1st 4 bets are ante post the last 2 i added few days ago.
PATRICK REED 40/1
Winner at Barclays 2016 which was played at Bethpage where the course be this week held off Grillo and O’Hair then.This season been up and down for him but last few events played signs coming back to form did well in weekend of masters.
PATRICK CANTLAY 50/1
Has ideal game for here he does he got to the lead at masters on final day but then drop a shot a week later contended in heritage but was 3rd he is getting more comfy in majors now and everything in place for a bold run here.
FRANSESCO MOLINARI 40/1
At start of year not do great then come win in Arnold palmer and then went close in the masters held a 2shot lead before going into water.Since then a MC in heritage but can forgive him that.MC here in 2016 barclays but he much improved since then can act on any course now
ADAM SCOTT 66/1
Only played 7 events this year but done well he has 2nd at farmers insurance also with better luck on greens done better than 7th at Genesis open was 3rd in this major last year.4th in barclays in 2016 so no problem here.
And this aussie can go close.
SERGIO GARCIA 66/1
While it true in this major not got the best form in it but grounds that this week can change that was 2nd here in 2012 Barclays behind Watney and while last 6 majors MC in all of them coming back to a venue like this may be ideal for him
SUNGAE IM 150/1
While Cameron Champ was tempting at 300/1 he has come back from injury but MC last 3 events so instead gone for IM who while not battle hardend in majors he a serious talent acts on tough courses like Valspar when 4th.A maiden has won this title before every chance this guy
go well again
CAMERON CHAMP 300/1
When you think was around 50/1 for masters after win in sandersons farms he play well in RSM and ohl classic courses not suit his power.But then got a injury at players he MC last 3events but maybe a course like Bethpage be where find form.Way to big of a price he is.
Guys good luck i might do some top players bets but they be later in the weekMay 14, 2019 at 02:44 #1437087
John Rahm 20/1 (33/1 1st round leader market)
He’s emerged over that past couple of years as a future world No.1. He has a great game
with few if any weaknesses, but it’s his mental strength that’s going to get him across
the line more times than not. Definitely a player for the big occasions, as borne out by
his 4th in the Masters and T4 in the PGA last year, and his T9 at the Masters this year.
He couldn’t go into this in better form having played 11 tournaments this year with 7 top
10 finishes. He comes here off the back of a win last time out in the Zurich Classic and
I can’t see him not being in the top half dozen at the very least. He’s a stone wall e/w
at 20s, and my idea of the winner.
Rickie Fowler 22/1 (33/1 1st round leader market)
Forest Gump’s analogy on life as being like a box of chocolates, “you never know what
you’re gonna get”, fits nicely with Fowler. Without doubt he has the game to win anywhere,
as in fact he did at the Pheonix Open a couple of months back. He did however try his
best to throw it away, as he has done on several occasions, with a poor final round
which included a double and a triple bogey, before steadying the ship with a couple of
late birdies. He’s capable of taking any course apart, and I think 33/1 in the 1st round
betting looks generous. If he’s still there on the final day, I hope he starts a couple
behind the leader, he’s fallen too many times for my liking when it looks like it’s his
to lose before they tee off for the final 18.
Sergio garcia 50/1 (55/1 1st round leader market)
This is a bit of a monster of a course, and a lot of decent players are going to be made
to look very average. There are few that have good records round here, Woods and Michelson
are 2, but the third, Garcia, is the only player in the field to have 3 top 10s on the 3
times he’s teed it up here. He finished 4th and T10 in the 2 Opens held here, but he also
finished T3 when the Northern trust was run here back in 2012. He’s the horses for courses
player in the field, and with top 5s in his last 2 starts he shouldn’t be 50/1.
Lucus Glover 125/1 (100/1 1st round leader market)
It may be 10 years back, but Glover won the US Open here in 2009 and I’m hoping that he
might take some confidence from that and outrun his huge odds. He’s not exactly out of
form to justify those odds, with 7 top 20s and 3 top 10s out of 11 tournaments this year,
but admittedly it is a fair time since he won anything (2011). He’s had his problems with
injuries, he has a dicky knee, but he has been working on his swing and putting and changed
both (hopefully for the better). I reckon he’s worth taking a chance at those odds.
Good luck Darren and Raymo, and I hope we’ll have a few who aren’t in our weekly golf
thread, but who have a stab at the Majors. Best of luck allMay 15, 2019 at 06:53 #1437709

I think this looks particularly tricky but have bet six to try and give me an interest come Sunday
B KOEPKA 10/1
Pretty short for me but on majors form has to be in!
R FOWLER at 20/1
One day he will win a major. I just hope that if he is there come Sunday he aint in the final twoball!
J HARDING 200/1
Have backed him a few times and this lad looks like he has a major in him
J KOKRAK 100/1
Has improved this year and looks in good nick and seven of the last ten winners of this were first time major winners
J DAHMEN 175/1
In cracking form and looks abig price to me.
J T POSTON 300/1
Another one I have backed a couple of times this year ( heritage and Desert Classic). My main worry with himis he missed cut at Quail Hollow and that seems to be a guide for this place but hey ho at that price I will take a chance
Good Luck GuysMay 15, 2019 at 18:50 #1438028

All £1 Win, absolutely clueless about golf but always like to play the Majors.
Tony Finau (35/1)
Patrick Cantlay (45/1)
Marc Leishman (80/1)
Kyle Stanley (200/1)May 16, 2019 at 11:01 #1438210
Sorry to hear that MOM
SUNGAE IM 8/1 Top asian other bet had toMay 16, 2019 at 15:47 #1438264
I was swithering about adding my old pal Francesco Molinari before the off,
he’s done me well in the past. He’s not started too well and at 2 over in his outward 9, he
drifted to 50/1 and I couldn’t resist having a little nibble at that as he’s they type of
player who will keep his head and has the game to get back involved. It’s hugely unlikely,
but he was on offer at 80/1 in the 1st round betting, and just in case he goes on a run on
the back 9, I’ve had a little on at that tooMay 16, 2019 at 18:47 #1438361
Koepka goes round in a near perfect 63. Delighted with that. Four shots clear before the last group go out. We know he lives majors and handles the pressure, he’s playing well and the course suits. I think there’s a small bit of value in the 2/1 on the exchange right now. I’d say he goes wire to wire here and wins.
Topped up my 10/1 Koepka with a 6 point win bet at 2/1.
I now have 10 of my 26 points Bet in the tournament on him.May 16, 2019 at 20:20 #1438403
I’ve rounded my team up to 6 now as I’ve taken Cameron Smith. He birdied the
4th but looks like dropping one at the 5th. For some reason Skybet have him at 300/1 when
he’s generally 125/1. he’s a player I’ve raved about at times, and sometimes he’s looked world
class and at others like he’s playing with someone else’s clubs. I was more lured in with the
price to be honest, but he could give me a run for my money at those oddsMay 17, 2019 at 05:50 #1438764
Of my 6, 4 of them are in the top 5 in the betting.
I had a similar situation in the tournament the week after the masters this year (forget its name) and it ended badly. Long way to go yet but I’m hopeful of a decent profit here. A Koepka win would be delightful. DJ, Fowler and Day in there for me too though. And I’d never rule out a big weekend from Kuchar to squeeze into the top 10 as he so often does.
The only one of mine I can rule out is Garcia who was awful today. A course specialist but it just didn’t click for him today.
Good luck for tomorrow’s rounds and the weekend. Hopefully we can find the winner between us.May 17, 2019 at 13:21 #1438848
Plenty in here that have got off to a flyer, unfortunately for me I’m one of the few that
wasn’t signed up to the Koepka club
That was some round, it was just one of those where the Golfing Gods were with him. His general
play was excellent, but it was those monster putts, that would have been just as good putts had
they gone an inch either side of the hole, that gave him that superb score on a tough course. If
he can repeat that, and roll them in from there again, I’ll start believing he can walk on water.
He’s 6/4, but to be honest I’m surprised he’s not even money. I think he’s going to be hard to peg
back now, even though there’s 3 rounds to go. He’s not a guy you expect to collapse.
That’s a bit of a nap hand you have there MOM, good luck with them
I could have done without Fowler starting with a double bogey, although as I said in my original
bit, he’s prone to it. He fell just 1 shot shy of the 1st round e/w money at 33s. Rahm isn’t too
far back at level to still make a move. Molinari, who’s normally very steady, was uncharacteristically
up and down the whole round. He needs to find his A game from 2 over if he’s to have any chance, and
as has already been said Garcia had a bit of a mare.
They are under way again, and Koepka has even more on the field now as Danny Lee is 2 over after 4,
leaving Koepka 3 clear. I’d be amazed if there aren’t many in here who come out of this one with a
healthy profit. Best of luck chapsMay 17, 2019 at 15:31 #1438854
BigG for me so far it look like Cantlay be best hope he is
Also as well mate on Koepka i put him up last year at 22/1 for open championship could it be backed him for wrong major i hope not i might back him today for masters next year at 14/1 while Aaron Wise 150/1
