McGladrey Classic 2014 tips

October 21st, 2014

It will be interesting to see how Russell Knox responds to his near miss at the Shriners event, where he finished third behind Ben Martin and Kevin Streelman. The young Scot performed well in some strong fields towards the back end of the 2014 season and his strong showing at the weekend was the reward for that improvement. He's done fairly well in his two previous visits to the McGladrey Classic, with 27th and 32nd place finishes and looks a smart each-way pick at Ladbrokes' top price of 40/1.

Charles Howell has enjoyed some excellent results in the early part of each of the last two seasons and has good reason to be confident ahead of this event, having claimed two top 10 finishes in his last four visits. Back-to-back rounds of 67 cemented his place in the top 20 at the Shriners and he's another who looks to have a good chance of placing this week. Sky Bet and Ladbrokes are both offering 50/1.

Scott Brown has made an impressive start to the new season with 12th and 10th place finishes at the two events to date, carding an aggregate score of 23-under for his eight rounds. That solid form goes together nicely with his two results at this venue, where he tied for 20th place two years ago before returning to finish fourth last time out. Ladbrokes offer just 25/1, but Bet365 stand out with their 45/1 quote.

Brendon De Jonge hasn't done too much wrong in the early weeks of the new season - his highest total in eight rounds has been 72 and he finished with three successive sub-70 scores at the Shriners. The 34-year-old Zimbabwean has a good record in four visits to Sea Island, making the cut each time and most notably finishing fourth in 2013. Sky Bet and William Hill are offering 50/1.
