The tour heads back to South Africa this week for the Tshwane Open and tees up on a 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:

I think George Coetzee 12/1 – with SportingBet – is the obvious favourite this week with a lot of the top players either teeing it up in Mexico or using this as a rest week. George comes into this week after his second Top 10 of the wraparound season, which must have been a relief after missing two consecutive cuts. Coetzee is a past champion of this event winning on this track in 2015, he did win another event that year but has not lifted a trophy since on the European Tour and he will be looking to get back to winning ways this week.

I feel Julian Suri 22/1 – with SportingBet – missed cut at the weekend will just be a blip by the end of the year, he did show his true form by firing a second round 67 to just miss out on making it through to the weekend. Julian did have a runner-up in his previous European Tour start and three Top 10s from his last four starts at the end of last season, so I am sure he will be back challenging again this week

This is Marcus Kinhult 25/1 – with Coral – first full year on the European Tour after moving up from the Challenge Tour last year, but he is no stranger to the Tour after leading the Nordea Masters at the half way stage as an amateur. It has been a great start to the season for the Swede and his third place at the weekend tops off a few weeks where he has been inside the Top 20 on two other occasions. Marcus played in this event a few years ago missing the cut, but he has gained a lot more experience since then.

My each-way tips:

A Top 10 finish here a couple of years ago should see *Haydn Porteous* 45/1 – with Bet365 – turn up this week in confident mood, although he did open up with a 65 here last year only to slide further out of contention each day. Its been a bit of a hit and miss year so far for the lad from Johannesburg with three missed cuts from eight starts on the wraparound tour, he did finish in the Top 5 of the OOM on the Sunshine Tour last year and has won on the European Tour in each of the last two years so I think these are good odds.

* PaddyPower have Haydn Porteous 500/1 but I am sure that is a mistake, but if you manage to sneak that bet on!!

Peter Karmis 55/1 – with PaddyPower – had a Top 10 finish in this event last year and comes into this week after a runner-up finish in the Cape Town Open at the weekend where he opened up with a round of 63. It was Peter’s third Top 10 finish on the Sunshine Tour this year and I am sure he will be looking forward to this week.

My outside Tip

Another player who played well at the Cape Town Open was Oliver Bekker 100/1 – with BetFred – who opened up with a 65. Oliver had three wins on the Sunshine Tour last year putting him in the Top 5 on the tours OOM. Oliver has a couple of Top 15 finishes this year on the European Tours wraparound season and I think these represent great odds, for a lad who was born not far from this golf club.

As always good luck
