The Dean & DeLuca Invitational 2017, Betting Preview

Jordan Spieth will be looking to return to winning form when he tees it up at the Colonial Country Club in Texas from the 25th to the 28th of May.

 

A challenging par 70 layout the Colonial Country Club requires some thought in terms of plotting your way around the course and distance is not a crucial ingredient to success. The course is tree lined with plenty of bunkers and water to penalise wayward shots. Good ball strikers usually fare well and the winner is likely to be well up in the Greens in regulation stats. Spieth returns to defend his title and is the 10/1 favourite ahead of classy sorts like Jon Rahm and US Masters Champion Sergio Garcia.

Selections

 

Marc Leishman each way at 45/1

Leishman has solid course form and he delivered his best showing yet with a T13 finish in 2016. He also finished T13 at the Byron Nelson last week to end a lean spell and he looks well priced and ready to go close this week.

 

Ryan Palmer each way at 35/1

Palmer was in hot form a few weeks back where he chalked up 3 successive top 15 finishes including 2 top 10’s. He them missed a cut bit showed with a top 30 finish last week that his game is in good shape and he could capitalise at a course where he has 3 top 5 finishes in the last 3 years.

 

Sean O’Hair each way at 110/1

O’Hair has been on my radar a few times this season as his game appears to be returning to somewhere close to where it was a decade ago. His recent course form is nothing to write home about but his game has been off for some time and he does have some strong showings here in the more distant past.
