It's half term week and things need to be juggled so research was done in the evening and bets were found when prices appeared but to be honest it's a quiet week and I have only found three bets worth having so I'll be fairly brief.
The PGA tour ventures far from its shores to Malaysia for the CIMB Classic and with four renewals behind us it is clear that the PGA players have the upper hand. Aphibarnrat came close for us last year but he is the only local player to come close so far. The Thai had winning form around Kuala Lumpur and I have gone for Seung-Yul Noh who also has winning form round the track but is now an established PGA pro. He won the Malaysian Open here when a teenager and finally won in hot and sticky Louisiana this year on the PGA tour. I was worried he would be a bit rusty but he warmed up in Korea last week improving with every round to finish 2nd. So we have the current and the course form and it all boiled down to price - back in 2012 in this event he was 20/1 on a different course and that was with Tiger in the field - hence a decent bet this week 0.75 ew 50/1
The European tour also pitches up in Asia this week with the BMW Masters from Lake Malaren in China. This is the third running of the event and I found that the two past winners had won in very different conditions but both Hanson and Gonzalez-Castano had also both won the KLM Open at Hilversumsche. There are plenty other correlations between the two but to be honest I am not sure why and sometimes we just have to say it is what it is! It did lead me to look at Simon Dyson who like the two winners has won at Hilversumsche and posted some great finishes in China over the years. However it is at this venue when things all kicked off last year when lying in tied second at the cut Dyson was disqualified for a rules infringement. Things could go one of two ways - he could find things too much or he could improve on his half way position mORe
