Golf Betting Thread 2014 Season

Let's can the old thread and start afresh.








Have taken some of Casey in Abu Dhabi and Charlie Howell in the Humana.
Small e/w double on both as well.

Good luck to Elbows as well in your challenge, You're a long shot to finish that in profit in my experience of viewing these and my own experience of losing my load on golf. Prove me wrong, man.

Best of luck this year fellas.

It is very tough, I love golf more than any other sport, so many guys can potentially win each week. I thought that if I write it down it will show up what you are winning or losing and hopefully stop leaks, speculative bets (of which I have a few). Had some biggish scores in the past but generally only 2 a year so I want to see how this works out over a season. I love picking a few young players and following them. I remember backing Duval a lot and he couldn't win a tourney and suddenly he pops in 3 in a row.

My best betting memory was Lucas Glover for the US Open in Bethpage. I watching an inside the PGA Tour earlier that year and it said how Lucas has really improved his iron play and he was pretty much the best in total driving on the tour at that point. Was on him large (well large for me anyway) and thought nobody will have this guy. I ask my brother in law who has a bet in the majors and plays limited golf, who are you on and he says Lucas Glover and I thought how the fuck is he on him. He said Bob Bubka had tipped him on newstalk.

I've really tried in the past to take to McIlroy but never could and his performance here last year probably soured me at some level against him as a person lifetime (I wouldn't imagine this will bother him).

He arrived here on top of the golf world, his end to 2012 made him the dominant golfer with a stretch of stunning results stemming from his 2nd major success in the PGA Championships.

I'm not sure what kind of practice he had with the new clubs back then but there was an air of entitlement about him that was very off putting. He played like someone ranked 300+, he had lost 30 yards off his drive, putted like an 18 handicapper, yet after missing the cut went straight to Monaco and didn't practice for three weeks.

On the back of the fact he was using new clubs with the massive nike deal his level of indifference to where his game was at seemed astounding to me. It seemed he had decided that he was so talented he could just turn up when he felt like it and be successful. Who could of predicted the disaster of a year that was to follow, but there can be no doubt that he brought much of it on himself.

Over the last few months he's definitely re discovered the work ethic that needs to be in place to be at the top in golf. I watched his round this morning, he is driving it excellently and the rest of his clubs look close to peak as well. Whether he wins this week will come down to how he putts over the next three days, I've seen enough to form the opinion that he'll go very close and think the 7.8 available on betfair a is very fair price and I've taken it.

Whatever happens this week I feel he seems to have copped on, is showing a new maturity and employing a dedication that will stand him in good stead for the coming year.

Fairly certain Rory incurred a two shot post round penalty in this tournament in 2012 and was beat a shot in the end by Rock


edit; yep http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/gol...mpionship.html

costly penalty for me but Rory had every chance, putter and wedges just a tad cold, I'd of been sicker if I was on Phil - never fails to amaze

Billy Horshell is 70's on BF now.

Was he not leading after 2 round last year only to fall away at the weekend?

Stronger player now, looks a decent price.

I backed Phil thursday night at 50s, he was 100 Friday night. Also had a bet on him at 36 after the triple bogey. How the caddy can't zoom into the players minds when they go on mental trips like this is unreal. Also had Larrazable Friday night at 50s (not as much). Crazy that the first Sunday he doesn't choke in is the biggest tourney he's played in the last 12 months. His girlfriend didn't have to put up with the Sunday whine for once. It comes off an odd time where players go back to back (thank God for Bret this time last year) and Larrazabel is 60s with Betfair to repeat this wend. I find the first round leader great value for prices... especially for chokers like Cabrera Bello.

Fancy Sergio to have a good week.

Great course form and price has is favourable compared to last week where Rory took up much of the market.

I'm finding Garcia's price the last two weeks totally baffling, They had him same price as Stensen last week and Michelson was over double Garcia's price, It's not like he'd been hammering the practice having gone to Abu Dabi from attending a poker tournament (PCA in the Bahamas). This week you could make a tentative argument on course form, but again the same price as Stensen & twice the price of Duffner. I'm a big fan of Sergio in general but he has done nothing in the last 5 year to justify anywhere near the prices he's gone off these two weeks and in relation to the players mentioned.

Would say it is based on his play in the last couple of years.

He has got his game and especially his putting back.

Nice aftertiming though
