The European Tour stays on the African Continent this week for the Joburg Open. Since its inauguration back in 2007 the Joburg Open has only been won three times by non South African players and I feel we will again see a home victory again here this week, hence the fact only two of my tips are non South African player.

The Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club came into being after a merger of the former Royal Johannesburg Golf Club and the former Kensington Golf Club in 1998. The improvements to the Clubhouse and both courses at Royal Johannesburg were funded by the sale of the Kensington property.

The result is two outstanding courses with superb facilities. The Johannesburg Golf Club was founded on 6 November 1890 where members of the (Johannesburg Golf) Club first began playing “behind Hospital Hill” in an area that later became known as Clarendon Circle and Empire Road.

The rapid development of the city has seen the club move four times before finally settling in 1909 on the land it occupies today. During a visit to Johannesburg in 1930, the Prince of Wales, who later became King Edward VIII, played the course. Six months later he agreed to become its patron. In July 1931 a letter was received confirming that King George V had graciously consented to the “Royal” prefix being added to the club’s name.

My tips to win:

Its hard to ignore someone who has won this event twice and had a Top 10 finish here last year and Richard Sterne 18/1 – with SportingBet – will be looking to make it three wins in this tournament. Richard has only played once so far on this years wraparound season and that was to take the runner-up spot at the Alfred Dunhill Championship where he currently also sits on the Sunshine Tour’s order of merit.

I have tipped Thomas Aiken 22/1 – with Bet365 – a few times this year and the South African has already notched up three Top 15 finishes from five starts – two of those where in the Top 5. Thomas has won on home soil before but that was at the Africa Open and being a Johannesburg boy, I am sure he would love to add his hometown Open Championship to his trophy cabinet

This is Haotong Li 28/1 – with SportingBet – second full year on the European Tour and with a win and a runner-up last year he will be looking to push on this season. Haotong already has a Top 5 finish from his last outing at the Maybank Championship and should be in confident mood this week.

My each-way tips

Dean Burmester 33/1 – with Bet365 – has only been outside the Top 20 once in four starts on the wraparound season and his forth place finish on home soil at the South African Open Championship last month shows he is able to handle the pressure of playing in front of a partisan crowed. Dean has six wins on the Sunshine Tour and currently sits in third place on their OOM.

I am still waiting for Paul Dunne 55/1 – with Bet365 – to breakthrough and challenge in an event, the Irishman has all the attributes to do well on tour but hasn’t quite kicked on after leading the Open Championship on the final day back in 2015. Paul has played some steady golf but has not added yet added a couple of low round, which would put him into position. He did shoot 63 here last year that helped him make the Top 10 and I am hoping those positive vibes will help him again when he tees it up here this week.

My outside tip:

There are a couple of good outside bets this week first up is Justin Walters 80/1 – with Ladbrokes – who finished in third place last year and while he has not had a great start to the year his best performance came on home soil and currently sits in sixth place on the Sunshine Tour OOM. David Drysdale 100/1 – with BetVictor – is someone who seems to enjoy this track with several Top 15 finishes one of which was a third place and he has two Top 11 finishes in this seasons SA events. And Lastly Scott Jamieson 100/1 – with PaddyPower – who had a Top 5 finish at the Alfred Dunhill Championship and had a sixth place finish here a few years ago

As always good luck
