Levy And Bourdy Are Our French Fancies For The Inaugural GolfSixes

The European Tour will attempt to 'jazz' golf up with the inaugural edition of the GolfSixes this weekend, as 32 players head to the Centurion Club in St Albans, England, on Saturday and Sunday...

Tips France To Win    Best Bet @ 8 / 1  

The Format

The brand new tournament is hoping to pull in the punters with a new format that features sixteen teams of two players, who are divided into four groups of four.

Each teams plays one another over the course of six holes in a 'greensomes' format, whereby each team's member drives off the tee before choosing the best tee shot and alternating their shots from there on in.

Teams get three points for a win and one point for a draw, with the top-two from each group going through to the quarter-finals on Sunday, which will be followed by the semi-finals, 3rd/4th place play-off and final.

The Betting

The six holes format ensures the Centurion Golf Club will play as a par-24 and 2,276 yards, with each individual hole placing a premium on accuracy, power and speed.

It will be the first time that Centurion has hosted a European Tour event since it opened in 2013 and home favourites, Chris Wood and Andy Sullivan, head the betting at 5/1 (Bet Victor). The English pair are the highest ranked players in the field and the Ryder Cup teammates did tie 13th together at the World Cup last year.

However, their price is a little short for our liking and we prefer to side with the France team of Gregory Bourdy and Alexander Levy. Both players are in good form, with Bourdy tying for 3rd at the Shenzhen International recently, and Levy secured his fourth European Tour title at the China Open last weekend.

Confidence will be high in the French ranks and the adventurous approach of Levy should be suited to this game, while the consistency of Bourdy should serve them well.
Tip: France to win @ 8/1 with Coral.

The Best Of The Rest

Other teams to look out for include Thailand (9/1 with Paddy Power), who will be represented by a couple of players who have won eleven European Tour titles between them, with Thongchai Jaidee and Kiradech Aphibarnrat set to tee up.

Denmark won the World Cup last year but Thorbjorn Olesen will team up with Lucas Bjerregaard instead of Soren Kjeldsen this weekend, while serial match play experts, Spain, are represented by Alejandro Canizares and Pablo Larrazabal, who is in great form with results of 13-11-3 from his past three outings.

Finally, Richie Ramsay and Marc Warren aren't in great touch but Scotland demand respect, with Warren winning the 2007 World Cup.
