Golf Best Bets – Men’s Australian Open Betting Tips 2022

The time-honoured Australian Open returns returns to Victoria for the first time in 17 years and it is an all-star field featuring the best Australian golfers from across the globe.

Best Bet

Lucas Herbert
Australian Open Winner 2022

Tremendous player who has been outstanding winning three times across the last thre years. Those wins are the Dubai Desert Classic, the Irish Open and the Bermuda Championship – and all are a good guide to success here. Finished 4th in the 2021 Scottish Open and 15th in this year’s Open and they are the best guides. Played well recently. Ranks 7th in Sand Saves and 16th in Putting Average.

Mid-Tier Bet

Matt Jones
Australian Open Winner 2022

The defending champion who won this tournament back in 2019 before the last two editions were cancelled. Also won in 2015 and was runner-up in 2017. All of those were at his home course The Australian but he is truly world class and a big price. His tremendous short game holds him in good stead this week.

Value Bet

Todd Sinnott
Australian Open Winner 2022

Melbourne local who won the TPS Victoria earlier in the year. Also won on the Asian Tour. Form sound with three straight Top 30 finishes. Ranks 3rd in Sand Saves, 3rd in Putting Average and 5th in Scrambling on the Asian Tour.

Longshot Bet

Greg Chalmers
Australian Open Winner 2022

Wily old veteran Greg Chalmers showed he still has plenty to offer with an outstanding T-7 in Queensland last week with the third best final round. He is a two-time winner of this tournament and has a good record on Victorian sandbelt courses. Don’t underestimate at a big price.
