There are few golfers on the planet right now playing better than Lucas Bjerregaard. The Dane waltzes into Scotland this week riding three top-10s in a row, including his first career win two weeks ago at the Portugal Masters.
Bjerregaard fared well at one of the tougher fields he’ll see see at last week’s British Masters. The 26-year-old didn’t make a bogey after his second hole on Friday en route to four straight 67s for a T8 finish. He made just four bogeys all week.
The dude can crush the ball, averaging well over 300 yards off the tee. Distance isn’t a requisite to win this event, but it usually doesn’t hurt, either.
Bjerregaard tied for 32nd in his first Alfred Dunhill Links start in 2014 and missed the cut the next two years. At other links courses this year, Bjerregaard missed the cut at the Irish Open and tied for 61st at the Scottish Open.
Prior to Bjerregaard’s current streak of five made cuts in a row, he had just one top-10 all year. I’m buying stock in Bjerregaard hanging around on Tour for a while, but he’s also a candidate to regress to the mean sometime soon. Until that day comes, though, I’d roll with Bjerregaard this week while the iron’s still hot.
