The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is the last of this year’s events in the UK and is played over three courses before ending at St Andrews on Sunday.
Rory McIlroy will be out to make some amends for his disappointment in The Open at the same venue earlier this year but at 4/1 he is too short to consider given the possibility of bad weather.
With three courses and the chance of wind and rain to contend with in this pro-am event, we’ve looked for some bigger odds for our Alfred Dunhill Links Championship betting tips and have come up with three selections.
SHANE LOWRY @ 11/1
Admittedly Lowry is amongst the favourites but his price in double figures offers more appeal than that of McIlroy.
Lowry had to settle for 21st place at The Open but back-to-back eagles during his third round highlighted what he is capable of on a links course, not that we didn’t know it already from the 2019 Open champion.
Having already won the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth earlier this month, the Irishman should be full of confidence and having finished tied for fourth in this event last year, it would be a surprise if he is not in contention again on Sunday.
VICTOR PEREZ @ 30/1
Perez may be French but now lives in Dundee so is effectively on home soil on Scotland’s east coast this week.
He made his breakthrough in this event in 2019 when he used his local links knowledge to win his maiden European Tour title.
He returned to the winners’ circle in May this year by winning the Dutch Open and was tied for third at the European Open in June.
A dip in form ended with another third place at the Italian Open two weeks ago and Dundee’s favourite Frenchman will have plenty of support this week.
THORBJORN OLESEN @ 60/1
Olesen has already triumphed on UK soil this year by winning the British Masters at The Belfry in May.
Since then he has had a top-10 finish at the Irish Open and was 11th at the English Open, while he finished in the top 20 in both Italy and France in the last fortnight.
The Dane also has an impressive record in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, having been runner-up in 2012 and then claiming the title in 2015 when he held off the challenge of Brooks Koepka to win by two shots.
Recent form and course history suggest Olesen is a decent each-way shout for our Alfred Dunhill Links Championship betting tips.
