SUNDAY TWO BALL
MARK WILSON- CHARLEY HOFFMAN
Wilson is pretty much a journeyman golfer, who would probably have spent a career backwards and forwards between the USPGA and Nationwide tours, before he learned to love his game and stopped trying to change what was not really wrong. This all came about when he consulted a leading sports psychologist in 2006, since when, he has won twice and earned some $6m + . In 2009 he has already won in Cancun and given himself a chance of victory in the very prestigeous Memorial Tournament. At 34 yo the diminutive Wilson is never going to be a superstar, but he is now a proven winner on tour and with that comes a lot of confidence.
He is earning a paycheck almost everytime he tees up and is performing very strongly at the business end of tournaments. Wilson is ranked 15th for 4th round scoring on tour this year, that is 109 places ahead of Hoffman, whom Pinnacle sports have paired him with today. That equates to virtually two strokes per round less a MASSIVE difference, last year it was a similar story with the two ranked 35th and 103rd respectively. Hoffman is talented, but far too often seems more concerned with hitting the ball as far as possible, rather than getting it into the cup.
Wilson is putting really well this week, ranked number one in that category and if he can hit a few more greens in regulation, he should win this match up in a canter and he really should be a decent favourite to do so, at "pick-em" he looks a solid bet.
6.5 points Wilson to beat Hoffman 1.95 Pinnacle Sports.
