The focus of the European golfing world turns to the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, starting Thursday.
The flagship event of the European Tour, the PGA has attracted a field which includes four former world no. 1s, 94 European Tour winners and 12 of the top 35 ranked players.
The West Course at Wentworth is just over 7300 yards long, tree-lined with four par 5 holes (all but one on the back 9). Two of these are reachable by all golfers and two the vast majority play as lay up holes. This tends to suggest the long hitters don’t have a great advantage on these key holes, while accuracy is needed.
With this in mind, we suggest subscribers take a look at Italian golfer Francisco Molinari. He finished sixth at the Players two weeks ago in what would be widely regarded as a tougher field, and has a great record around this course, including four top 10 finishes in his last five visits. He is best priced at 18/1 with BetFred.
Another player that springs to mind Byeong Hun An. The South Korean has had three top ten finishes in the U.S. this season, including last time out, and won here in 2016. He can be played at 25/1 with Ladbrokes.
Molinari to win at 18/1, BetFred & An to win at 25/1, Ladbrokes
