Even Buick’s close relationship and long time sponsorship wasn’t enough to get Tiger Woods in the golf betting odds at the Buick Open this year.
Woods’ knee ailments have been highly publicized and his absence from the golf betting odds, while expected, still left a major hole in the golf odds. Matter not; Kenny Perry outputted the rest of the golf betting field to take his second victory in four golf betting odds starts.
Perry has been quietly putting together one heck of a golf odds season so far and likely wrapped up a spot on the Rider Cup team as well with his latest golf odds win. And even though the biggest name in golf odds wasn’t a part of the action it still had plenty of excitement to keep golf betting odds fans locked in on the action. As improbable as it may have seemed to some golf odds fans, Perry hung on and watched his competitors’ blow chances at the golf odds wins and the victory practically fall in his lap by default.
Woody Austin actually had the golf odds tournament wrapped up. Up by two strokes he settled for a bogey on the 16th, needing only to par out the last two holes to claim the golf betting odds title. On the very next hole he sunk his golf odds hopes with a triple bogey and limped into the club house one stroke behind Perry. But that was hardly the end of the golf odds drama for Perry. He also watched on as Bubba Watson missed a 12-foot put that would have given he a piece of the golf odds lead. But it wasn’t meant to be and Perry was the golf betting odds champ with a closing round 67.
The win puts Perry in rare company as he joins Woods and Phil Mickelson as the only multiple golf odds tournament winners this year. In a parity riddled golf odds season it also should secure his selection to the Ryder Cup team which will take on Europe’s best later this summer. It also boosts his FedEx Cup points total and will certainly put him on the golf odds radar for this competition as well.
