Rory McIlroy The Most Popular Tip In US PGA Championship 2011 Odds
Thursday 11 August 2011 at 10:58
The US PGA Championship 2011 gets underway today and Rory McIlroy is not only the favourite with the bookies to win this major but he is also the most popular tip on OLBG currently but Tiger Woods is also proving popular relative to his US PGA 2011 Odds and he could provide some good value.
Rory McIlroy The Most Tipped Player And Favourite
Rory McIlroy is the current favourite in an open looking US PGA Championships 2011 Odds and he can currently be backed at 11/1 with Paddy Power who are offering six places on each way bets for this major. Rory McIlroy is the top rated tip on OLBG at the moment having attracted almost 18% of the tips on this event and it looks as though his long drive should be well suited to Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek and one tipster who has gone for McIlroy to win has pointed to his record in majors as a reason to back him this week, SmoggyFever writes “His majors record is very impressive also, having placed inside the top 20 on no less than 7 occasions and of those, hitting the top 10 in five of those seven tournaments”. whilst Andymac1 is also confident, he writes “The Highlands course should suit McIlroy and he will not be alone in having to endure the roasting temperatures in Atlanta although the Bridgestone last week in Ohio will have been good for acclimatising as much as his T6 finish there will have proved that he is in good touch. We should see Rory challenging on Sunday and hopefully he can take his second Major of the year”.
Westwood, Woods And Stricker All Popular
Luke Donald and Lee Westwood are the current joint second favourites, both players are available at 14/1 with Coral, William Hill and Bet365. It is Lee Westwood who has attracted more tips so far out of the duo, Westwood has 9.4% of the tips whilst Luke Donald has 7.5%. Jaydubs is one of those tipsters supporting Westwood to win his first major. “Westwood has enough length and accuracy off the tee to be hitting these greens with his short irons and has the short game to get up and down”. Lee Westwood is only narrowly preferred to one returning golfer by a small margin, Tiger Woods is back on the golf course and many think he can win the US PGA. Woods is a big price at 25/1 with Bet365 and Paddy Power and that value has not been lost on OLBG tipsters, superslatts is one of the 8.5% of tipsters who have selected Woods to win and he says “If he can stay in contention throughout the first few days 25/1 will look very silly and a huge price. It could be a chance to get Woods at a price you may never see again.” Another big price golfer who has been well tipped up on OLBG is Steve Stricker who is the joint second tip tipped player alongside Lee Westwood, Stricker’s consistency makes him a solid each way bet with most punters, SmoggyFever has covered him each way writing “This guy is Mr Consistent and as a result has gotten his way up to 5th in the world rankings. He always seems to be there or thereabouts and sure enough, he's made 14 of 14 cuts this year, winning twice”. Stricker looks interesting at 28/1 with Boylesports and Paddy Power.
