The European Tour stays in Europe this week and heads to Holland for the KLM Open, which this year will be played over the Colin Montgomerie and European Golf Design “The Dutch”.

The course is an outstanding test of golf, with undulating landscape, rolling fairways framed by gorse-clad mounds, topped off with smooth, lightning-quick greens and has that inland links feel to it.

The construction team used round-breaking construction techniques to create a dramatic and undulating landscape, but I will leave you with the words of Ross McMurray of European Golf Design to describe the course, which he stated was “My pride at creating The Dutch”

"The site was characterised by flat farmland several metres below sea level, with silt/clay soils overlying a deeper layer of peat. Not ideal for golf course construction... Quite radical shaping was used to create a rugged character where undulating fairways, featuring many bumps and hollows, are framed by dramatic mounding.

Out of necessity on land which is below sea level there are also many water features; lakes, streams and canals. We wanted to combine influences from links and heathlands with some modern flair to create a unique style. We wanted an immediate ‘wow’ factor then back that up with good strategic design. I really like the way the challenge builds as you go round. From a relatively gentle start it keeps racking up the pressure and the back nine is a real challenge. Most greens have a number of different tiers and lots of run-offs sweep shots away from the surface."

My tips to Win:

I am going to stick with a couple of players from last week and the first of those is Lee Westwood 18/1 – with BetFred – who has a runner-up and a Top 12 finish in his last two starts. Lee seems to have come back into form and with a third-place finish in this event last year – firing a 65 along the way – I think he will be in the thick of it again come Sunday.

I am sure Eddie Pepperell 20/1 – with SportingBet – will have been disappointed to have not been a Ryder Cup pick, but I do find myself agreeing with the captain this time. I don’t feel Eddie has quite shown enough consistency to challenge every time he tees it up – and by that, I mean at least making the Top 25 on a bad week. Eddie does have three Top 10s from his last five starts, but the other two finishes were in the high 50s. Pepperell had a Third-place finish here last year firing a final round 65 that see him move up the leaderboard ten places and I think he has something to prove this week.

With Matt Wallacewithdrawing his replacement will be Ryan Fox 22/1 – Bet365

Each-way tips:

Mike Lorenzo-Vera 30/1 – with SportingBet – just missed out of making the playoffs at the European Masters last week, but he certainly went for it with his shot out of the bunker on the final hole. Mike has had two Top 20 finishes in his last three starts – these were sandwiched by the PGA Championship where he shot a second round 65. Lorenzo-Vera didn’t play in this event last year but did have a Top 10 the year before over The Dutch course firing all four rounds in the 60s and in his current form I expect him to be challenging again this week. There is some doubt whether Mike Lorenzo-Vera will be playing this week, so if he does pull out after this guide goes live replacement pick would be Ryan Fox 33/1 – with Coral.

I did tip Joakim Lagergren 66/1 – with BetVictor – for his win earlier this year in Scilly and spoke to him after the event in the press conference where he told me he and his team had a planning session before the Trophiιe Hassan ll and that obviously has worked well up until his win. Consistency has again eluded the Swede who has had two Top 20s over The Dutch course and finished in the Top 10 last year. I think these are good odds for someone who obviously enjoys playing this course.

Outside tip:

The other player I am going to stick with this week is Phachara Khongwatmai 80/1 – with Unibet – it will be the third week on the spin I have tipped him, but I really do think this young lad is going to be a very good player. Phachara has had three Top 12 finishes from his last three starts and is slowly coming to terms with the European Tour and I am sure his final round 64 – that see him move up the leaderboard sixteen places on Sunday – will see him teeing it up in confident mood this week.

Longer odds:

Try Daniel Brooks 250/1 – with Bet365

As always good luck
