BMW Asian Open Golf Betting

The BMW Asian Open golf tournament in April will again be held at the world-renowned Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club in China. The BMW Asian Open is the first ever tri-sanctioned Chinese Golf Association, Asian Tour and European Tour event to be played in China, and is part of the European Tour’s drive to expand into Asia in general and China in particular. The BMW Asian Open is a men’s professional golf tournament that attracts some of the biggest names from the golfing world.

In 2007, the field included South Africans Ernie Els and Retief Goosen, Irishman Padraig Harrington, Sweden’s Henrik Stensen, Denmark’s Thomas Bjorn and Spain’s Miguel Angel Jimanez. All the players in the Top 10 of the Asian Tour’s standings for 2007 were also present at last year’s championship, and Chinese hopes at the 2008 BMW Asian Open are likely to rest again on veteran Zhang Lianwei and 2007 Singapore Masters champion Liang Wen-chong. Other top Asian players in world golf will also be watched. BMW Asian Open history began in 2002. The tournament was played in Taiwan for its first two years, before moving to the People’s Republic of China. In 2007, the prize fund was $2.3 million, an increase of more than 50% from the 2006 fund of $1.5 million. The prize fund for the BMW Asian Open golf tournament is likely to swell yet again.

Crowds at the BMW Asian Open will watch with interest as Frenchman Raphael Jacquelin returns to defend his title, having dominated proceedings last time around with a comprehensive wire-to-wire victory. The narrow fairways and multiple water hazards of the BMW Asian Open course for 2008 will mean that players competing in the BMW Asian Open will be hard pressed to break Ernie Els’s record round of 10-under-par 62, set at the 2005 BMW Asian Open. Make the BMW Asian Open especially exciting by betting on your favourite players. Visit our BMW Asian Open betting page for tips and information.
