Alfred Dunhill Links Championship Betting Tips and Preview
The Alfred Dunhill Links is unique on the European Tour as it is the only pro-am event of the year. Every tournament allows amateur players the chance to play alongside the pros on the day before it gets underway but only the Dunhill Links allows them to get inside the ropes and play along in a prestigious event with millions of pounds up for grabs.
Each team of professional and amateur will play a round at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns before the cut falls on Saturday. One final round at St Andrews will determine the winner on Sunday and there is plenty to play for.
While some players still need to secure their playing privileges for next year, others are trying to position themselves for a crack at the season ending Race to Dubai playoffs. Ross Fisher is very much in the latter camp and he must be fancying his chances of a big win in Scotland.
Fisher’s not had his best stuff of late but he is a wonderful proponent of links golf who will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the pro-am. The 2008 winner of this tournament looks set for another assault on the title and represents very good each way value at 50/1 with Coral.
Safeway Open Betting Tips and Preview
In his press conference after winning the FedEx Cup, Justin Thomas showed the gathered press the goals that he set for himself before the season. You can expect the large cohort of recent graduates to the PGA Tour to be doing something similar this week before they tee it up at Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa.
There is always a great deal of excitement at the start of a new season but, as countless professional golfers will tell you, it takes huge work and no little amount of luck to keep those excitement levels up on the PGA Tour.
Jamie Lovemark knows exactly how hard it is to make the step up to the big leagues. He made a huge impression when making it to a playoff after being given a sponsor’s invitation to his first ever PGA Tour event in 2009 but is yet to win a PGA Tour event and he’s been through the heartbreak of losing his tour card.
This year is huge for the 29-year-old and after a strong finish to last season, he could claim that all important win at the first time of asking at 40/1 with Coral.
