Expert Sleeper Picks for the HSBC Champions Tournament

WGC - HSBC Champions Golf Course

Sheshan International Golf Club

A par 72 7266 yard course Sheshan International is an average course and given that the HSBC tournament has been played there every year but one since 2005 you can expect the top players that get invited every year to have an edge regarding course history.

Sheshan is not a tough course and with wider fairways I think it is better to have a little length off the tee and give up a bit in driving accuracy this week. From past years having a solid approach game and solid putting is the key to winning. Over the last 5 years the WGC winners putted an average of 26.1 putts per round. Look for players that have a good putter going and have a good history on Bent grass greens. The reason to also target long hitters is that the four Par 5’s at Sheshan are some of the easier holes to score on and taking advantage of Par 5 scoring is great way to dominate the field. Check out the field for who’s been solid in Par 5 scoring stats in the last few weeks leading up to the HSBC Champions Tournament. If you are doing a DraftKings lineup it is important to pay attention to the scoring system and target sleeper picks that will score well this week.

2018 WGC-HSBC Fantasy Golf Sleeper Picks

Emiliano Grillo - So far in 3 PGA Tour events Grillo has finished in 41st, 2nd and 55th. He has been up and down but has a good track record in two tries at the WGC HSBC Champions event finishing as high as 11th two years ago. He will be under the radar this week but should put up a good showing and could even contend if he can put all four rounds together this week. A nice sleeper pick for the HSBC Champions to look at this week.
