British Masters Top 25 vs the field rankings

British Masters - The Belfry course Information....

My new book on golf betting: "ANGLES & EDGES" (click link) is now available to buy. Now Available on amazon (print and Kindle)

The Brabazon course is a tightish treelined parklands with twisty fairways. Emphasis is on tee to green and keeping the ball in play. Premium will be on iron play and proximity to the hole from approaches. I expect the scoring to be pretty low.  

 The Belfry course profile from my manual

Last year this track hosted the UK Championship in bad weather, and despite strong winds in stretches the scoring was relatively decent given the rain softening the greens. I have the surfaces down as bentgrass in my course fit profiling manual but I think they might be a cross between Poa and creeping bentgrass, I'm not sure on that one and the European tour website is an absolute bag of sh!te in this day and age re course information

Sam Horsfield is the guy I like at the top end of the market at around 20/1 each way. Taking the extra places on this type of price re Sam in this kind of field will often yield a freeroll. I don't feel there's a lot between Sam, MacIntyre and Kaymer in the battle for favouritism here.

At the other end of the scale I like the quotes as high as 200/1 EW on Robin Sciot-Siegrist. He is showing progressive form now of t22, t12 on the Canary Islands swing and has a lot of potential which is already proven at Challenge Tour level. He won on a similar style track at Galgorm Castle. A fast start for Siegrist here wouldn't be a surprise and he is 125/1 ew in the 1st round leader market or 7/1 top 20 if you prefer the sub markets. He actually opened 250 ew 1/5th 10 places with the this week's host  - Betfred.......

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 annual course fit profiling manual and #1 golf betting book Angles & Edges.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Bryan 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.

Input up to date player and course data (from the upcoming course fit manual 2024) into this interactive golf betting model. My course fit profiling model for golf betting tips uses highly evolved golf nuance and betting intuition, precise parameters and inputs based on Bayesian analysis, plus years of empirical evidence through observing, betting and documenting golf and stats.

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.
