2019 Turkish Airlines Open Betting Preview and Tips
November 7th – 10th, 2019
The Montgomerie Maxx Royal, Antalya,, Turkey
Par: 72 / Yardage: 7,133
Purse: $7 million with $1,194,252 to the winner
Defending Champion: Justin Rose

Favourite Watch
There’s no Tiger or Rory this week so it’s left to Justin Rose to headline the betting at 8/1Rosey is the back-to-back defending champion but that was up the road at the Regnum Carya. Pat Reed is 11/1 but worth a look in the win only market might be Shane Lowry at 16/1. He didn’t putt super last week in China but a T9 in GIR shows tee to green he’s playing nicely and he’s never been outside the top-25 in four visits to Turkey.

Doc’s Top-5 Each Way Bets

Matthias Schwab 28/1
Seems to be still in his trend of missing every second cut but a T4 last week in a big WGC event is sure to have boosted Schwab’s confidence and with a T2 in Germany and T4 in Italy, you have to feel a win is coming soon. T18 on his Turkey debut last year.

George Coetzee 40/1
Had to do a double take when I saw George listed at 40/1 this week. Solo third at Golf National which is a tough track for a big batter like George, then a T14 in Portugal and winner of the Vodacom Origins Of Golf on the Sunshine Tour last weekend. Best of solo 5th in Turkey in 2016. Maybe the bookies think Georgie and the rugby boys have been on the beer all week!

Danny Willett 30/1
I have to give Danny the benefit of the doubt after something went horribly wrong after a good first round in China was followed by a fall to dead last. He did speak about the heavy rough and getting flyers but that’s done and dusted and he’s back in Turkey this week where he’s previously finished T11 and T4 on this week’s Maxx Royal course and T7 last year on the Regnum Carya course. 

Tom Lewis 50/1
I’m a big fan of Tom Lewis, he just seems to ghost in every now and again to contend in events. T5 at the Alfred Dunhill was followed by a T8 in Portugal last time out. I think he’ll like the venue this week where the good putters always prosper.

Victor Perez 40/1
Victor has banked over €1.2 million in the last month with a win on the links in Scotland and T4 last week at the WGC HSBC Champions. In fact his three wins, including two on the Challenge Tour, were all in the Autumnal months. Debut here for the big Frenchman but I think he’ll love it.

Long Odds Glory Shots
Nico Colsaerts 80/1:  Overpriced. Winner of the Open de France and T2 in Turkey in 2017.  Victor Dubuisson showed its all about par-5 scoring when he posted -16 for the par fives when he got it to -22 on the Maxx Royal to win in 2015. 

Paul Waring 50/1: Four top-25 finishes on the bounce for Paul Waring with big cheques in Scotland (T3) and in China last week (T8)
