There is no tournament like the Masters and I think aside from the tradition it is the fact that we have such a long wait from the end of the PGA until this tournament

This year we have a host of the top players in good form including Tiger Woods - it should be a brilliant tournament and the cream usually rises to the top here

We are running a SuperBru comp and will confirm prizes in the week

Link: www.superbru.com/themasters/pool.php?p=11830063

Pool name: Goodforthegame

Pool code: papasham

And now my 1st bet

John Rahm win at 22/1 Sportingbet - made a promising debut last year and has improved since - I see he is shorter elsewhere so want to take the price now

Looks like I should have held back on my Rahm bet - as big as 28/1 at Betx

My other fancies are Rose 14/1 (some 16/1) and Bubba Watson 18/1

A couple of items for the superstitious punter :lol:
The last two winners of the Masters also won the Dubai Desert Classic - Willet in 2016 and Garcia in 2017. This years winner was Hao-tong Li.
Henley in his three appearances has gone 31/21/11/?

The most talented player I ever saw play live ( have seen Nicklaus,Player,Trevino - unfortunately not Tiger) was Bobby Cole. He was the youngest player to ever make the cut at the Masters in 1967 at 18 years - a record which stood for around 46 years. As he was an amateur it is probably why I have always taken an interest in the amateurs and now we can bet on top amateur :cheer:

From "The Crows Nest" a Texas Longhorn who has played the course around 10 times and was taken around by a fellow Longhorn - Spieth.

Top Am Ghim @ 33/10

(or if you can still bet at WSB 7/2 )

Geez,yeah tough to look past the favourites.
Top picks I probably think Spieth 10/1 and Mickelson 18/1.
Others I also wouldnt scoff at are DJ 11/1,Matsuyama 35/1,Rory 10/1 and Rose 14/1.

But those odds would just cut my total stake too much,so im looking for the surprise:

Casey - 22/1
Stenson - 40/1
Cantlay - 75/1
Berger - 90/1
Finau - 90/1
C'Bello - 100/1

That Henley option doesnt seem bad either,Vann. With that history, 175/1 looks generous.

Will look for some exotics tomorrow.

Not a lot from my point of view on the groups so will probably steal some of PW's when he posts :silly:
SA Group
Grace is not course suited, first time out for Frittelli and Immelman has probably only made one cut in his last 50 outings so a straight shoot out between Louis and Charles which makes the 7/4 and 11/4 attractive on what is virtually a match bet. My choice
Charles @ 11/4
German Group
Only two contenders Kaymer and Langer. Kaymer is carrying a wrist injury and may or may not start which means either a winning bet or funds returned - just the kind I like :woohoo:
Langer @ 16/10
Top Debutant
Rather a large group this and one I would normally avoid but, for me the Masters is all about approach to the green ie getting the ball in the right place on the green. Kizzire's stats on the tour this year are GIR 10th and Proximity to the Pin 27th - exactly what is required to succeed at the Masters.
Kizzire @ 17/2

So not much in the exotics that caught my fancy. Most of the value seems to be with players I'm already invested in.

Will follow Vann in the german group,as Langer could probably beat a healthy Kaymer at Augusta.

Top German Langer - 16/10

And then I just had some fun with players who didnt make my final picks,but could have a fast start.

First round leader:

Oosthuizen - 45/1
Aphibarnrat - 66/1
Perez - 100/1

Last of my tournament bets before we dabble in rounds. I think Spieth is just so course-suited that I have to take him
Win only
Spieth @ 10/1
Top 10
Poulter @ 5/1
DeChambeau @ 6/1 ( Hope his back holds up )
Henley @ 11/1

Added Poulter @75/1 for overall. Historically 15 players since 1932 have won a major coming off a win the previous weekend. That's 15 majors in 86 years, probably not great odds, but I'm doing it anyway...

Been waiting for The Masters for weeks, can't wait! Here in the UK some bookies such as SkyBet have been offering bonkers E/W terms, up to 10 places! This has made it quite enticing, I've had quite a few bets for the next few days, and I'm confident of breaking even at the very least.

Spieth 1.5 unit WIN 14/1 (all funded by a free bet)
Rose 0.75 units E/W 1-8 14/1
Mickleson 0.75 units E/W 1-10 16/1
Bubba 0.75 units E/W 1-10 20/1
Noren 1 units E/W 1-10 40/1 (Probably went in a little heavy on this after getting excited watching him in the matchplay last week)
Aphibarnrat 0.75 units E/W 1-10 80/1
Stanley 0.1 units E/W 1-8 250/1

A couple of top 10s for any of the top 4 will see me fund the bets, or a single place from the final three which would put me in profit. Had a good few weeks in rugby betting so thought I'd spend a bit more on golf this week seeing as it is The Masters!

Good luck all! Some similar selections across the forum, so let's hope Spieth brings it home with Rose, Bubba and Aphibarnrat not far behind...

SkyBet go 1/5 the odds for 10 places which I think is generous. Others are offering 5 or 6 places with 1/4 the odds but I always prefer taking the extra places with the expense of a smaller return, especially in such a competitive field where there could be plenty of tied finishes in and around the top 10.

That is just fantastic. I would take just one bet on the Masters on that basis. Spieth 14/1 at 1/5 for top 10 ie Spieth 28/10 for a top 10 place - To quote RB - Golden :lol:

Super Rugby Punters at The Masters
Odds from BetXchange in SA
Top 10
Jordan Spieth @ 9/10 7.25 units
Top 20

Finau,my man,what the hell did you do?!! :sick:
Actually dislocated his ankle and just popped it back... I wouldve been cripple for a month.
X-rays came back clean,but he'll have an MRI this morning. If that looks fine and the swelling is under control,he will play.
Ugh,how mad he must be at himself.

Rose misses top 10, Spieth Top 10 arrives (Thanks TML) but despite everyone but Noren finishing in the top 12 no joy for me and big Spieth in-running play loses -no idea what happened in that 2nd round

I also had some nervous moments as emptied my WSB account on Reed at 1/7 with 2 to play and very nearly regretted it

A great tournament to watch

Unbelievable from Spieth and got me thinking a bet I had written off yesterday had an outside chance, but not to be! Bubba top 10 a welcome return, shame about Rose who was stroke from top 10 as well. Down from my pre event selections but think I came out around even after going for a two ball treble at the start of play today with Spieth Matsuyama and Casey.

Such a great tournament to watch, fair play to Reed, holed so many clutch putts in that round. Thought he’d gone into the water half way through the back 9 which would have made it an even more thrilling finale!
