I'm not game enough to pick a winner in the Johnny Walker Classic yet. My first thoughts are with Robert Allenby, he played last week but since then didn't touch a golf club. Last week's tournament would have been good preparation for him and he's saying that he's fully fit and ready to go.
I'll hold off till the end of round 1 or round 2 and see the developments before I pick a winner. But the players who appeal to me are the following:
If you want, Robert Allenby @ $17 is good value.
Richard Green's form has been great and at $34 - he is value too. I'll play him for a top 10 finish.
Nick O'Hern, the local boy @ $21 is good value aswell.
I don't think Goosen will win.
JOHNNY WALKER CLASSIC
Top 10 finish:
Robert Allenby @ $2.40 - Self explanatory.
Nick O'Hern @ $2.75 - Perth boy - will play well in front of his home crowd. Was in pretty good form aswell in the Australian majors.
Richard Green @ $4.00 - His form so far this year has been great and I can see him finish top 10. At $4, who wouldn't take him?
Tournament head to heads
Michael Campbell over Adam Scott @ $1.90 - Adam Scott has disappointed me. I'm fading him until he does something substantial in Australia. I know he won this tournament last year, but he was a major disappointment in November/December and hasn't won a tournament on Australian soil and I'm fading him.
Richard Green over Nick Dougherty @ $2.00 - Form warrants this.
Mark Hensby over Paul Casey @ $2.10
*Post edited to put in some more information
Have a look at Simon Khan (2.50) to win his opening round 3 ball. The wind will be blowing he is the best wind player of the 3 IMO. Good course form and also usually performs well in the 1st round of tournaments.
