The unique ISPS Handa World super Tournament is back again played in Perth at the Lake Karrinyup Country Club.
This event has a novel format with 54 holes of stroke play followed by a match play format. Cuts are made in the stroke play after 36 and 54 holes and the top 24 players after 54 holes go through to the match play section with the top 8 qualifying automatically for the quarter-finals and the remaining 16 playing off for the quarter-final spots
The course itself is a par 72 tree lined layout with wide fairways. There is not a lot of rough to speak of and a good iron game enabling you to find the Greens in Regulation could be a key to victory.
Belgium’s Thomas Pieters heads the betting at 14/1 in what looks a very open but relatively weak tournament. This is certainly an event where it could pay to wait till the final round to get heavily involved.

Tom Lewis each way at 16/1
Lewis is a regular in my staking plans and is usually at much bigger prices, however this a fairly weak field and Lewis has been in good form although he doesn’t have any form to speak of in this event. I like him this week and he is my sole selection from the top few in the betting.
Paul Dunne each way at 50/1
Dunne gave us a run for our money last week, eventually finishing 17th having looked like placing at one point. It was a nice return to form for the Irishman and I am happy to be getting the 50/1 this week.
Nick Cullen each way at 100/1
Cullen has good form here with 3 consecutive Top 20 finishes (he played the event before it was co-sanctioned) and he showed up well last week with a Top 25. At the price he looks worth a small interest.
Nick Flanagan each way at 125/1
Flanagan is something of a golfing journeyman, but he started very quickly last week, only to fade out of contention finishing 10th. The performance may have been a one off but at 125/1 I am prepared to chance him coming good again.
