Betfred British Masters: Preview, betting tips & how to watch

Betfred British Masters Preview 2022

It’s a big one on the DP World Tour this week, as the players head to the Belfry for the Betfred British Masters.

One of the most anticipated events on the calendar, the British Masters always attracts some of the best names from Europe, and showcases one of the premier golf destinations in the UK. Last year, it was Richard Bland who took home the title, with past winners including Seve Ballesteros and Sir Nick Faldo.

This time around, it is Danny Willett’s turn to host the event, and the former Masters champion will be hoping for a strong showing at his event. In recent years, the event has travelled around England, and this is the second consecutive year it’s been held at the Belfry, just north of Birmingham.

While golf coverage up to this point in the year is dominated largely by events in the USA, expect a lot of attention to turn to the DP World Tour this week.

With that being said, let’s take a look at all the details you need to know before the golf commences...
