2016 British Masters Betting Preview

The British Masters made a successful return from a seven year absence at Woburn Golf Club in 2015 and the tournament is next on the European Tour's agenda this Thursday. Luke Donald is the host for this week's edition, which is being held at The Grove, and we fancy Ross Fisher to get across the line following some near misses of late...

The Favourites

It is Bernd Wiesberger who heads the betting at 16/1 with Betfair and the Austrian is certainly in good form as he has racked up three successive top-sevens on European soil, while Alex Noren is just a touch further back at 18/1. Noren has been a long time favourite of ours and he got our hopes up with a strong first round last week but he trailed away badly in Scotland to ensure that his search for a third European Tour win of the year continues.

The Selections

The Grove is a course that should suit players who find greens in regulation on a regular basis and there have been few better players with irons in hand than Ross Fisher of late. The Englishman ranked 2nd for GIR stats en route to finishing runner-up at both the European Open and Alfred Dunhill Links, where his good mate Tyrrell Hatton won his first tour title. Fisher will have taken great confidence from those performances and as a relative local to The Grove, where he played a practice round a few weeks ago, he makes great appeal at 20/1 (Betfair).
Tip #1: Ross Fisher (each way) @ 20/1 with Betfair.

Meanwhile, Bradley Dredge continues to churn out results as he tied for 11th at the Alfred Dunhill Links and he is the sort of player who should enjoy this week. The Welshman, who is riding high in 25th place in the Race To Dubai, has finished runner-up at the Irish Open and Made In Denmark this year, and he could go close from a nice each-way price again.
Tip #2: Bradley Dredge (each way) @ 40/1 with Sky Bet.

Finally, this is a big week for The Grove as this is its first big tournament since it hosted the WGC American Express Championship back in 2006. Thongchai Jaidee finished in the top-ten when he visited here ten years ago and the Open de France winner is looking like a decent bet this week. The Thai star finished a respectable tied 20th when defending his European Open title and he has since earned a couple of top-tens back in Asia.
Tip #3: Thongchai Jaidee (each way) @ 40/1 with Bet 365.
