Saltman 2/1 to take Formby Hally victory

August 20th, 2009

Elliot Saltman is the 2/1 favourite with Sky Bet – the official bookmakers of the PGA EuroPro Tour – to win the Formby Hall Classic at Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa in Liverpool, despite being one shot behind leader Tim Dykes, 7/2 shot for victory.

Saltman (Aegon, pictured) was seven under ahead of the second round but posted a two over round of 74 to drop to five under. Dykes (Wrexham GC) began his round at five under and struggled initially to pounce on Saltman’s misfortune by dropping two shots through the turn but he quickly wrestled them back and a birdie at the last gave the Welshman a round of 71 for one shot lead at six under.

Adam Frayne (St Mellion) matched his opening round 70 to move to four under par and is 15/2 third favourite for the title, with Scott Henry (Cardross GC – 8/1) and Daniel Wardrop (Didsbury GC – 9/1) three shots behind Dykes at three under.

Ricky Lee (Tyneside GC – 33/1), Michiel Bothma (South Africa – 16/1) and Lee Harper (Archerfield Links – 33/1) are four shots behind Dykes at two under, one shot clear of Lloyd Saltman (Aegon – 33/1), Jack Doherty (North Gailes – 33/1), Tom Haylock (Ground Construction Ltd – 33/1), Mark Kerr (Golf Fit Ltd/Bathgate GC – 66/1), Anthony Tarchetti (Princes GC – 66/1), Tim Rice (Limerick – 66/1),  Brian McElhinney (Team Ireland – 80/1), James Mason (Rotherham GC – 100/1),Rob Leonard (Mid Herts – 100/1) and James Freeman (Worksop – 150/1).

Order of Merit leader Scott Jamieson is level after two rounds and 50/1 for victory, the same score as Daniel Gaunt (Burhill GC – 66/1), Ian Keenan (Royal Liverpool – 66/1) and Neil Walker (Rotherham GC – 80/1).
