The European tour moves to the Doha Golf Club in the UAE for the Commercial bank Qatar Masters. Doha Golf Club was designed by Peter Harradine and opened for play in 1997, measuring 7374-yard.

It incorporates eight strategically positioned lakes, which have been stocked with a variety of fish. 65 giant cacti were imported from the Arizona desert, add 300 palm trees, 10 000 trees, 5,000 shrubs, limestone rock formations and like a lot of the courses in the UEA it offers a beautiful juxtaposed position of beautiful lush fairways to the desert that lies beyond.

The eight artificial lakes weave their way along most of the holes and with the punishing rough, which is made up of desert sand, rocks, trees, shrubs, long grass and clever bunkering, makes accuracy a must, on a course that offers plenty of risk and reward shots.

My tips to win:

Good to see Thorbjørn Olesen 18/1 – with StanJames – bounce back from his missed cut in Malaysia to make the Top 10 at the Perth Super 6s. It has been an average start to the year for Thorbjørn and to be blatantly honest with the amount of talent this lad has, he should be competing against the worlds top players but he just seems to be happy to just plod along. Olesen has had a couple of Top 5s in this event over recent years, but to be fair with this field he should walk the tournament this week, but it comes down to whether he can be bothered to or not.

This weeks defending champion is Jeung hun Wang 22/1 – with BetFred – and he has a couple of Top 15s so far this season but he hasn’t really challenged. Jeung hun is one of those players who will win back-to-back events like he did a couple of years ago and then miss several cuts. One thing to remember from last years win, is the fact that it was the first time Jeunghun had teed it up over the Doha track and he will have a lot of positive memories when he arrives here this week.

I am going to stick with Chris Wood 22/1 – with SportingBet – this week not only because of his runner-up finish at the weekend, but he is also a past champion here and has several other Top 15 finishes. As was evident at the weekend Chris’s iron play is the strongest part of his game and when he can get that putter and his driving in sync he is right up there with the best.

My each-way tips:

Jordan Smith 45/1 – with Bet365 – had a Top 10 finish here last year firing two rounds of 66 along the way and like Jeung hun it was the first time that Jordan had teed it up on this course. It was Smiths first year on the full tour last season and to win an event was a great achievement and I am sure it was the first of many for the Englishman

Will the real Slim Shady please stand! The same can apply to Nicolas Colsaerts 60/1 – with SportingBet – who seems to blow hot and cold. Just when you think Nicolas is on his way back after finishing the backend of last season with a runner-up finish, he then throws in a missed cut. Colsaerts has started the year with a couple of average performances but there have been signs, like at the Dubai Desert Classic where he had three rounds in the 60s only to shoot a final round of 74. Nicolas has only recently started playing in this event regularly and he does have a couple of Top 15 finishes in recent years, but the weakened field this week, he should be challenging.

My outside tip:

Another player who blows hot and cold is Robert Rock 80/1 – with Ladbrokes – who after missing three cuts at the beginning of the year made the Top 10 at the weekend in the Oman Open. Robert is another player that finished well at the backend of last year with two Top 10s from his last four starts, but seemed to have lost his way again. Rock has only recently become a regular player at this event but has had a couple of Top 25 finishes over recent years and coming into this week on the back of a good finish could just see him challenging this week.

Longer Odds:

Try Soomin Lee 200/1 – with BetFred

As always good luck
