MADE IN DENMARK
Location: Farso, Denmark
Course: Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort
The European Tour is at Himmerland Golf and Spa Resort this week for the Made In Denmark. Himmerland has always played host to this tournament, except for last year when it was contested at Silkeborg Ry GC. The links style course is undulating and exposed, with few water hazards. Wind is the primary defense of the course. Past results have shown good ball striking and a hot putter are needed to finish at the top. The scores get low at Himmerland; -19 was the winning score in 2017. This week we will target in form golfers who can score in the wind and golfers that have good course history at Himmerland.

DraftKings Picks (with odds)
Jordan Smith - $10,600 (16/1)
There are many great choices in the top tier, and it is difficult to pass on on defending champ Matt Wallace, yet I am going with Smith. He is the only golfer in the $10,000 and above range who didn't compete in the PGA Championship. I think the fresh legs and mind will be an advantage for him this week. He is coming in with great recent form, with three top-10s in his last four starts. He ranks eighth on tour in greens in regulation. This will be his first time at Himmerland Golf and Spa Resort, but has plenty of experience on this style of course.
Thomas Detry - $9,000 (33/1)
Detry has made eight of nine cuts this season and comes to Himmerland following a T15 at Betfred British Masters. He's had good results at this tournament, T7 last year and T14 in 2017 on this course. Detry is ranked 16th on tour in birdies and 19th in putts per GIR. He is ninth in the field in fantasy points per game.
Benjamin Hebert - $8,800 (40/1)
Hebert's season has been up and down. He missed the cut last time out at Betfred British Masters, but finished solo second the week prior at the China Open. His course history at Himmerland is fantastic. He finished T6 in 2017, T13 in 2016 and T14 in 2015. He is ranked 85th on tour in greens in regulation and 59th in birdies.
Lasse Jensen - $6,600 (250/1)
There is significant risk diving this low in the pricing, but if you want to roster a couple of the top golfers together Jensen is worth a look. He has made three cuts in a row on tour this season, finishing T30 last time out at Betfred Masters. Prior to that, he finished T49 at Trophee Hassan II and T25 at Kenya Open. He is a local that has made the cut three of four attempts at Himmerland, finishing as high as T7 in 2014. He is ranked 48th on tour in SG: tee to green and 85th in birdies.
