Golf Betting Tips – Qatar Masters
This week’s free golf betting tips for the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha Golf Club. After the glitz and glamour of last week at Abu Dhabi, where many of the big names came to the Gulf, it’s a rather subdued feeling to the second leg of the gulf swing. A lot of the bigger names are not playing but it still could be another enthralling week.

The course measures 7,400 yards and its a fair test with average sized fairways and medium rough, whilst the greens are probably the toughest test as they are undulating and sloping. There’s also plenty of water in attendance this week and features prominently on the last par 5 18th. There is also natural rock in attendance on the back nine which frames the course nicely, but shouldn’t really come in to play for players of this quality. The main defence of the course is the North West Shamal winds which can really make this a test, but at the moment the forecast is for favourable warm conditions with limited amount of wind.
We looked nicely on track to land one of our golf tips last week, with An Byeong-Hun contending for the win, but then dunked two shots into the lake late on. Such is the high and lows of golf betting. Hopefully we can get on the winning run again and hope we get that bit of luck we all need.

Thorbjorn Oleson 25/1 EW 6 places Paddy Power
We put up Thorbjorn Oleson as the top golf tip last week and I’m more than willing to give the Dane another go after a slightly disappointing performance in Abu Dhabi. He undoubtedly has the quality to land this event and has a strong liking for the course with a tied second last year and a tied third in 2014. He’s simply is a hard man to catch right but if he is to prosper, this course suits him ideally.
Thomas Aiken 40/1 EW 7 places Coral
Thomas Aiken is a man in form at the moment. He has the look of player who is in control of his game and merits selection as one of this week’s tips. I really like how consistent his golf is at the moment and I would be surprised if he had any bad rounds this week. He has past form at this course with a fifth placed showing in 2014 and a tied sixth in 2011. He appears to have added a bit more steel to his game now and I’m hopeful of a decent showing.
Bradley Dredge Top 20 Finish 11/4 Betfair
I’ve looked to the top twenty market for the final golf betting tip where I think Welshman Bradley Dredge will go very well. He had an eye catching top twenty last week, but if anything this course suits him even more. He’s was joint fourth in this event last year and also has another top twenty to his name in 2011. That may not sound the best course form but it has to remembered that he had a few years in the wilderness before 2016, so the stats probably don’t do him full justice. At one point he was even playing in a satellite event for 10 grand near Newcastle, so its really good to see him continue his comeback.
Other notables to watch will be last week’s winner Tommy Fleetwood, who we have put up a few times as a likely winner (shame we were not on) and it wouldn’t be the biggest surprise if he goes close again. Alex Noren is the favourite this week and he was one of the most improved players of last year. He will almost certainly win a tournament this year and once that putting stroke gets going I’m sure it will come sooner rather than later.
