George Coetzee Tops The Betting Shortlist For The Qatar Masters

The European Tour moves on to the Peter Harradine-designed Doha Golf Club for the Qatar Masters on Thursday and this year's renewal doesn't quite feature the same quality of past editions, with George Coetzee the pick of our bets for the week...

Qatar Masters    
Tips George Coetzee (each way) - T8    Best Bet @ 28 / 1  
Seungsu Han (each way) - T13 @ 40 / 1  
Bradley Dredge (each way) - T45 @ 150 / 1  

The Market Leaders

Thorbjorn Olesen is the 16/1 favourite after twice finishing in the top-three at Doha in the past four years, although he has missed a cut and finished tied 57th in the other two.

Jeunghun Wang is available at 20/1 after he won this tournament in a play-off last year, while he has gone 15-6-62-26 in his four appearances in the Middle East in 2018. The 2013 Qatar Masters winner Chris Wood (22/1) returned to form with a runner-up effort in Oman on Sunday, while the ultra-consistent Andy Sullivan (22/1) has a best finish of 9th to show from four visits to Doha.

The Selections

This is an event where South Africans tend to perform well, with Darren Fichardt, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen and Branden Grace (twice) all winning the Qatar title in the past and George Coetzee has a solid record at this venue, picking up four top-twelve finishes in the past five years.

Coetzee enjoyed a strong end to 2017, picking up five top-15s in his final ten outings, before a slow start to 2018 finally improved with a tie for 13th in his native South Africa. Coetzee closed the weekend with back-to-back rounds of 66 and this 7,400 yard course looks like as good a place as any for the South African to win a first title outside of his own country.
Tip #1: George Coetzee (each way) @ 28/1 with Betfred - 1/5 odds on 6 places.

Seungsu Han will be looking to emulate his compatriot Jeunghun Wang by winning the title in Doha and he arrives off the back of a tie for 4th in Oman. The South Korean picked up one win and seven other top-three finishes during a fine 2017 campaign on the Japanese tour and he can shine in a weakened field here.
Tip #2: Seungsu Wan (each way) @ 40/1 with Unibet - 1/4 odds on 5 places.

Finally, Bradley Dredge has missed the cut in his only start of 2018 so far but he will be relishing a return to Doha Golf Club, where he has twice finished in the top-five, including in 2016. The 44-year-old tied 21st last year and the Welshman looks over-priced at 150/1.
Tip #3: Bradley Dredge (each way) @ 150/1 with Betfred.com.
