Greenbrier Classic Tips: Each-way selections for this week's PGA Tour event

Has Charlie Wi hit form at just the right time?

Phil Mickelson is the star attraction at this week's Greenbrier Classic but his 'tournament favourite tag' means he doesn't make it on to the list of each-way selections from the betting.betfair golf team...

"Last year’s Greenbrier saw Wi finish third and he is under par in each of his eight rounds at Old White TPC. Seventh at the AT&T last time out suggests this good putter has hit form at the right time."

Joe Dyer says: Back Charlie Wi @ 91.090/1

It's not often that I would put up a player who has never won a PGA Tour event as my each-way selection but with few trends to go on at the Greenbrier Classic that is what I will be doing. Charlie Wi is the non-winner in question; the Korean having played 201 tournaments with five second-places representing his best finishes on Tour. Last year's Greenbrier saw Wi finish third and he is under par in each of his eight rounds at Old White TPC. Seventh at the AT&T last time out suggests this good putter has hit form at the right time.

Steve Rawlings says: Back Jason Kokrak @ 81.080/1

At getting on for 7,300 yards, the Old White TPC Course, home of the Greenbrier Classic, is long for a par 70, so it's no surprise to see that a number of big-hitters have fared well there. It's also a venue that seems to suit PGA Tour maidens with the last two renewals going to first-timers and the first six home twelve months ago without a win. Jason Kokrak is a big-hitting maiden of some repute and his third last week, where he ranked 4th for driving distance, 1st for scrambling and 12th for putting was extremely eye-catching and if he can repeat that sort of form here, he's sure to be in the shake-up.

Dan Geraghty says: Back Luke Guthrie @ 126.0125/1

Luke Guthrie started the season with perhaps the biggest reputation of last season's graduates; however the young American has found himself overshadowed by compatriot Russell Henley who has already tasted PGA Tour victory. Nevertheless Guthrie has had a solid first season on tour and sits 62nd on the money list. Last week's 21st at Congressional reads well, particularly his under par rounds on Saturday and Sunday. The Greenbrier Classic has been good to rookies in its short history and the 126.0125/1 about Guthrie winning appeals.

Paul Krishnamurty says: Back Kyle Stanley @ 56.055/1

With power off the tee a significant asset on this week's layout, Kyle Stanley can build on some promising efforts to land his second PGA Tour title. Though struggling for consistency, this 55/1 chance has twice rewarded each-way backers recently, finishing third in the Memorial and Zurich Classic. Stanley also produced an eyecatching performance on his sole previous visit to the Old White Course, shooting three rounds of 66 or better to finish ninth, but ruining his chance with a poor second day.

Mike Norman says: Back Gary Woodland @ 51.050/1

Huge things were expected from Gary Woodland when he burst on to the scene inn 2011. It's fair to say that his career hasn't quite panned out as many expected just yet, but he's still young and he looks to be putting a poor 2012 well and truly behind him. This venue suits long hitters, so Woodland ticks that box, and three top-20 finishes from his last four starts hint that the American is ready to claim his second PGA Tour victory. A T4 at this venue two years ago also encourages his followers; a repeat performance of course will land us the each-way money at least.
