From the blustery, coastal links of St Andrews to the stunning Swiss Alps of Crans Montana, business is right back underway this week as the European Tour heads to Switzerland after an enthralling Open Championship.

The Crans-Sur-Sierre is one of the most scenic tournament venues worldwide. Golf was first played at Crans Montana around 1905, and by 1939 it hosted its first European Tour event. Its high altitude means the ball travels that little bit further and in the summer, the course is kept in spectacular condition despite it being covered in snow for half the year.

America’s David Lipsky won here last year with a score of 18-under but his form this year, T41 has been his best finish, represents why his odds are 125/1 for him to defend the title. Instead, 19th hole pick three players who we feel are safe(ish) bets for this week.
