Czech Masters – Albatross Golf Resort, Prague, live on Sky Sports 4
This week the European Tour heads to the Czech Republic for the second staging of the Czech Masters. Admittedly, this event isn’t the biggest on the European Tour schedule, and the field is of very poor quality, but it should be a good tournament from a betting perspective. The total prize fund is just €1million in comparison with the $8.5million up for grabs in America. Jamie Donaldson won the 2014 edition of this event by beating fellow Welshman Bradley Dredge by two shots, however Donaldson has been ruled out with an injury, and therefore Victor Dubuisson heads the betting.
The Albatross Golf Resort was new to the European Tour circuit last year and it proved to be a proper challenge with only four players shooting ten under par and better. The course is a par 72 that measures a lengthy 7,516 yards and the longer hitters have an advantage, although that’s not to say that one of the shorter drivers of the ball can’t win this event, Soren Kjeldsen finished 3rd last year. The rough isn’t particularly thick, but water does come into play on numerous holes and a good week from tee to green appears to be the key to success around the Albatross Golf Resort. Each player in last year’s top ten finished the week ranked 15th or better in greens in regulation hit %, which is very significant.
Seve Benson – In such a weak field, I couldn’t ignore Seve Benson at 80/1. The Englishman has had a consistent year making 15 out of 19 cuts, although he hasn’t really threatened the top of the leaderboard. Benson has won three times on the Challenge Tour and finished 3rd on two occasions on the European Tour, which suggests he has the potential to win. He’s a long driver of the ball which is advantageous around the Albatross Golf Resort and he’s a good performer on the par 3’s which happen to be tricky this week.
1pt each way @ 80/1
Lasse Jensen – I’m sticking with Lasse Jensen this week after a pretty good performance in last week’s Made In Denmark. Jensen finished in 35th position last week and his all-round game appeared to be in good shape. This week’s venue should suit the Dane more and after a run of good events, he’s well worth a bet at 150/1. He was leading the BMW International Open after shooting a first round score of 65 and also shot an opening round of 64 in the Omega European Masters recently, this indicating that he’s playing some very good golf at the moment.

Carlos Del Moral – Del Moral has had a very good season so far for his standards and he comes into this week in pretty good form. He’s made eight of his last nine cuts and opened with a 66 in last week’s Made In Denmark. Admittedly, the following three rounds weren’t his best, however the course wasn’t one that suited his game. I expect the Spaniard to go much better around this week’s venue, because there’s more room off the tee and he’s a long driver of the ball. Carlos Del Moral has recorded three top 20’s in his last eight starts and this includes a tie for 4th place in the BMW International Open which consisted of a much stronger field than this weeks.
