BROOKS KOEPKA gave it a go in the Dunhill at the weekend to finish T2 and give me another place – in fact I’ve had 13 seconds this year which must be some sort of record.

He was 13 under for his two rounds at St Andrews including a 64 on the Saturday and has now gone 12 rounds this year on Scottish links courses and not once been over par. I’d like to mention The Open is at Troon in 2016! Need I say more.

Although I’m not complaining on a selection finishing second it would be great to have another couple of winners before the end of the season. So here’s hoping this weekend will be a good one.

The British Masters rolls up to Woburn and with all the trees driving accuracy is going to be a prerequisite for picks. Matthew Fitzpatrick, 36th in the Race To Dubai rankings, is still waiting for his maiden win on Tour but has enjoyed five top-fives this season so must be close to hitting the jackpot soon.

He is ninth in driving accuracy with 70.7% and 6th in GIR with 75.7%, one of only two players in the top 10 in both rankings. He has finished in the top three four times from his last 11 starts. One to watch.

Another Englishman with a great chance this week is 27-year-old Chris Wood (26 in R2D). After a wrist injury in March he came back to finish fourth in the BMW PGA at Wentworth in May, winning a BMW car for a hole in one in the process.

Since winning the Lyoness Open he’s had a torrid time, missing five cuts, but a T4 at the weekend in St Andrews hopefully signals a return to form. His driving accuracy is 64.2% and GIR 67.2% which is backed up by a solid 28.98 putts per round stat.

Shane Lowry has had a good year playing quite a few tournaments in America. He won the WGC-Bridgestone in August and came back to the European Tour for the Dunhill where he is sixth in the R2D. I tipped him last week but a 74 in the first round put the pressure on. The next three rounds were all in the sixties but it wasn’t enough. His driving accuracy is 63% and GIR 70.1 so if he plays to form the favourites will be up there at the end.

Winning the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open was Soren Kjeldsen’s first win on the Tour for six years. He has gone on to have four top-10s since that win at the end of May and has climbed to 13th in the Road to Dubai. His driving accuracy is around 66% and GIR of nearly 70% with putts per round of 29.5. Would be surprised if he doesn’t give a good showing here.

    Afternoon Ace…not had a proper look but agree with Chris Wood as a selection.

    SL tipping Jiminez who I fancy and also Pepperell.

  2. Eddie 3 years ago

    A golfer I’ve been watching this season is Kiradech Aphibarnrat. The Thai has done quite well on the Asian tour and won the Paul Lawrie match play
    He was tied 4th at the Dunhill
    Links golf doesn’t seem to trouble him.
    Could be one to watch for next year
    He’s 45/1 for the British masters
    Could be a decent each way bet

  3. Craig 3 years ago

    Not gonna bother busting the stats out….
    Matty Fitz 28/1 although his putting is not great
    and sticking With Thomas Pieters 50/1 both at skybet anyone who has 2 wins this year on tour has to be worth sticking with.

  4. Ace Venturer 3 years ago

    Morning HullShaker like the look of Wood but Fitzpatrick also looks good if, as Craig mentions, he can get his putter going.

  5. Ace Venturer 3 years ago

    Good choice MrF.

    Hi just a question from a golf betting newbie. If I bet on someone being first round leader and they tie for first is it paid out in full? Thanks in advance

      magshound, you wouldn’t get the full amount. For example if 3 players were tied you’d be paid a third of the total amount

  11. Magshound 3 years ago

    Cheers bud have karlsonn so looks like a possible 5 way split

  12. Craig 3 years ago

    Get in Matty Fitz and that red hot putter 😉 £5 @ 35/1 1st Round leader.

  13. malkster 3 years ago

    Makes a change..fitzy..overrated in my opinion

  14. Craig 3 years ago

    Cheers Mr F…..if the boy could putt he would become world class Malk…just needs to win one of these and he will push on.

  15. HullShaker 3 years ago

    Ah, well done there Craig…probably the only comp I’ve not backed a 1st round leader all year but to be fair Fitz hadn’t entered my thinking before your/Ace’s/Mr F’s suggestions came on.

    Great stuff again – pound for pound I would imagine the tips on this thread are right up there on conversion rates if not above all others to a level stake?

      HullShaker, his consistency is amazing even if it has been mostly seconds this season. I think he had 7 winners out of 8 at one point last year.

  16. malkster 3 years ago

    Time will tell craig..well done on 1st rnd leadr..bud

  17. Ian 3 years ago
