Sunday night was agonisingly close to being one of our great nights at Golf Bet Profits as one of our pre Tournament selections Angel Cabrera was beaten in a play off by Adam Scott on the second extra hole. We were on Cabrera at a massive 125/1 and yes it was a good each way pay out to console everyone but it was horrific viewing.
What was particularly strange was that Adam Scott and well done to him through gritted teeth had blown last years Open with a display of Bottling rarely seen in golf. How we could have used a bit of that.
We move on and yet again I’ve demonstrated the power of the Golf Bet Profits ratings to outwit the Bookmakers. We will be landing a big pot soon and believe me it will be more fun being in on it than reading about it.
What did we learn from the Masters then, well, firstly despite Sky desperately wanting Tiger to be the winner of every Tournament he enters he is not the force of old despite the Committee not daring to throw him out on Sunday morning for a rules breach he still didn’t win.
Rory has no plan B and gives up if he can’t win, he cut a largely disinterested figure on Sunday and like the misery guts Garcia you wonder if they actually like playing golf.
Westwood, Donald and strangely Poulter looked very poor and clearly winning the Ryder cup has not given them any belief they can win Majors. And lastly unless Justin Rose learns to putt under pressure he cannot win a Major again from a guy who played so well to beat Mickelson in the Ryder Cup. Augusta this year will have left its mark on many, punters included.
This year I’ve been waiting for one player at a huge price in the RBS Heritage at Harbourtown links. The great news for my members is he is nearly double the price of what I was hoping for so we are going to get really stuck in. Far from being after the Lord Majors show we have two really good Tournaments this week as continental Europe stages its first event the Open de Espana.
If last weeks event has given you the golfing betting bug then sign up because we are in the middle of the season now and the form is settling down. There is no better sport to watch or bet on, I really do look forward to seeing you on the fairways.
Back next Tuesday,
