Luke Donald to steal Sports Personality of the Year betting?

Well, Luke Donald has really been on the periphery of the market betting for some time, but his capture last week of the European Money List title, which made him the first man ever to hold both the European and US PGA Money List titles at the same time, has raised a bit of interest in his Sports Personality of the Year betting. Luke Donald, pretty much from out nowhere has drifted into 14/1 with Victor Chandler for the end of year awards. Will he spring a surprise and take the honours? Well, we don’t think so and are not going to recommend him as a big top. Is he likely to get in the top three though? Well, that is more of a reasonable shout because he sure does deserve some recognition for his incredible season which has seen him win five times. So why won’t Luke Donald win Sports Personality of the Year? Because he hasn’t won a Golf Major.  If he had landed one this season, then he would be the fixed firm favourite without a shadow of a doubt. Do you give the honour to a man who hasn’t won a Major over a man who has this year?

That is the question, and therefore, it is why Rory McIlroy, who lifted the US Open Major this year is in front of him in the betting market. But even shorter than McIlroy in the Sports Personality of the Year betting market is another golfer Darren Clarke, who won the British Open. There really isn’t a lot of logic for Clarke being shorter than McIlroy, it is only because he has had a long career which he finally capped this year with a Major. So he is unlikely to win another, so that is why he will be lauded upon this year. Somewhat unfairly we think, because McIlroy, along with winning the US Open has performed so much better over the season than Clarke, who has barely registered anything apart from that Open triumph. But still heading the field is Cyclist Mark Cavendish, who is everyone’s hot tip to take the honours after his brilliant year and success in the Tour de France. Cavendish, who has honours galore already, looks most likely to cap the year off with the Sports Personality of the Year award.
