Portugal Masters – betting tips 50

Tom Lewis won on only his third start as a professional, right here in Vilamoura for the Portugal Masters. Six years on it’s surprising to think that was his last victory but golf careers never follow a linear career trajectory. The good news for the Englishman is that he’s on the up again and at only 26 he’s still got plenty of time to fulfil his potential. Lewis’s stroke average this season is 70.96, the best of his career and over a full stroke better than last season. This is born out in the results with 13/17 cuts made and a recent T3 at the Czech Masters. Ranked 12th on […]

BMW Championship – betting tips 26

It’s hard to get enthused about the Playoffs from a betting perspective as the fields get  stronger and there are fewer places to play for each week. The top of the market is in the correct order and I expect them to fill most of the each-way places.

It’s too tight off the tee and putting on those funny greens negates his short game prowess. Links golf is where he made his name at the Open and that’s the type of test the Irishman needs.  I had been hoping to keep my powder dry until the Dunhill Links but the KLM Open tempted me in. The Dutch hosts the event for a second time and this inland links-style course plays to Dunne’s strengths. Last year […]

European Masters – betting tips 32

Picking young, upcoming talent has paid dividends in the past two weeks with ante-post victories for Julien Suri and Haydn Porteous so i’m sticking with the plan. Thomas Detry enjoyed an illustrious amateur career, he rose to inside the top-10 in the world rankings and enjoying a successful collegiate stint in the United States. He’s followed in the footsteps of compatriot Thomas Pieters and the hype isn’t misplaced. On turning professional 15 months ago, he made the cut on his first nine consecutive starts on the Challenge Tour, winning on the tenth occasion in the Bridgestone Challenge. A seriously talented young man and he’s made the step up in grade with […]
