Now back in Northern Ireland he turns niche stats into predictions for FST, while he's one of the few people on this island who is equally comfortable at Windsor Park and the Aviva.
Last week’s US Open went almost to the wire and this week’s Travelers Championship could be another gripping contest on the PGA Tour.
Jon Rahm claimed the prize at Torrey Pines, but former champion Bryson DeChambeau will be looking to bounce back after he fell off the pace with a closing 77 at the San Diego track.
He is 12/1 to bounce back at a course where he has finished in the top ten in his last three appearances and heads the market alongside defending champion Dustin Johnson, who beat Kevin Streelman by a shot last year.
Paul Casey, for has four top-ten finishes at TPC River Highlands and is 16/1 after claiming seventh spot last week, leads the British charge.
Ian Wilkerson is on hand to guide you through the tournament as well as the European Tour action at the BMW International Open.

Travelers Championship winner prediction: Patrick Reed at 22/1
This looks like a competitive tournament and former Masters champion Patrick Reed should ensure he is in the thick of the action.
The Texan has put together some decent form of late and he will have been boosted by the closing 67 at Torrey Pines that ensured he claimed a 19th-placed finish.
This fine tee-to-green player should be able to take River Highlands and perform to the same standard as he did in a similar test when he finished fifth at the Memorial Tournament in Muirfield Village a couple of weeks ago.
Reed last claimed a tournament victory when he won the Farmers Insurance Open, also at Torrey Pines, by five shots in January but there have been other good pieces of form in recent outings as he finished sixth at the Wells Fargo Championship and was eighth at The Masters.
Another reason to be confident is that he was fifth at this venue in 2017 so the confident competitor from San Antonio ticks plenty of boxes this week and could make a bold bid.
Travelers Championship outsider prediction: Keegan Bradley at 50/1
Former US PGA champion Keegan Bradley did not play at the US Open last week and he will have probably spent a few hours mulling over how he missed the cut at the Memorial Tournament in his previous outing.
An opening 78 put paid to his hopes in that Ohio test, but a second round of 72 was not disastrous and he played well before that showing.
He was second at the Valspar Championship and finished 18th at both the Wells Fargo Championship and the US PGA.
He is ranked ninth in strokes-gained tee-to-green on the PGA Tour and can go one better than the second place he claimed at River Highlands behind Chez Reavie two years ago.
