A strong field has assembled this week at the revamped Wentworth track which will test the patience and accuracy of the players especially down the closing stretch. Ability to score well on the par 5s is key here and course experience and ability to read the subtle borrows on the greens are strong assets. Winners here tend to be either top ranked players or rank outsiders.
OUTRIGHT: Lee Westwood, 0.5 pts win and place 12/1
Westwood moved to Florida some months back and has now committed to playing on the PGA Tour so makes a rare foray on to European soil this week. Having recently turned 40 he ought to be worth watching over the next few months and in good current form as he is may be too good for the field this week on a course where he has already recorded a top ten in 2010 and a runner-up finish in 2011.
OUTRIGHT: Francesco Molinari, 0.5 pts win and place 50/1
Molinari’s renowned ball striking accuracy ought to stand him in good stead at Wentworth and he has indeed finished inside the top ten and the top twenty in the last three years here. He played very well indeed last week in Bulgaria so can go very close if he maintains that form level.
OUTRIGHT: David Horsey, 0.5 pts win and place 70/1
Like Molinari Horsey is an excellent ball striker and on paper his game looks a good fit to the Wentworth course. So it is somewhat surprising that he has only recorded one top ten finish here in 2011, albeit that was despite a very poor third round of 74. On the back of three consecutive top ten finishes in his last three outings he looks good value at these odds.
