Been a pro for 4 years and has won every year at least once.

For me he is still improving and if he can become a bit stronger mentally come Sunday afternoon, he could easily win twice as many over the next 4 years.

Report bristoldoug September 15, 2011 9:07 AM BST
Thats a tricky one and is it really possible to back one golfer exclusively and make a profit? Even when Woods was in his prime and winning maybe 5 or 6 tournaments (don't have exact figures so may have been more) out of the 30 or so on the PGA tour every year he would have been 2 or 3/1 favorite every outing. So you could never have made a profit unless you backed him after 1 or 2 rounds when he had perhaps started badly (by his standards) and drifted out to treble thoses odds.
Look at Rory Mclroy and Luke Donald who inevitably are pre tournament favorites wherever they play at the moment. Mclroy is always around 10/1 or less and Donald around 14/1. So they would both have to win 3 times just to break even if you backed them every tournament.
So you are either looking to back someone unfashionable but who wins other year or so at 80/1 or better or someone up and coming who may win once or even twice a year but at relatively short odds of 25/1 or over.

Of the unfashionable brigade id pick KJ Choi or YE Yang whose odds rarely reflect their chance or talent. Of the up and comming brigade you have to go with Bradley or Stallings who have both won on tour this year and will most likely do so again. Both are generally available at generous odds - probably double that of someone like Ricky Fowler who has yet to win on tour.

luke donald always there or there abouts im sure if you backed him each way every week you would show a profit at the end of the season. As a bigger priced player it would have to be Thomas bjorn he has had yet another superb season winning three times and played superly in the open behind darren clarke

I think I'd go with Robert Karlsson. He's always available at a good price and I think he is a world beater on his day.
Report Knight Rider September 15, 2011 8:55 PM BST
Getting on a bit though WW.  He'll be 47 in 5 years' time.

It's an interesting question because you've got to pick someone who often goes through spells of doing nothing, but is capable of popping up with a win.  Sabbatini is not a bad shout.  I'd also throw in someone like Aaron Baddeley.

It's not quite the same as picking someone you think will do well over the next 5 years.  McIlroy will no doubt secure a few more wins but at what price?  He's not going to disappear off anyone's radar.  Even if you had picked him out 5 years ago as a future star, how much would you really have made off his career thus far?  The frustrating conundrum of golf betting.
Report Wicked Whisper September 15, 2011 9:18 PM BST
I thought of Baddeley, always a good player to back but I felt it was a cheap pick considering his recent performances deeming it not very original.

Ching two reasons, first thats the way I play and second, as KR points out if one person keeps popping up his odds would become unbackable, therefore a team of 6 and back the value in that six?

You have so say Mark Wilson seems to be a great shout over the last 3 years. I see no reason why Noren can not kick on to be a really top class player. I also think Kaymer will be dominent next year in Europe.

some good calls there, it can't be the name players like mcilroy, donald or westwood (and not just because of the paltry win ratios they have).
Dustin is defintely a runner, but you'll not make a fortune on him, but his price isn't as sticky as the three amigos above.
I also like Baddeley, Noren and Wilson (have a wee touch on him this week too), but I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned young Sean O'Hair.  He wins when he gets in contention and this year already has cantered in(maybe an exaggeration)at about 140/1 iirc.

Bubba Watson 3 wins and 30 top tens from his 150 events is a decent strike rate. In Europe I see no reason why Thomas Bjorn can't continue to win tournaments in a pretty weak tour. He is often overlooked by the bookies at the top end of the market.

If I was getting a free bet of this sort, I would think long and hard about it, long and hard. Let me think, .....ie see your angle TB...........

1. You need a player who is 'two players in one' ie Bowditch,Glover,Mickelson, Horschel, etc.
2. He cannot be 'popular or household' or you will end up trading at very restricted odds ie Matsuyama.
3. James Hahn. that's the one for me.

One day he wins and one day he doesn't and he is always 100/1 because most people have been 'caught on the rebound' with this guy.
