Lewis in strong position to claim Masters success

The great and the good of European golf are in the UK this week, with a stellar field lined-up for the British Masters at Walton Heath.

Four of Europe’s Ryder Cup stars will be in action and we’ve been looking at the best bets for the latest European Tour event – as the Race to Dubai hots up.

Tom Lewis – Outright @ 49/1

The only time the professional players get to play Walton Heath these days is for regional qualifying for the US Open.

Englishman Lewis carded rounds of 68 and 69 back in June to seal his place at the second Major of the year and that experience should help him this week.

The 27-year-old secured his second European Tour title last month, with victory in the Portugal Masters, and he looked in good form at last week’s Dunhill Links Championship.

A 280 score over the four rounds saw Lewis secure a top-10 finish, a result that has seen him edge towards the top 100 in the world rankings.

The man from Hertfordshire (21/20 to beat Ryan Fox in Game Odds) has been paired with Shane Lowry and fellow Englishman Paul Waring over the first couple of rounds.

Matt Wallace – Outright @ 32/1

Wallace was another player to shine at the venue this summer, carding rounds of 67 and 70 in order to qualify for the US Open at Shinnecock Hills.

The 28-year-old has already won three events on Tour this year and has moved into the top-60 in the world, as he looks to build on his T19 finish at the PGA Championship.

A four-under-par 68 at the Old Course on Day One, helped Wallace secure a T28 finish in the Dunhill Links – which was a fifth tournament in six where he had finished -5 or better.

Haotong Li to beat Chris Wood – Round 1 Game Odds @ 4/5

Teeing off at 13:05pm on Thursday, the trio of Haotong Li, Chris Wood and Ryan Fox will be a group to watch out for.

Fox has been ultra-consistent this year, with no missed cuts on the European Tour and five Top-20 finishes. Meanwhile, Wood has secured three Top-25 finishes in his last four events.

But it’s Chinese star Li who looks the man to watch from this three-ball, after a good showing in Scotland last week – he finished T5 but could have won it had he had made a better start on Day One, when he carded a 75.

After winning in Dubai in January, the 23-year-old looks to be getting ever closer to another Tour victory and is 30/1 to lift the trophy at Walton Heath on Sunday.

A good bet also looks like the 4/5 on offer for Li to defeat Wood in their respective first round scores.
