The British Masters supported by Sky Sports is a popular stop over for the professional golfers on the European circuit. The tournament roots began in 1946 and was originally called the Dunlop Masters.

It started its journey as an end-of-season event that boasts a restricted field and will be played as a 72-hole tournament. It has been played across many prestigious golf courses around the United Kingdom and by the 1980s was one of the most lucrative tournaments in the European calendar.

This tournament had a brief interruption from 2009 to 2014 but returned to the calendar last year to great relief with the help of fellow professionals putting their name to the tournament. The British Masters was played at Woburn last year but will be hosted by ‘The Grove’ in 2016.

The Grove is one of the most luxurious and yet enterprising courses in the United Kingdom. It was designed by Kyle Philips and is generally regarded as one of the best courses in the vicinity of the M25.

The 7,152-yard course is considered to be a combination of modern game strategies with great traditions of British golf. The tournament will feature 120 competitors with a cut on Friday evening to identify the 40 finalists to fight over the last two days for the Championship.

The tournament roster is highlighted by Ryder Cup participant Lee Westwood who will join host Luke Donald and Olympic Champion Justin Rose from October 13th -16th.

A curtain-raiser on Wednesday that will raise funds for ‘The Golf Foundation’ will feature some of the biggest names in football, rugby and motor racing. Heroes of the sporting fraternity like Aaron Ramsey, Andriy Shevchenko, Kenny Dalglish and Teddy Sheringham will look to add glitter to the showcase event.

Westwood will have to bury the disappointment of Ryder Cup and lead the home charge in front of passionate fans. Last year saw more than 57,000 attend and cheer the British Masters on.

With more people expected this year, it is definitely going to be one of the most engaging sporting events in this part of the world. Westwood won this tournament back in 2007 when the event was played at the Belfry and finished 17th last year.

Westwood’s Ryder Cup teammate Matthew Fitzpatrick won the tournament last year, which was his maiden professional title. He’s also a big shoo-in to be near the top on the final day.

And keep an eye on the host Luke Donald who ended last year in a shared fifth position. His last three European Tour victories have come on British soil – at the 2011 and 2012 BMW PGA Championships as well as the 2011 Scottish Open.

With the additional task of bringing more people to this tournament, Donald would love to do his bit and be in around the top five when the moment of reckoning comes.

The Grove has always been one of the most enjoyable spots around London – with the golf course sharing space with a luxury five-star hotel in 300 acres of Hertfordshire. And this week it would be buzzing with action that you can ill-afford to miss!

Golf Tips For The British Masters

So on to our tips and we start with last weeks winner Tyrrell Hatton what a performance he put in at the home of golf. Finishing at -23 to tie the Dunhill Links record he won by four from Ross Fisher to take the first prize of €700,000. This win saw his world ranking soar to 33rd and will see him in the Masters next April. He is having a cracking season with six top ten’s including a runners up spot also in Scotland at The Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open.

Our second tip for the British Masters goes to our friend and benefactor Andrew ‘Beef” Johnston. Already winning @100/1 for us earlier in the year, we fancy him strongly this week to do the business once again. He finished 25th in this event last year. This year though he is a different animal. Already securing his PGA Tour card via the finals he will be keen for a strong finish to the year. We will not see so much of Beef as he splits his time between the two tours so will take the opportunity to support him once more. He will be our featured player for the upcoming Race To Dubai and can start this week with a win.

The frenchman Alexander Levy is our final tip, a recent winner of the Porsche European open he is in fine form at the moment as his T7 in the Italian Open prior to his win in Germany shows. We can forgive his blip at the Dunhill Links as the format may not of suited. He is a proven winner on the European Tour and can give it a good go at gaining his fourth success on tour. He is a best priced 50/1 with Ladbrokes @ 1 point each way.
