Morrison the man in Germany

pro2punter - James Morrison

There will be a lot of tired bodies travelling back from Oakmont this week and the fresh James Morrison can be the man at the BMW International Open in Germany. Top end of the field is pretty good and it includes the like of Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson and Danny Willett, none of whom are in our staking plan this week.

It’s been a very consistent season so far for James Morrison and although not a flare player he is happy to grind out results and absolutely loves playing wherever he is. Two weeks ago he played well yet again for a fourth place at Lyoness Open in Austria and can take his form to Germany where he enjoys playing, an 11th place in this event last year the proof. Also the fact that four out of five winners of a European event after a US Open have been won by spectators of the major are a big plus for Morrison having last weekend at home practicing his game.

Another who stayed at home watching the US Open was Thongchai Jaidee, a man that will admit himself he hasn’t been up to scratch this year. A few top 20’s on the European Tour are not up to his usual standard, but this week he returns to a course that has produced the best from him in the past. The last two times the BMW has been played at Gut Laerchenhof Jaidee has recorded two top tens so clearly enjoys the layout. If he can rekindle last seasons form then a good showing is on the cards.

Lee Slattery is a player who traveled back from Oakmont and could play a role in this tournament come the final round. Although finishing down the field at the US Open he did play a couple of really impressive rounds and his swing looks in a good place at the moment. It’s hard to see the top three in the betting all firing so a couple of outsiders are worth a punt. He also won the Russian Open last season so knows how to get it done if in contention.

Finally a massive priced outsider who has been playing nicely for a while. Youngster Marcus Kinhult is a promising talent and is spoken of in high regard by commentators and pros respectively. He’s gradually getting used to the rigors of the European Tour and a 10th at Crans San Sur in Switzerland is the best form he has so far. A 26th place in Austria two weeks ago was a nice display and it was only a poor final round that pushed him down the leader board. Take a punt on the Swede for a maiden tour success in Germany.
