The European Tour moves on to Hamburg this week, after the fireworks of the Open Championship, for the European Open.
The Green Eagle golf course hosts the event, and measures a healthy 7,500 yards with five par fives.
However, coming just a week after the season’s third major, the field lacks quality. We at Lap of the Odds are going to stick to the top of the betting for our selections.
South African Charl Schwartzel featured for a while at the top of the leaderboard at Birkdale before slipping back. He hits the ball a distance off the tee, and offers quality in a weak field.
Dane Thorbjorn Olesen is our second selection. He is having an impressive season, finishing tied third at the French Open, tied fourth at the Nordea Masters and tied eighth in China. This could be his chance to claim his first victory this calendar year.
Schwartzel to win at 14/1, 1 pt, Bet365
Olesen to win at 22/1, 1 pt, Bet365/Stan James
