Golf Betting Tips – British Masters
This week we have golf betting tips for the British Masters. A decent field headed by tournament host Luke Donald has assembled for the event which takes place this year at The Grove, Chandlers Cross, Hertfordshire. The Kyle Phillips designed layout was opened in 2003, and has only been used to host one previous event, the 2006 WGC American Express Championship. The Par 71 7,151yd track is a partially tree lined track, with quite generous fairways and large undulating greens very much in keeping with the course designers style. Greens are reported to be in good nick for the tournament running to around 12 on the stimpmeter.
With basically no course form for the vast majority of the field, this is a tough heat to try and fathom out for punting purposes. Tiger Woods ran away with the WGC event in 2006 with an amazing winning score of 23 under, but with names like Poulter, Furyk and Donald also on the leader board, there is every chance the tidy players could also be competitive this week. Cool dry conditions with light winds of around 10mph are forecast for the four days, which is good news for the expected large crowds including this golf pundit!
The column produced another successful tip last week, with each-way returns on our 18-1 Bernd Wiesberger selection.
British Masters Betting Tips
Alex Noren 18/1 E/W Coral
Our first golf tip this week is the in form Alex Noren, who won the 2015 Nordea Masters on the Kyle Phillips designed PGA Swedish National. The ever smiling Swede has already posted two victories this season, with wins in the Scottish Open and the Omega European Masters, and he is fancied to contend again this week. He arrives here off the back of a Tied 11th place finish in the Dunhill Links, where he led the field after day one with a blistering 64 at the difficult Carnoustie. Although he had a frustrating weekend on the hallowed St. Andrews turf, he still showed more than enough to suggest that he could win again this season in this class of field.
Soren Kjeldsen. 28/1 E/W Paddy Power 6 places (1/5 the odds)
Another player I expect to go well this week is Soren Kjeldsen. The likeable Dane has had another really solid year after his great comeback win in the 2015 Irish Open, with six top 10 finishes including the Open Championship and the Masters. He played some really solid golf last week in the Dunhill Links (Tied 7th), and this neat and tidy player could well be suited to this type of test.
David Horsey 66-1 E/W Stan James
The final selection this week is the rejuvenated David Horsey, who has found a rich vein of form in recent events. After a slow injury plagued start to the year, the Cheshire golfer has really got his act together with a Tied 4th in Holland, a Tied 5th in Italy and a Tied 11th in the Dunhill Links last week. He is another solid ball striker with a good touch on the greens, and he looks the standout each-way value in this field.
