Big Hitting Nicolas Colsaerts To Thrive At The Nordea Masters

We tipped Francesco Molinari each-way at 18/1 en route to his runner-up effort at the BMW PGA Championship last week and we've got four juicy bets for this week's European Tour event, The Nordea Masters...

The Head Of The Market

The Masters Course at Barseback Golf and Country Club in Malmo, Sweden, will host the Scandinavian tournament for a tenth time, albeit it is the first time it has hosted since 2009.

Open champion Henrik Stenson built up for his home event with a tie for 3rd at Wentworth last week and he did finish runner-up at this course thirteen year ago, albeit his record on home soil isn't impressive enough for us to consider the 5/1 on offer.

Alexander Noren is next best at 8/1 following his brilliant final round at Wentworth on Sunday, where he fired a course record 62 to claim the BMW PGA Championship. The Swede is a two-time winner of the Nordea Masters (2011 and 2015) but we prefer to seek out some each-way value.

Westwood, who has won this tournament three times during his illustrious career, tied 14th last week and could go well, while the sheer length of this 7,729 yard track might make life difficult for defending champion Matthew Fitzpatrick.

The Selections

Kiradech Aphibarnrat has been playing some very decent golf this year as the three-time European Tour winner has secured six top-25s in his past nine starts. The Thai star has racked up four top-fifteen efforts, including in each of his last two outings, and he looks to be over-priced at 50/1 (Betfred).
Tip #1: Kiradech Aphibarnrat (each way) @ 50/1 with Betfred.

Aphibarnrat is no slouch when it comes to distance off the tee and driving distance is likely to prove to be a very important statistic this week, which brings us nicely to our three other selections.

The big-hitting Belgian, Nicolas Colsaerts, has a decent record on Scandinavian soil as he won the SK Golf Challenge in Finland during his time on the Challenge Tour, while his last two appearances at the Nordea Masters have yielded finishes of 7th and 3rd.

Furthermore, the two-time European Tour winner tied 3rd at the BMW PGA Championship thanks to a final round 65 on Sunday and he looks very decent value at 55/1.
Tip #2: Nicolas Colsaerts (each way) @ 55/1 with Betfred.com.

Meanwhile, they don't come much bigger off the tee than Scott Hend and the Australian is well worth having on side at a triple-figure price. Hend, who tied 4th at the Nordea Masters in 2011, arrives in decent nick as he tied for 6th in Thailand before a superb 69 on Sunday secured him a top-25 finish at Wentworth.
Tip #3: Scott Hend (each way) @ 100/1 with Betfred bookmakers.

Finally, there will be plenty of supporters from Denmark making the short trip across to Malmo this week so this could feel like a home tournament for Dane, Lucas Bjerregaard. The 25-year-old has looked like a European Tour winner in waiting and he has been admirably consistent in making the cut in eight of the ten tournaments he has played this year, with the Masters course likely to suit.
Tip #4: Lucas Bjerregaard (each way) @ 150/1 with Betfred.
