GOLF BETTING: KLM OPEN PICKS
The KLM OPEN will be played at Kennemer GC in Holland. Kennemer GC is a short, Links Style golf course beside the sea, where the wind is always a factor. Generous enough fairways, although severly undulating, position off the tee is key here to be able to access the pins. Distance control and accurate Irons are crucial to success here and that's why Thomas Levet is a standout pick for the KLM Open. Greens are small and will run pretty slow(10.5), rough is not as big as last year due to dry weather but seriously errant tee shots will leave you in double or even triple bogey territory.

Free KLM OPEN golf betting picks:
-1pt E/W Thomas Levet @ 25/1 - Tee shot accuracy, Iron accuracy, distance control, small, slow greens - Thomas Levet must be licking his lips. Won earlier in the year in Spain on a similar set up.
-0.75pts E/W Chris Wood @ 28/1 - Talented all round game, current form and judging by his Open performance is a fan of links golf
-0.75pts E/W John Bickerton @ 66/1 - Big price for a multiple winner on the European golf tour, with course AND current form behind him.
-0.75pts E/W Marcus Brier @ 40/1 - Great form on this course, loves links golf and been simmering recently after a monster 2 rounds (-16)on a links in qualifying for the British open. Maybe this is the week he gets the shackles off again
Sleeper watch (big/huge priced value outsiders):
Wil Besseling, a recent graduate from the challenge tour where he showed some real talent and has also shown flashes on the main tour this year, is not in the best of form right now (hence some firms going 300/1) but he is the type of player who can find something out of nowhere and by his own admission, being on the main tour is just a dream, so being back in his homeland this week, he may pull something out of the bag. PP go 16/1 on a top 20 finish.
Jose Manuel Lara has had a decent season and 66/1 means he falls into the 'sleeper' category but he really shouldn't. Some good form this season and has challenged hard a few times, he could very well be a factor on this course. Skybet go 5/2 top 20.
-1.5pts Wil Besseling top 20 finish @ 16/1
-2.5pts Jose Lara top 20 finish @ 5/2
