  • BookMaker.eu If Sergio Garcia had any kind of game recently he’d be a lock in most matchups. That hasn’t been the case for the three-time winner of the Andalucia Masters and the field is wide open when the European Tour takes to the Real Club Valderrama this week. Jon Rahm is the betting favorite at online sportsbooks, but his history here is short and not very good. That sets up some intriguing matchup possibilities where money can be made. Below is a list of the matchups and odds.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The European Tour heads to Spain for the Andalucia Masters, and Sergio Garcia is heavily involved. Not only is he the tournament host, he’s also the three-time defending champion and opened as the second favorite behind Jon Rahm on the odds board at BookMaker.eu. Recent form has been ugly at best, but Garcia absolutely loves playing Real Club Valderrama and has to be considered no matter what. The tournament gets a change on the calendar, moving from its usual October date, and that could have a...

And the field has a number of players making the trip from California after competing in the U.S. Open, creating a strong lineup and enti... 

  • BookMaker.eu The GolfSixes was pretty cool and then there was the U.S. Open. This week the European Tour gets back into full swing with a decent field of players convening at the Golfclub Munchen Eichenried for the BMW International Open.

He didn’t fare so well at the Made in Denmark last month and his title defense here takes place on a different layout than his one-shot victory last year. The BMW International... 

  • BookMaker.eu Leave it to the European Tour to come up with innovative ways to conduct a golf tournament. The third edition of the GolfSixes will be held outside of the United Kingdom for the first time when the tournament moves to Oitavos Dunes Golf Club on the Portuguese seaside resort of Cascais.

The Danish duo of Lucas Bjerregaard and Thorbjorn Olesen return to their homeland after taking part in last week’s PGA Championship while defending champion Matt Wallace is coming off his best finish at a major.

  • BookMaker.eu The shifting of major dates on the PGA Tour has a ripple effect on the European Tour, and that’s evident this week with the Made in Denmark moving to the end of May from the usual August slot. The Euro circuit is back on track after breaking for last week’s PGA Championship and the Danish duo of Lucas Bjerregaard and Thorbjorn Olesen return to their homeland after taking part in the second major. Defending champion Matt Wallace is the betting favorite at +765 and was the only European to place a... 

  • BookMaker.eu The European Tour has also been affected with the second major of the PGA circuit on tap next week. Many players use the week before to reenergize and the Betfred British Masters will be minus some big names. However, with the help of the best British golfers, the event has had a renaissance since it was revived in 2015. Brits sit atop the odds board with tournament host Tommy Fleetwood the betting favorite. He’s followed by Tyrrell Hatton, Matt Wallace and defending champ Eddie Pepperell. There...

  • BookMaker.eu The 25th playing of the Volvo China Open takes place on a new track when the European Tour tees it up at Genzon Golf Club in Shenzhen from May 2-5. The layout isn’t entirely new to the Tour as it played host to the 2014 edition and the Shenzhen International from 2015-2017. The field includes a number of China’s best golfers with several matched up against each other on the matchup odds list. Haotong Li opened as the betting favorite, but with long odds, the oddsmakers are saying the field is fa... 

  • BookMaker.eu The European Tour heads to China this week for the 25th playing of the Volvo China Open. The tournament gets a new host this year with the field teeing it up at the Genzon Golf Club from May 2-5. The previous three playings were at Topwin Golf and Country Club.

  • BookMaker.eu Coming off its Easter Holiday break, the European Tour returns to action this week in Morocco for the Trophee Hassan II, contested on the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam layout for a fifth consecutive year.

The field is watered down as many of the higher-ranked players avoid this stop with two PGA events taking place simultaneously. Defending champion Matt Wallace is in Texas for the WG... 

  • BookMaker.eu It’s one last chance for players to claim victory before the European Tour goes on hiatus until the end of April. The second of two back-to-back tournaments in Asia has the European Tour travelling to New Delhi for the Hero Indian Open, contested on the Gary Player course at the DLF Golf and Country Club.
