Jeung Hun Wang
The European Tour moves to Asia this week for the Maybank Championship and pitches up at the the Saujana Golf & Country Clubs. The Palm Course – nicknamed The Cobra – was renovated by Ron Fream in 2015 who added length to the course and new green complexes, he also replaced the 6th and 7th holes with two new holes at 8 and 9.
The course has hosted the Malaysian Open seven times, one of the main battles players will have this week is the weather with scorching temperatures, so hydration will be very important this week. Once players have acclimatised they will then have to do battle with the small greens with their elaborate complexes.
The course twists and turns on the former oil palm and rubber plantation, where palm trees line the fairway and features several water hazards.
The first time the Malaysian Open was held at Saujana Golf & Country Clubs the then winner, Tray Tyner, stated that the Palm was “the hardest and most demanding golf course I have ever seen or played”.

My tips to win:
With this years Ryder Cup being held in France, captain Thomas Bjorn will be looking for some French presence on the team and I am sure Alexander Levy 16/1 – PaddyPower – will be desperate to be part of that squad. Alexander comes into this week in good form after his Top 5 finish at the Dubai Desert Classic and with his Top 5 finish over the Saujana G&CC track last year he will be looking to get that early season win this week.
I don’t normally go for back-to-back winners, but I did last week with John Rahm and I am going to again this week with Haotong Li 20/1 – with SportingBet – who won the Dubai Desert Classic where he shot rounds of 66, 66, 64 and 69 – a great indication of where his golf game is at the moment. Haotong had a Top 5 in this event last year firing a final round 65 that see him storm up the leaderboard and I am sure he will be looking forward to this week.
Jeunghun Wang 33/1 – with Bet Coral – is another player that should be in confident mood this weekend after his sixth place finish in Dubai and finishing in the Top 15 at Abu Dhabi Championship shows it has been a productive desert swing for the South Korean. Jeunghun missed the cut here last year but on his current form I think we will see him challenging again this week.
My each-way tips
Thomas Detry 40/1 – with Coral – has had quite a productive desert swing with two finishes inside the Top 25, there has been no doubting the lads ability, it was consistency that he was lacking. His first five starts this year on the wraparound tour has seen him miss the cut once and that was after the Christmas and New Year break and he has had two Top 10s from his other four starts
One player that didn’t miss the cut here last year is David Lipsky 50/1 – with PaddyPower – who took the runner-up spot and will know doubt be looking forward to teeing it up here again this week. David was in contention at the Dubai Desert Classic but his final round 70 wasn’t enough to help him challenge, but I am sure he will take a lot of positives from his performance as it was the first cut he has made on the wraparound season.
My outside tips:
There are a couple of good outside tips this week, first is defending champion Fabrizio Zanotti 66/1 – with StanJames – who did miss the cut in Dubai but made the Top 10 in Abu Dhabi and if he gets off to a solid start he will put up a good defence of his title. Jaidee Thongchai 125/1 – with BetFred – hasn’t had the greatest of starts to this years wraparound season but has won twice over this track when the Malaysian Open was held here.
Panuphol Pittayarat 300/1 – with BetFred – won his first tournament at the Indonesia Open last year and also had a Top 10 finish in this event.
As always good luck
