The DP World Tour stays on the Iberian Peninsula with this week’s Portugal Masters with Scot Robert Macintyre on the top of a very open betting board.
German Marcel Schneider looks a great fit for the Victoria Course in Vilamoura with a great putting game and an ability to scramble well essential to success here. Schneider ranks 3rd in Scrambling and 16th in Putting Average on the DP World Tour. Form is good with Top 25 finishes in five of his last seven starts including two Top 7 finishes.
Malaysian Gavin Green is another with an excellent short game who should feature. Green ranks 4th in Scrambling and 8th in Strokes Gained: Putting. The Qatar Masters is one of the two key tournament guides and he finished 5th there earlier in the year.
Joakim Lagergren loves this course with three Top 17 finishes in his last four starts. Comes into this off a runner-up finish. Quality putter who ranks 8th in Putting Average and 18th in Strokes Gained: Putting.
Veteran who is dreadfully out of form but whose game suits. Ranks Top 20 in Strokes Gained: Putting and Strokes Gained: Around The Green. Missed eight straight cuts so unlikely to win but value in Top 20/40 markets.
