Shane Lowry Offers Value In The Latest BMW PGA Championship Betting

Fresh from successfully backing Adrian Otaegui to win the inaugural Belgian Knockout at 33/1 last week, our golf tipster is back with three tips for this week's flagship event on the European Tour. Rory McIlroy is the bookmakers' favourite at Wentworth but there could be some value to be found in the latest BMW PGA Championship odds...

Nicolas Colsaerts (each way) @ 110 / 1  

Rory McIlroy Odds

McIlroy is returning to Wentworth for the first time since 2015 and the Northern Irishman has a mixed record in this event as his last four visits have returned three missed cuts and one win (2014).

McIlroy's price is a touch short for us as he comes up against a relatively strong European Tour field that includes defending champion Alex Noren (14/1), the 2009 winner Paul Casey (14/1) and Tommy Fleetwood (14/1).

We backed Branden Grace each-way prior to his tie for 3rd on the PGA Tour last week and he is available at 16/1 after finishing in the top-ten at Wentworth twelve months ago.

Meanwhile, we backed Francesco Molinari each-way for the BMW PGA Championship in 2017 and he duly finished runner-up to enhance a fine record at Wentworth, where he has now gone 7-9-7-5-55-2 in his last six appearances.

BMW PGA Championship Tips

Our first selection this year is Shane Lowry at 33/1 with Coral (paying each-way terms on 7 places). The Irishman loves playing the West Course at Wentworth as he has secured five top-12 finishes in seven visits, including four top-six efforts.

Lowry was runner-up in the season-ending Dubai World Championship back in November and he has played consistently, if unspectacularly, on the PGA Tour this year. A first start on the European Tour for the calendar year could see him kick-start this campaign.

Lowry's Irish compatriot Paul Dunne is very appealing at 40/1 with Ladbrokes (paying each-way terms on 5 places). The 2017 British Masters tends to enjoy playing on these shores and his short game looks ideally suited to Wentworth, where he finished a respectable 30th on debut twelve months ago.

Dunne has racked up four top-10s in his past five starts worldwide and he looks great value here.

Finally, a long shot for the tournament is Nicolas Colsaerts as he has finished in the top-25 in each of his last three outings on the West Course, including a tie for 3rd in 2017. A two-time winner on the European Tour, Colsaerts has a decent record on British soil and he showed a timely return to form when finishing 7th at the Belgian Knockout last week. Colsaerts is a huge 110/1 with Betfred (each-way terms on 6 places).
