The three-week Spanish swing concludes at the Mallorca Open and home players will be trying to complete a sweep.
Jon Rahm, the 2021 US Open winner, landed the Open de Espana by six shots a fortnight ago and last week his compatriot, Adrian Otaegui, matched that dominant victory margin to capture the Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucia Masters at famed Valderrama.
Rahm isn’t here this time but Otaegui will peg it up and go in search of back-to-back wins.
For others, the main goal this week is to try and secure a place in the top 50 of the Race to Dubai standings and earn a spot in the season-ending DP World Tour Championship.
And for some, they have just this week and next week’s Portugal Masters to secure their playing privileges.
This event has only been played once previously and that was at a different venue, Golf Santa Posa, where Jeff Winther scored a one-shot win over Sweden’s Sebastian Soderberg and Spanish pair Jorge Campillo and Pep Angles.
This week’s course, Son Muntaner, is being used for the first time on the DP World Tour and the first thing to notice is how short it is.
A par 71, it measures in at just 6,952 yards according to the DP World Tour website while the fairways are bermuda and the greens bentgrass.
It’s parkland in nature, so typical of a Spanish layout, and has one less par five than usual.
Sergio Garcia was rumored to be playing after it emerged that he’d have to play one of these three Spanish events to retain his eligibility for Ryder Cup selection. The stipulation is that players must play a minimum of four events and Garcia has only contested three.
But he hasn’t turned up, meaning the Spaniard’s career in the bi-annual event is likely over.
It’s a future Ryder Cupper, Rasmus Hojgaard, who heads the betting while recent Alfred Dunhill Links Championship winner, Ryan Fox, is next best.
A winning score? This looks a far easier course than Valderrama and 19-under won there so it’s reasonable to expect something in the 20-unders.
The two favorites on the Spanish Swing so far have had contrasting fortunes.
Jon Rahm powered to victory in the Open de Espana but Valderrama market leader Matt Fitzpatrick missed the cut.
But I’m going to stick with the idea that class will tell and make Rasmus Hojgaard my outright selection for the win.
The Dane has three DP World Tour victories already at age 21 but the last was over a year ago and he’ll want to get that tally moving again.
It so nearly did at the recent Open de France when his bid to go wire-to-wire was only undone by a blistering Sunday 62 from Italian Guido Migliozzi.
Hojgaard followed that second place with tied 17th in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and, after a week off, he returned to action with a fifth place at Valderrama on Sunday.
He looked to be doing everything well there, ranking in the top 15 for SG: Off The Tee, Tee To Green, and Putting.
Hojgaard also had a strong record in Spain when on the Challenge Tour, posting 2-8-13 in the three events he contested there in 2019.
His place at the front of the betting is very much deserved and the Dane can get the win at +1200 with Caesars Sportsbook.
Everything went right for Adrian Otaegui when he blitzed the field at Valderrama last week but it’s asking a lot for the magic touch to stay with him for a second week.
Otaegui absolutely putted the lights out but if there’s a reversion to the mean he’ll find things much less to his favor here.
I want to take him on with someone showing great consistency and one player that applies to right now is Eddie Pepperell.
The Englishman hasn’t finished worse than tied 32nd in his last nine starts and seven times in that run he’s landed in the top 20.
Pepperell has two top 15s in his last three starts in Spain and his latest Strokes Gained: Approach numbers are superb.
Take Pepperrell at +100 to win over 72 holes.
Germany’s Marcel Schneider won twice on the Challenge Tour in 2021 and has racked up a string of good finishes on the DP World Tour this year.
He’s currently 53rd on the season-long rankings so still needs to push to make the top 50.
Schneider has managed five top 10s in his last 15 starts and looks worth a punt to have another after four top 20s in his last six tournaments since August.
Add in a good record in Spain and Schneider can rack up another top 10 at +375 with bet365.
