january 19th 17.55 Bahamas Great Abaco Classic

Ben Taylor
20 points ew 150/1
(125/1 fine)
The young Englishman won on Tour early last year in Colombia but then didn’t really perform very well for the rest of the year but judging from his effort last week in the Bahamas then maybe he still has a lot to offer. In 2017/2018 he missed the cut both times @ Emerald Bay with rounds of 85/81/69/77 – admittedly it played easier last week but with all rounds at par or better he finished 20th. His form in the last two years here has been much better going 27/19 and last year he fired a 65 and a 66 and then won a few weeks later. It is worth noting the year before his win in Bogota he fired a closing round of 65 and there seems to be a pattern emerging with his form of finishing higher each time he plays a course again.

Kevin Dougherty
20 points ew 100/1
(80/1 fine) 100 available Betfair/Paddy Power not showing on Oddschecker
I am going to take a chance on Dougherty this week despite a slight reservation about him not teeing it up in the first event last week. He had a solid first season on tour with a 2nd, 4th, 6th,6th and 7th and came agonisingly close to gaining a berth on the PGA Tour when he needed birdie on the final hole of the final regular season event to clinch 25th spot – his chip came up one inch short! The 4th place mentioned above came here so he can definitely play the course so a three figure price is too big to resist.
