The venue of the 2018 Ryder Cup, Le Golf National plays host to this week’s 100th Open de France which will be played over the Albatross course that surrounds the Chateau of Versailles, once home of King Louis XIV and one of three courses that make up Le Golf National.

The French Open is one of the oldest Open Championships played in Europe, the first event was won by Arnaud Massy who then went onto win the championship three more times. He also won the Open Championship held at Royal Liverpool in 1907, becoming the first none British player to win the event.

In 1985, the French Golf Federation's Executive Committee decided they wanted to give the Open de France a permanent home and came up with a plan to build the Le National Club, it took three years to construct and was open for play in 1990. Hubert Chesneau and Robert Von Hagge designed the 6,854-yard Albatross course and although built on flat farmland it manages to combine a links feel with American style target golf. The course has wide undulating fairways, with links style bunkering, water hazards and with artificially created sand dunes it offers a tough test of golf.

My tips to win:

At some point fate is going to let Francesco Molinari 14/1 – with Bet365 – finally win this title, the Italian has three runner-up finishes one of which was when he lost in a play-off. Francesco has been playing some solid golf on the PGA Tour with four Top 10s and went into the US Open on the back of four Top 25 finishes one of which was his sixth place at The Players Championship. I am sure he will be looking forward to teeing it up at Le Golf National again this week.

Bernd Wiesberger 20/1 – with Ladbrokes – is a past champion here winning the title two years ago and defended his title with an eleventh place finish last year. Bernd has a win and three other Top 10s on the European Tour so far this year and a Top 15 finish two weeks ago at the US Open and a Top 20 at last weeks BMW International Open at the weekend should see him come into this week in confident mood.

My each-way tips:

It is hard to discount someone who has one this event twice, which is what Graeme McDowell 50/1 – with Bwin – has achieved. It has not been a great season for the lad from Portrush with only four Top 25s on the PGA Tour where he is spending most of his time now and of his two starts on the desert swing of the European Tour his best finish was a thirteenth place at the Dubai Desert Classic. But it is hard to discount him around this track at these odds.

It has been a tough year for Soren Kjeldson 55/1 – with PaddyPower – who has been playing the PGA Tour full time and so far has five missed cuts from fourteen starts. I actually met Soren walking the course at the Zurich Classic during the proam and he told me he was enjoying his time in the US and is just finding his feet like most Europeans who have taken the same route. Kjeldson seems to enjoy Le Golf National track and has not been outside the Top 20 here since 2012 and I am sure being back on the European Tour will be like climbing back into your own bed after months of being away.

Last years champion was Thongchai Jaidee 66/1 – with BetFred –who comes into this event with three Top 15s from his last eight starts, but after a great start at last weeks BMW International Open – where he opened up with a solid 68 – he crashed and burned firing a second round 81 that see him miss the cut. Looking back over the year it really was – hopefully – a one off as his highest round up until that point was a 77, which followed on from a 76 the week before. I feel coming back to the place of his most recent victory will bring some positive energy back to his game.

My outside tips:

There are a couple of good outside tips this week, first up is Jamie Donaldson 70/1 – with PaddyPower – who seems to be coming back into form and he has had two Top 15 finishes from his last two starts and he also has a good record here with last year being the first time he was outside the Top 20 since 2013. I have tipped Graeme Storm 110/1 – with Bet365 – a couple of times this year as he seems to have found a new lease of life and as a past champion of this event and teeing it up in confident form could be a great combination at these odds.

As always good luck
