mcgladrey classic (us pga tour)

the fall series continues this week with the McGLADREY CLASSIC in georgia - a par 70 course at 7000 or so yards which isn't the toughest but you have to stick it in the right place so it should suit the shorter neater players and this is where most of the focus is this week

plenty of tour pros live here so will be a local event for a few of them - usually makes them perform a shot or two better with local knowledge and some good fan backing

quite a few playing for their cards obviously and I like some of the recent efforts of a few players where they have sneaked into the top 10 or shot a really low one


adam HADWIN > young canadian has featured in the top 10 recently a couple of times and looks a useful player - likewise, compatriot McQUILLAN has been in the top 10 a couple of times in recent events too so worth a look

McKENZIE & BERTSCH both showed some form last week and both need to move up the rankings a bit to get their cards sorted so can expect them to be worth a back to lay perhaps

bud CAULEY looks to be a very good prospect too and he's another worth checking although odds already look a bit too low (shows the regard people have for him however)

regarding potential winners, CASEY warmed up well last wk which was on the back of a win in Asia so he may be a decent bet here, 38 is enough for me (betfair); there's a few who fit the bill and have ties locally in some way so SNEDEKER and ZACH J look likely to feature so will back both of those...

Sneds can be a pain as usually plays poorly when I back him so let's break that run.. 28 betfair; as for Zach, it would be amiss not to go for the local resident who usually manages to find a win at some point when playing consistently well.. hasn't got one yet this yr on main tour so this could be good timing -12th here last yr and not bad value at 27 betfair

C HOWELL and ALLENBY will presumably play fairly well also and might be worth a few dollars but perhaps KIRK at 65 is better value than Howell.. also looking at Hunter HAAS at 140 and HADWIN at 180 as decent shouts

might dabble on some of these if they look in good nick.. will probably start with Casey, Johnson, Sneds, Haas and Hadwin and keep an eye on Allenby, Kirk and co

trading > will go with Mackenzie at 260, Bertsch at 250, Stankowski has shown a bit recently and 450 isn't bad - looking to lay these guys if they go well initially
