The Scottish Open begins on Thursday at The Renaissance Club and Jamie Worsley has already given us his comprehensive Scottish Open Betting Tips. He's avoiding the first-round leader market this week and has instead selected a trio of Europeans, who can put their knowledge of this brand of golf to use to secure themselves a top-20 finish. So without further ado, here is Jamie's Scottish Open Prop Bet Tips. 

Scottish Open Betting Tips

  • 2 pts Victor Perez Top 20 @ 18/5
  • 2 pts Matt Wallace  Top 20 @ 18/5
  • 2 pts Bernd Wiesberger  Top 20 @ 4/1

2 pts Victor Perez Top 20 @ 18/5

First up is Frenchman, Victor Perez. The Dundee resident has plenty of positive experience on similar courses and having recorded some impressive finishes on the PGA Tour lately, he looks primed for a good showing in Scotland.

Perez started his rookie PGA Tour season well, hitting the top-20 on three occasions over his first seven starts, including finishing 3rd in the Puerto Rico Open. He hit a bit of a flat spot after a 17th-place finish in the Houston Open, though bounced-back with his second top-5 of the season, finishing 3rd in the Canadian Open; before backing it up with a 12th-place finish in the Memorial Tournament on his following start.

He has looked reasonably solid throughout his bag, though as you’d expect has excelled with his ball-striking, especially the irons. He ranks 40th in approach and is also 45th in that 175-200yd range that should be important this week.

Perez has made four of five cuts here, recording a best of 14th in 2020. As a former winner of the Alfred Dunhill Links, his solid record at The Renaissance Club should come as no surprise and also possessing victories in the KLM Open and Abu Dhabi Championship on similarly “linksy” setups, he has plenty in his favour to finish inside the top-20 this week.

2 pts Matt Wallace  Top 20 @ 18/5

After finding some form with the driver Matt Wallace has finally started to put a consistent run of form together on the PGA Tour, and with a C.V full of encouraging efforts on link/links-like courses, I’m confident he can carry that form over into this week.

Wallace missed four of his first eight cuts on tour this season and failed to hit the top-30. He put that right when finishing 17th in the Valspar Championship and barring the odd blip, he’s maintained a good level of form since.

His best finish of the season came six starts ago when 4th in the CJ CUP Byron Nelson and he’s recorded two further top-20s subsequently, finishing 20th in the Myrtle Beach Classic and he was 15th in the KLM Open on the DP World Tour two starts ago; as well as possessing a solid 43rd in the PGA Championship.

He ranks 30th in this field tee-to-green over his last 20 rounds and prior to his last start, he had gained strokes off-the-tee in four of his previous five starts. The irons have been pretty strong over the courses of the season, ranking 66th in approach and he’s been particularly impressive with his long irons, ranking 22nd in proximity from 175-200 yards.

Wallace has made four of five cuts at The Renaissance Club and finished inside the top-30 on each of his first three visits, going best when 14th in 2019. With runner-up finishes at Hillside and Fairnont St Andrews; several top-5s in the KLM Open; and top-10’s in the Dunhill Links and Qatar Masters, he ticks many boxes in terms of comp form and I’d be surprised if he didn’t give a good showing of himself this week.

2 pts Bernd Wiesberger  Top 20 @ 4/1

Bernd Wiesberger has looked right at home since returning to the DPWT, consistently impressing with his tee-to-green performances. As the inaugural winner at The Renaissance Club in 2019, he should be relishing a return to the course this week.

The Austrian has missed just one cut in 12 starts on tour this season and recorded nine top-25 finishes; the best of which came when 2nd in the European Open.

He ranks 5th on the DPWT tee-to-green and 10th in this field when combined with the players of the PGA Tour. His approach play has been especially promising, as he ranks 7th of this week’s players in 2024 . However, the putter has continued to frustrate and that is what has ultimately stopped him from turning these top-25s into more top-5s and ultimately, a victory.

Wiesberger made the cut in each of the next two editions of the Scottish Open following his victory in 2019. He’s also twice finished runner-up in the Irish Open, most recently at Lahinch in 2019; has a 3rd-place finish in Qatar; two top-7’s in the Dunhill Links; and even ticks the American form box, having finishing 4th in the 2021 RSM Classic. There’s little not to like this week and he probably won’t need to find a great deal on the greens to secure a top-20 finish if his tee-to-green game remains strong.
