Another week in profit for our spread betting tips as Robert Rock obliged by finishing 8th having sold his finishing position at 42. Click here to read those tips.
My spread betting tips for this event are as follows:
This market is made from the following 10 players only: Els, Goosen, Clark, Schwartzel, Aiken, Martin, Van Zyl, Kingston, Sterne and Oosthuizen - finishing 4th or better out of these will guarantee us a profit with Oosthuizen being priced at 6-8. I made my case for the Open Champion in my main tips, however in case you missed it:
Open Championship winner Oosthuizen will be keen to prove he's not just a one-trick pony this week as he plays in his native South Africa for the first time since his St Andrews triumph. He'll feel some distinct similarities here to the home of golf and, despite missing the cut last week, I think we'll find a much stronger showing from Louis here.
Oosthuizen has some positive form in this event to draw upon - 12th here in 2005 on this course is encouraging given that he's a much, much better player now; he would have won this in 2007 if it weren't for a disastrous first day 78 when eventually finishing 3rd. He also finished in a tie for 5th back in 2006 and has 3 more top 20s to his name.
Despite that missed cut last week, the South African is still in relatively good form with 3 top 10s in his last 7 starts, plus a creditable 13th in Dubai. Out of the remaining South Africans heading the field, I feel that Oosthuizen is the most likely to be keeping Schwartzel company coming down the stretch. RESULT: 3rd, Profit 12 Points.
I've remarked before a number of times that Martin is a fast bent green specialist - to the same end he tends to struggle on any other type of surface. The Bermuda greens will not be to his liking and I'd expect his performance this week to reflect that fact.
Having secured his 3rd European Tour title last week, it also worth questioning whether Pablo will have anything left in the tank this week. All in all this adds up to a likely missed cut and an opportunity for us to take him on here. RESULT: Missed Cut, Profit 31.5 Points.
