European Golf: Stick with Stone…

The European Tour stays in South Africa this week, with the famed Leopard Creek course hosting the Alfred Dunhill Championship.

This is the second of a three-tournament swing in the Rainbow Nation, and we’re going to stick with our pick for the first – Brandon Stone. The talented home player finished fourth last week at Randpark, coming back from a month off to produce a very solid performance. This lines him up very well for this week, where he returns to a course on which he has already shown his liking, winning in 2016 and coming third in 2018.

Straight and long off the tee, Stone should appreciate this tougher test, particularly as we see this field as being big on numbers but short of true quality. We see his fellow countryman Wilco Nienaber as the main danger, but take Stone with a large degree of confidence, hence a two-point pick.

Recommendation:

Stone to win, 2 pts, at 12/1, William Hill
