CIMB Classic Each-Way Tips: Each-way bets for the PGA Tour event in Malaysia

Casey has performed right across the globe

For the second week running one of Joe Dyer and Mike Norman's each-way picks was just one birdie short of landing a return on Sunday afternoon, but the guys remain confident and are back with three more selections as the PGA Tour lands in Kuala Lumpur...

"The older John Senden gets, the more consistent he becomes. For regular bettors of the Aussie he may not win as many tournaments as you'd like - in fact he has just two victories to his name on the PGA Tour - but he can often represent a solid each-way wager at big odds."

Back John Senden @ 41.040/1


*Each-way terms: ¼ odds, 5 places


Fancied Runner - Back Paul Casey @ 29.028/1

This revitalised Englishman is one of the great travellers in world golf, with wins in the Middle East, China and Australia to his name and therefore has to be taken seriously this week. Injury-hit for much of the last few years, Casey joined the winners' circle again at the KLM Open in mid-August to underline his wellbeing.

Given a good week with the driver our shortest price selection has the game to contend as his greens-in-reg figures are impressive.

Casey is a very classy player and could well go very close this week against a small field of outclassed Asian Tour regulars and far-from-home Americans.  


Mid-Ranker - Back John Senden @ 41.040/1

The older John Senden gets, the more consistent he becomes. For regular bettors of the Aussie he may not win as many tournaments as you'd like - in fact he has just two victories to his name on the PGA Tour - but he can often represent a solid each-way wager at big odds.

He's not particularly big in the betting this week at just 40/1 but the reasons for that are simple. It's a reduced field (just 80 go to post), and it's not one that has a lot of strength in depth to it either. At under 7,000 yards for a par 72 course Senden's accuracy will come into play also - he regularly ranks highly for Driving Accuracy and Total Driving (accuracy mixed in with distance), and he was in the top 15% of all PGA Tour players for All-Round Ranking (all the key attributes) last season.

With such good stats it's no surprise to see that Senden has put a good string of results together in recent months which included finishing no lower than 26th in each of his last five starts on Tour, including a top-five finish at the high class Deutsche Bank Championship at the beginning of September.

If the 43-year-old can take his now reliable solid game to Kuala Lumpur this week then don't be surprised at all if he's in contention for his third PGA Tour victory come Sunday.


Outsider - Back Roberto Castro @ 151.0150/1

Ok, ok, this is way out of leftfield but bear with us.

Following an impressive 2013, last season was one to forget for Castro so we're taking a flier that an extended period out of the game (not seen since July) has worked the trick and he can get back to his best.

The track should suit as the Peruvian-Costa Rican with a US passport is ultra-accurate off tee and fairway - handy as water is in-play on more than two-thirds of the holes at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club - and very decent on the greens.

Castro put together a phenomenal run throughout the summer of 2013, notably a first round leader at The Players at water-y Sawgrass, and if anywhere near that form can certainly contend at a huge price.
