Paddy’s golf trader Iain McLaughlin joined PPTV once again to offer up some value suggestions for this week’s golf.
Iain dialled in with Graham Temple to offer you his tips for the Scottish Open and the Sanderson’s Farms Championship which you can see in full below.
Robert MacIntyre should be suited by the tough conditions we’re expecting at The Renaissance Club this week. He hasn’t played many tournaments recently but what caught my eye was his 24th-place finish at the Andalucia Masters at Valderrama.
He really loves links golf, he’s from Scotland so this is his national Open and his best performances have come on links layouts.
With the home comforts and the love of links golf, I think Robert MacIntyre can go close this week.
Jordan Smith was seventh last week at the Irish Open and looking through his figures, he led the field in strokes gained getting to the green which was really good. His long game is in really high order.
With these sorts of tournaments you’re looking for players with links form in the past and Smith was fifth last year at the Alfred Dunhill Links.
I think he’s good value at the price, given he’s in such good form and that liking for links golf.
Luke List was eighth last week at the Bahamas which was a really good performance. If you do back him, a bit of a health warning on the greens!
He’s not the best putter in the world but we’ll take a chance at the prices given how elite his long game is. He’s got a bit of course form here, too. He was second in 2016. At the big odds he has, he’s a good bet here this week.
Davis Riley was in good form but he’s had three missed cuts on the bounce which is why we’re getting a big price on a potential future star on the PGA Tour.
He went to college just down the road from the Jackson Country Club and was 39th here last year. He’s a much better player now and can go well at a huge price.
Will Gordon was third in the Travellers Championship in June and hasn’t been in the greatest form since then but I think his attributes will suit Jackson Country Club.
You’re able to get loose with the driver here and really get your ball out there so his strong game off the tee really will help. I’m hoping, if he can bring his iron play back to some sort of level, he can go well at a really nice price.
Brandon Hagy is another in patchy form but he has shown up well in pockets. He got a 12th at the Barracuda Championship a couple of months ago and has a 14th and 18th finish here in four appearances.
So, Brandon Hagy has a liking for the course, has a really good price and can go well here too.
