Chairman's note: We are continuing to test new model in the Winner market. Our tools section has all the picks and the approach is different than before. We added few words about Nedbank, but the main focus in the development of solid system for developing constant profits.
The Nedbank Golf Challenge, known as "Africa's Major," is a pinnacle event on the European Tour, hosted at the illustrious Gary Player Country Club in Sun City, South Africa. This year's tournament, from November 9-12, promises the same prestige, with a history dating back to its inaugural play in 1981 when Johnny Miller triumphed.
The course, spanning 7,831 yards, is a rigorous par-72 challenge. Its narrow fairways, kikuyu grass, and small, well-bunkered greens demand precision, particularly on the signature ninth hole. With the ball travelling roughly 10% further due to altitude, despite its length, power off the tee and accuracy are pivotal.
History and Format
Transformed from an exclusive 12-man invitational to a co-sanctioned event with a wider field, the Nedbank has expanded significantly since its inception. The 2023 field is comprised of 60 top players from the DP World Tour Rankings, the Sunshine Tour Order of Merit winner, and select invitees, including notable US players Max Homa and Justin Thomas.
Players to Watch
From reading quite a few previews, I pinpoint the following players. Tommy Fleetwood, seeking a threepeat at Nedbank after victories in 2019 and 2022, headlines the field. Debutants Max Homa and Justin Thomas add intrigue, while Ryan Fox and Rasmus Hojgaard, both with strong past performances and recent form, are ones to keep an eye on for potential victories.
Betting card for the week
Like last week I want emphasize that we are not investing more that 20% of our bankroll on the weekly basis and we are balancing the card during the tournament. Thus we'll focus on the Winner market which is pretty liquid.
For the sake of simplicity we'll share the picks now only on Tools (with the best selections as "W" and good selections as "w"). This is testing phase and we'll also publish a new way to track results in the off-season. There's a huge importance to balance the card during competition and thus it's hard to share exact betting sizes.
As an individual bettor you can easily balance the risk with in-play lay bets (shorting) with f.e. example 5-10x the bet size. So for example you could sell a 100/1 for a 20/1 or 10/1 with 100 or 200€ or whatever your currency is.
