Gone for Mickelson at 22/1 and Watney at 100/1 in the end (both e/w, Lefty 6 places, Watney 7 places).
Probably poor picks, Mickelson obviously not a great driver of the ball, but with his scrambling ability, always has to be respected, 7 times in the last 17 years he's been in the top 4 places, 5 times 2nd, just fancy it could be his year and I like how he talked about the course in an interview, he doesn't sound negative about the first 6 holes like some others. Also seems to be excited about being drawn with Tiger, and also early Thursday starters might have a very slight advantage with the draw. Decent price I think at 22s.
Watney would be the jackpot for me. More of a hopeful punt, very out of form, but he's excited to be playing a course he liked to play on as a kid when he could, so I'm hoping he has decent knowledge of it and where is the best place to miss shots or whatever if you are going to miss, has had two weeks off and spent it at home, hopefully it helps and he was putting some work in on his game for this tournament, comes in under the radar which suits him, 25/1 for a top 7 place is what really made him a good bet for me. If he found some of the form he had early last year he'd have a chance for sure. Done him at 75/1 also e/w for 1st round leader.
Gave Donald, Furyk, Mahan and Stricker big consideration but will probably have a few bets in running. Can't wait for this tournament
