  • BookMaker.eu First played in 1989, the BMW International Open returns to the rotation after being cancelled last year due to COVID. It was the only game in town until a few years ago when another high-end German automaker joined the fray. Still, this event is near and dear to the hearts of many on the European Tour which is why we have another stellar field pegging it up at Golfclub Munchen Eichenried despite taking place after the U.S. Open. Fresh off his second straight runner-up finish in... 

  • BookMaker.eu There is no shortage of talent as the European Tour pegs it up this week in Germany for the BMW International Open. The tournament was shuttered last year due to COVID issues but resumes with U.S. Open runner-up Louis Oosthuizen positioned close behind opening favorite Viktor Hovland on the odds board. Sergio Garcia is third on the list with a major drop off in price following the top three. The trio competed last week in the States, as did several others among the field, but th... 

  • BookMaker.eu The European Tour has pushed the boundaries the last few years with some outside-the-box thinking when it comes to tournaments. Officials are at it again with this week’s Scandinavian Mixed, a combination of the Euro Tour and Ladies European Tour with players competing against each other for one sum of prize money and one trophy. I’m all for equality, but there’s a reason why there are separate Tour’s for both genders. The likelihood of the best female player toppling the field ... 

  • BookMaker.eu There is a reason why men and women have their own Tour. For one week that’s not the case as the European Tour and Ladies European Tour combine forces for the innovative Scandinavian Mixed. The field consists of 78 men and 78 women competing against each other for one prize fund and one trophy. The tournament was scheduled to debut last year but fell victim to the COVID pandemic. It resurfaced with Annika Sorenstam, one of the top female golfers to ever play the game, serving as... 

  • BookMaker.eu In a sign that we’re not completely over the COVID pandemic, the European Tour adjusted its schedule for this week’s Porsche European Open. Due to travel restrictions in Germany the tournament will now start on Saturday becoming a 54-hole event instead of the traditional 72 holes. The delayed start allows for golfers to clear travel protocols so we could actually have an event. Green Eagle Golf Courses in Hamburg will serve as host for a fourth straight playing with Paul Casey t... 

  • BookMaker.eu Due to COVID travel restrictions in and around Europe, this week’s Porsche European Open will see some significant changes. The European Tour event will play over three days starting on Saturday and consist of just 54 holes. The date change allows for a majority of players and support staff to enter Germany without dealing with quarantine issues. Still, the tournament has an exciting field led by betting favorite Paul Casey, who returns as defending champion following his one-sh... 

  • BookMaker.eu The European Tour is back in action this week for the Made in HimmerLand. Formerly known as Made in Denmark, the tournament has a new name but the field will tackle the same course. Following a one off at a different venue the Tour returned to its roots at Himmerland Golf and Spa Resort, where it was held for four years before moving for the 2018 playing. A COVID casualty last year, the tournament is back on the slate with Bernd Wiesberger set to defend his 2019 crown. The Austr... 

  • BookMaker.eu The European Tour returns for a new but old event this week with the Made in HimmerLand. Formerly known as Made in Denmark, the tournament is back on the schedule after being shuttered in 2020 due to COVID. With it comes a name change but the same HimmerLand Golf and Spa Resort course that yielded a 1-shot victory for Bernd Wiesberger in 2019. The defending champion hit the board as the second favorite behind Robert MacIntyre as the only players with shorter than 20/1 odds. The ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Following a three-week stay in paradise on the Canary Islands the European Tour heads to the British shores to start the UK Swing with the Betfred British Masters. First played in 1946, the tournament has added importance for the Brits on Tour, who view this as their major. The tournament took a hiatus following the 2008 edition, which was the last time at The Belfry. The iconic venue did make an appearance last season hosting the UK Championship, won by Rasmus Hojgaard in extra... 

  • BookMaker.eu The European Tour begins a nine tournament swing through the UK with this week’s Betfred British Masters. The event returns to The Belfry for the first time since 2008, though the iconic venue did host the UK Championship during last year’s COVID-challenged season. One of the oldest events on Tour, the British Masters made a successful return in 2015 after a six-year absence and has been a staple on the schedule ever since. Danny Willett serves as host this week with golfers get... 

  • BookMaker.eu The inaugural Canary Islands Championship wraps up the European Tour’s swing through the Canary Islands and is the second straight event played at Golf Costa Adeje. There’s been one theme over the last few weeks and that’s low scores with players easily handling the resort-style courses. Dean Burmester toyed with Adeje last week winning by five swings with a 25-under total. That matched the winning score of Garrick Higgo in the opening leg of the swing in the Gran Canaria Lopesa... 

  • BookMaker.eu The European Tour remains on the coast of Tenerife for this week’s Canary Islands Championship, the final leg of the Canary Islands Swing. Golf Costa Adeje will host for a second straight week with low scores being the topic during the stay on the islands. Dean Burmester emerged with a five-shot victory last week dissecting the layout to the tune of 25-under and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see players go even lower now that they have a few rounds on the course. Garrick Higgo, w... 

  • BookMaker.eu The middle leg of the Canary Islands Swing takes place this week with the renewal of the Tenerife Open. The tournament was last played 26 years ago at a different course and under a different name, but it is back. Golf Costa Adeje will serve as host in the first of back to back events at the venue, and it’s remarkably similar to last week’s tournament. The field attacks another resort layout after three players carded -20 or better at the Gran Canaria Lopesan Open. Garrick Higgo topped everyone with an impressive three-shot win to move up the odds board, though he’s positioned behind Antoine Rozner and Matthias Schwab on the current list. All three are featured in tournament matchups that should be exciting with scores once again expected to go low. Be sure to visit BookMaker.eu for a complete updated list of betting odds when you’re ready to place a wager. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The European Tour remains in the Canary Islands for this week’s Tenerife Open, the middle of three straight tournaments in the area and the first of back-to-backs at Golf Costa Adeje. The tournament is a revival of one that last took place in 1995 when it was known as the Turespana Open De Canaria. The field gets another resort layout that could lead to another massive performance like we saw from Garrick Higgo last week. At 25-under Higgo won the inaugural Gran Canaria Lopesan Open and was one of three players to score -20 or better. Higgo inched up the odds board opening as the third favorite behind Antoine Rozner and Matthias Schwab. Be sure to visit BookMaker.eu for a complete updated list of betting odds when you’re ready to place a wager. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu If you’re looking to wager on a straight up individual matchup winner this week the European Tour is the way to go. The inaugural Gran Canaria Lopesan Open kicks of the circuit’s Canary Island Swing and unlike the PGA team event in Louisiana, golfers will be going head-to-head against each other. Oddsmakers have positioned Antoine Rozner as the betting favorite for the event taking place at the breathtaking Meloneras Golf Course, though odds suggest a wide open field leading to ... 

  • BookMaker.eu A new addition to the schedule has the European Tour in the Canary Islands this week for the inaugural Gran Canaria Lopesan Open. The event kicks off the Canary Islands Swing that includes the next two tournaments in Tenerife. The Tour makes its first stop on the islands in more than 15 years with Meloneras Golf playing host. The resort course opened in 2006 and will present the usual challenges of a coastal layout. Antoine Rozner emerged as the betting favorite, however, odds s... 

  • BookMaker.eu The European Tour has toyed with the Austrian Golf Open since the first playing in 1990. The name and format have changed, though the host course has been the same Diamond Country Club since 2010. The tournament was first up last year when the Tour resumed play after the COVID shutdown and it’s moved to its earliest start on the calendar this year to make up for the shuttered Portugal Masters. This was a dual ranking tournament last year when Marc Warren toppled the field. Howev... 

  • BookMaker.eu It looks as though the Austrian Golf Open is becoming the go-to event when the European Tour is in a pinch. Last year the event was added to the schedule and became the first tournament when the Tour restarted after the COVID shutdown. Another scheduling snafu led to this year’s event, which takes place at Diamond Country Club just outside of Vienna this week. With the event hastily put together after the Portugal Masters was scrubbed, and The Masters just a few days old it isn’... 

  • BookMaker.eu The European Tour heads to Kenya for the first of back-to-back tournaments in the East African country. This week’s Magical Kenya Open made its debut on the ET in 2019 after years as a stop on the Challenge Tour and fell victim to the COVID pandemic last year. The field returns to Karen Country Club in Nairobi, which will also play host to the Kenya Savannah Classic next week. Kurt Kitayama opened as the betting favorite looking to become the first American golfer to win this ev... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Magical Kenya Open was first played in 1967 and formed part of the Challenge Tour beginning in 1991. It was elevated to the European Tour rotation in 2019 and moved to the Karen Country Club in Nairobi. With his victory in 2019, Guido Migliozzi is the defending champ after last year’s edition was canceled over COVID concerns. There has been a different winner in each of the last 27 playings and no two-time winners over that span. An American has never won this tournament, th... 

  • BookMaker.eu After a five week pause to the season the European Tour is back in session with this week’s Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. Playing alongside THE PLAYERS Championship on the PGA side has affected the field, but most of the fellas are happy to be playing. This event has undergone a number of changes over the years with a different slot on the schedule affecting the prize pool and field strength. For the second straight year golfers will attack the Education City Golf Club, which t... 

  • BookMaker.eu It’s been more than a month but the European Tour is back in business this week with the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. Playing opposite THE PLAYERS Championship on the PGA side, the tournament has taken a hit with the field with just a few golfers inside the world’s top 75 pegging it up at the Education City Golf Club in Doha. Thomas Pieters hit the board as the betting favorite, but his advantage could be negated by a lack of reps since COVID continues to wreak havoc with the ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The European Tour’s swing through the Arabian Peninsula continues this week in Saudi Arabia with the third playing of the Saudi International at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club. The stellar cast is loaded at the top with world No. 1 Dustin Johnson headlining the field as the prohibitive favorite. Fellow PGA Tour regulars Bryson DeChambeau, Tony Finau and last week’s Farmers Insurance Open winner Patrick Reed are also in attendance. They will have to contend with the best ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The opening slate of Middle East events opening the European Tour season continues this week with the third edition of the Saudi International. This event is proof that money talks with a number of high-profile PGA Tour players taking an appearance fee to peg it up at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club. OWGR No. 1 Dustin Johnson headlines the field and tops the odds board with fellow Americans Bryson DeChambeau, Tony Finau and Patrick Reed opening among the top five favorite... 

  • BookMaker.eu The second tournament of the European Tour season takes place this week with a potent field competing for the title at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. The oldest Middle East tournament on Tour will again be contested at the majestic Emirates Golf Club, which has served as host every year since 2001 and in all but two editions since the first playing in 1989. The field is highlighted by Abu Dhabi winner Tyrrell Hatton, who opened as the prohibitive betting favorite at online spor...
