SDC Championship betting tips

The bunkered Bet

Ewen Ferguson 16/1

The Scot was one of many who were unfortunate to bump into runaway winner Matthew Baldwin last year, resulting in a T3 finish. Ferguson has built a strong record in South Africa and looks primed for another strong bid, with accuracy off the tee and a strong approach necessary tools. Meanwhile, consecutive top ten finishes are a fine indicator of Ferguson’s game right now.

Please gamble responsibly.
