The European Tour leaves the Scottish links after another dramatic Open Championship and heads to Germany for the Porsche European Open.
We at Lap of the Odds feel a bit peeved that a blog favourite Francisco Molinari landed the big one without being tipped, but we just felt his recent success had taken the value off his price. Also annoying was watching Pat Perez and Matthew Southgate play well above their hefty odds but finish just outside of the places.
Never mind, onwards and upwards.
The Green Eagle Golf Course, near Hamburg, is designed for long hitters, featuring unusually five par 5s. Although the recent lack of rain means the fairways are running fast, we still need to look at players who give the ball a whack off the tee.
We’re unsure about the top of the market, many of these top players have just come out of the heat of the battle at Carnoustie and may just go through the motions.
Lucas Bjerregaard has been a little hit and miss this season, but most of his weak results have occurred on links courses. Back on the European mainland courses, we’ll take a punt that this week is one of his better weeks.
Our second option is Julien Guerrier. The Frenchman has length off the tee and has been playing well without sealing the deal with a win. This could be his week.
Bjerregaard 0.5 pts each way at 33/1, 1/5 the odds for the first seven places, Paddy Power
Guerrier 0.5 pts each way at 70/1, 1/4 the odds for the first five places, SkyBet
