The Portugal Masters has been held on the Victoria course since 2007 with Steve Webster winning its inaugural event. Spain’s Alvaro Quiros shot a final round of 68 to win the 2008 title by three shots ahead of Scotland’s Paul Lawrie. Lee Westwood and Richard Green lifted the title in 2009 and 2010 and 20-year-old Tom Lewis, won the 2011 Portugal Masters. Lewis birdied five of the last seven holes to claim his maiden title in only his third professional start. Lucas Bjerregaard is the current champion and will be defending his title this week.

Designed by Arnold Palmer the Oceanico Victoria Course is a beautifully manicured track that weighs in at 7,227-yards. The club is situated in the Golf-Mekka Vilamoura area. The terrain is flat but don’t let that put you off its a breathtaking design. Each hole has 5 teeing options and the course features are the many lakes and waterfalls as well as the strategically placed bunkers.

My tips to Win:

This week’s defending champion is Lucas Bjerregaard 18/1 – with SportingBet – who I tipped last year to win this event. Lucas took last week off after just losing out in a play-off for the European Masters tournament in Switzerland and I actually think that was a wise move after losing the play-off. I am sure the weeks practice and maybe getting here a couple of days early will put the Dane in a great position to defend his title.

Eddie Pepperell 22/1 – with PaddyPower – is on a great run of form at the moment with four Top 10 finishes from his last six starts, that includes his runner-up finish at the Scottish Open and his sixth place at The Open Championship. Eddie should come into this week in confident mood after firing a final round 65 at the weekend and I expect him to be challenging again this week.

Another player who took a week off was Matt Wallace 33/1 – with SportingBet – due to tiredness. I am sure Matt will be raring to go this week and will be looking to win his fourth title of the season this week. Matt teed it up for the first time in this event last year and just made the Top 40, but it’s a different player turning up here this week and I think he will be in the thick of it again come Sunday.

Each-way tips:

It was good to see Padriag Harrington 33/1 – with SportingBet – in the thick of it again at the weekend with final rounds of 65 and 68 at the KLM Open. I am sure Padraig will get a positive boost when arriving here this week, having won this event two years ago and defended his title with a Top 25 last year. Harrington seems to have come into a great bit of form of late, his Top 5 at the weekend followed on from his runner-up finish at the Czech Masters and he will be looking for a similar result this week.

Another past champion of this event is Alexander Levy 40/1 – with Bet365 – who started this year in great form, with a win and three other Top 10s from his first six starts of which two were fourth place finishes – no doubt trying to qualify for the Ryder Cup team was foremost in his mind at that time. Alexander then lost his way slight but seems to have gained some confidence over the last couple of weeks with two Top 20 finishes from his last three starts on the European Tour and I think he will be looking forward to being back here this week.

Outside tip:

I think this is the fourth week that I am going to stick with Phachara Khongwatmai 100/1 – with Ladbrokes – as many of you know I think this kid is a real talent and I don’t think it will be long before he wins his first European title. Phachara has had four Top 25s from his last six starts on the European Tour two of which have been Top 10 finishes. Khongwatmai played in this event last year and finished joint twelfth and shot a 66 along the way and will no doubt have some positive memories when he arrives here.
