With the British Open just over a week away and the Ryder Cup wagering coming around the corner the handicappers are working feverishly to make odds on golf tournaments. But even as good as the British Open golf wagering is, it simply can’t compare with the excitement of the Ryder Cup and the upcoming announcement of team members will be one of the biggest golf wagering announcements of the year.
Normally the selection of the US team is less exciting than odds on golf fans will find it this year. With the absence of Tiger Woods, the top spot on the US golf wagering team is up for grabs and every inclusion of a player will be critical as the US must be a full strength to get past a very tough European golf wagering squad. The Europeans always play strong in this type of golf wagering competition and world rankings on paper mean very little when the Europeans head into international odds on golf competitions.
In fact, the odds on golf makers almost all favor the Europeans despite the fact that the US will enter the golf wagering playing on its own turf. So far Stewart Cink is the leading points winner after Woods and will likely be the number one golfer for the American’s in the golf wagering unless Phil Mickelson goes on a binge and wins the British Open. But overall the points standings mean little to anyone other than the odds on golf handicappers.
Cink and Mickelson will be joined by the other top six points winners and the captain will have four choices when he settles the final golf wagering roster. Among the other all but guaranteed a spot in the golf wagering competition are Kenny Perry, Jim Furyk and Anthony Kim. The rest of the spots are up for grabs and will depend on how well the players do in the remaining golf wagering, but expect Woody Austin, Steve Sticker and Boo Weekly to be on the final golf wagering roster as well.
