On The Range at The UBS Hong Kong Open
Posted: November 15, 2012
This week we're at The Hong Kong Golf Club
After the excitement of last week's finish in Singapore, where Titleist ambassador Matteo Manassero secured his third European Tour event at the age of just 19, players went several different ways at the airport.
Some flew to Melbourne for the Talisker Masters, some to Johannesburg for the SA Open Championship, while we followed others to HK for the UBS Hong Kong Open.
Played at The Hong Kong Golf Club, it looks as though there could be some low scores, as the course measures just 6,734 yards for a par of 70.
At the time of writing, Titleist ambassadors Andrew Dodt, Gregory Bourdy and Matteo Manassero, as well as Titleist ball loyalists Jose Maria Olazabal, Fredrik Andersson Hed, Michael Campbell and Joel Sjoholm, are all near the top of the leaderboard.
With fast greens, it looks like approach shots and putting will be the key to success this week - let's hope it's as interesting come Sunday as it was last week.
One thing's more certain - Titleist will be the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the Hong Kong Open with 87 players, more than four times the nearest competitor with 21.
