Winning Putt Odds

Winning Putt Odds - Ryder Cup 2012

With the Ryder Cup comes a number of excellent betting markets for punters to get involved with, perhaps the most interesting of these is the Winning Putt Odds. The players from both the European and Americans teams will be dreaming of holing the winning putt on Sunday afternoon, only one can achieve it and there is some great value available for punters.

In recent years there have been a number of famous winning putts holed during the Ryder Cup, memorable moments include Paul McGinley holing the winning putt at the Belfry in 2002.  Another famous winning European putt was that of Colin Montgomerie in 2004, on away soil Monty held his nerve to claim the point and he will be hoping another European can do the same in 2012.

This is of course an extremely difficult market for punters to guess correctly but there are some pointers worth taking note of before a bet is made. It is worth considering which of the players from each team will be the ones picked to play later on in the day on Sunday evening. Normally the Captains will try to leave some of their better and more experienced players further down the draw to hold their nerve when under pressure. With that in mind we are going to see the likes of Lee Westwood, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Luke Donald all well backed in this market among others.
