Open Championship – Top-10 Greatest Hits – #3

No Italian golfer had ever come close to winning the Open Championship, but at the 124th staging of the venerable event in 1995, Bergamo-born Constantino Rocca was in contention coming to the final two holes

The kids might be back to school but our stat man has been hard at work all summer crunching numbers and turning profit. Here’s this week’s theory explained ahead of the KLM Open:

2019 KLM Open Betting Preview And Tips
September 12th – 15th, 2019
The International, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Par: 73 / Yardage: 6,966
Defending Champion: Wu Ashun

Thomas Pieters 14/1

Thomas found his game in the Czech Republic and you feel the win got the monkey off his back. Top-10 Greens In Regulation performances in his last three starts continue to keep him in contention and he returns as a past champ having won in Kennemer in 2015. Reed, Garcia and Wallace also play in this Wentworth loosener but it’s Pieters for me.

Gavin Green 33/1

Returns after a rest week and you have to think this virgin venue will suit him perfectly. Makes his money by being an absolute greens in regulation king and comes in off a T12 in Switzerland and T16 in Sweden. Needs a good putting week.

Romain Wattel 66/1

In betting circles you just have to love the guy that misses a squillion cuts then suddenly finds the secret and contends. Say bonjour to Romain Wattel, who’s had a torrid 2019 then found form in Hamburg last weekend scoring a solo 6th. Winner two years ago at The Dutch, he’ll have positive vibes coming in.

Sam Horsfield 33/1

It’s only a matter of time until Sam Horsfield breaks through and realises his big potential. And it looks to be close after a T3 in the Czech Republic, T10 in Sweden and T14 last week in Germany. Two eagles and 64 birdies in those three events and if Sam can tidy up his game a fraction this week, he can contend.

Ashley Chesters 80/1

T7 in Germany last week and impressed across all the major stats which indicates form. T17 in driving accuracy, T6 greens in regulation and T14 in putting around that tough Hamburg track jumped Chesters into 109th on the Race To Dubai and another solid week here would be big towards retaining his card for 2020.

Long Odds Glory Shot

Andres Romero 90/1 hits it as hard as he can, finds it, then hits it again. It also helps that he’s a prodigious putter. Second last time out in Switzerland. Misses more cuts than a blunt scissors but man is it fun to watch!
