If you were an offshore bookmaker, would you make him an odds-on favorite, or would you best prop would be that he doesn’t throw his back out during a tournament? Most sportsbooks seem to be leaning toward the latter. LL Cool J said “don’t call it a comeback;” Tiger has not only called it a comeback, but has called it that twice. He was slated to return to competition in October’s Safeway Open, but he pulled out three days after committing to play. Tiger Woods is now scheduled to appear at the Tiger Woods-hosted Hero World Challenge in December, which is a benefit for the Tiger Woods Foundation.
When you bet on golf at a sportsbook, you put your money on human beings, but there might come a day when golf robots like LDRIC (Launch Directional Robot Intelligence Circuitry) will have taken over the world’s courses in lieu of your Tiger Woods and your Jason Days. Of course, by then Skynet will most likely be online and humanity will have been replaced by machines, so there will probably not be a lot of golf betting going on. So what or who is LDRIC? A seven-foot tall, 600-pound, moveable robot which top club speed is designed to max out at 130 mph – but could go as high as 152 mph.
The golf betting odds of whoever participates in the upcoming Safeway Open have just received a blow. Fourteen-time major champion Tiger Woods hopes to play in the tournament that will open the 2016-17 PGA Tour season, and which will take place at the Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, California on October 13th-16th. Woods seems poised to make up for lost time. He hasn’t played a competitive round on the PGA Tour since August 2015 when he finished in a tie for 10th place in the Wyndham Championship, but now he has the Turkish Airlines Open, the Tiger Woods Foundation-run Hero World Challenge, and the Tiger Woods Invitational all lined up for the fall.
Thomas Pieters, Andy Sullivan, Lee Westwood, and Matthew Fitzpatrick are among the golf betting favorites to win the D+D Real Czech Masters European Tour golf tournament to be played from August 18th-21st, 2016. And no, despite of the association that the name might suggest, it has absolutely nothing to do with Dungeons or Dragons. So sad. Notwithstanding that, the third edition of this competition held at the Albatross Golf Club in Prague will undoubtedly provide an excellent opportunity to watch and bet on golf. Accordingly, here are the odds for the tournament:
No one would’ve bet on golf legend Phil Mickelson coming within one put of making history – and missing. No one in the history of modern majors has ever been able to shoot 62 at an open. That’s 156 years of history including 116 US Opens, 144 Open Championships, and 80 Masters. In fact no one in that tenure has been able to come as close as Mickelson did on Thursday at the Royal Troon in Ayrshire, Scotland. The 46-year old golfer played “one of the best rounds of his life” but ultimately admitted that he “felt like a higher power was working against him”. After re-watching the footage, those who bet on golf might just agree.
Fans who bet on golf are marking out all over the place because the 2016 U.S. Open Championship is set to start on June 16th. Golf betting favorites will gather from all corners of the world, as well as from different eras, including Open winners from the past ten years, winners of the Masters of the last decade, winners of the British Open of the last five years, and other categories. And let’s not forget either about golfers who had to qualify for the tournament.
For fans betting on golf, the calendar has been marked on June 13th when the US Open is scheduled to begin in Oakmont, PA. With still some qualifiers being played, the final list of participants is still not final, but that doesn’t keep us online betting fans from considering the current very early odds to win the prestigious tournament.
If you’re big on betting on golf you can’t wait until June 16th when the U.S. Open begins at Oakmont Country Club in Plum, Pennsylvania.
If you Bet on Golf and follow the PGA, the 2016 Master is the 1st Major Tournament and tees off on Thursday the 7th of April 2016 with the 1st two rounds on Thursday and Friday on ESPN TV, and continues through Sunday the 10th of April 2016 with the final two rounds on CBS TV.
The 2016 edition of The Masters is going to tee off on April 7th in Augusta, GA and if you are betting on golf we a preview of what to expect, and who to pick to win the coveted green jacket. Jordan Spieth, the defending champion comes back to try to win the tournament two years in a row, for the first time since Tiger Woods did it in 2001 and 2002. He is one of the front-runners and favorites by the average offshore bookmaker and a favorite in the fans eyes, but for him to repeat he will have to beat some of the toughest competition in the world.
