Its creeping up on us all right. Also probably my favorite major followed closely by the masters.
I agree with you that Tiger is the most likely winner whether i would want to back him at 6/1 is an entirely different question though. Saying that i wouldnt be a layer at that price either. To be honest i would prefer to back him on after friday or saturday at 3/1 if he was trailing by 2or3 shots and if he was leading i would let him win at whatever stupid odds he would be at that stage. Good luck with your bet though.
Adam Scott im not entirely convinced he is a good links golf player but you could hardly go wrong at 40/1. Francesco at 66/1 is value and im not sure Jacobson has the bottle for a major. Just my opinions though i would love your opinions on my selections.
My own bets (slate away
) havent any done yet but these are my most likely bets.
Darren Clarke 199/1 yes i know form at the moment is rubbish and it still looks like he is hungover from last years success but he has faired well at this course in the past and frankly 199/1 is ridiculous.
Sergio Garcia 47/1 Hard to think he would ever have as good a chance to win a major as when gifting harrington that major in Carnoustie. But if there is any major sergio will win i think it is the open. I think it requires golfers to think outside the box and play out of their comfort zone. Not my most confident bet but i think he is worth a punt at the price.
Matteo Mannassero 219/1 Very intelligent and almost reminds me of Seve. He is still young but is no long shot and few would be suprised to see him win a major or 2 or 3 in his time as a pro whether this will be the one im not sure but you could do worse at the price.
Last but not least. No laughing!!
Lee Westwood 14.5/1 What can you say/not say about this guy. He just deserves a major im not sure this will be set up entirely to suit but i fully expect him to be in the hunt on sunday just on pure class alone. Tremendously nice guy and exceptional Tee to Green stats. A few quid each way almost seems like a free bet.
Good luck with your selections. All my odds are taken from current betfair prices.
