Odds on the exchanges

Lee Westwood 11/1

17th last week in Abu Dhabi but Lee was playing through a neck injury.  Excellent greens in regulation stats stood out though and if Lee can get on the practice green early in Doha and find his range, he could be the one to beat.

Sergio Garcia 16/1

The Spaniard has two wins in his last five events and a worst finish of 12th.  He's also just one good putting week away from a win. Garcia has done well on this track over the years with three top 10's in his last four appearences here. He has the consistency for me to give him the edge over others I considered in this category including Thomas Bjorn and Alvaro Quiros.

CIMG6965Graeme McDowell 17/1

Graeme is loving life right now and though this tied third last week might be due in part to some outrageous luck, I think he will have a big week in Qatar. A combined 44 under for his last four events and the talk of the locker room with his new fashion deal with Kartel.

George Coetzee 38/1

Bettered his finish in each of the three events he has played in 2012. 29th in the Affrica Open, 14th in the Joburg Open and sixth in exalted company last week in Abu Dhabi. If I had to pick a surprise player to win a Major in the next three years, George would be my man. He may not have the experience of some of the others in the field, but boy can George golf.

Best Of The Rest

As predicted last week Paul Lawrie (50/1) was good value for money throughout the week and though he slipped to ninth at the finish in Abu Dhabi, could well have a say in this tournament also.
Another tip in the long odds glory section is Rafa Cabrera Bello (150/1). His formline would never lead you to pick him but he shot a 77 in the first round here last year, then followed it with 68,66,68 to finish third. If he can start better this year Rafa could add to his Austria win in 2009.
Thorbjorn Olesen (80/1) came off a desperate run towards the end of last season to finish strongly in Dubai. Top tenned last week and putted better than the entire field. At odds of he could be a decent each way bet.
For those of you who like to back and lay on the exchanges, I always pick my favourite players Johan Edfors (150/1) and Richard Green (200/1) in Doha. Maybe its for sentimental reasons but someday it might just come good!
