TSZ TIPS

TOMMY FLEETWOOD

  • It has been a relatively slow and uneventful 2020 for Tommy Fleetwood after long spells of inactivity but he has shown some positive signs in recent weeks having finished third in the Portugal Masters and second last week in the Scottish Open.
  • His record at Wentworth is nothing special with his best finish being 20th in his last four appearances, and while he will be frustrated at the poor putt in the play-off last weekend in Scotland to lose, he is creating plenty of birdie chances and is playing some good golf right now.

TIP: Top five finish

PATRICK REED

  • After throwing away a glorious position in the US Open three weeks ago, Patrick Reed returns to Wentworth looking to compete for the trophy one again and he will be buoyed by his fourth-place finish on his debut last year.
  • Reed has been exceptional in 2020 with eight top ten finishes in 20 events played on the PGA Tour last season and after showing he is capable on this course last year, he can go even better this time around and potentially win on Sunday

TIP: Winner

MATTHEW FITZPATRICK

  • It has been a couple of years since Matthew Fitzpatrick’s last win on the European Tour but his numerous second-place finishes suggest he is getting incredibly close to winning another event in the near future.
  • Fitzpatrick has switched between the PGA Tour and the European in recent weeks and he was somewhat unfortunate last weekend in the Scottish Open when playing in the worst of the conditions but expect Fitzpatrick to feature in the final groups come Sunday afternoon here.

TIP: Top five finish
