2023 Korea Championship betting tips
The Banker: Yannik Paul @ 22/1
I love Yannik Paul again this week. He came back last week like he’d never spent a month away from tournament action, and followed up back-to-back 2nd place finishes, with another 6th in Japan last week.
The American-educated German golfer continues to prove he is one of the better players on the DP World Tour and is firmly in the hunt for a spot on the European Ryder Cup team this year.
With a bit more room off the tee this week, expect Paul to succeed again this week and contend for his second DP World Tour title.
The Each-Way: David Micheluzzi @ 66/1
David Micheluzzi has dominated in Australia in 2023, winning twice, finishing 2nd two more times, and also posting a further 4th place finish.
If he can carry that form over to his first DP World Tour start of the year, then he looks incredibly overpriced at 66-1.
Obviously, he’s got to prove he’s capable of winning at this level as well, but until we know otherwise, there’s little reason to believe his current form won’t translate to success in fields of this strength.
Perhaps a nod to the future, let’s see what this Australian is made of.
The Long-Shot: Deon Germishuys @ 250/1
Deon Germishuys finished 9th last week in Japan, having been 3rd after round one and 5th going into the weekend. A tough Saturday cost the talented South African from challenging, but it was an impressive performance nonetheless.
According to OWGR, last week was the fourth-best finish of his career, so perhaps we should temper expectations on him, but as a winner on the Sunshine Tour and someone who has finished runner-up on the Challenge Tour, we have seen winning and contending upside from Germishuys at his best.
I’ll take a chance at 250-1 that he follows up on last week’s performance as he heads to Korea in a confident fashion.
