Jeunghun Wang returns to the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha GC in Qatar this week, 12 months on from his impressive victory in extra holes.

Last year Wang arrived in Qatar with a growing reputation after two ET wins in 2016, but his form in desert conditions was especially noteworthy. He had finished T2 in the Asian Tour's 2014 Dubai Open, T17 in the DP World Tour Championship and T11 in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship. He opened 69-67 to tie the lead, added a Saturday 65 to grab a three-shot 54-hole edge and then won a three-man play-off when caught. Since then he's added four more Middle Eastern top 30s, the best of them when T6 in last month's Dubai Desert Classic, making up for the missed cut there last year, his only outright failure in the region. Finished T26 last week in Oman when his first round didn't fire and he was pushing thereafter. Given good fortune with his tee time there looks every reason for him to thrive again.

Matteo Manassero will make a sixth appearance in the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha GC in Qatar this week.

Four times out of five the Italian has failed to make the weekend in Doha and in the last three years the reasons have been clearcut: he's only found 39.3% of fairways every single time, quite a contrast to his figure of 80.4% in 2013 which was the best of the week and enabled him to finish T22 (last year Jordan Smith attested to the difficulty of playing this course from the rough). The better news is that he played well last week, lying T9 at 36 holes and T14 after 54. Even so, he couldn't push on and recorded just T31. He's managed a mere five top ten finishes in his last 100 starts, but has at least made five of his last six cuts. Slim pickings for one who was once full of so much promise however.

Lucas Bjerregaard needs to kick start his 2018 in this week's Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha GC in Qatar.

The Dane's returns since the hot spell which saw him notch three top tens, including a maiden European Tour win, in September and October have been less than eye-catching. In fact he has made ten starts since then, missed half the cuts, and his best result is T37. All hope, therefore, comes from an improving record at the course. He posted 75-73 to miss the cut on debut in 2015, broke par three laps in four to notch T41 in 2016, and stepped it up 12 months ago. He opened with 69-68 and closed with a 66 for T11. Only Saturday's 73 prevented a genuine tilt at the title. That more recent form looms large however.

Romain Wattel makes an eighth visit to Doha GC this week for the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.

The Frenchman's record in this event has had three distinct stages. On his first three visits he made the cut, but was never in contention (T59-T35-T49). In 2014, but for a round three 74, he hung around the top ten all week for T11. Since then he's collected a hat-trick of missed weekends. His victory in last September's KLM Open has not triggered a return to his consistent ways. Instead he continues to drift, with the odd sighting. T11 in the Maybank Championship is his seasonal best and, indeed, his best effort since that win.

Richard Sterne needs a lift from his sedate current and course form as he heads to this week's Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha GC in Qatar.

It's never quite happened for the short South African at this venue. It's not so much that he has big problems with the layout, more that he hasn't found the secret to going low. He's 3-for-5 with weekend finishes of T21-T27-T33, but only one of his 16 laps has been sub-70 and that was nothing more dramatic than 68. His form is about the same: on a run of 19-for-21 having played four rounds in his last 13 starts yet only once creeping inside the top ten (T9 in the European Masters). Ranked eighth for Ball Striking whilst T37 in last week's NBO Oman Open.

World No. 47 Dylan Frittelli turns his attention toward PGA National's Champion Course ahead of his tournament debut at this week's Honda Classic.

The University of Texas standout has been honing his craft overseas since graduation. Frittelli won twice on the Challenge Tour (once in 2013 and then again in 2016). His strong play in 2016 earned him a European Tour card and his game has taken off from there. More recently, Frittelli took home the hardware at the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open, just six months after winning the Lyoness Open. Now a two-time European Tour winner, he's receiving a bit of love, cracking this week's field on an unrestricted sponsor's invite (joining Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Sam Burns, and Bernd Wiesberger in that same category). There is no doubting his talent but this will be just his third career PGA TOUR start, first in a non-major and first on a course that is set up by the PGA TOUR. Gamers should consider him a high-upside, medium-risk option in all formats this week.

Louis Oosthuizen will make his PGA TOUR season debut at this week's Honda Classic.

The South African headed back to his home after last season, posting a pair of top 10s in Africa before bruising his fingers at the airport, forcing him to back out of the Joburg Open in early December. He's yet to find his form since returning, posting a T49 at the Singapore Open and a missed cut at the Dubai Desert Classic. While he appears to be out of the woods with the bruised fingers, gamers should tread lightly. This event has been a hotbed for WDs from Oosthuizen. He withdrew during his final round in the 2011 and 2012 editions (citing illnesses) and also withdrew prior to the start of the event in 2014 and 2015 (back/2014; neck/2015). On the bright side, Oosthuizen completed all four rounds at PGA National last year and that resulted in a T21 finish.

World No. 58 Cameron Smith back-pedaled with an even-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Genesis Open, falling three places into a three-way T6 on 8-under 276, four in arrears of overnight leader and champion Bubba Watson, who shot 69.

After opening in 72-68-65, the Aussie began T3, two back. Playing out of the final threesome with Watson and Patrick Cantlay, he hit eight (of 14) fairways but only five greens in regulation, losing 1.094 strokes around-the-green and 1.053 tee-to-green. The 24-year-old circled three birdies at holes 5, 11 and 17, cancelled by three bogeys at 3, 13 and 15. He recorded 1.600 putts per GIR and 1.435 SG: Putting with 23 total putts. The Jacksonville, Florida, resident improves to 3-for-3 at the Genesis with T63/2016 and T28 last year, and is now 7-for-7 on the season with six top 25s and three top 10s.
