ISPS Handa Vic Open

The European Tour event this week continues its trip all around the World, except for Europe, with the latest offering the ISPS Handa Vic Open from 13th Beach Golf Links in Barwon Heads, Victoria.

After last week’s stop off in Saudi Arabia we return to Australia and it's no surprise that the majority of the field is made up of Australian players.

This is a new tournament to the European Tour calendar and as we don't have any previous course history to guide us and a poor field gathered, I would suggest that we keep the stakes very small on this event.

This is probably the most competitive golf tournaments of 2019 with the bookies finding it hard to find a clear favourite with Jason Scrivener given the unwanted take at the tournament favourite and he heads at a best price of 14/1.

Scrivener is in form with four top 20 finishes in his last four starts, but the pressure of being the tournament favourite in front of his home crowd is something that he's never had to deal with and that is one thing that would concern me if backing Scrivener this week.

Three From The Tee

Despite all the home talent in the field, I believe this week we need to avoid the Australians when looking for a winner and my headline tip is South Africa's JUSTIN HARDING who looks very interesting at 25/1.

Harding has started the new season in fine fashion with four top 15 finishes in his five starts and with four titles last year, he's a proven winner, who is playing well and deserves to be shorter in the betting.

Last week in a star studded field at the Saudi International, Harding finished in a very impressive 11th after he opened with an excellent round of 65, but closed with an even more impressive 63 which will see him arrive in Australia full of confidence and ready to mount a serious challenge.

Oliver Wilson @ 40/1 Paddy Power

My other two selections are both English and the first one is OLIVER WILSON who looks a nice each-way play at 40/1.

Wilson, has been tipped in this column already this season and he always gives us a great run for our money and I am expecting more of the same this weekend. It's been a tough couple of years for the 30 year-old, but he is showing some of the form that saw him make the European Ryder Cup team in 2008 after top five finishes in his last two starts.

This is a venue where accuracy and putting will win the event rather than distance and those are the two areas of the game where Wilson excels and at 40/1 for a European Tour winner and Ryder Cup star in a below average field those are odds that are certainly worth taking.

Andrew Johnston @ 40/1 bet365

My final selection is ANDREW "BEEF" JOHNSTON again at 40/1 this time with bet365.

Johnston will have all the support from the crowd and he's been speaking publicly how he feels that his game is coming back to his best and that he believs he will be challenging for titles again very soon after a decent showing in Dubai.

Johnston recorded his last top 10 finish in Australia in December and he arrives on the back of that good run in Dubai where he finished in 24th at the Dubai Desert Classic and in a tournament that won't take much winning, if he can get off to a good start and with the crowd behind him and his confidence back, he will be very dangerous.
