The Race to Dubai may be over for 2018–congratulations to Francisco Molinari—but the golf goes on.
This week sees the Hong Kong Open, with the defending champion being the Australian Wade Ormsby.
The course at the Hong Kong Golf Club is not particularly long, with accuracy a more relevant attribute than length off the tee.
The top of the betting list largely comprises of players that were in the heat of battle last weekend in the DP World Tour Championship. The first six players are all short in price, and we’ll give them a miss.
Instead we’re going to take a punt on American Paul Peterson. He finished tied second in this event last year and has already shown his liking for golf in Asia when winning in Myanmar earlier this year.
Our second selection is a Swedish golfer we’ve been keeping an eye on for some time. Marcus Kinhult represented Europe in the Junior Ryder Cup in 2014, and would have been highly placed in this event last year if it wasn’t for a fourth round 73.
Peterson 0.5 each way at 80/1, 1/4 the odds for the first five places, bet365
Kinhult 0.5 each way at 50/1, 1/5 the odds for the first six places, SkyBet
