Golf Tips for Presidents Cup and British Masters, Plus Betting Offers and Free Bets
The PGA Tour season is over but before the stars of the American game can take a short break, there’s the small matter of the Presidents Cup. The USA go into the team tournament as the clear favourites but against the strongest International Team ever, will this finally be the year that the Americans lose their stranglehold on the trophy? Meanwhile, the European Tour continues apace with another world class field assembled for the British Masters. Tournament host Lee Westwood has attracted Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia and Alex Noren to compete in front of big crowds in the North East of England.

Presidents Cup Betting Tips and Preview
The Presidents Cup has not exactly been an ultra competitive event in recent years but a change to the format altered that in 2015. The International Team lost by just a single point in South Korea and their top quality roster of players will be hopeful of going even further at Liberty National.
The strength in depth and form of the players in Team USA suggest that they will have too much about them to be beaten on home soil. The best price you’ll get on the USA is the 3/10 that Coral are offering and it looks the only way to go in the winner market.
There are other options available to you, including the player markets. In the top International market you’ll find Adam Scott available at 13/2 with Coral. For a player who has become used to losing the Presidents Cup, Scott has a decent record in the Presidents Cup and as a winner of the 2013 Barclays at Liberty National, the Aussie looks set for a big week.
British Masters Betting Tips and Preview
After two years in the south of England, the British Masters heads to Newcastle and the Colt Course at Close House. Just a young venue, Close House has already hosted a Senior Tour event and now plays host to some of the best players in the world.
No matter the calibre of those competing, it will take a very well rounded game to be crowned the winner of the 2017 British Masters. The routing of Close House is tough enough as it winds up and down hills and through the natural Northumberland ground. The addition of fairway and greenside bunkers, ditches that are hidden off the tee and punishing rough waiting for wayward drives makes this a tough test of golf.
The weather forecast also suggests that it will be far from comfortable but Shane Lowry is more than capable of rising to the top in uncomfortable situations. He’s a World Golf Championship winner and held the 54 hole lead at a U.S. Open so Lowry can play well in testing conditions. He was good from tee to green last week and with far superior greens at Close House, Lowry is set for a crack at the British Masters title at 28/1 with Paddy Power.
