The golfer formerly known as “Hefty” took a tumble this week. No, he did not get off the health regimen and mow down some mallowmars. He has been a fixture in the top 25 for quite a while. In fact, find out the last time Mickelson did not adorn the world rankings in the top quarter of a hundred. Also on this edition of Apex Golf Betting, we give a preview of the OHL classic. It is in Mexico so it is back to normal wagering instead of late night wagering. All this coming at you right now here at APEX.
Top 25 since 1995
Back in the 95 US Open, a young left handed golfer got to a tie in fourth to nudge himself into the top 25. From there, Phil would forge a legacy like no other. He would be the second ranked golfer for an incredible 270 weeks in the rankings. Finally after that accomplishment and two decades later, he has slipped from the top 25. He is certain Hall of Fame material with his five majors and that incredible streak of runner up rankings.
MayaKoba Birdie Festival
This is a course made for scoring. A Greg Norman course that caters to the straight ball hitter. In fact the first year out as a PGA Event, Fred Funk tore it apart when he was far from his prime. Now what will really highlight this is the fact that the tour has given this event a full share of Fex Ex points. The result is a much greater field being here for this one. No Jordan or the other top three but plenty of golfers that have the skill to torch the course.
Traits to Tail
This course fails to get in the top 40 in scrambling to greens. What it means is that way ward drives are not readily punished. The par threes are really easy here. In fact the scoring average is the second lowest on the entire tour list of events. Lastly, look for your golfers to that are near the top in par 4 scoring to do excellent here. One can do no wrong going with Matt Kuchar as a top three future in this one.
Golf Channel will have extensive coverage in this one. With Matt, Angel Cabrera, Gramem McDowell, and Keegan Bradley, the entertainment value will be high in this one. Go with our free pick future of Kuchar top three. Good fortune and we will see you next time here at APEX Golf Betting.
