RBC Canadian Open: Each-way bets for the PGA Tour action at Glen Abbey

Super scrambler Chris Kirk is Paul Krishnamurty's selection

It's not quite Muirfield but we're expecting another firm and fast test of golf as the PGA Tour goes to Canada this week - can our crew of golf writers find an each-way winner? Here are their selections...

"Glen Abbey's small greens always place a big emphasis on scrambling, and will do so even more so this year due to the dry conditions, so I'm backing the leader in the PGA Tour scrambling stats at 50/1."

Joe Dyer - Back Cameron Tringale @ 101.0100/1
This has been a solid yet unspectacular PGA Tour season for Cameron Tringale, but having made five of his last six cuts he's due a decent showing and his tidy game could make this the week. Tringale ranks 10th for greens in regulation and 53rd for driving accuracy. Our own Paul Krishnamurty tells us that Glen Abbey is playing firm and fast so we want a quality ball striker who can place the ball where he wants it. Tringale has not played a Canadian Open at Glen Abbey but he has finished in the top 20 at this tournament in 2012 and 2011 so we know he enjoys playing his golf in Canada at this time of year. 


Steven Rawlings - Back Patrick Reed @ 101.0100/1
In an event where the market leaders could all be suffering with fatigue, following a gruelling Open Championship at Muirfield, it makes perfect sense to look further down the list in search of value and my eyes are drawn to the in-form and fast-improving Patrick Reed. Reed, who only turned pro in 2011, came to my attention last year when repeatedly Monday-qualifying for PGA Tour events (six times!). He earned his card this year via the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament and after a very solid first season, he's currently ranked 86th in the FedEx Cup standings. The next step-up for Patrick and his diminutive caddy wife Justine is a win and in an event where the big-names could be weary, he looks worthy of a small investment.


Mike Norman - Back Morgan Hoffmann @ 67.066/1
America is becoming besieged by Hoffs, the latest being 23-year-old Morgan Hoffmann who is finally starting to realise the potential promised by his seven top-10 finishes on the Web.com Tour last season. Young Hoff recorded a second place finish on that same tour early this season, but struggled to find his feet on the main tour, missing six cuts from his first nine starts. A top-five finish at the Byron Nelson seemed to kick-start his season, and his last four appearances read 9, 8, 23, 15, so he's in hot form right now. This isn't a strong field by any means, so expect the latest Hoff to ge well again in Canada.


Paul Krishnamurty - Back Chris Kirk @ 51.050/1
Glen Abbey's small greens always place a big emphasis on scrambling, and will do so even more so this year due to the dry conditions, so I'm backing the leader in the PGA Tour scrambling stats at 50/1. Chris Kirk is in good form, finishing ninth last weekend for a second straight top-25, and also finished fourth in this event 12 months ago."


Dan Geraghty - Back Robert Garrigus @ 81.080/1
Robert Garrigus started the season in fine form but since a missed cut at the Players Championship in May has put together a terrible run that reads: cut/cut/WD/cut/64/cut. That last missed cut was at the Open Championship (despite making this monster putt), where he's never made the weekend anyway and the American will be much more at home at a tournament he finished second in last year before (though not at this venue) finishing the season as strongly as he started it. 81.080/1 looks a big EW price.
