    I did a bet today in the American golf. It was 10/3 for a tiger/dustin or bubba Watson win. Bubba didn't enter because of illness. What's the story there? Is it just tough sh1t?

    It should be at the enhanced odds of the two coupled but would depend on the company involved.
    I could name a couple that wouldn't change it.
    Check the Racing Post and see what the prices were for the 2 with the firm involved and just couple them to get the correct odds.

    Say nothing and hope they pay out at 100/30 if one of the two wins.

    Don't think you have fully understood the bet, he originally had three selections and it was priced at 100/30 - one was a non-runner so he only has two runners, in theory he should be getting a bigger price.

    OP, have no idea mate, I suspect the initial bet was some sort of special promo so it will really be up to the individual bookies T&C'S.

    Tiger is lookin good aswell for you, well in contention having played the harder of the two courses.

    Yeah, went in to them today and spoke to one of the lads in the shop. He said ill get better odds, he just didn't know what price I'd get though.

    Tiger is buzzin.

    Go and look at what odds the company were offering in the Racing Post on the Wednesday or Thursday before it started.
    That will be the yardstick.
