Rasmus and Nicolai Hojgaard are favored to become the first natives of Denmark to win the country’s signature tournament—the Made in Himmerland event. Let’s take a look at the 2023 Made in HimmerLand Odds, field and our Free golf betting picks!
It’s been held since 2014, and Briton Oliver Wilson is the defending champion, defeating Ewen Ferguson by one stroke a year ago. The previous two events were won by Bernd Wiesberger—now of LIV Golf—and he’s the only two-time winner here. It’s the final tune-up before two big events in the following two weeks: the Genesis Scottish Open and The Open Championship from Royal Liverpool.
All but the 2018 edition of this event has been held at the HimmerLand Golf and Spa Resort in Farso. It’s a short course at just 6,651 yards and a par 71. There’s plenty of undulation on the course and difficult bunkers, which adds to the difficulty level. A fun hole is the 16th, which can play as short as 79 yards, but the two-tier green with major slopes can still cause problems for players.
The course record is held by Wilson and Wiesberger, who won the last two editions of this event at a 21-under 263.
Neither Nicolai Hojgaard (+1000) nor Rasmus Hojgaard (+1200) performed well here last year, as they missed the cut and finished 22nd, respectively. If you’re looking for a potential hometown hero, you might be better off taking Thorbjorn Olesen (+2000), who is in better form than the twins. He won the Thailand Classic earlier this year and finished 15th at the Betfred British Masters last week in defense of his 2022 title.
Adrian Otaegui (+2000) was finishing runner-up to Pablo Larrazabal in the Netherlands the last time we saw him on the DP World Tour. He’s been a strong contender on the DPWT since May and came in second in a Spanish PGA event last week. He owns a third-place finish on this course and closed last year’s event with a 64 in the final round.
Ewen Ferguson (+3000) was the runner-up here a year ago and has won twice since that near miss. Last week in the British Masters, he placed fourth and owns three other top-10 results in 2023.
Pablo Larrazabal (+3300) is also worth a look, having won four times over the past two years. He’s played on this course two times with finishes of fourth and 19th.
Wilson was a gigantic underdog at +32000 a year ago. Will we see something like that again this year? We’re not confident enough to back the Hojgaards, but we do like Olesen, Otaegui, Ferguson, and Larrazabal here.
