The Twenty-10 Course at the Celtic Manor hosts the 2020 ISPS Handa Wales Open this week, hot on the heels of staging last week’s Celtic Classic. It’s hard to see the course making any significant changes to the course set-up this week and we face the dilemma of going with the players that proved they can do it here last week or chance a player that missed last week’s event and comes here fresh.
Haotong Li, Robert McIntyre, Eddie Pepperrell, and Robert Rock come here fresh, but none of that quartet are begging to be backed at the available odds.
Last week’s 2020 Celtic Classic champion Sam Horsfield has an obvious chance, as the young Englishman has now won two of his last three events. The worry for punters is he missed the cut in between those wins. But he was much less emotional after win number two and his power-hitting is tailormade for the Twenty-10 course. He can’t be ruled out but winning back to back is tough to do.
Other players that went well last week include Connor Syme who finished joint-third, but the Scotsman was looking mentally tired and may find it tough to bounce back after fluffing a chance to win his first European Tour title.
Two other youngsters that caught the eye at last week’s Celtic Classic were Sean Crocker and Wilco Nienaber. They both finished on –10 but Crocker shot three good rounds and the 23-year-old could go close if avoiding the 73 that blew his chances in round three.
Nienaber is even younger at the age of 20 and he can hit the ball prodigious distances. His worst round last week was 71 and he could easily step-up up this week on his second look at the course.
Gavin Green hadn’t played for a few weeks prior to the Celtic Classic and he was just going along steadily after rounds of 70, 69, and 70. But he shot 63 in round four and better is expected this week.
Thomas Pieters just edges it as our ISPS Handa Open tip. The sweet swinging Belgian made a couple of errors last week but closed with four birdies to finish three shots off the lead. He too was making his first appearance for a while and he should at least land some more each-way money this week.
