N.Watney v T.Woods
View all Caddyshack's tips Â»
This golf betting tip comes from the US Masters and the Tournament match bet between Nick Watney and
What a price! I am backing Watney outright and you can read the reasons for that elsewhere on this site, but this
bet is an absolute must.
I can give you a number of stats, and I will, but here's the main one, this year Nick Watney is the world's best
golfer according to the data we have available to us, Woods is only just inside the top 100 at 93!
Number 1 versus number 93 in a straight match bet and number 1 is the outsider? My kind of odds.
Let's have a look at the different parts of their game and their years ranking on tour for that component and see if
we can find why Tiger is favourite.
Driving, where you might understandably think Tiger has an edge? No way; The combination of distance and
accuracy off the tee ranks Watney at #37 and Woods #193.
What about iron play? Greens in regulation; Watney #35 and Woods #57. So no, not there either.
Around the greens then, so important in the Masters? Scrambling; Watney #4 and Woods #54 and bunker play;
Watney #29 and Woods #129. Absolutely not.
Tiger is great on the greens though, isn't he? Not this year and especially not when compared to one of the best
putters in world golf! Putts per round; Watney #3 and Woods #86.
Tiger has won this tournament 4 times and WAS an absolute phenomenon, if you think he still is then please
refer to the above!
He may get back there, but not for a minute do I believe he can arrest his form slump and just turn it on this
weekend. In my opinion he is at least 6 months away from contesting a major again.
This is a standout bet, if even now you still want to back Woods then don't go to the bookies, contact me and I'll
beat Totesport's 1.73 no problem at all!
