With the USPGA Championships taking control of the golfing schedule this week, there's no alternative European tour or PGA Tour event but there is a little matter of a very important event in the form of the Trophee du Golf de Geneve in Switzerland. It's a 36 strong field in a shootout to get their card off the challenge tour to have full rights to the main European tour next year, as the challenge tour winds down. Eduardo Molinari, brother of Francesco is currently in pole position.
The Course is very short at less than 6,800 yards but is still a test. Course record is 62, set by Alex Noren and fellow Swede Martin Erlandsson. It is a treelined track.
FREE Trophee du Golf de Geneve picks:
Alert: With Robert Coles running away with this tournament before being forced to retire with injury, I emailed the bookmaker I placed the bet with expressing my displeasure and they kindly refunded all my bets on the event in the form of free bets with a 1 month expiry date, so this event is now deemed void on Nic's Picks.
-1.25pts E/W Jose Filipe Lima @ 28/1 places 1-4 (skybet) Coming off the back of a top 5 last week, capable of going low and 1 of the better talents on the Challenge tour this year. Very big price considering the field is only 36 deep.
-1.25pts E/W Robert Coles E/W @ 20/1 (skybet) Also coming off the back of a top 5 last week, Coles lead the challenge tour for a while and is looking to regain top spot
