Continuing our stint in New Zealand and we have come to a course that a lot of players haven’t seen before for the 2019 SEC NZ PGA Championship. Will this even the playing field? Unlikely, but regardless your Tour Insider is excited to find out. Here are this week’s picks.
Harry played very well while being in the thick of it at the NZ Open and is showing good signs that his game is heading back to where it needs to be. TI rates him as a chance if he can keep that form going.
I went for the big (not as big as he once was) guy in Toowoomba and with another generous course off the tee I think his power game can make some huge gains here... unlike his arms. He impressed in Toowoomba and could be a big chance in NZ.
I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that Gareth has had a fresh batch of India's finest tea delivered and with that means a spike in performance. Not overly long off the tee but he has a quality all-round game that should have him in contention at Pegasus.
Bit of a speculation tip here. Jordan hasn’t quite fired in 2019 but as a multiple winner on the ISPS HANDA Tour of Australasia he is way above his odds. He definitely has the class to win these events and win them easy.
I thought Brad was going to pinch it late last week and accordingly he deserves to be on TI’s list this week. The Queenslander is so hot right now that even Zoolander couldn't touch him. If he isn't in contention I will be shocked!
