BMW International Open 2015 - Munich

Its a very short post this week as I'm feeling under the weather, not sure if it's due to DJ's "loss" last Sunday or not, but having thought about giving this week a miss I couldn't pass on some players chances this week.

First up for me is Darren Fichardt of South Africa @ 100/1. He's been in good form of late having posted 13-21-9 at the Nordea Masters, Irish Open and Open de Espana. Its taken awhile for him to settle on the Tour but a multiple winner on the Sunshine Tour, Darren is simmering for a win soon and it could be at Golfclube Munchen Eichenried where has posted three TOP10s in his six visits.

Second pick this week is Julien Quesne @ 66/1 despite poor course form. He's playing much better this year though and of late has posted 22-8-8-4 at the Lyoness, BMW PGA, China Open and Shenzhen International. (he did miss the cut at the Irish Open and Open de Espana). Ranks quite high for GIR, the Frenchman could be a dark horse this week.

I toyed about adding Matt Nixon or Tommy Fleetwood and either Matthew Fitzpatrick or Camillo Villegas but have opted to get onside with Bernd Wiesberger @ 25/1. Villegas can go low and could be worth a punt certainly at the price but the Austrian's declaration for his liking for the course has swung the vote. On top of that, he's in form and we can ignore the MC in his homeland last time out as he sent caddy ahead to Chambers Bay (where he also missed the cut) and paid the price with a high score in the opening round at The Lyoness. He was fourth here last time the event was staged on this course.

1.5 pts e/w B.Wiesberger @ 25/1
0.75 pts e/w J.Quesne @ 66/1
1 ps e/w D.Fichardt @ 100/1
