The 1st Major of the year is almost here. This is by far my favourite sporting event of the year and im looking forward to kicking back and watching it from Start to finish.

Personally, the way Woods is playing, he will take some stopping. He has played 4 stroke play comps this year and won 3 of them. He looks as good as I have seen him, apart from maybe 2000/2001.

Rory looks well off the pace at the moment and from memory, has only had 1 good round all year. The change of clubs seems to be really affecting him.

Justin Rose looks the best of the British at the moment. He has been driving well and finished the holes too. 4 events in the US and 3 top 10 finishes. McDowell has 3 top 10's from 5 goes too.

From the Americans, Woods apart, Snedeker and Kuchar are playing OK and Mickleson always has a chance.

I don't really have a bolter this year though. Maybe Keegan Bradley?

Also, dont forget to watch the par 3 comp on Wednesday. It's always fun and you get to see the 3 legends, Nicklaus, Palmer and Player, having a knock around. These guys would still beat the majority of scratch handicappers.

Odds:

Woods - 37/10 with Betfair
McIlroy - 11/1 with Betway. The rest see him at 7 or 8.
Mickleson - 12/1 with 32Red
Rose - 22/1 with Betfair
Schwarzel - 27/1 with Betfair

Others of note:

Bradley (my bolter) - 33/1 with Bet365 and others
Westwood -28/1 with Bet365 and others
Donald - 39/1 with 32Red
Poulter - 50/1 with Sportingbet
GMac - 66/1 with Coral

Ryo Ishikawa!!!! Remember me saying he was worth a bet a couple of years back and he was in it until the start of the 4th round?! You can get 400/1 on him with SkyBet :lol:

If you fancy a stupid bet, Ben Crenshaw is 10,000/1 with Skybet and Ian Woosnam is 2,500/1 with them too.

One last player I forgot to mention... Rickie Fowler! I'm putting something on him. He's on the verge of something. He is where McIlroy was 2 years ago IMO and has played great in patches this year so far. His odds are 50/1 with Bet365.

Sorry if im overloading everyone too, but just looking through the odds and I have noticed a couple of great odds!

Webb Simpson is 94/1 with Betfair and 66/1 elsewhere.
Richard Sterne (European Number 1) is 200/1 with Bet365 and SkyBet but I cant see him getting anywhere near.

 Ian Woosnam is 2,500/1 with them too.
 

 

I bet he stormed out of whichever room he was when he heard those odds.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Par 3 comp tonight on SS 1HD at 7pm.

They've been having somewhat of a mini heatwave this week. Last Thursday it was 11c. It's 29c today there. Thunderstorms to pass through tomorrow afternoon and rain Friday but still warm in The daytime.

I can't wait for it to start. THE best sporting even of the year.

Oh, I was just having a look around StubHub last night and 4 day badges are being sold for around $15,000!!

Today's practise round was pushing $2,000

Ted Potter Jr. won the Par 3 Contest at the Masters on Wednesday afternoon after a five-way playoff with Phil Mickelson, Nick Watney, Ernie Els and Matt Kuchar.

Potter beat Mickelson and Kuchar on the second playoff hole as Watney and Els didn't return to the course for the playoff.

They all finished at -4 in regular play. I think it's pretty safe to say the streak will continue :lol:

Out of the five players I've had a bet on they've all made the curator least. A couple are probably out of it though.

Right, so here we are with 1 round left. Snedeker will take some beating but Cabrerra has been there and done it before. Out of the pack I'd say Kuchar has a good chance and if I was to put money on anyone who isn't -7, it'd be him.

I'm not sure on Tiger. His puttings been off since midway through yesterday and I reckon he'll have to shoot a 68 to have a shot.

I still think -7 is too high for this course. Yesterday I said the leaders tonight would be at -5 and I wasn't far off. I'm saying tomorrow that -5/-6 will win it. It should be an exciting afternoon of golf though and I'm looking forward to it.
