CIMB Classic – betting tips 36

With the new PGA Tour season barely up and running there is an immediate change in tack. The CIMB Classic is a limited field event played at Kuala Lumper G&CC since 2013. That means no tour rookies to get excited about and no cut either. Ryan Moore is a two-time winner of this event whilst Gary Woodland and Kevin Na have twice recorded top-3s finishes. The bookmakers are wise to this and all three are priced accordingly but the market has missed the common thread of strokes gained with approaches to the green.

The rookies in particularly look a strong batch this season and during the early weeks this is where the value lies. Last year Emiliano Grillo, Smylie Kaufman and Peter Malnati came up from the Tour […]


British Masters – betting tips 45

The British Masters continues its renaissance with a lap around some of England’s most famous courses, The Grove taking over duties from Woburn. The Hertfordshire course is famous for hosting the 2006 WGC-American Express Championship won by Tiger Woods but beyond that there is precious little course form to ponder. Last year the British Masters provided Matthew Fitzpatrick with his breakthrough win and the profile of the event, coupled with home support could propel another Englishman to victory. Tommy Fleetwood already has a European Tour win under his belt but that was in 2013 and you get the impression his is overdue another one. The betting public thought that would come […]
