Adam Scott clinched the Barclays on Sunday night but there would have been several other players who surely felt they should have won, most notably Justin Rose and Gary Woodland.
The playoffs continue this week with a Friday start and Monday finish to The Deutsche Bank in Boston with the extra day’s rest a big help to Tiger Woods, who played the final few holes in agony on Sunday.
Nevertheless, he only missed out on a play-off by inches, and while it is hard to go in with any confidence on Tiger considering his back problem, he is playing really well at the moment and at 15/2 is worth a win saver to cover the weeks other bets.
I think Rory Mcllroy at 16/1 might prove to be a sound investment; there was enough improvement last week to suggest he is not far away from returning to form and I expect him to go well here.
Meanwhile Matt Kuchar at 33/1 is also good value providing you can forget his horror finish on Sunday and my final selection here, Jordan Spieth, has a far better chance than the odds of 50/1 suggest.
The race to reach Gleneagles next September and be part of European Ryder Cup Team starts this week at Celtic Manor with the ISPS Handa Wales Open.
Chris Wood, at 33/1, is my main fancy here to add this title to the Qatar Masters he won earlier in the year. Wood has been playing some great golf recently and looks overpriced here in a wide-open event where it’s 20/1 the field.
Ross Fisher at 22/1 should also be backed while Brooks Koepka at 50/1 and Tom Lewis at 125/1 are the two bigger prices that have caught my eye. The Ryder Cup build up starts here and there will be plenty of twists and turns over next 12 months to gain a prized spot in that European team.
