Patrick Reed should get the better of Snedeker

Twoball tipping for round two

Patrick Reed will want to improve on his second round
1 of 1

Day two
Sky Sports Golf, 9pm Friday

The CareerBuilder Challenge can provide a tricky conundrum for twoball punters as consideration has to be given not only to how the professional will deal with three different courses but also their ability to disregard the antics of their amateur playing partners.

While it can be a buzz for any big-company chief executive, playing off a handicap of eight, to be afforded the chance to get inside the ropes, it can provide an unnecessary distraction to the players making a living.

The players have at least had one round at the California venues to get used to it, but there is a standout play in the 6.20pm clash between Patrick Reed and Brandt Snedeker.

Snedeker's presence in tournaments at the beginning of the year usually raises eyebrows as five of his US Tour victories have come in the first four months.

However, he has not had the same preparation for his strong time of the year this time as he was sidelined for most of the second half of 2017 with a chest injury.

The Nashville native is playing with the assistance of a new caddie, Matt Hauser and it makes sense to allow the new partnership time to gel, particularly as he is playing the current rotation of CareerBuilder courses for the first time after they were altered following the 2014 tournament.

He felt his way around the Nicklaus Course on Friday with an even-par 72, and there looks more scope for Reed to improve on his round after he carded a disappointing 74.

Reed won this tournament on the last occasion before the course changes and he was in some decent form before embarking on his first effort of the new year.

Reed was fifth at the Hero World Challenge in December and, although the field was small, it was his eighth top-20 finish in his last 12 outings.

The pair tackle the Stadium Course, the toughest of the three, and Reed can put his disappointing opening spin behind him.

Recommendation
P Reed to win twoball 6.20pm GMT
2pts 20-21 bet365
