THE WGC-HSBC Champions tournament at the Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai has certainly pulled in the players this week. What with 18 Major winners and 40 of the world's top 50 taking part picking a winner is going to be tough but I’ll give it a good shot.

I’ve backed Henrik Stenson (16-1, various) for the last few months and feel he still has another win to come. He’s definitely on form with his victory in the Tour Championship recently and is number one in greens in regulation on US Tour but he’s due an MRI scan on a wrist injury this week so we might have to give him a miss. If he is fit he must be a good bet.

A lot of money will go on Phil Mickelson but one who has grabbed my eye is Jordan Spieth (33-1, bet365). He has had a superb rookie year finishing eighth in the FedEx and earning nearly $4 million. With nine top-10 finishes this year, 12 sub-70s in his last 20 rounds and third in the all-round stats on the US Tour he could finish well up the field.

One man who has done everything right since the beginning of September on the European Tour is American Peter Uihlein (35-1, bet365). In his last four tournaments he has finished in the top five in three of them and is 37 under par earning over 800,000 Euros in the process.

Had he not had a disastrous 75 in the second round in the BMW last week he could have won instead of finishing fifth. He looks the type of player that once he gets on a run he’s hard to stop.

Martin Kaymer (20-1, Paddy Power) hasn’t had a good year but there is a slight showing of a return to form. He is a past winner here (2011) coming back from five shots behind (the largest final day comeback in a WGC event).

I have also got to add to my list Hideki Matsuyama at 40-1 (various). Don’t ask me why but I’ve just got a feeling!

    As Uilein is on our tour i do an ew double with Speith and Uihlein. Didn’t fancy them this week so went for another favourite of mine who generates big odds. Aphibarnrat is a birdie expert, but also fires in the odd double. I’m the other way round?

    • Mr Fixit 9 years ago

      Donald, I took the Spieth tip so a decent start.
