Pay day has arrived early this month after our very own Biff Tannen kindly offered to dip into his sports almanac and pull us out a winner or two ahead of the Valero Texas Open

Favourite Watch
Rickie Fowler is the clear favourite at 10/1 even though he’s a debutant!!

Doc’s Top-5 Best Each Way Bets


Aaron Baddeley 50/1  
Arrives off a T7 in the Dominican Republic where he bested the field putting just like at the Arnie (T17). The Aussie has been on my radar of late and on a relatively low key week before The Masters, he’s primed for a big finish.(Also 60/1 to be first round leader which is very tempting!)

Jason Kokrak 28/1
Made some great cash for us last time out with a T2 at The Valspar and that along with a T10 at The Arnie and T9 at The Honda made for a great run. Rested after a week off, he arrives here the in-form player without really having form on this course. Still worth an each way flutter at those odds.

Billy Horschel 25/1
One of my favourite players on Tour and has knocked on the door at San Antonio several times. T26 at The Players and some flashes of class at the match play reflected his season so far but with three top-5’s on this course and a T11 here last year, he’ll be desperate to grab a sixth Tour win this week.

Ryan Moore 40/1
I do hate tipping Ryan Moore because he’s as reliable as a fart after a night of Guinness but he has the driving and iron game for San Antonio. T20 at The Players, missed the cut at the Valspar last time out and solo 7th in San Antonio last year.

Charley Hoffman 40/1
Broke back from three consecutive missed cuts with a T18 at The Valspar and that will have done The Hoff the world of good heading back to the Texas where he won in 2016 and has four other top-10 finishes. More of a sentimental pick but my sentiment’s account is still in credit!

Long Odds Glory Shots
Russell Henley 70/1: Needs a good showing.
Sung Kang 80/1: Good showings at The Arnie and Valspar. T6 in 2017.
