FREE GOLF BETTING GUIDE AND TIPS
The European Tour moves back to the Middle East and tees up at Al Mouj Golf and as the promotional material highlights in bold letters “Inspired by Oman, designed by Greg Norman.
The 7,342-yard course sits on a 2km stretch of pristine Indian Ocean coastline, with the stunning Hajjar mountain range as its backdrop. This is Oman’s first links style golf course, but this is more an American style links with lush green grass with waste areas, fairway bunkers, water hazards, natural dunes and fescue framing the holes
The course is not new to the European Tour with the Challenge Tours Grand Final having been held here for the last three years and with that tournament being such a success they have been rewarded with a date on the main tour.

My tips to win:
I mentioned earlier this year when tipping Alexander Levy 16/1 – with Coral – that he will be doing all he can to make this years Ryder Cup team on merit and he currently sits nineteenth on the rankings table. Alexander really needs to win if he has any chance of an automatic selection and with all the big names out and first prize of around €275k this represents a real chance for the Frenchman to progress up the rankings and into the Top 10 on the Ryder Cup rankings.
This is the first year that Shubhankar Sharma 22/1 – with SportingBet – has played more than three events on the European tour and the Indian has got off to a great start with two wins on the wraparound tour and another Top 10 from his six starts. Sharma is a multiple winner in his homeland winning five times in India and has challenged several times on the Asian Tour and he will certainly not be fazed going for back-to-back wins this week.
When it comes to the Ryder Cup I am sure Thomas Detry 33/1 – with Coral – would love to be part of a team in the future but I am not sure it’s on his radar for this years event. This is Thomas’s second year on the main tour after having three Top 10 finishes last year – one of which was a runner-up place – he has got off to a solid start again on the wraparound season with four Top 25 finishes from his six starts, two of which have been Top 10s and I expect him to be challenging this week.
My each-way tip:
As many of you know I have tipped Jorge Campillo 40/1 – with Bet365 – several times and feel it is only a matter of time before the Spaniard finally gets his maiden victory on the European Tour. Jorge just missed out in Malaysia taking the runner-up spot firing back-to-back 66s along the way and I am sure that will give him a lot of confidence coming into this week.
It has been three years now since Richie Ramsay 50/1 – with SportingBet – last won on the European Tour and the Scotsman has already notched up his first Top 10 in the Dubai Desert Classic from his three starts so far. Richie had an average year last season and only really challenged at the Irish Open and he will be looking to get in the thick of it more often this year.
My Outside tips:
There are a couple of good outside tips this week. It has not been the greatest of starts to the year for Chris Wood 90/1 – with BetFred – who has teed it up in three events this year and missed all three cuts. The Bristonian has not really challenged since his win at the BMW PGA Championship, but he is a player that when on form has the game to win here this week.
Jens Dantorp 125/1 – with BetFred – really enjoys playing this course and has not been outside the Top 10 in the three years the Challenge Tours Grand Final has been held here. Jens has had a runner-up and Top 5 in his last two starts over the Al Mouj Golf track shooting final rounds of 65 and 66.
Try SSP Chawrasia 200/1 – with SportingBet – whos four wins on the European Tour have all come in India and the Al Mouj course sits right on the Indian Ocean, home sweet home at these odds.
As always good luck
