Nedbank Golf Challenge Alexander Bjork ew

Golf - Nedbank Golf Challenge - 09 Nov 09:00

Love these odds. I'm a big fan of Alexander Bjork. His GIR stats caught my eye early in the season and he impressed me in person when I visited Wentworth. His form on paper doesn't stand out but I think he's playing better than his results suggest.

Just 3 starts ago in Italy he shot a 1st Round 64 and was T6 going into the weekend. A poor final round saw him slip down the leaderboard.

He was T3 going into the final round in Crans Sur Sierre, an event played at altitude that has a strong link to the Gary Player Country Club in terms of past results, more about that in another tip. Again a poor final round cost Bjork.

Le Golf National is another course which tests your long game and Bjork picked up his biggest cheque that week finishing 3rd in the Open de France, ranking 4th in GIR, a key skill this week at Sun City.

Early in the season Bjork played some superb golf in South Africa. He led the field in Greens in Regulation in both the SA Open and the Tshwane Open. At Glendower he finished T7 and he led going into the final round of the Tshwane only to finish T5. Time and time again we see the same players perform well here in South Africa so hopefully Bjork continues that trend.

The obvious downside is his lack of course form, he's never played here and traditionally that's been a tough obstacle to overcome. But Bjork has been in that situation week in week out in his rookie season on the European Tour so I doubt it will phase him.

225/1 in a limited field for a player who's game should match up well with the test on offer is madness in my opinion. Let's hope he starts well and gives us some excitement during the event.
