The European Tour now moves back to Scotland and tees up at the Fairmont St Andrews and the Torrance course which first appeared on the European Tour last year when the Scottish Championship was played here, but the course has hosted events on both the Challenge and Senior Tours.

The Torrance course underwent a multimillion-pound redesign in 2008 which included the rebuilding of all 63 bunkers on the course and the redesign of several holes, a new irrigation system was added and of course that old Robert Trent Jones saying drainage, drainage and more drainage.

The Torrance Course was designed by Denis Griffiths along with the late great Gene Sarazen and European Ryder Cup Captain, Sam Torrance and weighs in at 7,230-yard. Changes were made to eight of the course's holes during the redesign, which now offers golfers more risk-reward holes and utilises the natural contours of the land and it's dramatic coastal setting

The opening eight holes are routed up the hillside and sweep around the Fairmont St Andrews hotel and down to the coastal edge overlooking the North Sea, the course then opens out with verdant fairways flanked by fescue rough with a backdrop of the Tay Estuary and the county of Angus in the distance.

Considerable effort was made during the redesign to isolate holes on the back nine by introducing large, mounds between fairways and these changes have resulted in an inward nine that enjoys a wild, natural feel.

My tips to Win:

After playing so well for the first three rounds at the ISPS Handa World Invitational a triple bogey on the 7th in the final round put paid to any chance Jordan Smith 25/1 – with BetFred – had of walking away with the title. What shouldn’t be forgotten in the aftermath is the opening round 62 and third round 65 that got Jordan into that position and once he looks back he should realise that his golf game is in good shape and go again this week.

This weeks defending champion is Adrian Otaegui 25/1 – with PaddyPower – I also feel the Spaniard may feel he has a point to prove to the Spanish PGA for not getting the nod when Jon Rahm had to pull out of the Olympics due to a positive COVID test. Adrian had a runner-up in Sweden and a Top 14 at the Irish Open and although he hasn’t played well the last couple of weeks he will want to defend his title and being back here is only going to bring back positive memories of last years victory.

Three Top 10s in his last six starts sees Masahiro Kawamura 25/1 – with BetFred – coming into this week in buoyant mood especially after his third place at last weeks World Invitational his second Top 5 in two weeks. Masahiro is still waiting for his first European Tour victory and in his current vain of form I expect him to be right in the thick of it again this week.

Each-way tips:

Another players that would have been slightly disappointed to not get the nod from the Spanish PGA is Santiago Tarrio 33/1 – with UniBet – who should have been next in line according to world ranking places when Sergio Garcia declined his invitation to play on the Olympic team. Santiago comes into this week on the back of two wins on the Challenge Tour and four other Top 5 finishes from his last seven starts and then had a Top 15 finish for his first start this year on the main European Tour at the World Invitational last week.

After starting 2021 in good form and a Top 10 at the Dubai Desert Classic Alexander Levy 66/1 – with BetFred – has been missing in action apart from the odd sporadic good result, but two Top 26 finishes in his last three starts and shooting a couple of 66s it looks like Alex has found something to work with and coming back to Fairmont St Andrews where he had a Top 16 last year firing a final round 66, could just be the burst of positive memories the five times winner on the European Tour needs

Outside tip:

Grant Forrest 80/1 – with SportingIndex – missed the cut at this event last year, but comes into this week after a 4th place at the Irish Open a few weeks ago. Grant is still finding his way in the professional ranks and while a glittering amateur career isn’t always a barometer to doing well on tour, this lad has the talent to go a long way in the game.

Longer odds:

Try Lucas Bjerregaard 200/1 – with SportingBet
As always good luck
