The Tiger rules the World after his win on Sunday in the Players and everyone except Garcia is congratulating him. The worst kept secret in golf is now out in public Sergio and the Tiger hate each other. With great understatement Sergio told Sky “Tiger isn’t exactly the nicest guy on Tour” and “at least I’m true to myself.”
This little spat could run and run and some crafty promoter will pair them together as soon as possible. I hope Sergio was chuckling to himself about how he was winding Tiger up as he hit it in the water three times in two holes to ruin his chances, I’m sure Woods was.
In truth it was a weekend of general embarrassment for the European challenge as Westwood dropped away tamely yet again in a big event and Mcilroy’s lack of practice caught up with him yet again. If he wants to challenge Woods, Mcilroy had better get his game sorted asap, he has the ability and the ego to take him on but he needs to focus because he was terrible this week.
The Bookmakers may well start going very short on Woods now because punters are beginning to see him as a cash machine again and when that happens they overreact and 8/1 starts to become 3/1 very quickly. At Golf Bet Profits it was a decent week week as Stenson our 66/1 shot got placed but at one stage on Saturday he led by two then got over aggressive and tried to go clear. If you do that at Sawgrass the course will kick you where it hurts but I’d rather we were on Stenson being positive than many of the other Europeans who gave up.
So to this week and we have the Byron Nelson in Texas and The Volvo World Matchplay from Bulgaria that golfing hotbed.
Poulter is fave with it being matchplay but at the moment is in a mess with his swing and is a no no for me this week. You can have all the fighting qualities in the World but you have to be able to hit it in a straight line and Poults swing has deserted him.
So a good mix of stroke play and matchplay to get our teeth into, there is a 150/1 shot in the Byron Nelson who the ratings suggest should be a 33/1 shot when that happens it’s time to get very excited indeed. Join up today and you will be on this bet as well as all the other top quality golf selections.
I look forward to seeing you on the fairways.
Back next Tuesday.
