Dubai Desert Classic – betting tips 30

It’s a big ask to expect Nacho Elvira to record his first European Tour win in a tournament of this stature but there have been four different Spanish winners in the last eight years and the winner isn’t always the obvious name.  The 30-year-old had a couple of near misses last year and was in contention at the half-way stage of last years Desert Classic before a pair of weekend 72s dropped him to T11. Solid throughout the bag, last season he ranked in the top-60 for scoring average, driving distance and GIRs on tour. Putting is the problem and has prevented him getting over the line but he did […]

CareerBuilder Challenge – betting tips 14

Since then he’s moved up through the leagues, winning on the Web.com Tour in 2016 and going close on the PGA Tour in 2017. Born in California, he will want to show up well in the West-Coast swing just as he did last year with a T9 at the Farmers Insurance Open. Currently ranked 14th […]


Abu Dhabi Championship – betting tips 10

The golf season gets properly underway for 2018 this week with good tournaments on both the PGA and European Tour. The latter enjoys the moneyed Abu Dhabi Championship on its roster and that is where the stellar fields reside.  For several years the likes of Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson have teed it up in Abu Dhabi but that’s not stopped the odd surprise winner. Despite the heat many golfers can be caught cold after the winter but not Byeong Hun An. His record in the desert is superb. At Abu Dhabi it is 12-5-13 and he was well placed twelve months ago before falling back on Sunday. Widen the sample […]
