Golf | Lining your pockets
Tiger Woods settled another score at Sawgrass at the weekend putting gobby Sergio Garcia in his place.
Spaniard Garcia’s 76 left him outside the top five and, from being in contention to win £1.2 million, he collected under £200,000.
But golf punters shut up Paddy Paddy too as 12 players returned cold, hard, cash to customers’ pockets and online accounts.
Paddy was paying the first six places in pre-tournament for the seventh time this year. So while Tiger Woods won by two shots, another six tied for shared joint second and third in golf’s fifth major which demonstrated the value of golf betting with Paddy Power.
So if you punted Kevin Streelman (tipped up by blog columnist Lawrence Donegan), Jeff Maggert, David Lingmerth, Martin Laird, Henrik Stenson or Ryan Palmer with Paddy – then well done you. They brought home the each-way money.
And if you’ve been missing out on the best golf betting in the business – pay attention…
- Paddy Power has equalled or beaten Ladbrokes in 80 per cent and William Hill 75 per cent of the time in markets so far this year. Neither has offered a single extra place this season.
- Paddy Power’s Money-Back Specials are returned in cold, hard cash unlike some of our competitors.
What about Paddy’s Money-Back Special if your player birdied the 18th? If you backed Jeff Maggert, Rory Sabbatini, Jason Day, Chris Stroud and Louis Oosthuizen with anyone other than Paddy Power you’ve only yourself to blame if feeling like a Leicester fan right about now. All five delivered with the flat stick to bring up the dirty dozen of players who made you money.
The US Tour swings on to the Byron Nelson Championship on Thursday while the European Tour stages the Volvo World Match Play Championship in Bulgaria. Paddy will give you Money Back in the Volvo World Match Play Championship if your player leads through 12 and fails to win.
