Betting Tips for the Smart Punter

Alfred Dunhill offers big value

We head back to Europe after an amazing Ryder Cup where we made 5 points over the weekend. Scotland is the destination for the Alfred Dunhill where there are plenty of value bets to get on. Many of the European Ryder Cup stars are in action here but we’re staying away from the weary travellers who will find it hard to get up for this after the exertions of Hazeltine.

My first pick for the Alfred Dunhill is Bernd Wieberger who has hit some great form in the last month finishing runner up to Joost Luiten in Holland and then 5th place in Germany the following week. He came up against a player in Luiten who was phenomenal in the final round and no one would have beat him on that day, but Wiesberger still kept with him all the way. He stated he’s not playing as well as he can, so more is expected from the Austrian. Another positive is his record at St Andrew’s where he’s finished top 20 in the last three seasons.

Another who’s hit a purple patch towards the end of the season is Tommy Fleetwood with three top 20’s in the last month. He’s been finishing rounds extremely strongly and only needs a good start to put himself in contention. Slow starts have given him too much work to do come the weekend so expect a big display from the Englishman this Thursday. On top of the good form shown recently he loves this tournament with a handful of top 5 finishes in the last few years, he looks a great bet and will have enjoyed a week off and will be fresh and raring to go.

The find of the tour this year has to be Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnstone and not just for his charisma. The guy can really play and has been ultra consistent this season with the pinnacle in Spain where he won in great style. Last time out he finished third in Switzerland with another good performance and he’s had a well deserved break since then. His form in the Alfred Dunhill is nothing to write home about, but he’s a completely different player to last season and will surely be thereabouts come Sunday afternoon.

Finally two big outsiders to take a look at. Thorbjorn Olesen won this event last year but hasn’t been in the winners enclosure since then. He generally records a victory every season and although his game isn’t top class at present, he’s shown enough in recent events to have a small bet on him retaining his title, at a course that he obviously enjoys. The other big price is Australian lefty Richard Green who’s had a consistent month or two without actually challenging for a title. His last 6 rounds have all been in the 60’s which clearly shows he’s happy with his game, and in a tournament where there are question marks over the top players he’s well worth a punt at treble figures.
