TSZ TIPS

SERGIO GARCIA

  • One of Spain’s most successful players ever returns to his home country having won during his last outing when he claimed his 16th tour title.
  • With seven European Tour titles won in Spain to date and alongside current form, he could be a difficult man to stop this week.
  • Ranks fourth in strokes-gained off the tee and first in approach the green, a format that equates to a comprehensive combination around a layout that requires ultimate strategy like Club de Campo.

TIP: Outright Winner

RAFA CABRERA BELLO

  • Ranks just outside the top 20 in the Race To Dubai (22nd) and heads back to his home country as a firm favourite looking for his first win since 2017.
  • Three top 15s including two top 10 finishes from his previous five European starts suggests he is in the type of form to please his home fans.
  • Ranks eighth in season stroke-average, showing his all-round game is in great shape to contend again this week.

TIP: Top 5 Finish

PABLO LARRAZABAL

  • The flamboyant Spaniard will thrive in front of his home fans and will be looking to climb the Race To Dubai rankings where he stands in 56th position.
  • A top 10 finish just three starts ago – his first since the end of May – suggests his form is in decent order for the final part of the season.
  • With ranking 34th in strokes-gained putting and 43rd around the green, a solid week tee-to-green will give him another good chance of a high finish.

TIP: Top 10 Finish

DAVID HORSEY

  • The four-time European Tour winner needs a high finish as he is without a top 10 in 2019.
  • His joint highest finish since March came in June's Andalucía Masters, something that could help reignite good vibes being around the Spanish fans.
  • The Englishman will need to drive the ball better this week - where he ranks 131st strokes-gained driving - with the course requiring strategy off the tee. If he does, then his putting (ranked 19th) will give him a good opportunity for a solid week.

TIP: Top 20 Finish

JAMIE ABBOTT

  • Challenge Tour player and world number 2073 has a great opportunity this week to earn big prize money and create a pathway to further starts on the main tour.
  • With just two cuts made from 12 starts on the Challenge Tour this season and a stroke average of 73.17, he’ll need to be at his very best this week to make a pay cheque.
  • However, as a player who knows how to win and go low with numerous wins on the European Satellite Tours, a good run could make his season.

TIP: Make Cut
