EURO TOUR: ISPS HANDA PERTH INTERNATIONAL
The Lake Karrinyup course hosts this event for the third time in succession. Players who can handle windier conditions which tend to prevail here have an advantage.
OUTRIGHT: Mark Foster, 0.5 pts win and place 66/1 (1/4 Odds 5 places)
It is a long time since Foster recorded his first (and only) Tour win but that may change in what is a relatively weak field this week. His current form is strong with a tied eleventh place three weeks ago followed up by a fourth place last week in Hong Kong and consequently he looks fair value at these odds.
PGA TOUR: THE MCGLADREY CLASSIC
The Harry Colt designed Sea Island course hosts this event for the fifth year in succession. The course is quite tight off the tee with driving position being paramount for
approach shots to the small, tricky Bermuda greens.
OUTRIGHT: Scott Brown, 0.5 pts win and place 40/1 (1/4 Odds 5 places)
Brown recorded his maiden Tour success in the 2013 Puerto Rico Open and it is that success, achieved on a course with similar playing characteristics to Sea island, that gives us the best clue as to his chances this week. So it is unsurprising that his previous finishes here read 20T in 12 and 4T in 13. Add to that the fact that he is in good current form with two top fifteen place finishes in his last two outings and we have the makings of a decent value bet.
OUTRIGHT: Scott Langley, 0.5 pts win and place 66/1 (1/4 Odds 5 places)
Langley has recently shown all the characteristics of a player on the verge of making a breakthrough on Tour with a number of consistent performances within the past six weeks or so. With a game built around accuracy rather than power this type of course is better suited to his playing style and he did in fact finish tied 22nd here last year.
OUTRIGHT: Kevin Kisner, 0.5 pts win and place 100/1 (1/4 Odds 5 places)
Kisner went to Georgia Tech College and has strong local connections with The Sea Island Course. He started and finished strongly here last year and, with two top ten finishes to his name in recent weeks, looks primed to mount a challenge.
