Alexander Levy — 44th

With three European Tour victories to his name, including the 2014 Volvo China Open, Levy is one of the most accomplished players in the field at Topwin. He’s trending toward a good finish this week, which would allow him to pass Victor Dubuisson as the top Frenchman in the world ranking and provide fantasy value in one fell swoop.

With two top 10s in his last three starts, Levy will bring some momentum into this week. That recent stretch includes a tie for eighth at last week’s Shenzhen International, where he closed with three consecutive rounds in the 60s, including a Saturday 64, to rocket up the leaderboard. While he’s a former champion at this week’s event, his win came during the tournament’s one-year stay at Genzon Golf Club; still, he managed to tie for 28th in his Topwin debut last year, so he’ll still have some experience to build on.

Levy has become one of the more prominent rank-and-file names on the European Tour, and while that distinction is reflected in his salary for this week, $9,400 really isn’t too steep. He’s got as good a chance as anyone to make a run at the win, so invest with confidence.
