Getting Rich Slowly- Valspar and Indian Open

Previous Week Recap

ANOTHER ONE!  Happy to report another week in the green for the GRS column.  George Coetzee was an easy winner again in South Africa as the EURO hot streak continues.  We had him paired up with Mickelson and were able to get the hedge in on JT once we entered the playoff.  Happy to capitalize on some positive variance this week since the hedging situation was tough heading into the last few holes on Sunday.  Great week in Mexico as we didn’t have any Daniel Berger-esque withdrawls and nobody was nipped by Montezuma. (though Ty Hatton made several references to feeling “uncomfortable” on Thursday evening).  The golf in South Africa wasn’t quite as spectacular but when you hit winners, you don’t complain!

This Week

As previously mentioned this stretch is some of my favorite golf that is played all season.  I was lucky enough to be on Site with Jason yesterday and got to see over 30 players including CASEY, RORY, SPIETH, CAM, KEEGAN and was able to gain some great insights into how guys are playing as well as the condition of the course.  Be sure to hit me up on twitter if you have any questions specific to the course.  A few guys really stood out to me in a positive way yesterday and you will find those people below in the matrix.  Get ready for next week as the tour comes (literally) to my backyard and I will have a HUGE write up on the course itself as well as the fantastic field that many expect.  Until next week- let’s keep building!

Getting Rich Slowly- WGC Mexico & Tshwane Open

Previous Week Recap

Didn’t get anything going last week as we had Eddie Pepperell (great twitter follow if you don’t already) push across the line for his first EURO win.  In fact, he wrote a great blog post about it which I highly recommend- very candid and transparent.  Something I aspire to in my writing.  The matrix did have the winner on TOUR last week with JT and TOMMY and NOREN in contention deep into Sunday as well.  Unfortunately, the first leg we hit was JT so didn’t provide us any hedging opportunities but feel good about where we are given that we are continually picking winners.

                        Previous week: $105             This week: $95

This Week

This week we have a wonderful field down in Mexico but have something left to be desired at Tshwane in South Africa.  I will be taking my bankroll down to the 5% area this week as there will be simply too much volatility in the EURO event.  Hopefully we can cash a winner in South Africa and have an opportunity for a ticket come back 9 on Sunday!

Getting Rich Slowly- Honda & Quatar Masters

Previous Week Recap

Yet another chance at a huge winner with a potential 1325/1 shot coming in if CANTLAY was able to finish the deal on Sunday afternoon.  Jason continues to put us in great situations hitting 2 of the last 3 EURO winners.  Big props to the Tour Level team and all the hard work they put into some of the best content in the industry.  Our time is fast approaching!

When you are playing for these types of tickets two things are of paramount importance if you want your bankroll to survive- patience and hedging.  We must understand that hitting doubles, especially in golf, is not a common occurrence.  Effectively by definition, things that happen on a fairly frequent basis wouldn’t be paying odds north of 500/1.  As a consequence, we must be diligent with our bankrolls and hedge wisely as the tournament makes the turn to Sunday to the back 9.  Remember that it only takes one double to hit for our bankroll to increase anywhere from 100-200%.  If we are effectively able to “tread water” until we do (and I know it will happen with as close as we’ve been getting) this will make the growth of our bankroll that much more exponential over time.

The primary reason that we wait for the back 9 is very simple- there are too many variables in a golf tournament.  I could make the case that at some point on the back 9 on Sunday, 10 people had a not so outside chance of winning the golf tournament.  Kevin Na (KEVIN NA!)  was in the lead for a few holes, BUBBA, the eventual champion, was 1 over on the front 9 and 2 shots back, peak FINAU showed up and even PHIL got it to within one late.  Good bounce here, made putt instead of missed there and we likely have somebody else holding the trophy.

I like to tune in when the coverage starts (after the gap!) which is really when the golf tournament starts to crystalize.  From that point, I am watching a few holes for body language, distance of putts made, ball striking etc.  From here, we can put together a potential pack of chasers- of course not inclusive of our horse, in this case CANTLAY.  In the event that it becomes a 2 horse race where it is evident that nobody else will win (think PHIL and STENSON in the 2017 OPEN championship), you simply wait for a good price and hedge out against your horse.  With multiple chasers it becomes part science and part art.  For example, despite NA leading the tournament for a few holes, I wasn’t going to be placing any money on him until it became EXTREMELY OBVIOUS that he would win the tournament.  When you have such large tickets on the one side you have significant equity such that laying a larger price for somebody who is going to win-BUBBA this week- is ok.  You are better off paying a higher price late than trying to lay off too soon.  Using this strategy we were able to squeak out a small profit despite making nearly 170 wagers last week in the matrix.

As always, follow along on twitter for live hedging updates and if you have any questions about how/why/when please don’t hesitate to ask me.  On to this week and my favorite time of year- THE FLORIDA SWING

                        Previous week: $102             This week: $105

This Week

As mentioned, this begins my favorite non-major month of the golf calendar culminating with the tournament in my backyard, the Arnold Palmer Invitational.  I will be quite excited next year when THE PLAYERS is added to this portion of the calendar.  The weather here is truly too hot in May and March will suit that tournament very well.  On top of the addition of many of the global players to the TOUR this time of year, many of the big names play several tournaments in Florida since it is so close to home.

More global players on TOUR means less powerful fields, co-sanctioned events and smaller purses on the EURO tour.  The last real winter stop in the desert is this week for the Quatar Masters in Doha.  This means more action for you night Owls!
