Betting Note: Betting amounts are based on confidence level. My normal betting amounts are $125, $250 & $500, although I will go as low as $62.50 and as high as $1,000 on occasion.

E/W (Each-Way) bets means you split that amount. So if it is a $250 E/W bet, that means $125 on them to win, $125 on them to place (Usually in the Top 5).

The LPGA KEB-Hanabank tournament is an event that takes place in South Korea. This event has been around since 2001 in one form or another, and is a tricky 54 hole event that takes place at the Sky 72 Golf Club.

It’s taken place here at the Sky 72 Ocean Course since 2008. Amy Yang was the winner of the event last year.

Na Yeon Choi, who came so close for a cash for us last week, has won the event twice and she is the 2nd favourite. Let’s check out the betting odds:

LPGA KEB-Hanabank 2014 Betting Odds:

  1. Inbee Park: 6/1
  2. Na Yeon Choi: 11/1
  3. Suzann Pettersen: 11/1
  4. So Yeon Ryu: 12/1
  5. Hyo Joo Kim: 12/1
  6. Shansan Feng: 14/1
  7. Lydia Ko: 16/1
  8. Jiyai Shin: 18/1
  9. Chella Choi: 22/1
  10. Azahara Munoz: 33/1

LPGA KEB-Hanabank Winner #1: Na Yeon Choi

Choi is an easy choice as our first pick to win the KEB-Hanabank.

She’s been consistent lately and playing some damn good golf so she would already be a favourite as it is. However her previous two wins at this course sell it.

She had a bad time out here last year but she is playing the best golf of her life right now and 11/1 is a great price.

Bet: Na Yeon Choi 11/1. E/W at Bovada for Americans.

LPGA KEB-Hanabank Winner #2: Pornanong Phatlum

We’re getting a decent price of 33/1 on Phatlum. She’s struggled on this course previously, however she is also playing some really solid golf at the moment.

Based on the way she has been playing as of late, and those odds, it’s worth the bet at 33/1 as she has a good chance of finishing in the top 5.

Bet: Pornanong Phatlum 33/1 EW at https://www.GTBets.com.

LPGA KEB-Hanabank Winner #3: Se Ri Pak

There’s a reason Pak is a whopping 65/1 – she just is not playing good golf at the moment.

However she still has a few cashes and this rough patch she is going through – this would be the perfect tournament to change it all around. Pak has had some good finishes here before and really does well on this course.

It’s a long shot bet but we do love them – 66/1 odds let’s go with Pak.

Bet: Se Ri Pak 66/1 E/W at https://www.GTBets.com.

LPGA KEB-HANABANK 2014 RESULTS & ANALYSIS:

We were unlucky with our big 33/1 pick of Pornanong Phatlum. She was doing fairly well going into the final day. Unfortunately she shot a 72. She came 4 strokes off a big cash for us – and at 33/1 odds we have to feel good about that pick.

Unfortunately Na Yeon Choi struggled constantly on this course. She managed to play a lot better on the final day – one has to wonder how she will do next year after hitting that beautiful 67. We will remember her.


Since 2014 I've been providing free golf tips on a weekly basis. Each tournament analysis, research and writing the betting tips takes over 10 hours per tournament. That doesn’t include watching each tournament and taking notes etc. It's why I do less and less non-PGA tips these days.

I’ve delivered a lot of big winners over the years, and all I ask is if you appreciate the work I put in and so I can continue to keep the tips free, a donation is highly recommended and much appreciated.

While I obviously make enough money from my golf bets, this sort of financial support would motivate me to write more content on here. This would include golf prop bets like first round leader, head vs head and much more plus daily fantasy golf articles. Cheers!
