Rory McIlroy: Not sure who is steaming Rory, or what Vegas is so afraid of, but 10-1 is clearly a ridiculous line. I think Rory is the best talent to come on the Pro golf scene since Sergio, but this price assumes he is right now around the second best golfer in the world. While, he is leading the Race to Dubai, I think that is a stretch.
Robert Karlsson: Taking golfers coming off injury is not something I want to do. Especially considering Karlsson was Europe’s leading player last season and is in his upper 30’s. 40-1 could be a decent number, but I’m not willing to take that risk, with this player.
Alexander Noren: There is no more fooling around on Alex for now, 33-1 is just too steep a price. Alex’s great ball striking week, apparently turned more heads than just mine.
Ben Curtis: When Curtis is the closest to being an actual play, I think that means its a pass. Curtis is down on the European Race to Dubai standings, so he should have some incentive to play well, but there is something that is just a little off about this. Curtis should be one of the best players in the field, and 80-1 seems generous, but I think I will pass.
Alex Noren -130 v. Alvaro Quiros(1)
Noren is better, less well known and Quiros won this event last season.
Francesco Molinari -105 v. Justin Rose(1)
Again, I would say Molinari is a better player despite being much less known overall than Justin Rose.
Charl Schwartzel -130 v. Ross McGowan(1)
McGowan won easily last week, but overall Schwartzel has been much stronger and has more upside.
