The Longshots Report is your guide to high-priced golfers that can earn us profits in some of the less popular markets without winning the Tournament – First Round Leader, Top 10, 20, Make Cut etc

In last week’s Longshots Report at the John Deere Classic we managed a decent result with Gotterup ($126) finishing fourth which made him a great choice for each-way, Top 10, Top 20 etc. We also managed to get another 3 out of 4 selections through to the weekend with Lipsky 24th, Buckley 30th and Hodges 43rd.

This week all golf betting interest is at the Scottish Open as the final lead-up event to next week’s British Open. It looks a great tournament with several big names playing. But, a blowout winner is absolutely possible.

You can also check out the Golf Insider’s full preview and tips for the tournament right here.

Here’s our Hit Squad:

  • Robert Macintyre @ 80 :flag-scotland:
  • Aaron Rai @ 75 :flag-england:
  • Keith Mitchell @ 90 :us:
  • Min Woo Lee @ 150 :flag-au:
  • Victor Perez @ 150 :fr:
  • Johannes Veerman @ 200 :us:

And the details:


Robert Macintyre @ 80 :flag-scotland:

The man on home soil. He’s finished 14th and 18th in his last two visits here after a MC at his first try in 2019. Was 13th last week in Ireland. Does that make him nailed on for a Top 20 this week? No, but he’s ticking a few boxes here.

$80


Aaron Rai @ 75 :flag-england:

Englishman Rai has had several high finishes over recent seasons in Ireland and Scotland so will have no problems with the conditions or the venue. More recently he’s been very solid finishing 9th last week at the Irish Open and has only missed one cut in his last 10 starts. He has won here, in 2020, albeit in a lower quality field than this year’s heat. He brings a hot putter (for him) into this and is right in it.

$75


Keith Mitchell @ 90 :us:

6th and 7th at his last two starts with a week off after each means Keith’s game should be in top condition here. He was also 19th at The Memorial after 34th at the PGA. His SG:Putting and SG:OTT have been excellent through that stretch so it wouldn’t surprise to see him high up the leaderboard and outshining some of his more fancied US compratiots.

$90


Min Woo Lee @ 150 :flag-au:

The defending champion who last year was $151 with the bookies and a huge $330 on Betfair! Retracing the 12 months since, it’s been choppy to say the least. He’s had several decent finishes in Europe and beyond – 2nd in Spain, 8th in Portugal, 4th and 16th in Dubai and 4th in Australia. Temper that with 6 Missed Cuts from 6 regular PGA Tour starts thrown in with some eye-popping results in the Majors – 14th on debut at The Masters and a rock solid 27th at the US Open. One of the younger guys in the field at just 23, Min Woo is a proper wildcard and backing him at these big prices means we get all the thrills without a lot of expectation.

$150


Victor Perez @ 150 :fr:

The Frenchman with the Spanish name actually lives in Scotland. I’m not sure what came first – his love of links golf or living in Dundee, but regardless he’s a winner of the extremely relevant Dunhill Links Championshp. He’s made 3 out of 3 cuts here at Renaissance Club with solid rather than spectacular results. He’s a winner four starts back at the Dutch Open and hasn’t missed a Cut in Europe since October last year when he missed 3 in a row.

$150


Johannes Veerman @ 200 :us:

Has struggled a little this season but his last three starts have been much better finishing 10th in Germany, 20th in Sweden and 24th last week in Ireland. Last season was a real breakout year with a win and four other Top 10s which included 8th here and 3rd in Ireland. He might be over his mid-season slump and is a big price for all the Tops, especially Top 20 ($7) or even Top USA ($76 each-way).
