Madrid Masters 2011

Luke Donald defends at the Madrid Masters this week where he probably will win. The field assembled is quite weak and there is every possibility that Donald will prevail such has been his form this year. A good weekend in Scotland last week saw him finish high up once again without winning. Whilst I believe he will win this week there is no sense in backing him at 5/1 so I have picked two who just might be a challenge.
The first of these is Nicolas Colsaerts who finished in top 5 last week also. Great form shown since his return from injury and the 20/1 on offer is too big for a player in this kind of form. He will be keen to finish the season well and make a good run at the R2D. The big hitting Belgian is sure to be on the leaderboard throughout and simply cannot be ignored.

My 2nd tip is Thomas Aiken @ 55/1. Warmer climate should suit him this week and has shown good course form in this event in the past. The kind of player who can produce top quality golf at any given time and is a real e/w chance for this in such a field. Whilst not overly consistent, the South African will have been glad to have had 4 good days in Scotland and can build on it and produce the goods to challenge for his 2nd European Title.

TIP 1: 1.5 pts e/w N.Colsaerts @ 20/1 Paddypower

TIP 2: 1 pt e/w T.Aiken @ 55/1 Paddypower
