Tough Test In Singapore The European Golf Tour teams up with the Asian Tour this week with the lucrative Barclays Singapore Open attracting a lot of the world's top golf pros and the Sentosa course will be a serious test for the best of them. The winner of the Barclays Singapore Open is likely to be a big name and no surprise that Harraington and Mickelson dominate the betting.

The Sentosa course plays 7,300 yards long and scoring is usually not too far under par with thick rough, trees and water all playing it's part on this tricky Sentosa course. Fairways are pretty narrow and key this week will be driving and scrambling ability.

Nic's Picks man to beat: Padraig Harraington - Irishman has course form, sorted out his driving and is 1 of the top 5 scramblers in the world if not the best.

FREE expert Barclay's Singapore Open Value picks:
-1pt E/W Soren Hansen @ 25/1 (Boylesports Looking dangerous in recent weeks and finished strongly last time out. One of the best drivers/ball strikers in the game and his next win isn't far away.

-1pt E/W Charl Schwartzel @ 45/1 (Bet365) Another with course form and starting to play like we know he can

-0.75pts E/W Robert Karlsson @ 80/1 (Bet365) Karlsson has had a terrible season with injury but has had a few tournamnets now to get back in shape. His game looked good last week and this is a course he could thrive on

-0.75pts E/W Graeme Mc Dowell @ 55/1 (Sportingbet) Driver hasn't been at it's best recently but on courses like this, McDowell can excel

-1.5pts E/W Anthony Kim @ 14/1(Bet365) Kim thrives in matchplay situations and is in a group he looks favourite to get out of with Scott Strange an average player, Paul Casey only returning after a long injury lay off and a past his best Goosen

Golf Player Profiles

Please note that player attribute ratings are derived from the official PGA Tour and European Tour golf stats, and updated with a rolling average each golf betting year for precision.

Bryan Nicholson is the pioneer of the progressive form and course fit ratings for golf betting, with the associated progressive form model and course fit profiling model. Bryan is the author of the increasingly popular annual course fit profiling manual and #1 golf betting book Angles & Edges and runs the Sharp Sports Bettors Blog.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Bryan also pioneered the concept of Expected Strokes Gained Course Fit (xSGF) in golf betting. xSGF can be predicted using my model below. For prospective golf betting tips it projects ahead of time how many shots a player is expected to pick up per round on average on a particular golf course. It's weighed against a neutral golf course of the same rating. For example: Sam Horsfield at Celtic Manor vs TPC Southwind. This number will also portray ability level in terms of strokes gained total. Click "find out more" under the course fit golf betting model for info.

What is Progressive Form in Golf Betting?

Progressive form in golf betting differs from current form in that players are showing a trend in the right direction in their recent scoring. Trending form has a high predictive value in golf betting and can also catch players under the radar at an inflated price vs their true betting odds. For example - a player shows form of T40 - 24 - 24, but last week he was in the leading PGA Tour group on Sunday with Tiger Woods and had a bad round due to nerves. His finishing position may not fully capture his actual form... See more with our calculators and betting tools
