Welcome back for another instalment of my golf betting tips. I’ve put together two really decent squads for this week’s big tournaments. On the DP World Tour we have the Open De Espana, where Jon Rahm attempts to win for the fourth time, whilst over on the PGA Tour, we have the Shriners Children’s Open, which is always a low scoring event.
If you have been following my golf tips over the last few weeks, then you’ll already know that I’m in good form, having found the winner for three of the last four Tour events I’ve covered. If you backed them when advised, the first two came in at 100/1 and 12/1, then last week, Luke List won for us again at 50/1. Hopefully we can keep up the momentum and have another profitable week.
To make the most of this week’s golf betting tips, I have a fantastic offer for you provided by Bet365. If you bet just £10 you will get £30 in free bets in return. All of my selections this week are advised each way, and with Bet365 offering eight places for both events, what better way to use those free bets.
The DP World Tour heads to Club De Campo this week as the course hosts the Spanish Open for the fourth consecutive year. Jon Rahm has opened up as a very short-priced 2/1 favourite, having won three of the last four events and he’ll be mighty hard to knock off his pedestal. But he’s way too short for me, so I’ve been busy looking elsewhere for some value, and I’ve come up with three likely candidates for you.
As mentioned, it’s going to take a classy player to get the better of Jon Rahm this week, but I think Antoine Rozner can push him all the way if he turns up in good form. Even though he hasn’t played at his best in his last three events, that doesn’t actually concern me at all, because this course will be much more to his liking. You need a player that can shoot low scores consistently here and he has all of the right attributes. I think Antoine Rozner will bounce back to form this week and put on a fantastic performance.
My next selection is Thorbjorn Olesen. In my opinion, this man possesses one of the best golf swings on Tour. He won the Thailand Classic back in February and he has already won seven times on the DP World Tour. His most notable performance for me came in the French Open, where he was absolutely dialled in with his irons and looking totally in control. I think he has a really good chance of adding another title to his name this week.
Last, but by no means least, my third selection is Adrian Otaegui, who has four DP World Tour titles to his name already and he really showed some fantastic form in the French Open. I think he will really relish playing in his home country and he has enough class to put four good rounds together. I would like to see him start the tournament quickly, as he tends to be a real momentum player and if that happens, I think it could be a very special week for him.
Las Vegas is the destination for this year’s Shriners Open and we have a typically low-scoring event about to take place on the PGA Tour. Tom Kim is last year's winner and he’ll be hoping to retain his crown, having opened up as the 12/1 favourite. He has an obvious chance and to be honest, I thought he would be shorter in the market. That said, I still feel there is some nice value on offer, at much bigger prices, for this week’s event.
My first betting tip for the Shriners is Vincent Norrman, who is a prime example of the superb talent coming through from Sweden at the moment. Despite this being his rookie season, he has already racked up wins on both the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour. It’s clear that he thrives best on low-scoring courses, having shot 22 under to win the Barbasol and then just two months later, shooting in a final round of 65 to claim the Irish Open. I think he has a massive chance this week and he is a very good bet.
The next player on my list is Cam Davis, a player that simply oozes class and he is in seriously good form at the minute. He has had four Top 10s in his last five events and his best finish so far was also his most recent, where he placed third in the Fortinet at 17 under par. He comes into this low-scoring event flushing his irons and his wedges, and he has seemingly improved with his putter too. It’s simply not possible to leave out Cam Davis out of this week’s squad.
My third PGA Tour pick, is Christiaan Bezuidenhout. He has been one of my favourite players on Tour for a very long time, but he really caught my eye in last week's Sanderson Farms. He’s a naturally talented player, with a very good golf swing and he had already racked up three wins on the DP World Tour before switching to the PGA Tour. He most certainly looked good last week in the Sanderson Farms, with rounds of 66, 69 and two 68s, so I’m sure it won't be too much longer until he finally gets his maiden victory in the US.
My final selection for this week is J.T. Poston, who has been in some consistent form of late. He has had four Top 10s in his last seven starts and has won both the Wyndham Championship and the John Deere previously. That is the sort of form I really like around here and he always seems to play well at the back end of the season. I must be honest and say that he has lost his bottle on a few occasions, which is a slight worry, but he gets this opportunity from me as he does tick a lot of boxes for this particular event.
