Volvo China Open 2019 – European Tour – Free DraftKings Preview and Betting Tips


Brief Look at Last Week

First Round Leader, full pay out at 40/1. Courtesy of Jordan Smith.

Couple of wins in weekend Gpp single entries.

Bombed out of the main contests with too much ownership of the few that missed the cut from last weeks right up. I really should spend more time checking my line ups after getting this article published…

The Course

The Basics

Par 72 with a traditional layout consisting of 4 par 5’s and 4 par 3’s.

Resort style course, littered with water and measures 7,145 yards.

All facets of the game have to be in order to perform well here, this week I am very much looking for players that check boxes in as many categories as possible, maybe with a little less attention focused on the short game and more towards accuracy elements associated to great ball striking, both into the green and off the tee.

Type of grass – Paspalum ‘Platinum’
Height of cut – 219mm
Speed / stimpmeter reading – 10′
Type of grass – Paspalum
Height of cut – 11mm
Generous in width as with most resort style courses and not that undulating that it will cause awkward stances or a lot of thought with elevation changes. The condition of them looks to be immaculate and a joy to play from.
Type of grass – Paspalum
Height of cut – semi 25mm, maintained 63mm
Very consistent rough throughout the course, not to punishing but certainly lush and thick enough to reduce control going into the green.
