World Super 6 Perth betting: Each-way tips
Kurt Kitayama is making his tournament debut at the the World Super 6 Perth but is a player that you should consider despite his current slump in form.
He’s missed two cuts in his last four starts and in the other two was in the wrong half of the leaderboard.
But I hear the American, who won twice in two months last year, is close to making the changes click, so I’ll be taking a punt at 80/1.
A player that put together a tidy run of form is Adilson Da Silva, a player that I monitored closely in my Fantasy Golf picks towards the back end of 2018.
He hasn’t played a European Tour event since the Alfred Dunhill Championship in December where he finished in a tie for 34th.
The Brazilian is a fantastic driver of the golf ball and has averaged better than 75% driving accuracy for the past six years. If his iron and approach play is up to scratch then 100/1 is tempting.
That’s who Matthew believes might make an each-way charge. But who does he reckon will top the leaderboard? Turn the page to find out…
