Bjork Can Find The Right Tune At The Tshwane Open In South Africa

Attention turns to South Africa for the co-sanctioned Tshwane Open this week and there will be an opportunity for some of the lesser lights to shine at Pretoria Country Club, which has played host to this tournament since it moved from Copperleaf in 2015...

Tshwane Open    
Tips Alexander Bjork (each way) - MC    Best Bet @ 18 / 1  
Jacques Blaauw (each way) - T12 @ 40 / 1  
Justin Walters (each way) - T21 @ 50 / 1  

The Head Of The Market

Pretoria puts a premium on accuracy from tee-to-green and it is George Coetzee who heads here as favourite, with the South African bidding to win this event for a second time following his success in 2015. Coetzee has endured a woeful dip in form during the past 12 months but he is improving as he tied 8th in Qatar on Sunday.

We backed Coetzee each-way at 28/1 last week but have we seen enough to suggest he can justify a skinny 12/1 this week? All of his European Tour wins have come in events co-sanctioned by the Sunshine Tour which bodes well...

Marcus Kinholt can be backed at 25/1 (Coral) following his podium finish in Qatar, while the in-form Shaun Norris is an interesting bet at 33/1 as he has racked up eight top-ten finishes in his past 14 starts.

The Selections

Alexander Bjork finished 5th on debut at Pretoria in 2017 and the Swede has been knocking on the tour for a first European Tour win since making his first appearance on the tour at the end of 2016. The 28-year-old tied 2nd in Hong Kong towards the end of 2017 and he has hit the ground running during this calendar year, securing three top-20 finishes in his past four outings.
Tip #1: Alexander Bjork (each way) @ 18/1 with Betfred - 1/5 odds on 6 places.

Jacques Blaauw has been quietly going about his business this year, securing three top-15 finishes in five starts, and he is very much a player who enjoys playing at Pretoria, where he finished runner-up to Coetzee in 2015. The 32-year-old has since finished 53rd and 6th in this event.
Tip #2: Jacques Blaauw (each way) @ 40/1 with Betfred.com.

Justin Walters has endured a topsy-turvy time of it in recent years but he showed last year that he can produce a performance out of nowhere then tying for 3rd at the KLM Open last season, while he always tends to enjoy these tight, parkland courses. Walters has gone 23-4-9 in his three visits to Pretoria and he is worth an each-way look in this field.
Tip #3: Justin Walters (each way) @ 50/1 with Betfred.
