344/1 double for Travelers Championship & BMW International Open

This week’s PGA Tour action comes in the shape of the Travelers Championship in Connecticut and we’ve got the BMW International Open to look forward to on the DP World Tour.

Racing Post golf expert Steve Palmer has picked his winners for each event and as his selections combine for a huge 344/1 double, which as always he recommends backing as an each-way bet.

344/1 Golf each-way double

An epic US Open may have left golf punters low on energy, but there are two excellent tournaments taking place this week, so a 344/1 each-way double investment is recommended.

With LIV Golf rebels currently allowed to compete on the DP World Tour, there is a decent field assembled in Germany for the BMW International Open.

Louis Oosthuizen and Sergio Garcia are among the LIV defectors who have entered the BMW, but they could both be upstaged by Jordan Smith, a consistent leaderboard dweller this season.

Smith is an underachiever, with only one DP World Tour title to his name, but there have been signs recently that he is about to turn his ball-striking brilliance into more silverware.

Smith is a greens-in-regulation machine who has twice finished runner-up on the DP World Tour this year – in the Ras al Khaimah Championship and the MyGolfLife Open.

Last time out he was tenth in the European Open in Germany – and he returns to the same country this week in fine fettle.

Smith won the 2017 European Open and he excelled in Germany again in the 2019 BMW International, finishing third.

The 22/1 about Smith can be paired with the 14/1 about Patrick Cantlay winning the Travelers Championship.

The cool Californian carded a round of 60 at the TPC River Highlands venue in 2011 – when he was still an amateur.

His last four appearances at the venue have yielded form figures of 15-15-11-13, and he has arrived this time in great nick.

Third place at the Memorial was a solid US Open warm-up, then he improved his score each day on his way to 14th place at Brookline last week.

Cantlay won the Zurich Classic pairs event alongside Xander Schauffele in April – and more glory could be coming on Sunday.
