Hao tong Li
This week sees the start of the European Tours Final Series events, which again kicks off in the Turkish golf region of Belek this year at the Carya Belek course designed by Thomson – five times Open Champion – Perrett and Lobb.
The course has only recently come online in the last couple of years but has already hosted several international tournaments. Weighing in at 7,000 metres – 7,655-yards – this classic heathland design offers naturally cultivated heather – courtesy of the nursery where nearly a million heather plants were grown – and rolling fairways that wind through natural pine, eucalyptus trees, and across undulating sand ridges.
The white sand bunkers and mixture of terrains offer a tough test of golf and there is a premium on being in the right part of the fairway to attack the flags.

I am away on a press trip to Italy at the moment, look out for the reviews in the 2019 Masters issue, but here are my picks for this week
My tips to Win:
A third-place finish see Justin Rose 9/2 – with Bet365 – just miss out on defending his WGC HSBC Champions title, but he has another chance this week to defend yet another title at the Turkish Airlines Open. Justin has an impressive record on the European Tour and its co-sanctioned events this year having only been outside the Top 25 once from his ten starts and has six Top 10 finishes and he will be the man to beat again this week.
A player that I think will run Justin close is past champion of this event over the Regnum Carya Golf & Spa resort course Thorbjørn Olesen 16/1 – with Bet365 – who finished inside the Top 10 at the weekends WGC event. Thorbjørn won in style here two years ago finishing three clear of the field and fired a second round 62 along the way and I feel he will be in the mix again come Sunday.
A final round 70 see Hao tong Li 22/1 –Bet365 – move up the leaderboard and just outside of the Top 10 places at the WGC which made it his fourth Top 25 finish from his last five starts. Hao Tong had a runner-up finish here two years ago firing a final round 65 and I am sure his current form and those positive memories will see him in the thick of it come Sunday afternoon.
It’s been a tough year for Thomas Pieters 30/1 – with Bet365 – and it couldn’t have been any harder than watching Europe regain the Ryder Cup from the side-lines after having such a positive impact on the team in Hazeltine. I am not sure if that was a spur but some solid golf at the weekends WGC may just signal that he is starting to turn things around and coming back to a course where he had an eleventh-place finish last year, may just give him the belief he needs.
Another player that should be coming into this week in confident mood is Kiradech Aphibarnrat 33/1 – with 888Sport – who’s final round 71 see him move up three places and into the Top 5 at the WGC event at the weekend. Kiradech has finished inside the Top 25 both times this event has been held over the Regnum Carya Golf & Spa resort and two 66s last year see him finish just outside of the Top 5 and I am sure he will be looking to continue his good form this week.
After starting the year so well and looking like he would finally make that winning breakthrough Jorge Campillo 100/1 – SpreadEx – seemed to lose his way, I am not sure if that was due to frustration of not being able to finally get a tournament over the line or a technical swing problem. The lad is a talented golfer and it only takes a bit of confidence to suddenly get back into the rhythm of things and I think he may have found that playing all four rounds at the weekend.
