Golf Betting: Tips for the 2018 Scottish Open

Our tipster makes his picks for this week's precursor to the Open, with a links specialist poised for success at Gullane.

Back to win: Tyrrell Hatton – {ODDS:293240781:20/1}

Hatton struggled for form earlier in the year but has turned it around in his last two starts, following up a T6 at the US Open with a T16 at the Open de France.

The Englishman’s previous success on links courses suggests he should extend that run of good results at Gullane this week.

Hatton won the Scotland-based Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in each of the last two years. He also finished fifth at the 2016 Open, second at the Scottish Open in the same year and fourth at the Irish Open in 2014.

A links genius who loves playing in the wind, Hatton has to be one of the major contenders this week.

Each-way shout: Jorge Campillo – {ODDS:293240954:50/1}

Seven of the top eight at last year’s Scottish Open had played in the Irish Open the week before, so there’s a good chance this year’s winner will be coming off a good result at Ballyliffin.

Campillo fits the bill, having picked up a T3 in Ireland last week – his sixth top-five in 2018 so far.

The Spaniard is having a great year but just needs that first victory to top it off, and back-to-back top-10s suggests a breakthrough is imminent.

Scores should be low at Gullane this week with wet conditions expected. That suits Campillo, who trails only Andy Sullivan in total birdies on the European Tour.

Outside shot: Eddie Pepperell – {ODDS:293241040:100/1}

Pepperell disappointed with a missed cut in Ireland last week but I remain convinced that a turnaround in form is close.

This is a good opportunity for the 27-year-old, who finished joint-fourth when the Scottish Open was last held at Gullane in 2015.

Pepperell has had some decent results on links courses over the past three years, finishing second at the Irish Open in 2015, eighth at the same event a year later and seventh at last year’s Alfred Dunhill.

The Englishman is only five months removed from his first and only European Tour win at the Qatar Masters, and has the ability to triumph again in these conditions.
