Fleming Golf tips - HSBC and Sanderson Farm
Words: Nick Fleming
Please note the early start of the HSBC in Sheshan. Get your bets on before midnight tonight. The winning run came to an end last weekend with Sergio Garcia winning in Spain and Brooks Koepka in South Korea, both were favs so not on my radar for betting purposes! But we did get Ashley Chester placed at 74/1 in Andalucía and Gary Woodland 2nd at 40/1.
Bet by midnight tonight

Weather slightly windy first two days then dry and calm
2 pts win Hideki Matsuyama 25/1 Japan’s no 1 player has now recovered from injury, he won this event a few years ago.
1-5 pts win Jon Rahm 27/1 I know I said never again but he's so well suited by this course for big hitters, hopefully beating Tiger Woods in Ryder cup singles will spur him on???
1-5 pts win Tony Finau 29/1 America's mister consistent always on the leader board but usually the bridesmaid!! I think this season he will deliver a few events.
1 pt win Cameron Smith 64/1 I have to keep backing this gifted young Australian, he’s going to pop up sometime soon.
1/2 pt win Branden Grace 119/1 South African who has had a disappointing year no doubt but he loves this course and he's double the odds I thought!
1/2 pt win Xander Schauffle 56/1 American who was rookie of the year 2 seasons ago, he's been disappointing but I have followed him for two years now and he has major chance!!

1 -5 pts win S Im 22/1 for me he's the class player this week
1 pt win Dylan Fritelli 29/1 top South African that won 3 times 2 years ago on European tour -he’s the top ranked player this week.
1 pt win Aaron Baddeley 28/1 best putter in the field, normally struggles with his driver but signs lately that’s no longer a problem?
1 pt win Denny McCarthy 40/1 young American who is tipped for the top
1/2 pt win Ricky Barnes 209/1 a streak player that equalled the course record last season, great putter if he can stay out of the rough.
1/2 pt win John Huh 125/1 under the radar American who isn't a big hitter but that not important on this course.
1/2 pt win Grayson Murray 64/1 always plays well here, he also knows how to win which most in this field will never do.
