Volvo Champions and Farmers Insurance Open Golf



A new tournament in Bahrain this week and no previous form to go on.

Paul Casey, last week’s selection, can again be expected to go well along with the likes of Francesco Molinari,
Padraig Harrington and Richard Green.

My selection is Seung-Yul Noh at 33/1.

The 19 year old Korean won the Malaysian Open last year, edging out KJ Choi in the process.  He played well last week in Abu Dhabi eventually finishing 18th and is almost certain to win a few tournaments in 2011. Hopefully this will be the first of those.

Tiger Woods returns at the Farmers Insurance Open (formerly the Buick Invitational) and will be hoping a visit to a course on which he has an exceptional record will see a reversal in his fortunes.  He certainly can’t be dismissed but there are a number of other players lurking in the wings.

Rickie Fowler is still looking for his maiden win and that will surely come sooner rather than later.

Nick Watney and Justin Rose are others worth consideration but i’m selecting Charles Howell at 25/1.  Howell has a decent record in the event and is also in good current form.  If his putting holds up he could be bagging an overdue success.
