The European Tour continues its world domination and moves from its desert swing down to Australia and the ISPS Handa Vic Open, which is a new sponsor for the event this year.

An hour’s drive from Melbourne Thirteenth Beach Golf Links lies on the south coast of the Bellarine Peninsula. Design by Tony Cashmore and opened for play in 2001 'The Beach Course" sits nestled among the sand dunes on the southern side of the property just a stone’s throw from the beach.

Like all links courses the elements which can change very quickly will play a bit part this week but not all the course is set in the dunes, other parts of the course run down into a more swampy type area.

One of the holes to look out for on the run in is the par 3, 16th hole at only 122-yards, this hole has been compared to the postage stamp at Troon because every side of the green falls away to either a bunker or deep rough and when the wind blows, then hitting and staying on the putting surface becomes twice as hard, but all the par 3s on this course are great golf holes.

There are a variety of par-4’s and par-5’s with strategically placed bunkers, clinging rough and plenty of risk and reward for the long hitters.

My tips to Win:

With three Top 10s from his four starts on the European Tours wraparound season Jason Scrivener 14/1 – with SkyBet – is certainly in great form and his other finishes wasn’t too shabby being a sixteenth place at the Abu Dhabi Championship where a third round 74 let him down. Jason is still waiting to win on the European and Australasia Tours, born in South Africa but moved to Australia aged 10, this week would certainly be a great place to grab that first victory.

I am sure Ryan Fox 16/1 – PaddyPower – will be looking forward to teeing it up on familiar territory and the Australasia Tour, which is co-sanctioning this event with the European Tour. Ryan bounced back from his missed cut at the Dubai Desert Classic firing all four rounds in the 60s and a sixth-place finish at the weekend and I expect his good form to continue this week.

Current leader of the Asian Tours OOM is Jazz Janewattananond 22/1 – with UniBet with a win at the Singapore Open a few weeks ago. Jazz finished last season on the European Tour with three Top 20 finishes from his last four starts including a sixth-place finish at the Nordia Masters event. Janewattananond spent two-weeks as a monk in Thailand at the end of the 2016 and he credits the time spent inside the temple for his maiden Asian Tour win at the 2017 Bangladesh Open and I am sure being able to tap into that calmness will help him.

Each-way tips:

Dimitrios Papadatos 50/1 – with SkyBet – is a past champion of this event winning two years ago, he also won another tournament on the Australasia Tour that year. Dimitrios obviously got a taste for winning as he went on to notch up his first win on the European Challenge Tour last year and I am sure he will be looking to win this week to make it his first win on the full European Tour.

Someone we tipped a couple of times at the back end of last year was Matthew Millar 50/1 – with Coral – in some of the Australasia Tour events and he certainly done well for us. Matthew hasn’t won this event but does have a runner-up and a third-place finish at the Australian PGA Championship see him also take the runner-up spot on the Australasia Tours OOM and he will be looking forward to this week.

Outside Tip:

A win and a runner-up finish in this event certainly shows that Matthew Griffin 80/1 – with Ladbrokes – enjoys teeing it up on the Thirteenth Beach Golf Links – he also has a couple of other Top 20 finishes here. Matthew won the 2016 PGA Tour of Australasia Order of Merit and has won in New Zealand, Fiji and in Korea on the way to winning the OneAsia Order of Merit.

Longer odds:

Try defending Champion Simon Hawkes 175/1 – with SpreadEx
