Player: In Gee Chun

Tournament: Evian Championship

Reasons For Support:

I do not often select defending Champions to win again but In Gee Chun 16/1 obviously likes this course as she won here in 2016 with a final score of - 21 with 4 shots back to the two players who came jt 2nd. She is in good form as she came jt 3rd in the Canadian Pacific Women's Open last month before finishing 2nd at the Cambia Portland Classic. She has been putting better lately and conditions this week are predicted to be similar to last year. She is from South Korea and Asian players have a good record in this tournament ( 6 of the last 8 winners have been from Japan or South Korea ) which is a Major and In Gee Chun has already won two Majors even though she is 23 and only joined the LPGA tour in 2016.

Player: Jason Day

Tournament: BMW Championship

Reasons For Support:

Jason Day finished with a good round at the Dell Technologies Championship ending up in 25th but he did finish inside the top ten in the previous two events which lends you to believe the Australian is finding a bit of form late season ahead of a big FedEx Cup finish and the Presidents Cup. 4th at Conway Farms in 2013, Jason Day was a winner in this event and on this course last year. 18/1 best price for Jason Day this week and I think he has a great chance on a course that clearly suits his game.

Player: Jon Rahm

Tournament: BMW Championship

Reasons For Support:

Jon Rahm is available at 14/1 this week and I feel the Spaniard is trending towards a big week in this FedEx Cup Play-Off Series. 3rd at the Northern Trust to open the FedEx, Rahm was 4th in the Dell Technologies Championship and he has left himself in prime position for another decent week to leave himself inside the top 5 heading to East Lake where of course his faith would be in his own hands...win the Tour Championship and he is the FedEx Cup Champion. Those back to back top five finishes, on both occasions Rahm has looked very close to getting right in the mix down the final stretch and Conway Farms should play into the strengths of his game which is length and accuracy of the tee with a strong iron game. Day won here last year with Berger and McIlroy top four which suggests the power game of Rahm combined with current form can see the Spaniard claim this BMW Championship title to take control of the FedEx Cup Series.

Player. Joe Kruger
Event Sun Boardwalk Challenge
Reason

Joe is a player I have been keeping an eye on for a while he tends to struggle on the main European tour in fact he has missed his last three cuts but he takes a drop back in class here going on the African tour in which he generally does well a winner last time in this class and an 8th and 7th on two previous starts on this tour he should go really close again and is way above the majority of this field in terms of ability.

Player: Daniel Berger

Tournament: BMW Championship

Reasons For Support:

Daniel Berger needs a good week at the BMW Championship to get himself into the top five in the FedEx Cup before the Tour Championship as he is currently 11th in the standings. He has been in the top 20 nine times since the start of the season and he won his second PGA Tour title at the FedEx St.Jude Classic. 2nd at the HSBC Champions WGC and the Travelers Championship, Daniel has been quiet so far in the play-offs but he was 2nd at Conway Farms in the 2016 BMW Championship last year so I am going to say he will draw off that and have a really good week. I am backing him at 70/1 which is the best price but plenty of 66/1. :D

Player, Lexi Thompson

Event , The Evian Championship

Reason, Lexi finished down the field in this tournament last year but it came on the back of the Olympic games and she might not have been that prepared for it, but this year she is right at the top of her game, she won her last tournament the Indy Women in Tech Championship and prior to that had 6 top 2 finishers in the 12 tournament she's played in and in between that run of form had a very successful and unbeaten Solheim Cup, she finished second in this tournament back in 2015 and with her current form being so hot she as risen to a world ranking on number 2 and although her price is a bit restrictive she bring enough top current form to win this tournament with something in hand

Player:Justin Rose

Tournament:BMW Championship

Reasons For Support:Justin is beginning to find his best form again and might just be worth following again this week.He has had two top 10s to start off the Fed Ex run in and can build on his good form here.He tied for 13th at Conway Farms in 2015 and can be expected to better that this week. He ranks tenth in birdie average and does seem to play very well this part of the country.He is a player that has now put two good results back to back and might be capable of a run at the top 6 here at a decent price of 30/1.

Player : Lydia Ko

Event : Evian Championship

Reason for Support : I am going with one of my Favourite players Lydia where has she been, she has not won in at least a year something to do with swing change ( if it a'int broke don't fix it). Well I was glad to see she was more like her old self last week in the Indy Women in Tech Championship with some good rounds finishing second to Lexi Thompson who shot 9 under in the first round. I think this is her week she has gone well in this event in the past and did win it in 2015 on 16 under by 6 shots to her old foe Lexi. gl all

With joe Kruger not taking part in the sun Boardwalk I will pick another selection
Player. David Horsey
Event. KLM Open
Reason

David has gone pretty well in recent events 30th in the omega European masters followed a second in the Made In Denmark that was his fourth top ten this year and this KLM is an event he has gone close in on more than one occasion 4th in 2010 and again filling that spot here last year shows he goes well and the Englishman is not shy of a win 6 in total on tour the latest in 2015 in the Made In Denmark event he looks to peak at around this time and could go close again

Player : Joost Luiten

Event : KLM Dutch Open

Reason for Support : As Dutchman Joost Luiten is the favourite for the tournament (16/1 with sky and paddyp), choosing him might seem like a cop out. Maybe so, but I like horses for courses. The defending champion, he won it last year by three strokes with a finishing score of -19 under par. As he also won the event in 2013, you could say he qualifies as a repeat offender. Playing in front of a home crowd can pile on the pressure, but conversely, it can also bring out the best in a player. Admittedly his results this year have been so-so and his best finish was a T7 in June at the Lyoness Open. However, of the 18 events he has played, he has ten Top 30 finishes, so he is fairly solid and reliable in his play---and probably in his temperament too.
