Action is taking place on both sides of the Atlantic this week as the PGA Tour season continues with the Rocket Mortgage Classic, where five of the world’s top 20 will tee it up at Detroit Golf Club.
The DP World Tour, meanwhile, heads to the UK for the first time this year for the British Masters, which takes place at The Belfry for the third successive season.
Racing & Football Outlook golf tipster Joe Champion has picked out a 246/1 each-way double across the two tournaments using bet365, where new customers can get £30 in free bets when they place a £10 bet using the button below.
246/1 Each-Way Rocket Mortgage Classic & British Masters Golf Double
The US Open-Travelers Championship fortnight has made for a weaker field on the PGA Tour this week but plenty of big names still make the trip to Michigan, including defending Rocket Mortgage champion Tony Finau.
The best bet could be Tom Kim, who finished eighth at the US Open, producing an excellent four days with his irons, and he struck them similarly well when 38th at the Travelers last week.
Kim would have been disappointed with his short-game efforts at River Highlands but he has the ability to bounce back in Detroit, where he finished seventh on his debut in 2022.
His first PGA Tour title came in the 2022 Wyndham at TPC Sedgefield which, like Detroit, is a Donald Ross design which demands accurate approaches to small greens. A super-low total will probably be needed this week and Kim’s two PGA Tour victories came at 20 and 24 under par.
The British Masters has lost some of its lustre in recent seasons but The Belfry is still an iconic DP World Tour venue and a couple of star names have decided to return to Europe for the 2022 edition of the tournament.
Justin Rose leads the betting but he may have to play second fiddle to Min Woo Lee, the Aussie who is making a mark on the PGA Tour and looks the one to beat as he too takes a step down in grade.
Lee finished a brilliant fifth at the US Open, then ninth at the Travelers, and while there is a danger that his busy schedule is about to catch up with him, he had two weeks off prior to LACC and can probably cope with one more week in action.
The Brabazon is a course he likes – he was 11th on his debut there in the 2020 UK Championship and 21st in the British Masters in his first start after a three-month break – and he returns to the UK on the verge of a career-high ranking.
Lee’s last eight DP World Tour starts excluding Majors and WGCs have yielded form figures of 3-3-8-12-4-3-2-13 and he has every chance of adding a victory to that list on Sunday afternoon.
