Luiten hunting for home win
The European Tour returns to Kennemer for the first time in four years for this week's KLM Open.
The challenging links-style layout close to the coast was the venue for Seve Ballesteros winning his maiden Tour title as a teenager in 1976.
Simon Dyson is bidding for his third win at Kennemer since 2006, while Joost Luiten will hope to entertain his home fans in his national Open.
Luiten has a hit-and-miss record in the tournament and has missed five cuts out of eight, which suggests sometimes if he's not on his game the disappointment quickly kicks in and the focus goes.
However, on other occasions he's thrived in front of his home fans and he's playing well enough at the moment to suggest he can flourish again.
Hitting the fairways here this week is imperative and Luiten is 12th in Driving Accuracy this year and 14th in Greens In Regulation.
His second place at Kennemer in 2007 shows he likes the course and his ability to shoot low rounds will stand him in good stead on this track, making him a sound choice at 20/1 with Sky Bet.
Richie Ramsay was runner-up in this event last year and 26th in his only start at Kennemer in 2009, although he missed the cut in his defence of the Omega European Masters title last week.
But prior to that he was 10th at Gleneagles and his straight-hitting (he's fourth in Driving Accuracy this year) will be a big benefit here.
Ramsay is available at 66/1, while Anders Hansen keeps the ball in play better than most and, as you might expect, he's got some fine course form here.
The Dane (33/1) has finished 12th and 7th in his two knocks at Kennemer and before missing the weekend in Switzerland he was eighth at Celtic Manor and 17th at Gleneagles.
