Dwyer favourite for Prince's crown

Dwyer favourite for Prince's crown

June 8th, 2009

After a brief hiatus the PGA EuroPro Tour returns to action with back-to-back events, with the PartyPoker.com European Championship at Prince’s Golf Club in Kent first up from Tuesday 9 June.

With a number of current EuroPro Tour players gaining invites to the Challenge Tour this week in Ireland – including early Order of Merit leader Steve Surry – official bookmakers Sky Bet have made Paul Dwyer the 18/1 favourite. The Clitheroe Golf Club man claimed a joint runners-up place at the opening event at Collingtree Park and followed that by finishing in a tie for fourth spot at Faithlegg in Ireland. Simon Lilly (pictured) and Elliot Saltman joined Dwyer in second spot in the opener and they are 20/1 and 22/1 respectively, with Scott Jamieson and Steve Tiley both 25/1. Zane Scotland makes a return to the Tour he played regularly on from 2004 to 2007 and is sure to attract a lot of attention. The 26 year-old has played in six events on the 2009 European Tour so far and is a 35/1 shot to win in Kent – while Franny and Rob McGuirk playing their home course are 33/1 and 100/1 respectively.

A victory at Prince’s for any of the players in the top ten of the Order of Merit at this early stage would see them go above Surry at the top of the money list before the Tour moves onto Bovey Castle in Devon next week, so there is sure to be plenty of interest in the Order of Merit market on Sky Bet too.
