You could be Luiten the bookies!
This week the European Tour heads to South Korea. It is a new course and it will be difficult to pick a winner because there is no course form. We will need to look at current form, the quality of the field and their prices to attempt to find a winner.
The venue used to be a private members club and looking at the quality of the field, it is obvious that there is a good purse on offer.
One player competing in this stellar field is Lee Westwood (6/1). He arrives in South Korea as world number one and he celebrated his 38th birthday by winning the Indonesian Masters in Jakarta last weekend.
I never back a player for back-to-back wins, but he is one of the standout names in this quality field.
The layout of the course is supposed to be similar to that of the China and a player that excelled last week was Soren Kjeldsen (25/1). The Dane is one of the most underrated players on the European Tour and he possesses some fantastic iron-play.
He tied-for second in China last week and finished tied for thirteenth in Malaysia the previous week. He has won in 2008 and 2009 on the European Tour and with his strong performances in Europe, he is difficult to ignore this week.
Another player to consider is Joost Luiten (33/1), he is still hunting for his maiden European Tour victory but he has shown some solid but not spectacular form this season. He is still young and has to be one of the best talents on the Tour, he has finished in the top-20 in his last four events.
He shot a 66 in his first round at China and due to his form, I think he is a cracking bet to be the first round leader at 50/1, this year he has hit 72.82% of Greens In Regulation.
One of my favourite players on the Tour is Rafael Carbrera-Bello (35/1), he was poor in the third and fourth round at the China Open but he has won on the European Tour previously and he finished fourth at the Malaysian Open.
He is still young and he is fourteenth in the Race To Dubai. He has made the cut at every event this season and he has to be one of the most consistent players on the Tour.
One player who will attract the crowds is Dustin Johnson (14/1), the American has taken time out from his home tour to test himself in Asia. He is a fantastically talented player but he will not be used to the conditions or the humidity. It is a tough week to tip a winner on the European Tour and Joost Luiten (33/1) could be the man to deliver at this event.
