In no trouble now, but Wilson is annoying me.  Backed him to win 10k last week, when he missed the cut, not a penny this time round.  Beginning to think you should just follow them until they win, you can usually take some out to make them massive prices even when they lose.  Was just the same with Goya and Gonnet in the Avantha, big on both the previous time. 

eric, the only one of thelast eight you haven't mentioned in your last post is Kuchar.  Murphy's law?  Hope not, he's playing Mahan.
Report therhino February 25, 2012 2:27 AM GMT
Wilson and Rory safely through, lost Stricker but the green on him was free so no harm done. Not sure whether to take some out of Wilson but think he can beat Hanson. Also think Laird might topple Westwood, so tempted to add him. The coin flip match is Kuchar/Mahan, so could add both or leave both, but can't pick a winner in that match.

For the record, I think the boy wonder will win it from here.

Of the 8 left, 7 green and 1 red.

with Mahan, Hanson and Laird coming through makes it easy now. I have turned Rory and Westwood into small greens. Wilson and Kuchar medium greens with Hanson, Mahan and Laird still very nice wins. The only small red is Bae, never traded him and won't unless he makes the semi final.

Q, always had Kuchar green since the off, took some out before he played Kaymer, but still a green. It was almost the perfect day yesterday. I am tempted to leave my book as it is now, but I know I willtinker with it depending on Westwood and Mcilroy. I always thought Westwood would win this and the key for me will be if Mahan can beat Kuchar, because if he does his odds will crash as he will have an easier semi-final against hanson or wilson. I slightly lean towards Mahan but he will have to play well. Tempted to take everything out of Laird now, as he has to beat, westwood, Mcilroy then the final, a tough ask,but his odds show this!

totally agree rory has had an easy route and not scored well in his 3 rounds, but has not had to. But watching him yesterday his shots to the green were the best of anybody, he missed so many putts which does not bode well for the masters on similar greens!

Hanson, Mahan and Wilson have scored amazing well especially yesterday, all 5, 6, 7 under par! I do doubt Hanson alittle under pressure, out of those 3. Westwood and Laird played well yesterday and scored so should be a tough game far closer than the odds suggest!

I only jumped in from yesterday (Mahan 16/1) as this one can be a lottery early on until the players have got a few rounds under their belts.

There's no one to fear as such in this side of the draw and should Mahan beat Kuchar, I'd slightly prefer getting Hanson as a USA V Europe tie may well focus Mahan into getting rid of some of his Ryder Cup demons (same in the final if he gets there, unless Bae pulls off a shock and makes it)

However the big stumbling block for me is Westwood, who is playing the course magnificently - I'm hoping Laird or (probably) Rory can take care of him today. I wouldn't mind Rory in the final as he's been a bit sketchy this week

TV coverage for the QFs looks appalling though, not on air (5pm our time)until the matches are on the back 9, by which time som emay be as good as over

If I was starting from stratch now from the current odds, its Laird and Mahan I would be backing. They both played beautifully yesterday and both would have beaten westy and rory! Lets hope they can repeat it todayLove

rhino, what happened to Mahan in the Ryder cup will have changed Mahan and been one if not the hardest golf lesson he would ever have. A scar like that either makes or breaks you and definately would be a career defining moment. It will stay with Mahan for ever and either drive him on or haunt him, the pain of that interview afterwards was amazing TV, you could almost see his soul on live television. Those events are life changing, as I think you will see with Mahan! It will have made him mentally stronger something 2000 hours on the practice range could never do.

I'm well aware of what happened and his torment Eric, but like I say, already vindicated. He sank the match winning putt on the second to last day of PC after Jason Day had made a massive putt, then threw his putter down screaming like he just scored the game winning touchdown in the Superbowl. In that moment the monkey was off his back.

Ryder Cup is history, so let's move on as Hunter has.
Report Jack_Kray February 25, 2012 1:36 PM GMT
rhino - what eric says is correct about Mahan. Potentially playing 2 Europeans should he beat Kuchar, this time on home soil, should gee him up a touch. Although it's an individual event, and not a team one, you can be assured fans will be getting behind Mahan more than they usually do in such an event

The Ryder cup was gut-wrenching for him and if he sees a chance to get one up on a couple of Euro players, to say he will be 'up for it' would be an understatement

Look at recent events where players have risen above extreme disappointment and made a comeback to exorcise their demons - Kyle Stanley and Rory winning the US Open after throwing away the Masters - these things can and do lift players

All I am saying rhino are those moments you never move on from, they are with you for life, to either motivate or destroy you. Such events most people hide and bury them, the winners use them as motivation but they never leave you! You find out everything about a person from those sort of events, you get closer to seeing what they are made of than anything else.

I would add that at that interview Phil Mickelson was a man amoungst men. When Hunter broke down, Phil was the first to help, as I said an amazing interview.

Should he make the final against Westood or Rory - there will be a Ryder Cup atmosphere with the crowd going bananas U-S-A etc

Q, it all depends what you are looking for? What you are doing is guaranteeing a small profit and making sure you get somebody into the final? Thats fine, but for me I still like to back the value and as I posted previously, the two value bets are Laird and Mahan.

I love Hanson's approach to this event and his game, but I still have question marks to his nerve the deeper he goes into the event. Don't ask me why but I think Wilson may have enough just.

I am backing Mahan to beat Kuchar for lots of reasons previously stated.

Bae has been the suprise and it has to end somewhere and Rory is very close to playing some great golf.

Laird westwood is very close to call as both have shown some really solid golf. Although westwood is a favourite I do think the odds make me back Laird.

+1120 on Wilson for the tournament. Did a yankee in the last 16 which came knowhere, but still sitting pretty on Wilson. Not sure how to play this one now - Mahan has played well all week but not really been tested. Whoever wins their semi will be the outsider in the final. So if I back Mahan now at around 7/2 I will be able to make a profit come the final - or I could just lay off Wilson now and make a couple of hundred.

Also stand to win almost a grand if Chris Stroud wins the Mayakoba. I know nothing about Daniel Summerhays, but see he has won on the Nationwide Tour and has 4 runner up places as well. Obviously a talent.

Yes it's a tricky situation to be in for sure.

Thing is I really fancy Wilson to beat Mahan - he is such a steady player and always flies under the radar. He has more wins on tour than Hunter and has won 3 times in the last 2 years. For my mind Mahan does not handle the pressure well when in contention - lets face it he should have won many more times than he has.

Going to have to thing long and hard on this one.

As for the Mayakoba - well without any coverage it's been hard to guage who is playing well and who has been just lucky or unlucky. Looking at the leaderboard it would appear that Stroud and Summerhays have this between them as the the chasing pack hardly inspire - especially as the course is unlikely to offer up any better than a 65 on the last day.

Obvious call is to have a saver on Summerhays and perhaps a little on Allenby. Can't see any other result other than these 3.

out of the 4 left all are greens. I have positioned it with westwood and Rory medium greens
Wilson small green
Mahan big green

For me a Mahan Westwood final as the bookies predict. It is going to be fantastic viewing and I really love this event, its a great match play course.

That's most odd with Rory being layed at 50's.Some people have had a right result,while somebody has a had a bit of a shocker Confused

I underestimated Wilson the other,and I've seen nothing from him yet to make me think he can't beat Hunter today.
Westy and Rory is a toss of a coin.Whoevers putter is hotter will win.

+1120 on Wilson for the tournament. Did a yankee in the last 16 which came knowhere, but still sitting pretty on Wilson. Not sure how to play this one now - Mahan has played well all week but not really been tested. Whoever wins their semi will be the outsider in the final. So if I back Mahan now at around 7/2 I will be able to make a profit come the final - or I could just lay off Wilson now and make a couple of hundred.What would you do?Also stand to win almost a grand if Chris Stroud wins the Mayakoba. I know nothing about Daniel Summerhays, but see he has won on the Nationwide Tour and has 4 runner up places as well. Obviously a talent.


I would lay off and even greens on wilson and mahan and trade during the match to increase greens on both of them....without going into red....
