Tournament Preview – Waste Management Phoenix Open

This is consistently one of the best weeks in terms of fan-player interaction and also attendance with pretty much a football stadium stand erected at the 16th hole at the TPC Scottsdale in Phoenix, Arizona. Scoring tends to be fairly good so expect a score not far off the 20-under par mark if the weather is anyway decent for golf which it is likely to be be going on the forecast.

John Deasy is going for Graeme DeLaet to win this week in Arizona, best price 40/1 with 888sport and 33/1 with the majority of the rest. He is fresh off his second career runner-up finish and has finished no worse than a T7 in his last three starts. Top 10s in seven of his last 14 tournaments indicates that he is on a roll and looks good to pick up a win soon. His performance in the President’s Cup was also superb and he looks to have the mettle for playing under pressure and also notching up low scores.

One of John’s each way bets is for Keegan Bradley (top price 25/1 with most bookmakers).Tied for 16th at Torrey Pines, extending his string of top 20s on the PGA TOUR to seven in a row, the nephew of LPGA Tour legend Pat Bradley remains in good form. He has Top 25s in both starts at TPC Scottsdale and definitely has the ability and mentality to go low. One of John’s recent picks, Roberto Castro (100/1) is just waiting to catch fire at an event and this might be it.
