Open Championship prep starts this week for many of Europe’s top golfers at the 2022 Irish Open.
Adare Manor will host the DP World Tour’s biggest tournament since January in the Middle East, with a $6 million purse available to players, as well as more points than most tournaments in the season race.
Last week, Haotong Li beat Thomas Pieters in a playoff at the BMW International Open in Munich after both finished 22-under. Pieters is back in action this week, tied for third on the opening BetMGM odds board with Tyrrell Hatton behind a pair of Irishmen.
Shane Lowry opens the week as the betting favorite at 8-1, followed by Seamus Power.
On the PGA TOUR, Lowry has racked up an impressive resume in 2022. Before he missed a cut. At the U.S. Open, his worst stroke-play result this year was a T32 at the Memorial. In 11 PGA TOUR starts in ’22, Lowry has seven top-20 finishes. This will be his first start dedicated to the DP World Tour since a T24 at the Dubai Desert Classic at the end of January.
Power’s form merits his placement on the odds board. His form has been up and down throughout 2022, having started the year going T15-T3-T14-T9 before missing three straight cuts. Power is definitely trending upward now, though. His last five results are T25 at the Travelers Championship, T12 at the U.S. Open, a missed cut at the Memorial, a T9 at the PGA Championship and a T17 at the Byron Nelson.
With how the DP World Tour’s rankings work, Will Zalatoris, Rory McIlroy, Matt Fitzpatrick and Justin Thomas make up four of the top-five spots right now. Only McIlroy has played an event this year that is specific to the DP World Tour. Those players have accumulated points from the major championships and WGC-Dell Match Play, all of which contribute to standings.
Two players in the field who are in the top 10 of those standings based primarily on their play in Europe this year are Thomas Pieters, Ryan Fox and Pablo Larrazabal.
Pieters ranks 34th in the Official World Golf Rankings and has been stellar all season. His last three DP World Tour results are a second-place finish at the BMW International Open, a T10 at the Dutch Open and a T9 at the Soul Open. He also was T27 at the U.S. Open.
Fox has been more impressive of late and is in stellar form on the DP World Tour. Here are his last seven results in Europe: 3-2-T2-T8-T9-T15-1. Larrazabal has been similarly impressive, having won twice in Europe in 2022. The Spaniard is coming off a T5 finish last week in Munich.
Other familiar names in the field this week include Aaron Rai and Guido Migliozzi. Rai has made 13 of 17 cuts on the PGA TOUR this year, including five straight and eight of his last nine. Migliozzi has made appearances at some U.S.-based majors over the past couple years and is coming off a T14 at the U.S. Open in his last start.
