Made In Himmerland Matt Wallace

Made in HimmerLand Predictions

The DP World Tour remains on mainland Europe and this week makes the 900-mile journey north from Switzerland to Denmark.

The Made in HimmerLand is a relatively new tournament, first being contested in August 2014 when Scotland’s Marc Warren took the title.

For the first six editions, it was played as the Made in Denmark, although the fifth of those in 2018 took place at Silkeborg Ry GC in Aarhus.

It returned to HimmerLand in 2019 and, after a year off due to the pandemic, continued there in 2021.

Both those editions were won by Bernd Wiesberger but the Austrian has now nailed his colors to LIV so won’t be here for a three-peat attempt.

Matt Wallace, last week’s runner-up in Switzerland, is the betting favorite and he’s also a former winner of this event. Note though that his win came in the year when the event was played at Silkeborg Ry.

As with last week’s Omega European Masters at Crans-sur-Sierre, we’re on a short course again, this one (known as the Backtee New Course) measuring in at under 6,700 yards.

It has six par fours measuring under 400 yards although Wiesberger’s winning total of -21 last year was a tournament record and his first win at the course was achieved with -14.

The land is very undulating and exposed while the par-3 16th – set in a natural amphitheater and packed with 3,500 spectators – has echoes of the 16th at TPC Scottsdale.

Looking at the seven winners, we’ve had an American (Julian Suri) and six from northern or western Europe. Nine of the 12 runners-up have also been from northern/western Europe and particularly prominent are British players.

In other words, it’s not been a great event for southern Europeans such as Spaniards.

The cooler weather could have played a part in that although it’s pleasant enough this week with temperatures around 70 degrees and winds only around 10mph.

Wallace Can Gain a Second Win

As mentioned, Matt Wallace’s victory in this event came on a different course.

However, in one of his two starts at HimmerLand, the Englishman posted tied sixth in 2017 so he’s a big fan of the tournament.

Looking through what’s required to win at HimmerLand, short game is very much to the fore.

That chimes well with Wallace’s stats from last week’s European Masters where he ranked 1st for both Strokes Gained: Putting and Strokes Gained: Around The Green.

That sharp touch took him into a playoff with Thriston Lawrence and although he got pipped, history says he’s very capable of going one better here.

Wallace won three times in 2018 so he’s a player who gets hot and stays hot and just two starts ago he was tied 10th in the PGA Tour’s Rocket Mortgage Classic. Before that he was tied 26th in the 3M Open.

Also fifth at the Dutch Open at the end of May, Wallace’s form is superior to just about everyone’s in this field and the odds look appealing.

Back him at +2200 to secure his fifth DP World Tour win.

Mansell Can Outscore Arnaus

We opposed Victor Perez last week and he missed the cut. Unfortunately, so did his 72-match bet rival Ryan Fox and the Kiwi took one more swing so we lost out.

Let’s try and make amends this week and test the theory that British players like this event better than Spaniards by backing Richard Mansell to beat Adri Arnaus.

To be honest, there’s more to it than just nationality and background.

Mansell is a real-form horse after a run of 20-4-23-3 in October.

The third place came at last week’s European Masters where he ranked 10th for SG: Putting and hit over 80% of greens in regulation for the second week running.

Arnaus shook off some poor form with a top 10 at Crans-sur-Sierre last week but he’d played well there before (sixth in 2019).

His DP World Tour form at HimmerLand is less convincing, with tied 52nd last year and a missed cut in 2019.

Mansell is the ‘dog and looks a value bet at +100 with bet365.

J.B. Hansen for a Top 20

J.B. Hansen has a rather strange record at HimmerLand.

He’s missed plenty of cuts there but won on the course when it staged a Challenge Tour event in 2018.

His form in 2022 is also of the contrasting variety but he’s made two of his last three cuts and closed 65-68-64 in Switzerland last week to share 14th place.

He hit the ball nicely (6th for Strokes Gained: Approach) there and was in the top 20 for SG: Putting.

This is a home game for the Dane and there’s enough in his formlines to suggest he’s worth a Top 20 play at +375 with bet365.
