The Links at Fancourt, George, South Africa 19 Jan 2012 - 22 Jan 2012

Winner Alright

In last week’s Joburg Open best of the rest section we tipped winner Branden Grace at 46/1 and Jaco Van Zyl who tied third at 18/1.

Louis Oosthuizen 5/1

What can you say about this man that might deter you from having a punt on him this week? Not very much really except perhaps if he has one eye on the upcoming birth of his second child. On the course Louis is on fire and came into the Africa Open on the tail end of five straight top-10’s across the world. Won there with an incredible 27 under. Great in the wind and on links, he’s the nap of the week and a handy man to have in your group if you drop your club in the water.


Darren Clarke 50/1

Twice a winner last season most memorably on the St Georges links in the Summer. Clarke loves coming down to South Africa, he shot a 63 in the Joburg Open in 2010, and if the wind blows he could very well come into a place.

Paul Lawrie 35/1

41440787-lawrie300 Last season, it’s fair to say, was probably Lawrie’s best and most satisfying on Tour since the turn of the century when he regularly passed the million euro earnings mark. Won the Open de Andalucia and give Alvaro Quiros a run for his money at the season finale in Dubai. Accomplished on links and in the wind and bound to be full of confidence, I’m hopeful of a top 10 if not much better for the Scot.

Best Of The Rest

jimenez wedge I’m a big fan of Miguel Angel Jimenez 28/1 and am reminded of his broken putter incident at this event in Bahrain last season. After a good laugh with Darren Clarke and Monty he birdied the next three holes with his wedge on his way to tying second. Whether this course will suit the Mechanic, I really cant tell but if he’s up there Friday evening he’s worth a euro. Two others worth keeping an eye on over the coming weeks are Swede Alex Noren 25/1 who I know has been busy practicing in Florida in anticipation of his season opener and Gonzalo Castano 25/1 who had great finish to last season with a second at the Castello Masters and a win at the weather hit Barclays Singapore Open.
