Join today

Andy Swales brings you course and current form stats for this week's European Tour event in the Czech Republic...

"For most European Tour regulars, this will be their first competitive outing in almost a month – and perhaps longer if they failed to qualify for The Open at Royal Portrush."

For the next 11 weeks, the European Tour will be back on home ground with tournaments staged in as many different European countries.

First up is the D+D Real Czech Masters which, once again, is being played at the Albatross Resort outside Prague.

Situated approximately 12 miles south-west of Prague city centre, Albatross will be hosting this event for a sixth successive year.

Mid-Summer Break!

For most European Tour regulars, this will be their first competitive outing in almost a month - and perhaps longer if they failed to qualify for The Open at Royal Portrush.

Eddie Pepperell is a late entry to the tournament and arrives in east Europe following his outburst on Twitter last week, when he joined the ongoing debate about slow play, and severely criticised Bryson DeChambeau on social media - before apologising for his over the top remarks.

Pepperell has a solid record at Albatross, thanks to three top-10 finishes, and the Englishman will certainly fancy his chances this week.

Others with a good history at the course include the rejuvenated Tom Lewis, Thomas Pieters - the Belgian is a former champion here - Scott Jamieson and Lee Slattery.

Lewis tied-11th on his most recent start at The Open, while Slattery enjoyed satisfactory back-to-back performance on links, before the Tour schedule abruptly and temporarily halted his season following the Scottish Open.

Still Going Strong

Lee Westwood makes the trip, having enjoyed an upturn in fortunes during recent months.

This includes a tie-for-fourth at Royal Portrush which was his fourth T-25 finish in five European Tour starts.

Defending champion Andrea Pavan has since won again on Tour - in Germany eight weeks ago - while Erik Van Rooyan is definitely a good shout, as he moves ever closer to a maiden victory in Europe.

The South African is a three-time runner-up on the world's second most important Tour.

With quality a little thin on the ground in the Czech Republic, this week's event offers plenty of opportunities for those teeing-up at Albatross, including the up-and-coming Aaron Rai who enjoyed his breakthrough last November with victory at the Hong Kong Open.

Course Details

Opened nine years ago, Albatross is a gently undulating parkland course perched 400m above sea level.

Water comes into play on 10 holes, most of it on the back nine, with some of the ponds more precariously positioned than others.

Long, exposed and with few trees close to fairways, the course is an open invitation for the big hitters, although there are some subtle dog-legs to keep the mind suitably focused.
