AT&T Pebble Beach Tips: Six places paid for each way betting!

Tim Clark is looking back to the form he showed before serious injury threatened to ruin his career

"Clark has some excellent form at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am over the years and is a solid each way selection this week."

Betfair are paying a quarter the odds for the first six places on fixed odds each way bets at the AT&T Pebble Beach this week, so we asked the betting.betfair golf contributors to put up a selection...

Joe Dyer - Back Robert Garrigus @ 26.025/1

Form, form and more form - that's the mantra this week where our pick is a man in (yep you guessed it) great form. Robert Garrigus has gone off like a racehorse on the PGA Tour, finishing 16th, sixth and 11th in three starts this year. The concern is whether he can get his nose in front and keep it there - this is a man who finished second on four occasions last year after all - but that would still be good for a place money payout of course. Shrewd judges consider a good performance at Torrey Pines significant given similarities between that course and those used for the AT&T so Garrigus' sixth at the Farmers Insurance Open two weeks ago has to be viewed as a huge positive.


Steve Rawlings - Back Jack Kokrak @ 201.0n/a

Jason Kokrak put up a bold bid for me when backed at a big price three weeks ago at the Humana Challenge, another Californian Pro-Am, when he finished tied 8th, and his top-ten finish here last year was also very encouraging. Having missed the cut in Phoenix last week, after withdrawing from the Farmers Insurance Open with a strained back the week before, he's a monster price again here but I'm happy to take a chance on him. And the fact that Paul Krishnamurty makes him one of his Find Me a 100 Winner picks is also a big plus.


Mike Norman - Back Aaron Baddeley @ 46.045/1

Young - is he still young? - Aaron Baddeley, probably even more so than his compatriot Adam Scott, is someone who you can't help but feel should win more golf tournaments. He can be brilliant on his day, but we see very few of those days from this talented Aussie. Having said that, a tie for sixth at Torrey Pines a few weeks ago was a very encouraging effort for a player who has finished in the top six on his last two visits to this week's venue - Pebble Beach. Throw in Baddeley's ability to be a good wind player should the weather take a turn for the worse and you have a solid each way candidate on your hands.


Paul Krishnamurty - Back Jimmy Walker @ 41.0n/a

Jimmy Walker´s recent record screams ´first-time winner-in-waiting´ so he must rate a solid each-way pick back in his favourite state. Walker hasn´t missed a cut since last July and fourth place on his penultimate start at Torrey Pines represented his seventh top-10 from his last nine events in California. Two of those came in the last two Pebble Beach Pro-Am renewals, so we know he won´t be fazed by pro-am conditions.


Dan Geraghty - Back Tim Clark @ 36.035/1

Tim Clark's career was interrupted by serious injury shortly after he finally broke his duck on the PGA Tour in 2010. However, the wee South African looks to be getting back to the sort of form that saw him top the PGA Tour's proximity to the hole stat in both 2009 and 2010 (Clark was also third in 2008); and was unlucky to come up against an inspired Russell Henley in his first start of this PGA tour season. Clark has some excellent form at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am over the years and is a solid each way selection this week.
