It was another great week for Stuart Gatelan at the Nedbank Golf Challenge last week; he backed the winner Branden Grace at 16/1 aswell as a Top 5 Finish at 4/1. That win takes him to a total profit of £1019 for the year and he’ll be looking to increase that at this week’s DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.
The DP World Tour Championship is a golf tournament on the European Tour and is the climax of the European Tour Race to Dubai. It is contested on the Earth course at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai.
The tournament was first held in 2009 when the Order of Merit was replaced by the Race to Dubai. It is contested by the leading 60 players in the Race to Dubai at the start of the tournament. It is the replacement for the Volvo Masters, which was a similar event for the leading 60 money winners on the Order of Merit.
Originally the tournament was to have a record prize fund of $10,000,000, of which the winner's share would be $1,666,660, however in September 2009 it was announced that there would be a 25% reduction in both the overall prize fund and the winner’s cheque. The prize fund was increased to $8,000,000 in 2012.
Matthew Fitzpatrick is the defending champion and at 18/1 I can definitely see a lot of punters siding with him to win again, especially as he comes into this tournament in decent form. He’s just one of many Brits who have a decent chance this week with the likes of Race To Dubai leader Tommy Fleetwood, Tyrrell Hatton and my first pick for the tournament Justin Rose all in the lineup.
Rose is looking to make it three wins on the bounce after two fantastic comeback wins at the WGC HSBC Champions and the Turkish Airlines Open. He comes into this tournament at the top of his game and knows the course very well; finishing runner-up in 2012 and 2014. I think there’s a great chance he can go one better this week at a best price of 7/1.
My second and final pick for the DP World Tour Championship is Victor Dubuisson. This is a pick I didn’t expect to make, but after his performance at the Nedbank Golf Challenge last week I think he could be in with a great chance here.
He led for a long time in South Africa but was unable to maintain his form going into the final round and eventually finished 2 strokes behind in 3rd. Victor has performed very well in this tournament in previous years; finishing 4th last year after a poor final round and runner up with Justin Rose back in 2014. At a best price of 28/1 I definitely think Dubuisson is worth backing each way.
If you use the Easyodds odds comparison service you are guaranteed to get the best odds on offer. For example, Victor Dubuisson to win is best priced at 20/1 with some bookmakers but using Easyodds you can get 28/1 meaning if you were to put £10 on you would get an extra £80 profit if he was to win.
