PGA European Tour Tshwane Open Tips: South Africans Out to Dominate Once More

Ian Waterhouse

PGA European Tour Tshwane Open Preview

The European Tour heads back to South Africa for its co-sanctioned event with the Sunshine Tour, the Tshwane Open. The tournament has been dominated by South Africans in recent years but last year’s Tshwane Open outright winner Dean Burmester is absent from the field. Despite this year only being the sixth running of the event, the Open competition has proved a hotbed of competition for those looking to earn extra ranking points in the Tour’s Race to Dubai. Although it may lack something of the high-profile nature of the Dubai Desert Classic, it is still a critical event and as highlighted in our best golf betting previews, world ranking points are vital no matter the tournament.

PGA European Tour Tshwane Open Betting Tips and Advice

South African George Coetzee is the class of the field in this tournament which makes him one of our prime Tshwane Open betting tips in this detailed Tshwane Open preview. The 31-year-old has three European Tour titles to his name but more importantly, knows this course like the back of his hand after claiming victory here in 2015. The South African heads the golf betting for these very reasons but it is his play off the tee that gives him an advantage over many rivals at a challenging Pretoria Country Club. Betfair’s latest golf betting odds are some of the very best you are going to get, especially for the outright markets making Coetzee too good to ignore. As the action intensifies over four days, it will take a man of Coetzee’s temperament and skill to navigate the tricky greens and with success already at this venue, he is a no-brainer to be one of our top Tshwane Open tips.

One of the best Tshwane Open bets is to look at another South African in Zander Lombard at each way with Unibet. This is because the bookmaker pays five places on the Tshwane Open and the 23-year-old has more than enough ability to go low. This is highlighted by his superb 65 in the second round of the Qatar Masters. Despite being winless so far on the European Tour, he has come close, narrowly losing the Rocco Forte Open to Spain’s Álvaro Quirós. However, at just 23, the South African has proven on many occasions he can mix it with the big boys and will once again be looking to go close. After four days of action, expect the youth of Zander to see him well up the leader board and with those each way odds, he is too long a price to ignore.

Talent clearly runs in the Koepka family as now Chase is making a name for himself as he aims to eventually overhaul his brother Brooks. The 24-year-old may have some way to go in order to match his brother’s achievements, but he has the talent to do it and where better than at this event. Much like Unibet, Betway also pay out five places and for a man who performed admirably at the BMW SA Open in January, those odds are too good to be true. Chase has played plenty of his golf in South Africa so knows the lie of the land very well and although 92/1 suggest the bookies do not hold out much hope, a top four is certainly not beyond him. It is only a matter of time before that first victory lands at his door and it could well be this weekend.
