Open de Espana Championship Tips - Can Rahm win on home soil?

  • The Acciona Open de Espana Championship takes place between October 7-10, 2021
  • The tournament takes place at Club de Campo Villa de Madrid in Madrid
  • Jon Rahm is the defending champion
  • 3 contenders to win on Sunday?


The European Tourn returns to Club de Campo Villa de Madrid this weekend. The event was last held in 2019 where home favourite, John Rahm triumphed. 

Rahm returns as the world No.1 and a two-time defending champions to headline the tournament in Madrid.

We have picked three players who we feel could challenge for the title this time around.

Jon Rahm


Jon Rahm finished top of the leaderboard at the Open de Espana Championship in 2019 with a total of -22 under par for the tournament.

He has since gone onto greater heights claiming the world number one ranking and winning his first Major earlier this year at the 2021 U.S. Open.

In subsequent tournaments since his maiden major title, Rahm has finished T3, 3, 19 and 2. 

Although he didn't make the cut at the recent Fortinet Championship, the defending champion looks like a sure bet to claim his third consecutive Open de Espana Championship this weekend.

Masahiro Kawamura 


Masahiro Kawamura has been in great touch during the second half of this year. You can ignore his last outing at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship as he tends to struggle on the links courses.  

Before that, his results were 5, T3, T16, T55, T21, T5 and T17. 

In 2019, Kawamura finished a credible seventh in this tournament and could challenge Rahm. 

Nicolai Hojgaard


Nicolai Hojgaard has not put a foot wrong recently. In his last five outings of tournament golf, the Dane has had three top twenty finishes, including the victory at this year's Italian Open. He is value in Madrid.

Verdict

World number one Jon Rahm is favourite to claim the Open de Espana Championship this weekend, but deserves to be given his record in the event.

Masahiro Kawamura has the form to be a threat around the Club de Campo Villa de Madrid golf course and offers an each-way value bet.

Nicolai Hojgaard looks set to continue his recent run of form and also offers an each-way value bet.

Best Bet: Jon Rahm Win $3.25 at Bookmaker - 5 Units
Value Bet: Masahiro Kawamura Each-Way $41.00 at Betstar Australia - 1 Unit
Value Bet: Nicolai Hojgaard Each-Way $51.00 at Neds - 1 Unit
