Betting tips: Hatton’s the man for Holland in the KLM Open

News & Tour

Who should you be banking on for the Dutch title?

The European Tour arrives in The Netherlands this week – with current champion Paul Casey unlikely to appear at Kennemer Golf & Country Club.

This has changed some of the betting options, and moved a few players up the field and into contention as far as the bookies are concerned.

Andy Sullivan famously won a trip to space here last year after acing the 15th hole.

“I’ll see what the missus says,” said the Nuneaton-native after his ace. She must have said ‘no’ as Sullivan has yet to cash in his ticket.

And now back to the matter at hand…

Our first pick is Tyrrell Hatton – the young Englishman has all the attributes to become a top level golfer – and is being seen as one of the favourites despite odds of 28/1 on the man from High Wycombe.

Without a win on the European Tour, it will be a tough ask, but Hatton did finish 25th at the the U.S. PGA Championship – which will be a huge confidence to the young-man who has proved he can cut it at the very top level.

Our second pick is Dutchman Joost Luiten – very much a home favourite at 22/1 behind German Martin Kaymer the overwhelming favourite at 9/1 – he’s won here before as recently as 2013, so he knows the track.

Expect Luiten to be spurred on by a home crowd – a steady £10 each-way bet ensures you won’t be disappointed come Sunday evening.

Our third and final pick is the enigmatic Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez.

Last winning this event in 1994, Jimenez has a good record at this event and came runner-up to Luiten in 2013.

Available at 50/1 – despite his age still challenges on the European Tour and is easily worth a £5 each-way bet.
