Daily Fantasy European Tour – Omega European Masters

The European Masters hosts one of the strongest fields on the European Tour, as the stars jostle for position in the final stages of the Race to Dubai. 

Last year’s champion Danny Willett will be hoping fond memories of the Swiss alps can spark a return to form. The Englishman has tailed off since winning the Masters, and could do with a confidence boosting week ahead of the Ryder Cup.

Given the high altitude venue length off the tee will be at less of a premium. Accurate iron play was the key to Willett’s victory last year, as he finished second to runner up Matt Fitzpatrick in that category. With the winning score usually somewhere between 18 to 20 under, putting will also be a deciding factor.

High Priced Options

Tyrell Hatton (€20.4m): Hatton has finished 3rd in the last two years at this venue. He’s also had a terrific summer so far. The Englishman lies 8th in the Race to Dubai after three consecutive top ten finishes including 2nd at the Scottish Open. That combination of form and venue makes him close to a must own this week.

Matthew Fitzpatrick (€20.6m): Last year’s European Masters runner up missed the cut last week, but had two top ten finishes in his previous two tournaments. The young Englisman hits greens in regulation at a 75% clip. He’s inconsistent, but if he fires this week a win is a distinct possibility.

Mid Priced Options

Benjamin Hebert (€14.2m): Hebert found some form over the weekend in Denmark, producing rounds of 66 and 68 in the final two rounds to move up into a tie for 13th. The Frenchman is one of the more accurate iron players on tour (8th in GIR). He should be able to produce a decent showing this week.

David Lipsky (€10.9m):  Lipsky may be the most undervalued player in the field. The American finished 6th and 3rd in his last two tournaments and won at this venue in 2014. He finished in the top 20 last year, proving the win was no fluke.

Low Priced Options

Paul Lawrie (€9.0m): Lawrie has put together a couple of solid tournaments in a row over the last couple of weeks. He finished t-15th in Denmark last week and looks the best he’s looked all season. The Scot is worth a pick as one of your cheapest options.

Renato Paratore (€8.2m): The young Italian has racked up a consistent run of form on tour, making his last four cuts. Despite not being a particularly accurate driver he managed a top 25 at this venue last year.
