Stick With Shane Lowry At The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship

The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship remains one of the European Tour's major draws for both spectators and players alike, and Rory McIlroy heads into the latest edition as the bookmakers' favourite for a first victory of what has been a frustrating campaign...

Stick With Lowry

McIlroy showed good form when chasing Paul Dunne home at the British Masters last week and he is 6/1 for a first Alfred Dunhill Links title after previously finishing runner-up three times at an event that features three rounds at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns before the 54-hole cut and a final round on The Old Course.

McIlroy's price is plenty short enough and we prefer to focus on a player who could thrive if the forecast of windy, tough conditions on Thursday are to be believed. Shane Lowry has the credentials to go very well here and he will be boosted by his seventh place effort at The British Masters.

We backed Lowry last week and we are going to stick with him as he has finished in the top-20 in each of his past four appearances in this tournament, including a 3rd place effort in 2013, and we fancy a big win is just around the corner for a player who is showing encouraging form with the irons and putter in hand.
Tip #1: Shane Lowry (each way) @ 20/1 with Coral - 1/5 odds on seven places.

The Best of The Rest

The Race To Dubai leader, Tommy Fleetwood, has finished in the top-fifteen in five of his six visits to the Alfred Dunhill Links, including a runner-up finish in 2014, although the birth of his first child last week ensures tiredness might be a factor this time!

Tyrrell Hatton (22/1) is the defending champion so there is plenty of pressure on him and we fancy someone like Branden Grace could sneak under the radar. Another former champion, the 2012 winner is a fine links exponent and he is one of the few international players, along with Louis Oosthuizen, who could hold their head high after last week's Presidents Cup mauling at the hands of the USA.

Grace has taken on some tough assignments in the States of late but let's not forget that he finished in the top-fifteen at the Scottish Open before tying for 6th at The Open Championship a few months ago.
Tip #2: Branden Grace (each way) @ 25/1 with Paddy Power - 1/5 odds on seven places.

Another South African caught our attention this week as Richard Sterne has finished 6th and 2nd in his past two appearances at the Alfred Dunhill Links and he arrives in decent tough after missing just one cut in seven outings, yielding four top-20 finishes, including a decent showing at the Scottish Open.

Sterne is currently 67th in the Race To Dubai and a big performance this week could propel him into the top-60 and a step a closer to Dubai.
Tip #3: Richard Sterne (each way) @ 55/1 with Bet 365 - 1/4 odds on five places.

Marc Warren is up to 87th in the Race To Dubai standings following a couple of fine efforts that have seen him finish runner-up in Portugal prior to a top-fifteen at the British Masters. The Scot always tends to play well on home soil and he is showing signs that he could sign off what had previously been a disappointing years with a flourish.
Tip #4: Marc Warren (each way) @ 66/1 with Coral - 1/5 odds on seven places.
