Lang’s Locks: Players up next as we aim to match last week’s big profit

By ROY LANG III, Journal Sports

You probably laughed when you saw a bunch of picks for the “Magical Kenya Open.” Well, we scored big at that European Tour event and posted a whopping 7.75-unit profit with last week’s picks.

The Players Championship takes center stage in the golf world, but there is still money to be made on the Euro Tour this week. This week, it’s the MyGolfLife Open. If you haven’t read this column before, my main strategy is to kill it with Top 20 bets. They offer the best value on the boards.

Good luck this week!


All bets are measured in units. For instance, if your normal bet on a game is $100, that is one unit. If the bet is listed as .2 units, it’s a $20 bet.

Book with the best line (as of Tuesday) is listed in parenthesis. Find the best price. Crucial ingredient to being a successful sports bettor is shopping around!
