Martin Kaymer has a great chance of landing a second French Open title following his dramatic win in 2009 and as he has also played really well on other occasions at Le Golf National, the German looks a terrific each-way bet at 14/1 with bet365 this week; I fully expect him to be in contention at this fabulous, iconic location which will be the venue for the 2018 Ryder Cup.
Graeme McDowell enjoyed a fabulous start to 2013 but things have not gone well for the Northern Irishman in the last month or so and he will be looking forward to getting back on track as he continues his preparation for the Open Championship at Muirfield.
At 50/1 via BetVictor, Jamie Donaldson looks the best of the bigger-priced players especially after he played some decent stuff in the Irish Open last week, where he was defending champion.
Over the Atlantic, Phil Mickleson heads the market at 16/1 (Sportingbet) in the Greeenbrier Classic but over the years this event has produced more shocks than most on the PGA Tour and has become one of the season’s harder puzzles to solve.
Course form is vital and Scott Stallings won a three-way play-off here in 2011, beating last week’s winner Billy Haas and Bob Estes. He was 150/1 back then but despite missing the cut last time out has shown enough form this year to suggest that Coral’s 40/1 is more than fair.
Gary Woodland was only just behind the leading trio here two years ago and has a perfect game for this course so at 50/1 with bet365 he’s one to consider on each-way terms.
