Well, we didn’t have to wait long for another winner on the golf. Just a one week break from the winners enclosure in fact, as Daniel Berger landed the AT&T Pebble Beach tournie at 14/1 for PGA Profit last night. I’m losing count of how many winners each golf service has had this year, and it’s only the middle of February!
I do keep telling myself it can’t and won’t continue like this, and indeed the weekly summary from Weekly Golf Value pointed out that as far as that service is concerned the huge ROI is unsustainable and we should ready ourselves for some blank weeks. This was in fact, WGV’s first losing week of the year with only one golfer – Cameron Tringale – sharing 7th spot at odds of 40/1 providing a return.
One placed for Golf Insider too, Paul Casey finishing in the frame at 16s.
One thing I really do enjoy about betting on the golf (other the regular supply of winners so far) is I find it all tremendously relaxing to watch. Which sounds daft when you consider how tense it gets every time you see your man, chasing a win, readying himself to play his next shot. Somehow though, I can’t get too worked up in terms of nerves. Most of the courses are placed in glorious settings and sitting at home in the dark, with it cold and/or wet outside, seeing some sun and sea…it kinda lifts the spirits. Not as much as backing another winner does though, naturally.
