I still bet on golf, I just don’t post up many golf tips anymore as because I am predominantly a layer, there wasn’t much interest as most people prefer to back; so I stopped.
However, I will post up some tips for the Majors only which will be mostly lay tips.
So as this is the first major of the year and my old “cash cow” Sergio is up at the top of the leaderboard again, I just have to take him on.
Before I go into why I think the Spaniard will not win today, let’s have a quick look at the leaderboard first:-
In Snooker Jimmy White is commonly known as the best player never to win the World Championship as he was the runner-up six times! Well Sergio Garcia is the golfing equivalent of arguable being the best player never to win a major.
Yes he is very talented, but I just find that he is way too emotional and those types of players can play amazing golf at times, but when things don’t go according to plan they can fold like a cheap suit!
The late Seve Ballesteros and America’s Phil Nicholson are erratic players too, but they just have that little bit extra to play themselves out of a trouble. Where as I feel that Sergio dwells on misfortune way too much rather than knuckling down and getting himself out of a hole.
Also, at the top of the leaderboard there are major winners in abundance in the likes of Justin Rose, Jordan Spieth and Adam Scott.
I predict that Sergio will play well and then the walls will come crashing down around “Amen Corner.”
So who is gonna win? Well that is a tough one with four player at 5/1 or under at the top of the betting and this looks like the most open final US Master round in years!
Jordan has a point to prove after he gifted the Masters to Danny Willett last year and Justin Rose is sitting pretty at the top. I for one won’t be backing anyone to win outright, instead I will laying my amigo.
