Golf Betting Tips – Turkish Airlines Open
Free golf betting tips for the Turkish Airlines Open at the Regnum Carya Golf Course and Spa Resort in Antalya, starting Thursday 3 November.
It’s a disappointing field for this event with security concerns, injuries and players taking a break before the Race to Dubai starts in earnest. However, there are always betting opportunities and hopefully we can tip a winner after Ross Fisher somehow managed to lose our E/W money with a truly amateurish end to his round last week.
Regnum Carya hosts this event for the first time and by all accounts it is like a heathland course (think Sunningdale) and is tree lined with fast running fairways and large sloping greens. Whilst a little bit of guess work is required for the type of player to select for this week’s golf tips, I would think that the accurate, patient golfers with a nice touch on and around the greens will go well.
Turkish Open golf betting tips
Andy Sullivan 14/1 E/W Paddy Power (6 places)
It’s not going to come as a surprise to anyone to see Sullivan tipped up, but I think he needs to be part of any betting plan. He had a quiet Ryder Cup, but found some form when coming second in the Portugal Masters – see his brilliant chip in the tournament’s Shots of the Week video. He looked very confident with the driver, and set up multiple chances from the middle of the fairways to break away from the pack. Unfortunately, he came unstuck with the putter and could not convert enough chances to beat the resurgent Harrington to the win. I’m more than willing to give him another chance in this poor field, and it would be no surprise to see him go one better.
Raphael Jacquelin 125/1 E/W Paddy Power
The 42 year old Frenchman is getting on in age, but hopefully Harrington can inspire the 4 times European Tour winner to up his game this week. He played some nice stuff in Portugal and had three rounds in the 60s with a very nice 66, 65 start. I think the course may suit his eye and he will be enjoy not having to compete on a course that just suits power. Whilst it was a different course last year, he will at least have happy memories of this event as he was tied 5th last year.
Alejandro Canizares 66/1 E/W Paddy Power
Well I can’t say that the Spaniard has had a great year, but he has got a track record of playing tree lined courses well. Again he’s a similar profile to Jacquelin in that he is accurate and is a sound putter. He is only 52 in the Race to Dubai and he needs a good few weeks to get into the final event where the top 60 qualify, so motivation should be no problem this week.
It’s not a week for any large bets, as we have little known course knowledge, and it may be wise to keep your main stake money for the next two events in the Dubai series.
