Just two for me this week.

Anirban Lahiri has gone well here before, and freshened up after his great showing in the PGA, I'm having a dabble at 25-1, even though it was a bit shorter than I hoped for.

But may main bet is Lucas Bjerregaard at 50-1. Got some very good form here and seems to be a much improved player this season.

Good luck one and all.

Plays 6699yards

Hole 12 will be a good watch, it has a double fairway and intersting to see how brave the players are.

Will probably suit long drivers as fairways are pretty forgiving compared to many on the tour (Dustin Johnson).
Last two years have resulted in a playoff. THANKS TO RALFIE1982@O.L.B.G.

lay of Rose for me@7.6
Report toberaheena October 22, 2015 8:26 PM BST
@sonofshinner...hope you are not in too much trouble with that lay of Justin Rose. I kept laying him last week and he just would not go away until the very last 8 holes or so. So, what I'm saying is, maybe , do not panic. A long, long way to go.

Myself, after bothering to get out of bed at 5 am this morning to check on a bet on Fowler in the US. , I had traded a free €200 green on him. All was ok at -2 until he found water and is paddling since. No chance now. My picks in the PGA event are nearly all out of it all ready so last week was only beginners luck. This Fitzpatrick kid may be a serious player for the future. Stays the distance as well. Rose price below 4.00 at this stage is paramount to a ludicrous offer and value to lay . Why.Mathematics and euros. Surely will trade higher over the next 3 days. Different diet and culture has more of an effect on a Westerner than most comprehend.

@Ashleigh...... I am almost sure Sky coverage begins at 3.00 am. Best of luck to those needing a non Rose winner. Grin and bare it looks the only option before play really settles into the final round. One option I very rarely use is to punt my way out of trouble, which means having a mighty whack of a win bet on my current loser to make him a neutral on the book. Takes bottle and not for the faint hearted. Rose is getting some rakers in the early rounds, and that is why he is up there. If he starts to putt like his normal self, I give young Fitzy a little chance. On the U.S. , for a decent top 10 finish I think Cameron Tringale may be an option but I am holding fire on my current book. No bet here so far.

ROLL ON 2016...

UBS Hong Kong Open 2016




THE FINAL EVENT of this calendar year but only the third of a new 2017 EURO TOUR season takes place in FANLING (HKGC). Back in 2015, the tournament was held in October and was the final opportunity for those around the top 110 on the RtoD to retain their playing privileges for the following season.
This new schedule change means there ought to be a more relaxed atmosphere in 2016 BUT players will still see it as a chance to BANK SOME CASH in the early season.....or lose it all on Highland Reel 1/1 and Maurice 13/8 in the HK Vase and HK Cup respectively at Sha Tin on Sunday afternoon.

One of the few Pro Golf events to have remained at the same venue for such a long period of time - The Masters and Crans-sur-Sierre and the European Masters can only  compare. The 58th staging (since '59) of the UBS Hong Kong Open at Fanling and the 16th time it’s been part of the European Tour schedule. A co-sanctioned event by the Asian Tour and The Hong Kong Golf association, Hong Kong PGA and the Chinese PGA receive exemptions for this tournament highlighting its place of pride in the region.

One of the shortest on Tour at 6,710 yards par 70, a very traditional old-school track, a tight tree-lined course but ‘a great test of golf’ with Bermuda greens and ‘not easy’ as the course has four dogleg left and two dogleg right holes. Course management on this narrow layout demands accuracy and a strategic approach where hitting greens and scrambling are the key stats as 36-year-old Rose proved last year by finishing 1st in both, with a 17 under 65-66-64-68. The ‘amazing’ 410yds 18th is a great finishing hole with water, trees, heavy bunkering plus a famously elusive green with par four an excellent score - one of the two hardest holes on the course last time out, plus the 9th - while the par five 13th, one of the two par fives, was ranked the easiest hole last year.


Some famous names are on the trophy and they include major winners Peter Thomson, Greg Norman, Ian Woosnam, Bernhard Langer, Tom Watson, Jose Maria Olazabal, Padraig Harrington, Rory McIlroy and, most recently, last year’s champ Justin Rose. Also notable second place finishers were K.J Choi (twice), Thongchai Jaidee, Prom Meesawat, Philippino Angelo Que, Italians Matteo Manassero and Francesco Molinari, Ireland’s Harrington and RORY (twice). 3-time MAJOR Winner 53yo Monty won it too btw - one of the greatest Ryder Cup players of all time, a member of eight European Teams, never lost in a singles match and was 2010 Captain (with Thomas Bjørn as his vice-captain), now we have that ‘Danish Ham’ to listen to until 2018.


While Dustbin Johnson also headlined in 2015 (69,72 to MC by one) - A star-studded 2016 cast (Four of the T50 OWGR in this 126 player field - 144 played in 2015) include defending champion and Rio Olympics Gold Medallist Justin Rose #15 is ‘back’ (as in recurring ‘back’ problems so may be trouble ahead - due to touch down in HK today) alongside reigning Masters Champ Danny ‘back too’ Willett #12 (for the first time since 2011) and fully fit and healthy Ryder Cup stars 15/2 Patrick Reed #8 and 16/1 shot Rafa Cabrera Bello #33. Former Hong Kong champions Scott Hend #60, Ian James Poulter #171 and Miguel Ángel Jiménez #231, victorious four times might also feature along with other notables 47yo Thongchai Jaidee #52, Kiradech Aphibarnrat #80, and  S.S.P. Chawrasia #215 of India and Chinese greats Liang Wen-chong, Zhang Lian-wei and 19yo rising star, Dou Ze-cheng 300/1 in Spoils.


God help those writing out the docket for Thailand’s Jazz Janewattananond, Panuphol Pittayarat, Natipong Srithong, Thanyakon Khrongpha, Pavit Tangkamolprasert, Thitiphun Chuayprakong, Chinnarat Phadungsil, Pariya Junhasavasdikul and China’s Yannick Nathan Artigolle.

Rafa Cabrera Bello looks a stand out bet to me this week. Greens in regulation the biggest stat here and that's his forte. Reed looked out of form last weekend, and he and Rose are very short imo.

Couple of outsiders I like are David Lipsky ew at 50/1 and Marcus Fraser at 80/1. The latter loves this tournament, has some excellent form here and played well enough in Dubai and South Africa recently. Doesnt look a particularly deep field here.

Good luck.

Report Catch Me ifyoucan December 8, 2016 11:57 AM GMT
A DAY ONE STAT...tks Steve-the-punter.

AFTER Round One in 2015 Rose sat tied for third and just one swing off the lead and he led all the way after that with runner-up Bjerregaard hot on his heels all the way to the line - and that is fairly typical of how this event tends to pan out.

Jimenez (in 2013) is the only HK Open winner this century to shoot an opening round in the 70s (shot even par 70), and he was the first to trail by more than five strokes after day one. The vast majority of winners here are up with the pace all the way - the last two winners and six of the seven winners before Jimenez three years ago - were within three strokes of the lead and inside the top-five after round one. The only exception was Ian Poulter but he was in front by halfway – well he did shoot a second round 60! This isn't a catch-up course and you really do need a good start.

THEREFORE: 1. trail by more than five strokes 2. within three strokes of the lead 3. inside the top-five.

RAFA leads at -6, so maybe include anyone even par or better BUT favour those within 3 strokes (-3 or better – i.e. T21 players) and even better, already have your money on those inside T5 (T12 players at -4 or better). There’s 67 players at even par or better with REED & ROSE already looking for a ‘happy ending’ back at The Peninsula – any recommendations??? Cabrera Bello has been one of the stand-out performers of 2016, not missing a single cut and finishing eighth on the Race-to-Dubai Rankings. Rafa was 15th here in 2011, having missed the cut the previous year.

Sébastien Gros at -5 is making his debut here after two MC in his last two events – in SA last week having been 4th in 2015 and even missed cut in Portugal ffs – Ok he spent 2014 on the Asian Tour before coming through the first two stages of the European Tour Qualifying School, only to miss out on graduation by a single shot at the Final Stage after bogeying each of the last three holes, well he is French after all. Lives in Geneva and MC in Wentworth & down the street in Crans-sur-Sierre, similar tests of accuracy - best of luck to you, but has to be a no no. Add Benjamin Hebert & Jordan L Smith to this debutant sauce.
Will be interesting to watch if Ireland’s PAUL DUNNE, NATHAN KIMSEY & Mr Fleetwood would buck my debut theory. "It definitely takes a certain type of player" to win here and so if one looks deep enough...

30yo Jbe’ Kruger, is among 10 players at -4, likes it round here with finishes of 41, 21st, 24, 46 & 38th since 2010. One 65 is his low round here while two 66’s in 2014 left him T3 going into the Sunday – but then shoots 74. MC at the Omega European Masters also doesn't bode well?

IF still having a bet then look no further than LIPSKY 20’s 4plcs (already advised 45’s) and/or maybe JAIDEE 14’s in Lads (but v poor value). If Poulter’s worst round is -2 then at 25/1 he’s in the mix on Sunday and will not make the races at Sha Tin.

Having a big priced tickle on Grant Forrest who finished off the Challenge season strongly. World ranking of 222 is relatively strong for this standard of field.

Rumours & Whispers....that next week's HKO may be cancelled because of the HK protests.....No trip to Jumbos in Aberdeen or Nathan rd !
Fanling GC is 30 miles north - far enough away from the city centre - so it might still go ahead imho.

Very sad what's going on in that city. Spent a bit of time there, love the place. Hopefully this works itself out soon and everything returns to normal, including the golf next year.

Pelley postponed the 61st edition in light of the "on-going social unrest" - "will be rescheduled for next year" - "safety of all involved, unfortunately"..."hopefully returning early next year.”..... HOLY maCAU ! Devil

Wade Ormsby and Tomoharu Otsuki shared the early lead at 5-under 65.
Ormsby, who won the event in 2017, carded six birdies and one bogey while Otsuki didn’t drop a shot. The Japanese player had three birdies in the opening five holes and added two more on 12th and 13th holes. “A little bit windy in the afternoon but I’m happy with how I held up,” Ormsby said. “I like a lot of these shots around here ... that’s why I’ve chosen to start my season here.”

Shane goes to six-under-par for the day with an eagle on the par-five 13th hole.
He's now the closest pursuer on -13, but still 4 shots behind Ormsby.Devil
