2017 Tshwane Open Betting Preview

The European Tour remains in South Africa for the Tshwane Open this week and there is a relatively weak field heading to Pretoria Country Club which could open up a few betting angles for an event that is co-sanctioned by the Sunshine Tour...

  • Dean Burmester has gone 3-4 in his past two visits to Pretoria Country Club
  • Adilson Da Silva has finished in the top-20 in all 5 of his appearances at Pretoria (3-13-2-17-15)

The Head Of The Market

Formerly held at Copperleaf in Centurion from 2012 to 2014, the Tshwane Open moved to Pretoria in 2015 and it is a venue that puts a premium on tight and accurate play, while it is also worth noting that it hosted the Vodacom Championship between 2006 and 2010.

It is a layout that George Coetzee knows well as he played here as a youngster and actually won the Tshwane Open in 2015 before tying for 14th during his title defence last year. The South African, who has won five professional titles in his own country, tied 7th in Johannesburg and sets the standard as a 12/1 favourite with Betfred.

The creams does tend to rise to the top in this tournament, as evidenced by Charl Schwartzel's victory twelve months ago, and Dean Burmester heads here in very good form. Burmester, who we tipped last week, tied for 11th in Johannesburg last time out to make it five top-20 finishes in six starts during 2017 and he has a great chance of securing a first European Tour win after finished 3rd and 4th in his past two visits to Pretoria.
Tip #1: Dean Burmester (each way) @ 16/1 with Ladbrokes.

Thomas Aiken also knows this venue well as he finished tied 3rd, tied 9th and solo 3rd in three appearances at the Vodacom Championship between 2006 and 2010, although this will be the first time that he has played the Tshwane Open on this course. Aiken has been a staple of our betting previews this year and this track would appear to be a perfect fit for a player who currently ranks 4th for greens in regulation percentage on the European Tour.

Aiken could only tied for 38th in Johannesburg last time out but he will have few better opportunities to win for the very first time since the 2014 Africa Open as he is one of the stand-out names in this field. We certainly won't be putting anyone off the 22/1 shot but his performance in Johannesburg ensures we will be swerving him this time.

Adilson Da Silva To The Fore

It is Adilson Da Silva who could prove to be the value in this field as he has been quietly going about his business in a nice fashion of late and his course form is very impressive. The Brazilian, who resides in South Africa, has won twelve times on the Sunshine Tour during his career and the 45-year-old has missed just four cuts in his past twenty starts, racking up ten top-25 finishes in the process.

Da Silva opened the Joburg Open with an impressive 65 last week and currently ranks 4th for driving accuracy, which would suggest he could be in business at Pretoria. Indeed, he went 3-13-2-17 in four appearances at the Vodacom Championship when it was held at this venue and he also tied 15th at the Tshwane Open in 2015, which ensures he is a tempting 80/1 in the outright market (Bet Victor) and a stand-out 7/2 for a top-20 finish (Paddy Power).
Tip #2: Adilson Da Silva (each way) @ 80/1 with Bet Victor.
Tip #3: Adilson Da Silva Top-20 Finish @ 7/2 with Paddy Power
