Sunday night or was it just Monday Morning was Champagne time for Golf Bet Profits as Jason Dufner did the business for us landing the US PGA at a whopping 40/1!!
I told you last Tuesday to avoid the doomed gamble on the Tiger and to leave Mickelson well alone as well as the course would find the pair of them out despite their recent form. One internet preview said we were in for a great battle between the two of them for the final Major, oh dear.
As with any Major lets look at what we have learned this week that will help us for the rest of the year and beyond to keep racking up those profits.
1 – Jason Dufner is a class act, thats obvious you say he just won, but the manner he did it was top drawer, having to lead for three days, losing the lead to Furyk twice and regaining it and then on the last day showing how to hit wedges and short irons under immense pressure. We salute you Duffmeister this will not be your only Major victory and you didn’t even smile that much when you won either!!!
2 – Woods appears to have no plan B when playing the top events where the courses are set up for accuracy not just smashing it off the tee. I struggle to see him winning a Major again as the pressure is growing and though he will never admit it he can’t hack it anymore. The Bookmakers have had it right off this year with Woods in the four biggies so don’t think when they claim they hate him and he is the punters pal that they believe a word of it. Go for value next year and leave Woods well alone in the Majors he hasn’t beaten par on a weekend for over 14 rounds now!
3 – Big Phil Mickelson appears to have packed in for the year and who can blame him really after winning the British Open. As soon as it got tough here he appeared to lose interest and I would give him a wide berth in punting terms for the rest of the season. He will be very content with his lot at the moment and Mickelson is always worth backing when he has something to prove which won’t be until Augusta next April.
4 – Young Rory looks to be enjoying playing golf again which is highly promising and he may visit the winners rostrum before the seasons out. This was never going to be a course that suited him but he knuckled down and played with a smile on his face.
5 – Worksops finest Lee Westwood should sack Twitter off if his antics on Sunday night are anything to go by. Westwood is a very wealthy man and if challenged resorts to telling the World that fact which also makes him look a bit sad. I don’t know the man but know people that do and they constantly sing his praises however he looked no better than the trolls who he has it in for during his embarrassing ranting.
6 – Remember the name Jonas Blixt the young Swede who plies his trade on the US PGA Tour was superb all week and kept attacking when much bigger and more experienced players were wilting. With this performance under his belt greatness awaits for a guy who has every shot in the book and an ice cold temperament to go with it.
7 – To challenge the best players in the World you don’t need to make golf courses longer, you need to make them harder with thick rough, well placed pins and quick greens. Despite all their flashy equipment many modern players seem all at sea when challenged with these fairly basic requirements.
This week we have strong selections for the Wyndham Championship, a Tournament that has very strong trends in its own right. Join us as we push on from last week those who did for the PGA were rewarded with over 120 points clear profit on the tournament. I look forward to seeing you on the fairways.
Back next Tuesday.
