Golf Betting Preview and Tips for the HNA Open de France
March 2017 saw Jon Rahm, from Spain, join the European Tour, and galleries will be able to inspect him thoroughly in the upcoming weeks as he begins as the HNA Open de France’s star attraction.
Rahm is ranked no. 11 worldwide, and is looking at a 14/1 shot at glory on the first look since his days as an amateur player at Le Golf National, the host venue for the Ryder Cup in 2018. The question is whether or not he should be given another chance right after the US Open.
Rahm’s Sulks a Possible Cause for Alarm
While Rahm’s missing the cut at Erin Hills is not unduly alarming, the bad behaviour he displayed afterwards may well be. He scowled and sulked his way through the 36 holes, intimating at all times that he was more than ready to wrap a 7-iron around the nearest bystander after each of his wayward shots.
Divas Have No Place on the Sports Field
Everyone has welcomed the Spanish player’s promise of brilliance, but this tendency to tantrums needs to nipped in the bud. He simply cannot behave like a tired toddler each time things do not go his way –Le Golf National is peppered with pitfalls, and he must find a way to handle these with grace and aplomb.
The golfing and betting public have very high hopes for him, but it is becoming more and more evident that his patience is regularly tested during games, and he will need to find some balance.
The Venue Set to Test Players
The venue is widely regarded as 1 of the best played on Tour all season, and offers players a wonderful test. Winning score totals don’t ever spiral out of control, and any kind of bad weather can make this an intimidating event, with single-figure under par proving more than good enough in 4 out of the last 7 renewals.
Wind and rain are forecast for all 4 days, so some veteran common sense, a good knowledge of the course, and lots of patience to keep at it will help players through.
While there are certainly some flashier names to be seen, English Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter look likely to make a good impact on an atypical outing this side of the world as they begin their build-ups to the Royal Birkdale Open Championships.
