Branden Grace continued the tremendous run of the Bettingzone's golf tipping team with a 50/1 victory at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Branden Grace: 50/1 winner of the Dunhill Links

The South African was David John's headline tip for the Pro-Am event over three courses in Scotland and he made all the running after his opening 60 on Thursday to win by two shots.

Grace had highlighted his claims the previous week with a victory at his home course of Fancourt and John was strong enough on his chances to follow-up with a two-point each-way recommendation.

He said: "Clearly his preparation for the test at Kingsbarns, Carnoustie and St Andrews could not have gone any better while he will have no fear in terms of stringing consecutive titles together after achieving that feat in January at the Joburg Open and then Volvo Champions.

"Grace is now up inside the top 50 in the world and historically this event has gone the way of a proven performer with a win or two under his belt - Grace's profile looks ideal."

He is clearly showing a tremendous liking for links golf and he can be backed at 125/1 for the 2013 Open Championship with Sky Bet.

France's Victor Dubuisson also crept into a share of the places at 100/1 to swell the coffers a little more and return a profit of over 125 points on the preview.

This win comes hot on the heels of some successful tipping at the Ryder Cup from Ben Coley and Dave Tindall while the former also nailed over 100 points in his Omega European Masters preview last month.

Derek Bilton was another Zone tipster in top form as he called the Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championship absolutely spot-on with 16/1 winner Kei Nishikori while rugby union expert Reece Killworth made it five straight winning previews this weekend in the Aviva Premiership.
