The European Tour returns to one of its most popular venues this week, with Himmerland Golf Resort hosting the Made In Denmark event for the fourth year running.
Massive crowds generate a great atmosphere which is often lacking at similar tournaments, especially on the par-three 16th, with most of them no doubt hoping to see a home winner for the first time on Sunday.
Scotland’s Marc Warren won the inaugural event in 2014, with England’s David Horsey victorious the following year and Thomas Pieters effectively sealing a Ryder Cup wild card with his win 12 months ago.
Pieters is back to defend his title and clearly has the class to claim a fourth European Tour win but after finishing fourth in the Bridgestone Invitational, he missed the cut in the US PGA and makes little appeal at 8/1.
The top of the market in general is hard to evaluate but with windy conditions forecast, Denmark’s Soren Kjeldsen gets the nod ahead of compatriot Thorbjorn Olesen as the first of our Made In Denmark betting predictions.
Kjeldsen bounced back from a missed cut in the US PGA to finish 16th in the Wyndham Championship last week, with only a closing 71 preventing him from enjoying an even better result.
Having to make the journey across the Atlantic could be a negative but Kjeldsen will not need much time to familiarise himself with a course where he has finished 15th, second and eighth. Bad weather will also hold no fears for the former Irish Open winner, who can be backed at 11/1.
In a wide open field there are more generous odds on offer for our next two Made In Denmark selections, who both contested last week’s Paul Lawrie Match Play event in Germany.
England’s Tom Lewis enjoyed an impressive first-round victory over second seed Richie Ramsay and also beat Zander Lombard before bowing out in round three, while Lucas Bjerregaard ended his opening match with six straight birdies before losing in round two.
Lewis has never finished worse than 26th in three appearances in Denmark and looks to be on the road back to the sort of form which made him the leading amateur in the Open and European Tour rookie of the year in 2011. He can be backed at 80/1.
Bjerregaard’s record in his home event is poor but he won the inaugural GolfSixes with Olesen earlier this season and odds of 100/1 in the outright market or 10/1 for a top 10 make the Dane our final selection.
