American's aren't allowed to use Betfair (Federal government has to protect them from these evil British inventions!!!)

 

20's biggest price American showing in oddschecker (Tiger) urm...... Don't really get this though, as last time I checked they were laying something like 11/8 on an American win on a 10% over round book. If they believe that an American win is really 11/8, and the biggest priced horse is 20/1, then there has to be some terrific value buried out the back.

 

I'd have said that Dufner must be half decent value at 80's for 6 places

Same thing with Paul Casey...dude hasn't even had a top 25 (on the PGA) this year has he? He's had some decent rounds and some great stretches of 4-5 holes, but no real results. Yet, I've seen a few different people saying things like "how about that Paul Casey!" Maybe he is just a likable player?

 

Fun to watch the Euro guys play this course...looks pretty tuff to me. I don't know much about links golf, but it seems exciting because scoring is so volatile. Anything can happen!

 HOW ABOUT THAT RORY MCILROY??!!

I have a feeling that Justin Rose is going to be a very common pick for next week.....and deservedly so. No one playing better this past month.

What does this mean 80's for 6 places? I know that Dufner is 80/1 to win on some sites.

80 to win (as you say) with each way terms down to sixth place

 

In this case it is a quarter of the odds (20/1) to finish in the top six, albeit placed as a conventional each way bet rather than place only it would be 10/1 your moiney with 50% of your stake having to go on the win component

 

I'm not so sure this isn't going to turn into a putt out myself. Much is made of the par 5's but if the course is playing more or less the same length as it was when the Open last went there we might be going to see one of those renewals where every one can hit the green in regulation and the best putter on the day wins aka Ben Curtis or Todd Hamilton

Out in 31 for Rose. No one catches him and he's not going to back up the way he's playing. You can start engraving the trophy now!

Well, last time the Open was held at Liverpool, the front page of the leaderboard for a large part of the weekend was Woods, DiMarco, Els, Cabrera, Furyk, Goosen, Garcia and Scott. In other words, good conditions at Liverpool means the stars come to the top. And I kinda think soft conditions with light winds benefit guys like McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Stenson, Scott, Cabrera and some of the favorites next week, especially Justin Rose who is red hot. If conditions get difficult, you get some of the underdogs that slip through the cracks.

 

I'll wait to hedge my bets until closer to the Championship when I see what the weather is like, but if the forecast stays the same, I"ll be looking at the favorites with maybe a few bucks on an underdog (like Cabrera or Casey). I'll also be looking at the under big-time on the final score. I think with good conditions, -15 or better could easily be the winning number.

Once again, and this is just my personal opinion, but I enjoyed the European Tour wayyyyyyy more than the PGA Tour this weekend. 

 

Congrats to Justin Rose for consecutive tournament wins.

You missed some great golf!

 

Unfortunately, I didn't see much of the Scottish Open......it was on too early, and I was golfing.   :-)

I watched equal amounts of both (even a bit of the Senior major), the golf being played on both tours was awesome, the other stuff (camera views, commentators, general production) was far better @ the Scottish Open.
