Castello Masters

The frustration continued in Portugal when Alex Noren's 62 on Sunday meant yet again just one shot short of a collect(albeit a small profit) as he finished in a tie for 6th.
This week sees the action move back into Spain where Sergio Garcia heads the market at 6/1 ! Having led on day one in Madrid 2 weeks ago he may feel a bit under pressure to deliver this week so with that in mind, not to mention the ludicrous odds of 6s he simply has to be opposed. I have my eye on golfers who are coming into form the past couple of weeks and who are pushing to make Dubai. Darren Clarke is one of those (currently 64th in the Race) and Fabrizio Zanotti who I have tipped quite a few times (tied 10th in Madrid and currently 59th in the Race). I have to keep the faith with him again this week, he is top quality who needs a good 4 round putting performance to really make his mark. I will also take a punt on Castano despite only being 40/1 and will have a wee interest in Thomas Bjorn, who now having resigned as chairman of the players committee, may just relish concentrating on playing good golf, he did strike some consistent form earlier in the year, and also lies 85th in the Race (€130,000 behind Ignacio Garrido in the last qualifying spot), 150/1 becomes very tempting.
