In a week where Master Cup betting headlines were dominated by the return of Tiger Woods, when the dust finally settled it was Phil Mickelson who grabbed the brightest spot light by grabbing his third win the Masters Cup odds action.
By defeating Woods and several other hard charging opponents on Sunday Mickelson carved out a place for himself in Masters betting history by joining the select few golfers in sports betting history that have at least three Green Jackets to their name.
Heading into the Master Cup betting action the big story was the return of Tiger Woods to competitive golf betting after his turbulent and self imposed exile from the PGA betting calendar. No one knew quite what to expect but Tiger was nearly as sharp as ever and actually came out the first day of the Masters Cup odds action and posted his best score for an opening round at Augusta, ever.
And he was followed that up with erratic golf, both good and bad, and was just three shots off the lead at the start of the final day of the Masters Cup betting. But after a rough start he simply couldn’t gain any ground on the golf betting leaders and he finished the Masters Cup betting three shots behind Mickelson.
Mickelson, long known for his meltdowns in Majors betting events seems to have finally shaken his reputation as choker and played the final day at Augusta as well as anyone in the history of golf wagering. His shot making was masterful and instead of merely going out there on Sunday and playing not to lose this Major betting event, he was aggressive and took the title by making terrific shot after shot.
His final score of -16 was one of the most impressive winning margins in Masters golf betting recent history and solidify Lefties stature as one of the best golfers of his generation.
