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 WGC HSBC Champions 2017 event takes place this week.

It’s been part of the PGA & European Tour since 2013 when prior to that it was a European Tour only event.

If you’re looking for historical data they have played every year at the Sheshan Golf Club except for 2012 when they played at Mission Hills Golf Club.

It’s a prestigious tournament with the biggst prize money in East Asia. Last year saw Hideki Matsuyama absolutely dominate it to win in 7 strokes, the biggest margin.

Usually it’s a lot tighter than that being decided by up to 3 strokes max. In 2014 it went to a playoff with Bubba up against Tim Clark.

Let’s see what we got this week:

WGC HSBC Champions 2017 Betting Tips:

Phil Mickelson: Granted it’s been a few years since Mickelson played here but the big man has won it twice when it was part of the European Tour. Most importantly he has really seemed to rediscover his form. He had a solid performance at the Safeway Open and wasn’t too bad at the BMW Championship earlier.

Phil isn’t playing too many tournaments at the moment but with a weakened field here and surprisingly nice odds Phil could do the business here. I’m on him at 1/2 unit to win & E/W.

Ross Fisher: Fisher is coming into this one on fire after a 2nd place at the Italian Open and an impressive 2nd place at the Links. He’s also had two Top 10 performances here in the last two years and I’m happy backing the Englishman for 1/2 unit to win & E/W.


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!
