Austrian Open: Nino Bertasio
Has two top-10s at this venue and ranked third for strokes gained tee-to-green at Savannah Classic. Finished top-20 on last three European Tour starts and could finally bag maiden win.
Nino Bertasio is without a professional win in 189 starts but he arrives in Austria in rare form. Last time out that the Savannah Classic he ranked third in strokes gained tee-to-green and was first in driving distance averaging 358 (altitude) yards off the tee!
This calendar year the Italian has finished 35-41-MC-19-12-10, with the first three of those starts coming in better company during the Desert Swing.
Conditions this week should favour the longer hitter more than usual; Diamond Country Club measures almost 7,500 yards and the forecast is cold and wet meaning the ball won’t travel far through the air or on the ground.
Bertasio record in this event is T19-T10-WD and he looks a solid bet if he continues his excellent form from last month.
