Golf: Jonsson Workwear Open Bet Preview
Venue: The Club at Steyn City, South Africa.
Dates: Thursday 23rd – Sunday 26th March 2023
The European Tour continues in Africa with the Jonsson Workwear Open at The Club in Steyn City in South Africa. The event made its debut in 2023, with the prominence of African golf and the European Tour continuing to grow on an exponential scale. With a packed field, full of some of the biggest names in both European and African golf and a hefty 1.3 million euros in the prize pot, there is plenty to play for at The Club at Steyn City this week.
Plenty of the biggest names on the DP World Tour are present in South Africa this week meaning it should be a hotly contested event:-
Englishman Jordan Smith has struggled on the DP World Tour a little this year, but the Englishman remains a class act, capable of turning it on in an instant.
Spaniard Adri Arnaus is starting to put the consistent performances needed in on the European Tour and he looks to be one of the men to beat here in South Africa – coming off the back of a runners up spot last time out.
Dutchman Joost Luiten remains a classy operator, who should relish playing conditions here in South Africa, following a solid week last time out.
George Coetzee – 50/1
Home favourite George Coetzee should relish playing conditions here in Steyn City and he too arrives here in relatively solid form on the DP World Tour this season.
Scot Connor Syme came mightily close to winning last time out and with his performances and results continually improving, he is more than in with a shot here.
1st Round Leader
Producing the goods over 72 holes is often the most difficult thing for any golfer to do therefore here are our first round leader picks:-
South African Zander Lombard is a very capable performer, even if his results of late haven’t suggested that and he will be keen to get going quickly here.
Former Ryder Cup player Ross Fisher is one of the cleanest ball strikers around and having a little bit of form in recent weeks, he could get off to a flyer here at Steyn City.
Top Ten Finish
With so many quality players assembled here in South Africa, getting into the winning enclosure could be tough but there are plenty of candidates to finish in the top 10 come Sunday:-
Malaysian Gavin Green has been in decent form throughout 2023 and he will be looking to back that up with a top 10 finish here in South Africa.
Another South African hoping to make the most of familiar surroundings is Brandon Stone, who is a very capable performer, particularly if conditions suit.
Englishman Matthew Southgate is a man searching for form, but his accurate ball striking could be the difference here in unfamiliar conditions for all in South Africa this week.
