Sunday night was car crash TV for golf bet profits members as our two main pre Tournament picks Mickelson and Watney led going into the final round. Watney fell away and Mickelson in what is the most embarrassing collapse of his brilliant career threw it away at the 17th.
After a huge kick like that it’s great we have the Players at Sawgrass to focus on because this has been a very profitable week for the ratings over the years. Every hole is a challenge here on the Pete Dye designed Masterpiece in Florida. Everyone talks about the 17th and it is the signature hole and we will see the usual quota of balls in the water but the truth is every hole is a classic here. The players never get a chance to relax here as rough sand and water are lurking everywhere.
The World number one Tiger Woods is no great fan of this place and has a poor recent record. He described it as novelty target golf after missing the cut and another time was mysteriously injured Rory style after a bad start to the final round. Against that Woods has recorded some of the best putting stats in golf history this year and if he gets going on these treacherous greens they will all sit up and take note. Rory has not played here much and doesn’t look comfortable at all out here. Mickelson will struggle to get last Sunday’s horror show out of his head and lacks the discipline off the tee to figure here.
The ideal quality here is accuracy because if you start going offline the course will have you for breakfast and throw in a spot of lunch too. We have strong selections this week, players who have all the attributes needed to tame this monster. It’s a great week to get involved and there will be hours and hours of live coverage from the course so theres no reason to not sign up.
I look forward to seeing you on the fairways and not in the rough and watch out there are Alligators everywhere this week.
Back next Tuesday.
