Bonus Model Targets – Valspar Championship

Did you take advantage of our huge week for the Players Championship? With Rory leading the charge to the winner’s circle, shares of Tommy, DJ, Sergio, Webb, Scott, Bradley CHII and Benny An, there was a clear path to success with the player recommendations. Outside of Paul Casey, the other ten players not only made the cut, but performed extremely well. By avoiding some of the chalk in the value range, we missed out on some significant land mines which gave us a massive edge. When Rory sealed the deal, it helped to put a final stamp of success on the week.

Going into this week, the tournament shifts to the Tampa area and the Valspar Championship at Copperhead. Normally, this event is a lot of fun and has a stronger field, but with the schedule taking a big shift, it is sandwiched in between the Players and the WGC Match Play next week which means that many big names are using this week to take a break before ramping up to get prepared for Augusta next month.

The course itself is one of the toughest that players will see all year. It is a medium length course at 7200-7300 yards with five Par 3 holes, long Par 4’s and the Par 5’s are not as easy to score on as we’ve seen in previous weeks. The fairways are very narrow and tree lined with water around all over the course. The rough is also on the long side and difficult to hit out of most of the time. When winds are up, this can be a real nightmare to get through which means that players that avoid mistakes are often the ones to focus on rather than the scorers who usually dominate.

Here’s who I’m looking at and avoiding for the Valspar Championship….
