Default The Zurich Classic

Back to regular handicapping this week. Last weeks new course threw everything off for me, although I did win a tiny bit.

I'm going to go with Glover, because I think he will do it. Plays the course well, and is in a bit of a hot streak. Great physique for the game, young, and has won before. Odds better than decent.

Glover to win 33-1

Others who will play well---Atwal, BVP, Harrington, R. S. Johnson

My fade list includes Flesch, Poulter, Tway, Na, Waldorf

I'l be backing and fading these guys when the M/U's come out.

I think this is a good week to try to beat the favorite Mickelson. I like Retief of the logicals the best. I also think David Toms being a Louisiana kid should do well but he hasn't shown much lately and he should have played good last week. I may be looking to play against him.

As for the longshot plays and I am losing my ass on these need one to keep me in the game.

Carlos Franco 80/1 guy is 200 years old one of my favorite players doesn't practice, is in a cool place but has played English Turn really well in the past. Will play him each way and look for match ups with him.

Tom Pernice 66/1--Tommy is playing good--problem is he doesn't win much

Lucas Glover 33/1--Yeah why not--kid has great game.

I think I will look to play against David Toms, Aaron Baddely and a player to be named later.
Buzz, I dont go to games. I buy all the Directv packages and watch them from the comfort of my own home! I dont like listening to all the fans nonsense at games! I pay for blonde women to come over and have sex with my hispanic hottie maid, and sometimes I get involved to make it a threesome! I like to lay in my pool during the day sipping on drinks that have umbrellas!

Glover over Toms +120---I bet him first Buzz, lol
Leaney over Waldorf -107--- Leaney last 4 of 5 cuts made, Duffy? nah.
Hoffman over Poulter -118--- how this guy Hoffman, whom I've barely heard of, gets favored over Poulter, shows us how much a fade Ian really is.
Glover over Crane -110---Crane can get hot, but usually isn't.
Harrington over Westwood -118---Like 'em both, Harry wins though.

Next week I promise to have big favorites in my fade list, so we can all wager less and win more.

GL as usual.

Here's the deal on Glover.

6'2" 195 and I think 25 years old, 1 PGA win in '05. He doesn't look like much on television, but in person, he looks like a golf machine. Second only to Vaughn Taylor.

Entered 12 times this year---4 top 10's, 8 top 25's, 9 made cuts. One million made already. 6, T10, T4, T20, T33, T5, T17, T12, T21. This tournament last year, tied for 3rd.

8th in the world for driving, and 6th in the world for birdies. Luke is a bona-fide birdie factory. If in the rough, it's usually to the right, 90% recovery rate. 50% out of greenside bunkers, his only chink that I can tell.

Plus I can tell you what he smokes and drinks, if you need it.

If this isn't the week, it will be this year sometime.
