Valderrama Course Form Will Be Key For The Returning Andalucia Masters

The Andalucia Masters returns to the European Tour calendar for the first time since 2011 and the third edition of this tournament at the Valderrama Golf Club in Sotogrande, Spain, has attracted a decent field...

Spanish Favourites

Sergio Garcia won the previous renewal of the Andalucia Masters back in 2011 and the tournament host has a great record at Valderrama as he has finished in the top-ten in nine of his past ten competitive visits.

The testing 6,991-yard course has previously hosted the Volvo Masters on sixteen occasions, as well as the 1997 Ryder Cup and the 2016 Open de Espana.

Garcia, the US Masters champion, is a 5/1 favourite and he is joined at the head of the market by Jon Rahm, who plays a competitive round on this course for the first time, while Shane Lowry is available at 16/1 despite missing the cut in Italy last time out.

The Selections

Our first pick for this week's event is Soren Kjeldsen though as the Dane should be fresh as he prepares to make his first start since tying for 23rd at the Made In Denmark. Kjeldsen has a close affinity with Valderrama as he won the Volvo Masters there in 2008 and he tied 4th at the Open de Espana last year, meaning he has now finished in the top-four in four of his five visits.
Tip #1: Soren Kjeldsen (each way) @ 20/1 with Betfred - 1/4 odds on 5 places.

Alejandro Canizares has also performed well at Valderrama in the past as he has finished no worse than 21st in three visits (21-7-11). The Spaniard tends to perform well on home soil and he should be full of confidence after tying for 15th in Italy last week, with a big performance in Spain very much needed as the man who is 132nd in the Race To Dubai rankings bids to secure his playing privileges for next season.
Tip #2: Alejandro Canizares (each way) @ 50/1 with Betfred.com

Padraig Harrington has racked up six successive top-twenty finishes at Valderrama and the three-time major winner tends to produce performances at certain courses. Harrington, who tied 4th at the Scottish Open, is capable of springing a surprise and it was twelve months ago that he pulled off an almighty upset by winning the Portugal Masters.
Tip #3: Padraig Harrington (each way) @ 70/1 with Bet 365 - 1/4 odds on 5 places.

James Morrison, who is 101st in the Race To Dubai, could also do with a strong showing here and he often enjoys these tight, tree-lined courses. Morrison thrives in Spain as he has won the Spanish Open and secured two other top-fours in the past, including a tie for 4th at Valderrama in 2016. The Englishman can be backed at 100/1 with Betfred.
Tip #4: James Morrison (each way) @ 100/1 with Betfred.
