Tenerife Open TV schedules and betting tips
NCG fitness expert Barry Plummer assesses the pitch ahead of second Canary Islands swing event
It’s the second week of the European Tour in their Canary Islands swing, and this time the players are heading to the Tenerife Open. I’ve picked three players who I think will be fine, but first here’s all the info you need …
Tenerife Open details
Location: Golf Costa Adeje, Tenerife, Spain
Dated: April 29-May 2, 2021
Course statistics: By 71; 6.857 meters.
Course summary: This short, open resort-style track is very similar to the venue of the Gran Canaria Open last week, with low scores expected. Five par-5s will give players plenty of opportunities to argue, provided they can handle the sometimes strong coastal breeze.

Tenerife Open betting tips
As usual, I’m joined by Steve Carroll from NCG to discuss my betting tips for the Tenerife Open on the Dialed In podcast. I’ve picked three players I want to play well this week.
You can listen to the podcast in the player below or on your favorite podcast platform.
Bazza’s banker: Maximilian Kieffer @ 28/1 with Bet365
A near-crash at the Austrian Open clearly didn’t dampen Kieffer’s spirits, responding immediately with a second consecutive finalist in as many weeks. The German shot an 8-under 62 to close at Gran Canaria, and on a similar track this week he will think his chances of doing better. Kieffer has now shot by or better in 14 straight rounds, in five rounds of 66 or better. This premium golf course shows no signs of slowing down, and considering it placed 2nd for SG: Tee-to-green at last week’s event, I can confidently include Kieffer in my staking plan this week.
The outsider: Laurie Canter @ 45/1 with Bet365
A solid start to the year on the desert swing was masked by two poor performances from Canter recently, but after a short hiatus I want the Englishman to evolve on a course that will certainly suit him. A Q4 finish in Abu Dhabi demonstrated a continuation of the excellent form he showed at the end of 2020, with two finalists in his last seven starts. Canter has been exceptionally strong from the start, finishing 7th on the circuit, so he should have plenty of opportunities on this attackable course. These types of characters will be very important here, so if Canter arrives fresh, he could provide some excitement over the weekend.
The plan from afar: Matthieu Pavon @ 125/1 with Bet365
Pavon caught my eye with a strong performance in Gran Canaria last week, and despite a disappointing final he is one of my picks here. Pavon started with a 66 without a bogey, and followed up with a consecutive 64 to give himself a big chance to win his first European Tour title. Sadly he wasn’t, but he seemed to like the resort style track. Statistics phrase. At a steep price, the Frenchman could offer a lot of value for a one-sided bet.
