Romancing Canada's Indigenous People



The PGA Tour is taking a break from golf this week, so I have no fantasy picks for the Golf Channel and PGA.

But across the pond, the European Tour is in full swing (pun intended!) as the Race to Dubai continues to heat up.  Everyone who is anyone is heading for Spjik, Netherlands to tee it up at The Dutch, a championship course designed by Scotland’s star golfer Colin Montgomerie.

France’s Romain Wattel will defend his title at The KLM Open. Unfortunately, the Netherlands’ star golfer Joost Luiten is sitting out his home tournament because he is recovering from much-needed wrist surgery. Joost, a six-time winner on the European Tour, will be very much missed.  I know I’ll miss him.  Joost is one of my favourite golfers!

Here are my fantasy picks:

European Tour – KLM Open

Andy Sullivan (England)
Søren Kjeldsen (Denmark)
Paul Dunne (Ireland)
Jorge Campillo (Spain)
Li Haotong (China)
Erik Van Rooyen (South Africa) *****

These five gentlemen have been high on the leaderboard as of late, so my fingers are crossed they’ll perform just as well at the KLM.  As for Eric, he’s ready for a win, so he’s my captain.  Let’s see if I can FINALLY rank a little bit higher on the fantasy points list this time.
