With just over a week to go before the US Open, the PGA Tour pops over the border for the Canadian Open and our man Steve Rawlings is back with his in-depth preview.
Steve says: "I'm waiting on the weather and the draw before contemplating any further wagers but I was very surprised to be able to back Brendon Todd at a triple figure price following his third place finish in the Charles Schwab Challenge last time out.
"This looks just his sort of test and if he plays like he did at Colonial, where he ranked first for Driving Accuracy, fifth for Scrambling and fourth for Strokes Gained Putting, he's going to be there or thereabouts.
Steve's bet: Back Brendan Todd @ 120.0119/1
The PGA Tour crosses the border and Dave Tindall has three each-way tips for the action at St George's G&CC, including headline selection Tony Finau.
Dave says: "The first four months of the calendar year were pretty underwhelming for Big Tone but he's definitely found his stride in recent times.
"He ranked 1st for Strokes Gained: Tee To Green when runner-up at the Mexico Open four starts ago and after a strong closing 68 secured a top 30 finish at the US PGA, Finau was fourth at the Charles Schwab Challenge last time out.
"Colonial Country Club doesn't seem a million miles different to this week's test and Finau likes Bentgrass greens as he showed when ranking 17th for SG: Putting at the Charles Schwab. He was also second for Scrambling there.
"This is a new course to virtually everyone but Finau has always had plenty of success when stepping outside of the United States. His first win was in Puerto Rico while he's made all four Canadian Open cuts and was fifth at Glen Abbey on his penultimate start in this event in 2017."
Dave's bet: Back Tony Finau each-way @ 25/1
If you're looking for an early pay-out at the Canadian Open this week, then the First Round Leader market is your port of call. Dave Tindall has a trio of tips.
Dave says: "As well as making a title challenge there, we've also seen Harold Varner win February's Saudi International, take sixth place in The Players Championship and third in the RBC Heritage.
"And fast starts have been part of the deal too. He had a piece of the first-round lead at the Charles Schwab Challenge last time, and was also in the top 10 after 18 holes at the US Masters and the RBC Heritage.
"He's opened with a round in the 60s in each of his last three Canadian Opens and, on current form, looks a good bet at 50s to start fast again. Varner tees off at 1.04pm so should have the warmer conditions."
Dave's bet: Back Harold Varner each-way at 50/1
One of professional golf's oldest national opens returns to the PGA Tour schedule on Thursday. Words and stats compiled by Andy Swales.
Andy says: "St George's is a beautifully crafted course with contoured fairways and undulating greens. This parkland layout has tree-lined fairways and plenty of sand.
"Although there are no large water hazards on the course, there are a couple of soggy ditches to avoid on the back nine. Originally designed by Stanley Thompson in 1929, the course was renovated by Ian Andrew three years ago in readiness for hosting this week's Canadian Open.
Chris Kirk's rehabilitation following personal issues - which led to him taking time away from golf in 2019 - continues in an upwards direction. The world No 66 is a four-time winner on the PGA Tour and he tied-for-fifth at last month's PGA Championship.
Andy's Player to Watch: Chris Kirk @ 50.049/1
We're off to Sweden for a unique event this week where the men and women will do battle in the second edition of the Scandinavian Mixed. Steve Rawlings previews the action.
Steve says: "At last year's inaugural staging I was hopeful that the women could make an impact and I will be again this time around but the simple truth is that the men largely dominated the tournament and that will probably be the case again this year.
"I may have an outsider or two here in the Find Me a 100 Winner column but for now I'm happy to kick things off with a modest bet on Alex Noren.
"The two weekends off are a slight concern but they were in a much higher grade and he could prove very hard to beat if he plays like he did three starts ago in Texas.
"Noren is the only player in the world's top-100 in the field (ranked 60th) and the next best is Johannes Veerman, who's currently ranked 143rd."
Steve's bet: Alex Noren @ 11.521/2
The DP World Tour returns to Sweden this week for the Scandinavian Mixed and Matt Cooper has three selections with the Betfair Sportsbook paying seven places.
Matt says: "Late in the disrupted 2020 DP World Tour season John Catlin jumped into life during a glittering late summer/early autumn that saw him warm up nicely with T25th at The Belfry and then add victories at Valderrama and Galgorm Castle either side of tied eighth at Dom Pedro.
"Those wins in blustery spots between the trees in Spain and Ireland look like they'll read well this week. Last season he added more triumph at Diamond Country Club in Austria and tied seventh on defence of his title at Galgorm Castle.
"He's landed two top 25s in his last three starts with much improved Strokes Gained Tee to Green stats than he's had for a while. If the course does suit he can take aim at win number four at this level."
Matt's bet: John Catlin 1pt each-way @ 33/1
Halmstad Golf Club stages this unique tournament with words and form stats compiled by Andy Swales.
Andy says: "This week's tournament will take place over the North Course which dates back to before World War II.
"Carved out of an area of dense woodland, just a few hundred yards from Sweden's south-west coast, the North Course is full of tree-lined fairways and gently undulating putting surfaces.
"Although the fairways are generously-wide, with water in play on only three holes, Halmstad has plenty of subtle dog-legs ready to test a golfer's accuracy from the tee.
Andy's Player to Watch: Alex Noren @ 11.010/1
The LIV Golf Invitational series debuts in London this week at the Centurion Club and Matt Cooper has two selections with the Betfair Sportsbook paying five places.
Matt says: "All told I quite like Ian Poulter's chances because he's never shied away from the pressure of winning money. In fact, he's said he spends so much on cars and extravagance specifically to drive himself to earn more; he didn't or doesn't want to get complacent.
"This week, therefore, represents a huge opportunity. He's never won on home soil, but he's come mighty close in many spots that are more or less this neck of the woods: at Woburn and The Grove, and going a little further afield The Belfry and the Forest of Arden.
"Moreover, if you look at his form over the last three months he might not have a raft of good finishes but in making eight cuts in 10 on the PGA Tour he's been scoring well against better fields than some above him.
"I have him nearer the top of the market in this field and, sensing he might chase the money on that final day rather than be afraid of it, am happy to have him on-side."
Matt's bet: Ian Poulter 1pt each-way @ 28/1
