<div><h2 style="text-align:center"><strong>AFR ASIA BANK Mauritius Open</strong></h2><p style="text-align:center"><strong>December 5-8<br />Heritage Golf Club - Bel Ombre, Mauritius<br />Par 71, 6986 yards</strong></p><p>This week's tournament is co-sanctioned by the European, Sunshine and Asian tours. This is the fifth renewal with the Heritage Golf Club playing host in 2015 and 2017. Bel Ombre makes a beautiful and idyllic setting with the course set between mountains and the Indian Ocean. The two tournaments staged at the course suggest it is a decent test for the professionals with fifteen under par being the circa winning score.</p><p> </p><h2>Betting Predictions and Tips</h2><p>In 2015, George Coetzee was the winner at the Heritage Golf Club beating Thorbjorn Olesen in a play-off. He followed up in 2017 with a top 10 finish and it has to be noted that two of his tournament victories have been co-sanctioned events on the European and Sunshine Tours. He finished the European Tour season in superb form with strong performances at the Open De France and Portugal Masters. He followed these by flying back to his home Sunshine Tour to land the Vodacom Origins final. With his optimum conditions this week he has the look of a solid favourite.</p><p>Last week at the Alfred Dunhill Championship, Louis De Jager was a tip both in the outright and place markets. Unfortunately, he let us down, missing the cut. On the strength of a fourth-place finish here in 2017 it will be worth giving him another chance. Often underrated by the bookmakers, his first full season on the European Tour has been a reasonable effort with being runner-up in the Kenya Open the highlight. Noticeably when he was fourth in 2017 he had every opportunity to win but a disappointing level par final round let in his compatriot Dylan Frittelli for the victory. De Jager does however, know how to win with four Sunshine Tour wins in the last five seasons.</p><p>American professional, Johannes Veerman looks a player likely to win soon on the European Tour. Despite a fourth place at the Maybank Championship earlier in the season Veerman needed to return to Qualifying School to regain his playing privileges. He made a nightmare start to the six-round marathon with both opening rounds of 74 leaving him in 143rd however, his last four rounds were four strokes better than any other player, qualifying him for the coming season in 13th position. He has become a battle-hardened competitor from three years prior on the Asian Tour that have resulted in a tournament victory at the Taifong Open but also five second place finishes. Last week at the Alfred Dunhill Championship he made a great start to the new European Tour season and he has an opportunity to rid himself of any thoughts of going back to next year's Qualifying School in the coming weeks. When researching the 2017 event here Veerman finished in 50th position with a poor third round of 75.</p><p>Miguel Tabuena from the Philippines was an impressive fourth in Mauritius in 2017. Since he has gone on to win the Queens Cup on the Asian Tour in 2018 beating Veerman into 2nd place. A steady 2019 for the twenty-five-year-old followed with five top 20 and two top 5 finishes from only fourteen tournaments. We can expect a solid showing this week from Tabuena.</p><p>Frenchman, Romain Langasque finished the 2018/2019 season two weeks ago in Dubai and starts his 2019/2020 campaign at a course he finished 3rd on in 2017. Winner of the Amateur Championship at Carnoustie in 2015 has disappointed a little so far in his professional career with his only win being at the Hopps Open de Province in 2018 on the Challenge Tour. Even if he has been winless on the European Tour in 2019 his consistency has with six top 10s consolidated his position on tour. The logical next step for the talented twenty-four-year-old is his first main tour title which could be this week in Mauritius.</p><div><strong>Recommended Bets:</strong></div><ul> <li>George Coetzee - each way @ 17.00 (16/1) <a href=";a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Get in the game with Unibet">Unibet</a></li> <li>Johannes Veerman - each way @ 81.00 (80/1) <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Well rated bookmaker">Bet365</a></li> <li>Louis De Jager - each way @ 151.00 (150/1) <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Well rated bookmaker">Bet365</a></li></ul><div style="text-align:center"><a href=";a=ec641d03-1e6d-4096-9f5f-d2a6939022d0&amp;f=3"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></div></div>
