Golf Best Bets – DP World Tour Championship Betting Tips 2023

The DP World Tour season reaches its finale with the DP World Tour Championship at the Jumeirah Golf Estates with a crack field that includes three of the worlds top four players.

Best Bet

Tyrell Hatton
DP World Tour Championship Winner 2023

Fabulous player who does his best work in the desert and on links courses. Won both the Alfred Dunhill Links and the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and had top seven finishes in both events in 2022. Ranks 7th on the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained: Putting while 11th in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green and 14th in Putting Average. Runner-up here twice including last year with seven Top 16 finishes from nine starts.

Mid-Tier Bet

Nicolai Hojgaard
DP World Tour Championship Winner 2023

Danish star who finished fourth here at his only start. The course certainly suits as it favours length with good putting. Ranks 2nd in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green, 3rd in Birdie or Better, 3rd in Putting Average, 6th in Driving Distance and Top 15 in Par 5 Scoring, GIR and Strokes Gained: Approach. A perfect setup this week.

Value Bet

Thorbjorn Olesen
DP World Tour Championship Winner 2023

Olesen was outstanding last week as he pushed Max Homa deep at Sun City. Profiles a treat. Ranks Top 12 in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green, Putting Average, Birdie or Better, Par 5 Scoring, Strokes Gained: Approach and GIR. Form on the correlation courses is outstanding with Top 16 finishes at the 2023 Dubai Desert Classic, the last two Qatar Masters and the 2021 Dubai Championship. Finished Top 9 in three straight.

Longshot Bet

Matt Wallace
DP World Tour Championship Winner 2023

Englishman Matt Wallace has been flying with three Top 15 finishes in his last five starts. Played here three times and has a runner-up finish. Ranks 3rd in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green, 4th in GIR and 9th in Strokes Gained: Approach. Looks a big price.
