January 27, 2022 2:00 am EDT
This week, the DP World Tour presents golf fans with the 2022 Dubai Desert Classic.
Before I discuss my favorite tournament matchup bets for the 2022 Dubai Desert Classic let’s take a look at the current leaders in scoring average on the DP World Tour that are in this week’s field.
Top Five Golfers in Scoring Average
- Jacques Kruyswijk 69.24
- Paul Casey 69.33
- Dean Burmester 69.57
- Richard Bland 69.63
- Viktor Hovland 69.64
Now that we have determined who the top five golfers with regard to scoring average are on the DP World Tour (in this week’s field) let’s shift our attention to my favorite tournament matchup bets for this week’s 2022 Dubai Desert Classic.
Alexander Bjork -115 over Victor Perez
Alexander Bjork arrives at this week’s 2022 Dubai Desert Classic on the heels of three consecutive top 20 finishes on the DP World Tour, including a second place result at the DP World Tour Championship in November.
Bjork also checks the box for me when it comes to previous event history. Alexander Bjork finished sixth at the 2018 Dubai Desert Classic.

Ian Poulter -115 over Lee Westwood
Ian Poulter has accumulated two consecutive top six finishes on the DP World Tour, including a sixth place result at the 2022 Abu Dhabi Championship last week.
Due to the fact that Poulter played so well at last week’s event I decided to take a hard look at Poulter’s player statistics relative to the 2022 Abu Dhabi Championship field. Through four rounds of competitive play at the 2022 Abu Dhabi Championship, in relation to the field, Ian Poulter ranked third in scrambling, 19th in GIR (greens in regulation), 16th in putting average, and 11th in strokes gained tee to green.
Since 2017, Ian Poulter has played the Abu Dhabi Championship five times. In those five tournaments just mentioned, Poulter has accumulated four top 16 finishes, including a third place result at the 2019 Abu Dhabi Championship.
