This six-player fantasy golf team for the European Tour’s Schenzhen International will give any fantasy manager an edge over the competition.

The Shenzhen International, the European Tour‘s first China stop in the 2017 season, should produce some exciting golf, particularly for fantasy team managers.

This 3rd edition of the Shenzhen International boasts a field of international power players, headlined by Bubba Watson but including Tommy Fleetwood, Alexander Levy, Bernd Wiesberger, and Kiradech Aphibarnrat among others. As a result, fantasy managers will enjoy a wealth of strong options as they put together their teams.

The Genzon Golf Club Course A will play a long 7200 yards this week, with tree-lined fairways that will offer a good test of accuracy for long bombers like Watson. But length shouldn’t be the only criterion for tapping a player for your team. The hazards, Dragon Lake the most prominent, will call for precision shot-making, and the greens will test the best of the field’s putters. Look for guys who know how to work their way around a tricky golf course without getting into too much trouble.

Genzon Golf Club, one of the most highly rated tracks in China, has previously hosted the Volvo China Open but is not a track well-known and frequently played by the field of contenders. It’s built inside the CITIC Botanical Garden and will provide a gorgeous natural setting for the week’s tournament.

My fantasy team picks for the Shenzhen International should work for any of the several golf games available to fantasy managers.

Let’s take a look.
