My cousin who also happens to be one of my best friends, invited me to Vegas this weekend to watch the Masters at the Winn. As tempting as that was, I had to stay here at HOG world headquarters. My cuz did just email me a bunch of betting info he got from the Winn sports book:

Tiger opened at 9:5 and has gone up to 11:5.

Phil is 7 to 1.
Ogilvy opened at 35/1 and is down to about 10/1 last I checked.
Sergio: 18/1
Vijay started 20/1, now 35/1

Bettors dark horses: Henrik Stenson started at 40/1, now 28/1; same thing with Camilo Villegas; Zach Johnson has gone from 50/1 to 30/1

The betting sheet has 50 top players, Tiger through Martin Kaymer, and then the field for all others. Mr. Field started at 50/1 and was 6/1 yesterday.

Will tiger win line bet: 220 yes, -260 no
Lowest completed round by anyone over/under 66.5
Hole in one? Yes 140, no -160
Tiger in top 2: 135/-155
Phil in top 8: -110 for yes, -110 for no. Weird, perhaps a typo.
Playoff? 270/-330
Total winning score over/under: 280.5
margin of victory: 1 shot 13/5, 2: 4/1, 3 5/1, 4+ 7/2, playoff: 5/2

Nick Faldo‘s hair is as greasy as ever. He needs some wardrobe help. He’s wearing floods and his shirt is way too tight for his not-so buff body.

Tim Clark aced the 9th hole to reach -5 for the par 3 contest at the Masters.

Greg Norman aced the 6th hole an turned to give his caddy a kiss. His caddy is Chris Evert.

The Big Three are playing together, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player.

Jack Nicklaus birdied the first two holes and nearly birdied the 3rd.

Bubba Watson‘s wife, and caddy, dumped two shots into a lake.

Ben Crenshaw can still putt.

John Merrick aced the 2nd hole.

Gary Player made a par on the 9th hole after hitting his tee shot in the water. An mulligan ACE!

Tiger Woods fields stupid press questions

I’m not sure what I’d ask Tiger Woods if I ever got to interview him.  I might just freeze up and pass out.

I’m watching the live interview of Tiger at Masters.org right now.  The questions were pretty good at first but the same stupid questions are popping up now.

Dumb press question 1: “Tiger are you confident going into this week?”

Tiger Woods: “Yes.”

Dumb press question 2: “Tiger do you expect to win?”

Tiger Woods: “Yes.”

…come on guys.  You need to ask the #1 player in the world, and arguably the best golfer EVER if he expects to win or if he’s confident?  That’s insane.

UPDATE: Now watching Geoff Ogilvy interview.  They’re asking him about Tiger.  Gag.
