2008 - Week 37 Predictions Now Online

We have published the predictions for week 37, the WGC - Bridgestone Invitational (both tours) and the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open (US). With the 6 time winner, Tiger Woods, being missing, the WGC event is wide open this year for the first time in its 10 year history. In the other event this week, the weaker Reno-Tahoe Open has gone for the "girly gimmick" to boost ticket sales and invited Michelle Wie to tee it up. She hasn't exactly covered herself with glory on the men's tour (or women's tour for that matter!) so let's hope she doesn't emulate that unfortunate amateur from last week's Russian Open! Unsurprisingly, she is rated joint lowest by Golf Predictor to produce the goods this week, although this is primarily because she has no relevant statistics to speak of.

Competitors who were winners of the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open before 2003 (when Golf Predictor records commence) include Notah Begay III (1999) and Chris Riley (2002). The only man on the corresponding list for the WGC - Bridgestone Invitational is Craig Parry (2002).
