DP World Tour: Singapore Classic odds, tips, predictions, course guide, how to watch and more

The DP World Tour has moved to Asia for the Singapore Classic, a wide-open affair in which three European raiders could upstage the local talent.

Singapore Classic tips

Tom McKibbin To Win @ 18/1
Sebastian Soderberg To Win @ 35/1
Alejandro Del Rey To Win @ 33/1

A trio of Europeans may make an impact in the Singapore Classic, which opens the Asian Swing of the DP World Tour, starting on Thursday morning at Laguna National Resort.

Former Open champion Shane Lowry and vastly experienced Englishman Paul Casey head the market.

Lowry has been competing on the PGA Tour in the United States for the last three weeks, contending in the Cognizant Classic and the Arnold Palmer Invitational, before a strong finish in the Players Championship last week completed a trio of top-20 finishes.

That form in high-grade Stateside company means Lowry is greatly respected for the Singapore Classic. The Irishman is a 9/1 chance to shrug off his PGA Tour near-misses with a DP World Tour success.

Low energy levels may be the issue for Lowry given his hectic recent schedule, with a long flight from Florida to Singapore thrown into the equation.

Casey, who is 12/1 to triumph in Singapore, is probably much fresher than Lowry. The Englishman competes on the LIV circuit, so has fewer events to play and he is teeing up this week in his first DP World Tour event since signing for LIV in the summer of 2022.

Casey has won twice on the DP World Tour in China, but both of those victories came in 2005, and the 46-year-old's best days are probably behind him.

Three candidates to defeat Lowry and Casey are Tom McKibbin, Sebastian Soderberg and Alejandro Del Rey.

McKibbin has been enjoying an ultra-consistent 2024 campaign, with form figures of 25-14-16-4-12-9, and he has arrived this week at a course he loves. Last year - in the inaugural Singapore Classic - he opened with a 64 on his way to 12th place.

McKibbin is 177 places higher in the world rankings for this edition of the Singapore Classic and he has a DP World Tour title under his belt after winning the European Open last summer. He appears a strong 18/1 chance.

Soderberg spends much of his year living in Asia - Black Mountain in Thailand is his practice base - so the Swede relishes competition in this continent.

He can be backed at 35/1 despite some eye-catching early-year form in the Middle East, where he finished ninth in the Ras al Khaimah Championship and sixth in the Bahrain Championship.

Del Rey finished third in last year's Singapore Classic and the power-packed Spaniard will feel he can get into the thick of things again.

The 33/1 chance won on the Alps Tour in 2020, the Challenge Tour in 2022 and he has been looking ready for his breakthrough in the higher grade.

Laguna National's Classic Course sets up well for long drivers with its soft, receptive, paspalum grass fairways. Del Rey is one of the most powerful players on the circuit. If he can find a few fairways, this rising star should make mincemeat of the four par-fives.

Laguna National course guide

The Classic Course at Laguna National Golf Resort Club, Singapore, is a 7,420-yard, par-72, with four par-fives, ten par-fours and four par-threes.
