Venue

Topwin Golf & CC, Beijing, China PR • Purse: RMB20,000,000

A strong international field boasting of many Masters’ regulars will be vying for attention along with one of the most impressive wonders of the world in China. The Great Wall of China will not be in the foreground, for once, as Golf regulars will be heading to the 22nd edition of the Volvo China Open at Topwin Golf and Country Club from April 28.

The tournament, which made its debut in 1995, is organized by the China Golf Association and has been co-sanctioned by the European Tour since 2003. The tournament will be Volvo’s 85th tournament on the European Tour.

This year’s edition will see action on the Topwin Golf and Country Club designed by Ian Woosman, at Beijing in the birthplace of the tournament. The Championship Course, measuring 7, 296 yards and a par-score of 72, is situated on the northern outskirts of the capital city in the hills of Huairou which form the base of the Great Wall of China.

What makes the course unique is the stunning parkland layout that runs through rural countryside amongst fruit and pine trees. Apart from granting an abundant view of one of the nature’s wonders, the course offers a mix of chestnut orchards and a strong natural wildlife.

The player roster for this year’s edition reveals a truly testing field with top golfers making the grid. The list is diverse too, with no fewer than 28 countries being represented this year.

An interesting byline for the event will be the focus on the Ryder Cup and the Olympics – with many golfers keeping a watch on qualifying for these two prestigious events. There are 13 of the top 100 golfers in the world making the roster while there are ten former champions of the tournament participating. The total prize fund is RMB 20 million.

Defending champion Wu Ashun, who incidentally is the highest-ranked Chinese golfer, will spearhead the array of local talent. There is a strong hope that the champion’s trophy will be retained in China, surpassing the field of strong international presence. After his stupendous win last year, Wu became the first Chinese champion since 2004. His victory had a positive impact on the local golf scene and the win continues to be a driving force for the development of golf in China.

Competing with Wu will be top golfers like Bernd Wiesberger, Victor Dubuisson and Kiradech Aphibarnrat. Also making the grade from the qualifiers will be the talented trio of Wolmer Murillo (Venezuela), Lee Chieh-po (Taiwan) and Kim Tae-Woo (South Korea). With the venue in the sprawling capital city, there will be no shortage of spectators to experience this wonderful tournament.

Representing your nation at the Olympics is an interesting backdrop of the Volvo China Open and should drive most of the golfers, not least the defending Champion Wu. If he is successfully able to defend his title, he will not just become the first player to do so but also signify a historic moment for China.

Golf Tips For The Volvo China Open

What a week our man Seve had again on both sides of the Atlantic. Charley Hoffman wins for the fourth time on The PGA Tour and gave us a fantastic 40/1 winner. At the same time finishing early Monday morning our main tip Joost Luiten just failed for the second week running when finishing second again. We will not desert him this week as the field is not as strong and although the odds are shorter we still take Joost Luiten to win the Volvo China Open.

Alexander Levy has been in decent form of late with two top fives in his last four events. Including a T4 at last weeks tournament Shenzhen International. He obviously loves this part of the world and finished a T3 last year at this tournament and is a safe bet to give you a run for your money at odds of around 18/1

Four our last tip we for for the Englishman Tyrrell Hatton who is another who plays well in China. He had rounds of 68 and 67 at the weekend last week to finish in 12th place. Last year at the Volvo China Open he finished T8. He is generally available at odds of 45/1 and should be vying for a place at least.

So a quick recap with our 3 tips to follow this week at The Volvo China Open.
Joost Luiten 9/1 – 3pts each way
Alexander Levy 18/1 – 1pt each way
Tyrrell Hatton 45/1 – 1pt each way
