The Abu Dhabi Golf Championship is held at the Abu Dhabi golf club and was first held in 2006. It is part of the European Tour and is a great opportunity for golf betting. It takes place during January each year, with a prize purse of $2.7 million on offer.
It is one of several events that have seen the European Tour expand into the Asian continent, although interestingly it is not co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour.
Previous winners include quality players from the European Tour who are always worth a punt, such as Paul Casey and Martin Kaymer who have each won the tournament twice.
The 2010 winner was the eventual Race To Dubai champion Martin Kaymer who was at odds of 14/1 before the tournament but proved the betting wrong to take the trophy on the final day. Geoff Ogilvy, Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy had gone into the tournament as the ante-post favourites at 12/1 but Kaymer emerged victorious.

The Volvo Golf Champions tournament is an exciting new addition to the European Tour calendar. It takes place at the Colin Montgomerie designed 'Montgomerie Course' at the Royal Golf Club in Bahrain.
There is a $2.2 million prize purse at stake for the players and 2011 will see a full field competing. But 2012 witnessed a change as the event will only involve European Tour event winners from the previous season.
With such money at stake and the cream of the European Tour taking part the betting is sure to provide plenty of interest leading up to and during the tournament in Bahrain.....
