The course: Gary Player CC (Sun City) par 72, 7,827 yards

Key features: Testing rough. Tree or bushlined fairways. Kidney bean and clover shaped greens. Water hazards. False fronts. Strategic bunkering.

The Gary Player CC is at high Altitude, meaning the ~longest track on tour only plays just over 7,000 yards in reality. The big test is controlling distance with approaches into the strange shaped greens with tough pin positions. A high iron ball flight is a weapon.

Premium on:

"Length combined with precision from the tee and a high ball flight from approaches is a good concoction for success around here" - Nicspicks. Greens in regulation is King at the Nedbank golf challenge.

How Nicspicks Works...

Nicspicks provides weekly golf betting tips and previews across the PGA Tour and European Tours. The golf betting tips and insights are free, though you will have to join the members mailing list above to avail of all weekly tips across both tours. I will be implementing a new staking plan and targeting different areas of the markets in 2020 to try and tackle the current evolution of the golf betting game, which has now become so competitive, and IMO the terms we are betting against the bookmakers with are for the most part, outdated.

We will be betting using odds on Betfair Sportsbook where possible. Betfair offer each way 7 and even 8 places on most events throughout the year. £100 in free bets are on offer when you sign up through this link. In play trading will be a feature on Nicspicks throughout the season and a Betfair exchange account is also essential to get involved in this. A free £20 bet for the exchange can be claimed below:
