Bradley Dredge Is A Top Tip To Be First Round Leader At The Made In Denmark

The European Tour continues apace with the Made In Denmark tournament at Himmerland Golf and Spa Resort in Farso from Thursday and Thomas Pieters is the bookmakers' favourite as he returns to defend the title he won last year...

Matthew Southgate (each way) @ 40 / 1  
Rikard Karlberg (each way) @ 40 / 1  

The Head Of The Market

Pieters' victory here twelve months ago was enough to secure his place in Europe's Ryder Cup team and he arrives as a 9/1 favourite this time around (Betway). Pieters was undoubtedly the best player on a course that doesn't look ideally suited to his game in 2016 but we will be swerving his single-figure price this week as it is never easy to defend a title and he disappointed at the US PGA Championship on his last start.

Soren Kjeldsen is next best at 14/1 and how the Dane would love to win in front of his home crowd. He tied 2nd in 2015 and tied 8th in 2016, while he recently finished in the top-ten at the Scottish Open, but his strike-rate of one tournament win since 2009 is a concern.

The Selections

Bradley Dredge has a fine record on this course as he has finished 2nd, 6th, 2nd in his three appearances and he can be backed at 25/1 (Paddy Power). The Welshman finished in the top-fifteen at the Irish Open recently and the two-time European Tour winner will have no problems with the forecast rain at Himmerland, which is a linksy style course that weighs in at 7,382 yards

Dredge's results this year ensure we won't be backing him in the outright market (25/1) but he is a tempting 33/1 to be first round leader (Paddy Power).

The 44-year-old has a habit of making electric starts here as he has been in the top-five of the leaderboard after the first round in all three of his appearances in the Made In Denmark, including a share of the outright lead once. He boasts a first round scoring average of 65 in this event, while his first round average on the European Tour in 2017 is an impressive 69.61.
Tip #1: Bradley Dredge first round leader (each way) @ 33/1 with Paddy Power.

The Best Of The Rest

Matthew Southgate was our tip for the Paul Lawrie Match Play last week but a broken driver counted against him as he crashed out in the second round. The 28-year-old can bounce back to form after finishing in the top-six in two of his three previous stroke play starts - tied 2nd at the Irish Open and tied 6th at The Open Championship - and he is nicely priced at 40/1.
Tip #2: Matthew Southgate (each way) @ 40/1 with Betfred.

Finally, Rikard Karlberg has a decent record in Denmark as he has finished 9th and 14th in his past two visits, while his recent efforts in finishing 5th at the BMW International Open and 19th at the European Open bode well.
Tip #3: Rikard Karlberg (each way) @ 40/1 with Betfred.com.
