Last week I picked Kevin Na. T24, not bad but no cash. This week I got one I REALLY like, Rich Beem. T3 last year at Disney and a similar pattern to Matteson. 2 weeks ago Beem finished T43 then last week T11. He should be at least 100-1.

Funny you should mention that because his name crossed my mind today too. He is indeed at 100 with the bookies, but you can bag him for at least 180 in the exchanges. The problem with Na last week was he never went below his opening price of 80/120

I've been following Beem's career since I read the book Bud, Sweat, and Tees which is about Rich Beem. I believe Beem is a truly great player that normally doesn't really give a $hit. The brief history : he was a real nobody that decided to go to q-school in 1998 but made it through all 3 stages finishing 8th, no mean feat. Then in his 12th start, after missing 5 cuts in a row, won the Kemper Open. The BIG party then commenced and lasted for the next couple of years when he realized he was broke again. So in 2001 he sobered up and played well enough to keep his card for 2002. That year he started playing well with a 4th and a 2nd before winning the International which got him into the PGA the next week which he won beating Tiger Woods down the stretch. After that he was rich ( no pun intended ) again and has done little the last 5 years. 2007 is his last exempt year from the PGA so I expect soon he will start playing well and next year will be big.

One other thing, sportingbet.com ( which cancelled my account ) is quoting 125-1 which I promise you is just plain crazy. 50-1 is about right.

You gotta love Charley Hoffman, looks like a real party boy and from what I've heard is. His pro career starting in 2000 was a real nightmare but a couple of years ago everything changed. And what made it happen was Butch Harmon. He apparently is a real genius at teaching golf. If you look at his web-site every one of his players has improved markedly and Charley is having one hellava year.
