Favourite Watch

Sergio Garcia tops the betting at 8/1 but Henrik Stenson there at 10/1 also looks value if you’re in the win only market.  The Swede withdrew from the US Open when 10 over after 16 holes of his second round, choosing not to return after a rain delay.  That might have been a clever decision and spared him for a tilt this week.  Coming off a T4 at the Nordea Masters before Oakmont where he topped driving accuracy and was second in the GIR stats. Solo second here in 2015 and never out of the top 10 in last five visits.

Doc’s Top Five Players To Watch 

Ross Fisher 33/1

A T6 at Valderrama suggested good things this Summer for Ross but it didn’t happen at the K Club or Wentworth. A solid solo 6th at The Nordea got things back on track though and Ross finished in the top-20 of all the major performance stats.  T11 or better in four of his last six visits to Germany including a best of solo second in 2010.

Tyrrell Hatton  33/1

Five consecutive top-20’s make Tyrrell one of the most in form players on the European Tour.  Very impressive ball striking performances at the BMW PGA (T7) and Irish Open (T5) suggest he’ll do better at Gut Larchenoff this time than his two previous starts here (T22, T47).

Nico Colsaerts 40/1

In form since a T3 in Mauritius and solid in Ireland and Wentworth before a solo third last time out at the Nordea.  Rested since and due a huge performance if he can hole some putts.  Nobody is hitting more greens in regulation than Nico at the moment; just needs one week where the flatstick behaves. Just one week!

Rikard Karlberg 35/1

Missed the cut  at -2 here on his debut last year but arrives this time around on a super run ever since Shenzhen really.  A solo second in Wentworth was hugely impressive to watch and will have given him much confidence. T20 last time out at home in Sweden.

Pablo Larrazabal 60/1

Missed the cut in Sweden but hit enough greens at Wentworth (T12) to tell me not to discount the defending two time champion here with three other top-10’s since 2010. There’s nothing better to watch than Pablo when he’s in the mood! Bookie mistake to have him at 60/1.

Long Odds Glory Shot

Bradley Dredge 70/1

I’m full of admiration for Bradley Dredge and his excellent return to form this year. Yes he has missed his last two cuts (Nordea, BMW PGA) but a rest will have been welcome.  Knows this course like the back of his hand and has five top 20’s in his last seven visits. Watch for him to get back on the horse at great odds.
