Shenzhen International Golf Betting Tips & Preview 2016

by 18th April 2016

Golf tips for the Shenzhen International from April 21st – 24th. Read our betting preview on this tournament as well as our golfing tips & their betting odds.


Genzon GC, Shenzhen, China PR – Purse $2,800,000

The world’s most populous country will be treated to some exciting golfing action hot on the heels of its success in another sport – Formula One. Top golfers from across the world are heading to entertain China on the Genzon Golf Course in Shenzhen, Guangdong province. Action tees off from April 21 – 24 and the competitors will have one eye on the US $ 2.8 million on offer in the tournament. Jointly organized by the European Tour and the China Golf Association, this is an important event in the Chinese sports calendar, let alone golfing calendar.

The Genzon Golf Club measures 7, 145 yards and has a par-score of 72. The course is a visual treat being situated in between waters and hills against various dense forests. The picturesque landscape scenery that makes it visually compelling, owes its beauty to the presence of the Dragon Lake. The course was renovated by the renowned architect Neil Haworth in 2007. The challenge for the players lies in having a longer distance as well as ensuring stability from the kick-off.

Talking about the tough tasks on the course par-3 third hole presents a challenge with the two greenside bunkers on the left and a large bunker on the rear side. The presence of 74 bunkers is something that won’t leave any participant untested. Though this is a relatively young tournament on the European Tour calendar, there is expectation all round that the action would be befitting the status of any other major tournament.

The Shenzhen International was inaugurated in 2015 and this edition will be the European Tour’s first visit to China in 2016. Last year’s action saw Thai golfer Kiradech Aphibarnrat defeat his closest competitor from China Li Haotong to become the first winner of the tournament. There is an air of excitement for the 2016 edition, particularly with the announcement of the star line-up.

Two-time Masters Champion Bubba Watson will spearhead the roster which includes many local hopefuls. In a year where golf returns to Olympic Games after a long time – in fact, for the first time since 1904 – the tournament offers a chance for national team hopefuls to stake their claim. Li is expected to represent China but there is one more place up for grabs for competitors. Other confirmed participants include Venezuela’s Wolmer Murillo and the Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez. Watch out for the young 19-year-old Chinese sensation Dou Zecheng who will be spearheading the challenge of the local hopefuls.

There are other notable competitors including David Howell, Marc Warren, James Morrison and Pablo Larrazabal. Jimenez is another well recognized name in these parts having won the tour event in Hong Kong in late 2013. In fact, he remains the oldest European Tour event winner, having won the 2014 Open de Espana at the age of 50.

Will there be a local winner this time, considering the strong presence led by Li? Or will there be a winner from Europe? Either way, there is no doubt that the action will be engrossing.

Joost Luiten to win the Shenzhen International 14/1 – 2pts each way

Last years winner Kiradech Aphibarnrat takes to the field again to defend his title. He won in a play off from Hao-tong LI. He is in excellent form at present with his last two tournaments the Masters and WGC-Dell Match Play yielding a T15 and T18 respectively. He can go in again here in China and boost our winning bank once more.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat to win the Shenzhen International 14/1 – 2pts each way

For our last tip for the Shenzhen International we go to for a golfer who won for us earlier in the year at odds of 40/1. S S P Chowrasia is overpriced at 100/1 and for that reason alone he is worth backing. He won the Indian Hero Challenge after finishing runner up four times. He followed that up with a T56 at the Spanish Open but that was a good effort as it proved to be a problematic week with strong winds making the winning score +1 (our tip Andrew Johnston 100/1).
