PGA of Australia
The history of golf at Crans-sur-Sierra where this week’s Omega European Open is to be played can be traced back to 1905. Arnold Lunn, who owned the Palace Hotel, was persuaded that the pastureland to the west of the hotel was ideal for a golf course. Two Englishmen Freemantle and Gedge were commissioned and the first nine holes were opened in 1906 to be followed by the second nine in 1908.
The golf course was abandoned during World War I but was reopened in 1921 thanks to hoteliers, Elysée Bonvin (Hotel du Golf) and Albert Bonvin (Beauséjour). In 1924 the Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club was founded, with René Payot as its first President. Shortly after the opening, architect Harry Nicholson was commissioned to add improvements.
A large number of greens were remodelled and additional bunkering, thus creating the overall layout at Plan-Bramois which remained unchanged until 1997. In 1995 Severiano Ballesteros was commissioned to make it more challenging to the professionals on the European Tour and even more attractive for the many golfers that visit this resort.
After two redesigns, the course opened with new greens with various contours and slopes, new tee boxes installed and obstacles added or modified.

My tips to win:
This weeks defending champion is Alex Noren 10/1 with SportingBet defending one of his four titles he won last year. Its obviously a tournament that Noren enjoys as he also won this event back in 2009. Alex has not played since the PGA Championship and although he maybe coming into this week a bit tournament rusty I am sure he has been working on his game during his break.
Another player who has had a few weeks break is Tommy Fleetwood 12/1 with PaddyPower who has had an exciting year winning twice on the European Tour, a Top 5 at the US Open and a runner-up in a WGC event. Tommy will be looking forward to the end of year events and extending his lead this week in the Race To Dubai rankings.
Its not been the year that Matthew Fitzpatrick 30/1 with SkyBet was envisaging at the beginning of the season, but there is still a long way to go and with the build up to the Race to Dubai and the Rolex Series there is a lot to play for. Matthew has a good record here with a runner-up and Top 10 finishes from his three starts over the Crans-sur-Sierre track and I feel he will get his year back on track this week.
My each-way tips:
Another past champion Crans-sur-Sierre is Richie Ramsay 35/1 with BetFred who won this event in 2012 firing final rounds of 64, 66 to take the title by four shots. There have been glimpses of that form this year when he fired a final round 65 at the Irish Open on the way to taking the runner-up spot. Richie has played some steady golf since then with a couple of other Top 25 finishes but being back here and those positive vibes should see him back in the thick of it this week.
I am going to stick with Jamie Donaldson 55/1 with BetFred this week and although I felt he would have been challenging in last weeks tournament he still made the Top 25, making it three from three in his last three starts. Jamie has had several Top 10s in this event and its obviously a tournament he enjoys teeing it up in and maybe that positive energy along with his growing confidence in his golf game will see him challenging again this week.
My outside tips:
There are some good outside bets this week with Mike Lorenzo-Vera 80/1 with Bet365 who comes into this week on the back of two Top 10 finishes from his last four starts and opened with a 64 here last year on the way to a Top 15 finish.
For those seeking longer odds Matt Wallace 150/1 with BoyleSports who has already won in his first season on the European Tour and followed that up with a Top 10 two weeks ago at the Made In Denmark or Brett Rumford 350/1 with Bet365 who won this event in 2007
As always good luck
