Racing Post’s golf aficionado, Steve Palmer, has been in fine tipping form this year, backing an incredible 60/1 winner in the Genesis Invitational last month before landing a 33/1 each-way tip and hitting the winner in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

And now he’s back again with two juicy selections from this week’s events, the Valspar Championship and the Steyn Championship, which can be combined for a huge 246/1 each-way double or backed as singles.

246/1 each-way golf double

Each-way double fans are pointed towards a 246/1 chance this week, with Collin Morikawa nominated at 12/1 for the Valspar and George Coetzee looking a likely contender for the Steyn City Championship on the DP World Tour. Coetzee is a general 18/1 for the Steyn City Championship – an event being played in his homeland of South Africa.

Valspar Championship winners prediction – Colin Morikawa at 12/1

The PGA Tour’s Florida Swing concludes this week with the Valspar Championship and the weather forecast is much better than it was for the Players Championship. The so-called Sunshine State failed to justify that status at Sawgrass last week – storms forced the event into a Monday finish – but sunny, calm skies are expected at the Copperhead Course for the Valspar.

Morikawa missed the cut at Sawgrass, but a bad set of tee-times was largely to blame, and the world number two should bounce back in the Valspar.

Copperhead is a test of precision in which Morikawa should thrive. He showed when runner-up at Riviera last month that his game is in terrific shape. He won the WGC at The Concession in Florida last year and looks the man to beat this week.

Steyn City Championship winners prediction – George Coetzee at 18/1

The porky Pretorian took a month off after finishing ninth in the Ras al Khaimah Classic, then returned last week in the MyGolfLife Open. A rusty start left him just off the pace, but a final-round 64 propelled Coetzee into fourth place.

Having found his A-game in such impressive fashion on Sunday, there is every reason to believe Coetzee will flourish in a similar assignment this week.

The Pecanwood layout used for the MyGolfLife Open is almost the same length as the Steyn City venue – and they are both designed by Jack Nicklaus. Four of Coetzee’s five European Tour wins came in Africa – he loves this sort of event.
