2016 Volvo China Open Favourite Watch

Joost Luiten 10/1

Yeshhh I'm Yoosht!

A missed cut on an ultra tight track in India is the only blot on Joost Luiten's copybook this season. Apart from that he hasn't been outside the top 15 in six other appearances this season.  His fear of greenside chipping didn't seem to hold him back either in Valderrama where he finished solo second and to then fly to China and again finish T2 last Sunday was remarkable.  He's on fire.

Doc's Top 5 Picks at The 2016 Volvo China Open

Alex Levy 16/1

Alex Levy. Daft as a brush the poor fellow.

Seems to like golf in China.  Winner on his debut in 2014 and T3 in 2015.  The sometimes doo-lally Frenchman is back to his best this season; solo second when Louis won in Perth, T14 at the Open de Espana and solo fourth at Shenzhen last week.  If that putter stays hot, Alex knows how to win.

Tommy Fleetwood 25/1

Tommy Fleetwood. Plays well when Game of Thrones is on.

Another player trending in the right direction is Tommy Fleetwood.  Four top-20 finishes from his last five starts including T19's in the last two weeks.  Two top-10's to mix with two missed cuts in China but worth an each way look on form.

Rikard Karlberg 66/1

Rikard Karlberg. Won the Eurovision in 1988.

Has the game to mix it with the best when in form.  Knows these Chinese courses well after playing the Asian Tour in 2010.  Trending upwards in form from T40 in Malaysia, to T25 in Thailand and T8 in Shenzhen last week.  Won the Italian Open in 2015; if the door is open Rikard knows how to take his chance.

Julien Quesne 35/1

Julien Quesne. Your dog bit me!

While all eyes will be on Alex Levy this week Julien Quesne can privately fancy his own chances.  He has three top 20's from four starts at the China Open including a T8 last season, which when you consider they keep changing the venue, is impressive stuff.  Three top-10's already this season in Malaysia, Perth and India and topped the putting stats last week in Shenzhen on his way to a T13 finish.

Richie Ramsay 40/1

Richie Ramsay. Sporren got in the way a bit last Sunday.

I'm going to stick with Richie for another week even though a disappointing final round of 77 saw him slip to T24 in last Sunday's final round.  I'm looking at a solid top 10 clip in greens in regulation and a solo seventh in the corresponding fixture last season.  Richie to bounce back!
