KLM Open Betting Tips & Preview – Thursday 14th September 2017

The FedEx Cup playoffs are providing some world class golfing drama over on the PGA Tour. Meanwhile, the European Tour is getting ready for its own closing stretch of tournaments. There are a few more events to go before the conclusion of the Race to Dubai including this week’s KLM Open.

The KLM Open took its first trip to Spijk and the 6,981 yard course at the Dutch last year. The course was generally well received by the players and many of those in the field 12 months ago have returned for another crack this week. With some big names looking for important Ryder Cup ranking points and a host of up and coming talent we could be in for a final day’s play that rivals the battle between Joost Luiten and Bernd Wiesberger last year.

Tips and Predictions

Andy Sullivan is one of those players in the field this week who is desperate to make it onto Thomas Bjorn’s team next summer. Sullivan knows that his golf has not been good enough this year to get anywhere near to a captain’s pick and so he’ll likely have to earn his place at Le Golf National through the points list.

Sullivan didn’t play the KLM Open last year but he’s kicking off his Ryder Cup qualifying campaign at the Dutch this week. With a game based around accuracy off the tee and quality shots into the greens, Sullivan should find the Dutch a very good fit which makes him look a very good bet at 33/1 with Coral.

Next year’s Ryder Cup is probably going to come too soon for Eddie Pepperell but he certainly has the required talent to play for Europe at some stage in his career. For now, Pepperell is focusing on getting his first win on the European Tour. It’s been a better year for Pepperell compared to last when he missed the cut at the Dutch. That will provide him with some important lessons and he can learn from them to challenge the leaders this week at 50/1 with Bet365.

Tournament Info

  • From high to low - After a week in the Swiss Alps, the European Tour heads to the flat of Spijk in the Netherlands
  • Monty’s place - The host course for the KLM Open, the Dutch, was designed by Colin Montgomerie
  • No sea, still a links - The Dutch is described as an ‘inland links’ and should prove more challenging than last year with the wind forecast to whip up
  • Dutch courage - The Dutch galleries will be hoping for another home winner after Joost Luiten won last year thanks to a tremendous final round

Other Bets and Odds

Padraig Harrington is making a relatively rare European Tour appearance at this week’s KLM Open. The Irishman tends to focus on the PGA Tour so it is interesting that he’s picked the Dutch as a venue at which he feels he has a chance. As an Open champion, the links style of the Dutch should suit Harrington well and he has the quality for a crack at the title at 66/1 with Coral.
