Turkish Airlines Open Preview And Tips

Published on 02/11/16

Firstly, a big shout-out to Golf Betting Expert for last week’s 125/1 on the PGA Tour – and you can grab a month’s trial for just £1 if you fancy following his selections throughout November.

Now on to this week’s blog. The European Tour officially starts its Race To Dubai this week with the first of its Fall Series, which for the first-time has been reduced to three events, with the first being the Turkish Airlines Open.

The top-60 players in the standings, and invites, are eligible to play, though security scares means 8 of the top-11 in the standings have decided to bypass the event, instead waiting for next week’s Nedbank Challenge, and the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai the following week.

This will be the fourth staging of the Turkish Airlines Open but, after being hosted by the Montgomerie Maxx Royal for 3 consecutive years, it moves to the Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort, Antalya, Turkey, on a par-71 course measuring around 7,100 yards.

Opened in 2008, the Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort is said to be inspired by the Heathland courses of Sunningdale and Walton Heath, and is Turkey’s first heathland golf course. It features undulating sand hills, and is incorporated in a forest of pine trees, whilst lakes are features of the 5th, 9th and 14th holes. Meanwhile, fast and undulating greens will require some serious mastery with the putter. The course is expected to prove a completely different challenge than the previous venue, with accuracy more of a prerequisite than power.

I’m backing three players this week, starting with Andy Sullivan. The case for him is an obvious one, and if he repeats his tee-to-green excellence in the Portugal Masters then he must surely go close. It was his putting that let him down there but, as the greens will be unfamiliar to most players, just an average week with the putter should be enough to see him contend. Ranked 46th in the world, he knows he needs a good end to the season to cement that all important position in the world’s top-50.

Similar sentiments also make me want to back Lee Westwood this week, and he’s another who has an excellent tee-to-green game but is often let down by the flat-stick. He also sits just 1 place above Sullivan in the world rankings, and he’s expected to be motivated with big world ranking points up for grabs.

The last pick this week is Alejandro Canizares, and the Spaniard has put together some good rounds recently on courses where he was not expected to go well. He should love both the course and the conditions here, and looks a value pick.

Andy Sullivan 2 Points Each-Way @ 14/1 (Various Bookies) ¼ odds 5 places

Lee Westwood 2 Points Each-Way @ 25/1 (Betstars, Betvictor) ¼ odds 5 places

Alejandro Canizares 1 Point Each-Way @ 66/1 (Various Bookies) ¼ odds 5 places
