Volvo China Open Tips, Preview and Odds

Once again we came so close last week with our golf tips at the Shenzhen International, with this time Tommy Fleetwood losing a play-off after a storming round of 63. Still we did pick up place money again, but it is the win we are striving for and maybe we can get it with our  Volvo China Open tips this week. Here is the preview with our best predictions for who may come out on top.

We stay in the Far East for our golf tips this week, and it is the turn of the China Open to take centre stage. The tournament will be played in Beijing at the Topwin Golf and Country Club, where it was first held in 1995. This will be the seventh occasion the tournament has been held there and you can expect to see plenty of low scoring at the course so we should be in for an exciting week. Hopefully, the weather doesn’t affect play too much and we can have four solid days of play, without any stoppages.

Li Haotaong returns as the defending champion and he will be trying to do what no one else has been able to do before and defend his title. The Chinese youngster has a great affection with this tournament, playing in it for the first time when he was just 15 in 2010.

He made the cut at the event for the first time in 2014 and came close in 2015 when he started the final day tied for the lead but ultimately finished in sixth place. When he won the event last year he became the youngest player to win it at just 22. He lives and breathes this event and you certainly wouldn’t like to bet against him going close this week, if just for the sake of sentiment rather than because you actually fancy him to win it, He will be cheered on by many of the locals and is a real favourite in his hometown, if he is in contention on the final day then expect the crowds to be high around the course.

A fifth place finish at the Maybank Championship in February would give Haotong hope’s of claiming the title, but since then he has struggled for form. Most recently he came 100th and missed the cut at the Shenzhen International last week and before that he came 95th and missed the cut at the Tshwane Open.

Ross Fisher is the player I am backing as our top tip for the China Open this week and he comes into this tournament on the back of some very good golf this year. His last three tournaments on the European Tour have resulted in two thirds and a fifth, very respectable and certainly showing that he is knocking on the door of victory. Sandwiched in between those events, Fisher earned a place at the Masters where he came a very respectable 41st over at Augusta. He is in great form and I am sure he will win a tournament very soon, hopefully, that win could come this weekend, and it would be thoroughly deserved.

The field for this week’s event is headed by Bernd Wiesberger, who won the Shenzhen International last week. We would not put anyone off backing Wiesberger this week as his form has been increidble. Other Europeans playing include Thomas Bjorn and Thorjorn Olsen. The field looks competitive, but some big names are missing this week and Fisher looks to have a great shout of finally landing that elusive tour win he has come so close to picking up this year.

Who else do we think will go well this week, well Dean Burmester appeals at the odds of 40/1. He was right up there contending last week until a disastrous last round plummeted him down the field. Dean has already won this year at the Tshwane Open back in March only three starts ago. He should go very well as he tends to play his best golf around this time of the year.

Our last tip goes to the Frenchman Alexander Levy who has found same consistent form of late. His last three tournaments have resulted in a 4th, T34 and a T8th finishes. He is near the top of the betting markets for good reason and the 25/1 on offer does float our boat.
