Golf: Ace’s Irish Open Tips


THE Irish Open moves around every year and this time it is being staged on the Palmer Ryder Cup Course, The K Club, County Kildare.

Ace Venturer says: “The 72-par course is parkland with plenty of water to avoid. For this great track, which hosted the Ryder Cup 10 years ago, I think accuracy, GIR and putting are going to be important.

“Taking that into consideration Joost Luiten ticks all the boxes. His driving accuracy is 63.5% (41st), GIR of 74.4 (12th) and putting of 29.5 (102nd) so looks pretty good. Not only that but his form is really good.

“He has six top-10 finishes from 10 outings this season, which includes two seconds, two T5s and a sixth. Think this course will suit him and worth a shout.

“I also like the look of Rafa Cabrera Bello. He is another who is in a rich vein of form with two T2s and a third this year. His GIR is 72.8% (21st), putts per round of 29.6 (115th) and driving accuracy of 57.1% (105th), although the fairways are quite generous this year so the final stat might not be such a problem.

“Scott Hend has been in great form this year albeit mostly in Asia. He won the Thailand Classic and has three further top-10 finishes. With form GIR stats of 68.5% (67th) and ppr of 29 he is worth a gamble. He’s been there or thereabouts for me recently and hopefully he can transfer his Asian form to Ireland.”
