This week it's the Scottish Open for the European Tour while the PGA moves to Mississippi for the Sanderson Farms Championship. Here's how to get our experts' best bets...

Sanderson Farms Championship - The Punter's preview

Steve Rawlings provides an extensive preview ahead of Thursday's start of this week's PGA event in Mississippi and explains why he's taking a chance on a clutch of outsiders.

"The last six winners, and seven of the last eight, were winning for the first time on the PGA Tour. This is a tough gig."

Back Doc Redman @ 39/140.0

Sanderson Farms Championship - First round leader tips

Who can make a fast start at the Sanderson? Dave Tindall picks three and also throws in one for the first round at the Scottish Open.

"The last time he got back to his favourite putting surface having been denied it for a while, the South Korean opened the Wyndham Championship with 65-65-62 to lead after 54 holes before finishing third."

Back Si-Woo Kim each-way @ 60/1

Sanderson Farms Championship - Each-way tips

Dave makes the case for backing Cameron Davis and two other players each-way at this week's PGA Tour event in Mississippi.

He says: "Davis has been in solid form in the last few months with top 15s at the 3M Open and Wyndham Championship. Looking at his round scores, the 25-year-old posted a trio of 65s at Sedgefield and then followed that by opening 64-65 at The Northern Trust."

Back Cameron Davis each-way @ 45/1

Sanderson Farms Championship - Form guide

Andy provides the course info and form stats for the players heading to Jackson for the PGA event...

He says: "Among America's up and coming young pros is Scottie Scheffler who will be hoping to pick up from where he left off after missing the US Open because he tested positive for Covid-19. He's ready to go again as he tries to continue the recent run that yielded some great performances in August and early September."

Scottish Open - The Punter's preview

It's the biggest European Tour event since the restart and Steve 'The Punter' Rawlings has the lowdown as well as a handful of players to back at big prices ahead of Thursday's start.

He says: "Looking at the latest forecasts, the wind is set to be a nuisance during the first three days before almost dying away completely on Sunday and the draw could be pivotal."

Back Lee Westwood @ 49/150.0

Scottish Open - Each-way tips

Matt Cooper has three each-way selections for the action from the Renaissance Club with the Betfair Sportsbook paying eight places.

He says: "Herbert was tied seventh at the chilly 2018 Dunhill Links, tied third a week later at a mucky Walton Heath and then T14th at the freezing Open de France last October."

Back Lucas Herbert each-way @ 35/1

Scottish Open - Form guide

Andy Swales provides a guide to the course and the players' form to help you decide who might be well-placed to succeed at the Renaissance Club.

"The reasonably generous fairways will become a lot tougher to manage if the wind blows hard this weekend, and the heavily contoured greens will almost certainly provide a tricky test."
