This week, the DP World Tour travels to South Africa for the 2023 Joburg Open.
The 2023 Joburg Open will be played at the Houghton Golf Club in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Before I discuss my favorite golf bets for the 2023 Joburg Open let's take a look at the top five golfers in overall scoing average on the DP World Tour that are in this week's tournament field.
Top Five Golfers in Scoring Average
1. Adrian Otaegui 70.18
2. Romain Langasque 70.23
3. Hennie Du Plessis 70.42
4. Jayden Schaper 70.44
5. Aaron Cockerill 70.47
Now that we have determined who the the top five golfers with regard to overall scoring average are on the DP World Tour (in this week's field) let's shift our attention to my favorite golf bets for the 2023 Joburg Open.
Here are two golfers to consider placing on your card to finish in the top 20.
Shaun Norris +250
Shaun Norris arrives at this week's event in rather good form. More specifically, Shaun Norris has accumulated four top 17 finishes in his last five events played on the Japan Golf Tour, including an eighth place result at the 2023 Japan Open Golf Championship last month.
It should also be noted that Shaun Norris finished 18th at the 2022 Joburg Open.
Neil Schietekat +1000
The talented South African has accumulated two consecutive top 24 finishes on the Sunshine Tour, including a win at the 2023 Vodacom Origins Of Golf Finals two weeks ago. Additionally, Neil Schietekat finished 19th at the 2022 Joburg Open.
In summary, I am backing Neil Schietekat to post a top 20 finish at odds of +1000. I have to say, I am quite pleased to get odds of +1000. Frankly, in my opinion, I am getting a ton of value in this wager.
