Free British Open golf picks 2009:
Course: Turnberry. Playing at 7,207 yards par 70 may seem like a long course but being a links course it won't play as long and the shorter hitters are not at as big a disadvantage as they usually are in majors. No, the key to the Turnberry course is good decision making and accurate shot making. The rough will be up as usual in majors and no different for the British Open and as per, the winds will be blowing. Top scramblers make the best picks.
-1pt E/W Lee Westwood @ 30/1places 1-8 (Boylesports, PADDYPOWER.com) Westwood on fire last week on the European golf tour and would have won if not for a bout of illness. Rory Mcilroy says he's striking it terrific and even advises a bet!
-1pt E/W Geoff Ogilvy @ 45/1 places 1-8(Boylesports, PADDYPOWER.com) Top Scrambler likes links courses and has the head to win a British Open title.
-1pt E/W Adam Scott @ 50/1 places 1-8 (Boylesports, PADDYPOWER.com) Getting back to some form after some off course problems and at 50's, The British is a good bet for his style of play off the back of a great Loch Lomond Scottish open
-1pt E/W Mike Weir @ 100/1 places 1-8(boylesports) Massive value for a guy usually up there in majors. The reason he is is he's one of the best scramblers around and the wind won'y bother him too much at turnberry. Watch out for Weir - a top 8 placing being 20/1, great bet.
