The European Tour is moving from Abu Dhabi to Dubai, and below we have provided a full preview of the Dubai Desert Classic which will start on Thursday. The tournament was firstly established in 1989, and was the first one to take place on the Arabian Peninsula. This is the 31st edition as the event didn’t take place in 1991.

It takes place on the Majlis course which is designed by Karl Litten and was opened in 1988. It has hosted the tournament every year apart from the 1999 and 2000 editions. There are generous fairways, and the rough isn’t brutal. The greens are of average side, and the course is laid to Bermuda grass with water that is present on ten holes.

2020 Dubai Desert Classic Betting

2020 Dubai Desert Classic Betting Tips | Thursday to Sunday, 23rd-26th, January 2020

What Does it Take to Win the Dubai Desert Classic?

Last year’s winner was Bryson DeChambeau who was ranked 26th for Driving Distance. The 2018 winner was Li Haotong and was only ranking 18th but he was ranked number one for Par 5 Scoring. Length off the tee is a key advantage here.

Hitting it long off the tee is very important, but you don’t have to hit it especially straight. Garcia was ranked fourth for Driving Accuracy three years ago and Henrik Stenson, who was the runner-up, ranked first but those were exceptions.

DeChambeau was also ranking third for Greens In regulation and overall 10 of the last 14 winners have ranked inside the top-five on this metric.

Form at Portugal Masters can be indicative

Rory McIlroy won here in 2015 and only played the Portugal Masters once, finishing 30th in 2009. DeChambeau, who won here last here, never teed it up there but there are plenty of evidence that those two tournaments are well linked together. 

Sergio Garcia won this tournament two years ago and finished seventh in the Portugal Masters. Danny Willett, who won in 2016, finished inside the top-seven in Portugal. Three men to win this event before 2015 all have a top-three at the Portugal Masters. 

The Qatar Masters also give pretty good indications too. The likes of Ernie Els, Henrik Stenson, Thomas Bjorn, Quiros and Sergio have all landed both events. Last year’s Qatar Masters winner, Justin Harding, was 8th here a year ago on his debut in this tournament. So, clearly, there is also a link between those two tournaments.

Links players do also well here. Garcia came very close to win an Open a couple of times and six of the last 13 players have won an Open Championship. 

Let’s not forget that this course is also wind-exposed and this does explain why links exponents perform so well here. Form in the desert is also important as this event correlates well with last week’s tournament in Abu Dhabi. 

Who are the Market Leaders?

Tommy Fleetwood will be back to the Emirates for the ninth time in a row. He has had a mixed bag of results over the year, but he has superb links and can play very well in the desert. He is in fantastic form at the moment as he managed to follow up his Nedbank win with two 2nd place finishes in the desert in the last couple of months. Surely might be the protagonist but looks too short for our taste. 

Matthew Firtzpatrick had to settle for second place in Abu Dhabi on Sunday and this is the fifth time in a row that this is happening. We believe he has what it takes to win another title soon, yet the fact that he is getting used to get titles slipping away it is a concern especially at this short price. 

Louis Oosthuizen is coming here in shining form but again he has had mixed bag of results here. He has finished in seventh place here in 2009, but has mixed the cut on four of the nine times he played. This also includes the last two visits in 2016 and 2018. Surely there is more value in the betting market than him. 

Henrik Stenson won the title here 13 years ago. He was 23rd in the Singapore Open last week but surely cannot be ruled out after the impressive victory he got at the Hero World Challenge before Christmas. 

Sergio Garcia won here in 2017 and was 3rd a year ago, so he loves to play at this venue. He was in contention in Abu Dhabi last week, until he had a disappointing round on Sunday and saw the title slipping away. Garcia turned 40 a couple of weeks ago and will be keen to celebrate with a win, but he is trialling different clubs at the moment, and that is a concern. 

Bernd Wiesberger

Even if Bernd Wiesberger was disappointing on Sunday when he went down from second to eight, he is normally a reliable player and will be looking to win his fourth title in the last eight months. He has a very good course form even if he missed the cut last year when he was going through a period of bad form. He was ninth in 2014 and fourth 2015. At 25/1 the price is too good to be ignored. 

Our Verdict: Bernd Wiesberger To Win The Dubai Desert Classic

Andy Sullivan went close to content a couple of times but eventually had to settle for 21st place. He is in form and likes playing in the desert so could well be a great each-way bet this week. He has form at the right courses, including this one (12-MC-4-2-MC-6-MC) and has surely been playing good golf for some time now. At 60/1 is a perfect each-way opportunity.
