The tour now moves back to mainland Europe and the fantastic facilities at the Club de Campo Villa de Madrid's Negro course for the Open de España. Sitting on the outskirts of Madrid the original club was founded in 1930 with a Tom Simpson and Philip McKenzie Ross design, which was damaged during the Spanish Civil War.

The club reopened in 1952, a nine-hole course which featured seven holes from an earlier Javier Arana design. It took another four years before Javier designed a new nine-holes and remodelled the existing nine and in 1962 the club decided to expand and Arana was commissioned to design another nine-holes, which required rerouting of the existing course with the 15th and 18th holes becoming the 7th and 9th.

In 1993 three times Open Champion Seve Ballesteros was commissioned to design another 9-holes completing the Amarillo course – In a fitting tribute three years later Seve would go on to notch up his 50th European Tour Victory in the Open de España, which was held at the Club de Campo facility.

This week Club de Campo will be hosting its ninth Open de España and has also hosted fourteen Madrid Opens. The course sits on top of the Cerro de Aguila hill and makes full use of the terrain and its spectacular views over Madrid. The course is tree-lined and uses the typograpy to slowly move players down from the clubhouse to the Manzanares planes and using the 8th and 9th – which is a par 3 par played over a gorge – to come back to the clubhouse, this is achieved by the 14th and 15th on the back nine.

My tips to Win:

This week’s defending champion is Jon Rahm 10/3 – with SportingBet – and you could see what it meant to him with his emotional acceptance speech last year and while he may not be in the best of form coming into this week, he will be doing everything to make it back-to-back wins, something his hero’s Seve or Sergio have been unable to achieve.

Speaking of Sergio Garcia 6/1 – with SportingBet – who will be looking to make it back-to-back victories after winning the KLM Open earlier this month. I was surprised that he missed the BMW PGA Championship, but having never won over the Wentworth course maybe he decided to concentrate on winning his home tournament.

I have tipped Andrea Pavan 18/1 – with BetFair – a couple of times this year and the Italian seems to be in a rich vain of form. Another Top 10 at the Dunhill Links Championship made it his third in nine starts after winning the BMW International Open and that includes two Top 5s and I expect him to be challenging again this week.

Each-way tips:

Still waiting for his maiden European Tour win is Callum Shinkwin 50/1 – with SpreadEx – who should come into this week in confident mood after consecutive Top 10 finishes which includes a Top 5 at the KLM Open. It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster year for Callum with missed cuts and Top 10s, he does have the game to win tournaments and I feel in his current form these are good odds in this field.

A second Top 5 in this tournament last year shows Jorge Campillo 66/1 – with UniBet – has no problems performing in front of a partisan crowd, he also has another Top 10 in this event. It has been a strange year for Jorge, after finally getting his maiden European Tour win, which he backed up with a Top 5 the following week and has had third and seventh place finishes since then, but there have also been six missed cuts. I think a week’s rest and teeing it back up on home soil should bring out the best in him again this week.

Outside Tip:

You can never really write off a home player in his nations national tournament and although Nacho Elvira 90/1 – with BetFred – seems to have lost his way a little since back-to-back runner-up finishes earlier in the year, he does have the game to challenge this week.

Longer odds:

Try Alejandro Cañizares 250/1 – with UniBet

As always good luck
