Lang’s Locks: Past champion on radar as PGA Tour hits Colonial

By ROY LANG III, Journal Sports

The PGA Championship bets were pretty much a wash last week, but the winning streak ended as we got dinged dabbling in the NHL and MLB.

The PGA Tour makes it second stop in the Metroplex this month with a visit to Colonial Country Club. Former champion Chris Kirk, coming off a T5 at the PGA, looks juicy at 49-1. We have a win ticket on HVIII as well. As usual, we hit the European Tour and the Dutch Open.

And let’s take a meaty NHL underdog in a desperate position. 

Good luck!

Notes

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.

Best line (as of Tuesday) is listed in parenthesis. Find the best price, one key to being a successful sports bettor!
