ALEXANDER LEVY won the China Open when it was first staged at Shenzen in 2014 and the Frenchman enjoys his trips to the country.
With top-30 finishes on his last seven trips to China including a fifth in his debut in this competition two years ago he loves the hospitality and courses.
As a former course winner this 7200-yard, tree-lined track holds no fears for him and he has shown some form with a T4 at the Maybank in Malaysia in February.
Levy's driving accuracy is only 54.4% but with a GIR stat of 69.4% and Putts per GIR of 1.756 it doesn’t hold him back.
I’ve been watching American Peter Uihlein for a while now and it’s beginning to look like he is getting the results his game demands. With three top-10 finishes in his last seven outings I think he is well worth a gamble.
He’s played a lot in Asia over the past few years and had a T4 in this event two years ago. His driving accuracy is worse than Levy’s at 51.7% but also has a good GIR of 68.7% and Putts per GIR of 1.73.
