Padraig Harrington took the warm-up trophy home yesterday, but play was abandoned after a torrential downpour soaked Augusta, GA. The weather forecast tells a story that’s as difficult to read as one of those glass-like putting surfaces:
All of a sudden, the conditions come into play in a significant way. It’s got me slightly worried about my bets for the 2012 Masters Champion:
|Is the coveted Green Jacket waterproof?|
Luke Donald 14-1 3pts e/w with Paddy Power – win money back if Tiger triumphs and paying out place money on 1-2-3-4-5-6.
Worth pointing out that those two offers are exceptionally attractive - kudos to the respective firms' marketing departments.
To win – Tiger Woods at 6.4 3pts; Justin Rose at 36.07 2pts; Fred Couples at 240.88 ½ a point
I also layed the draw in the Sri Lanka vs England 2nd test with a 4pt stake at 4.3 on Betfair, giving a liability of £330. Sri Lanka’s under-par first innings total should be surpassed by England today and hopefully the irregular bounce on this pitch will mean we can take a few wickets and win. England are currently trading at 1.5 and I will be hoping to lay a decent amount of them at around 1.3 to eliminate some of that exposure....which will free up funds to get stuck into rounds 3 and 4 of the golf!
