I found myself whistling the ridiculously catchy tune of the song “I’m The King of the Swingers”, from that fab film ‘The Jungle Book’ through most of this last weekend. Couldn’t stop myself. Over and over again, a real ear worm.
Why? Because the King of the Swingers was one King Louie, the orangutan who ran the mob in the crumbling lost city…and yup, thanks to Weekly Golf Value, I was on Louis Oosthuizen who spent the majority of the USPGA up near top spot. If you have no idea of what I’m talking about, do yourself a favour. I’m telling you, I can’t get that darned song out of my head.
Anyway, Oosthuizen stayed close to the top of the leaderboard, without ever getting his nose in front, and WGV and I had to be content with a place return. With Abraham Ancer finding himself in the frame too – and sharing it with nine other golfers – it was a break even week for WGV.
The same for Golf Insider who got Paul Casey placed. For those who back the First Round leader and 3-ball bets in addition to those in the ‘Outright’ market, a decent profit was landed and very nearly a nice 50/1 winner on the opening day.
As for PGA Profit, they too had Ancer so a return there, but nothing elsewhere.
So, all in all, a very small loss on the week. We move on.
Now, altogether now one, two, three…”Oh oobee doo, I wanna be like you-o-o…”
