If your basketball bracket is already in the recycle bin, a chance at redemption is here for you in the form of the WGC-Dell Match Play. A match play event has been a fixture on Tour since 1999 and golf’s version of March Madness is the true home to Cinderellas as the higher seed won 40% of the time in the first round when the Tour used the single elimination format. Some would say it is the harder of the March tourneys to pick, but don’t worry because T-Walker has your free golf selections.
2019 is shaping up to be a huge season on the PGA Tour and for golf bettors betting big names it has been profitable! In just the first two months of PGA competition, we have seen favorites like Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar win with top dogs Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and most recently Rory McIlroy also in the winner’s circle. Today we take a look at The Valspar field which is rather strong for a regular Tour stop. So where is the golf betting value? Ted Walker gives his golf picks

The Arnold Palmer Invitational is on tap this week and there are few names in golf history that occupy the same rarefied air as the legendary Arnie. Rory McIlroy defends his 2018 Palmer crown against a field that is a bit short at just 120 players but very strong considering the qualifications necessary to earn the invite to Bay Hill. Rory is the 6/1 betting favorite but Brooks Koepka, Justin Rose and last year’s runner-up Bryson DeChambeau are all out to make sure Rory comes up short in his title defense. Ted Walker breaks down the odds and gives his PGA picks!
The Champion Course at PGA National has been a tough egg to crack since taking over host duties for the Honda in 2007. The tournament record at PGA National is just 13-under and 5-under was good enough to win in 2007. The winning total has failed to reach 10-under in nine of twelve editions here so look for scores to be modest to low as 2018 ended with just eleven players under par. Like most Nicklaus courses, there is a premium on shot making into the greens.
