Eh, I bet you'd get better odds on him winning the US Open this year.

i really dont get into it too much until augusta. bayhill/doral/bluemonster dont really do it for me. augusta seems like opening day, while the prior events seem like spring training.

Who would you put as the favorite at Augusta? He's playing really well right now and can handle that course as well as anyone else.

And I know you love Phil, but don't say Phil. I don't think you can ever put him as a favorite because he can always self-destruct at the drop of a pin.

Tiger is the obvious choice at this point.

Also like Bradley, Dustin Johnson, Louis Oosthuizen and Schwartel. For some reason the South Africans do very well at Augusta.

in terms of long odds i like (in no particular order):

ZJ at 80/1
Simpson at 50/1
Day at 50/1
Watney at 40/1
Scott at 28/1

But I really do think Tiger's gonna win it.

What can you get for Mickelson? He is just as likely to win at Augusta as Tiger. But I am guessing the odds aren't worth it for either. Golf betting is a waste its a total crap shoot and you have to bet a lot to win.

I still think Tiger's a lock for the US Open this year.

Of the list above, Johnson is the best bet. Those odds surprise me, Adam Scott? Other than finishing second once, his results are terrible there.

Phil's 11/1, Tiger's 5/2.

I think you simply can't bet 5/2 on anyone at the start of the tournament. Even Tiger.

11-1 would intrigue me if I were a high roller. Phil has his game back and Augusta is tailor made for his game, even when he isn't on. It's a lefty's golf course and it doesn't punish wild big hitters who have great short games.

Bethpage. Back in the day it was 20 bucks for NYS residents.

Torrey Pines in another public course if you happen to be in San Diego.

Locally, I like Red Tail, Blackstone National and Shaker Hills.

Don't like Widow's Walk, not a masochist. My old man and his 9 handicap shot like 97 there and lost 2 sleeves of balls in the environmentally-friendly coastal swamps.

seconded. but go play in scotland first. st. andrews (for the history), carnoustie (to realize how punishing it really is), turnberry (for the vistas), and somewhere in the highlands (to find yourself at the edge of the world).

For the record, another must play NY state course is the spa course at Saratoga. Bring coppertone, because you will feel like you are at the beach. Gigantic traps surrounding many holes.

I've played all 8. I have a friend that lives in the village (which makes them a "member") and it makes getting out much easier. That said, it's nice to stay at the resort at least once.

It will also show you what a masochist Donald Ross was

you're missing out on all the old lady courses (1,3,5). too bad about the conditions on #8 but playing in nc in august is insanity.

Not a golfer but that place looks beautiful.

ireland is better for golf in my humble opinion. play waterville, lahinch, ballybunion, rcd, royal portrush and the island club.

Those are good picks but I don't think there is any way Scott is winning. Like the Day pick at those odds.
