PGA TOUR: Zurich Classic Of New Orleans
The TPC of Louisiana hosts this event for the ninth time. Designed by Pete Dye it is long at over 7,500 yards featuring numerous water hazards and expansive waste areas. Somewhat surprisingly for a course so long short hitters have a decent record here.
OUTRIGHT: Cameron Tringale, 0.5 pts win and place 60/1
Tringale looks like a young player ready to make a breakthrough and that has been borne out by his results this year with 4 top fifteen finishes including a fourth place in Houston three weeks ago. He already boasts a top twenty and a top ten finish in this event in the last three years.
OUTRIGHT: Rory Sabbatini, 0.5 pts win and place 80/1
Sabbatini’s top ten at Hilton Head last week, very much a course not suited to his game, puts him very much in the frame for this week at a venue he has already shone at with a tied second place in 2009. He looks good value at these odds.
