The first round of the Turkish Airlines Open is complete and our man has already made a move in the in-play market. Read Steve's opening in-running thoughts here...
I thought I was going to have a good first day when my first glance at the Turkish Airlines Open leaderboard revealed one of my three picks, Lucas Bjerregaard, at the top following three straight birdies but it all went a bit pear-shaped after that and all three of my pickslook to have too much on their plate already.
Dan Geraghty's each-way pick, Haydn Porteous, shares the early lead with Joost Luitenand Nicolas Colsaerts but the one I like is Mike Norman's pick, Tyrell Hatton, who trails the leading trio by three strokes after a four-under-par 67 to kick off the tournament.
I was lucky enough to get a small bet matched at 11.00 at the close of play but he's a fair price at anywhere around the 10.00 mark. His form of late has been incredible and after a decent start I can't see any reason why he won't contend. He was a fair price at around the 12/1 mark before the off so I was more than happy to take just a few ticks shorter now that he sits inside the top-ten and ties after round one.
In addition to the Hatton bet, I've thrown a few pounds at Padraig Harrington at an insultingly big 34.00. The three-time major winner won the Portugal Masters this time last year so he's no back number just yet and I thought that was big enough given he trails by only a stroke after the first day's play.
The Shriners Hospital for Children Open, which I previewed here, has only just kicked off and all of my picks have been assigned an afternoon tee-time today.
