Johnnie Walker Championship Odds at the The Gleneagles Hotel

rossfisherJohnnie Walker Championship Odds: The Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles celebrates its 13th anniversary at the Scottish venue this year. First played in 1999, the tournament has seen plenty over drama over the years, none more so than last year when Italian Edoardo Molinari birdied the last three holes to capture his second win on Scottish soil in 2010 and force his way into The Ryder Cup Team as one of Colin Montgomerie's Captain's picks.

He joined an impressive roll of honor which already included international golfing superstars such as England's Paul Casey and Adam Scott of Australia, along with home grown Scottish talent in the guise of Marc Warren.

The Gleneagles Hotel is a Five-Star operation that usually offers world class players, but this year, for some reason the field is weak. The Molinari brothers are playing, and Thomas Bjorn will be there too, but that's it! Mark Brown, Robert Cole, and Hennie Otto all will tee it up as well. Have you heard of them. That would make for a good law firm name Brown, Cole, and Otto has a nice ring to it. You see what I mean; this year's Johnnie Walker Championship has a weak field.

Anders Hansen

One professional looking to stay hot is Denmark's Anders Hansen who is putting together quite a tasty season so far. He currently lies sixth on the Race to Dubai thanks to three runner-up finishes in 2011 (Omega Dubai Desert Classic, Open de Espana, Saab Wales Open) and is coming off a fantastic showing at the US PGA Championship where he finished as top European and only one shot outside the eventual play-off. Look for Hansen to stay in the groove and pick up his first win of the year at this week's Johnnie Walker Championship Golf Odds.

Richie Ramsey

Another player who caught my eye, and could be worth a little play on this week, is home favorite and former US Amateur Champion Richie Ramsay. This Scot currently lies in the magic 60th place on the Race to Dubai, which currently makes him the last man eligible for the season-ending Dubai World Championship. He will no doubt be wanting to climb more comfortably inside this mark and what better place than at home as he looks to build on a 12th place finish last week.

Jeev Milkha Singh

Someone else worth a look is India's finest golfing export, Jeev Milkha Singh, and although he's been quiet in 2011, he has shown resurgence in form of late. A sixth place finish at the Nordea Masters was followed by an 11th in Ireland (having led after two rounds) and most recently last week at the Czech Open where he finished 16th.

He has a proven pedigree over the years, winning three times on The European Tour and multiple other times around the world, and could therefore be seen as a real contender this week.
