Victoria National Golf Club hosts the Web.com this week and it is one of the hardest courses on the tour this year, playing well over its Par 72 value. The rough is thick and is 'a blend of four bluegrass varieties' that are 'maintained in their natural states', meaning that the rough will feel softer and faster than most players are used to should it be found. The greens tend to play fast and in turn make putting tricky so a player who ranks highly in the putting stats should be favoured this week. Bogey Avoidance should also be follwed when selecting a player as holes 17 and 18 are a pair of tough Par 4s that continuously force bogeys. Based on this it might be worth looking at players who ranks highly in Par 4 Birdies or Better.
My picks are as follows:
Scott Langley - 1pt ew @ 28/1 - Three top 10s in his last six appearances show a player in top form and couple this with a 3rd here last time out and 28/1 looks a solid price.
Adam Long - 0.5pts ew @ 80/1 - I tipped him here last year at 66/1 so I have to back him again at higher odds coming off the back of a 10th place finish last week and boasting a 2nd on this course back in 2015.
Peter Tomasulo - 0.25pts ew @ 225/1- Solid course form in that he has never missed a cut here and won back in 2012. He has recently seen a small return to form and could feature this week.
Total Staked - 3.5pts
