I've been doing what I do and compiling the tips from the leading golf tipsters. In total I checked 142 tips for the Fortinet Championship. This is the first event of the new season and was formally called the Safeway Open. I'll be posting 4 popular golf betting tips for this event.
1st up Charley Hoffman. A surprise inclusion for me given he's not got a very good record at Silverado. His 3 appearances at this track have produced results of 56th - MC - MC. Last season he struck the ball beautifully as highlighted by his stats. 24th in Strokes Gained (SG) Tee to Green, 25th in SG: Off the Tee and 16th in SG: Approach.
This has led to a really consistent run of results which has seen Hoffman miss just 1 of his last 16 cuts. His best finishes during this spell were T3 at Colonial and 2nd in the Valero Texas Open. The concern there is they were both in Texas where Hoffman often produces his best golf. This week we are in California.
Still he's one of the most backed players this week. This feature puts the trust in my approved list of golf tipsters. So Hoffman it is. William Hill are offering 50/1 and 8 places at 1/5 the odds for the EW part of the bet. 0.8pts stake equates to 0.4pts EW, just wanted to clarify that.
