    The open 2014 'golf' thread

    Possibly my favourite sporting event to watch on the tv.Starts thursday and finishes sunday.

    Nowhere in the world would you get uninterrupted live golf from 9 in the morning till 8 at night over 4 days in beautiful HD.Try watching the uspga on sky and its adverts every 10 mins.

    The favourite is about 12/1 and this year it is wide open and you cant even write off someone who is 200/1.

    Adam scott (14/1)t he current world number 1 has a great chance after coming close in the past,whilst i like the look of danny willett (125/1).

    Have a look at the list of players in the link below and if you put a couple of quid on a name that sticks out you will get a good run for your money.

    What are your thoughts ,Who do you fancy and maybe you have a bit of inside knowledge.

    Hope the weather plays nice, Saturday's weather looks wet!

    At the moment Betfred are paying out each way on the top 8. So if your intending to have bet now might be a good time.

    Cant see him winning it again this year to tell you the truth? ive also had jason day and rickie fowler.

    if you can use it for an each way i'd probably go for Martin Kaymer at around 25/1.
    if it's only for the win then Adam Scott because his middle name is Derek X) ...& he's ranked the No.1 player in the world at the mo

    Good Luck to everyone having a punt I'm on Big Phil, Henrik Stenson & Scotty

    Game On !!
