This weeks European Tour event heads to Holland for the KLM Dutch Open and makes a return to Kennemer Golf Club after a 4 year stint at Hilversumche. The course is a links style lay out which at 6626 yards is very short by modern standards and like most links courses the wind will be its biggest defence this week but the early indications suggest that it may be a calm week weather wise so it should a birdie fest. Previous winners since 2006 have been Ross Fisher, Darren Clarke and Simon Dyson twice.

RAPHAEL JACQUELIN: 75/1 EW @ Winner
Raphael has had a strange old season in which he has seen him been bang average for most of it but has still managed to bag a win at El Saler in the Open de Espana which like this week was also a links course and Raphael's other top 10 finish (T8th) was again on a links course at the Scottish Open and looking back at 2012 Raphael again produced some of his best results on links courses T5th at the Dunhill Links and T7th at the links at Fancourt in the Volvo Golf Champions. He also played this course for the only time back in 2008 and finished a reasonable T26th in which was one of his poorest seasons on tour.
DAVID HORSEY: 75/1 EW @ Winner
David is always a player that i'm comfortable backing when courses are on shorter side and this week seems ideal for him he missed the cut last week in Switzerland but that's easily overlooked as he's missed the last 3 cuts at the European Masters but its his form before last week which has got my attention he's gone T24th,T17th,T14th in the 3 starts previous which suggests he is building up to a big week sooner rather than later like Rapael he also played well at the Open de Espana finishing inside the top 5.
PAUL WARING: 70/1 EW @ Winner
I've backed Paul the last couple of weeks and i'm going to give him a final chance this week, Paul is a player that enjoys links golf and some of his better results on the European Tour have come on these layouts he was T4th this year at El Saler, T10th at Portrush last year and has put in some decent performances at the Dunhill Links Champinship he also played at Kennemer for the only time in 2009 and finished 12th, despite last weeks missed cut he's had a solid year and has amassed 7 top 10 finishes so far and he could be a solid each way bet this week.
CRAIG LEE: 80/1 EW @ Winner
Craig will surely full into this event full of confidence after just missing out on his first title last week after losing out to Thomas Bjorn in a playoff he also managed a hugely impressive 61 (-10) on the Saturday. He was leading going into the final round at El Saler earlier in the season until a final round of +6 relegated him into a tie for 21st but after watching him this weekend he seems to of learnt his lesson from that and should he be in contention again this week i have faith that he can get the job done his best finish last year also came at a links course where he finished T7th at Portrush. I reckon this course and tournament has come at the perfect time for Craig and could well be in the mix again at a huge price.
