Hero World Challenge First Round Leader Rickie Fowler each way

Golf - Hero World Challenge - 30 Nov 16:10

I'm keen on Rickie Fowler this week for obvious reasons. I just feel he's a better bet in this market given his win conversion rate is still disappointing.

Since his last win on tour at the Honda Classic, Fowler has twice been the First Round Leader. He shot a 64 in the 1st Round in Houston and a 65 in the US Open. He led outright on his own in both those tournaments.

Fowler arrives in top form having finished as runner up in 2 of his last 3 events. Once again he played some superb golf in Mayakoba but failed to get the W, losing to Kizzire by a shot. Fowler opened that event with a 65 and was T3 after Round 1.


Last season on the PGA Tour Fowler had a 1st Round scoring average of 69.2, 4th best on tour. The only player in this field to better than was Spieth at 69.00.

Thomas (69.83) and DJ (69.89) were the only other 2 players in this event to average under 70 in the 1st Round of PGA Tour events last season, which makes Fowler's stat even more impressive.

Fowler is deceptively long and averaged over 300 yards from the tee. He also ranked 4th in Birdie Average last season, 2 important stats when betting on this market.

Fowler has played great here at Albany since the tournament switched to the Bahamas. Fowler finished 3rd both years and his combined total of -34 is the best in the field. Spieth the closest rival at -31.

So as you can see there is a lot to like about Fowler's chances this week and 11/1 looks a solid bet. No interest in going EW at these odds so it's a win only bet.
