Another in that group, though, is THONGCHAI JAIDEE from Thailand, runner-up last year. He is as low as 25/1 in some places but can be backed at 33/1. He clearly likes the course and his form this season suggests that this is a much improved golfer – the stat that leaps out is his putting (averaging 28.03 putts per round compared to 29.75 last year). He was second in the PGA at Wentworth and was also in the top ten last week, and if the heat does play a part, it won’t affect Jaidee, who began his career in the humidity of the Asian Tour.
Another player who catches the eye is England’s ANDY SULLIVAN (50/1), who is having the season of his life. Two wins, a fourth in Dubai and sixth in the Irish Open, he then dabbled in the States and briefly led the prestigious Memorial (including a brilliant second round 64) before finishing a very creditable 13th. This is a golfer in form – he made the top 30 here last year but should do much better this time around.
