Order of Merit leader Scott Jamieson tops the markets for the 2009 Tour Championships on the PGA EuroPro Tour at De Vere Slaley Hall in Northumberland beginning on Tuesday October 27.
The Scotsman (pictured) leads the money list by less than £1,000 as the top 60 players on the Order of Merit battle it out for the £15,000 winner’s cheque and Jamieson is 10/1 joint favourite with Steve Surry (Cumberwell Park) to claim victory in the final event of the 2009 Tour.
Victory in the event would secure top spot on the Order of Merit for Jamieson, and he is 4/9 to top the money list for the 2009 season. Second spot belongs to Tom Haylock (Ground Construction Ltd) who is 14/1 to win the event and 4/1 to claim top spot on the money list – he is just ahead of third-placed Daniel Brooks (Mill Hill) who is 16/1 for victory at Slaley Hall and 7/1 for the Order of Merit title. Jamieson and Surry and Haylock and Brooks are two of five pairings priced up by Sky Bet for 54-hole match betting, all four players 5/6 in their respective matches.
Sky Bet offer two further markets for the event – first round leader and top five places in the Tour Championship. Again, Jamieson and Surry lead both markets at 14/1 and 13/8 respectively, with James Busby (The Shropshire) behind the duo at 16/1 and 9/4.
