WE were knocking at the door again last week but nobody wanted to let us in. What was Hennie Otto my 25-1 antepost tip – doing?

He really Otto know better! Leading the South African Open by two with four holes to play he bogeyed 15 and double-bogeyed 16 for a four-shot swing so we had to settle for a place.

The problem is do I risk picking him again this week? Charl Schwartzel is again too short a price for me so I think I will.

Otto had a great run from the first in the third round to the 14th in the fourth with 16 birdies and an eagle through 32 holes. He also had a triple-bogey seven in that spell but we’ll ignore that. He’s a tough competitor and still a good price so a great each-way bet.

George Coetzee has arrived back in South Africa after a top-20 finish in the IPSA HANDA World of Golf in Australia. He finished 10th last year in this tournament at Leopard Creek and third the year before. It's a course he says is his favourite in the world and I expect big things from him.

Darren Fichardt had a disastrous 77 in the first round last week but fought back with a 65, 69 and a 72 to finish five under. The first round must have knocked the stuffing out of him but I think he’s good enough to do something this week.

Jbe Kruger had a great week finishing joint second even though his driving accuracy this year is a way down at 35 per cent!

He didn’t seem to have a great last season but he’s definitely got the talent. He hits quite a long ball and if he can keep the ball on the fairway he could be a good outsider.

    Mr.F what are your thoughts about Alejandro Canizares ar 30/1?

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Derik, the golf tips are not mine and I’ve not looked at the field. I’m simply taking Coetzer as tipped and maybe the favourite Schwartzel. Otto let me down last week so I’m leaving him out.

    I’m surprised you didn’t mention Garth Mulroy @28/1! 2011 winner of this event and didn’t have a bad defence of that last year when finished T3 I believe it was. Also he finished 10th last week so clearly striking the ball well enough! Him and Kruger for me :)

    Thought I was going to get a placing with Fisher Jnr last week but he was just edged out.
