This week the DP World Tour heads to the Renaissance Club for the Scottish Open and the PGA Tour action comes from Kentucky in the shape of the Barbasol Championship.

Racing Post golf expert Steve Palmer has picked his winners for each event and as his selections combine for a huge 545/1 double, which as always he recommends backing as an each-way bet.


545/1 Golf each-way double


Will Zalatoris and Chris Gotterup have two of the more unusual names on the golf circuit, but both are gifted ball-strikers who seem set to fill their trophy cabinets over the next few years.

The dynamic duo can be put together in a 545/1 double this week. Zalatoris has played some of the best golf of anyone in the world over the last few months, finishing sixth in the Masters, second in the US PGA Championship, fifth in the Memorial and second in the US Open.

The 25-year-old has been excelling in Major competition and should be a serious contender for this week’s Scottish Open at the Renaissance Club.

Zalatoris, a 25/1 chance, sensibly skipped the JP McManus Pro-Am on Monday and Tuesday this week, so he could stay fresh and focused for the Scottish Open.

When he arrived for his course debut last year, Zalatoris was in terrible form, having just finished last of the weekend qualifiers in the Rocket Mortgage Classic. He still managed 26th place at the Renaissance, though, so clearly enjoyed the layout.

The Texas-based swinger will not fear any breezes which come his way in Scotland and could prove the man to beat.

Zalatoris can be paired with Gotterup – a rising star who showcased his talent in the John Deere Classic last week.

Gotterup butchered TPC Deere Run last week, finishing fourth despite carrying a cold putter, and this week’s Barbasol Championship assignment should suit him even better.

Pre-tournament storms have softened a Keene Trace track which has four par-fives, so Gotterup can feast on birdies. The youngster was seventh in the Puerto Rico Open in March, 43rd in the US Open and 35th in the Travelers Championship, taking to the PGA Tour like a duck to water. The low-grade Barbasol could prove his career launchpad.
