Simpson is in great shape at the moment and should push the tournament fav, Luke Donald, all the way. Donald is 8/1 with Coral to win and he and Simpson have been paired together for the first two days as they slog it out for the lead on the PGA money list – the fight could draw out the best in both players. Simpson is 6/5 with Stan James to beat Donald in a match bet.
Robert Garrigus, the defending champion, is 66/1 with Ladbrokes but his form is nothing to get excited about but Spencer Levin is a more interesting proposition – Levin has shot a couple of top ten finishes lately and bet365 make him 30/1 to win the event he came 4th in last year.
Justin Rose has had a few weeks off and he comes back as a 16/1 chance with Betdaq to build on his BMW Championships win.
