2017 Dubai Desert Classic Betting Tips

Tiger Woods is in town this week for the Dubai Desert Classic and though Rory McIlroy is out through injury it still looks like an exciting field. Henrik Stenson is universally quoted at odds of 13/2 with the bookies. He's a former winner from 10 years ago and finished T6 last year.  The Swede shot a 64 in the first round in Abu Dhabi a couple of weeks ago on his way to a T8 finish and looks top class now every time he tees it up.

Tyrell Hatton 20/1

It's Hatton fourth start at the Dubai Desert Classic and he has improved his finish each time, culminating in a T8 last year.  Led after three rounds in Abu Dhabi but faded on Sunday to slip to a T13 finish.  His T5 GIR clip indicates a solid game early doors so don’t count him out.

Rafa Cabrera Bello 20/1

Rafa's last win on Tour came here in 2012  and again contended last year finishing T2 behind Danny Willett.  He topped the greens in regulation then and that same strong iron play has already yielded a T19 in Abu Dhabi and T6 in Qatar. Nobody deserves it more than the Spaniard.

Andy Sullivan 30/1

Andy showed that he's finding form in Qatar last week and led after two rounds.  Okay it didn't go so well at the weekend but he's a different prospect at Emirates GC.  Sully was T4 in 2015 and T2 in 2016 after amassing a total of 13 under on just the par-4's.  I think he'll do well this week.

Thomas Aiken 33/1

With his last six rounds in the 60's, Thomas Aiken's driving and iron game is the best on Tour just now and has yielded a T13 in Abu Dhabi and T4 in Qatar.  The South African has only played the event three times but finished T7 in 2011 and T9 in his last appearance here in 2015.  In form and one to watch.

Lee Westwood 33/1

Lee Westwood seems to me to be out to prove a point to all those who seem to think he's past it.  He putted brilliantly to finish T8 in Abu Dhabi two weeks ago and relish a return to Dubai and a course he knows like the back of his hand.  It's Lee's 19th appearance in Dubai and he has nine top-10's including four since 2010.  Don’t count him out.

Long Odds Glory

Peter Hanson 66/1

Peter Hanson has been one of my favourite players on Tour for many years and looks to be in good form already in 2017 with a T8 in Abu Dhabi and T18 in Qatar.  Has a best of sixth here in 2007.
