Winter rules have come into force at golf clubs around Britain and the professional ranks are also gearing up for the change in the weather. There are just two more events left on the European Tour. Before the 2017 Race to Dubai ends next week, many of the Tour’s best players have head to Sun City for a crack at this week’s Nedbank Golf Challenge. The PGA Tour has also headed towards the sun with the increasingly popular OHL Classic on Mexico’s east coast.

Nedbank Golf Challenge Betting Tips and Preview
Tommy Fleetwood headed to Antalya last week knowing that victory would all but sew up the Race to Dubai title. Unfortunately, the 26-year-old couldn’t find his best golf at the Regnum Carya but things could be different at Gary Player Country Club.
The 7,831 yard, par 72 course demands a certain amount of power off the tee but driving accuracy is more important than how far you hit it. Nobody has hit a higher percentage of fairways from the tee than Fleetwood this season and there’s no doubt he gives it a good whack as well.
Hitting the small greens at Sun City in regulation is also vital. Fleetwood also ranks top of the European Tour stats for greens in regulation percentage. He’s used his wonderful ball striking for three solid finishes at Gary Player CC in the past and now that he’s playing better than ever, he can kick on to claim another huge win at 20/1 with Coral.
Away from the top of the betting, there are some exciting each way options for the Nedbank Golf Challenge. Richie Ramsay (100/1 with Coral) and Lucas Bjerregaard are both very good drivers of the ball who have played some very good golf in recent months while Lee Westwood (45/1 with Coral) has won three times before at this venue.
OHL Classic Betting Tips and Preview
While the players in South Africa have to contend with a course that’s the best part of 8,000 yards, the venue for the OHL Classic doesn’t even top 7,000. The Greg Norman designed El Camaleon Golf Club is a par 71 layout that puts a premium on control and accuracy over power.
It’s therefore no surprise that two quality ball strikers – Pat Perez and Graeme McDowell – took the title in the last two years. Could the next experienced pro to win be Kevin Streelman?
The 39-year-old American has certainly played good golf at El Camaleon before with two finishes of fourth or better. He also possesses a quality game from tee to green and can cope with the blustery conditions that are forecast for the weekend.
At 55/1 with Betfred, Streelman looks good value for the win. However, he’s not the only tempting option. Stewart Cink at 80/1 with Ladbrokes and Anirban Lahiri at 50/1 with Coral both possess the sort of game required to win the OHL Classic so look for them to both challenge come Sunday.
