I’ve heard on the grapevine (well actually Sean mailed me earlier ) that he has a bet on Tiger Woods in the 2009 Bridgestone Invitational. Here’s a quick shot of the leaderboard:
You can get the full leaderboard here. Tiger has won this competition 6 times in the last ten years so Sean might go further ahead with this bet. I looked at his price pre-tournament and at 2.74 he just doesn’t offer any value to me. Even if he does win, I just wont go for this bet before the tournament starts. It’s too short! Maybe if Tiger makes a big move today, I’d be prepared to have a punt at slightly smaller odds in the knowledge that he’s playing well and up there. Incidentely, this is the market that I’ve my two small secret bets on this week. I’ll report back on them later but they aren’t looking good at the minute. Again, these are only small losses for me and if these guys played well I’d have a chance to win big but for now it’s not looking great. Sean is in with a good shout with Tiger here though, his record on this course speaks for itself! I’ll be watching closely and might need to consider a bet if Tiger is pushing up the field. Tiger has actually birdied since I took my screenshot so it’s not looking good. Great to see Padraig Harrington heading up the field anyway!
