European Golf: Joost reward…

It’s the turn of Spain to host this week’s tournament on the European Tour, with Valderrama the venue for the Andalucia Masters.

This is one of Europe’s most iconic courses. Not particularly long, it features plenty of trees and tends to suit players who can plot their way along rather than trying to overpower the course.

Defending champion is Sergio Garcia, and the former Masters champion has a tremendous record around here. However, his game is in a funk and he’s too short a price to touch. We like Matthew Fitzpatrick around this course, but worry about tiredness given he lost in a playoff last week.

Instead we’re going to side with Joost Luiten. The Dutch player has a good record here, with two top fives and an 11th in four attempts. He may have missed the cut last week but that means he’s fresh coming to one of his favourite courses.

Our each way selection is Adrian Otaegui. A favourite of ours, this Spanish golfer excels at keeping the ball in play and has the short game to capitalise on any opportunities. He has finished in the top 30 in four of his last five tournaments, so is in form, and looks likely to go well.
