After an exciting U.S. Open, the PGA Tour enters its final chapter for 2019. The British Open at Royal Portrush is a month away and the FedEx finish at East Lake comes prior to the end of August so there is precious little time left for the PGA pros to make something of their season if they haven’t already. Here are our picks to make some noise and win their head to head matches as well as our best value selections for tourney winner.
This new PGA Tour schedule certainly gives a different feel to the season and we are somehow already at the third Major of the year. It seems like yesterday when Tiger was just finishing up his remarkable career comeback at Augusta but that was two months ago and we breezed through Brooks Koepka dominating the PGA Championship. As we go through the meat of the summer Tour stops, the best usually rise to the top and that coincides nicely with the USGA’s mission to identify the best golfer at this national championship. But how about the best value bet, AKA the best return on our investment? Ted Walker reviews the odds and gives his picks!
Dustin Johnson leads the field this week and he will be looking to defend his 2018 Canadian Open crown. Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka are the other headliners in the field with Bubba Watson, Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson as part of a strong veteran contenders group. But are the big names worthy of this week’s golf picks? Ted Walker breaks down the odds to win as well as head to head matchups and gives his Canadian Open picks.
The Tiger v. Jack debate received a little boost with Woods’ most recent Green Jacket win but no matter who ends up with more Majors, Jack will always have a claim to golf’s throne.

Can Tiger Wood, as one of the favorites, get another win at Memorial? Ted has your PGA pick.
The Charles Schwab Challenge has seen a steady rotation of title sponsors and even some years without a sponsor so the name has changed often but Colonial County Club has been a fixture as the host. The invitational status of this tournament consistently makes this field one of the strongest of the regular stops. Let’s take a look at the strongest golfers and their odds to win in Texas.
