Angus Loughran’s Golf Tips

Live on Sky Sports 4: Thu 07:00 & 20:00 Angus Loughran previews this week’s RBC Heritage and Malaysian Open tournaments

Five players have made the journey from Augusta to Kuala Lumpur and on the face of it that should be a good enough reason to oppose them, but it may be a dangerous game given that all have some appeal.

Although Lee Westwood hasn’t been here for seven years he is still market leader at 10/1 while Louis Oosthuizen, who played far better than his 25th place at Augusta suggests, might not be as badly affected by the travel as a few others and I like his chances this week at a general 14/1.

Alternatively, David Horsey did not play at the Masters but has shown enough decent early season form to suggest 40/1 is a decent price in Malaysia this week.

The PGA Tour hosts the Heritage at Hilton Head and has a strong field, headed by 20-year-old Jordan Speith who impressed so many with his maturity at Augusta on Sunday when joint runner-up in his first Masters.

He is a 16/1 market leader this week, ahead of in-form Matt Kuchar (18/1), the most consistent player on the tour over last month.

Luke Donald has often played well here and should give backers a decent run for thir money at 20/1, the same price as 2010 winner Jim Furyk.

Of the bigger prices Brandt Snedeker, who beat Donald in a play-off here three years ago looks over the odds at 33/1 while Kevin Streelman is a player whom quietly just gets on with things and appears overpriced at 55/1.

The Masters was a great result for the bookies as punters didn’t latch on to 2012 winner Bubba Watson but this second Green Jacket was gained with a very controlled back nine from a player who is a breath of fresh air to the modern game. Youngster Speith and 50-year-old Miguel Angel Jiminez showed it really can be a game for all ages.

Good luck
