Avantha Masters and Northern Trust Open Golf



After the four-week ‘Dubai Swing’, the European Tour moves on to India for this week’s Avantha Masters.

If last year’s event is anything to go by we are in for a very close finish (seven players shared the lead going into the final round in 2010 – a Tour record).

Players fairly high on the Greens in Regulation stats are likely to fair best.

I am selecting Anthony Wall at 25/1 to win.  The 35 year old from Camberley is looking for his first win since the 2000 Alfred Dunhill Championship but has been playing consistently recently and is worth a bet here.

I am also suggesting an interest on Robert Dinwiddie (Each-Way) at 50/1 in the ‘First Round Leader’ market.
Dinwiddie has shown he is well capable of producing a low score and he has a very good early tee-time.

The Riviera Country Club at Pacific Palisades in California plays host to the Northern Trust Open and England’s Luke Donald will be expecting to do well on a course on which he has finished in the top-6 for the last three years.
I’m going to take a chance in this one with Steve Marino at 50/1.  Marino lead from the first round last week at Pebble Beach but the pressure of going for that elusive maiden win on the Tour told over the final round and he slumped to a closing 74 and a share of fourth place.

He is an attractive price to put things right on a course which should suit him.
