Our golf experts recommend bets for this week's Safeway Open and Portugal Masters including outright winners, first round leaders, each-way picks and more...
"Ninth in the US Open at Pebble Beach last year, Hadley boasts a strong record in California with four top 25s and a T29 in his last six starts in the Golden State."
The 2020/21 PGA Tour tees off in California with the 14th edition of the Safeway Open and Steve Rawlings provides his usual in-depth preview.
He says: "All six course winners have ranked inside the top-seven for Scrambling and the last two winners have both managed to get up-and-down more often than anyone else."
Back Brendan Steele @ [26.0]
Dave Tindall has three each-way selections to make a fast start at Silverado, California on Thursday.
He says: "Ninth in the US Open at Pebble Beach last year, Chesson Hadley boasts a strong record in California with four top 25s and a T29 in his last six starts in the Golden State. That includes T17 in the Barracuda Championship at the start of August and he followed that two weeks later with a first-round 65 at the Wyndham Championship."
Dave also has three each-way selections for the PGA Tour opener in California and is convinced you need to back somebody who's good off the tee.
He says: "Looking through the stats and two of the last three winners - Cameron Champ and Brendan Steele - ranked 1st for Strokes Gained: Off The Tee so I want a good driver of the ball."
Paul Krishnamurty has three more outsiders to back on the European and PGA Tours, all at 99/1 or more.
He says: "Robin Sciot-Siegrist has twice looked on course to win, only to blow up in front."
Portugal Masters - The Punter's Preview
Steve also gets stuck into the European Tour event, providing course info and tournament history in his search for the players who could thrive at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course.
He says: "Steven Brown was an almost unconsidered [320.0] shot before the off last year but outsiders have a great record in the event. Lee Westwood, 11 years ago, is the only well-fancied winner in the event's entire 13-year history."
Back Guido Migliozzi @ [65.0]
Matt Cooper has three each-way selections for the action from the Portugal Masters with the Betfair Sportsbook paying seven places...
He says: "On his debut at the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course he posted scores of 65-70-67-69 to land an always-in-contention tied seventh and a year later he carded a brilliant 64."
Portugal Masters - Course And Form
Ahead of the action in the Algarve Andy Swales provides a guide to the course and a study of the latest form stats that should arm bettors with everything they need to know. Also read his guide to Silverado.
He says: "Nine of the previous 13 winners were from Britain or Ireland, with just one non-European taking the chequered flag. Scoring is usually on the low side with no champion, as yet, posting a higher 72-hole total than 270."
And: "If you're looking for a complete outsider to earn you some each-way cash, then world No.500 Dave Coupland might be worth investigating."
