Poulter’s Blunder and the Next PGA Stop


Disaster quotient is a metric or stat that one could develop that would help golf handicapping immensely.  This came up in conversation as Ian Poulter lined up for that shank that derailed his whole Honda Open.  He was so much in the lead that my friends and I relegated this event to one of the background sets.  In a moment of comradery, one of the them shouted to look at this.

The stats on the screen displayed the level of dominance he had over the field.  Poof just like that, the one shank unraveled a fine tournament for him. Confidence gone, he was never the same.  Here at Apex Golf Betting, we will search to see if such a quantification is available for golf.

WGC – Cadillac Championship

How many events will it take for Rory to knock off the rust?  A course at 7,500 yards is an endurance test.  The length is not the largest concern as the fairways are line with trees all around.  Miami is the scene where the Golf Channel and NBC will provide all day coverage for all four rounds.  Last year’s champ went a little crazy on the bravado proclaiming himself to be Top Five material.  Patrick Reed has cracked the top twenty but has a long way to go to reach this goal.

  • What Might Help Reed defend here is his length in combination with scrambling ability when he does not find fairways.  Top five in this category makes him potent in this one.
  • Hint : For a profitable approach.  Fade Rory in the first round.  Cant say that very often for much longer but doing so here is profitable
  • Free Pick : Jason Day +135 (1st Round) over Rory
