    I am by no means a handicapper, but just a guy who has bet games for the better part of the last 8 years. Hardcore bettor? Sure. I probably bet golf 5-6 times a year given that I don't consider myself a golf "expert" by any means. I work in sports broadcasting, so sure, I know more than the average dude, but again, by no means an "expert" - especially with golf. However, put one unit on Rory last week after Thursday's round at 7/2. Made a nice little profit. Nothing special. Figured I'd give it a go again this week. Wednesday night, before round 1 at Doral, put 1 unit on Bubba at 50/1, 1 unit on Justin Rose at 50/1, 1 unit on Keegan Bradley at 33/1 and .5 units on Phil. Bubba and Rose, being my long-shots, found their way to the top of the leaderboard after Thursday's round, so I put another unit on Bubba at 40/1 and another on Rose at 30/1. Given the fact that through Friday, they are 1 &2, what's the smartest way to hedge this? My standard betting unit is $100, so if Bubba can keep his composure and close, I'm $9000 richer. Again, other than that I figured Doral sets up for long left handed golfers, I just took a shot in the dark on who I took (I liked Rose and Keegan because they've been consistent so far this year). Keegan, Rose, and Bubba are all top 5 right now, but the last thing I want to do is walk away from this weekend's tournament making nothing when I have a stable of golfers at the top of the leaderboard who were all longshots to win. Any suggestions? The last thing I need is Adam Scott pulling out a Sunday miracle and dicking me out of a few grand.

    hope you listened to me. I'd let it ride tomorrow unless you can hedge Hanson, Kuchar, or Johnson with your 3

  16. #16

    TPowell, who you like for tomorrow? I don't know much about Golf, but I think Keegan is a cool customer. Called it before his big win. Other than that, I am thinking Zach Johnson for tomorrow.

  17. #17

    I stayed put today. Thinking about $100 hedge on Hanson, Kuchar and Johnson, and then maybe putting like another $1500 on Bubba. Trying to milk this for all it's worth - right now, I'm sitting pretty regardless. Thoughts?

  18. #18

    another $1,500 on Bubba? Idk man, I would sit tight outside of the the little hedge action

    I wouldn't mess with Zach Johnson in the only matchup I saw. He was paired against Webb Simpson who was hot as hell today. I think Simpson is due for another really solid round like today.

  21. #21

    Is there ANYONE outside of Johnson and Kuchar you would hedge with?

  22. #22

    Ok...in addition to having Bubba $100 at 50/1, Rose $100 at 50/1, Keegan $50 at $33/1, I now have Kuchar $150 at 33/1, Johnson $150 at 40/1, and Hanson $150 at 28/1. Let's hope and pray no one outside the top 6 wins this thing...hopefully we'll be poppin' bottles at about 6:00 PM EST tomorrow. Thanks for the help!

  23. #23

    good call with Singh being a duck out of water, he shot 75 but unfortunately Simon Dyson didn't even break 80

    Makes sense because he switched shoes at the turn. He was playing awful though....

    Saturday, I took a little action on Golf. I had this premonition or thought really what it would feel like to suffer a bad beat on Golf, considering my reputation. USF and Ohio to name a few from just this week alone...

    Today, I liked Keegan a lot...and conversely did not like Bubba at all...So I dove in.

    Keegan had at least a three stroke lead on him all day. He bogeys 15, then 17 and double bogeys 18! He loses by 1 stroke.
