Found June 13, 2013 on The Sports Bank:
Tiger Woods and other PGA notables have packed their bags for a trip to the city of brotherly love for golf’s second major tournament of the year. The 2013 U.S. Open takes place in Merion Golf Club’s East Course, a course right outside of Philadelphia. Just like the Masters, let’s take a look at The Sports Bank’s five best bets to win the near $1.5 million prize this weekend. 5.) Tim Clark – No Major Championships Odds – 80/1 Lowdown – If you want to make bank on the U.S. Open, put it all on Clark to win. The South African finished tied for third at the 2005 Open and has made the cut in each of the last four years. The course will play to his strengths to make him one of the most popular darkhorse candidates. 4.) Tiger Woods – 14 time Major Champion (Three U.S. Open victories; 2000, 2002 and 2008) Odds – 4/1 (betting favorite) Lowdown – It would be downright easy to pick Woods to win straight up, but there comes a time when he has to stop being the  odds-on favorite. The 2008 U.S. ...

Tiger off his game - so what?

Tiger Woods used to win golf tournaments, even majors, with his B-game. He stopped admitting to such things once he realized that pronouncements like that really annoyed his fellow professionals. They were, after all, trying hard and only won when they were at their absolute best, and for most of them even that wasn't enough. But that doesn't mean Woods stopped beating...

Tiger Woods Surprised With Question From Neice During News Conference, Arranges Dinner Plans on Spot (Video)

If you’ve never been in a Tiger Woods news conference, it’s quite a scene. Woods is generally the only golfer who draws enough journalists to fill up the interview room under the press tent, and even then there are usually more throngs still standing in the back. Moreover, every reporter wants to get their question in, and only a small fraction get answered. So, it probably helps...

Garcia claims he left apology note for Tiger in U.S. Open locker

The day after Sergio Garcia sought out Tiger Woods on the Merion driving range to speak about the racially-stereotyped “fried chicken’’ comment he made last month, the Spaniard left a hand-written note of apology in Woods’ locker. “Yeah, I did leave him a note, a handwritten note,’’ said Garcia about the Dear Tiger letter on Tuesday. “Hopefully he can take a look...

The golf world has been rooting for Tiger Woods to return to his old habit of winning big tournaments, and sportsbooks are no different.

Follow the fun at tiny 13th hole at Merion

With the tease of an ace on each tee shot, golfers count down to the 13th hole. It's where the shortest hole at Merion Golf Club waits. And at the U.S. Open, that makes 13 the life of the 18-hole party, the off-campus bash down the block from the staid library. Playing in his second U.S. Open, unheralded Scott Langley and Morgan Hoffmann noticed they were turning into Tiger...

Angry Rant Friday

Will not be served at Merion this weekend. We are not ******* around today, people.  It is one of those days where we get everything off of our barrel chests.  It has been awhile since my normally mild-mannered and civilized self has done this but after watching a few hours of Chris Berman make sweaty, drunk, and gross love with Roger Maltbie yesterday, I am all out of sorts. ...

2013 U.S. Open Preview & Predictions

Photo Credit: CHARLIE RIEDEL/AP It’s the start of the U.S. Open. The best day of the year for most golfers because it means you’re even-par and tied with the rest of the field for at least a bit. But some golfers might as well go home now to save the embarrassment. Even though technically everyone in the field has the chance to raise the trophy on Sunday, only a select few really...
