Knowing it would be a fairly quiet week on the betting front I have saved all the previews until today and just done the one with all bets and events covered in the same post.
The Russian Open on the European tour has to be just about the weakest event I have ever seen on the main tour and it is difficult to back some of the tours lesser lights at such short prices. However there maybe an angle in and it's all to do with a course in Italy - namely Gardagolf. I am not sure it can be a coincidence that Carlos del Moral has won at this weeks venue and Gardagolf, so too has Sam Little and last years winner Michael Hoey was 2nd at the Italian venue. It doesn't give us a whole host of names to look at - Gronberg has won the Italian Open there but has been poor for so long now but Jose Manuel Lara has been 2nd at Gardagolf. Admittedly he too isn't having the best of seasons but he has a habit of turning up when least expected at suitable venues such as when 5th in Hong Kong before Christmas and at least he knows how to get the job done. It really is a speculative play but he has been 4th and 2nd in Russia before 0.2 ew 200/1
The PGA tour moves north for the Canadian Open this week and to a venue that hasn't been used since 2001 the Royal Montreal course. One player jumped out at me at the early prices and that was Johnson Wagner who has just started to find some form. Although he is a three time winner on tour he does often endure long spells in the doldrums but in his last two starts he has been striking the ball superbly and if the putter starts behaving as well he is a player to have onside 0.3 ew 150/1
Whilst we may have left Liverpool behind last week there is a certain ring of a Beatles song to my other pick. It was 20 years ago today..... (well next week!) that this player won his one and only PGA tour event the St Jude Classic. His career has been plagued by injuries ever since but every now and then he turns up on the leaderboard. In 2001 he led here at the cut before fading to 14th mORe
