This week on the European Tour is the 100th Open de France, take a look at who the GM Tipster thinks will win
Open De France Golf Betting Tips
This week on the European Tour is the 100th Open de France, and this year it stands alongside the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in America.
You would expect that there would be a weaker field at Le Golf National, but as the European Tour has allowed for this event to count as two events come the end of the season tally there is an excellent group on show.
This has led to an excellent field being in attendance led by Rory McIlroy (9/2), Martin Kaymer (14/1) and Danny Willett (18/1).
Last season the event was won by Bernd Wiesberger and the Austrian defends this week, if you fancy him to do well again then you can get him at 22/1.
The Le Golf National will host the Ryder Cup in 2018 and is one of the toughest challenges on the European Tour with penal rough and plenty of water to avoid.

Open De France Golf Betting Tips Advised Bets
Matthew Fitzpatrick 4 points each way at 25/1 – This course demands accuracy from tee and fairway and Fitzpatrick’s game is built around these keys. Won at the start of June at the Nordea Masters he will be full of confidence to have another good week here.
Thongchai Jaidee 2 points each way at 50/1 – The man from Thailand is a horse for this particular course, having finished 10th and 2nd over the past two seasons. Is playing solid golf now after an early injury.
Alexander Noren 1 point each way at 70/1 – Was 12th last time out at the Nordea Masters and has also had two top 10s including at the devilishly tricky Valderrama. I like him at this price, and if anyone is going to break in from this far out then he could be the man.
Scott Hend 1 point each way at 125/1 – The Aussie is back out at the long numbers – has not reacted well after his Wentworth Sunday explosion, however he is such an awesome ball striker this course may actually suit his game again. Has had four top 10s and a win this season already on the European Tour.
