Lucas Bjerregaard is one of three selections in Niall Lyons' Perth International preview.
Louis Oosthuizen arrives here at the top of the betting market however he is a weak favourite in my eyes considering he hasn't teed it up here until now. Of course he could take to the course but it would be risky to invest in the former Open Champion with that in mind. Marcus Fraser tees it up here on the back of a win last week. He can be expected to go well considering the course should suit his tidy game. However, for somebody who has won once in the last six years quotes around 33/1 are of little interest. The next few in the market appeal a fair bit though.
We'll start with Lucas Bjerregaard who had a decent week last week with a top 25 finish and a return to a course with slightly wider fairways should suit the Dane. He only hit 57% of fairways last week, but managed to position himself 2nd in the GIR tally at close to 80%. That bodes well for this where primarily it is a second shot golf course. Finishing one shot off the pace down a tree lined Italian course last Summer, and a runner up sot in Hong Kong demonstrates that these type of courses suit Lucas and this is where we should act. Considering his price of 30/1, this is one of the best bets I've seen thus far in 2016. Hopefully the putter gets hot as we will need it to. Mid teens looks like the number this week and with a bit of luck with the draw (wind likely) the price could look huge come Sunday morning.
