Joburg Open Picks - Keep an Eye On Abery

Joburg Open Picks

Pick 1: Darren Clarke E/W @ 25/1 (Bet365) Clarke was 1 of the favourites last week in many people's book but I thought I'd give him a week to walk off the christmas turkey. This week's Joburg Open looks a better tournament for the Irish man. Fine record at Royal Joburg & Kensington including a 2nd place finish last year. Slow greens will suit.

Pick 2: Jaco Van Zyl E/W @ 20/1 (Bet365) Decent record on the course(s) and a pick from last week that I'll stick with after his top 5 finish for us. He looked in good form and could push hard at the Joburg Open this week.


Pick 3: JB Kruger E/W @ 30/1 (general) Great player on home soil and 1 I've been watching closely on the African golf swing. The putter wasn't working for him last week on the final day and that along with a double early on the home stretch prevented him from making a strong charge for the title

Pick 4: Keite Horne E/W @ 66/1 (Totesport) Fine record in the Joburg Open, finishing joint 2nd last year with Darren Clarke and back on form last week at the Africa Open.

Sleeper Watch:

Pick 5: Warren Abery E/W @ 250/1 (Skybet) Has decent tournament and current form and could be 1 that comes in under the radar at the Joburg Open this week.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Bryan pioneered the concept of Expected Strokes Gained Course Fit (xSGF) in golf betting. xSGF can be predicted using my model below. For prospective golf betting tips it projects ahead of time how many shots a player is expected to pick up per round on average on a particular golf course. It's weighed against a neutral golf course of the same rating.

Golf Betting Tips Model

Input up to date player and course data (from the upcoming course fit manual 2024) into this interactive golf betting model. My course fit profiling model for golf betting tips uses highly evolved golf nuance and betting intuition, precise parameters and inputs based on Bayesian analysis, plus years of empirical evidence through observing, betting and documenting golf and stats.

What is Progressive Form in Golf Betting?

Progressive form in golf betting differs from current form in that players are showing a trend in the right direction in their recent scoring. Trending form has a high predictive value in golf betting and can also catch players under the radar at an inflated price vs their true betting odds.
