Dunhill Links Specials bets

Only another 9 hours or so to tee off but i have a few outside guys I fancy for individual course first round leader markets, and also for potential sneaky top 20s. I think there could be an angle on a few guys who are teeing off day 1 in the ST. Andrews FRL market. First of all, given the 3 course rotation, tee times on each track will be closely grouped and it looks like all players will be battling stiff but not too overpowering winds at around 14/15mph.

Min Woo Lee is the main man to stick out for me at a big price and you can back him as high as 66/1 1/4 4 with coral/ladbrokes in the individual course FRL markets. If you refer to my outright Alfred Dunhill Links preview, you will see that he ranks 4th and 6th respectively in strokes gained around the green and SG: off the tee in my key metric rankings for ST. Andrews. This skill set is ideal for the home of golf and off the back of a t36 at the Porsche he could spring a surprise. You can back Min Woo in the top 20 market at 10.00 at time of writing

Big George Coetzee - 40s 1/5th 5 with Unibet or Boyles - in the ST. andrews FRL market, can be backed at 8.00 in the top 20 market on the exchange. Returning after injury problems, the Saffa has a t9 and t15 in his last 5 events and he held the joint record score at ST. Andrews (62) before Ross Fisher eclipsed him with a 61.

Gavin Green is also on the radar at 33/1 1/5th 5 with Unibet or Boyles. He's 6.40 the top 20. Quite simply ST. Andrews sets up perfectly for the Malaysian who seems to thrive on Thursdays.

Quite astonishlingly to me, renowned links lover Callum shinkwin - who leads the strokes gained off the tee category - and comes off the back of a near miss at the KLM Open last time out is available at 9.60 for a top 20 (at time of writing)
