The European Tour is back with another top-notch title that will reunite a fair few worthy golfers, from Sami Valimaki to Adri Arnaus, they are all coming for a good time. And the Middle East is definitely a great place for the latest installment in the European Tour and the Oman Open teeing off tomorrow, Wednesday, February 26.
A lot of preparation has gone to prepare the Al Mouj Golf Course and give golfers a chance to dip their hands in the €1,589,067 prize pool, roughly $1,728,710. So far, nine events have been completed with some eye-popping championships already logged in the books, including the WGC-Mexico Championship.
The Arabian Peninsula has proven indeed quite the hot spot for quality golfing with the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and Saudi International all standing up to expectations, not to mention accessibility, judging by the cheap ticket prices. Oman promises to be no less exciting. Let’s have a look at what the latest odds say about the participants’ chances of winning.

Thomas Pieters or Adri Arnaus? Who Will Seal the 2020 Title?
There is a lot of talent coming to the Oman Open 2020 and we are just a good night’s sleep from the first stroke when Paul Waring will set the five-day golf spectacle in motion.
First, we have Thomas Pieters, a favorite for the title if you ask bookmakers’ odds. After an exciting performance in the Desert Classic in January, he is definitely in a decent shape, capable of beating long-odds and climbing to the very top.
He already has several wins on the European Tour and adding another one in Oman is not too difficult to imagine. He managed to end up third in the Saudi International and claimed sixth spot in the 2019 edition of the Oman Omen. In a word? Here’s a golfer who definitely won’t shy away from a challenge.
Adri Arnaus is almost a local. He moved to Dubai last year to be closer to the hottest golf action in the Middle East, and very much the world, so he definitely won’t have trouble getting accustomed to the weather and the challenges that come with the sweltering heat of Oman.
While he has still not grabbed any big headlines, outside the 2018 Challenge Tour Grand Final, Arnaus is most certainly a worthy bet that could bring value if you vote him confidence. It’s time for another big win, it seems.
