AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open Golf Betting Tips 2016

This is a tournament I always take an interest in having visited and played the course in my early days at Golf Monthly in 2009.

The Four Season Resort that they play the tournament at in Anahita is one of the most spectacular places I have ever visited and I managed to play a couple of rounds of golf during my stay.

The course sits in spectacular scenery with there being holes alongside beautiful ocean and mangrove.

However it is the green complexes that will prove the real issues for the pros as they are huge with plenty of run-offs – meaning those who hit it big down the generous fairways and have a wedge in hand should do well.

Last season the event was won by George Coetzee who came through a four-man play-off at a different course to this season, Heritage Golf Club – he is favourite this season and if you agree you can get him at 9/1.

AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open Golf Betting Tips Advised Bets

Scott Hend 5 points each way at 12/1 – The Australian is not usually this short a price, but it is about time he is being properly noticed for having a cracking season so far. Top 6 finishes in his last two starts and a win in Thailand in mid March means I am willing to lump on him this week.

Haydn Porteous 3 points each way at 25/1 – The big hitting South African should enjoy the width of the fairways this week. Won the Joburg Open with some spectacular play in January and has two top 10 finishes since then as well.

Zander Lombard 2 points each way at 50/1 – Three Top 10s and a 12th in his last 5 starts he is another who struggles to keep the ball in play off the tee. The course should therefore suit him this week, he looks a great talent.

Justin Walters 1 point each way at 100/1 – Three top 10s this season, the third of my South African picks did not enjoy the complexities of Valderrama or at the Trophee Hassan II last week, could do well in this weakened field.
