TSZ TIPS

RASMUS HOJAARD

  • 20-year-old Rasmus Hojgaard is now a three-time winner on the European Tour after claiming a hugely impressive success at the Omega European Masters, seeing off a quality opponent in the form of Bernd Wiesberger.
  • Having also finished third in his previous tournament, Hojaard looks in superb nick and while another finish in the top five will be a tall order in a strong field, the young Dane certainly makes appeal to continue his excellent form.

TIP: Top 5 finish (7/1)

HENRIK STENSON

  • Veteran Henrik Stenson has finished in the frame in back-to-back tournaments on the European Tour, backing up his tied-fourth place at the D+D Real Czech Masters by going one better to finish third at the Omega European Masters last week.
  • The Swede has endured a frustrating year on the PGA Tour but he looks more at home on the Euro Tour and his quality can shine through in this competitive field to come out on top with his big price making great appeal each way.

TIP: Winner e/w (33/1)

SEAN CROCKER

  • Sean Crocker has found some consistency of late amidst a couple of missed cuts with the American finishing inside the top ten on three of his last five outings, as well as two top five finishes in the last two tournaments.
  • After tying for second in Prague, he was able to back that up with a tied-fourth finish in Crans Montana last week and having shown his ability to get into the placings, a top 20 finish should be within his grasp here.

TIP: Top 20 finish (21/10)
