European Golf: If not Adrian, then Marcus…

The European Tour is staying in Australia (obviously!) this week for the ISPS Handa World Super 6 tournament, held at Lake Karrinyup Country Club near Perth.

This event is in its third year with its current format, a mix of stroke and match play. The 156-player strong field is cut to the top 65 and ties after 36 holes, and then to 24 players after 54 holes. Then the event turns to six hole match play events for the final day, with the top eight players getting initial byes.

This is a tricky event to call, as the best match play competitors have to make the cut and vice versa. Given the difficult nature of predicting the event, it seems a little pointless to us to go too near the front of the market.

Adrian Otaegui is a blog favourite who has won twice on the European Tour. His first victory in 2017 came in a match play event in Scotland, while his second was in the 2017 Belgian Knockout, a similar event to this week’s fun and games. We’ll take a chance with the Spaniard.

As previously mentioned, this is the third running of this format here, and Australians have reached the final on both previous occasions. It would thus seem only sensible to have an Aussie onside this week. And we’re going to plump for Marcus Fraser. He knows the course well and played reasonably last week in Victoria.

Recommendations:

Otaegui to win, 1 pt, at 45/1, SkyBet

Fraser to win, 1 pt, at 50/1, widely available
