The Euro Tour is back in action after a bit of a Spring Break.
They head to Morocco this week to take on Royal Golf Dar Es Salam for a fourth straight year.
The course is one of the toughest tests they’ll face all year. The field has averaged 74.03 in the last three editions.
Why is is so tough? Well, it’s tight and tree-lined off the tee and also stretches out past 7,600 yards. There is a lot of room for error from tee-to-green. If you ace that test, then you are faced with tough green complexes. Good luck.
As always, I would recommend you check out Matt Cooper’s Rotoworld Preview as it provides a lot of good individual nuggets. He also gives a top 20 and you’ll notice one big difference between our ranks. It involves the defending champ Alex Levy who has played just once in the last 11 weeks due to injury. That’s not the type of form I want to put my faith into.
You can also have a look at the Fantasy Golfanac for some past quotes from the event.
Let’s dive into some past results to see who might fit the course.
