The Challenge Tour is set to enter the final stretch on the Road to Mallorca, and our golf expert Ben Coley has shared his top picks for the Open de Provence. With four selections, he has provided some betting tips for golf enthusiasts looking to place their bets on this event.
Beginning with Ugo Coussaud at 28/1, Coley believes that the Road to Mallorca leader has a good chance of leading the home challenge. Despite a missed cut in the Open de France, Coussaud has shown excellent form throughout the season and is a proven winner at this level. With his long-game in excellent shape, Coussaud is a strong contender for the title.
Next on Coley’s list is Borja Virto at 40/1. Although the Spaniard comes with some risks, he has been in good form on the Challenge Tour this year, with 15 cuts made out of 18 tournaments. Virto has also performed well in a few DP World Tour starts, and his top-fives at similar events make him a promising bet for the Open de Provence.
Oliver Lindell, a talented Finnish golfer, is another player to watch out for, according to Coley. Lindell has been getting close to his first Challenge Tour win, with two top-10 finishes in his last five starts. His strong performance at Qualifying School also indicates that he is in good form. At 66/1, Lindell offers good value for money and could make a strong showing at this event.
Finally, Coley suggests keeping an eye on Lars van Meijel, the 2019 champion of the Open de Provence. Despite some patchy results recently, van Meijel has shown glimpses of his earlier form and has been playing better than his results suggest. With a strong performance in Portugal and a step forward in the Swiss Challenge, van Meijel could be a dark horse in the tournament.
Overall, the Open de Provence presents an exciting opportunity for golf enthusiasts to place their bets. With these four carefully selected players, Coley offers his expert insight to help bettors make informed decisions.
