Shane Lowry And George Coetzee Are Top Tips For The British Masters

The British Masters has proven to be a hugely popular tournament since it returned to the European Tour for the first time in seven years in 2015 and this year's edition moves to the North East as it will be held on the Colt Course at Close House Golf Club in Newcastle from Thursday...

The Market Leaders

Hosted by Lee Westwood, the tournament has attracted some star turns this week and four-time major winner Rory McIlroy is an 8/1 favourite. He returns to a tournament where he actually made his professional debut ten years ago and he is looking to end a disappointing drought that has seen him fail to win a single title in 2017 - McIlroy's only previous winless season came in 2008.

McIlroy is joined in this field by Masters winner Sergio Garcia, who has only picked up one top-five since his victory at Augusta. Garcia should enjoy this course but 10/1 is a touch short for our purposes.

Defending British Masters champion Alex Noren is next best at 16/1 (Unibet) after he won at The Grove twelve months ago, while Matthew Fitzpatrick can be backed at 22/1 and tournament host Lee Westwood is 22/1 as the 2007 winner bids to add to his 23 European Tour titles.

Additionally, Race To Dubai leader Tommy Fleetwood has withdrawn as he prepares for the birth of his first child.

The Selections

Our picks for this week come from a touch further down the market and Shane Lowry catches our attention at 28/1 (Paddy Power). A runner-up in this event in 2015, Lowry should be a nice fit for this 6,826 yard course and he looked in decent touch when securing an eighth top-30 finish of the year in Portugal, which was his first start in five weeks.

We get the impression that Lowry, who tied 7th at the Wyndham Championship on the PGA Tour prior to his outing in Portugal, is gearing up for a big push towards the end of the season and a man who is currently ranked 78th in the Race To Dubai rankings could do with a top-end finish, with only the top-60 going to the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in November.
Tip #1: Shane Lowry (each way) @ 28/1 with Paddy Power - 1/5 odds on seven places.

George Coetzee, who is ranked 57th in the Race To Dubai, is finding his feet following an inconsistent year as he followed up a tie for 3rd at the KLM Open with a tie for 7th in Portugal on Sunday.

The 31-year-old has been up and down with his form this year but it is worth noting that every time he has made the weekend he has finished in the top-fifteen in recent times, with his last nineteen starts yielding eleven top-fifteen finishes and eight missed cuts.
Tip #2: George Coetzee (each way) @ 50/1 with Ladbrokes - 1/4 odds on five places.
