Home Advantage Will Be Crucial For The South Africans At The Joburg Open

The final European Tour event of the calendar year comes from South Africa as the Joburg Open takes centre stage at Randpark Golf Club, which will host the tournament for the very first time...

The Head of The Market

The first eleven renewals of the Joburg Open were held at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club but renovation work means Randpark has stepped in and it is Louis Oosthuizen who is the bookmakers' favourite for a tournament that is co-sanctioned by the European and Sunshine Tours.

Oosthuizen, the 2010 Open winner, tied 7th in Mauritius last week and the highest ranked player in the field looks a touch short at 11/2 here (Paddy Power).

Dylan Frittelli was victorious in Mauritius last week as he signed off a good run of form with a win and he is undoubtedly playing well but he is perhaps not a man to be backed at single-figure odds (9/1).

The Selections

Instead, we prefer to back the 2015 Joburg Open winner Haydn Porteous at 25/1 (Bet 365) as the 23-year-old won an amateur event at Randpark in 2013 and he is a real threat here. The Czech Masters signed off the previous European Tour campaign with a couple of fine top-20s and he blew away the cobwebs with a decent run in Mauritius, with a return to Johannesburg sure to suit.
Tip #1: Haydn Porteous (each way) @ 25/1 with Bet 365.

It bodes well that eight of the previous eleven winners of the Joburg Open have been South African and the in-form Shaun Norris is worth a look. The 35-year-old has won six professional titles and he returns to his homeland with some very impressive statistics from events in Japan under his belt, going 6-4-6-16-26-2 in his past six outings.
Tip #2: Shaun Norris (each way) @ 40/1 with Unibet.

Finally, Ockie Strydom is still looking for his first win as a professional but the 33-year-old keeps knocking on the door and he could offer each-way value at 80/1. Strydom's tie for 9th in Mauritius was his twelfth top-20 finish in 2017 and it is worth noting that he has finished runner-up on four occasions during that run.
Tip #3: Ockie Strydom (each way) @ 80/1 with Unibet.co.uk.
