Free golf betting tips for the Shenzhen International. The much traveled European Tour heads to China this week for the Shenzhen International, which returns again to the Genzon Golf Club. The Neil Haworth designed layout has played host to this event for the last two years, but also hosted the 2014 Volvo China Open won by Alexander Levy.
The Par 72 7,145yd track is a predominantly tree lined layout with quite generous fairways, which meanders around the Dragon Lake, bringing water in play on many of the holes. The three previous winners around here range from the swashbuckling style of play of Alexander Levy and Kiradech Aphibarnrat, to the steadier Soomin Lee in last years renewal, so no particular strong trend angle this week. The weather forecast is quite mixed for the tournament, with rain forecast and only light breezes expected.Get 1/5 odds 7 places on Coral
Shenzhen International golf betting tips
From a golf betting perspective there will be plenty of attention paid to the headliner Bubba Watson, who has such a good record in this part of the world. Despite a Tied 8th here last year, it is hard to fancy the temperamental American as he arrives here badly out of form, particularly with the flatstick. His current putting woes are painful to watch, but at least we have had the novelty value of him missing short putts this season with his new multi-coloured golf balls! It will be interesting to see what colour golf ball Bubba produces for his Korean golf ball sponsor Volvik this week?
Ross Fisher 16/ E/W (1/5 the odds-7 places) Coral
The main betting tip this week is the back to form Ross Fisher. The chirpy Englishman had a really slow start to the season, probably in part to having to get used to new clubs after the well published demise of the Nike range of golf equipment. Thankfully Fisher has really found his form in the two recent WGC events, with a Tied 3rd in Mexico followed by a Tied 5th in the WGC Match Play in Austin. The catalyst for this sudden improvement seems to have been the new Taylor Made putter he put in his bag a few days before the event in Mexico, as he putted brilliantly during the event.
He has course form having finished Tied 15th and Tied 16th in the last two years and he generally plays well on his forays to China. Further confidence can be gained by the fact he has played really well recently at Sheshan International golf event (Tied 3rd in 2015 and Tied 6th in 2016) on another Neil Haworth designed layout, so if the putter behaves again this week, expect a bold show from this great ball striker.Back Ross Fisher EW 7 places on Coral
Peter Uihlein 20/1 E/W (1/5 the odds-7 places)-Coral
The second golf tip this week is the big hitting American Peter Uihlein who has put last years injury woes behind him with some strong performances this season. The 27 year old has already posted a Tied 5th in Dubai and a 4th place finish in the Tshwane Open this year, and has more recently played well on the PGA Tour with a Tied 5th in Puerto Rico, and a Tied 23rd in the Shell Houston Open.
He is another who plays well in China, and has strong previous course form having finished Tied 4th here in 2015. His main weakness is his inconsistency from the tee, so it’s no great surprise that this type of track with its generous fairways should really suit his gung-ho style of play(3rd in Driving Distance in 2015). He looks the each-way value in an open looking betting heat.Back Peter Uihlein EW 7 places on Coral
