He did it again! I know Justin Thomas won THE PLAYERS

Championship – that was pretty cool (and profitable outside of this

column) considering he was 7 back going into Saturday.

But I’m talking about our friend, The Parlay Kid.

If you read this column fairly often and like to put a few bucks on

the line for each PGA tournament, please tell me how you

AREN’T following his betting advice.

If you played each one of his picks over the past 9 weeks, you’d

be up a whopping 235%! Now I’m not doing too shabby…I’m up

over $1000 thus far but my success pales in comparison to the

man who has become an elite golf predictor in 2021.

A weaker than usual field takes on ‘The Bear Trap’ at The Honda

Classic. It’s not a long course but water lurks seemingly

everywhere and if the wind blows (as it’s scheduled to rather

heavily), scores will be much closer to par than 10 under.

With a lack of star players in the field, will we see some less than

household names as win predictions from our experts?

Once again the rules: each picker will get a simulated $200 to bet;

$100 of which will be on win bets and another $100 on top-5, top-

10, and top-20 bets only. The kicker this time is that the money

can only be spent on a maximum of three golfers in each

category. Picking winners has never been so difficult.

Here are this week’s plays for The Honda Classic:
