Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship: Who will ‘clinch victory’ in the United Arab Emirates?



The European Tour continues this week at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, where several top golfers will be battling it out for glory.

The action gets underway on Thursday at Abu Dhabi Golf Course in the United Arab Emirates.


October 8, 2015 – South Korea, Incheon : United States Team Player Jordan Spieth action on the 15th hole during the PGA Presidents Cup round one 4some 5match opening in Jack Nicklaus GC, Incheon.

First staged in 2006, the competition returns to the iconic course for the 15th consecutive year. Not only is a prize fund of $7m up for grabs, but the tournament is also one of eight Rolex Series events that feature in the 2020 Race to Dubai.

Irishman Shane Lowry won the tournament last time out, and he returns in 2020 looking for more success.

Lowry clinched a thrilling one-shot victory over South African Richard Sterne this time last year, and he’s currently 18/1 to defend his title.

Also returning is two-time winner Tommy Fleetwood. He’ll be aiming to become only the second person to win the tournament on three occasions.

Fleetwood has been given odds of 10/1 to do just that.

The only golfer to achieve that feat is Martin Kaymer, who lifted the trophy in 2008, 2010 and 2011. Kaymer is back in Abu Dhabi once again, and is currently 70/1 to clinch further glory.

There are, however, several top US stars standing in his way, with the likes of Patrick Cantlay and Bryson DeChambeau in attendance.

Having missed the tournament last year, DeChambeau is back to challenge. He’s available at 22/1 to secure victory, with Cantlay currently favourite at 9/1.

But serial winner Brooks Koepka will also be battling it out in the UAE. He can be backed at 11/1 to clinch success this week.

Also looking to be in contention come round four are Louis Oosthuizen and Matt Fitzpatrick. They are currently 16/1 and 20/1 respectively to lift the trophy.

Fresh from his South African Open victory, Branden Grace will be out for further glory this month. And Viktor Hovland will also be out to make his mark. The former is currently 30/1 to be crowned champion, with the latter available at 35/1.

Both Thomas Pieters and Robert MacIntrye find themselves at 40/1.
Other big names at the tournament include Danny Willett and Sergio Garcia, who are both 40/1 to get their careers back on track with an important win.

Matt Wallace and Charl Schwartzel are also involved in a very strong field. They have both been given odds of 55/1 to win the tournament.

Lee Westwood is currently 70/1 to clinch success.

Ian Poulter tied sixth at the event last year, and finds himself an outsider at 90/1 to achieve a must better result and win the competition in 2020. Also on the fringes is Eddie Pepperell at 125/1.
