The European golfing circuit moves to the Netherlands this week, with The Dutch course hosting the 98th edition of the KLM Open.
The course is relatively new, having opened in 2011, and has a links feel to it with rolling fairways and gorse mounds.
Joost Luiten returns to defend the title he won in spectacular fashion last year in front of his home fans.
Luiten heads up the betting for this year’s tournament, but we at Lap of the Odds don’t feel he is in the same level of form as last year.
Instead we’ll look a little further down the betting list. Julian Suri carried our cash a few weeks ago at the Czech Masters, the week after winning in Denmark, and he performed reasonably well. Now he is back at a course which offers plenty of landing area off the tee. We think this American is destined for greater things, and are prepared to bet on him once more.
Elsewhere, we are going to take a punt on American Austin Connelly. The youngster made our list for the Open Championship in July, and performed exceedingly well. With these conditions similar to links golf, with an emphasis on the Connelly strength of putting, and with the field considerably weaker than at the major, we try again at huge odds.
Suri, 1pt to win, 28/1, SkyBet
Connelly 0.5 pts each way at 125/1, 1/5 the odds for six places, William Hill
