Well its crunch time and here is my betting slip for the 2011 US Open. If you have read my US Open 2011 Betting Tips post you wont be surprised to see I’ve gone with Hunter Mahan at 23/1. I just cant get that 62 he shot at Congressional out of my head.
The best odds I could get for KJ Choi, the 2007 winner of the AT&T at Congressional were 34/1.
I’m going with the “players that have a new caddy always do well” theory with Adam Scott who is borrowing Stevie Williams for the week.
Brandt Snedeker won at The Heritage, top tenned twice in US Open’s and has played great at Congressional in the past.
I just think the odds on Sergio at 61/1 and Ernie at 76/1 are just too long. I will probably lay them on betfair so there’s no real gamble there.
Camilo Villegas is a shock, to even me. I got a sneaky email that said he had turned his game around somewhat, and the guy was right, he tied third last week; that’s the only reason I’m on board with spiderman.
Alex and Shane are bets purely out of personal interest. Alex Noren has the best blog of any Tour player, its a great insight into the behind the scenes of a players life. Shane Lowry is a fellow Irishman and hugely talented player. Both have massive character and I’ll have my fingers and toes crossed for them!
