2015 UBS Hong Kong Open Betting Preview And Tips
Hong Kong GC
Fanling, Hong Kong 22 Oct 2015 - 25 Oct 2015

Favourites Discussion

Justin Rose and Dustin Johnson headline the field at the Hong Kong Open and it’s hard to argue with the 11/2 odds of Rose after his T2 in the Tour Championship.  There is plenty of value in the “win” market though this week. If you fancy last year’s winner Scott Hend, note he also won the Venetian Macau Open last week and thus brings form to his defense here at 35/1.

Doc’s Top Five Players To Watch At The Hong Kong Open

Anirban Lahiri  25/1

Lahiri was three shots behind winner Hend at the Macau Open last week and has been one of my players of the season.  Twice a winner in Malaysia and India and perhaps as impressive finished T5 at the PGA Championship.  Has the game and the confidence to win this week and looks a great each way bet at 25/1.

Lucas Bjeregaard 50/1

Won’t be on many people’s radar this week but came back from missed cuts in Scotland and England with a tidy T9 in Portugal last week.  That was more like the form that brought the big Dane a T5 at the European Open and T3 in Italy.  Third visit to Hong Kong for Lucas and after a T24 in 2013 improved to a T5 last year.  Could pay out again each way this year.

Thongchai Jaidee 22/1

In the field this week is European Open winner Thongchai Jaidee who returns for to Hong Kong for the first time in a few years (if I’m not mistaken) but has three top-15 finishes at Fanling in his locker.  He can be got at 22/1 and seems a decent each way look for those odds.  There’s a reason he’s playing this week!

Marcus Fraser 28/1

Very impressed with Marcus’s T5 at the successfully staged British Masters a couple of weeks ago and this Hong Kong venue suits his game.  He has proved that with four top-11 finishes here since 2010 including a solo third in 2012 and T5 last year.  Now back in form, he can contend.

Mikko Korhonen 50/1

It’s a case of pick your Mikko this week again in Hong Kong and I’m going with Korhonen.  A T9 on the Victoria Course brings his tally of consecutive top-25 finishes to four.  Also in those four events Mikko is a cumulative 10 under for the par 3’s and 32 under for the par 5’s, and that says everything to me in terms of all round game. T20 in 2014, should do better this time around.
