The US PGA Championship 2019
Bookmaker: Betfair Sportsbook/Paddy Power etc.
Stake: 4 of 5 units
Betfair/Paddy Power seems to have got their lines wrong here on a very tough golf course in New York. With average scores well above par in previous tournaments held here on The Bethpage Black Couse, a round of -2 (68) or better is not going to be easy by any means. In comparison, other bookies are at least half a shot higher, in some cases more.
Rumors has it that Tiger Woods took more than two weeks without touching a golf-club following his Masters win, trying to get his head around what he had just achieved.
He hasn’t played competitively since then, and that isn’t his favored approach to majorgolf, where he usually plays a tournament a couple of weeks before.
I also think that the hype about his level has gone a bit too far, and that he shouldn’t be as short as 11/1 in the winners market. At least the fireworks is more likely to happen as the week goes on.
The Unibet/888sport/LeoVegas/Mr. Green prize of 2,00 for Tiger to not break par in the first round should also be very playable or even the 3,00 for 71 or worse would be a solid value.
