Online Wagering on the Masters Golf Tournament Up Significantly

Published Monday, April 09, 2012 -

The Masters Golf Tournament in Florida recently has everybody wondering what happened to Tiger Woods. The bookies online and offline were giving the professional the favourite odds after Woods took the Arnold Palmer invitational a few weeks ago.

It seems as if the golfer couldn’t pull the rabbit out of the hat again at the Easter Sunday event in Augusta. His disappointing loss that left him at five under par and in the fortieth position is causing some fans to look again and wonder will Tiger ever get his mojo back to full power. US Masters Golf betting traffic for 2012 was above expectations, for some online bookies, the result of the big names like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy showing promise early on in the season. Golf is easy to wager on because the punt is based on the odds of a contender to win or wagering matchups between two golfers.

The payout odds are always substantial with the exception of Tiger Woods who has in years past, been occasionally listed in the minus category. The US Masters is an invitational tournament restricted to just 64 players but the course still produces some of the best golf seen anywhere during the course of the year, where very often a surprise player will emerge from the field and win.

It has happened once again with Bubba Watson surviving a bad shot with a miracle come back and taking the tournament with a certain devil may care approach that has earned him the green jacket this time. Self taught and without much fanfare the golfer picked his clubs well and played as he always does seemingly without a care in the world. One great example was when Watson showed his true self with raw emotion as he sunk a short putt on the tenth green to secure the title and his place in golfing history at the 2012 Masters. Tiger Woods and McIlroy are sure to be back playing at the US Open Golf Championship in June at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in California.
