Last week has to be filed under the so nearly column as Robert Rock our 125/1 shot finished 6th just one place outside the top 5 which would have ensured a big each way pay out. We had three selections in Dubai and they all finished inside the top 15.
Both Dubai and the Tournament in America turned into putting contests as with no wind at either venue the courses had no defence against the players.
Putting contests like this are not everyones cup of tea but it was unquestionably exciting to watch the return to greatness of Phil Mickelson who played four perfect rounds of golf.
It will be interesting to see if the great man can hold this form together, if he can look out everyone at The Masters in April because he will take some beating!
This week we have two Tournaments to get stuck into and a real poser for punters in the first one The Joburg Open. Charles Schwartzel starts a very short priced fave after doing two demolition jobs in his last two starts. Are we a layer or a player at that price? To misquote the bard slightly, whether tis nobler to back a player at short odds in a 165 runner field as he may suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or putt badly. OK that was more than slightly misquoting the bard but you get my drift, surely backing short in golf is the way to the poorhouse! Well my members will find out this morning which way we are going.
In America it’s the Pebble Beach pro am where players are joined by American sports stars you have never heard off and comedian Bill Murray will walk round talking nonsense to the crowd whilst the commentators howl with laughter as if it’s the funniest thing you have ever seen. It carries a punters warning as not only do the players get fed up with who they are stuck with but also the first three rounds are rotated over three courses then everyone comes back to Pebble Beach for Sunday. Pebble Beach the most visually stunning course in the world and worth putting up with Bill Murrays zany antics so watch with the sound down if you have to.
This week we are launching the Golf Bet Profits FB page where all things Golf will be debated and where I will throw in some nuggets of advice and answer any questions current and prospective members of the service have. I hope you can join us as it should be fun and there is always something to talk about before and during Tournaments.
We are the top betting service out there unquestionably so join us here in the full service and start benefiting from the power of my unique rating system which has been tying the Bookmakers in knots for over two years here on BetFan. We are aiming for this to be our biggest season yet.
Have a great golf betting week.
