SWEDE Hen­rik Sten­son has emerged as Sun­bet’s early favourite to win this year’s Ned­bank Golf Chal­lenge, hosted by Gary Player, to be played at Sun City’s Gary Player Coun­try Club from Novem­ber 9-12.

Sten­son won the ti­tle in 2008 and has also fin­ished run­ner-up three times. This year the tour­na­ment forms part of the Euro­pean Tour’s pres­ti­gious Rolex Se­ries of eight ex­clu­sive events each with a min­i­mum prize fund of US$7 mil­lion.

In Sun­bet’s Ante-Post odds (com­piled from the Turk­ish Air­lines Open and spec­u­la­tion. If a punter places a bet on a player and he fails to win, the per­son will be re­funded their bet. Th­ese odds and mar­kets may be sub­ject to change with­out no­tice at Sun­bet’s dis­cre­tion), Sten­son is an 8/1 favourite to win “Africa’s Ma­jor”.

English­man Tyrrell Hat­ton is the next favourite at 11/1, while de­fend­ing cham­pion Alex Noren is 16/1.

Louis Oosthuizen is the lead­ing South African favourite at 16/1, fol­lowed by Charl Schwartzel at 18/1 and Bran­den Grace at 20/1.

Pre-tour na­ment bets af­ford pun­ters the op­por­tu­nity of get­ting fan­tas­tic odds on the pre­dicted win­ner of the Ned­bank Golf Chal­lenge as il­lus­trated by Danny Wil­let’s 25/1 odds in 2014, Marc Leish­man’s 66/1 in 2015 and Alex Noren’s 20/1 in 2016.

“The Ned­bank Golf Chal­lenge, hosted by Gary Player, is one of the high­lights of the South African sport­ing cal­en­dar and we’re cer­tainly look­ing for­ward to an ex­cit­ing tour­na­ment,” said Jonathan Kahn, Sun­bet’s General Man­ager: Sports Bet­ting.

“With all of the top play­ers in at­ten­dance, bet­ting on the out­right win­ner is sure to be a chal­lenge but there’s also a host of al­ter­na­tive bets that of­fer great value such as the round leader for the day and the top 10 and 5 play­ers.”
