Favourites Discussion

Like an American dentist, Branden Grace 9/2 blew away the field at Leopard Creek last season and coming off a solo third at the Tour Championship, he’s locked and loaded and ready to go again. Charl Schwartzel  at 13/2 is also short odds and coming off a T4 in Dubai Charl he will be high in confidence.  Three time winner on the course and finally playing well enough to win again.

Doc’s Five To Watch at the 2016 Alfred Dunhill Championship

Lucas Bjerregaard 20/1 

If Golfing Gods really do exist, Lucas Bjerregaard is due a break in South Africa this week.  After rounds of 68, 67 and 66 got him into second place with a day to go here last season, the Dane finished with a car crash round of 89.  More experienced now and with a T9 in Portugal, solo second in Hong Kong and T3 in Woburn under his belt, Lucas will be looking to set the record straight this week.

Romain Wattel 30/1

Kindof in limbo land recently with solid finishes that just don’t reflect how good he is playing.  Romain hits it long, straight and knows how to roll the rock on the greens yet has gone under the radar in Turkey, Portugal and Woburn.  Looked the part on this course with a T3 two years ago (ie Dec 2013) and I believe is due a big week.

Trevor Fisher 45/1

By my calculations it’s Trevor’s ninth Alfred Dunhill this week and my homegrown pick this week.  Has a best of T4 here last season and since became a fully fledged European winner at the Africa Open.  Decent recent form too with a T24 at the BMW Masters and a T3 in Portugal.

David Drysdale 50/1

An ever present at Leopard Creek as long as I can remember, David has improved his finish here on his last three visits with a T25, T11 and T6 respectively.  His recent form is solid too with three top-20’s from his last five starts.  Those results are built on stat leading driving accuracy numbers and if he can putt like he did in Portugal, the Scot could have a great week.

Paul Dunne 50/1

Now a fully fledged European Tour member Paul Dunne can play out the year relatively stress free and hopefully we will see more of the magic that lit up this year’s Open Championship.  Dunners has the temperament to hit the ground running in South Africa and after a super week at Tour School makes my five.
