The European tour travels back to South Africa after the Desert swing for the Tshwane Open which will be held at the Pretoria course for the second year running. It's a trappy little berting heat and I have only had a couple of bets but may well add in running.
Clement Sordet is a bet at the price purely based on his potential and what he has achieved in his fledgeling career. He was a top amateur and won on the Alps tour as an amateur aged 19 in 2011. Last year he turned pro and won on just his 4th start on the Challenge Tour but its what he did in Thailand in December that caught my eye. He finished tied 2nd to Donaldson alongside Westwood and beating An and Garcia by four and Kaymer by six. A performance akin to that which also gained him an Open slot should see him go close here. £40 ew 90/1 + £20 95 and £30 top 10 12/1 both on Betfair.
I found it hard to pick one of the four young South Africans who have shown so much in their homeland already this season but have gone for one slightly older and at a much bigger price. Dylan Frittelli has been around a bit longer but has always had potential - one of his best results came when he lost in the playoff before Christmas in the Australian PGA Championship. He finished 18th at Glendower improving throughout the week and was a solid 10th here last year and I am not put off by the missed cut in the Joburg Open as he has never played well there £40 ew 100/1
Over in the States I have been through the Champions tour event with a fine toothcomb trying to unearth another Esteban Toledo. I was drawn to the fact that course form is not really relevant and debutants have a good record. Ian Woosnam stuck out as a big price - he has never played here before but warrants some respect as he won and was 3rd on this tour last year. He closed with a pair of 69's at the weekend after a tardy start and if he carries that momentum into this week then he could challenge £12.50 ew 250/1
