Colin’s Golf Tips in case missed…
Ian Poulter 1 point ew 20/1 1/5 7 BF 18/1 1/5 8 SB 18/1 1/5 7 BFSB PP BO
Ian needs to win in his attempt to be included in the ryder cup team,won the Italian Open twice in the past
Matteo Manassero 1 point ew 80/1 1/5 7 BF BW
Matteo was born across the lake and as been playing this course since he was 5 and at 80/1 is worth a bet
Tiger Woods 1 point ew 20/1 1/5 7 CO BO
Tiger appears to have his mojo back and with 5 wins and 8 top 10 finishes at Murifield Village this is the place to start winning again
Marc Leishman 1 point ew 33/1 1/5 7 CO BetStars
With storms and windy conditions expected then Marc is the man, lets hope that he can redeem himself after that disappointing 2nd a couple of weeks ago
Anyone know an alternative site to Oddschecker for by not being able to access them this morning cost us for Bet Fred staff said that Manassero was 90/1 this morning

I’ve kept quiet on the golf front here, but have punted on it for a number of years with moderate success – i don’t keep records as far too lazy, I keep meaning to go back and do an ROI at some point but time doesn’t permit at the moment.
Anyway looking at the Italian Open this week its a new track, that’s tree lined and reported by some of the pro’s to be playing long and soft, with low scoring expected. The greens are also supposed to be quite small so it puts a premium on the ball strikers and top scramblers. This should suit the longer hitters more but they will need a sharp short game. As its a new track I’m not going too mad but have played 3 that have form in Italy, and are strong on courses and similar conditions:
Matt Wallace 55/1 ew – Hits it a mile and has won twice in the last season and half since he’s joined the tour. I’ve been impressed by his game in contention given his relative inexperience. He was leading this event (different course) for 3 rounds last year before being over taken on the final day. He has a sharp short game and has also won a lot in the country on the Alps tour. He can also go low and is my main fancy here.
Lucas Bjerregaard 40/1 ew – Another long hitter in extremely good form with 3 top 10s in the last 3 tournaments. Has performed well in Italy in the past and is striking the ball beautifully at the moment, he was ranked #1 in GIR stat last week and top 10 the few weeks before. It looks like a second win is coming and with these conditions I can see him going close. Hopefully he doesn’t suffer any burn out from his recent good performances.
Alex Levy 40/1 ew – When I hear talk of a course playing long and soft I automatically think of this man, as most of his wins have come in these conditions. He hits a mile and is a supreme ball striker and scrambler that likes low scoring courses as he can string together birdies when on a roll. He has 1 win this season at what I thought would be an unsuited track as he pushes for a Ryder cup place in his homeland.

Interesting that you have Tiger here. I struggle to see him getting back to a winning level against this opposition. I do like Leishman at 33/1 for 1 point each way. I also like Bubba Watson at 40/1 for 1 point each way. I know he blows hot and cold but has some form on this course. I am against Jason Day as he is obliged to play here as he is a member here but would not have played here other than he had to. I will oppose him in a Matchbook tournament matchbook against Rory at 1.92. I have also had a match bet for Justin Rose at evens against Dustin Johnson at evens. Justin won last week and this is a second shot course and so DJ’s driver may be a handicap in that he may be too long?
Last week we lost 8 points and so are only up 2.5 points for 2018 to date. Webb Simpson missed the cut and Adam Scott plodded around. At Wentworth both Matt Fitzpatrick and Paul Casey played solidly but missed the places. Matt may go well in Italy this week at 20/1?

Tiger is not one i thought would back again however he is starting to look better recently and with his stats here played 15 times won 5 placed 8 times in the top ten,so if he is going to win again or get close this is the course.
Watson like Webb Simpson can never to find them when they win or placed.
Good luck with your picks.

Had a look at comparison sites and it shows how far ahead of the field Oddschecker is.
