No rest for the wicked as they say and no sooner has the 2018 Race To Dubai comes to a close the new 2019 wraparound season begins as the European Tour moves to Asia. This week we are at the Royal Hong Kong Golf Club, which was renamed the Hong Kong Golf Club after dropping the Royal back in 1997.

The club was founded in May 1889. Permission was obtained to play at Happy Valley, an area that was also used for football, polo, hockey and military parades, so the golfers had to take their turn. By 1891 membership had boomed so a small shed was built where refreshments were served. Due to the "crowded conditions" it meant that from 1896 ladies were only permitted to play golf on a restricted basis.

As the membership grew the Captain and Club officials were forced to find a new location. In September 1898, land at Deep Water Bay was found and the land was leased with the agreement of the Government and a clubhouse was built in the same year. In 1903 Happy Valley was turned over exclusively to the Golf Club, except for Wednesdays and Saturdays when soccer and cricket were played. Ladies were only allowed to play on Sundays.

In 1911 negotiations took place with the Government and local farmers to secure sufficient land in Fanling to build a full 18 holes. The Old Course opened for play at the end of 1911. Additional land was acquired in the late 1920's for the New Course, which opened in November 1931. A third course, the Eden was added in 1970.

My tips to Win:

With two Top 6s from his two starts here and firing all eight rounds in the 60s Tommy Fleetwood 13/2 – with PaddyPower – obviously enjoys teeing it up at the Hong Kong Golf club. I did tip Tommy last week due to the fact he had won the Tour Championship there and was in good form and although he did finish in the Top 20, I think he will be looking forward to being back out on a course that suits his game and I make him the man to beat this week.

Rafa Cabrera Bello 11/1 – with SkyBet – obviously has those same feelings about the Hong Kong Golf Club track as he also has a great record here having teed it up five times he has only been outside the Top 15 twice and has back-to-back runner-up finishes in the last two years and I think he feels he has unfinished business this week.

What surprised me about Lucas Bjerregaard 16/1 – with Bet365 – record here is that he played the tournament in 2014-15 had two Top 5 finishes one a runner-up and hasn’t played in the event since. I am sure Lucas will be looking forward to teeing it up again here this week and with a win, a runner-up and eight other Top 10s so far this year, he will be in confident mood when he comes through those gates.

Each-way tips:

Jason Scrivener 40/1 – with SportingBet – is still waiting for his maiden European Tour win, but from his two starts over the Hong Kong golf club track Jason has managed a Top 10 finish each time including a third-place finish two years ago. Scriverner has shot seven rounds in the 60s here with a 70 making up the other round. Jason has six Top 25 finishes from his last eight starts on the European Tour, which should see him in confident mood to challenge again this week.

After a Top 5 finish in his home Open Championship at the weekend, Australian Marcus Fraser 55/1 – with SportingBet – will be looking to challenge again this week. Marcus has played in this event nine times and has six Top 15 finishes from those starts including two Top 5s and three other Top 10s and I think he will be in the thick of it again this week.

Outside tip:

2014 see Angelo Que 125/1 – with Bet365 – lose in a play-off to win this title. He has played in this event twelve times and apart from the runner-up finish he has three other Top 15 finishes. Angelo won the TOP Cup Tokai Classic on the Japan Golf Tour in September and I am sure that will do a lot for his confidence when turning up here this week, especially firing a final round 66 to win that event.

Longer odds:

Try Phachara Khongwatmai 175/1 – with Bet365

As always good luck
