DP World Tour Championship

Jumeirah Golf Estates – Earth Course

Par 72, 7675 yards

This week’s year-ending DP World Tour Championship sees many of the qualifiers hopping over from last week’s sister, easy Fire Course at the AVIV DUBAI Championship.

What’s different about the Earth Course?

What do we know about results at the Earth Course over the years?  The one thing that sticks out for me, is a results correlation with the European Masters given Matthew Fitzpatrick is a two-time winner at both and another course specialist, Danny Willett performs well in the Alps event.  Fitzpatrick winning twice tells us that length or lack of it is no issue this week.

Rasmus to keep the Danish flag flying in the desert

What do we know about results at the Earth Course over the years?  The one thing that sticks out for me, is a results correlation with the European Masters given Matthew Fitzpatrick is a two-time winner at both and another course specialist, Danny Willett performs well in the Alps event.  Fitzpatrick winning twice tells us that length or lack of it is no issue this week.

This looks like a week that the Danish phenomenon, Rasmus Hojgaard sweeps back in at the very highest level.  His last notable week on the European Tour was at the European Masters when a last-day charge and a Bernd Wiesberger implosion saw him win at Crans to join the two previously mentioned winners. 

A few low-key weeks have followed for the twenty-year-old understandably but after a solid week at the Portugal Masters, he’s likely ready to contend again at a test that should suit perfectly.   Throughout his short career, Rasmus Hojgaard has shown a propensity to produce strong results in desert climates’ as three solid weeks at the beginning of 2021 prove with a 9th at the Dubai Desert Classic followed by a 6th at the Saudi International.  I was happy to avail myself of the opening quotes of 90/1 on Rasmus Hojgaard in this week’s DP World Tour Championship and the line has now settled and for a guy who knows how to close anything above 60/1 (61.00) is great value each way.

Scrivener to write his own story this week in Dubai

Being in my last year of a BA HONS Degree in Creative and Professional Writing, producing different forms of written work has become part and parcel of my student life, which often involves using my Scrivener app to produce my final writing.  This week it’s a different Scrivener- Jason Scrivener who has an opportunity to write his piece of history as he arrives in Dubai under the radar.  I was encouraged by last week’s effort from off the pace at the sister course in Dubai and that could be the perfect preparation for a second tilt at the season-ending DP World Tour Championship having finished 10th in 2019, on debut.  I am never surprised to see the thirty-two-year-old Aussie produce his best golf in Dubai having built an impressive plethora of form in desert surroundings over the years with his Abu Dhabi Championship runner-up finish at the start of the year being a career-best effort on the European Tour.  It’s difficult to expect a maiden to win the season-ending DP World Tour Championship but Jason Scrivener represents value in the side markets this week.

Jason Scrivener – Top 20 @ 13/5 (3.60)

Jason Scrivener – Top Australian @ 15/4 (4.75)

Jason Scrivener – Top Rest of the World @ 16/1 (17.00)
