No joy last week where two winners were not easy to find.

European Tour

Alfred Dunhill Links Championship St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns Scotland

Played over three courses with the final round back at St Andrews, luck with the weather can play its part as Kingsbarns and Carnoustie are 30 miles apart and in that area of Scotland the weather can change hugely in a few miles. Defending champion is Lucas Bjerregaard who we have selected a couple of times in recent weeks, and a return to a championship where he has won in the past, should mean he goes well again. Tyrrell Hatton won in 2016 and 2017 and was runner up last year, so he is sure to be popular, but the bookies have factored that into the price. As it is a pro-am tournament, play can often be quite slow and that certainly affects some players, so it should pay to follow players who have played in this tournament before and who are used to the three-course set up.

PGA Tour

Safeway Open Napa California

Kevin Tway triumphed in a three-way play-off last year beating Ryan Moore and Brandt Snedeker. The two previous years it was won by Brendan Steele. The field looks a little stronger than in recent years with the favourite likely to be Justin Thomas who makes his first start since the Tour Championship last month and if he returns in that form, he will take all the beating. His superiority is factored into the price and at 6/1 he looks very short. Patrick Cantlay is seen as his main challenger in the betting, and he also ended the season well, and he could be someone to keep on the right side of throughout the season. A parkland course with very little water, accuracy from the tee should enable players to score well.
