2011 Czech Open Picks

Pick 1: Miguel Jimenez E/W @ 18/1 (general) Course designer placed T7 here last year and T17 in 2009. Coming off the back of a decent PGA Championship, noone knows the course better and Jimenez will be looking to add another victory to his belt. Fairways and greens are key on the Prosper Resort course and that's the Spaniard's game.

Pick 2: Soren Hansen E/W @ 30/1 (general) Returned to form at the Irish Open with a 5th place finish. T35th here last year, ranks 23rd in GIR% in what has been a bad year and his tee to green game stands out for the tree lined Czech Open course. If rough is up around the undulating greens again this year, it's imperative you hit the surfaces.

Pick 3: Chris Wood E/W @ 33/1 (general) Again, noted for his length combined with accuracy and GIR% (top 30), Wood is going to have his breakthrough win soon enough. With undulating greens and a tough course this week, avoiding 3 putts rather than making birdies is the priority, which should suit Wood.

Pick 4: Jeev Milkha Singh @ 30/1 (general) A player who's been very profitable for me in the past before injuries hit. He's on the road to recovery now though and has finished 6th and 11th in his last 2 European Tour events. One of the best putters on tour when on song and although GIR% is more important this week, it's always a help.

For those who trade or would like an insight into trading golf tournaments, I'm currently running a trial golf trading advisory service. This week I'll be trading the Wyndham Championship. The service includes direct picks and trading plan etc. Click link for more details. Deadline is 6pm Wednesday. So far we are 5.5units in profit after 3 events.

Czech Open Sleeper Pick
Pick 5: Steve Webster E/W @ 80/1 (general) Reappeared on the radar a few weeks back when he hit a fabulous birdie streak over a period of holes in a particular tournament, only to fall away. Signs that his game is coming back and he's returning to a course he had a T2 on 2 years ago. Ranks 27 in GIR%.

Note: If you're betting E/W, take advantage of Bet365's offer up to £200 in free bets to use on this week's Czech Open.
