With the Golf Spiv still AWOL it looks like it's up to Golfhacker to highlight the ones to watch at the BMW Masters in China. For those of you who read the last article...well, you'll know that he tipped Russell Knox to fight back and suggested that Danny Willett could come back despite his 100/1 odds on Friday after Day Two of the WGC HSBC Champions.
Well with that in mind...here are Golfhacker's six to watch out for at the BMW Masters this week.
1. Danny Willett. 25/1 (Bet365)
It was a sensational comeback at the weekend, shooting a -10 on the last day to finish T-3. One thing is for sure...this boy has talent, desire and determination. Expect more of the same. Having a great season and has Rory McIlroy firmly in his sights. A win here (or 25th or better) and he could overtake Rory as European Number 1. How's that for incentive?
2. Branden Grace. 18/1 (Bet365)
The South African had been impressive this season. 2 wins on the European Tour, 2 top5's in the majors (T-4 at US open and 3rd at PGA). 6th on the Race to Dubai and will be looking to improve on his T-5 at the weekend. This guy is in good form and looks strong. Came T-16th here last year...but now a much better player.
3. Matthew Fitzpatrick. 28/1 (Bet365)
We are all running out of superlatives to describe this kid. So lets settle with 'awesome'. Winner of the British Masters and consistently knocking on The door to win others. One of the most consistent players on Tour. T-7 last weekend and looks fearless with every shot.
4. Ross Fisher 50/1 (Bet365)
Yes, you read that right. Ross fisher. The Englishman has been far from his former best but there are flashes of brilliance. A tipsters nightmare is predicting how well he'll do as he is unpredictable. But, don't forget that he was in the play off to win this event last year...he likes the course and following his T-3 at the weekend...he could surprise.
5. Richie Ramsey. 175/1 (Bet365)
Some people like big odds. If that's you then take a look at Richie Ramsey. He won the Trophee Hassan II and has 3 top 10's including a 7th place at the Volvo China open. Can a Scotsman make it 2 wins on the bounce for Scotland? Who knows but an interesting Each Way bet all the same.
6. Hao-Tong Li. 66/1 (Ladbrokes)
Massively impressed by the young Chinese player at the weekend. To finish above the likes of Stenson, McIlroy etc is massive for this player. He obviously responded well to the pressure of being the home player. Well, can he do it again? Was it a fluke...or could he be the real deal once again.
