Seeming as this is the 1st WGC event of the year, DownThe18th will be doing daily posts on the event with our review of each day as well as thoughts on the next days draw and potential betting opportunities! Please check out our preview and picks for this week in the post below.
As Match Play doesn’t come round too often in golf, it is only right for us to take advantage of the different betting markets this week! This means looking at each individual match on every day, accumulators of the matches, bracket betting and of course outright betting.
