Player: Bubba Watson

Tournament: RBC Canadian Open

Reasons For Support:

Tied 27th at the 146th Open Championship last week, Bubba opened with a 68 and followed it with three steady rounds without really building up any momentum. He closed at the John Deere Classic the week before with a couple of 68's and the event prior at the Greenbrier Classic he was right in the mix at the halfway stage. Bubba's game is not too far away right now from a big week, 6th at the Memorial Tournament recently confirms that. Many traveling from Royal Birkdale over to Canada you would ideally ignore for the RBC Canadian Open but the event is at Glen Abbey in Oakville, Ontario. Bubba's wife Angie is from nearby Pickering in Ontario and this will be a family trip with the two visiting her parents while Watson plays in the event. The last time he teed it up in the RBC Canadian Open was two years ago and he finished second to Jason Day. Bubba Watson to go close this week.

Player: Chez Reavie

Tournament: RBC Canadian Open

Reasons For Support:

Chez Reavie is the type of player who does well when returning to courses he has had success on before and his only PGA Tour title came in 2008 at Glen Abbey and at the RBC Canadian Open. He was 4th at the FedEx St.Jude Classic then 16th in the U.S. Open which was a very good performance from Reavie. 43rd in the Travelers and 39th in the John Deere Classic, Chez had rounds of 66 both weeks and has been playing alot better lately so my thinking is a return to Canada and Glen Abbey can bring success again.

Player: Shanshan Feng

Tournament: Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open

Reasons For Support:

This tournament is stronger than it has been previously as it has become part of the LPGA tour. I find Shanshan Feng 18/1 to be a difficult player to predict but she did play well in her latest LPGA event earlier this month when she finished jt 5th at the U S Open so I am hoping that she will follow that up with another decent effort here. She has a lot of experience and has won 7 LPGA events including one in 2017 and she has won a Major and obtained top 10 finishes in eleven other Majors. She has also won on the Ladies European tour and the Japanese tour. She showed that she is capable of performing well on links courses when jt 2nd at the Open in 2014 and this links course should suit her as it is not a long one.

Player: David Hearn

Tournament: RBC Canadian Open

Reasons For Support:

3rd in 2015 at the RBC Canadian Open, the home favourite David Hearn has been playing well for a couple of months now on the PGA Tour. His results read 27th at the Barbasol last week, 14th at the Greenbrier Classic and last month 10th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic and 8th at the Travelers Championship. Heading home to Canada with the fan support in his national open I like Hearn's chance of going better than his third in 2015. :lol:

Player. Erik Van Rooyen
Event Swedish challenge
Reason

The South African sits just under the 300 mark in the world rankings and is having his best year so far gaining his first win on this challenge tour and has been going along quite nicely under the radar with good consistent finishes without breaking onto the leader board he won this year in his native Africa in the eye of Africa event and with finishes like 7th 12th 13th and 17th among his last 5 events shows he isn't far away although Aaron Rai looks head and shoulders above the challenge tour he isn't really a betting proposition being so short in price and Van Rooyen looks a very viable alternative at a reasonable price.

Player : Alexander Levy

Event : European Open

Reason for support : I will go with the defending champion Alexander who always tries to put up a good defence of his crowns he has won in the past. Its true that this is a different course than last year but it should still suit his attacking style with open fairways. He has not done to much on the links course's of the last few weeks but should be geared up for this. Alexander last win was the Volvo china open at the end of April another tournament he has won before in the past. gl all.

Player : Bernhard Langer

Event : European Senior Tour----the Senior Open Championship

Reason for support: Yes, yes, I'm going for points on the board at pathetically short odds but nowt wrong with that! Had to laugh at seeing a suggestion that the Seniors/Champions Tour should be retitled the Bernhard Langer Tour---on both sides of the Atlantic, it can seem like that much of the time. The last time that the Senior Open was held at Porthcawl was 2014, and Langer won it by 13 strokes....and won it wire-to-wire too. What I so admire about him is that his appetite for winning remains undiminished. He was maddened (''hurt'' in his own words) at finishing T2 in the Constellation Championship in mid-July---he believed he could have won it. If he had, it would have been his fourth consecutive victory in that event. His record this season on the Senior Tour is 12 events played (and 12 cuts made, so it's pretty much guaranteed you'll get a decent run for your money). They have delivered him three wins, two second places and two third places.

Player Tony Finau

Event Canadian Open

Reason Tony Finau is yet to win a tournament in 2017 but he as had 5 top ten finishers and did well in the OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP with a finish of tied 27th, he been playing consistent golf all year and slowly improving his world ranking and his ranking of 64th is the highest he's ever been, although he finished well down the field in last years Canadian Open he should put in a better show this year judging by his current form

Player: Ben Martin

Event: Canadian Open

Reason for Support: Thou he missed the cut here last year Ben Martin is having a far better season this year. Two top tens and a top 20 at the wells Fargo and his latest at the Barbasol finishing tied 6th puts him in good form arriving here. Shot a 64 in the third round and only lost out by 3 shots. In the John Deere in August he shot a 62 and led the field with in total birdies with 25 and also the fewest putts of anyone in the field. Is very capable of a low score and he has an all important win on tour in 2015. Hasn't missed a cut in his last ten tournaments played and I think is a good outside bet for a place at least.

Player: Joost Luiten

Tournament: European Open

Reasons: Luiten has been playing consistently well this year having only missed one cut, and the new course is a long one with 5 par fives and Luiten is one of the longer drivers in the field who could use this to his advantage. One criticism of Luiten is that he hasn't turned his solid play into any particularly impressive result (one top 10 at the Lyoness) however with the reduced competitiveness of this field I feel this is his best chance. He impressed me in the Open last week until a disappointing last day, if he can re-find that form he should definitely have a chance here.
