This weeks main event for me is the Czech Masters and I am sticking with last weeks pick David Lipsky as my main selection. He played as well as anybody last weekend climbing eventually to 14th and as I said last week it was this time last year he hit form which included a 19th place finish here despite a poor final round - £50 ew 50/1 + £25 56/1 average.
I will a give a chance to young Kevin Phelan this week who seems to be slowly finding some form again which he showed earlier when he gained a second and two thirds on the main tour. He strikes me as a player who learns with a bit of course experience so he could build on last years 23rd here - £30 ew 80/1 + £10 100 Betfair
Two outsiders I have backed are Mikael Lundberg and Marco Crespi. The former won a similarly weak Lyoness Open last year and was 3rd earlier this year when we were on in the Hassan Trophy - this is definitely his sort of level. He had two good rounds and two poor rounds here last season on his way to 30th and in 2011 was 2nd in the Czech Open. Whilst his form is poor he can turn it on from nowhere £20 win 250 Betfair + £15 top 5 40/1. Crespi also won a weak event last year in Spain and there have been signs of late of an upturn in form and a repeat performance of his 4th in the Shenzhen International in April should see him go close this week £15 ew 250/1 + £10 275 Betfair.
I have had a rare foray onto the Champions tour with £10 ew 250/1 on Jerry Smith in the Dicks Sporting Goods Open. He won his first Champions tour event just six weeks ago and for a change has some course form at En Joie in the now defunct BC Open.
Its the final event on the main tour before the "playoffs" and I have two selections. I like last weeks t4th Matt Fast - last year he tied for the lead after the first round in the News Sentinel then faded - last week he was 4th in that event. The next week he tied for the lead again at this weeks event before fading - so wonder if he mORe
