This golf betting tip comes from the Omega European Masters and the 1st Round Mythical 2 ball between SY.Noh and Miguel Angel Jimenez.
I am very keen to bet against Jimenez this week despite the fact he is the defending champion.
That happened 12 months ago when the Spaniard was in fine form. Right now his golf game is poor.
Jimenez is an incredible 48 over par for his last 5 golf tournaments.
To be fair 4 of those were tough events including the US PGA and Bridgestone Invitational.
However the Czech Open was not and Jimenez struggled shooting 9 over par for 2 rounds.
Watching Jimenez that week it was clear what the problem was. He has completely lost his confidence with the putter missing a number of short putts.
On a golf course where putting is so important I don't see Jimenez contending this week.
I can't believe Stan James have made Noh the underdog to win this 2 ball.
The young Korean is a real talent and has been in excellent form over the summer.
Noh finished T30 in both the Open Championship and US Open and shot an excellent 69 on the final day of the US PGA Championship to finish T45.
Last week Noh played very well at Gleneagles to finish T15 and he also had a top 6 finish in Sweden recently.
Noh played great here last year finishing inside the top 4 and I expect him to be high up the leaderboard this week.
In summary we are backing a 19 year old super talent. Long off the tee and great ball striking, to beat a 47 year old in awful form with the yips. Now if that's not a value bet then I don't know what is.
