The tour heads back to South Africa this week for the Tshwane Open and tees up on a new venue known locally at the “Country Club,” the Pretoria Country Club came about in the early months of 1909 and was the brainchild of millionaire Mr Julius Jeppe. Jeppe already owned a shooting lodge on the site and used to bring groups over from Johannesburg for fishing and shooting at weekends.

Clarrie Moore who was the first professional at the club – he was also the greenkeeper – was tasked with laying the course out around a lake which he decided was an impossible job so more land was purchased and work began.

After World War II P Watters and Jock Brews – the professional at Killarney Club – were consulted on plans to update the course, the club then employed well-known architect Bob Grimsdell in 1948 to make further improvements with the help of the then resident professional George Van Niekerk and the new course was completed in 1950.

In 2004 the Gary Player Design Group was hired to toughen the course up and Player’s most noticeable change was the plethora of penal pot bunkers that captured any wayward shot to which the members were not happy. The call went up for even more changes and so DDV Design were engaged to make some changes and removed some pot bunkers while remodeling others, leaving the course you will see on TV this week.

My tips to win:

George Coetzee 12/1 – with Ladbrokes – is a past champion here and defended his title last year with a Top 15 finish. Its not been the start to the year the South African would have wanted with his best finish being a sixtieth place at the HSBC Championship in Abu Dhabi, but two seventh place finishes from his last three starts – one of which was at last weeks Joburg Open – should see him turn up this week in a more confident mood.

I tipped Dean Burmester 16/1 – with Coral – last week and he will be very disappointed with his final round 71 which see him slide down the leaderboard when he was in a great position to challenge for the title going into the last round. It was a difficult tournament with the rain delays and being reduced to a 54-hole tournament, but I am sure Dean will learn from that and coming back to a course where he has had two Top 5 finishes in the last two years, I expect him to be in the thick of it again come Sunday.

Another player I will stick with this week is Thomas Aiken 22/1 – with SportingBet – who missed the cut, but it was his first round 71 that let him down and unfortunately his second round 67 wasn’t good enough to see him make the cut. Thomas stated the wraparound season in great making the Top 15 in his first four tournaments – three of which where Top 5 finishes. Aiken has lost his way a little in his last three starts and after missing the cut at the weekend I expect him to be in a determined mood this week.

My each-way tips:

One player who will be looking forward to this week is Dylan Frittelli 33/1 – with SportingBet – who has had two Top 15 finishes in this event over the last couple of years. Dylan had a Top 20 finish last week and he also has three runner-up finishes on the Sunshine Tour and will be looking to finally get one over the line soon.

I have tipped Jorge Campillo 45/1 – with SportingBet – a few times and I am still waiting for the Spaniard to get his breakthrough victory. Jorge has three Top 20 finishes from his five starts on the European Tours wraparound season. Campillo had five Top 10 finishes last year and he certainly has the game to bag his first European Tour title this year.

My outside tips:

There are a few good outside tips this week who have all played well over the Pretoria CC track Justin Walters 100/1 – with StanJames – has had two Top 25 finishes and last year he made the Top 5 – he currently sits in seventh place on the Sunshine Tours OOM. David Horsey 100/1 – with SkyBet – has had two Top 15 over the last couple of years over this track, but has four missed cuts from his five starts this year and finally Merrick Bremner 250/1 – with BetVictor – has a couple of Top 15 in this event one of which was over the Pretoria CC course

As always good luck
