"The RSM Classic has been a great event for outsiders so Steve Rawlings makes the case for three to get in-the-mix at long-odds this year."

RSM Classic - The Punter's preview

Steve Rawlings enjoyed the US Masters last weekend and, with the PGA Tour staying in Georgia for the RSM, he's aiming for another good week.

He says: At just 22, Redman looks to have a fabulous future and he fits the RSM Classic winner mould perfectly. He's finished inside the first four places in three of his last seven starts and if he putts as well as he normally does, he should be there or thereabouts.

Back Doc Redman @ 60.059/1

RSM Classic - Each-way tips

Dave Tindall makes the case for his three each-way selections from the Betfair Sportsbook for the RSM Classic, including a 44-year-old American.

He says: "Johnson will surely have taken note that some of his peers have shown that winning in your 40s is still very much a thing. As is making the top 30 at Augusta aged 63. Nice one Bernhard Langer."

Back Zac Johnson @ 55/1

RSM Classic - Outsiders to back

The RSM Classic has been a great event for outsiders so Steve Rawlings makes the case for three to get in-the-mix at long-odds this year.

He says: "Clark has ranked inside the top-10 for Putting Average on all but one of the occasions he's made the cut since the restart and he looks perfectly primed to get off the mark."

Back Wyndham Clark @ 200.00

RSM Classic - Course info and form stats

There's a larger than normal European representation at this week's RSM Classic and Andy Swales has the key form stats and course info.

He says: "Tommy Fleetwood 32.031/1 might fancy his chances of claiming what would be a first success in the United States. The world number 16 Englishman feels comfortable playing in coastal conditions, and performed pretty well over the opening three days at Augusta."

Joburg Open - The Punter's preview

The European Tour returns to South Africa for the first event of a three-week winter swing and our man fancies a Japanese star to contend once more.

Steve says: Kawamura traded at odds-on last time out at the Cyprus Showdown, where he did nothing wrong in-contention, and that fine effort wasn't a one-off.

Masahiro Kawamura @ 50.049/1

Joburg Open - First-round leader tips

Who's got what it takes to make a fast start at Randpark on Thursday? Dave Tindall has a few ideas and recommends three players to back.

He says: "In his last five starts he's been the first-round leader at the Irish Open (65) and second after day one of the Italian Open (64)."

Back Dean Burmester each-way @ 45/1

Joburg Open - Each-way tips

Matt Cooper has three each-way selections from Randpark GC with the Betfair Sportsbook paying seven places.

He says: "It's something of a curiosity that, although the 47-year-old has always been tagged a big-hitter, he tends to thrive when within the trees"

Back Scott Hend each-way @ 80/1

Joburg Open - Course info and form stats

Andy fills us in on Randpark's Firethorn Course - a parkland layout in the north-west suburbs of Johannesburg - and discusses the players' form.

He says: "Among home-based golfers taking part is Daniel van Tonder 27.026/1 who has won four times on the Sunshine Tour during the past two-and-a-half months."
