Just a couple of days now until the second major of the year gets underway at Merion Golf Club, the first time it’s been held there since 1981 when it was won by Australian David Graham.
So we don’t know a huge amount about the golf course or how players have performed there in the past, so when it comes to betting it’s very difficult to pick a winner here.
The last 5 years have seen different styles of winner:
2008 – Tiger Woods
2009 – Lucas Glover
2010 – Graeme McDowell
2011 – Rory McIlroy
2012 – Webb Simpson
2013 – ?
But there is someone who has a bit of form around this golf course, Rickie Fowler played exceptionally well when he played there in the Walker Cup in 2009. So my betting tips are as follows…
Rickie Fowler 67/1
Graeme McDowell 23/1
Rory McIlroy 23/1
Good luck if you have a bet, and enjoy watching the golf!
