As well as the final event on the LPGA tour we have the final European tour event with the DP World Tour Championship - you can tell the season is winding down although there are still plenty of betting opportunities in the coming weeks - it only really stops Christmas to New Year. In Dubai I have found two players who, at the prices, I think are worthy of an investment.
I like the look of Jonas Blixt this week based mainly on what he has done the last few weeks compared to last season.
CIMB Classic 25th - 13th
HSBC Champions 63rd - 14th
Turkish Airlines 29th - 25th
When you bear in mind he was 12th here last year including a second round 65 then a similar improvement will see him go close this week. Whilst he hasn't added to his two PGA wins since July 2103 he has added a 4th in the US PGA and a 2nd in the US Masters so he can definitely compete on the big stage. He doesn't have a lot of experience in the desert but showed enough last year to make me think he can play it well enough £30 ew 80/1 + I have had £7.50 ew 33/1 Top Continental Euro
My other selection has proved to be a bit controversial in the shpe of 50 year old Miguel Angel Jimenez with people saying he is too short off the tee to be competitive. However it didn't seem to bother him last week when 4th or in a couple of top tens here before plus even shorter hitting Luke Donald has a good record @ Jumeirah. At his age he does have a few quiet weeks these days but he can string some good finishes together and I would rather be on Miguel to close the deal compared to those much lower in price. He finally won the Dubai Deset Classic in 2010 having gone so close many times and overall in the UAE has a 20% top 5 and 40% top 10 strike rate. With temperatures set fair around 29 degrees all well and not a cloud in the sky he will love the weather too £25 ew 100/1 + £25 130. mORe
