2018 ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth

Fantasy Golf Picks and Betting Odds for the 2018 ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth

 

THE OVERVIEW

Lake Karrinyup Country Club, Karrinyup, Western Australia – The format at the World Super 6 Perth is extremely unique. The field begins by playing 36 holes. Then there is a standard cut (top 65 and ties) and the shortened field plays another 18 holes. At that point the top 24 advance to a match play tournament (the top eight receiving a first round bye). To add to the rarity, the match play rounds are only played over 6 holes.

Model for this week will include Course history, Current form, and local players.

THE ‘FORE’ SOMES

‘FORE’ SOMES are chosen by selecting one player from a “low tier” betting pool (30:1 or better), two players from a “mid tier” (30:1 – 75:1), and a final player from a “high tier” (75:1 & up).  

KEITH’S ‘FORE’ SOME 

Ryan Fox  (25:1).  The Kiwi bomber is hot off of a 3rd place finish last week at the Maybank Championship and has played well at Lake Karrinyup before. Fox placed T9 in the 2014 Perth International alongside Wade Ormsby, Richard Green, and Andrea Pavan (all also here this week). Currently averaging 317 off the tee and 73.81 percent of GIR. I like Fox’s chances this week. (Paul Peterson very nearly claimed this spot due to his exceptional play spanning back two months now).

Sean Crocker (50:1) & Jazz Janewattananond (66:1).  Unlike going with the experience and locality of Fox in the top pick, Crocker is being selected for recent form and pure ability to play. The recent USC grad has been rather impressive already in his short pro career. T16 in Hong Kong, T7 at the Aussie PGA, T71 at the Dubai Desert Classic, and T6 at the Singapore Open where he finished ahead of Gavin Green, Lucas Herbert, Poom Saksansin, Pat Perez, and Shiv Kapur, just to name a few). Has moved from #1151 on the OWGR in early December to his current spot at #542. Look out for Crocker.  Janewattananond is also young and in excellent current form. After playing in 21 events in 2017, Jazz lead the Asian Tour in Total Against Par (-81) and Total Birdies (284). Finished T4 in Singapore behind only Sergio Garcia, Satoshi Kodaira, and Shaun Norris.

Poom Saksansin (80:1).  All of that effort looking at the Aussie players in the field, and this team ends up with a Kiwi, two Asians, and a Rookie. Fraser, Green, Connelly, Koepka, and Felton all made the short list, but Poom Saksansin is just too good (and fun) not to take here. His numbers for Par-5 Scoring and Birdie Percentage are solid, his performance at the EurAsia Cup was outstanding (and had to have bolstered his confidence a bit), and although the Maybank was a stumble (T93), strong finishes in Hong Kong (T16) and Singapore (T12) point to him feeling good.

 

JOHN’S ‘FORE’ SOME 

Ryan Fox  25:1

Hideto Tanihara  33:1

Andrew “Beef” Johnston  33:1

Poom Saksansin  100:1   **(differing odds come from Will Hill)

 

GAVIN’S ‘FORE’ SOME 

Brett Rumford  28:1

Nick Cullen  50:1

Chase Koepka  66:1

Poom Saksansin  100:1
