Need to Know

Just like the players I’m getting ready for the Open Championship and I had a stellar week on my matchup picks last week going 4-1. I didn’t see Martin Kaymer jumping into the top 10 at the Irish Open and I sure didn’t see Graeme McDowell missing the cut. But, anyway, 80 percent isn’t too shabby, and I’ll take it. So listen up everyone, I have more info to make some coin this week. Since the Irish Open is being played for the first time at The Renaissance Club, course form is out the window. However, another links course brings that particular layout into play. This is a straightforward track that offers little resistance. There are bunkers carved into the property, trees are part of the landscape and the rough is up. The biggest test will come from Mother Nature with winds expected to act up on the coast.

Scottish Open Matchup Picks

Jorge Campillo -125 vs. Jordan Smith

A lull in his game has been worked through and I like Campillo to continue trending upward. A T7 last week was his sixth top-10 of the year. That was preceded by a T15 at Valderrama as the game has started to click after a few MCs. Campillo is currently fifth in the Race to Dubai and he’s played solid golf on links courses with a T8 at this event in 2016. His stats on the Euro circuit are strong and I like him in this matchup.

Martin Kaymer +100 vs. Tyrrell Hatton

I went against Kaymer last week and he slapped me with my only matchup loss, so I’m leaning his way this time. And there’s good reason for that. Kaymer has qualified for every major over the last 11 years and he needs to finish among the top-10 this week to claim a qualifying spot. His T9 last week is a step in the right direction, and he had a win at this event in 2009. Missing the cut the last two years is a concern, but a venue change and solid form, along with a major invite, should be enough to push him over the top.

Bernd Wiesberger +115 vs. Haotong Li

The more he plays the better he gets, that’s why I like Wiesberger in this head-to-head. He also offers a good payout, which doesn’t hurt. The Austrian is looking a lot like the player who ascended up the Euro Tour ranks prior to an injury that sidelined him for almost a year. The comeback was complete with a win at the Made in Denmark. He’s coming off a T2 at the Irish Open where his final three rounds were 66 or better. He hasn’t enjoyed much success at the Scottish Open, but he’s a fine links player and is a hot commodity right now.

Rory McIlroy -190 vs. Matt Kuchar

Back in action for the first time since a T9 at the U.S. Open, McIlroy is getting greased up for next week’s Open Championship. That doesn’t mean he’s taking this event for granted. It was a tough call for him to skip last week’s Irish Open, so you know he’s committed to playing. And he’s been one of the most consistent players all year with 11 top-10s and a pair of victories. Kuchar is no slouch and the odds are long, but I like McIlroy to refine his game ahead of Royal Portrush.

Eddie Pepperell +100 vs. Matt Wallace

Coming back from an injury that put him on the shelf the last two months, Pepperell didn’t miss a beat with a T4 at the Irish Open. He’s also a strong links player and has the edge over Wallace, who finished outside the top-50 last week and has missed the cut in the last two Scottish Opens. Grabbing Pepperell looks like the right move in this matchup.
