Take me to the Beach!
Selections for the PGA Tour
The Pebble Beach
Is it the greatest golf course in the World? Top 10 definitely! Is it the most beautiful golf setting in the World? Top 1 definitely!
The PGA Tour hits Pebble Beach and the top players who have turned down the Saudi money are in California at the Iconic Pebble Beach.
The Winter Tournament is very different to when this venue is set up for a US Open. It is still a test though and the greens though not as quick as in the Summer are still very very tricky.
It is these small but deadly greens that guide me towards our 2 selections against the field. Driving the ball long and reasonably straight is and will always be important but these greens are very small by PGA Tour standards, and you need to master them to win here.

Selections for Pebble Beach Golf Links Legends
Win and Place Jordan Spieth + 1800
Spieth was poor last week and rarely for him missed the cut. I have seen many times him have a huge reaction to bad times and come back swinging.
Spieth will have never stopped practicing and has every shot in the book particularly around the greens. With many top stars not here, I can see him taking another title.
Win and Place Lanto Griffin +4000
The mercurial Griffin seems to produce good week bad week, good week, bad week and he is due to hit the good week in his cycle. This is his time of year, and this is his type of course and he is very strong from 100 yards in. I see him going deep into the week.
It is a great week to look at the sea and make some money so let’s do it.
As always it will be one hell of a ride.
