British Masters fantasy picks
This week the European Tour heads to Walton Heath where Justin Rose plays host for this year’s British Masters. Paul Dunne won the 2017 event in tremendous fashion, chipping in on the 72nd hole to record a three shot victory over Rory McIlroy.
If you’re superstitious it might be worth staying away from Rose if you would like success from this week’s event as the form for last three British Masters hosts reads T33-MC-T15, not the best if you want to be challenging for first place.
The aim in this year’s game is to pick the right players to match the RankBuster. This week’s is set at 188 so who can you fit in your team to beat it? Here are my British Masters fantasy picks.
Fantasy Rank: 3
Following a week off after winning all five of his Ryder Cup games the Italian returns to the course this week.
Molinari has missed just one cut in his last nine starts and in that run has won twice and finished inside the top 10 on three other occasions.
Fantasy Rank: 8
Pepperell enters the British Masters coming off one of the best seasons of his career which has included five tops 10 finishes and a win at the Qatar Masters.
The Englishman struggled at the Alfred Dunhill Links in tough conditions last week but three top 10 finishes in his last four starts makes it hard to ignore Pepperell.
Hao Tong Li
Fantasy Rank: 13
Tipped by many to play well this week after a great tied for 5th finish at the Dunhill Links last week. Prior to last week’s event he has finished T24 and T27.
Fantasy Rank: 22
Just like our betting tipster Keel Timmins I fancy the South African to gain some success at Walton Heath this week. Stone took five weeks after the PGA Championship where he finished 12th. Since his return he has had a pair of top ten finishes on the Sunshine Tour and at last week’s Dunhill Links.
Fantasy Rank: 30
The Spaniard was back in form last week with a T10 finish after he failed to finish at the Portugal Masters and missed the cut at KLM Open.
Before his missed cut he finished 4th at the European Masters, T18 at the Czech Masters and T24 at the Scandinavian Masters and will be hoping to back last week’s good finish up.
Fantasy Rank: 115
The Swede is a massive long shot and a major sleeper coming into the event but he has finished inside the top 15 in his last two British Masters starts, albeit on different courses.
Playing Karlsson allows you to play higher value players and should the gamble pay off you will gain valuable points on your competitors.
