<div><h2>Nedbank Golf Challenge</h2><p><strong>Gary Player Country Club, Sun City, South Africa</strong></p><p>A long-standing tournament on the European Tour that dates back to 1981 and previously known as the Million Dollar Challenge. A limited small field event means less bets than normal but plenty of options in the article to consider.</p><p>Australian, Jason Scrivener is often a perfect type of golfer to support in side markets because when he finds form he tends to hold it for a few weeks. Last season at the Gary Player Country Club, Scrivener put up an impressive debut finishing 16th despite a poor second round of 76. Without that round Scrivener would have been challenging for the title and at least a top 5 finish. After a fast start to 2019, Scrivener's form dipped through the summer months. Then a few weeks ago at the Open De Espanà a top 10 finish bucked the trend and last week in Turkey another good effort where he finished in 21st despite a poor third round means he is a bet for a top 20 finish this week.</p><p>In 2017 Scott Jamieson, made an impressive debut at Sun City with a runner-up finish to Branden Grace. This will be the first time he returns, coming on the back of a 10th place at last week's Turkish Airlines Open. The Scot, has found winning difficult during his European Tour career but is a top performer and has the perfect profile to support this week in the side markets.</p><p>Belgian, Thomas Detry has been consistent rather than spectacular this season. This time last year he was in a superlative run of form that resulted in a 7th place finish in the Nedbank Golf Challenge and it looked a matter of time before he landed his maiden European Tour title. At the Open de France and last week's Turkish Airlines Open he showed a palpable improvement so better things look close for Detry.</p><p>Benjamin Hebert is a similar player to Scrivener and he has three solid years experience at Sun City to draw on. I noticed he played his best Open de France a few weeks ago at a course he previously appeared to dislike. Last week in Turkey he again looked in good form making the play-off and we know he has other two runner up finishes on the European Tour in the last twelve months at the Scottish Open and Volvo China Open. That makes four top 10 finishes in the season overall and he makes appeal each-way in Top Continental European market with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a> at 29.00 this week.</p><p>Twelve months ago, Englishman, Aaron Rai was in supreme form with a top 10 here, followed by winning the Hong Kong Open on his final start of 2018. Last week in Turkey he looked back in form with only a poor third round of 75 undermining his effort. 2019 has been a disappointment up to now with only four top 20 finishes but there is still time for this top ball striker to put it right.</p><p>Since three top 6 finishes in succession in March, Nacho Elvira has lost his form completely. Maybe missing so many good opportunities to win his maiden European Tour title in a short space of time played on his mind. That current poor form makes last week's opening two rounds at the Turkish Airlines Open eye-catching, so when you add in two top 30 finishes in Sun City in the last three years it gives reason to consider a bet in the top 20 market.</p><p>Twenty-four-year-old South African, Zander Lombard is still searching for his first tournament win on the European Tour despite some high-level performances. He was the 54 hole leader of the 2018 Open Championship and has some course experience at Sun City when playing the Sunshine Tour. A 7th place finish in the Open De Espanà last month and a solid week in Turkey suggest a good performance this week and a chance to put his course experience to good use.</p><h2><strong>Recommended Bets</strong></h2><ul> <li>Jason Scrivener – Top 20 @ 3.50 (5/2) <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Paddy Power</a></li> <li>Scott Jamieson – Top 20 @ 3.60 (13/5) <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Paddy Power</a></li> <li>Benjamin Hebert – each-way - Top Continental European @ 29.00 (28/1) <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a></li></ul></div>
