My strategy for this tournament is simple.

I backed the following players, tipped by Sporting Life's David John, and will look to DOB them in-play:

Jason Dufner (odds 70.00)
Justin Thomas (48.00)
Marc Leishman (50.00)
Paul Casey (38.00)
Mackenzie Hughes (500.00)

The tournament is not over, but this strategy proved successful already

Casey dobbed, +£1
Hughes dobbed, +£1
Thomas dobbed, +£1
Profit: +£3

Leisham no chance in hell, -£1
Dufner not even close, -£1
Loss: -£2

Total P/L: +£1

I've not really traded it much in past so took some data this year.

Me neither, just trading it "blindly".

Today the Final Round will take place, with the leaders teeing up mid afternoon, UK time.

The last two years, after the Third Round, there were two players leading. In both years the tournament was won by a third player who overtook them during Final Round.

This year we are in a similar situation, with two players leading (Thomas Pieters, Zach Johnson).

A strategy could be laying them both (odds of 4.40 and 4.70 right now) with a view to backing them in play at higher odds during Final Round (let's say 7.00).

Sounds like a good strategy I use something similar laying the top 2 going into back nine, there have been some spectacular swings 🏌️🏌️in the last few weeks

The above Final Round strategy worked like a charm.

Thomas Pieters layed 4.40 pre-round, backed 7.00 in-play.

Zach Johnson layed 4.70 pre-round, backed 7.00 in-play.
