PGA TOUR: CIMB CLASSIC
The Kuala Lumpur course hosts this event for the second year in succession. The limited evidence from last year suggests that accurate driving is key here.
OUTRIGHT: Stewart Cink, 0.5 pts win and place 70/1 (1/4 Odds 5 places)
Cink appeared to have lost his mojo after his 2009 Open win but has rededicated and there are some recent signs of green shoots as he has played well for three of the four rounds in his last two events. Having finished tied eleventh here last year he looks worth noting at these favourable odds.
EURO TOUR: BMW MASTERS
The 7,600 yards long, par 72, Nicklaus designed Lake Malaren course hosts this new event on Tour for the third time. If played from the Tiger Tees the course, with its four par 5s, is likely to suit the longer hitters this week. Scoring is generally on the low side.
OUTRIGHT: George Coetzee, 0.5 pts win and place 40/1 (1/4 Odds 5 places)
Long hitting Coetzee recorded his maiden European Tour win in this year’s Joburg Open and although his form has been patchy since then recent performances, with consecutive top thirty finishes, suggest that he is getting back on track. His top ten finish here in 2012 bodes well for his chances.
OUTRIGHT: Nicolas Colsaerts, 0.5 pts win and place 40/1 (1/4 Odds 5 places)
Colsaerts finished tied fourteenth here in 2012 and looks well suited to this track. He arrives brimming with confidence after having recorded two top five finishes in the last five weeks and looks worthy of some support
OUTRIGHT: Alexander Levy, 0.5 pts win and place 45/1 (1/4 Odds 5 places)
With some uncanny links to both the sponsor and the venue Levy looks like one to have on your short list this week. Levy has already won in China this season and also finished third in last year’s BMW International event in Germany. The long hitting Levy has a very cavalier style of play which might be suited to this bomber’s track.
