Insight

Victor Perez might be the best three-ball bet in groups that leave before 10 a.m. The Frenchman’s first DP World Tour title came at St Andrews in the Dunhill Links and the tougher green tee challenge of an Open setup makes this powerful ball-striker even more of an Old Course force.

The Dundee-based Perez can represent St Andrews debutants Mackenzie Hughes and Scott Vincent (9:36), while Ashley Chesters is worth a shot at a higher price in the 7:19 contest. The precise driving of Chesters, who finished 12th at the 2015 Open at St Andrews as an amateur, may be enough to surpass bad guys Garrick Higgo and Minkyu Kim.
