The European Tour stays in the Middle East this week, with the Doha Golf Club hosting the Qatar Masters.
This event has suffered from a change in its timing, resulting in many of the elite of European golf concentrating on events Stateside as the Masters draws near.
This means Thomas Pieters is the favourite for this week’s tournament. And as talented as the Belgian powerhouse is, he’s not consistent enough to take on a single digit price.
Our first selection is Tom Lewis. The young Englishman is playing very well, with three top ten finishes in his last six starts. He also won twice last year, so shouldn’t freeze if the situation arises. But more importantly, he will be keen to get into the top 50 world rankings before the Masters cutoff date. He is currently ranked 58th, and a good performance should suffice.
Our each way selection is a little out of left field, but we’re getting a price to compensate! Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano finished tied fourth here last year, is playing reasonably well and is priced well in the triple digit territory. We’ll take a punt.
Lewis to win, 1 pt, at 20/1, widely available
Fernandez-Castano 0.5 pts each way at 250/1, 1/5 the odds for the first six places
