There's a strong field once again in Saudi Arabia for the tournament's third playing. Who are we backing?

Saudi International Golf Betting Tips 2021

The European Tour heads to Saudi Arabia and Royal Greens Golf Club this week for the third Saudi International.

The two previous winners - Graeme McDowell and Dustin Johnson (opens in new tab) - are both returning to compete in an excellent field of players not just from the European Tour but also several big name PGA Tour competitors have made the trip to the Middle East too.

DJ of course leads the way as world number one and he is closely followed by other Americans like Bryson DeChambeau (opens in new tab), Patrick Reed (opens in new tab), Tony Finau and Phil Mickelson.

Other big names in the field are Tommy Fleetwood (opens in new tab), Viktor Hovland, Justin Rose, Tyrrell Hatton and Sergio Garcia.

Who will win this week though? Check out our tips...

Also if you love fantasy sports and want to play a golf version, then why not try the games on Zweeler.

On the Zweeler website you can pick players and win money each week or you can play a season-long game in which you have a roster of 22 players competing for you! It is great fun and there is great value to be had on some very good players right now! At the end of the season you can win a big cash prize.

The season actually started last week at the Dubai Desert Classic and Farmers Insurance Open but you can easily still catch up if you sign up here (opens in new tab).

Paul Casey 4 points each way at 25/1 with Bet365 (opens in new tab)
It is crazy that we can get a player who won last week as high as 25/1 but that is exactly what has happened with Casey. He is clearly playing well as shown by his T8 at the American Express and win in Dubai, so we expect him to carry that on this week too.
(opens in new tab)
Robert MacIntyre 3 points each way at 30/1 with 888Sport (opens in new tab)
We also like MacIntyre this week because he has been playing consistently good golf for a while now. He had a solo 3rd place last week in Dubai and his last Missed Cut actually came in this event in 2020. To many that is a bad sign but we think he will make a mends this time around.
(opens in new tab)
Phil Mickelson 2 points each way at 90/1 with Bet365 (opens in new tab)
He may have sporadic form of late but Mickelson finished in a tie for 3rd at this event last year so he clearly likes the place. A common problem for him is missing with the driver and at Royal Greens you aren't massively punished for that, so at 90/1 we think he could be up there come Sunday.
(opens in new tab)
Ryan Fox 1 point each way at 125/1 with Betfred (opens in new tab)
Like Mickelson above, we have used the same logic for Fox. His driver can be wayward at times but at a place that doesn't really punish that, and with his stellar approach play, he could string together some good scores. He hasn't played badly here in the past either - he came T27 in 2020, and T6 in 2019.

About our deals

Sam Tremlett
Sam Tremlett

A golfer for most of his life, Sam started playing the game to prove he was the best player out of his father and two brothers.
He quickly became a golf equipment expert and has always been the one family and friends come to for buying advice, and spends a lot of his time putting golf gear, apparel and shoes to the test.  
He is a graduate of Swansea University where he studied History and American Studies, and he has been a part of the Golf Monthly team since February 2018. He also previously worked for World Soccer and Rugby World magazines.

A jack of all trades across print and digital formats, Sam now spends most of his time testing and looking after golf gear content for the website. He also oversees all Tour player content as well. 

Unfortunately, Sam is not a member of any club at the moment but regularly gets out on the golf course to keep up the facade of having a handicap of five. 


Sam is currently playing:
Driver: Titleist TS3
Fairway Wood: TaylorMade M5 (15 degrees), Nike Covert Tour 2.0 (19 degrees)
Irons (4-PW): Titleist AP2
Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM7 54˚, 58˚
Putter: Scotty Cameron Circa 62 #6
