The European Tour travel to the Royal Johannesburg & Kensington GC this week to play in the Joburg Open.
In 2012 Branden Grace won his first European Tour event and the first of four magical victories that season.
This is one of only two events on the European Tour schedule to be contested over more than one course (the other being the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.)
Entrants play one round on the East and one round on the West course before those who make the cut play two further rounds over the longer East course.
The South African players are rightly fancied this week, with Charl Schwartzel being a staggeringly short 5/2
Our five picks for this week are
Danny Willett at 25/1 with Ladbrokes is another with good form at this venue and has had a solid if unspectacular start to the season, currently 21st on the Race to Dubai.
Jbe Kruger at 33/1 with Ladbrokes again has had a solid start to the season and played well at this venue in 2012, and most importantly is South African at a reasonable price.
Jaco Van Zyl at 40/1 with Ladbrokes One of the South Africans in the field with decent odds, finished tied 3rd in last year’s event and will expect to do well again on home soil this week
Ricardo Santos at 40/1 with Ladbrokes has been playing superbly well at the start of 2013 and has two top 10s already this season and currently lies in 14th place on the Race to Dubai.
Dawie Van Der Walt 125/1 with Ladbrokes another South African who did well last year in this event. Take a look at him each way or Top 10 market to see if he can recreate his tied 3rd from 2012.
2pts each way on Danny Willett at 25/1 with Ladbrokes
2pts each way on Jbe Kruger at 33/1 with Ladbrokes
2pts each way on Jaco Van Zyl at 40/1 with Ladbrokes
2pts each way on Ricardo Santos at 40/1 with Ladbrokes
0.5 pts each way on Dawie Van Der Walt at 125/1 with Ladbrokes
