Australian PGA Championship tips

Keep scrolling down for my big odds outsider fancies...

Featured tip: Min woo Lee 35/1 ew. The home man was the longest hitter on the European tour this season, interestingly enough just ahead of compatriot Ryan Fox who is also fancied at this week's Australian PGA championship. Royal Pines looks to be a track Min Woo could do some damage on with his long hitting and his birdie making ability (11th). The Aussie is a bit hit or miss at the moment with a t6 and t3 finish sandwiched between a MC and a t63 and looks decent value in present company. MWL sits 4th in SG:ATG.

Australian PGA Championship Tip 2: Lucas Herbert 40/1 ew
Australian PGA Championship Tip 3: Ryan Fox 28/1 ew
Australian PGA Championship Tip 4: Dimi Papadatos 90/1 ew

Will be backing all 4 in Australian PGA Championship 1st round leader ew market too and it's profit if 1 just places at best prices

Australian PGA Championship 3 to trade

The 3 to trade features big priced rank outsiders on Betfair Exchange who may trade quite a bit lower in play. I generally look to lay back if possible between rounds 2 and 3 (19-54 holes) if any player is going well. Have a look at my how to guide on trading golf if you need to know more about the concept. The current market is below..

This week's Betfair Three to trade are: Jake McLeod, Travis Smyth and Nicolai Hojgaard and when the market settles we should see a 3 fig average on those.
