SERGO GARCIA did us proud with a blemish free seven-under 65 on the last day to win the Qatar Masters last weekend after a play-off with Mikko Illonen.

It was the second year running Garcia had a final-day flourish only this time he won after being tipped at 8-1.

Rory McIlroy must be the main bet this week in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. After losing two weeks ago by one after a two-shot penalty he’ll be up to make amends.

Rafa Cabrera Bello looks another good one. He has finished third and fourth in the first two competitions of the “Desert Swing” and can be there or thereabouts at the Emirates Golf Club. He’s had six sub-70 rounds in his last two competitions so likes the desert courses.

I also have an inkling for Joos Luiten who I backed for the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship two weeks ago. He didn’t play badly at all there in finishing sixth and could go a bit higher this week.

Thorbjorn Olesen is one I have been keeping my eye on in the past year and has the potential to be a real star. He didn’t have a good Abu Dhabi tournament but last week had four sub-70 rounds to finish tied for third and looks like coming into form.

He had a good early season in the desert last year finishing 2nd, 22nd and tied for third in this tournament behind Stephen Gallacher.

Meanwhile, over at the Phoenix Open three times winner Phil Mickelson, Brandt Snedeker, Hunter Mahan and Bubba Watson are all here to take on the Scottsdale Course.

After tipping Mickelson last week I am tempted again this week and I'll be on as long as he displays no problems after suffering from back trouble.

Snedeker was runner-up last year and although he’s not had a great start to this season he could go close again.

Graham DeLaet has had a steady start to the season with three top-10 finishes, including a second last week, so could be worth an each way.

Rafa Cabrera Bella 1pt ew (25-1, various)

      Hey Paul I know your new to this site, but if you carry on we will have to give a knighthood for such good tipping! dunno how you do it

  3. Alasu57 7 years ago

    Paul, great tipping mate, you got any for Phoenix to go with these Dubai tips ?

  4. paul 7 years ago

    Thanks alasu57 and cooldude reasons for these tips

    Henrik Stenson
    enjoyed a stellar year five PGA Tour wins last season
    With the top-two short priced we are getting a reasonable price of 11/1
    The 37-year-old wasn’t at his best when missing the cut in Abu Dhabi, his first start of the year, but he improved in Qatar finishing T28 with a closing round of 67.

    Peter Uihlein )

    i find it hard not to back him every week. His game should be perfect for this course,He was on average about 10th in putting last week. and The par 5s in are where he will be at his best this week.

    marce seim

    got a real feeling about the German this week. This course should be the perfect fit for him and he has had two top 5 finishes here in 2012 and 2004. and last week in Qatar he was never outside the top 10 in putts there are several reasons to expect an improved showing in Dubai.In Qatar he didn’t find nearly enough fairways and the thick rough meant he was always going to struggle to hit greens and make birdies. this course is more forgiving

    Mikko Ilonen ,

    can’t ignore him at such high odds. For someone to play so well last week and still get these odds definitely a form player he had accurate iron-play through last week. And he has finished 6th on this track before.

    Thongchai Jaidee

    has started season in fine form and can continue that run in Dubai. He has finished 9-T10-T33 in his last three starts, shooting only two rounds over par during that period.had to settle for a top-ten finish in abu 34 ‘Desert Swing’ events he has made the cut 31 times.

    Seve Benson

    did really well last week and I think he could do better this week last week rounds 68 71 69 69 277 -11 finished 13th n the money 5 times last year and can see an improvement from this

    others to consider are thorbjoen olsen Stephen gallacher and Canizares, Alejandro

    Im sticking with David Howell in the Dubai Desert Classic. I’ll stick with him every week until he gets a win. He’s available at 150/1.

    My each way tip in the Phoenix Open is Brendan Steele at around 66/1. He has finished in top 6 last two years.

    Phoenix Tips and why

    Bubba Watson 30/1
    form: 23-30-3
    3rd in proximity to the hole. Driving distance: 2nd
    Power fade for the left hander sets up lovely for the track. Aggressive birdie making style and shot making ability with the short irons should stand him in good stead

    Marc Leishman 50/1
    couldn’t capitalize on some superb golf last week to grab the win, that T2 was a solid performance. He was the other golfer to finish T1 for GIR, 1st for proximity to the hole and 16th in driving distance.
    doesn’t have the best history here, his best finish a T19 2 years ago, but could be a dangerous

    Charley Hoffman (50/1

    I have gone with Charley Hoffman many times in but he sometimes putts like my son
    having recorded 2 top 10s, an impressive T7 last week, when he shot a faultless 67 looks like the tide may turn

    Webb Simpson 16/1

    has finished 1-T7-5-T3-T23
    has finished eighth on his last two visits to Scottsdale
    seems to coming back to form when he finished 2nd in the money list a few years back and

    now for my longshots

    K. Aphibarnrat 175/1
    form: 24-18-9-5
    Worth a speculative play and maybe one to look at

    N Colsaerts 110/1

    Key stats: 5th in strokes gained putting; 18th in driving distance.
    prominent over the first few days at Torrey Pines. Holing out beautifully from inside 10ft and if he combines that with his big hitting at TPC Scottsdale, you have a recipe for success. Went 65-75 I backed last week and I will stick with him

    Kevin Stadler 125/1

    not someone to get carried away no wins in 238 starts
    he lives in Scottsdale, Arizona and TPC Scottsdale is his local courseand that’s my only reason

    Roberto Castro 125/1
    debut on tour in 2012, starting to compete in the higher echelons of the leaderboard

    four top-ten finishes, in the last 6 months the AT&T National, the Deutsche Bank and Tour Championship to name 2.
    closed with encouraging rounds of 66-64 in the Humana Challenge before missing the cut at Torrey Pines, finished T16, last year

    Rory Sabbatini

    six time winner on tour but misses far too many cuts I saw enough to risk a long shot at the farmers.
    closed to within four of the lead on the final day at before slipping back
    he normally plays well here.five top-25 finishes scoring average of 69.43 when you look at Phil Mickelson who averages 68.09
