The European Tour is back this week after the WGC event in Mexico and we are heading back to the middle east and this time Oman. The Al Mouj course has been part of the European Challenge Tour and their end of season finale Race to Oman series. That has now become the Road to Ras Al Khaimah and the Oman Open had its inaugural event last year on the full European Tour Schedule.

The Al Mouj course sits on two-kilometer stretch of pristine coastline, flanked by the Sea of Oman and the stunning Hajjar mountain range. The 7,342-yard course is Oman’s first links style golf course, but this is more an American style links with lush vibrant green grass with waste areas, fairway bunkers, water hazards, fast true running greens and natural dunes.

The 2nd hole which is a par 3 is the courses signature hole and the raised green has the sea of Oman as its backdrop. The par 3, 4th hole also plays towards the Sea of Oman and then there is the island green at the par 3, 14th hole that is reminiscent of the 17th at TPC Sawgrass.

The 18th is a fitting finale to the course and this tournament, again playing to a green that sits with the Sea of Omen as its backdrop but this is a tough par 4 and the tee shot from the tips is played over the water and has the sea running all the way along the left side of the fairway, which plenty of bunkers to negotiate from the 60-yard mark and in.

My tips to Win:

There are some very good each-way tips this week so I have decided to go with two to win and three each-way tips

My tips to win:

Having finished the 2018 season with three Tops 20s Thomas Pieters 12/1 ¬– with SportingBet – has started this year in solid form but has not really challenged yet. Thomas went out in the second round of the Perth Super 6s but was sitting in the Top 5 before it moved to the match-play stage and I feel in this field he will be in the thick of it come Sunday.

How much the flight back from Mexico will have an effect on Joost Luiten 11/1 – with Ladbrokes – we won’t know until Thursday, but I am sure his final round 64 and Top 10 finish at the WGC event will certainly see him in confident mood this week. The physical pain of his wrist injury had obviously healed but I think we can now say those mental scars have fully healed as well and coming back to a venue where he won last year, I think he is the man to beat this week.

Each-way tips:

After his win in the British Masters in 2017 I think most people including himself expected Paul Dunne 40/1 – with SportingBet – to kick on, but Paul only really challenge once in 2018 at the Open de España. The start of 2019 see Dunne miss two cuts, but with a two Top 20s in his last two starts including a third place in the Perth Super 6s when he was sitting in second place before it moved to the match-play section, are signals the Irishman is on his way back.

A few of you will remember me tipping Marcus Kinhult 50/1 – with Ladbrokes – last season and saying how good I thought his golf game is, Marcus has had a mixed bag of finishes so far this year with two missed cuts and two Top 20s from his first four tournaments. Marcus should feel at home this week after having a runner-up finish here last season on the European Challenge Tours Race to Oman and just missing out on a Top 15 in this event last year by a shot. Kinhults’ last outing was a Top 20 finish in Saudi, so it looks like he enjoys playing in this part of the world.

I must admit I was surprised to see Jorge Campillo 60/1 – with BetFred – this far down the betting odds. I think you all know that I feel the lad has the golf game to do well, he just needs to believe in himself to finally get a tournament over the line. Last year was a good year for Jorge with a runner-up and five other Top 5 finishes one of those being on this course and although he hasn’t started this year well, I think these are very good odds for the Spaniard.

Outside Tip:

Another player that knows this course from the European Challenge Tour is Nick Cullen 100/1– with Ladbrokes – who had a seventh-place finish here last year and missed out on a Top 25 by a shot the year before. Nick made the Top 25 in the Vic Open a couple of weeks ago but missed the first cut in the Perth Super 6s when I tipped him, but I think knowing a course gives you a positive vibe especially when you have played well on it and I expect Cullen to do well this week.

Longer odds:

Try Jens Dantorp 150/1 – with SportingBet

As always good luck
