Key Points

  • This golf betting tip comes from the Ballantines Championship and the 3rd Round 3 Ball between Brett
    Rumford, Soren Kjeldsen and Miguel Angel Jimenez.
    Bookmakers seem to do this a lot in golf. They have priced Rumford up as the outsider to win this 3 ball despite
    having played the best golf over the first two days.
    Rumford shot a superb 63 on Friday to take a 3 shot lead into the weekend over Jimenez and Kjeldsen.
    Both of these players are rated as better golfers but that does not warrant making Rumford the 3.75 underdog.
    In fact when you take a look at their stats it is Rumford who has been the most consistent this season. He has
    a scoring average of 70.65 compared to Kjeldsen at 70.67 and Jimenez 71.35.
    If you include Friday's round then Rumford will be averaging even less.
    Rumford has one of the best short games on the European Tour and can get it around in a good score even
    when he is not on top of his game.
    He has been in good form finishing 22 - 17 - 22 - 20 in his last four tournaments. Rumford shot a final round of
    66 in China last week so confidence will have been good heading to Korea.
    Kjeldsen played very well last week to finish 2nd in China but being in contention takes a lot out of a golfer and
    it is a lot to ask for Kjeldsen to keep up his good play.
    Jimenez is the best of these three golfers but has made a slow start to the season and has yet to produce his
    best golf.
    The one stat which makes this bet really appealing is how each of these golfers have played in the third rounds
    of tournaments this season. Saturday is often regarded as moving day but some golfers struggle.
    Kjeldsen is averaging 72.14 in the 3rd Round of tournaments in 2011. Jimenez is even worse at 72.66 whilst
    Rumford clearly likes the weekend averaging 70.83.
    Whilst this stat does not mean a great deal it does highlight that Rumford is excellent value at odds of 3.75!
