Welcome to the brave new world of golf with the ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth. The format is an interesting one with the first 54 holes being a normal stroke play event with a cut after 36-holes. There will then be a further cut after 54 holes with the Top 24 players – those who tie for twenty-forth will go into a play off to make up the final twenty-four – going through to the match-play section.
The final twenty-four players will then play a six-hole match play until there is only one player left who will be declared the winner. It sounds interesting and the match-play element should bring a lot of drama to the final day.
Founded in 1928 and designed by Alex Russell, the Australian Open champion in 1924 – Lake Karrinyup Country Club sits in a wonderful bush setting providing a tranquil haven for an abundance of native flora and fauna and was constructed in the main – so legend has it, by sixty Italian labourers who withstood sandflies and leeches in the lake to fashion 18 holes out of some very inhospitable territory.
A book written by founder member Keith Barker tells of dragging old tree stumps together to form the base of the 12th green and even burying a dead workhorse in a bunker by the 10th green!
The lake is the focal point on the course and it can be viewed from seventeen of the eighteen holes. Over 75 species of birds can be found in the wetlands surrounding the large natural lake and kangaroos can be seen wandering amid the large eucalyptus trees and colourful shrubs. This undulating natural bush land track is situated just 15 minutes from the centre of Perth.
The signature hole is the 220-yard, par three 8th hole played over water to an elevated green, which is also protected by deep bunkers at the front. If you go long the tee shot will run away down the bank at the back of the green.
Mike Clayton was commissioned to upgrade the course in 2007. He lengthened the 3rd, 11th, 13th and 14th holes and shortened the 12th and 18th, rebuilding every green and bunker along the way.

My tips to win:
It maybe a new format this week but Louis Oosthuizen 12/1 – with BetFred – is still the defending champion of this event in its original stroke play format and he should be in a positive frame of mind after his Top 5 finish at the Phoenix Open on the PGA Tour a few weeks ago.
Another past champion here is Thorbjørn Olesen 22/1 – with Ladbrokes – who won the stroke play event in 2014 where he opened with a round of 64 so he obviously enjoys the Lake Karrinyup track. Thorbjørn had a steady desert swing but I think being back here may just give him that bit of confidence his game needs at the moment.
Peter Uihlein 25/1 – with BetFred – really should have a better winning record and so far this year he has started to show the consistency his ball striking deserves. Peter has two Top 10 finishes from four starts in 2017. Uihlein has two Top 10 finishes here on his last two starts making the Top 5 last year when he opened with a round of 65.
My each-way tips
Brett Rumford 50/1 – with Coral – ended last year in great form with Top 25 and Top 5 finishes in his last two events, but it has been a struggle for the Australian so far this year with a withdrawal and missed cut. Brett has three Top 20 finishes here in his last three starts two of which are Top 10s and being back on home soil may just be the boost he needs.
I did tip Mikko Korhonen 50/1 – with BetVictor – last week but his first round of 73 killed any chances he has of challenging, but he still managed to make the Top 20 his second of the season from four starts – the other was a Top 10 finish at the BMW SA Open. Mikko has two Top 15 finishes here in his last two starts and on current form I think he will do well again this week.
Another player that seems to enjoy teeing it up at the Lake Karrinyup CC is Jason Scrivener 50/1 – with Bet365 – who has three Top 20 finishes here from his last four starts and took third place last year shooting all four rounds in the 60s. Jason hasn’t had a great start to the year but being back home and playing on a course he enjoys I feel he will do well this week.
As you can see I haven’t gone for any outside tips this week because of the format but if you are looking for a couple Matthew Griffin 80/1 with 32Red or Wade Ormsby 100/1 – with PaddyPower
As always good luck
