Fleming Golf Tips RBC Heritage & Open de Espana
Words: Nick Fleming
A great finish to this season's first major the Masters resulted in Patrick Reed winning by one shot from Rickie Fowler and a resurgent Jordan Spieth!!! Two events this week the Spanish Open and RBC Heritage from USA.
Open de Espana
Bet before 6 am Thursday
Watch live on sky golf 11 am Thursday
Weather occasional rain
Winner will need this attribute: Accuracy
Paul Dunne 1 point win 22/1 I feel this Irishman is underrated, I thought he would be bigger odds but he's playing very well. I tipped him when he won the British Masters last season and he's a winner in waiting!!
Thomas Detry 1 point win 64/1 Talented Belgium player that is overdue a win he's often on the leaderboard come Sunday just needs to turn the 3rd a 4th places into wins??
Sam Horsfield 1 point win 42/1 A rapidly improving British player he's even contended on the bigger PGA tour events, I thought he would be bigger odds but still worth an interest?
Adrian Otaegui 1 point win 74/1 An improving young Spanish player who is under the radar, he won a match play event last season, he will relish playing on home soil.
David Lipsky 1 point win 119/1 This American is a regular on the European tour. He won in Switzerland a few years ago for me, so he's always someone I look at and this event suits good iron play. There is no advantage to the power players i.e. John Rahm!!

Weather: Possible rain and wind over the weekend
Attribute needed: Accuracy
1 point win Tyrrell Hatton 37/1 This Brit is like marmite. I love his passion and he appears to control his frustration much better, I can see him being a star in European Ryder Cup team.
1 point win Adam Hadwin 35/1 He won last season's Valspar Championship where I am pleased to say I backed him. He's been quiet since then but over last few weeks I have noticed a return to form. I thought he would be bigger odds but we still need him onside.
1 point win Kevin Kisner 42/1 A player I am in danger of following over the cliff but for once his lack of power off the tee won't be noticeable and his superb iron play will make him a strong contender.
1 point win Patrick Cantlay 37/1 One of the best young players to emerge from college golf in the last decade, he's had injuries and tragedy to contend with but he won the Shriners Open last season. In fact, he finished 3rd here and he's eager to make American Ryder Cup team.
1 point win Ollie Schniederjans 49/1 Tied 3rd here last season this American always worth a second look, no doubt he's underachieved but his turn to win is not far away.
