I’m heavily into Jeff Overton this week and I’ve included him within my main tips for the first time in 2011 for all the right reasons. A form line of 26-33-69-44(Masters debut) is progressive and Overton also finished 6th behind Sabbatini (a previous Colonial winner) at the windswept Honda Classic back in March which is worthy of note, when we are expecting wind to be a factor this week.
It’s 100% crystal though that Overton is both a Par 70 and Bent green specialist. 13th here on debut was followed last year by a 3rd place finish. His CV also contains 2nd place finishes at TPC Four Seasons, The Old White Course and Sedgefield + a 3rd at Aronimink. I’m sure you’ll have noticed these are all Par 70 tracks with Bent greens. He’s a little obvious this week but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Overton in the mix again this week. Result: T65, -23 Points
