his coach, but this could be the year where Woodland breaks out as a competitor who contends regularly instead of the odd occasion.
