Golf: South Africa Open
free bets bet 365

We hit a bit of form on these pages towards the end of 2015 following a very poor run – inevitable in golf betting – and we are hoping to get an early winner or two under our belt in 2016. 

 

The South Africa Open is played at Glendower Golf Course in Johannesburg. The track does not overly favour the longer hitters and much will depend on how they set the course up this year after the rough was far more penal last year than in 2014. 

 

I expect the rough to be long again which should favour the straighter hitters. 

 

We’ve gone for one from the top of the market backed up by two very interesting outsiders.

Gregory Bourdy does not have any course form to go on here but this track should be right up his street. He’s very straight off the tee – ranking 16th in driving accuracy last year – and another of his strengths are his accurate irons to approach the green.

There has been a lot of talk about young Swede Marcus Kinhult making his professional debut in this event (http://www.europeantour.com/europeantour/season=2016/tournamentid=2016000/news/newsid=281417.html#IV9Wich3ssKYoGAC.97) after qualifying at the PGA Cataluna hosted European Tour Q School, however, his odds are now around the 40/1 mark while another qualifier from the Q School, and, importantly, a member at Glendower GC, Ulrich Van Den Berg, is priced at a whopping 100/1!

Matt Ford is an interesting character who did not turn pro until he was 25 and didn’t start playing on tour until a good few years after that. He has openly talked of his fondness for South African courses and was putting just about as well as anyone on tour in his last two events where he finished 7th in Hong Kong before an impressive 5th place at Leopard Creek.
