Volvo Golf Championship Picks
Pick 1: Francesco Molinari E/W @ 11/1 (general) Molinari straight out of the blocks last week with his usual consistent golf over the 4 rounds. In a weaker field this week at the Volvo Golf Championships and on a Colin Montgomerie designed track, he is the warranted favourite in my book.
Pick 2: Miguel Jimenez E/W @ 22/1 (general) Little is known about the Royal Golf Club in Bahrain as it's the inaugural Volvo Golf championship event but being a design by Montgomerie, I assume it would play to his own style of golf and noone more similar in style to Monty than Jimenez, who also had a decent start to the year last week.
Pick 3: Peter Hanson E/W @ 33/1 (general) Again following the theme of players who may be suited to a Colin Montgomerie designed track, Peter Hanson is 1 of the best on the European Golf Tour from tee to green. A little over priced IMO and each way value for the Volvo Golf championships.
Pick 4: Richard Green E/w @ 45/1 OR First Round Leader @ 45/1 (general) Left hander Green was 1 of the most accurate players on tour in 2010 and tends to start tournaments very quickly before 1 bad round costs him a chance of winning. He was quick out of the blocks last week and being out early Thursday morning at the Volvo, he should get the best of the conditions.
Pick 5: Ryhs Davies E/W @ 80/1 (Bet365) Very accurate and sensible player who does well on the shorter tracks. Probably the best putter on tour when on form and if the short stick works this week, he could come in under the radar. Very cool head when in contention.
