Romero returns to New Orleans to defend his Zurich Classic crown

Andres Romero returns to New Orleans to defend his Zurich Classic crown, as a list of in-form opponents fresh from Masters standard golf attempt to steal the silverware.

Namely pre tournament favourite Kenny Perry.

The man, who came so close to a life-changing Green jacket in Augusta last week, heads the field in the betting for the Zurich crown as 12/1 favourite & looks an ‘unmissable' each-way punt, returning 3/1 for a top five finish at a ¼ odds of the 12/1.

The Kentucky born golfer, playing since the age of seven will hope to relieve the sting of last week's loss by winning in New Orleans on Sunday, but will have to fend off the advances of second favourite, Nick Watney.

The Californian's very first PGA tour victory came at this event in 2007 & priced at 14/1, may be well worth a shout.

Over the last two years, John Merrick has finished tied for seventh and 18th at the Zurich.

Look out for the name on the leader board come Sunday, as a sixth place at last week's Masters proves the form & nerve are both there, perhaps luck being the missing factor.

33/1 shot JB Holmes is playing this event for the first time in his career, giving possible indications that he may fancy his chances around the TPC Louisiana.

Runner up in Tampa and priced at 50/1 for the victory this week, Charles Howell managed to tie for second here last year. This being one of the three top-10 finishes he has accumulated in six New Orleans starts.

If Howell could manage this again this year, e/w 50/1 backers would receive a handsome return.

Tim Petrovic returns to the site where he gained his ONLY tour win - back in 2005.

After a year of struggle on course, last week's best finish on the PGA Tour - tied for eighth in the Verizon Heritage, may have given the American some confidence, and he'll be hoping to carry some of that momentum through to New Orleans this week.

Here at William Hill, there's a massive range of markets covering almost every possible betting angle - and that's before the tournament gets the betlive treatment, where the latest prices can be taken in-play after each shot!

Right now, you can back who you think may be leading at the end of each day's play - along with a market a certain Mr Perry will be backing the ‘NO' selection, our ‘Play-off to decide the winner' market.

The tournament begins on Thursday in New Orleans and although it may be considered a classic, only three of the top 20 in the world are competing!
