There have been some big changes at the Doral Resort in Miami, home of this week’s WGC-Cadillac Championship. The Blue Monster course has been redesigned by Gil Hanse and is longer and wider than the original. You would think that would lower scores, but perhaps it may not be as simple as that. Certainly, you’ll have to miscue to get a tee-shot into the rough but things could get more tricky thereafter, especially on the greens which are now huge and will no doubt be made more interesting by some innovative pin positions.
Nobody has played the Blue Monster better than Tiger Woods in recent years but the new layout means that everyone is starting again on a level playing field and one has to have doubts about Woods’ fitness after he was forced to walk off the course in the final round at the Honda Classic last week with back spasms. If an old problem has resurfaced, the defending WGC-Cadillac champion and seven-times winner might not want to risk a second tournament in quick succession with the Masters looming large on the horizon. Tiger is a 15/1 chance this year with Stan James for those willing to risk his wellbeing.
Rory McIlroy made a welcome return to form in the Honda Classic having only lost out in a four-way play-off. It’s a while since the Ulsterman won a PGA tournament and he’s very short at a general 15/2 in Miami but you only have to go as far back as August for the last time Adam Scott won in the US. The Masters champion looks ready to strike again after top 12 finishes in the Sony Open and Honda Classic and is 12/1 with most leading layers.
Justin Rose won the WGC-Cadillac Championship two years ago and the Englishman is 43/1 this time around with betfair while the likes of Jason Day (a general 22/1), Dustin Johnson (18/1 with Coral) and Matt Kuchar (33/1 with Betfred and Coral) arrive in decent form and should make their presence felt. Kuchar has three top-10 finishes in four starts in strokeplay this year and looks to have erased a few minor faults from his game but I like the look of the general 66/1 about Ryan Moore this week.
The year started well for the 31-year-old from Washington State with top-10 finishes in Hawaii and Arizona. He missed the cut in the Northern Trust Open and went out of the Accenture Matchplay in the second round to Kuchar but he has one of the hottest putters around at present and is accurate enough off the tee to put himself in prime position at the new-look Doral. He looks a cracking each-way bet and Boylesports will give you cashback if your selections finishes second to either Woods or McIlroy. Coral will also refund your stake if your man finishes second.

The PGA Tour gets back to stroke play this week after all the excitement of the WGC Accenture Match Play over the weekend. It is Honda Classic golf betting up for grabs this week as the Tour hits the east coast in Florida. The PGA National was the most difficult course of the season during 2013 and players are going to have find their form out of the gate early on this one. Chances may be at a premium but there is a high quality field in attendance, waiting to tame it.
Rory McIlroy is running as narrow 8/1 favourite in the field, and tees off as a previous winner back in 2010. He has been in great shape recently and looking like he can have a powerful season again. McIlroy heads to PGA National with five consecutive top 10’s in stroke play. So great form and at Even Money in the Top Ten Finish market, well worth a punt there.
Tiger Woods was a close second to McIlroy here in 2012, but his current form can’t stand up to that of McIlroy. Woods hasn’t seen himself in a top ten finish now in his last four starts. Nothing really to suggest that he’s going to turn that around here, but of course you can never count him out. He is up at Even Money in the Top Ten Finish Market, which just adds more weight really to backing McIlroy instead.
Online betting site Boylesports are running a Money Back Special surrounding the two big guns in the field. Back a selection in the outright market and if your player finishes second to Rory McIlroy or Tiger Woods then they will refund your lost stake as a free bet. New customers registering an account with the bookie can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus too.
All sorts of value through the deep field in this one, and given the mean nature of the course, would stick to Top Ten golf betting. Charl Schwartzel has performed consistently well at the tournament, with two top tens in his last two starts here. Took a top ten recently at Riviera as well to suggest that he’s in with a shout here. Graeme McDowell is in hot form with the putter and could make a charge as well this week, as he looks full of confidence.
Keegan Bradley, Sergio Garcia, Rickie Fowler, Adam Scott and even Lee Westwood could all make solid cases here as well. It’s a high quality field scrapping for scraps on a tough course. It adds up to it being a thrilling prospect for viewers and bettors over the weekend.
Online betting site Coral also are running a Money back Special for the Honda Classic betting. Get a pre-tournament bet down in the outright winner market and if you’re backed selection finished 2nd (to anyone) then you will get your lost stake refunded as a free bet up to the value of £25. New customers can get up to a free £50 bet as well when signing up with Coral.
2014 Honda Classic Golf Betting Odds
Rory McIlroy 8/1, Tiger Woods 9/1, Adam Scott 18/1, Charl Schwartzel 20/1, Sergio Garcia 22/1, Graeme McDowell 22/1, Phil Mickelson 25/1, Zach Johnson 25/1, Henrik Stenson 28/1, Keegan Bradley 30/1, Hideki Matsuyama 35/1, Rickie Fowler 35/1
Paddy Power are offering something a little different for Honda Classic betting as they are paying out to an extra place this week. The highly popular bookie are going with pay outs on the first six places for the tournament, so fantastic coverage if you are looking at each way bets this week. New customers can get up to a free £50 bet when registering with Paddy Power.

There is some great golf betting action to enjoy this week as the WGC Accenture Match Play Championship swings back into action. The one v one knockout tournament offers thrills and spills all the way and it takes a special mentality to be able to pull through this one. The unpredictability of the tournament makes for some fantastic betting options this week in the outright market.
It is a tough, tough market to call though because usual stroke play form can pretty much be thrown out of the window. That is why you are going to see exaggerated prices this week, and you are probably going to be looking at much better value around in Bracket Winner markets this week which should be a little easier to narrow down.
WGC Accenture Match Play Championship Odds at Paddy Power
Rory McIlroy 12/1, Dustin Johnson 18/1, Jason Day 20/1, Henrik Stenson 22/1, Hunter Mahan 25/1, Jordan Spieth 25/1, Sergio Garcia 25/1, Bubba Watson 28/1, Matt Kuchar 28/1, Ian Poulter 33/1
Better still is shooting for match betting throughout the tournament because there are so many match ups to come and far better value for less risk. Looking at some of the main protagonists in the field of 64, Rory McIlroy has been in great shape since last November and he finished runner up here back in 2012. Tough draw but carrying good form and outright tournament favourite this week at a price of 12/1.
McIlroy is favoured at 4/1 to win the Hogan Bracket ahead of Sergio Garcia 6/1, Ian Poulter 8/1, Charl Schwartzel 8/1, Jimmy Walkers 12/1, Bar 14./1
After a third place finish last season, Australia’s Jason Day is trading well, and winner on the PGA Tour last week, Dustin Johnson is also showing up well. Surprisingly Johnson to the semi finals here last season because he hadn’t ever shown up in the match play tournament before. Still, in tip top shape early in the new season and will have his backers. Henrik Stenson, the 2007 is in the mix as well, but his match play win didn’t come at The Ritz Carlton Golf Club at Dove Mountain. It’s a long course and so big hitters may come into play here.
Jason Day and Henrik Stenson are joint favourites in the Jones Bracket at odds of 4/1, with Webb Simpson 7/1, Steve Stricker 12/1, Brandt Snedeker 121, Bar 14/1
There are some good match play specialists like Ian Poulter, Luke Donald and Graeme McDowell to look out for as well, and they too will have their backers too through match betting.
In the Player bracket, Jordan Spieth is narrow favourite at 5/1, with Matt Kuchar and Justin Rose hot on his heels at 6/1, Luke Donald and Ryan Moore at 8/1, bar 12/1
At the head of the Snead bracket, Dustin Johnson is trading at 4/1 favourite, with Hunter Mahan and Bubba Watson at 6/1 just behind him.
There are a couple of great promotions around this week, starting with Paddy Power who are offering superb coverage. If your selection in match betting is leading through 12 holes, but then fails to win the match, then Paddy Power will refund your losing bet on that selection. That could prove to be some great insurance throughout the tournament and well worth taking a shot at.
Over at Boylesports, they have gone in a little bit of a different direction. Tensions are naturally going to be high and it takes quite a bit of mental steel to pull through in a one v one situation like this. It could be heartbreaking to see your backed match selection lose out on extra holes. Boylesports are offering a Money Back special on match bets if your player does lose in Extra holes.

The Omega Dubai Desert Classic golf betting will take centre stage this week as there is the big Rory McIlroy v Tiger Woods showdown. At least that is what the bookmakers are predicting, as the two big guns in the field are trading shortly priced at the head of the field.
To kick things off with, Rory McIlroy should have heavy backing here as every time he has contested this one, he has finished in the top ten. So punters will be expecting him to go well here and he has his game going pretty well at the moment, carding a T2 finish at the HSBC Golf Championship. He is also a past winner of the Omega Dubai desert Classic, taking the title back in 2009.
But Tiger Woods is out and he is looking for his third title at the event. Woods though had a tough time of things at the Farmers Insurance Open last week, a tournament which has has had a great affinity with in his career. He finished down in T80 after shooting a 79 in the third round. His last win at the Dubai Desert Classic was in 2008, following up on his 2006 victory.
So it is that duo who will be dominating the betting market this week and online betting site Boylesports have another great promotion running for your golf wagers. If your backed selection in the outright market finishes in second place to either Rory McIlroy or Tiger Woods at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, then you will get your lost stake refunded. New customers registering an accounts with online betting site Boylesports can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.
Pretty good coverage because there are other big threats in the field, with Henrik Stenson in particular looking to get back to winning ways. Also making up a strong line up is the likes of Thorbjorn Olesen, Thomas Bjorn, Branden Grace and Jamie Donaldson, along with 2012 winner Rafa Cabrera Bello.
2014 Omega Dubai Desert Classic Golf Betting Odds at Boylesports
Rory McIlroy 7/2, Tiger Woods 6/1, Henrik Stenson 9/1, Rafael Cabrera Bello 22/1, Thorbjorn Olesen 22/1, Joost LUiten 33/1, Peter Hanson 40/1, Thomas Bjorn 40/1, Branden Grace 40/1

The big golf betting action comes from the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship this week, as a host of world stars are out and looking for the title. It is Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy who is heading up the outright winner market as favourite, being priced at 11/2 with online betting site Paddy Power. This is a title which he hasn’t won before, but as he steps out onto the European Tour for the first time this year, he will be looking to continue some fine form from the back end of 2013.
The year was a difficult one overall for him, struggling to find form, but with back to back top six finishes on the Race To Dubai and then a win at the Australian Open, McIlroy looked to be back on the path to success. So can he take a big step forward and make a positive start to the new year out in the desert? Other big names in the field are Phil Mickelson, who is making a rare foray over onto the European Tour, in search of a nice fillip to get himself going for the new year, as he is hungry for more Majors.
Another star attraction will be Henrik Stenson, the man who topped both the US and European Money Lists last season. The calm and collected Swede was unstoppable over the second half of 2013 and he has history in Dubai, where he used to live. He will have heavy backing in Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship betting this week and other players trading near the top of the market are Luke Donald, Thomas Bjorn Sergio Garcia and former winner Kaymer. Germany’s Kaymer took the title in 2010 and 2010.
There is some coverage on your Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship golf betting this week thanks to Paddy Power. The bookmaker is paying out on the first 6 places at this week’s tournament, an offer they are putting up for the Humana Challenge on the PGA Tour this week as well.
Online betting site Boylesports also have a great promotion running for Abu Dhabi, where they will be hoping that favourite McIlroy doesn’t win. Back a player in the outright market with Boylesports, and if your selection comes home second to McIlroy, then the bookie will refund your lost stake for you.
2014 Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship Golf Betting Odds at Boylesports
Rory McIlroy 11/2, Henrik Stenson 15/2, Sergio Garcia 10/1, Martin Kaymer 16/1, Thomas Bjorn 22/1, Luke Donald 25/1, Joost Luiten 25/1, Jamie Donaldson 28/1

Is Rory McIlroy on the rise again? The Northern Ireland golf star is back out in action this week in the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge. This event (formerly known as the Chevron World Challenge) is hosted by Tiger Woods at the Sherwood Country Club and it is just a stroke play event for 18 players. The field includes the likes of Woods himself, Ian Poulter, Matt Kuchar and Lee Westwood to name but a few. It is a small, but fiercely competitive looking field. After winning the Australian Open recently by one stroke over Adam Scott, Rory McIlroy, who announced that he has been in a much better place since September, is running as one of the favourites.
McIlroy’s birdie putt on the 18th at the Australian Open under pressure will have been a big relief for him after the hard work he has been putting in, closing out with a fine 66. So will we see a duel between Woods and McIlroy? That would be a great treat for the event, which is to benefit the Tiger Woods Foundation. Woods of course has had a tremendous year, racking up the titles during 2013 and he has won his own event here five times before. The most recent title came back in 2011. It is Woods who is running as 5/2 favourite for the tournament at online betting site Paddy Power.
So Woods has favouritism, but at least there is some golf betting insurance which you can take on the outright market with Paddy Power. If Tiger Woods does happen to win the World Challenge again, then the bookmaker will refund losing outright bets placed on the player that ends up finishing second. This is a great offer and applies to all players who happen to tie for second and the maximum refund is £100. New customers can also get up to a free £50 bet as well from the bookmaker, who will match the value of your first stake with a bonus.
Northwestern Mutual World Challenge Outright Winner Odds at Paddy Power
Tiger Woods 5/2, Rory McIlroy 6/1, Graeme McDowell 12/1, Dustin Johnson 14/1, Ian Poulter 16/1, Steve Stricker 20/1, Webb Simpson 20/1, Jason Day 20/1
So a great clutch of players from high up in the Official World Golf Ranking. Graeme McDowell is the defending champion who is taking the tees this week, and he produced a great tournament last year finishing seventeen under. That was the Northern Ireland star’s second World Challenge title in the last three years after beating Tiger Woods to the punch in 2010. Naturally with his track record in the tournament, he is going to take some good backing for the weekend.
You have a great supporting cast to Woods, Mcilroy and McDowell in this one, with 2008 winner Jim Furyk in the field, with threats from anyone from Jordan Spieth, last year’s runner up Keegan Bradley and Jason Dufner. There should be some great action ahead and would seriously look towards the popular Place Market and Top 3 Finish options for your golf betting.

DP World Tour Championship Golf Betting Info
Dubai is the scene for the showcase event of the European PGA season. This is the finale of the season and it is the closest Race to Dubai since the contest started. Everything is going down to the wire with Henrik Stenson just holding off Justin Rose at the head of the race, but there are a total of nine players who can still end the season as European Number One. So now the season just boils down to the Jumeirah Golf Estates this week.
Latest DP World Tour Championship Golf Betting Prices at online bookmaker Paddy Power
Rory McIlroy 11/2, Justin Rose 7/1, Henrik Stenson 10/1, Ian Poulter 12/1, Martin Kaymer 18/1, Jamie Donaldson 25/1, Luke Donald 25/1, Bernd Wiesberger 28/1, Paul Casey 28/1, Graeme McDowell 28/1, Lee Westwood 28/1

Rory McIlroy isn’t going to finish the season as European Number One, but at least he has been showing a bit more of himself. His top ten finish at the WGC HSBC Champions recently on the back of a T27 at the BMW Masters has at least seen him trading well again. He is the defending champion of this event, after winning by two strokes last year over Justin Rose. Still a mixed bag of action from McIlroy, but at least he has been looking like he is heading in the right direction. But perhaps at the price he is here, not the greatest of value in an outright shot. Probably worth nothing more than a Place Market shot for Even money with Paddy Power.
DP World Tour Championship Golf Betting Tips:
Sweden’s Henrik Stenson is the man to catch still as he is leading the way and in a solid position after taking a share of seventh at the Turkish Airlines Open last week. Not bad for a man who has been struggling with a wrist injury. He is familiar with the Jumeirah Golf Estates so not going to be out of his depth here and if he gets enough rest on his wrist, you would expect him to handle the pressure well enough. Hasn’t faltered much when it has come to the big events. Worth a shot at Even money for a top ten finish this week with Paddy Power.
Justin Rose went well here last year, finishing just two strokes back of winner Rory McIlroy. So he will be well geared up and is one of the form players on the European Tour at the moment. Put big pressure on Stenson with a couple of great back to back performances during the Final Series on the Race To Dubai. The Englishman took fifth place at the WGC HSBC Champions and then a T3 are the Turkish Airlines last week. Can’t argue with his form and the way he tore up the event last year, he will take a lot of heavy backing this week. Hard to ignore in the field and a great 6/4 shot in the Place Market this week.
While nine players mathematically can still win the Race To Dubai, it is likely only going to be between the top four in the standings heading out into action this week. That is Stenson, Rose, Graeme McDowell and Ian Poulter. McDowell skipped the Turkish Airlines last week, and steps back out into action after a third at the WGC HSBC Champions, which left him third in the Race To Dubai. That third at the WGC HSBC was a big bounceback after a T53 at the BMW Masters. Perhaps the one of the leading four with the least amount of form.
Ian Poulter has come into his own recently, having produced some great golf and firing himself into contention. A second place finish at the WGC HSBC Champions and then a T5 at the Turkish Airlines has seen some great fight by him and when he has that swagger going, he could be hard to keep out of the mix. Bang in shape, bang in form and tremendous value at a price of Even Money with Paddy Power for a Top 10 Finish.
Plenty of other value around in the Top Ten Finish market this week for your golf betting, like Luke Donald who shared third in last year’s event. Martin Kaymer, Jamie Donaldson and Paul Casery are also trading well in the market.

There is some more big golf betting heading your way this week, with the continuation of the FedExCup Play Offs on the PGA Tour. It is off to the TPC Boston over the Labor Day weekend for Deutsche Bank Championship golf betting in the United States and the field is down to 100 after last week’s thrilling Barclay’s which was won by Australian Adam Scott. Scott had been sat in the clubhouse with the lead for a long time as he saw the challenges from the likes of Justin Rose and Tiger Woods just fall short.
It is Woods and Scott who are leading the way in favouritism for the Deutsche Bank Championship golf betting this week, with defending champion Rory McIlroy trending quite well as well, even after such a difficult season for the Northern Ireland star. There is still a tremendously packed and quality field to look over here for value and never forget the value of top ten betting and especially in-play betting too.
2013 Deutsche Bank Golf Betting Odds at Coral
Tiger Woods 7/1, Adam Scott 10/1, Phil Mickelson 14/1, Rory McIlroy 14/1, Justin Rose 18/1, Henrik STenson 25/1, Jason Day 25/1, Webb Simpson 25/1, Dustin Johnson 28/1, Matt Kuchar 28/1
While the top 100 left in the FedExCup play offs are duking it out over in Boston, on the European Tour there is action from the Wales Open to have a look at. This is at the famous Celtic Manor Course, where some of Europe’s top contenders not involved in the FedExCup play offs, will be vying for the prize and keeping themselves in the hunt for the Race To Dubai.
There is tremendous golf coverage on offer always at online betting site Coral. This is thanks to their Golf Guarantee.

This is the culmination of season long work for the players, with the top 125 of earners over the course of the year making it to the Barclays. This being the four event play off the numbers will gradually be trimmed down to the final thirty who make it to the Tour Championship. Twenty five players will drop after the Barclays, leading the top 100 moving on to the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Such a competitive field here, punters will have similarly difficulties picking out a winner as much as they do in a Major. Tiger Woods does head up the offerings for this week’s action though and he is looking for his third FedExCup title. With five PGA Tour titles under his belt across 2013, he is still going to be many people’s backing to go all the way and get the job done. He will be making something of a happy return to Liberty National as well because he was runner up here back in 2009. Scoring so heavily this season that he just can’t be counted out to take the FedExCup in which he heads to playoffs leading. Pretty short odds on Woods to take the win at the Barclays, and the course should play easier than it has done in recent times after changes. Just has to be better value for Place Market bet at 11/10 with Paddy Power.
PGA Barclays Golf Betting Tips:
Nothing easy about making a call for an outright winner this week thanks to the quality of the field. The pressure really is on to perform and to keep racking up the points. Would look for players trending well at the moment and that would naturally lead you to Henrik Stenson who has been in majestic form. In his last four starts, Stenson has fired off top five finishes in each, two second places. He just has the game to perform again and really has his eye him, quite how he hasn’t won is a miracle. Driving accuracy is right up there and work with the irons in sticking it on the greens is pretty much second to none at the moment. Importantly, his scrambling stats should also mean that he goes well at the Barclays. You would wonder why he hasn’t be able to win, and there is fantastic 7/4 value in a Top 10 finish at Paddy Power for him.
It is probably worth thinking who had shown up well in the Majors this year, just to get an indication of where you may want to go with your golf betting here. You can never overlook Adam Scott when it comes to the big occasions like this. After winning the Masters this year, he also took a share of third at The Open. Pile on top of that a share of fifth at the PGA Championship recently and he has to be value as well. Just his all round game is brilliant and usually such a solid bet and contender when it comes to the business side of things. His fellow Australian countryman Jason Day also went well at the PGA Championship, where he took his sixth top ten of the season. Has missed the cut in his last 21 outings now and landed a top fifteen finish at the 2009 Barclays. Both do show up as value for your 2013 Barclays golf betting.
So many big names around here. Matt Kuchar has been one of the best on Tour all season, landing seven top tens which includes a couple of wins as well. Many people are thinking that his consistency is going to lead him to take the FedExCup title at the end of the play offs. Also shaping up well should be Webb Simpson who has been getting better and better as the season has worn on. Carded a brilliant 63 at Sedgefield last week, where he just missed out on a top ten finish. At the 2009 Barclays he took a share of eighth after leading at the halfway stage. Won’t be phased by the track here. The confidence with which Jason Dufner, the US PGA Championship winner is playing with at the moment, will mean that he has a lot of backing heading into this one. His win at Oak Hill followed straight on from a share of fourth at Firestone and he is just swinging beautifully at the moment. As long as his bubble didn’t burst in winning that first Major, great Top Ten value in him at 5/2 with Paddy Power.
Another couple of names which have been showing up well in Barclays golf betting are those of Dustin Johnson and Jim Furyk. Johnson has been going well lately, taking a share of eighth at Oak Hill just a couple of weeks ago. But the stronger option could be Furyk who took a runner up spot at the PGA Championship to Dufner and that came on the back of top tens at the Canadian Open and WGC Bridgestone. With a top fifteen at the Liberty National back in 2009, makes a good fit and value at 4/1 for a Top Ten Finish.
