    New thread up for the Masters in the golf forum so it will be worth keeping the betting talk in a separate thread.

    Day (20's) and Dustin Johnson (22's) are the two front runners I fancy. Day has had a couple weeks off with his thumb injury but as far as I know it wasn't anything serious. Johnson for such a big hitter is one of the top ranked putters on tour which is obviously very important around Augusta.

    I've only placed two small bets on Betfair so far, waiting for the bookies to start offering more places first. Lynn has had a horrible year but 600.00 looked way to big, will lay him off if he starts ok.

    David Lynn @ 600.00
    Graham DeLaet at 99.00


    Would be great if people can keep us up to date when the bookies start to offer more places.

    In your spreadsheet is the third column from the right titled "Mark" your book?

    Right I have got on my Top end of the market done with

    Jason Day 23 win only
    Dustin Johnson 24 win only
    Zach Johnson 38 win and hope to do place

    Only ever won this once with Zach Johnson in 2007 but few ok places since too.

    Love this tournament aside from the betting. It really is the best tournament around

    No. The spreadsheet has nothing to do with me. The creator is Mike so I presume it is his book.

    Sorry, that's what I meant. Question was unclear but I got my answer :)

    Few of the longer odds golfers I'm looking at are McDowell, Dufner and Mahan all at 50s and Fowler at 80s.

    Will any bookies pay out on 6 places for the masters?

    Yes... and some go to 7 places. Odds will obviously shorten however.


  • Registered Users Posts: 546 ✭✭✭ Cjs21

    Usually all of the bookies in Ireland will go to 6 places.

    I remember when Celtic were open they used go to 7 places and some years they went to 8 as far as I remember.

    This year it's hard to look by Jason Day.

    He has been awesome every year he has played here, except for when he WD over his injury and you have to say he has been the best player on tour all year.

    Hard to say he's the best player this season, he's only played 3 events.

    He is definitely in with a very good chance, but so are 10 other players.

    It's just his overall golf through the 3 events that have been impressive

    His Driving accuracy has improved, the distance has always been long.

    His short game has come along but most of all his putting from 15 ft or less is after turning into one of the best, if not the best on tour. If you can drive straight and putt well then Augusta can be tamed.

    Have backed the following at various stages over the last 2 months

    Zach Johnson
    Leishman
    Mahan
    Choi
    Oosthuizen
    McDowell


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,317 ✭✭✭ Pepp1989

    I have money on Day, Stenson, Snedeker, Schwartzel, and McDowell. Had Cabrera last year. Great to have a few bob on someone who is involved on final day. Great buzz! Hoping Day is fit.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,745 ✭✭✭ diomed


    Graham Delaet 105.8
    Boo Weekley 761.6
    Jonas Blixt 430.3

    Last year it was Jason Day at 85s

    I expect Graham DeLaet to contend. He drives long, and his GIR is good.
    The OP picks well. :)

    5 e/w on each:

    Jason Day
    Henrik Stenson
    Bubba Watson
    Hunter Mahan

    Bit worried about backing Jason Day all of sudden.

    Apparently he is only been working on his short game.

    Fingers crossed he be ready 100% for Masters.

    Anyone know anything about Nick Watney? He hasn't played in a few weeks but he usually goes ok at Augusta.

    Good question.

    I have read last week he will make it. How true that is im not certain.

    He was a player I was certain would win major 4-5 years ago.

    Has the quality.

    If I hear or see anything I link it here and let you know.

    Added Sergio yesterday at 30/1. Just have a gut feeling more then anything. I think he could give this a right good go especially with Tiger out and Phil injury concerns.

    Edit:Just see he is leading in Huston. Not sure if I want him playing that well this week.

    Any idea if Dustin Johnson will withdraw?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,733 ✭✭✭ SnowDrifts

    He only withdrew the other day because he was having a mare. I think his caddie was quoted as saying Dustin's back was "stiff" or something.

    He will be at Augusta and has probably been practicing there today and will tomorrow as bad weather is forecast for Monday.
