FREE GOLF BETTING GUIDE AND TIPS
Joachim B Hansen
This is the first Greg Norman designed track in Dubai along with sister course Fire at the Jumeirah Golf Estates. The Earth course is a very open layout with generous fairways and large sloping greens, so position is all-important.
Talk about bringing coals to Newcastle, or Sand to Dubai, which is exactly what has happened here. The bleached white sand in the fairway waste areas and bunkers was imported from North Carolina.
There really isn’t too much rough to worry about, but the players will have tricky recovery shots off the red wood chips if they do manage to miss these wide fairways.
The most challenging hole is the final hole, with its rock-lined stream meandering up the middle of its 620-yard fairway. The hole gently climbs to the huge and undulating green, a fitting crescendo to this 7706 yards track.
Jumeirah Golf Estates have overseeded the tees, fairways and rough on the Earth course with ryegrass, offering greater contrast and definition to the brilliant white bunkers and barkmulched landscape areas. The course will prove to be a tougher test this year for the players than in 2009 and 2010, with more of a premium being placed on finding the fairways with tee shots.

My tips to Win:
With two wins, a runner-up and three other Top 5s from his nine starts here Rory McIlroy 9/2 with UniBet will be the man to beat this week. In fact, Rory has never been outside the Top 20 every time he has played in this event and coming into this week on the back of his WGC HSBC win McIlroy was hoping he could add the DP Tour Championship to his FedEx Cup win. Unfortunately for him because of Bernd Wiesbergers 30/1 with UniBet third place win at the Nedbank Challenge at the weekend that chance has been lost, how much that will affect Rorys performance this week I dont know, but he will certainly rue not playing in South Africa.
One player that can win the Race to Dubai and also comes into this week on the back of a win is Jon Rahm 7/1 with UniBet having won the Spanish Open, the first back-to-back win of that tournament since Marcelino Morcillo back in 1948-49, something his heros Seve and Sergio never achieved. Jon has only played in this event twice and has a win and a Top 5 finish and even though he has not played in a tournament for over a month, he certainly has a lot to play for.
Another past champion of this event and another player that can win the Race to Dubai is Matthew Fitzpatrick 22/1 with BetFair who also has two other Top 15 finishes including a Top 5 the year before that win. Matthew comes into this week on the back of three Top 10s from his last three starts, one of which was a runner-up at the Italian Open his fourth of this wraparound season and to finally get that win and win the OOM is certainly a lot of motivation.
I have tipped Matthias Schwab 40/1 with SkyBet a few times this year and he has certainly won us some money with his five Top 5 finishes, that includes two runner-up places one of which was in his last event at the Turkish Airlines Open where he lost in a 6-way play-off. Matthias will be looking to get his first European Tour win under his belt, he is in great form and what better place to achieve that then at the DP World Tour Championship.
Having already won the European Tours rookie of the year award Robert Macintyre 35/1 with BetFred will be looking to put a win next to his name and get that maiden tour victory out of the way. Robert is another player with multiple runner-up finishes this year three and with four Top 20s in his last four starts, three of which were Top 10s he comes into this week in great form.
Try Joachim B Hansen 150/1 with BetFred
As always good luck
