    Default Golf : The Masters

    Here's my preview,


    My BLOG Masters coverage preview

    might also back Freddie for a few quid at massive odds to trade out after day 2 when he gets tired.

    C'mon lads, any chance of some decent trading opportunities ?

    I think Tiger's price is too short at 6.2. The tournament he recently won didn't have many of the world's top 10 in it. He hasn't won the masters since 2005. The only thing to watch is if he has a half decent first round or two his price will contract a lot. Still a lay for me.

    Not sure who to back but Rory should go well again and Justin Rose is playing well.

    Think Rory's decent value at 7/1, rain should help him
    If you can't be honest when you are wrong, you've less chance of being right next time

    Lefty for me.

    He is the model of consistency at Augusta (Made 18 cuts from 19 starts, 9 top 10 finishes since 2001) and so with Woods & Co making the market, you can have 14.0 which is fair.

    9/2 to be top American with E/W terms of 1/4 1-2-3-4 looks a bet to nothing too.

    Be lucky

    I know bugger all about golf but I've always done well off body language.

    Rory - he seems comfortable in himself and his motivation will be high. The way he bounced back from his blow up last year was immense. He is very mature and handles the fame very well. Would love to see him do this.

    Tiger - yes he had a win last week but how's his form been over the last three years? Also what toll have the off field issues taken? He is not so young now either, he must be thinking about things more. Looks too short in a very competitive field and can be opposed.

    Lefty - GET ON! Simple as. Why is he double Tiger's price when he has such a good record here? What I love about Mickleson is he is always in it. Loves to come from behind if you'll pardon the expression. A fantastic exponent of peaking at the right time. Well worth backing inplay if you don't get on before. Or just top up.

    Jason Day - he is the big Racing Post tip and they are good on the golf.

    I always think with the golf it is best to just see what opportunities come up and take advantage.

    Top debutant market looks to offer a slice of value for me.

    Keegan Bradley is in form, hits it miles and is red hot to take top deb spot. The problem for me is will he putt well enough. Uses the belly prod very well but these greens are unique.
    The lay at 3 is attractive but it's hard to see who will take him on from the rest of the runners.
    Most of the debs will miss the cut and KB's low in that market so no cross market help there.

    So to have an early interest in this years Masters this is a bet Top Debutant.

    Keegan Bradley..................Lay @ 3.00
    Robert Garrigus..........................Back @15 Tote
    Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano …...Back @19 Coral
    Bryden Macpherson....................Back @ 67 tote

    Tiger woods, best golfer of all time, cannot hit a fade. How is this possible, by the way get on him now, absolute certainty. (I'm not backing him or having any bet at the moment, might try to trade later on.

    When will I ever learn ?

    Golf trading strategy 101.

    Back Bubba Watson until 3rd round, then get the hell outa there, as soon as the panic appears on is face, get outta Dodge.

    Also, delighted to see Westwood flying again, nice guy, love to see him win.

    It's like the Bismarck here. Jason Day's been more like John Daly. I know Mickleson likes to come from behind but Phil your leaving yourself a lot to do old son.

    Still got Rory on side here.

    As I am a wise old owl and Freddie is now 32.0 from 270.0 I will spout my wisdom and tell you how much I've made.

    Nothing, yep, nothing, I didn't even put the minimum stake on him, do as I say, not as I do.

    Last round and sitting down to watch it. Is Mickelson underpriced @ 2.76.

    Might just watch and enjoy it as not really sure, still seems skinny to me.

    Lefty was 30-40 during Saturday's round, as usual the market revolved around 'Names' going into today. Take away his mare at the Par 3 and he would have collected.

    I went in at 14 and got out at 2.72, with peanuts to collect from an E/W play.

    My two ball treble of Westwood, Watson & Mickelson netted a nice payout, now it's time to watch the playoff

    Just Traded it looking at the massive overreactions in the markets.

    Kept the max stake to €20 and netted €17 (Peanuts I know) but it is the first time I noticed the opportunities available after a birdie (lay low) or bogey (back high). The important thing I had to keep fighting was the temptation to stay in the trade.Kinda like tennis in slow motion.

    If I had left the trades run I would have been up €70 on Bubba, but I'm not so unhappy. I stopped trading after the 16th so one could argue I messed up, but at least I behaved myself.

    I wondered how 'live' the pictures were, as the Beeb were dead set on fitting interviews and so on into their coverage. Most shots were re-runs, so in-running would have been a risky business.

    The win market was all over the shop during the play off - Louis was 1.6 even after his second to the Par 4 tenth. 2.4 Bubba was crying out to be backed, but (As for the above reason(s)), the question was "How far behind real time is this?".

    Laying the fav at the start of each day would actually have paid off, as Woods, McIlroy, McIlroy again and then Mickelson bit the dust.

    Pictures were nowhere near live, watching the markets proved it. Too many players to cover and too much going on at the same time.

    Knew if a player played a decent shot or putt often 20 seconds before it was shown. Bring on The Ope, properly live on the Beeb. Sky coverage was cringeworthy, I hate Monty even more now.

    I guess what happens with tiger woods is that whatever controversy is happened to him because of that his performance is slightly on lower side which make the way for most of the golfers to prove themselves,Like the 2013 master's winner Adam Scott.Hope the craze for Tiger woods would be still there.
