A double dose of the PGA Tour this week, with another brand new tournament taking place in Bermuda, at the Port Royal Golf Course, aptly named the Bermuda Championship. At only 6,800 yards it’s one of the shortest courses on the tour this season, so you’d imagine it will be a flurry of birdies and eagles. With the WGC HSBC Champions taking place, it will be another opportunity for a relative unknown to secure their tour card.
Kyoung-Hoon Lee – Stake 0.60% (0.30% each-way) or £30 (£15 each-way)
Putting it bluntly, the field for this event is pretty terrible, and given that KH Lee has been playing fairly regularly on the PGA Tour (albeit without much success) should give him a boost. Stats wise he sits around 80th in most major categories, but with the majority of the guys ahead of him not in the field he should be one of the better ball strikers in Bermuda, making odds over 60/1 very generous. Lee also has some victories to his name on the Japanese and Asian Tours.

Robert Garrigus – Stake 0.20% (0.10% each-way) or £10 (£5 each-way)
It’s very rare that I take a flyer on a selection, but I can’t help but think despite his struggles, Garrigus is over-priced at 250/1. He is one of the few guys in this event with a PGA Tour victory, and with his length off the tee, he should be leaving himself some short irons into the greens.
