Golf tips: Best bets for the 2019 Arnold Palmer Invitational

Having landed two winners and a 50/1 place in the past four weeks, Jack Green is back with his golf tips for this week's PGA Tour event in Florida.

Back to win: Bryson DeChambeau

DeChambeau has established himself as one of the most prolific winners on the PGA and European Tours, with four wins in his last 11 starts.

The 25-year-old won’t be overawed against this week’s strong field, having already triumphed in two super-competitive FedEx Cup events in the past seven months.

DeChambeau has impressed in both of his Arnold Palmer Invitational starts to date, finishing T27 on debut in 2016 and second behind Rory McIlroy last year.

The American disappointed with a T56 a fortnight ago, but can be trusted to bounce back given how great he’s been since Autumn of last year.

Each-way shout: Marc Leishman

Leishman won this event two years ago, and his current form suggests he could become the eighth player in history to win it multiple times.

The Australian has five top-five finishes in his last eight starts, including a win at the CIMB Classic in October.

Leishman’s known for being a wind specialist, and, although the forecast isn’t too bad in Florida this week, the breeze usually plays a factor at Bay Hill.

He’s finished T17-1-T7 in his last three Arnold Palmer starts, and also earned a T3 in 2011.

Outside shot: Luke List

Bay Hill is known as a bomber’s paradise, which bodes well for the big-hitting List.

The 34-year-old ranks fifth on the PGA Tour in driving distance this year and fourth in shots gained off the tee.

It makes sense, then, that List has performed well in both of his previous starts at this event, finishing T17 on debut in 2017 and T7 last year.

The American has been inconsistent recently, but is worth a bet at a big price given that he has two T4s and a T15 in his last eight starts.

The Money List winners 2019:

Dubai Desert Classic – Matt Wallace – 33/1 PLACED

Pebble Beach Pro-Am – Phil Mickelson – 22/1 WON

WGC – Mexico Championship – Dustin Johnson – 10/1 WON

Honda Classic – Lucas Glover – 50/1 PLACED
