Bruce Millington, Ian Wilkerson and Iain McLaughlin bring you their betting tips for the main events across the golfing globe this week in the Golf Postcast.
The KLM Open is the biggest draw in Europe, taking place in the village of Spijk in the Netherlands, while the final major on the women’s tour takes place on the shores of Lake Geneva in south-eastern France. And with the PGA tour on hiatus, the lads cast their eye over the vagaries of the Web.com tour.
On the show:
– Can Eddie Pepperell produce golf to match his Twitter game in the KLM Open?
– Britain’s rising star of the LPGA tour Georgia Hall is one to look out for at the Evian Championships.
– Our self confessed Web.com tour expert Ian Wilkerson thinks now is the time to pay attention to stay ahead of the betting in October.
– We take a look at your questions and bring you the latest in the Ryder Cup ante-post market.
– And there’s loads more tips…
Ian W: Erik Van Rooyen 25/1
“He’s hasn’t played the course before but the greens-in-regualation stat here has proved to be the key numbers here – six of the top eight at this tournament last year were in the top ten for GIR – and Joost Luiten, who won the KLM in 2016, was second in that stat, so I lean towards Van Rooyen, as he’s sixth in that category at the moment.”
Iain M: – Jorge Campillo 45/1
“He’s a big price in this field… He opened 2017 here with a round of 76 but had rounds of 66 and 65 in there as well, so enjoys the course and just had a bad round spattered in there. He’s a strong iron-player and a great putter on his day.”
Ian W: Georgia Hall – 20/1
“She won the British Open… and has been competitive on the other side of the Atlantic as well. Having finished tenth in this tournament before and looking like a player on the upgrade, I think she’s an excellent price.”
Iain M: Brooke M Henderson – 12/1
“She’s clearly the best player in the world at the moment, I thought 12/1 was a very fair price. She has a good record around the course and won two weeks ago. She’s had strong form in majors all season too.”
Albertsons Boise Open
Ian W: Denny McCarthy – 18/1
McCarthy looks a worthy favourite. He’s missed just two cuts in his last twelve efforts on the main tour and he’s claimed two top ten finishes in the last two Web.com events.”
Iain M: Sung-jae Im – 28/1
“He’s won the Web.com tour money list this year, including two wins, one of them the Portland open just three weeks ago, so he’s in good form.”
