It’s a classic which way do you jump scenario in this weeks USB Hong Kong Open as Rory Mcilroy tees it up and is as short as 11/4 to take this title on his way to the season ending Dubai World Championship in three weeks time.
On the plus side this isn’t a strong field and not a particularly difficult course. Rory is comfortably the number one player in the World and looks likely to be holding that role down for quite a while. It looks like this could be a turn up and win week and a chance for golf bettors to have a nice mid November cash in doesn’t it?
Well maybe but in the interest of balance we’ve heard the case for now lets hear the case against.
Rory is undoubtedly the best player in the World but he is far from the most motivated. I would be concerned about his comments the other day that he is tired and desperately needs time away from golf. You do wonder how some of these players would feel if they were working in a factory don’t you. This course, though fairly simple, is quite tight off the tee and if Rory is in smash it off the tee mode it could catch him out.
There you have it, the case for and against and at 11/4 are you a layer or a player or is it too close to call. At Golf Bet Profits my ratings point to one man this week and it isn’t Rory as having an outstanding chance of winning and he is a much bigger price. We came very close with Charli Wi at a 100/1 in America this week so be with us as we go in with a big bet this week.
I look forward to seeing you on the fairways.
Back next Tuesday.
