Volvo China Open Richard Castka Sportpixgolf.com
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 a runner-up finish here last year and a Top 5 finish when the event was held at Royal Selangor GC, Jorge Campillo 18/1 with SportingBet seems to enjoy teeing it up at the Maybank Championship. Jorge comes into this event with back-to-back runner-up finishes and will be looking to finally get his maiden European Tour victory here this week.
Fabrizio Zanotti 25/1 with Ladbrokes was the defending champion of this event last year but didnt manage a decent defence of his title, finishing outside the Top 50. Fabrizio should come into this week in confident form after three straight Top 25 finishes including a runner-up at the Oman Open.
Another player who comes into this week on the back of a runner-up finish is Mike Lorenzo-Vera 25/1 with SportingBet Mike had a Top 10 on this course two years ago, which contained a second round 65 showing he knows how to score round this track and in his current form I expect him to be challenging come Sunday.
I have tipped Jason Scrivener 40/1 with BetFred several times this year and he has four Top 10s from his six starts and that includes two Top 5 finishes on the European Tours wraparound season. Jason played in this event last year and missed the cut, but I feel its a very different Scrivener turning up this week.
With a Top 5 in this event last year Pablo Larrazabal 50/1 with SportingBet should be looking forward to this week. Pablo is another player that has enjoyed his many trips to Malaysia and with good reason as he has had four other Top 20 finishes with three of them being Top 10 places.
This weeks defending champion is Shubhankar Sharma 80/1 with UniBet and it has been a big fall from grace for the lad from Jhansi, India. This tournament was his second win of the year and he went onto have two other Top 10s and play in WGC events, but the slide out of competing for tournaments had already started to set in. A sixth-place finish at the beginning of the European Tours wraparound season is his best from seven starts, but I am sure he will want to put up a decent defence of his title and these are good odds.
