Impressive 2018 debutants to follow this week

<div><h2><strong>Dunhill Links Championship </strong></h2><p><strong>September 26-29<br />St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns Links </strong></p><p>Founded in 2001, the Dunhill Links Championship has become one of the European Tour's premier events. A Pro-am tournament that takes in one round at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarn Links before a cut after round three finishing with the final round at St Andrews. The courses have easier pin positions than normal and only wet or windy weather brings any defence. It is accurate to say that Carnoustie always plays two shots harder but still easier than when it hosts the Open Championship.</p><h2><strong>BETTING TIPS AND PREDICTIONS </strong></h2><p>A surprising fact this week is the Dunhill Links Championship is one tournament <strong>Rory</strong> <strong>McIlroy</strong> has never won despite being runner up on three occasions. He has been playing great golf since his disastrous opening day at the Open Championship. Winner of the FedEx play-off series in America and the $15,000,000 that went with it, he flew straight back to Crans-sur-Sierre where he lost a play-off. Last week at the BMW PGA Championship he had a poor opening round but finished impressively for a high finish.</p><p>The new Open Champion <strong>Shane</strong> <strong>Lowry</strong> is finally back to earth and concentrating on his golf after his blockbusting win in front of the adoring fans of his home nation. The triumph at Royal Portrush Golf Club was an outpouring of celebration across the Northern Ireland who hosted their first Open Championship in sixty-eight years. Last week he looked refocused at Wentworth and improved with each round. He will be sharper for that experience and now at a tournament he nearly won in 2013 and 2014 he will be fancying his chances.</p><p>My best selection this week is Austrian <strong>Bernd</strong> <strong>Wiesberger</strong> who has been in superb form all season winning the Made in Denmark and Scottish Open. A near miss at the Porsche European Open and another good week at Wentworth last set him up perfectly for a tournament he loves. Never worse than fourteenth in his last four visits to Scotland for the Dunhill Links Championship and going for the win double at both Scottish tournaments on the European Tour this year he looks an each-way must bet.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p><strong>Tyrell</strong> <strong>Hatton</strong> is a player we must mention this week after a phenomenal last three years at the Dunhill Links Championship where he has won twice and been runner up once. Having taken a couple of months break we know he is good enough this week if he is sharp enough.</p><p>American <strong>Tony</strong> <strong>Finau</strong> debuted at the Dunhill Links Championship last year with an impressive 10<sup>th</sup> place finish. A solid rather than spectacular effort last week at Wentworth in the BMW PGA Championship suggests he could put last year's experience to good use this week.</p><p>A player who won readers and followers money at the Porsche European Open was the Austrian <strong>Matthias</strong> <strong>Schwab</strong> who finished 2<sup>nd</sup> each way at (29.00). Like Herbert and Finau he too completed a top 10 finish here on debut last year. He travels to Scotland on the back of a solid tournament at Wentworth last week but three top 8 finishes in the events before tells us all we need to know.</p><p>Sweden’s <strong>Marcus</strong> <strong>Kinhult</strong> continues theme of top 10 finishes here last year. A player with a liking for links golf winning the prestigious Lytham Trophy as an amateur followed this year by the British Masters at Hillside links in Southport. Last week’s PGA Championship was another solid tournament and perfect preparation for the Scandinavian.</p><p>As they say ‘Go Big or Go Home’ and we are doing just that and have trusted all last year’s debutants to improve slightly this year. The last but certainly not the least is Italy's <strong>Andrea</strong> <strong>Pavan</strong> who has become one of the European Tour's brightest and most consistent stars. Winner of this year’s BMW International Open and last year's Czech Masters he looks one who knows how to win!</p><h2><strong>Recommended Bets </strong></h2><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Bernd Wiesberger @ 26.00 (25/1) Paddy Power </strong></em></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Shane Lowry @ 23.00 (22/1) Bet365 </strong></em></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Marcus Kinhult @ 81.00 (80/1) Paddy Power </strong></em></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Andrea Pavan @ 67.00 (66/1) Paddy Power </strong></em></a></p></div>
