Rose And Stenson Tipped To Prosper At The Jazzed Up Zurich Classic Of New Orleans

This week's PGA Tour event features a new two-man team format as the Zurich Classic of New Orleans 'jazzes' things up from Thursday and we have picked out three pairings who we expect to thrive at the TPC of Louisiana...

27th April - 30th April OddsWon/LostBet
Zurich Classic of New Orleans    
Tips Rose and Stenson to win    Best Bet @ 7 / 1  
Grace and Oosthuizen (each way) @ 16 / 1  
Stricker and Kelly (each way) @ 75 / 1  

The Format

The tournament involves eighty teams competing over four rounds, with the top-35 making the cut and going through to play the weekend.

The first and third rounds will involve alternate shots (foursomes), with the second and fourth rounds involving best ball (fourballs).

The Favourites

It is the marquee pairing of Jason Day and Rickie Fowler who head the betting at 6/1, with Fowler in particularly good touch on the PGA Tour of late. The American's course form leaves a touch to be desired as only a top-20 at TPC Louisiana in 2016 halted a run of successive missed cuts, although Day has fared better here having finished in the top-five in both 2015 and 2016.

Our preference is to back the Olympic one-two of Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson at 7/1 though as these two have proven to be a formidable pairing for Team Europe in recent Ryder Cups, winning four of six points on offer together.

Stenson may be in something of a funk form-wise ahead of his debut at TPC Louisiana but a reunion with his old mate should see The Open Champion right. Rose has been brilliant during a 2017 that saw him go so close to winning a second major title at the Masters and he has an impressive record at this course, winning the Zurich Classic in 2015 and securing four other top-fifteen finishes.
Tip #1: Rose and Stenson @ 7/1 with Bet 365.

The Best Of The Rest

Ryan Palmer and Jordan Spieth (11/1) would appear to be a nice blend of styles, while Bubba Watson and JB Holmes (14/1) should have no trouble with length!

The match-up between Daniel Berger and Thomas Pieters (14/1) will be interesting to watch as they are both powerful scorers, while the Japanese team of Hideki Matsuyama and Hideto Tanihara (28/1) should not be underestimated.

However, our second selection is the South African team of Branden Grace and Louis Oosthuizen, who won four points from four matches as a pairing during the 2015 Presidents Cup. Both players are in good form ahead of their debut at TPC Louisiana, with Oosthuizen going seventeen tournaments since he last missed a cut.
Tip #2: Grace and Oosthuizen (each way) @ 16/1 with B365.

The Outsiders

Finally, Steve Stricker and Jerry Kelly may be getting on in years but they are not to be underestimated as a pairing. We backed them each-way at the Templeton Shootout in December and they duly finished runners up in a tournament that they had previously won in 2009, and they are over-priced at 75/1 this week.

The duo tied 8th at the Bass Pro Shops Legends Of Golf event last week and both have impressive course form at TPC Louisiana, with Striker securing seven top-25 finishes in twelve visits and Kelly actually won the title here in 2009!
Tip #3: Stricker and Kelly (each way) @ 75/1 with Bet365.com.
