    US Open - Golf


    0 Not allowed!
    Lost in all the soccerball chat, t'is the US open this weekend.

    Not really my thing, but today I did hear a big shout for Bubba Watson, 16/1 or 15/8 top 10.

    Apparently the width of the greens, being 'humpbacks' in design, and the complete lack of trees close in to the fairways, is ideal for a lofty player, who can move the ball in the air.

    That, I was lead to believe is Watson's MO.

      Personally I think Watson is a bit too emotional to be able to win back to back majors but I can't help but like a guy who hits it so far and has never had a lesson. In the era of sports science and psychotherapy, I love the guy for just mashing it (if you search my posts around about Ryder cup time, I'm sure you find some contrasting views)

      Webb Simpson for me. 45-1 with Paddy (e/w top 6). Finished high up last week, previous winner of the tournament and the course is one he has played hundreds of times. I've had my biggest golf bet for a long time on him.

      Bismark is Garcia. Someone on the radio described him as a 'major winner in waiting' Yeah right. He is 0/62 in majors but more importantly has been Top 10 18 times. In other words, I don't think he has the bottle for it on back 9 Sunday. See also Dustin Johnson and Matt Kuchar.

      Betfred have been offering a quarter the odds for the first SEVEN today. Great value.

      I've gone for Jordan Spieth (25/1) and Webb Simpson (45/1).

      It would be so great if Garcia could actually nail a major

      Short game has to be shit hot as the greens are tricky to hit so that rules Westwood out. I'm on Rory at 20/1 (placed months ago), McDowell, Louis Oosty, Jimmy Walker & Jimmynez. Looking forward to it.

      Garcia couldn't nail a picture hook, when he is in contention on the last day of a major his arse totally explodes.....Jordan Spieth looks like the new kid on the block, he is going to win majors for sure, this maybe to soon but 28/1 is great value. Also taken 50/1 on Martin Kaymer, bang back in form, former major winner in the US and former world number 1, who just lost his way for a couple of years.

      Jason Day @ 35/1 on Betfair for me.
      Just hope he's recovered completely from his recent wrist injury - they grow the rough long & thick at the U.S. Open.
