THIS week the European Tour returns to the Regnum Resort in Antalya, Turkey for the third year running.
A par-71 course measuring nearly 7,200 yards. Not a difficult track as winning scores in the last two years have been 18 and 20 under par so players that can make a run of birdies will be in contention.
Ryder Cup players Rose, Fleetwood and Olesen tee up this weekend and all have different agendas. Rose wanting to regain No.1 slot in the world, Fleetwood aiming to win the Race to Dubai for the second year running and Olesen a previous champion here would love to do it again.
They are the first three in the betting but I don’t think any value lies with them although come Sunday evening I expect them all to be in the mix again.
Instead I have three to follow who represent better value. First is Lucas Bjerregaard who is a power hitter and a birdie machine has two Tour wins to his name and will want to be involved on Sunday afternoon. Just outside the top 50 in the world and a good showing here will get him inside the top 50.
Second is Kiradech Aphibarnrat from Thailand who has solid course form (6th last year) and showed with a 4th-place finish last week he can be in the mix again.
Third is Ryan Fox from New Zealand, a consistent performer in the Rolex Series of events was unlucky to lose in a play-off in the Dubai Duty Free to Russell Knox and will be looking to record his maiden Tour victory this week.
