Joost Luiten Ranks As A Best Bet For The Lyoness Open

The Head Of The Betting
The tournament returns to this 7,458 yard, par-72 course for an eighth year running and it is a venue that the bookmakers' favourite, Bernd Wiesberger, knows well. The Austrian won his home tournament in 2012 and he has secured three other top-tens in his past six visits, with Bet 365 pricing him 5/1.
That price is plenty short enough for the highest ranked player in the field and there will be plenty of pressure on him on home soil, while you get the impression that this is a trip to Europe he could do without as he gears up for next week's US Open.
The field in Austria is relatively week and we prefer to side with course specialist Joost Luiten, who has gone 3-1-3-6 in his past four appearances in Atzenbrugg. A five-time winner on the European Tour, the Dutchman missed a cut for the first time this season at the Nordea Masters but he had been admirably consistent before that and we are happy to back a 'horse for the course' at 11/1 (Bet 365).
Tip #1: Joost Luiten (each way) @ 11/1 with Bet 365.
There are few better players with putter in hand in Europe than Luiten and he is joined toward the head of the betting market by another who boasts a decent course record, with Gregory Bourdy available at 20/1 after finishing in the top-20 in all five of his outings at the Diamond Country Club, albeit he has never finished better than sixth.
The Best Of The Rest
Meanwhile, Julien Suri is a player who is worth keeping an eye on as the American has been tearing things up on the Challenge Tour of late, winning his first title in the Czech Republic and securing two other top-three finishes in his last four outings.
Suri is a relatively short 30/1 this week, while we prefer to side with another young rising star in Zander Lombard. The 22-year-old led the Lyoness Open after 54 holes before eventually tying for 5th last year and we are backing the recent Rocco Forte Open runner-up to come good following an excellent eighteen months that has seen him secure seven top-fifteen finishes and a maiden appearance at the Open Championship.
Tip #2: Zander Lombard (each way) @ 50/1 with Betfred.
Finally, Miguel Angel Jimenez is gearing up for his first outing on the European Tour since visiting Dubai earlier this year and the Spaniard has a close affinity with Austria as he now resides there. It is worth noting that he has finished in the top-20 in all six of his appearances in Austria, including a tie for 5th on his last visit in 2014, and the veteran has been in decent touch on the Champions Tour as he ranks third on the money list.
Tip #3: Miguel Angel Jimenez (each way) @ 45/1 with Betfred.com.
