The best on the European Tour, Asian Tour and the PGA Tour of Australasia will make their way to Perth, Australia this week for the ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth. This tournament is unlike almost any other with a unique stroke play-match play hybrid structure. The first 36 holes of stroke play are followed by a cut, followed by another 18 holes of stroke play after which the top 24 advance to a knockout match play competition. The top eight then receive a bye to round two while the remaining players play head-to-head to see which players will advance to the final round. As is the case with any tournament, there is always one winner left standing above the rest. While the structure is unique, the rules aren’t actually that complicated and the format can add to the level of entertainment.
Event: ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth
Date: February 8th-12th, 2018
Location: Lake Karrinyup Country Club, Perth, Australia
If the first edition of this tournament taught us anything at all it is that the home contingent should have the edge in this week’s event. 11 of the final 16 golfers standing in last year’s ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth were Australian, and basically every one of the top Australians playing this week have fared well recently. It will definitely be interesting to see whether the home favorites are able to lead the way again in Perth this week.
Past Five Winners
2017: Brett Rumford
2015: Louis Oosthuizen
2014: Thorbjorn Olesen
2013: Jin Jeong
2012: Bo Van Pelt
What To Know About The Course
Lake Karrinyup was the host venue for all five editions of the Perth International so this year’s field will have a good idea of what it will take to win this week. The first two winners of the Perth International ranked tied for third and 11th in Driving Accuracy. Accuracy off the tee should once again be extremely important this week. Only two of the top-10 last year ranked inside the top-21 in Driving Distance so it makes sense not to get too caught up in that department. Meanwhile, finding the greens has also been key as all four winners ranked inside the top-eight in Greens In Regulation. Keep that in mind when breaking down the field for this week’s event.
2014 Perth International winner Thorbjorn Olesen, Ryan Fox and Jason Scrivener are the three sports betting favorites to win this week’s tournament. All three of those golfers are listed at +2000 odds to win outright. Meanwhile, Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Lee Westwood and Satoshi Kodaira are next in line with all three of those golfers listed at +2500 odds. Brett Rumford is the defending champion and is listed at +2700 odds to win here again this year. Andrew Johnston, Miyazoto Yusaku and Paul Peterson round out the list of betting favorites for this year’s ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth.
A Good Matchup To Bet: Lee Westwood over Satoshi Kodaira
Kodaira is ranked among the sports betting favorites to win this tournament outright, but we prefer to fade him against a better bet to win it all in Westwood. The Englishman is coming off a strong performance at the Maybank Championship in which he finished tied for 11th and he is one of the highest-ranked players in this week’s field. Westwood has openly talked about how much he loves the format for this tournament and he has the tools to excel in Perth once again this week. There is decent value betting on Westwood to beat out Satoshi in the head-to-head sports betting matchup for the ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth.
Top-Five Pick: Thorbjorn Olesen
The great Dane is another fan of the format for the ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth. He is also worth backing as a capable contender to win this event outright. Olesen won at this course in 2014 when he won the Perth International, so he should be a trustworthy option to pick this week. While the value isn’t outstanding, Olesen should be a safe pick to finish in the top-five at this tournament.
