BMW South African Open Betting Tips & Predictions 2018

Valero Texas Open free tips

The South African Open will have some flare this year as local men Branden Grace and Charl Schwartzel are in town to compete in the first European Tour event of the calendar year. An emotional Brandon Stone won this event in 2016 here at Glendower Golf Club whilst Englishman Graeme Storm won last year. From a betting perspective it certainly pays to stick to the home golfers in general, for instance Gary Player won this tournament a staggering 13 times between 1956 and 1981.

Glendower Golf Course is a 7,594 yard Par 72 course that won’t take too much getting due to the humidity so the ball travels a long way. It will still present a challenge yet will yield plenty of birdie opportunities. Let’s move on to this week’s three selections, hopefully we have a winner in our midst.

James Morrison

James has played well here on his last three outings without ever threatening to win, 22nd, 15th and 13th, improving with each start so the more he familiarises himself with the course the most he seems to take to it. The Englishman was 6th in the Joburg Open on his first start on the track at the tail end of 2017 so has a clear liking for South Africa. He blows very hot or cold like most players on the European Tour at the moment but if he is on a going day he will really fancy it and he certainly knows how to close out a tournament, as he proved when winning in Spain a couple of years ago.

Richard Bland

We will take a punt on Englishman Richard Bland who has two Top 15 finishes in this event and is more than capable on his day. The man from Southampton is still seeking his first win on the European Tour despite trying his heart out for the past ten years but there is no doubt he has the ability to win one. He ended 2017 on a high with some solid finishes and the journeyman will have no real pressure on his shoulders this week so is worth a punt at massive odds.

Julien Guerrier

Last but not least, we have a speculative punt on Frenchman Julien Guerrier who has really caught the eye on the Challenge Tour in recent starts and will certainly not look out of place in this field.  He won twice on the Challenge Tour in 2017 and I actually watch him win the Irish Challenge where he was faultless with a four round total of -17!  His wins have come on tough golf course, he loves a challenge and he has one this week. He is of course a shot in the dark but the European Tour is extremely tough from a punting perspective. He is 100% worth a small investment this week and could well be the surprise package of the season so put him into the notebook regardless.
