David Horsey has risen nearly 40 places in the Official World Golf Ranking since May. In that stretch he’s finished runner up twice, including three weeks ago at the Made in Denmark where he held the lead on Sunday before Julian Suri pulled away late.
This week seems like the place for Horsey to get back into contention as that’s where he found himself at last year’s KLM Open. Horsey made the penultimate pairing on Sunday en route to a closing 70 and a tie for fourth place.
Horsey is not a long hitter, but I don’t envision that being a big issue on this short course. Horsey’s iron play isn’t superb, either, but he’s great around the greens at 36th on tour in scrambling and 27th in putts per round, which should come in handy this week.
Having played only three times since The Open, the 32-year-old should be prepped and ready to go at a course he’s found success.
