I though last weeks US Open was a bit of a let down, not because I lost money but because the top three were disappointing. They all won three tournaments back and flopped ever since, which is alarming from a betting perspective as I am hoping golf isn’t becoming an unpredictable sport.
On to this weeks action and Rickie Fowler heads the market as the favourite but I will be given him a miss and will trade golf’s “Mr Steady” Jim Furyk.
I may well lay* a player in running.
Jim has been off for six months with a wrist injury and played pretty well in last weeks US Open. I think he will do well and a top 10 finish would be my bet here if I was a traditional golfing betting man at 9/4 as a lot of top players are absent this week!
But I prefer the added safety of trading.
I have three bets below which translate to breaking even if he goes to 16/1 in running and a 1 point profit no matter who wins if he hits 3/1 in running. If you find this a bit of a head scratcher feel free to PM me on Facebook or Twitter and I will explain it further.
