The European Tour stays in the Canary Islands for the Tenerife Open this week, where Garrick Higgo, the left-hander from South Africa who won the Gran Canaria Lopesan Open by three shots last Sunday, headlines the field at the Golf Costa Adeje.
Below, we’ve got betting tips and predictions for the Tenerife Open, with a couple of interesting alternatives for bettors keen to swing clear of Higgo.
Tenerife Open predictions and betting tips
Garrick Higgo has been a popular selection for the Tenerife Open in the wake of his Gran Canaria Lopesan Open success last Sunday. The 21-year-old South African left-hander was inspired in Gran Canaria – his putter resembling a magic wand for the majority of the event – and he closed with a pair of 63s for a 25-under-par total.
Given how similar this week’s assignment is to last week’s – another Canary Islands venue by the coast – Higgo fans have every right to be excited. His breakthrough win came in Portugal and he seems to love the courses in this region, but he has halved in price from Gran Canaria, making him a less attractive option.

Tenerife Open winner prediction: Antoine Rozner at 16/1
Preference is for Antoine Rozner, who is on offer at the same odds for which he could be backed for Gran Canaria, despite him using that event to knock rust off his game. Rozner had not played since the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and was slow out of the Gran Canaria gates, but by Sunday his swing was in mint condition again, resulting in a closing round of 64 for 15th place.
The Frenchman topped the greens-in-regulation statistics during his bogey-free Sunday cruise and that bodes extremely well for his chances of contending in Tenerife. Rozner has won two of his last eight tournaments and is stalking the top 50 of the world rankings.
Tenerife Open winner prediction: Nicolai Hojgaard at 100/1
An appealing alternative at bigger odds is Nicolai Hojgaard, who is threatening to fulfil the massive potential he showed as a teenager. The Dane turned 20 last month and finished seventh in the Austrian Open, then followed up with 15th spot in Gran Canaria. The five par-fives on offer at Golf Costa Adeje this week should be destroyed by this enormous driver and he could go close to a maiden victory.
