TSZ TIPS

SHANE LOWRY

  • Shane Lowry is a consistent performer at Wentworth with eight top 15 finishes in his last ten tournaments and that sort of record is difficult to overlook with the Irishman surely set to go close once again this week.
  • Lowry has produced some of his best golf in the latter part of the year and with a spot in the Ryder Cup still there for the taking, the 34-year-old can strength his cause and even cement his place on the European team by taking out this title.

TIP: Winner e/w (16/1)

EDOARDO MOLINARI

  • Edoardo Molinari produced a good performance at last week’s Italian Open as he finished tied for fifth, his highest finish on the European Tour this season and he will be looking to build on that.
  • The Italian has been hitting the ball well of late and that will be important on a course where accuracy is key. The three-time European Tour winner appears to be trending in the right direction and he could go close to recording win number four here.

TIP: Winner e/w (125/1)

HENRIK STENSON

  • Henrik Stenson is another player hoping to earn a spot in the European team for the Ryder Cup and the level of his performances have notably gone up over the last couple of months but he needs to finish the season strongly.
  • The Swede recorded another top 15 finish – his third in succession – at last week’s Italian Open and while he didn’t hit the heights of his recent efforts, Stenson showed that he can manage to finish in the higher reaches of the leaderboard at Wentworth.

TIP: Top 20 finish (2/1)
