WGC HSBC Champions Betting Tips

WGC HSBC Champions betting tipsWGC HSBC Champions betting tips & predictions – inaugurated in 2005 the WGC HSBC Champions is held annually in China. It is the fourth tournament on the WGC calendar along with the WGC Dell Match Play Championship, the WGC Mexico Championship, and the WGC FedEx St Jude Invitational events.

In 2013 the WGC HSBC Champions became an official PGA Tour event and is part of the FedEx Cup schedule. The winner receives a three-year PGA Tour exemption.

The field is limited to 78 and consists primarily of players who have won the top tournaments since the previous WGC HSBC Champions tournament. It also features leading players in the world rankings and money lists of the major tours.

The Sheshan International Golf Course had been the host course since the beginning except in 2012 when the event was moved to the Olazabal Course at Mission Hills. The tournament was upgraded to a World Golf Championship event in 2009.

Sheshan International Golf Course was designed by Nelson & Haworth. The layout is a 7,261 yard Par 72 which features well-placed bunkers throughout and deep collection areas. There are water features on more than half the holes and the greens are undulating. The layout is a solid all-round test of golf.

Last year, Xander Schauffele emerged victorious in the WGC HSBC Champions, beating Tony Finau on the first hole of a playoff. Schauffele birdied the final two holes to make the playoff. It was his third victory on Tour and first WGC title.

Schauffele finished the week T71 for Driving Accuracy, T8 in GIR, 5th for Putts per GIR and 3rd for Birdies

In 2018, Justin Rose over-turned an eight shot deficit with a final round -5 (67) to capture the WGC HSBC Champions trophy. The 54 hole leader, Dustin Johnson was on the cusp of becoming the first player to win three World Golf Championships in the one year, but a final round +5 (77) put paid to that.

“It’s the kind of day you certainly don’t expect. It’s the kind of a day you hope for, dream for but a lot of things need to go your way in order for a day like today to happen, coming from eight shots behind, especially going against a player like DJ”

– Justin Rose

Rose finished the week T61 for Driving Accuracy, T62 in GIR, T45 for Putts per GIR and 1st for Birdies shooting 29 in total.

In 2016, Hideki Matsuyama won the tournament by an impressive seven shots from Henrik Stenson and Daniel Berger. He carded rounds of 66, 65, 68 and 66 rolling in a total of 29 birdies.

“Sheshan has some very special memories for me. It was a great honour to become the first Japanese winner of a World Golf Championships and to do it against such a world-class field was very special”

– Hideki Matsuyama

Matsuyama finished the week T43 for Driving Accuracy, T10 in GIR and 1st for both Putts per GIR and Birdies..

The 2016 champion, Russell Knox, won by two strokes from Kevin Kisner shooting a score of -20 (268). He finished the week T5 for Driving Accuracy, T3 for GIR, 6th for Putts per GIR and T1 for Birdies.

In 2015, Bubba Watson forced a playoff with Tim Clark after a spectacular hole out from the bunker on the 72nd hole.

Bubba went on to win with a birdie on the first playoff hole. He finished the week T12 for GIR, T31 for Putts per Round and T21 for Birdies.

WGC HSBC Champions Betting Tips 2019

Tony Finau golf betting tipsTony Finau 25/1 (E/W) – sticking with Finau again this week who has finished T11 & 2nd in as many visits to Sheshan Intenational. Was only narrowly defeated in a playoff in last year’s edition of the tournament. Finished an uninspiring T59 in last week’s ZOZO Championship, however prior to that he finished in the Top 10 in the Shriners, heading the field for the week in the SG:Tee-To-Green category. Places 17th in this week’s Stas Analysis (based on last season’s stats). Willing to overlook last week’s ‘blip‘ based on course form and stats. Perfect week to get his game back on track.


Charles Howell III golf betting tipsCharles Howell III 50/1 (E/W) – has only played Sheshan International once, finishing a very respectable T15 in 2017. Has hit the ground running this season with a Top 20 and two Top 10’s from four starts. Finished T8 in last week’s ZOZO Championship squaring only 5 bogeys for the week. Around Narashino CC he was T6 in GIR and 1st for Scrambling. A rock solid all-round game puts him inside the Top 15 in this week’s Stas Analysis (based on last season’s stats). Arriving in confident mood just off radar. Weighing up all variables, he represents excellent each way value.
