What's The Best Open Golf Betting Strategy - a tenner outlay.

Do I put it on a certain young man from Ireland or split it on 10 seasoned 50/1 shots?

Take the tenner, fold and put in pocket.- guaranteed to get at least ten pounds in your pocket.

Yes he is playing but although on a good run still lacks experience 8-1 for him and maybe not worth a £10 bet hence the 5 I picked will have a chance at good prices.

The best out of my selections would be Phil Mickelson and although going through a bad patch at the moment has a good chance of winning it if he plays to his best form.

That is only my selections and I am sure there are lots out there that would disagree.

lets hope it is on Live TV so that we can all watch it.

My friend spent 2 years, adamant that he would get me to play the game, he took me to driving ranges where I watched him hit the ball straight and true, many a mile.

Every time it was my bucket of balls, 0 zip nada, best effort? Probably about 2 feet. When I "accidentally" did actually hit the thing, it took an amazing almost right angle turn as it left the tee, Rose majestically over the fence, and vanished.

That was the last time I hit a golf ball, and it was many decades ago. I spent the rest of the day hoping I hadn't injured anyone!

Although a great player, Lefty or Phil Mickelson by his better known name has a tendency to be erratic off the tee. As Sandwich is a links course, the rough will be waiting for him.

Poulter is known more for his snazzy dress attire than his golfing skills so don't waste your money on him.

Donald is playing really well at the moment, winning last weeks Scottish open and previously at Wentworth in May or June so he is worth a punt. He is not known for entertaining golf, he just gets on with it and is a master playing into the green.

Mcilroy is indeed playing and this is his first tournament since winning the US open earlier this year where he ripped up the course and the competition, I believe he will be favourite for this competition.

A dark horse in my eyes could be a certain Matt Kuchar, an American fellow who has finished in the top ten of the fifteen events he has entered this year. He is worth a punt, good luck.

Buteman's tips - I will go for Mickelson and Cabrera to win. 8 quid left. Al's tip - Kuchar. 7 to go. Crosstrainer2 - McIlroy - a banker. Robert Rock and Richard Green - my fancies. 4 quid left. Going to bookies soon.

Perfect, could not agree more. Not a betting guy so will just get glued to the box for four days!

Why not organise a "Sweep" as when the Grand National is running. Get a group of your friends to contribute ten quid each and choose a name, winner takes all or have second, third and fourth places? At least then you would know that one of your friends has the money (your tenner included) and maybe he will buy you a pint out of his winnings.

Or do as you intend, waste it at the bookies.
