Finding the Fade for the Valspar This Weekend


Strong Support System for Dustin

With the Great One’s daughter and her baby in tow, Dustin Johnson overcame his recent past to win last week.  Family standing by you is a necessary ingredient but not as helpful as the fourth round leader losing a five stroke lead in the first five holes.  Bubba caught and passed him and the field to take a two stroke lead.  He came crashing down to Earth.  The man who caught them is the hottest on the planet when he makes the cut.  Nestled between being sent home before the weekend twice is Dustin who got a fourth, second, and won last week’s WGC-Cadillac.  Some people are whispering the name John Daly about him but until he lets himself go physically, their should be no comparisons to the blonde tub that wasted his talents.

Valspar Championships

This tournament will not paint the town red due to bad scheduling.  Right after this is the Arnold Palmer, so many of the higher profile players are opting for the week off.  NBC will have their steady coverage of the event.  Here are some of the best players to try it this weekend.

  • Adam Scott
  • Henrik Stenson
  • Jordan Spieth
  • Jim Furyk
  • Matt Kuchar


Ice Cold : Justin Rose

Ready to Win : Henrik Stenson

We like Henrik in this one.  He looked like he was battling the course last week but we saw progress.  Whatever kinks that are in his game look ready to be ironed out.  Meanwhile being top ten in the world has scared no one.  Justin Rose has looked very off and his form is worsening.  There is little chance for him in this one.  In fact, any reasonable vig should b entertained as few are entering this tourney stumbling more than him.  There you have it.  Henrik to win and Justin to fade in first round matchups.  GL and we will see you next time at Apex Golf Betting.
