This week’s DP World Tour is held at the Crans Sierre Golf Club, which has hosted the event for the past few years. I always find this is a really good event to have a punt in and I’m very positive about my selections this week.
This course really fits the bill for a few of my regulars with good iron and putting skills, which is a combination needed to win here. And with only a few weeks left until the Ryder Cup, there won’t be too many more chances to get a place in the squad.
This week, I have teamed up with Bet Victor to bring you a cracking sign-up offer. All you need to do is bet £5 and you will £30 in free bets, giving you a decent chance to cover all six of my betting tips.
The DP World Tour heads to Switzerland for the European Masters this week and I have a full six-man squad lined up for you. My number one selection for the event is a player who I think will go all out to win here. He has all the right credentials to get the job done, despite it being a really strong field.
With the Ryder Cup just a few weeks away, there will be plenty of players looking to make an impression on Luke Donald and I think Alexander Bjork will certainly be one of them. He has really warmed into the season and is certainly on the cusp of making the Ryder Cup squad, but he could cement his position with a win here this week.
He is a very strong iron player which is essential this week and he shot four solid rounds in this event last season, whilst not necessarily playing his best golf. Last year he carded a 68, followed by three 67s, which is solid scoring, but I’m convinced there is even more to come from him. He has left a few birdies out there on the course this season, but he has been in much better form just recently and I think a big performance could well be on the cards for Alexander Bjork this week.
If you have been following my content this season you will know I am very fond of Richard Mansell, having played on Tour with him myself a fair few times. I think he is more than good enough to get a win on the DP World Tour and this course suits his game down to the ground. He finished third in this event last year, having played solidly throughout and I’m sure he’ll be putting on a repeat performance this time.
He has lost a little bit of form in the approach to this event, but he has always been a very up and down sort of player, so it would be no surprise to me to see him turn it on this week. He’s more than capable of going really low and there’s no doubt in my mind that he has all of the tools in the bag to tear it up again this week.
Yannik Paul has been my most-selected player this season and deservedly so. He is a seriously good player and I would definitely be taking him to the Ryder Cup if it was left up to me. You won't find a better iron player than Yannik and he has become very consistent too. Not only has he won on Tour this season, he has collected a big bunch of Top 10s too.
Last week, he managed a 10th place finish in the D+D Czech Masters, where he didn’t necessarily play his best golf, so even a tiny bit of improvement should see him up at the top of the leaderboard again. He will be hitting plenty of greens in regulation and he’s solid enough with the putter too, so I find it hard to see Yannik Paul out of the places this week.
I can’t bring myself to leave Jorge Campillo out of the squad this week, because he is hugely overpriced at 80/1. He played pretty solidly all week at the Czech Masters and I think he will be much better suited to this week’s course, so he is genuinely worth another shot on that basis alone.
He won the Kenyan Open for us at the beginning of the season and it would be very timely if he was able to win another just before the Ryder Cup team is announced. Apart from Yannik Paul, I think Jorge Campillo is one of the best iron players when he is in the groove and he seems to make putts from everywhere. Even though he is my number four this week, I still feel he has an outstanding chance and at 80/1, he’s unmissable.
Frenchman Antoine Rozner is a real form player and slowly but surely, he is starting to hit top gear. He loves it round this course and comes here in good form having finished in a tie for 20th in the Open Championship, followed by a very respectable tie for 22nd place in the Czech Masters.
He is a three-time DP World Tour winner and at the beginning of the season, I tipped him to get himself a Ryder Cup spot, which he’s slightly short of right now, but a good win here could just put him back in the reckoning. He is a good all-round player and I’m certain he will give us a really good run for our money this week.
One of my favourite players on Tour is German Marcel Siem and I just had to include him here because this is a course that suits him perfectly. He has let us down a few times this season since his victory In the Indian Open, but he can’t be ignored this time.
He’ll get loads of birdie opportunities this week and he just rolls his putter so well. He carded two 65s on this course last season and he’s a real momentum player, so if he starts strong again, I think he has a big chance here. Marcel Siem can be an excellent player and I think he might just steal one more title before the season is done.
