Czech Masters Fantasy Preview

After The Waterbed win in Denmark, the Euro Tour heads to Prague for the Czech Masters.

The Big Suri win was certainly one in the making, which adds to the list of trending youngsters that played their way right into the winner’s circle (like Jordan Smith did just before Suri). That could bode well for other popular golfers like Alexander Bjork, Aaron Rai, Ashley Chesters, and Thomas Detry.

The course this week is Albatross Golf Resort, a lengthy par 72 with bentgrass greens. There is water in play on seven holes and is played ~1,300 feet above sea level which isn’t a huge factor but makes golfers second-guess their club selections.

Let’s have a look at some performance metrics since the start of 2015, to see who pops on this week’s setup.
