Cazoo Classic and Wyndham Championship picks

We continue into August with our expert’s golf betting tips, ranging from 12/1 to 55/1, for the Cazoo Classic and Wyndham Championship

The European Tour moves to the London Club in Ash, Kent, for the Cazoo Classic, and Ryder Cup hopeful Bernd Wiesberger is clear favourite. The Austrian giant, an eight-time Tour champion, needs a big performance to retain a chance of making Padraig Harrington’s team for next month’s meeting against the United States.

The PGA Tour’s final event of the regulation season, the Wyndham Championship, takes place in North Carolina. The top 125 in the FedEx Cup standings after the Wyndham will qualify for the FedEx Cup play-offs, which start in New Jersey next week.

Norrman can leave rivals for dust in Ash

Vincent Norrman, fresh from a strong Stateside college career in which he rose to No 4 in the amateur world rankings, has made a great start to life in the professional ranks and a breakthrough victory at the London Club seems entirely feasible.

The 23-year-old Swede, blessed with effortless power, was 14th in the Scandinavian Mixed, fifth in the BMW International Open, 10th in the Cazoo Open and 11th in the ISPS HANDA World Invitational. Norrman should make short work of the four par-fives this week.

Anglophile Rasmus set to rise again

Two European Tour titles at the age of 20 is a superb effort from Rasmus Hojgaard and the Dane can threaten a hat-trick on Sunday. He has quickly shown a liking for performing on English parkland courses such as The Belfry, where he won the UK Championship last year.

Hojgaard, second in the British Masters last year and third in the English Championship, possesses the tee-to-green strength to make mincemeat of the London Club.

Shinkwin can reward followers

Callum Shinkwin is a Hertfordshire man who lives only an hour from this week’s venue. Given he has been close to his best in recent weeks, finishing fourth in the Cazoo Open and 16th in the Hero Open, there appears every chance this big-hitting 28-year-old could threaten a second Tour title.

Simpson can prove Sedgefield king

Webb Simpson carded a final round of 64 in the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational on Sunday, hitting top form just in time for one of his favourite events on the schedule – the Wyndham Championship.

Simpson made his PGA Tour breakthrough in the 2011 Wyndham at Sedgefield Country Club and he has since finished in the top three there four times. Only six players in total have beaten him in the previous four editions.

Dangerous Harman can do damage

The main danger to Simpson backers this week may be Brian Harman, who has the short-game class to reach the super-low total that is annually required for Wyndham glory

Harman, third at Sawgrass in March and fifth in the Travelers Championship in June, was sixth in the 2019 Wyndham and is playing well enough to better that effort this time.

Canadian Hughes will feel at home 

Mackenzie Hughes, a North Carolina-based Canadian, is a superb operator on and around the greens, and he has gained great confidence over the last couple of months by finishing 15th in the US Open and sixth in the Open. Hughes is equipped to threaten a second PGA Tour title on Sunday.
