The Porsche European Open Golf Betting Tips
Green Eagle Golf Courses, North Course, Winsen, Germany. Par 72, 7,544 Yards
Following on from last week’s 100/1 place courtesy of Adri Arnaus at the European Masters at Crans-Sur-Sierre we move on to Germany, and the Porsche European Open at Green Eagle golf club in Winsen. Some 40 miles south of Hamburg, and designed by the venue’s owner Michael Blesch, Green Eagle consists of the North & South courses, with the former being used as the venue for this week’s tournament.
The North course was opened in 1999 and substantially toughened and lengthened in 2017 ahead of its first hosting of this prestigious event in the same year. Although a long venue (it can play up to an eye watering 7,830 yards), Green Eagle North is open and relatively flat. The challenge here comes in the length along with substantial, punitive, bunkering, and water in play on all but one hole. Long, accurate, driving is a big advantage to the players here, both in order to find the fairways, and to keep away from the hazards that line the majority of fairways. For the approach shots, the greens are large, undulating, and soft; giving the long high ball flight players an advantage over the field.
Length is not the only advantage here. An all round good long game with accurate driving help, with both strokes gained off the tee, and greens in regulation, statistics being crucial for those looking to contend this week. Big numbers can easily be run up by any player at any time, including the longer hitters should they be erratic. Straight hitting, and avoiding Green Eagle’s large number of hazards, will be the key this week.
