Open Championship – Top-10 Greatest Hits – #2

In 1998, a little known English amateur named Justin Rose very nearly pulled off one of the greatest shocks the sport has ever seen. Tomorrow we reveal our number one - any guesses for what claims our top spot?

With a run of events back in Europe and the last of the summer wine running dry at home, let’s hope the oracle can get on a Swiss roll, starting this week in Crans at the European Masters.

Favourite Watch
Rory McIlroy heads the betting at 4/1 but surely all eyes will be on Matt Fitzpatrick aiming for a hat-trick of wins here. He’s at 8/1 and comes in off a cruel second place at the Scandinavian Masters. If you haven’t seen the flag hit video, look it up!

Doc’s Top5 Best Each Way Bets

Alex Noren 25/1
Knows how to manage one of the trickiest tracks on Tour having won here twice. Divided his time between PGA and European Tours this season and had respectable showings this summer with a T11 at The Open and T12 at St Jude.  Finished well after a poor Thursday last time out at The Scandinavian and his fairways and greens stats say he is in the form to contend.  

Danny Willett 25/1
Battled hard to get his game back to its best this season and a win would not surprise. Finished his PGA Tour season with a T24 at The Northern Trust and scored an excellent T6 at The Open Championship to go with a T12 at the US Open. Winner here in 2015.

Ashun Wu 125/1
The algorithm the bookies use surely missed this one? Second after three rounds at the Scandinavian Invitation, Wu was overtaken on Sunday and finished T20 but can take many positives. T6 last year in Switzerland and T9 on his debut in 2017. Overpriced.

Andrew Johnston 66/1
Beef comes in off a fine weekend in Sweden where he shot 63, 65 to surge to a T10 finish. That is his second top-10 in three starts to go with a T4 at The Scottish Open.  A win would be a dream come true for Johnston who made public his mental health battles earlier this year, but its certainly possible given a solo third here in 2016.

Robert MacIntyre 80/1
Debut for Bob here in Crans but I’ve chosen him to fill my five (ahead of Andy Sullivan and Andrea Pavan) because I just feel he has the game for this place.  T6 at The Open was a phenomenal result for the Scot and though he missed the cut in Sweden last week, this track will suit him. Especially if that putter sings!

Long Odds Glory Shot

Scott Hend, as everyone knows, is one of my favourite players on Tour and he’s a massive 200/1 this week Plays Crans with carefree abandon and came solo second twice in 2016 and 2017.  He’ll be a joy to watch this week even if he looks like he has the weight of the world on his shoulders!
