Celtic Manor Wales Open

A poor field tees up in Wales this week,well not as strong as the past 3 weeks with the big guns eyeing up Bethpage next week. Ross Fisher leads the betting and rightly so, and even at 12/1 I am very tempted. Looking through the field its hard to see who is coming in with good form from last week, especially as the back nine at London GC seemed to play, or at least seem to appear by the scorecard, as a "crazy golf" course, with my man, Thomas Aiken certainly feeling the effects of the fourteenth and fifteenth on Saturday when lying just one off the lead, he ran up a triple & quadruple to miss the cut!Nonetheless some players are still continuing to show good form week by week.These are Stephen Dodd,Gary Orr, Chris Wood and Anthony Wall in particular. Of the four I would pick Wood (40/1) but I will sidestep him (costly last week sidestepping Quiros who placed and should have won!).Francesco Molinari has played very well last month and I will have to have interest in him this week.Shiv Kapur has also been playing quite well and at generous odds of 175/1 he too has to be considered. So this week its a few units on Fisher to win(think he by far bext player in field), Moinari & Kapur

Bank Balance after European Open (YTD) +137.63
