The European Tour returns to Club de Campo Villa de Madrid for the first time since 2019 with Jon Rahm bidding for a hat-trick of victories.

Current world number one and two-time defending champion Rahm headlines the tournament in Madrid

We have picked three value bets for this weekend's round of the European Tour.

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.


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 Ladbrokes Australia - 5 Units
Value Bet: Masahiro Kawamura Each-Way $41.00 at Neds - 1 Unit
Value Bet: Nicolai Hojgaard Each-Way $51.00 at Bookmaker - 1 Unit
