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.

Need to Know
The pros get another short resort-style layout in Golf Costa Adeje, which they should once again devour. It’s listed at 6,857 yards and par 71, which is a touch longer than what the field played last week at Meloneras. The fairways are wide and the greens are big with coastal gusts serving as the only defense. Back in 2003 the Open de Espana was played here with scores dropping into the -20s, so it will take something similar to emerge as the individual titlist. Some players were able to make up ground last week and that should be easier in theory on a course that has five par-5s, but it’s always tough when the scoring is low.
Tenerife Open Matchup Picks
Maximilian Kieffer -111 vs. Victor Dubuisson
Kieffer is playing the best golf of his career and is poised to go one better after two straight runner-up showings. He was a machine last week at Meloneras carding a 22-under to finish behind only Garrick Higgo. And that came after a tough playoff loss in Austria, so the mental part of his game looks to be in good shape. There’s always the chance a difficult stretch catches up to him, but Kieffer had been showing promise and I’m riding him on another scoreable layout.
Renato Paratore +138 vs. Connor Syme
Both golfers were impressive in their recent starts for different reasons. It was a tough decision to go against Syme, who had middle rounds of 61-62 at Meloneras to finish T5. However, Paratore’s performance at the Austrian Open was even more special and I think sets him up for a strong outing. In more demanding conditions on a tougher course, the Italian overcame an opening 78 to finish T12 and he’s looking forward to the ripe conditions and easier course on the islands.
Kurt Kitayama -122 vs. Justin Harding
Kitayama didn’t play poorly last week he just didn’t go as low as others and was a cut casualty. A second round 65 couldn’t even save him. I still like him to bounce back on a similar layout since he’s been one of the most consistent players on Tour for the past several months. I was hesitant when I saw his price, but realizing he’s one of the top players in the field made the decision a little easier.
Laurie Canter +108 vs. Jamie Donaldson
I’ve backed Canter in other events and it’s paid off for me so I’m sticking with him despite the fact he hasn’t competed in a few weeks. At least he’s playing a course that won’t rattle him and he’s always shown the ability to do well on courses that yield low scores. Canter can make birdies with the best of them and he should take advantage of the par 5s with his long, accurate drives. Like I said, the only concern is his inactivity, but I’ll take the plus odds and hope that’s not an issue.
Garrick Higgo +123 vs. Matthias Schwab
You always get the potential hangover effect after winning the previous tournament and that’s what Higgo is against. He’s young enough to not let that bother him and should again be in the mix in a similar situation. Higgo navigated Meloneras expertly to a three-shot win and while he may not go back-to-back there’s a good chance he’s in the running. And at this price it’s hard not to back him in this matchup.
