Events should not be allowed to be named after certain sponsors. While performing a very under appreciated role in society, a golf event should not have the words Waste Management Phoenix Open. We do not know whether golf or college bowl games started this trend but please do away with it immediately. That being said, it does attract the stars and with them come juicy props and futures. Join us at Apex Golf Betting as we sift through all the names to see what we can unearth for your potential profit.
Rory Cranking Up Professional Goals
There was a movie called Talladega Nights in which the star said “If you ain’t first you’re last!” This cult comedy had a hero whom you could root for and now the PGA seems to have its brightest star adopting this mantra. Before Tiger, golfers who won twice in a calendar year were lauded. Now Rory McIlroy comes along and laments that finishing in the top ten is not good enough. He expresses clear disappointment that he does not take down the title each and every time he finishes an event. Only Stal, Wilson, and Stenson have overcome him in this recent six month stretch in which he has won everything else. Rory used to be more easy going and laid back. This new go for the throat mindset will help him in his attempts to dominate 2015.
If Not For Rory We Would Certainly Know…
Not only dominating golf but also being the best golfer under thirty has taken much of the spotlight away from Branden Grace. Who is he? Grace has six Euro titles and is certainly off of the radar in the States. He is second only to Rory for tour event wins in the under thirty crowd. Look for big things in the USA majors for him in 2015.
Such an equal field that no one person to win it is under +1350. This is balance and you can afford to take multiple shots and still come away with hefty profit. For our money, we selected.
- Hunter Mahan +3500
- Matt Kuchar + 2200
- Bubba Watson +1350
Bubba was interesting because he had the lowest price. We also liked Jordan but felt that +1450 rang in too close to Watson. With our nod going slightly to Bubba, we felt we could not take both and retain profitability. Two long shots that have good value round out our field. So stay tuned to the Golf Channel and be prepared to react for those Round 2, 3, and 4 individual matchups to make up your futures if they are not panning out. Good fortune and we will see you next week at Apex Golf Betting.
