South African Open

This week, the DP World Tour presents the golf betting community with the South African Open.
Before I dive into my favorite golf bet for this week’s DP World Tour event let’s take a quick look at the golf course the field will play and the key player statistics that I think are the most important to a player’s success at the South African Open.
The South African Open will be played at the Blair Atholl Golf and Equestrian Estate in Johannesburg, South Africa. The Blair Atholl Golf Course is a par 71 that measures approximately 8,022 yards. This track is the third longest golf course in the world. This course will also present this field with 11 water hazards.
The key player statistics I will be focusing on for this event are driving distance, strokes gained ball striking, GIR (greens in regulation), and putts per GIR.
Now let’s shift our focus to my favorite bet for this week’s South African Open.
Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top 20.
Ashun Wu +300
Ashun Wu has accumulated two top 23 finishes in his last three tournaments played on the DP World Tour, including a 16th place result at the Mallorca Golf Open last month.
Due to the fact that Ashun Wu played so well at the Mallorca Golf Open, I decided to take a hard look at Wu’s statistics relative to the field.
After four rounds of competitive play at the Mallorca Golf Open, relative to the field, Ashun Wu ranked fifth in strokes gained around the green (2.778), 13th in driving accuracy (62.5%), and 18th in driving distance (296 yards).
In summary, I am backing Ashun Wu to top 20 at odds of +300.
