Anirban Lahiri Is An Outside Pick For The CIMB Classic

The PGA Tour heads to Malaysia for the first of three tournaments on the 'Asian swing' this week as the CIMB Classic takes centre stage and it should be a fantastic tournament at the beautiful Kuala Lumpur Country Club...

The Head Of The Market

The West Course is host of the CIMB for a fifth year in a row and it is a venue that the FedEx Cup winner, Justin Thomas, knows well as the two-time defending champion is bidding to make it three in a row at this parkland venue. The World No. 4 is a 9/2 favourite but that price is a bit short and we prefer to look elsewhere for some each-way value...

Last year's runner-up, Hideki Matsuyama, is next best at 9/1 but he hasn't been in great form since the US PGA Championship.

Meanwhile, Paul Casey is in electric form as he has racked up thirteen top-20 finishes in seventeen starts since February but the 12/1 on offer is very short for a player who hasn't won a PGA Tour title since 2009.

The Selections

Instead, we prefer to focus on players with course form and Anirban Lahiri is very nicely priced at 30/1 with Betfred. The Indian star picked up a respectable 1.5 points for the beleaguered International Team during the recent Presidents Cup and that came after a decent top-ten effort at the BMW Championship in his last stroke-play start.

Lahiri loves playing the West Course as he also starred at the European Tour's Malaysian Open when it was held at the same venue, winning the title in 2015. Lahiri finished third at the CIMB Classic twelve months ago, meaning he has secured three top-tens while making the weekend in each of his last five appearances at this venue.
Tip #1: Anirban Lahiri (each way) @ 30/1 with Betfred.

Rafa Cabrera-Bello also enjoys playing this course as he has finished in the top-25 in four of his six visits, including three top-tens. The Scottish Open champion has racked up five top-tens worldwide during 2017 and his win in Scotland will have been massive for his confidence as it ended his well-documented title drought.
Tip #2: Rafa Cabrera-Bello (each way) @ 40/1 with Bet 365.

James Hahn has gone 6th-9th in his two visits to Kuala Lumpur and the American is looking to add to his three top-ten finishes for the year. A tie for 13th at the US PGA Championship was an impressive effort and he is looking to add another PGA Tour title to his CV after winning tournaments in each of the previous two years.
Tip #3: James Hahn (each way) @ 55/1 with

Finally, Scott Hend is our outside bet after finishing in the top-20 in each of his past four appearances at the Kuala Lumpur Country Club and he did finish runner-up at the European Masters recently. Successive missed cut in Great Britain can be overlooked as he will relish the chance to get back on a course that clearly suits.
Tip #4: Scott Hend (each way) @ 90/1 with Betfred.
