Scottish Open

The European tour moves on to the Scottish Opens the Renaissance club near North Berwick out of Edinburgh. A Tom Doak design adjacent to Muirfield it is neither the test or the mana of its famous neighbour. Scores are generally low and whilst it has seaside holes it’s not a patch on the nearby golden age links like North Berwick. The course plays 7303 yards (6650m) par 71, last year the winning score in a playoff was -22, Weisberger beat Hebert.

Amongst the favourites, I liked Weisberger at $25 on Betfair, all,other prices available only at Betfair. In the middle of the market I saw improvement in Jazz JaneWattanond -$90

Laurie Canter-$140

And Lots of value in

Jason Scrivener-$200

Callum Hill-$290 I marked him at $100

Alexander Bjork-$210

Lorenzo Gagli-$400

Min Woo Lee-$300 Wunderkind our to big odds

Jeung-Hun Wang-$240

Callum Shinkwin-$220 nearly got up for us a couple of years ago

Maverick Antcliff-$290 Should have won easily last week, but a horseshoe derailed him

Andrea Pavan-$650 Coming back to,previous strong form

Scott Hend-$380 loomed last week

Joel Stalter-$1000

Chris Wood-$900 former Ryder Cupper coming back from injury

Gaganjeet Bhullar-$1000 Indian Star


The LPGA returns to the Shoprite Classic at the Bay course of the Seaview Golf club on 670 acre property administered by Dolce hotels. The Course originally designed by Hugh Wilson and the famed Donald Ross was converted back to Ross’ iconic design and is now a 6247 yard (5700m) par 71 design testing imagination and shotmaking as golden age designers achieved. The course has a 69.5 rating with slope 120, an ideal test for the lady pros. The long hitting Lexie Thompson won in 2019, but the winning scores have varied from -4 to -17 and players of all lengths have prevailed.

Inbee Park-$13 on Betfair best player

Anna Nordquvist-$32 Wonderful recent record on this course

Ariya Jutanigarn-$46 Coming back to form

Thin market for the ladies, and no opportunity to bet back later but these appeared well overs to me

Emma Talley-$200 Young up and coming star

Hinako Shibuno-$190 The smiling Cinderella Won the British Womens

Maria Fernandez Torres-$300 Prominent recently

Madeline Sagstrom-$300

Gerina Piller-$400 Very good record here 3 Top tens recently

Cydney Clanton-$230 Had a couple of winning chances recently

Linnea Strom-$630 Young European contender

PGA Tour

The tour returns to the Sanderson Farms Championship at the Country Club of Jackson, Mississippi, the John Fought redesign of 2008 now extends to 7400 yards (6800m) par 72, last year won by Sebastian Munoz at 18 under after a playoff with Sungjae Im. Interestingly most of the past 14 winners have been medium length hitters, possibly due to the tiny complex green structures, Fought designed. Only Cameron Champ amongst the bomb and gouge brigade has prevailed.

I think Scottie Scheffler-$13.5 and Sungjae Im-$14.5 deserve favouritism, but the field is very tight in terms of performance soIm tipping at the long end with most value

Carlos Ortiz-$65 two seconds in a row here

Nate Lashley-$130 Got close last week and holds form

Robby Shelton-$150 Excels when the top players are absent

Patton Kizzire-$280 Good record here

Sanity Theegala-$460 Young Star on the rise

Peter Malnati-$300 Previous winner here and an expert on small greens

Joseph Bramlett-$340 Wont be long

Andrew Putnam-$410 Regularly competitive

Aaron Baddeley-$630 Pops up in this grade

Fabian Gomez-$410 If he gets to the front it’s all over

Sebastian Cappellin-$360 Young Dane competing often

Bill Haas-$800 Old timer with a great record here

William McGirt-$850 Another with a good record here and on small greens

Luke Donald-$920 This course reminds me of Harbourtown where Donald always excels. Take the $40 Top ten finish on Betfair also.
