  • We’ve narrowed down the golfers with the best chance of emerging victorious

With the new golf schedule, the PGA Championship has been moved up from August to May so the Betfred British Masters offers the final chance to tune up for the season’s second major.

This tournament has produced some excellent champions since it made its way back onto the European Tour schedule in 2015, but each year the event has moved around to different courses making this a difficult one to predict. The tournament favorite and host is Tommy Fleetwood.

Tommy Fleetwood a Solid Choice to Win British Masters

It’s actually shocking that Tommy Fleetwood hasn’t won on either the European or PGA Tours this season given that he seemingly has been in contention every week. In his last event he paired with Sergio Garcia to finish second in New Orleans, and he’s held 36 hole leads at the Arnold Palmer Invitational & Players Championship.

He’s coming in with confidence given his victory at what amounts to target practice Tuesday at the Hero Challenge. While he’ll be pulled in many directions as tournament host this week, which might cause him to lose focus, Fleetwood is a strong choice to hoist his fifth Euro Tour trophy.

RBC Heritage T-25th
The Masters T-36th
The Players Championship T-5th
Arnold Palmer Invitational T-3rd

Andy Sullivan Due for Another Victory

Andy Sullivan (+3300) racked up three wins in 2015 and somehow hasn’t won since. The affable Englishman will receive strong support this week and he’s coming in with good form, posting T-7, T-11 and T-21 finishes in his last three tourneys.

This is also an excuse for you to watch one of the best videos the European Tour has ever put out with Andy Sullivan given 500 balls to record a hole in one. Simply put, it’s worth your time.

2019 Betfred British Masters Best Value Picks

  1. Jordan Smith (+3300): In search of his second career win, Smith has been very solid in his last three tournaments (T-5, T-14, T-7).
  2. Paul Dunne (+6600): Winner of this tournament two years ago, Dunne has been good, but not great, this year with a third place showing in Australia and a 12th in the Dominican.
  3. Min Woo Lee (+8000): Australian prodigy has just one missed cut in his last six events, with four top-20’s including a fourth and tied for fifth place showing.
