This week’s European Tour event is the Lyoness Open at Diamond Country Club, Atzenbrugg, Austria and, with home advantage, Bernd Wiesberger can continue his excellent run of results in the tournament. Wiesberger failed to recover from an opening round 79 when missing the cut in the Lyoness Open last year, but three top-five finishes in his previous four appearances, including a win in 2012, have seen the tall Austrian installed as 13/2 joint-favourite, alongside Dutchman Joost Luiten, by bet365.
Wiesberger has enjoyed a successful, if unspectacular, year so far, finishing in the money in 10 out of 11 European Tour events, including four top 20 finishes. His latest effort was a solid tied-15th at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, six shots behind eventual winner Chris Wood. Once again, an opening round of 76 put him on the back foot, but subsequent rounds of 68, 71 and 70 ensured another decent payday and, back in his native Austria, he should give us a good run for our money.
Selection: Bernd Wiesberger (13/2 with bet365) to win outright
