It’s been a great year for Paddy Power customers so far, as our undeniably desperate attempts to be loved has reached outrageous new heights.
Our Extra Place Specials have come into effect 66 times over 26 tournaments so far this year and means that you have gotten £/€6,383.11 (to £/€5 e/w stakes) in your e-wallet with Paddy Power than backing the list of golfers (below) with any of our competitors.
Can we get some love now? Even a hug, we’re here pouring our heart out and feeling vulnerable.
These aren’t Mickey Mouse competitions either, we’re talking Extra Places from the Abu Dhabi Championship, through to Jordan Spieth’s US Masters and US Open triumphs to Jason’s Day win at the Barclays.
Our biggest odds so far though on an Extra Place? Well that happened when 500/1 shot Troy Merritt placed sixth at the Valspar Championship & Cameron Smith out-ran his odds at the US Open.
If you think that was just a fluke, much like Chris Smalling getting his model girlfriend, think again. Alex Prugh is our second highest odds shot on the special when he placed at 400/1 at the Farmers Insurance Open.
Alex finished tied fifth, but because we were the only unbelievably sound, cool, gorgeous and beautiful bookie paying six places, our customers got some extra hard cold cash in their pocket.
Much unlike our competitors who only paid dead heat on him. FOR SHAME.
