Abu Dhabi Golf Championship

More disappointment in Johannesburg the weekend when Alejandro Canizares slipped back on Sunday when looking poised for a good finish. No doubt he will pop up again either this week or next such as the way my luck has been going ! (O missed cut in East London but returned top 10 in Joburg).
This week sees the first serious lineup of 2010 but disappointingly no Padraig Harrington.Naturally,Lee Westwood & Rory McIlroy head the betting, but at 12/1 value is sought this early in the season.Charl Schwartzel can be got at 25/1, not a bad price for a player on a strong roll of form, but I do feel tempted to once again take a punt on Thomas Aiken @ 125/1. Its a toss up between Alexander Noren @ 45s and Oliver Wilson @ 66s. Recent back injury may be reason for the odds on Wilson but I think those odds warrant a punt so he is taken over one of my "ones to follow"

Bank Balance after Joburg Open +67.43 (profit +57.43)

Abu Dhabi Selections:

1 unit e/w O.Wilson @ 66/1
1 unit e/w T.Aiken @ 125/1
