BMW PGA Tips: Li HaoTong
Arrives on the back of two top-11 finishes and can close out a big tournament. Won the China Open last year.
Recent editions of the PGA Championship have gone to bright young talents of the European Tour. I’m thinking of Matteo Manassero and Ben An most recently and Li HaoTong has a similar profile.
The 21-year-old made his name by winning his national open, the China Open last year and that is the hallmark of player who can withstand a huge amount pressure. Winning the European Tour’s flagship event will almost seem easier by comparison!
Li HaoTong has hit some form in recent weeks, finishing T11 at the China Open and third last week in Italy and he has experience of playing Wentworth. Last year he finished T27, improving over the weekend with two rounds of 71 as conditions got tougher. Back Li HaoTong at 60/1 with Sky Bet and get 7 places at 1/4 odds.
