PGA Pro Conscripted
Sang Moon Bae lost his ongoing court case. At issue was the mandatory military service tour of two years in his native South Korea. Since they are at war with the North, all men between 18 and 35 must do their time. Now that his appeal is lost, he must make his way back immediately to begin his tour. He has gone from over $2M this year to a stipend of $130 a month. KJ Choi is the another tour pro that had to go through this but he did his service before hitting the tour.
RBC in a Nutshell
One would figure that some other sites in Europe would get to see ore pros after the British open but the PGA nixed this. A week after Dustin Johnson’s win, we are in Ontario Canada this week. Glen Abby was the first course where Jack Nicklaus did by himself. This in part helped lure five of the top fifteen players in the world. It is surprising that the coverage for this is somewhat limited to only three hours on the Golf Channel during Thursday and Friday. CBS gets the last two days with the same scant coverage. Watch the RBC Canadian Open when you can this weeked. Even if we can not tail our selections as hard as we want, we have the following players to wager on for a positive expectation.
- Jason Day got close but could not close the British Open. He is here this week with his stellar significant stats. 23rd in greens and second for birdie and better scoring, he is set up well for success here.
- Fade Furyk – Dont care how well he did in between the US Open and British, he suffered in the slams. Now with little inspiration, he will use this to fine tune his game. Fade as some juicy underdogs could do well heads up against him.
- Bubba is a pass. Two missed cuts out of his last four gives him little stability this week.
So let us hope on the profit train as it rolls into America’s Bookie. Take Jason Day in most heads up. Jim Furyk should be aggressively faded. Good fortune in our wagers and we will speak next time here at APEX Golf Betting.
