It's the European Tour's flagship event this week at the stunning Harry Colt West course on the Wentworth Estate, not many people know that Colt also designed the East Course, which is a course I really enjoy playing. Ernie Els made some changes to the West course between 2005 – 2010, which were not received with universal appraisal.

The clubhouse was originally known as Wentworth house in the 19th century and was the home to the brother-in-law of the Duke of Wellington, it was then sold to a Spanish exile by the name of Count Ramon Cabrera in 1850. After his death his wife purchased some of the surrounding land to form what become known as the Wentworth Estate.

In 1912 builder WG Tarrant acquired the developing rights for the Estate and based on his St Georges Hill model commissioned Harry Colt to design a course around the Wentworth house. Tarrant then developed the large houses that you see on the estate today. And in an echo of today’s financial climate, development of Wentworth Estate ground to a halt due to the Depression of the late 1920s.

In 1931 the banks asked for repayment of a large debenture that had been taken out, Surprise Surprise Tarrant was forced to declare bankruptcy. The ownership of Wentworth Estates Ltd came under the control of Sir Lindsay Parkinson & Co Ltd.

My tips to win:

The BMW PGA Championship has not really been a happy hunting ground for Henrik Stenson 14/1 – with SportingBet – who only has a couple of Top 10 finishes here and there were several years that the Swede didn’t even compete in the event. Henrik enjoyed the desert swing of the European Tour but has missed four cuts on the spin on the PGA Tour but a solid Players Championship should see Stenson back in confident mood and I feel he will do well here this week.

Which is in contrast to Francesco Molinari 20/1 – with Bwin – who does have a very good record over the Wentworth West course and last year was the first time he had finished outside the Top 10 since 2012. Francesco comes into this week on the back of three straight Top 25 finishes on the PGA Tour culminating in his sixth place finish at The Players Championship and I believe we will see him in the thick of it again here at the weekend.

Martin Kaymer 33/1 – with Bet365 – has finished regularly inside Top 20 here since turning professional with his highest finish coming last year when he took seventh place and although he has not really challenge to win I think that may just change this week. Kaymer has had five starts on the European Tour this year and has only finished outside the Top 25 once and has five Top 25 finishes from seven starts on the PGA Tour, so his game is in good shape.

My each-way tip:

This weeks defending champion is Chris Wood 40/1 – with Bet365 – who had a Top 5 finish the year before and has another Top 10 finish here. Chris’s last start see him finish in the Top 5 at the Volvo China Open and coming back here he should be in buoyant mood this week.

Luke Donald 50/1 – with Bet365 – is another player who has an incredible record over the West course with two wins, a runner up and two other Top 10s. Luke‘s game has suffered over the last few years but he always seems to play well on the courses he has challenged, feels comfortable on and suits his eye, I expect to see him challenging here again this week.

My outside tip:

Fabrizio Zanotti 80/1 – with Ladbrokes – has only been outside the Top 25 once in the last four years and has a very steady record of finishing inside the Top 25 and comes into this week with a win and a Top 5 in his last four starts. For an even bigger outside option there is Nicolas Colsaerts 200/1 – with BoyleSport – who is not only a winner on the European Tour but has finished inside the Top 25 three of his last four starts here.

As always good luck
