2017 European Tour:Omega European Masters
September 07, 2014 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura, Portugal will host the Portugal Masters. This 4-day tournament is sanctioned by the European Tour. This will be the 11-straight year that the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course will host the Portugal Masters.

This golf course was designed by the late and great Arnold Palmer. The Par 71, 7,146-yard course offers a picturesque setting with generous fairways that puts premium on solid putting stroke and numerous birdies. The course seems like playable but there are several lakes, bunkers and natural vegetation that could impede the view of the players.

Defending champion and three-time Major winner Padraig Harrington leads the field alongside a host of Europe's finest and Portugal's up and coming golfers. Other well-known and respected players that will participate at the Portugal Masters includes:

  • Thomas Bjorn
  • Paul Lawrie
  • Jose Maria Olazabal
  • Shane Lowry
  • Thomas Pieters
  • Andy Sullivan
  • Nicolas Colsaerts

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Thomas Pieters as the player to beat at the Portugal Masters.
